Have I Gone Too Far?

The creative process in The Crooked Stamper house is a little off-center. Or off-the-wall, to quote one of my favorite singers. He wrote a song entitled "Off-the-wall Music" to demonstrate how his creative process sometimes works, and one of those is like a simple stream of thoughts that just kind of flows, and may not make a lot of sense, but it mostly rhymes. Well, my dear readers, that is how this beast came into being.

It started when I was making a copy of something last night on my printer/copier/fax machine, and since we all know I never put anything away, I spotted the partially-used DCWV Dog Scrapbook Kit, with a piece of paw-print paper sticking out of it. I gazed at the paw prints, and wondered if they'd fit in the 3/4" circle punch. So I grabbed it and as I passed by the bookcase, I saw my not-put-away Season of Friendship stamp set. The only time I have used this set was when I punched out the leaves ... with the 3/4" circle punch. Can you see where this is going?

Paw prints ... partially-used Dog scrapping paper set ... tree ...punch ... leaves ...and my brain went to "Dogwood". I cannot explain that, it just happened. You probably do not want to know how my brain works.

So here's the card:

Too much? Ya think? Do you think anyone would buy it? Sigh ... I think I need a hobby. Oh, wait, this IS my hobby. Let me work on that.

  1. That is funny! I bet it probably would sell at your market...lots of dog lovers shop there, don't they?


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
