craft crimes


have you ever wondered who the craft police are? or better yet, where they are? i was thinking about this, and it occurred to me that if craft police are out there, then there must be lots of craft crimes going on......petty crimes......like not washing out your paintbrushes when you're finished doing some creative work in your journal......or using brads when you should've used eyelets......or maybe you've tested out markers on the craft store shelves because they don't have the sense to put test paper out.....or maybe you're like my friend sonny "inky-fingers" calzoni who doesn't take the time to clean off his rubber stamps after he uses them......

oh, yes, i must admit that i'm guilty of more than one of these craft crimes. but i'm not going to tell you which ones....after all, you never know when the craft police may be watching.....

i thought not cleaning craft supplies would help the economy, a 'stimulus' for the supply side, nearly?

How about not putting the cap on your glue stick, or forgetting to put your craft apron on and getting paint on your new shirt, or dipping your paint brush in your cup of tea instead of your jar of water? Not me...no, not me!!! LOL!! Thanks for the giggles, Lori!!

PaperPumpkin said...

You're so funny, lori! I left my glue stick uncapped overnight...and lost my other one. oops.

How cute and clever to have created your own character. It looks like you've been having a lot of fun with your sketching.

Pat said...

This is hilarious! You could make a whole series of wanted posters. I am completely guilty of crafty crimes...they should lock me up and throw away the key.

Tara said...

This is such a clever post and so funny. I love your poster drawing. Yes, I too am guilty! Happy creating...

Martha Lever said...

Lori, how do you think of such funny and clever things? You make me laugh. This is so cute. I do hope the craft police doesn't have me under surveillance because I am sure a bust is imminent.
See you Friday?

OH no- I am the "never clean her brushes girl" BAD, really bad- like the water turns to sludge.

Cute post :)

Elena said...

Teri Leigh said...

I love this. I'm laughing just thinking of the craft police and all they would catch me doing.

rachel awes said...

so clever & hilarious!!

Sara said...

haha. simply hilarious, lori! I must confess..i always clean my paint brushes, but i rarely clean my paint tray. if i wait until the next day...the acrylics will just peel right off of the plastic. much easier to clean up this way :)

Lisa Holtzman said...
