    I’m wonderin’ what santa, brought just for me;

    Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
    or a cricut? I said with a smile on my face!

    and that’s when I heard him…”HI SANTA,” I said.
    ”you know good little girls should be in their beds”.

    I know I should santa, and now I’ve been caught!
    but I was excited, to see what you brought.

    well, lets take a look in this room where you work.
