In Other Words: Handmade

Once I painted tee shirts and sweatshirts and cute baby onesies;

I traced patterns of hearts and flowers and cupcakes and fishies.

People complimented me on my handmade creations,

But when I added up my expenses versus sales,

It became Lucy Ricardo’s salad dressing adventure.

  3. I like making things, but then don’t know what to do with them. Well, that was a long time ago. I remember the Lucy episode with the salad dressing…good idea, but so funny how it turned out. 🙂
