Dit gedicht staat op het blog van een lieve blogvriendin van me, Pauline
Ik moest er erg om lachen.
Maar het is in het Engels, dus neem de tijd dit rustig te lezen en op je in te laten werken.
'T was the month before Christmas, when all through the night
Not a stamper was sleeping. The lamps were yet bright.
The projects were ready, planned out just so…
the cards, the scrapbooks, some tags…and a bow.
The house needed cleaning, the laundry not done,
“oh well” said the stamper, “making cards is more fun!”
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
made her wish that her Whisper White ink was not running low.
Sometime after midnight, around about two,
she laid down her markers; off to bed she then flew.
She was all warm and snuggled in her bed,
While visions of the UPS truck danced in her head.
The stamp sets, the papers, the glitter, the punches, the card stock, the ribbons,
“oh please, bring me bunches!”
The night, it was short ... but the dreams were so grand,
as she saw with her mind every project she planned.
Cards for birthdays and thank-you's and all kinds of greetings,
scrapbook pages with photos from parties and meetings.
As the first light of morning shone in through the curtain,
her wish list had vanished from the table ... she was certain.
But she did not realize that it had been taken,
by the one that she loved, who would soon be mistaken
for that round little fellow, so lively and quick,
you know, the one dressed in red, that some call St. Nick.
Well, he e-mailed her Stampin’ Up! Demo that day and he ordered each item,
to be delivered without delay.
Much to her surprise, on December twenty-fifth,
as she opened her package she found a most wondrous gift.
For inside the boxes were the products from her list,
everything was there, not one had been missed!
Every Idea Book & Catalog item that came in the door.
Yes, he wrapped exactly what she had asked for.
He was so happy and pleased with himself,
And she laughed when she thought of her demo as an elf!
She squealed with delight, leaped into the air,
wrapped her arms around her guy with the hug of a bear.
There's a moral to be learned if it's your stamper you want to please,
simply call up her demo, place an order with ease!
If you're a husband or friend, a sister or mother, a pal or buddy or significant other,
you can give such a gift to the one that you treasure,
a gift of supplies that will be such a pleasure.
To be delivered before Christmas, on that you can bet.
And it's sure to be the best gift that she'll get.
Ben erg benieuwd naar jullie reacties hierop en vergeet niet om ook even op het blog van Pauline te kijken, ze maakt erg mooie kaarten.
Mijn hobbykamer vordert gestaag, ik heb zoveel dozen nog uit te pakken en uit te zoeken dat ik denk de hele week nog bezig te zijn...
Maar ik werk hard, ik wil zó graag weer aan de slag!
Komt vast wel goed, hahaha!
Ik hou jullie op de hoogte en wens jullie een fijne zondag!
