A Writer's 12 Days of Christmas

My silly rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas for the writer...and because I am terrible at rhyming, I made every other line the length of the number of days it follows. Yeah, that probably makes no sense, but bear with me and don't roll your eyes. This is my  Christmas offering to YOU!

Thanks, Beth. I was thinking this is poorly written, but it sure looked cute! lol

Sherrinda said...

Jeanne, you are welcome. I'm terrible at rhyming and making things make sense, but I am a bit artistic, so I thought the Christmas Tree shape would help it out alot!

Sherrinda said...

Joanne....YESSSS! I made someone giggle. Always a goal of mine. :)
