Poetry Friday-Holiday Expos & Etsy Shop

1-EAC EXPO installation 11-2018

Welcome to my Holiday Post Extravaganza

with a bit of poetry mixed in too!


Holidays afoot come view my
fine artful fashions,
The images I’ve drawn are sure
to pique your passions.

They’ll sparkle, and they’ll delight you
from morning till night,
Bring those sugary plum fairies
right into your sight.

Melt away your woeful worries
leave you in sweet bliss,
With fine fanciful images
you won’t want to miss.

Settle back in that grand chair, that
one oh so cozy,
Drift away to your dreamland with
thoughts only rosy,

If you care to take a peak, my
wares may amaze you,
I’m poised and properly ready
to fulfill your queue.
