  1. My favorite thing to drink while crafting is either coffee or water. I drink both when I craft, and I have to be very careful NOT to spill them.. LOL

  2. I like to have a cup of coffee or tea while I am doing my hobbies of sewing or scrapbooking. Will be looking to try the stamping as it looks very interesting!

  3. I must have a can of Pepsi Max beside me and something sweet to munch on... however those sweet things need to be stain free... don't want to mark the creations.

  4. Coffee..... is there any other kind of drink? Usually I forget about it so it goes cold, but hey, I can always make another!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Can't go past chocolate in any way, shape or form, lol. I tend to get up for a drink as I am a bit paranoid about spills. :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. LOL - If it's midnight munchies it's potato chips and pepsi for me!

  7. I usually don't eat when I craft but will drink coffee. I'm often too busy crafting, so getting tea organised for the family may not be as well planned as the card I'm working on!! Here's a poem which I've changed the title to -'Crafting Woman's Kitchen Prayer'-

    Thank you, Lord, for mealtime help ...
    Spaghetti sauce in jars,
    Pre-mixed casseroles in boxes, breakfast squares and bars,
    For instant pudding and potatoes,
    Gravies, soups and teas,
    For frozen meals ... especially those with fewer calories,
    And, Lord, when there's no time to cook
    To still those hunger pains,
    Thank you for the miracle of all those fast-food chains!!

    LOL ;)

    A cup of hot tea served with Clinkers. No craft night would be the same without Clinkers!! Heaven help us if the local supermarket stops selling Clinkers. And by the way, pink is my favourite!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. It has to be the age old coffee. Or maybe a cup of milo. No sweets for me generally, but a dip with some crackers can sometimes be found close by.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ooh Carolyn, love the idea of hot tea and Clinkers - will have to go get some when I do the school run. Go the green!!!!

    Actually I usually forget to eat when I'm crafting. If I get started on something before breakfast I'm in trouble!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I ALWAYS have a can of coke on my desk. Tend not to stop for food, unless it's chocolate :o)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ooh Bronwyn - loved your poem!! So true. And have a big craving for clinkers now too!

    I'm a coffee girl. At classes I have those chocolate eclair lollies out and I swear I usually eat half the bowl myself.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I stick to water or green tea when I'm crafting. (At least green tea doesn't taste too bad when it's gone cold)! Any thing sweet usually does the trick to keep the energy levels up! :)

    Hey Carolyn & Genna, we would have awesome crafting nights - I like the yellow clinkers best! (& HOT tea sounds divine!)

    ReplyDelete
  14. My husband comes into the craftroom and looks through all my draws and then if he can't find any chocolate or lollies he goes down town and buys me some, what a sweet man, he knows me so well LOL...to drink it is usually water, water, water too hot in the Northern Territory for me to drink tea or coffee, if late at night the water is usually in the form of ice with irish whiskey and pepsi, LOL!!!

    Cheers Katie

  15. When I'm crafting on my own, I definitely need a HOT cup of tea nearby (don't trust myself to not get food on the card, though, so I don't eat). At the monthly stamp nights I go to, not much stamping gets done on my behalf, but I devour plenty of coffee and chocolate!
    Bron, I love your poem - oh, so true!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Most definately a cup of tea and chocolate!!! lol. My adorable Son bought me a bar of chocolate yesterday when he went out which was very sweet of him. It keeps the energy levels up whilst we keep those creative juices flowing!!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't eat much while I'm crafting for fear of messy fingers but I always manage to take a chocolate break somehow.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ice coffee (commercially bought) - saves time on boiling the kettle (which would take away from valuable crafting time)!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. My cat seems to think that crafting time is all about him... I learnt the hard way that if there are food and drink anywhere near my crafting space it will get knocked over so I always give myself tea and celery/peanutbutter breaks!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't eat either!! I get so absorbed in crafting - food?? What food? Although I have to admit a good glass of red wine goes down very nice and get some creative juices going too!! (maybe thats why some things are crooked on my cards??!!)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Diet Coke and chocolate - I like to think that one balances out the other!!! The odd packet of Allens lollies is always handy as well. Margaret

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ooooh, I'm getting very hugry reading all these answers. bron, I love your poem - very true!!! I love to eat peanut m & m's. My hubby hates nuts so I get the whole bag to myself!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Usually have a bowl of lollies in the middle of the table which dont get touched much as we are too busy making things but coffee is a must.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love my rooibos tea and have several cups during a crafting session. I also like to have rice crackers to much on when I get peckish.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have my water bottle (prevents spill risk rather than a cuppa) and some sort of sugar in the form of jelly lollies or chocolate...........

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love to have a cup of tea in a thermal spill proof mug as it keeps it nice and hot for longer.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a Coke-a-holic!!
    The sugar and the caffeine keep me buzzing along until all hours!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. PEPSI-MAX all the way!!! and some special chocolate that I hide in my craft drawers!!! naught - i know!

    ReplyDelete
  29. that would have to be a mixture of cashews, sultanas and chocoalte chips....mmmmmmm!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I kid myself that if I'm crafting I can't eat - keeps my hands clean and busy! Always have a coffee. I have two favourite mugs - one green for chilling and inspiration and one red for super fast deadline work! Neither help much but the coffee does!

    ReplyDelete
  31. A good cup of tea with some choccies always goes down a treat!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Coffee if I am crafting at night and its a bit cold or a glass of red wine. But food is a must and Allen's Freckles are my fav, but really any chocolate is good.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I try to avoid eating while crafting or I end up with messy fingers - I know if you hold chocolate in your fingers long enough for it to get messy you are doing it wrong!

