Poem written by Linda M. Bradshaw, copyrighted November 20, 2004
When I have time, I’m at my craft;
Some folks would say I’ve gone quite daft.
“Don’t throw that out!” they hear me say,
“I’ll find a use for that some day!”
Used gift wrapping, old cookie tin,
To throw it out would be a sin!
I’ll clean it up – it’s good as new!
Embellish it, that’s what I’ll do!
Jars and lids, bags, boxes and corks
Plastic bottles, old spoons and forks.
Scraps of fabric, buttons and bows
When will I use ‘em? Heaven knows!
Fancy scissors, glue and glitter
Time and space, with glee I fritter.
Patchwork quilting, beading, quilling;
Nooks and crannies, whole rooms filling!
Paints and ribbons, needles and yarn.
To store all that, I need a barn!
