IPYPIASM still going strong right through the holidays

International Put Your Poem In a Shop Month is not just for Christmas - it's for the whole month of December, so there's loads more time to take part while you fight your way through the beginnings of the sales or simply try to remember what a normal grocery shopping trip used to consist of, now you don't have to worry whether you have the exact sherry that Auntie Desdemona likes to drink, nor do you need that large box of tayto.

This just in - Peter Goulding has an inspirational little number up beside some slabs of Coca Cola!! - click here for the full story


Emerging Writer got a few real gems up in the Supermarket yesterday, head on over to her blog here to find out exactly what is written on these cards

To cheer those with Colds and Flu


To add some sweetness to a lemony drink


To warm up the cold fruit section


To add some real glamour to the poetically named shampoos and gels area.

Next head over here to welcome and congratulate our latest IPYPIASM placer - a wonderful blogger named Hope is bringing Joy to the cleaning section of stores in the US of A - our third American friend to join in. Do click over to read the heart warming sentiment on her card - something some lucky someone will no doubt pick up and treasure as one of their sweetest gifts of the season!



Get on out there now folks - and don't forget to tune in to the Sunday Scrapbook Xmas Special this weekend, perhaps play it on your head phones while placing your next poem, it'll give you courage - more details on that below.

IPYPIASM is genius Niamh :) If I'd been able to actually get to a shop any time in December I'd have joined in. Maybe before the month is out...

Failing that, I may cheat a little and have a IPYPIAPM - The meaning of the last P will be revealed...
