Last of the Limericks!!

Wow!  Sorry for the delay!  I've been a little sick.  My son has been a little sick....  Amazing how a few days of "time off" can put me back a couple of weeks!
So....  Here they are....  (drumroll please)  The last of the limericks.  I will (finally) be pulling names from a hat later today.  Don't forget to use your limerick coupon (if you wrote a limerick) it was supposed to expire on the 16th (tomorrow) but I'm going to extend it until the 20th.
ENJOY!

The mother who lived in the shoe
Must have wanted an hour or two
To just read magazines
And to lounge like the queens
But to rest would result in a coup

There was once a lady named Cara
Who yearned (like a burn with no aloe vera)
To fill her fingers with rings
That would make her heart sing!
(Even if tears of joy will ruin her mascara.)
 

"modern-day Gollum"
There was once a stranger on the Interweb
(just a nobody - certainly not a celeb)
But she wanted pretty rings
Oh, how they tugged at her heart strings
Her insatiable desire for shiny things shall not ebb.

and these 3 are from my good friends Emily and Tim (sorry guys, I had to leave the "x-rated" one out) Although you still seem to have plenty about squirts and spurts....   ;o)

2. I picked up my speed in a spurt
And ran and ran til it hurt
got weak in the knees
and let out a sneeze
but ended up having the squirts

3. I have a best friend named Tim
Who should move to Denver on a whim
I could see him daily
And we'd play so gayly
But sadly the prospect looks dim

4. There once was a wee little bird
Who stepped in an animal turd
I shouted alerts Of my dog's anal spurts
But my warnings that bird never heard

~Emily & Tim


And there you go!!  Last of the limericks (*sniff * sniff *) It's been fun!  I'll post the winners of the giveaway here and on my facebook page - so be sure to come back tonight or tomorrow morning!  If I happened to miss any limericks, please, please let me know so I can post them!

The Limericks keep coming in...

Thanks for the new limerick Roy!


You could win something like this!!
There once was a sale for a limerick.
It was not glimmer, glam, our other ick.
The contest afforded fans discounts.
For those who wish a jewel in this mount.
~Roy C.

I promised myself I'd stop shopping
Tried to scroll past your shop without stopping
But I'm like a magpie
The rings caught my eye
Shiny silver with sparkly gem toppings

~Holly

You could win something like this Mother of Pearl ring!
My Husband is always out fishing
One day he may come up missing
My Patience is thin
His outlook is grim
He's lucky he's so good at kissing;)

My Second Limerick!

You could win a ring like this Sunstone Stacker!!

I like to be on Etsy when I am Shopping
The pages so bright they are Popping
In the handmade scene
I so deeply glean
My cart's so full that it's Hopping

Thank you Meghan!!

Very first limerick of 2013!!

Or at least it's the first one I've found!!!

the owner of lunasa boutique
designed jewelry both rustic and chic
but with just one year until
she'd be over the hill
soon she too would look like an antique!


~Rachael Swiss

Thanks Rachael!!  I hope I don't look like an antique!!!

Guess what time it is?!? No... It's NOT Taco time.

You could win something like this!!!
8 days of limericks starts NOW! This 6th annual celebration of limericks marks my 7 year anniversary of selling on Etsy, 13 years of Lunasa Designs Jewelry, the Irish festival of Lunasa, AND my last birthday in my 30's (gulp). Make those limericks EXTRA good on August 8th (my birthday)!! I'll need all the laughter I can get
This year the rules are a little different:
Post your original (written by you) limericks on my facebook page, on twitter (@LunasaDesigns), send them to me in a convo on Etsy or to my email address... Or post them here in the comments.  Basically, any way you can find me (if you have to have your kid slip me a note during recess, that's fine too).
Every person who writes a limerick (or 25) will automatically get a coupon code for my etsy shop for a straight 30% off (A BIG discount in the art world! Not a big discount for Wal-Mart shoppers. sorry) You only get one coupon code BUT for every limerick you write you get your name put in a hat (I don't know what kind of hat yet) and at the end of the celebration (my birthday) I will pull names from the hat and give YOU gifts!! Sound good?! good. Now go write those limericks! and find me! and show me the limericks. You have 8 days....

Brooch a Week, a group on Flickr.

I think I'm up for a new challenge this year! After fighting a mystery illness for the past 3 + years, I finally have a semi-diagnosis (that's as good as it gets right now) and medication. I'm feeling better and am actually able to work in my studio for more than a few minutes at a time! I loved doing RAW (ring a week) a while back - and Brooches are something I've always enjoyed making - SO..... Brooch a week it is! If you want to join the challenge, check out the flickr page. First brooch is due on Sunday, the 6th. Wish me luck!

LAST day to send me limericks!!!

It is the very last day to send me limericks....  So sad!
Here are a few new limericks from the very talented Caity!

There once was a girl who wore bonnets

She spent all her days writing sonnets

but then one cold day

the snow got in her way

so she wrote her last sonnet upon it!



There once was a lady who knew

she had something important to do

so despite others' doubts

and the touting of touts

with a spark her light grew and it grew!



Thank you Caity!!

Nevada  Variscite ring.  In my shop!
