Some Things to Share

PosieNovember 14, 2007

Since I've been "stickin' my nose " in this forum, I thought I'd share some things with the rest of you....so here goes ! I make a little Christmas Boot from different colored felt, about 4 inches tall and shaped like a regular boot, stitch around it in a decorative stitch and then add a cuff on the top from white Fun Fur. Inside I stick a copy of this poem.....

"I'm just a tiny little boot,

not very large or bold,

but I am large enough to hold

all kinds of Christmas LOOT ....

Such as:

Diamond Rings

Gold Bracelet

Keys to a new Car

Tickets to a show

A hundred dollar bill

Silver necklace.....OR

OTHER THINGS I NEED !

My Daughters loved them ! You can change the items as you want.

I found some tiny Teddy Bears at a craft store, they are only about 3 inches tall but cute. I made up a poem to go with them:....

"I'm just a real tiny Teddy

As sweet as I can be,

Put me in your pocket

And carry me with 'thee',

I'll share all your hurts

And worries and woe,

A better kindred Spirit

You will never know.

Talk to me, sing to me,

Tell me your cares.

I know you will love me,

For I'm your "Stress Bear"!

I also shortened the Pine Cone Fable. I'm painting my large cones silver and attaching a ribbon and this little "story".......According to a fable told in a land far, far away.........if you find a SILVER PINE CONE you will have good luck and good fortune for many a year and day.

Hope you all can use these. I have another one about "Jack Rabbit Milk" which is funny if anyone is interested.

I hope I'm not intruding here, but really love this site.

JACK RABBIT MILK IS: A joke. I found some little cans about the size of Tomatoe Sauce cans, and printed this lable and put them on the cans. You need to measure your labels to fit the cans. I really don't know how or where I got the cans as it was a few years ago. Maybe attaching a false bottom to an opened can would work (use foil), somehow.Or perhaps a person could use small bottles that you have saved or half-pint jelly jars,or baby food jars.
