A Poem!

I saw this poem on someone’s blog. I am sorry but I can’t remember where I got it! But I love this and wanted to share if with you!

A card maker delivers the most welcome kind of unannounced visitor: a handmade card. A card touches us – somehow, a small folded piece of paper can comfort, celebrate, reach out or just say HELLO! Creating a handmade card is an honorable and important task. As a card maker, you are entitled (but not limited) to the following rights:

You have the right to take as long as you want to complete one handmade card. This may be five minutes or two weeks.

You have the right to send a card for no other reason than to show off your new stamp, embellishment, or technique.

You have the right to create a fabulous card for your husband, partner, or roommate – just because you know it will stay in your house.

You have the right to spread your card making things out all over just to admire them.

You have the right to purchase a certain card making item for no other reason than because a you like it; b you think it’s cute; c) you’ll never find it again, or d) you know you’ll use it someday!

You have the right to reserve using your most precious supplies on cards only for recipients who will truly appreciate them.

You have the right to a workspace of your own. This may be the basement, your college student’s old bedroom, or the kitchen table.

You have the right to make cards when inspiration strikes ~ whether the dishes are done or not.

You have the right to request peaceful, kid-free, stress-less card making time – GUILT-FREE!

You have the right to let the handmade card be the gift too!

You have the right to value your personal style.

You are creating a treasure and part of that treasure is you!

To all the carmakers out there…thank you! Happy New Year

I like this--especially the guilt free part. It makes me want to stamp today, even though I have heartburn so bad I feel like I have a golf ball in my throat. But ink and paper sounds nice...
