Joann Almquist – The Crafty Poet

Lately,  we’ve had one of our lovely customers, Joann Almquist, submit poems about our specials here at Create and Craft. Since Joann is a talented “Crafty Poet” we thought we’d share some of her greatest creations with you all. Keep reading for Joann’s latest literary works.

“Oh Hunkydory
Tells such a story
Foiled up in glory
So much that you can do

Papers of beauty
Are so multi-duty
Makes cards so special
That I can give to you

Love Hunkydory
That is my story
Happy to tell you
That I got mine, did you?”


“Rosella and her Baby Blue
Will cut some pretty dies for you
She’ll make some pretty cards and such
I love to watch her very much

With Tattered Lace you can’t go wrong
The dies are delicate but so strong
The lacy designs
Just blow my mind

As long as the dies are not too wide
The Baby Blue will take them in stride
You will be amazed at what it can do
So be sure to get one just for you.”

“Tattered Lace, oh me oh my
Which ones should I choose to buy
Borders and corners, and flourishes too
So many ideas for what I could do.”

Dear Rosella’s great demo’s show
How to use the dies very well you know
She’s full of simply grand designs
That I am sure to keep in my crafty mind.

I already have all the magazines
As well as many dies
But I’m placing my order for more right now
Tattered Lace makes cards that are really WOW!”

“Get your fabulous TODO
Don’t wait, get it now
You’ll find it is grand
You will love it, and how

The TODO machine is a work horse indeed
It hot foils, embosses, and cuts with ease
Your crafting will go up by leaps and bounds
Get  it home now, it is sure to please”
