Do you want to feel like you’re back in a Junior or Senior High School English class? Did you love to write poetry as much as I did? (Not). Well, I challenge you to write a (stamping) limerick and post it as a comment (that little grey rectangular box in the upper right corner of this post). This is a no-prize-contest and the winner will be féted tomorrow, March 18th. Come on stampers……let’s have some fun. And if you’ve created a hand stamped St. Patty’s card or other project, share it too.
I was clueless as to how to begin writing a limerick when I started this post (true statement) so I started with a Google search. I checked out these two websites:
poetryamerica: http://www.poetryamerica.com/Limerick.asp (lots of side bar ads but really good rhyming information)
I managed and here’s mine:
THERE WAS ONCE A STAMPER NAMED BLYTHE
WHO WAS HAVING THE TIME OF HER LIFE.
SHE STAMPED ALL DAY LONG
AS SHE SANG A LOVE SONG:
“I LOVE WHAT I’M DOING ALL RIGHT!”
Please don’t judge me by my writing skill. But it was fun. I can’t believe (but maybe you can) that I wrote this ditty in less than ten minutes. I took a little bit of tips from each of the websites above and the rest is history.
Now, let’s see some of your limericks or St. Patrick’s Day crafting: card, 3-D, home décor. Have some fun with this lighthearted holiday.
