This is “Nevermore”. That is the name I have given him. Like the raven, tapping, tapping, tapping, this crow taunted me all afternoon. Was he tapping? Oh no. Worse. It was unassuming at first, just the “caw, caw, caw” of a simple crow. However, the cawing came closer and closer still until he was cawing, cawing, cawing outside my craft room window.
I have written a poem…
Once upon an afternoon dreary-while I surfed the web till weary-over many a blogs I’ve been meaning to explore-While I clicked, clearly stalling, there suddenly came a calling – as of someone clearly cawing, cawing at my craft room door-Quoth the raven “Craft Some More”.
He was clearly taunting me. Hopping up and down on his branch, puffy with disdain, staring in my window at me as I sat at my computer getting my daily consumption of the blogosphere.
So, not wanting to end up like the narrator of Poe’s poem. I decided to get my craft on. I’m pretty pleased with the outcome. I created a set of 5 cards of different color, but with the same pattern paper. The paper is from Basic Gray – the floral/paisley is from the sultry collection and is called “stylish”. The grid paper is from the basics white collection and is called manifest. The embellishments are from K&Company. They are fab if I do say so myself.
