Happy 70th Birthday to my Aunt Joyce

October 27, 2007

I think its safe to post this now since the luncheon is today and they are in California.  I wanted to make something special for my aunts 70th so I decided to make one of my candy bar poems.  I've made them for several years now on special occassions for both friends and family.  I usually put all the candy bars in something that pertains to the person, but since this had to travel to California I wanted to put it in something sturdier.  So I found this bucket at Hollos and began making my gift.


Not the greatest picture of the bucket...

Here is the poem I wrote her:


Dear Aunt Joyce,

This is your day! TAKE 5 because you need no REISEN

To celebrate and turning 70 is nothing to SNICKER about.

In fact, this is when you have BUTTERFINGERS

And your mind starts playing TWIX on you.

You’re WHATCHAMACALLIT isn’t working properly,

You’ll do things NOW & LATER

And forget them both.

You’ll even begin to swear on PAYDAYS that

You made 100 GRAND when in fact

It was only SKITTLES.

So when looking back on the days of your life,

Remembering all the SMARTIES and NERDS

And those AIRHEADS on 5th AVENUE.

Think of the fun shared with your friends

And all the CHUCKLES you shared with your


Because whether at the SNO CAPS or a SYMPHONY

You’ve been a LIFESAVER to so many.

Hope your birthday leaves you with

Happy Birthday

Love, Tina



Then my cousin was also making her a scrapbook, so we all sent a page to help fill the book.


That was probably the last time I was able to wear overalls?

I put more recent pictures and my journaling in the pocket that comes out of the picture.   This was part of my September Work in Progress Kit
