I've been tagged

Hi everyone,

I got tagged by Rachel (my darling mum), which means I've got to say 7 facts about me, so here it goes:

1: My Chinese new year sign is a snake and my horoscope sign is Virgo, which sounds quite weird.

2:I have a boyfriend, who is called Chris W, who i love very much and been with since Oct 06.
3: I love rubber stamping and glitter: I've been stamping for 3 years and borrow lots of my mum's stamps and she shares mine :D

4: When I'm crafting, somehow I always make a mess on the table or glitter all on the floor.

5: I love cooking: mostly desserts.

6: My favourite colour is dark blue but i love most blues. :D

7:I love poetry and my favourite poems are below:

by Carol Ann Duffy

Not a red rose or a satin heart.

I give you an onion.
It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.
It promises light
like the careful undressing of love.

It will blind you with tears
like a lover.
It will make your reflection
a wobbling photo of grief.

I am trying to be truthful.

Not a cute card or a kissogram.

I give you an onion.
Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,
possessive and faithful
as we are,
for as long as we are.

Take it.
Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding ring,
if you like.
Its scent will cling to your fingers,
cling to your knife.

Please Mrs Butler: by Allan Ahlberg

Please Mrs Butler
'This boy Derek Drew
Keeps copying my work, Miss.
What should I do?

Go and sit in the hall, dear
Go and sit in the sink.
Take your books on the roof, my lamb.
Do whatever you think.

Please Mrs Butler
This boy Derek Drew
Keeps taking my rubber, Miss.
What shall I do?

Keep it in your hand, dear.
Hide it up your vest.
Swallow it if you like, my love.
Do what you think best.

Please Mrs Butler
This boy Derek Drew
Keeps calling me rude names, Miss.
What shall I do?

Lock yourself in the cupboard, dear.
Run away to the sea.
Do whatever you can, my flower.
But don't ask me!

so, that's my 7 facts on me, now I have to tag 5 people and I've tagged:

Nature envelope book

Hi everyone,

I made a nature envelope book on winter. I crinkled the envelope first then I used tim holtz and Adirondack ink pads in broken china and faded jeans and used some embossing powders: holographic, blue glass, winter wonderland and silver. On the insert I put a "stamps Happen INC.""Winter longs to linger"stamp, which is one of my favourites, my mum has had the stamp for a while. This page will be put into a nature envelope book and be put in auction for to raise money for The Lymphoma Association.