    I usually have tea or coffee, usually supplied by darling husband, and usually cold! I often forget to drink my drink, so when he comes to ask if I would like another, I have to skull down the first one cold (don't really mind cold tea or coffee, just got used to it over the years). I was the same with asignment writing!

    ps thanks for chosing me yesterday - I don't expect to be picked again but like playing along.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have an endless supply of Coke while I am crafting. Although I have learnt from experience to make sure that it is in a bottle not a glass, so I don't have any little or should I say big spills. And depending on how much time I have to craft I usually don't nibble on anything. Except if I am at all day workshops or my absolute favourite weekend retreats, then I make the effort to take a break and actually eat.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love a cup of herbal tea and a chocolate or two!

    Lisa

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's definitely diet coke and chocolate for me :) Any type as long as I can pop it in my mouth quick without getting mess on my hands or my artwork. It is usually a bowl of M&M Mix Ups, Crispy M&M's or chocolate peanuts ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Liptons Quietly Camomile or T2's Spi Chai tea for me ... but on the weekend it's a glass of wine ... and yes Kylie too much of a good thing and I too get the odd crooked line LOL

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am a truly spoiled woman!!!!!

    My darling husband delivers my cups of hot water to me at my desk.
    Boring drink for some but who complains when delivered with a beautiful smile.

  39. I don't tend to eat too much while I'm crafting, but guaranteed I'll probably polish of a can of Coke while I'm there! Reading through the replies, it seems that both Coke & Pepsi should be sponsoring Scrapbookers & Cardmakers around the world!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like to eat mixed nuts and drink tea. I can't live without tea :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Coffee or at night I drink tea...and I LOVE lollies with my craft...any will do I'm not fussy :-P

    ReplyDelete
  42. Day time coffee, night time Sauv Blanc, and there's usually a stash of good chocolate somewhere that I think is secret but probably isn't!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have coffee or tea regularly (regularly because it ALWAYS goes cold lol), I also like to have a small bowl with either peanut m&ms, OR jelly beans, depending on what mood I am in lol.

    ReplyDelete
  44. cheese, crackers and wine are best enjoyed with my stampin' buddy, also chocolate is often consumed mmmmmm I think they are calling me....

  45. My favourite snacks for crafting are chocolate and twisties and to drink I must have my coffee!
    cheers, Rhonda

    ReplyDelete
  46. MALTEASERS!!!! YUM, perfect bite size snack so no mess over my craft table! Actually they are good anywhere, anytime! And I generally just drink water as its in my SU drink bottle so no mess there either :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Peanut Butter and Jam Sandwiches. Not sure if it is preganancy craving.....or my tastebuds have gone bananas! No crusts either - can't have my hair going curly!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hmm I normally have my water bottle handy, but cups are dangerous as I usually end up putting paper scraps in them by mistake! As for eating - I tend to stick to jelly type lollies - snakes alive or the natural confectionary jelly beans!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Bring on a Coke to keep me awake in the wee hours while the kids sleep and I create.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I enjoy a nice cold glass of coke with a splash or more of Mr Jim Beam. Once glass does me all night.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My name is Joy, and I so love to have a cuppa tea with me whilst I work along with the naughty snacks like chocolate, who can go pass that one! I do however try to have a bottle of water handy so that I don't have to leave my little haven :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. A big mug of tea and a Scotch Finger shortbread biscuit...broken in half so the calories leak out and it becomes a non-fattening snack!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I most definately need to have a COFFEE!!! But because I get too involved in my project, it goes cold. Maybe one day I will be able to drink it while its still warm!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. A good ol' cup of tea when I'm crafting alone and Allen's Snakes Alive & Peanut M&Ms for classes with my 'stamping ladies' as my girls like to call them :)

    I may have to try out some of the other answers on here though... I had never thought to let the calories out of the Scotch Fingers by breaking them in half first - thanks Christine ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Just found the site! Looking forward to seeing the templates (haven't just yet). I'm majorly bummed that you can't ship outside Australia though! Good luck & I will go check out the goods now! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. coffee , chocolate and Anzac biscuits. YUUUUUMMMMMM

    ReplyDelete
  59. Coffee, even if it's cold... and any biscuits or jelly candy in the house....

    ReplyDelete
  60. Mini M&M's. I set out to make a sweet treats card but by the time I get around to it there usually all gone

    ReplyDelete
  61. It's always M&M's for me. I have an M&M dispenser on my desk and when I turn the handle a few come out....but sometimes I get frustrated so I take the lid off and then I can grab a whole handful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. There is usually a bottle of coke on my computer desk (lid firmly on) but on the craft table....no way, one too busy and the other what would I yell if it went over my craft work (I won't answer that one). Marls

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hi
    I like a good strong cup of tea and my hubby usually makes tea for me and my friends when we craft together. Lollies and chocolates like M & M's are always good to have on the table, however sometimes I actually don't eat them too busy!!!! (I know poor chocs NEED to be eaten - lol) Thanks Michelle Steen

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think Stampin Up should make a travel mug - all these comments of cold tea and coffee - they'd sell heaps LOL

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm all about the cheese! Gotta have some cheese and rice crackers on the end of my desk. Many a card has ended up with cheese on it...

    ReplyDelete
  66. WATER water and more water, must have lots of water, and then to make me love water, I love to snack on ice cream!! and it has to be ice cream with no caffeine, as much as i love it, it does not love me.

    Thanks
    Donna
