I NEED MORE.......

I started out with just one stamp,
and when I bought some more
I decided that a shoe box
would make an ideal store.
then as I added inks and pens
my stamping collection grew
So I bought a roomy plastic crate,
It would last a few years, I knew.
Embossing then became my thing
With powders and heat gun,
Metallics, tinsels, pearls and clear,
I soon had every one.
By now my lovely plastic crate
Was spilling everywhere
And my glitter glue collection
Lay scattered on a chair.
My husband started muttering
And said things had to stop,
So I bought a huge old wardrobe
At the local charity shop.
But after just a little while
I couldn't shut the door
And put shelves up in the spare room
To accommodate yet more!
Our house is now for sale,
Something larger being sought,
By the way, did I show you
The latest stamp I just bought.............

I have had this poem for years and have no idea where it came from. I know all of you out there will be saying 'ouch' I know this person. I just 'broke the camel's back' today and bought a Big Shot. There is absolutely no space in my little workroom for it so I think the combi boiler just has to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!
