Laurie LaRose Creative Stampin' Up! Projects

Flashback to 2009, an early Spring type card. I'll try to make an updated version of this card with the soon to be retired set Forever Young. Similar sort of tree and swing idea. Come on back and see what I come up with!
In the meantime, have a read at this sweet little poem I found on the internet that seemed the right timing to share, just in time for the start of a great Mother's Day Weekend!
To Moms everywhere:

If You Give A Mom A Muffin
by Beth Brubaker

If you give a mom a muffin,
she’ll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She’ll pour herself some.
Her three year-old will come and spill the coffee.
Mom will wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she will find dirty socks.
She’ll remember she has to do laundry.
When she puts the laundry into the washer,
she’ll trip over shoes and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan supper.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She’ll look for her cookbook
(How to Make 101 Things With a Pound of Hamburger.)
The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow.
She will look for her chequebook.
The chequebook is in her purse,
which is being dumped out by her two year-old.
Then she’ll smell something funny.
She’ll change the two year-old.
While she is changing the two year-old, the phone will ring.
Her five year-old will answer and hang up.
She’ll remember she was supposed to phone a friend
to come over for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup.
She will pour herself some more.
And chances are,
if she has a cup a coffee,
her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.



  1. Love If You Give Your Mom a Muffin story!! How cute and how true!

  2. My Girls and I love the series of books this must have been based upon by Laura Numeroff, so when I saw this poem, I wanted to share it, for sure.
