Let’s Have a SHAMROCK HUNT!

I had a completely different post for today….but I stumbled upon this idea and I JUST HAD to get it out there!

One of my friends posted this on Facebook…

The idea is:  We are all going to be practicing social distancing over the next few weeks, so let’s have some fun!

Get outside or GO FOR a FAMILY DRIVE and SHAMROCK HUNT!

All you have to do is put a SHAMROCK in your window on Tuesday , March 17th….

COLOR IT, PAINT IT, CUT IT OUT, Whatever you want!

Put it up in your Window and Walk Around your Neighborhood or Go for a Drive and Find others!  Post Your Pictures when you Find them!

I thought I’d help facilitate it by giving you some ideas!

An Irish Blessing: Free Printable or Graphic

I may not be Irish…

 

(Well, I don’t think I am….I haven’t done a 23 and me so, I guess I can’t really be certain)

 

Either way, I have always loved this poem. 

A prayer for you. 

A blessing for your loved ones as you part.

I created this graphic for you to use.  Free of charge. 

You pay print it, share it….whatever you’d like.

 

***I may have also made a bonus graphic for my email subscribers too. 😉 I’m just so thankful you’re all here!***

St Patrick’s Day in the Shop

Happy SPRING Forward Day! 
I hope you are all surviving on one less hour of sleep!  Not going to apologize for it, though, because I got to shave off ONE HOUR of work…so just remember, it’s allll about perspective 😉

Anywhoodle, it’s Sunday in the Shop here, and that means, I’m taking the time to highlight some of the items I have up for sale.  St. Patrick’s Day is the Holiday ‘O the Month of March….and here is what I have in stock yet:

 

Set of 3 Reusable Snack Bags in St. Patty’s Day prints! 

They are fully lined with PUL fabric (which is what you would find lining washable/reusable cloth diapers).  The closure is Velcro, and to clean, I recommend either hand wash and dry OR flip them inside out and throw them in the wash machine!  

Next up, I have this adorable Size 2T, Upcycled Tshirt Dress

Who can resist that Rainbow and CandyLand Fabric!?!?!

The ever SO popular TRIPLE RUFFLE SKIRT

I have this one ready to ship in a Size 4T, but when I say 4T, it will really fit much longer, since this pattern runs large.  Think size 4-6 girls 🙂

Which little girl is going to get to wearthis Size 4/5 Upcycled Tshirt Dressthis St. Patty’s Day? ……Uuuuummmmm, THE LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD!

And, who’s got a Little Irish Sweetie that wears a Size 7/8?  Because I’m pretty sure she NEEDS this Upcycled Knit dress!

Last, but most certainly NOT least, I have one moreSt. Patrick’s Day Mixed Fiber Dress in a Size 10/12.  All ready to ship!

 

That’s all I have left for ye Irish folk!  But there are LOTS more listings available if you want to browse the shop at any time!  Scroll UP….click that SHOP button in the menu and have at ‘er!  (I already have a few Easter Goodies listed…)

Next up I’ll be getting New Inventory ready for Easter….Baseball Season….and Spring in general!  

Let me know what you’re looking forward to….

What would you like to see me make?

Flashback Friday: Lucky Craft from the Vault

One of the things I am most excited about is sharing with you some of my old blog posts from “For What It’s Worth…or Not” from way back when…
So, on Fridays I’m going to treat you to some Flashbacks!
It’s crazy to think that this was originally publish on March 8, 2011.
NINE YEARS AGO?!?!?!  woah. that can’t be, I remember this so vividly….
At any rate, here you go….no editing, just raw content here.  I totally STILL have this frame, and it’s part of my yearly March decor. 🙂
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Find an early-90’s Home Interior Special picture frame
(or any old frame you are not particularly fond of)
and paint it Green
Pick up some wooden letters at your local craft store
These came in a pack of 2….
so a lucky someone is going to get a surprise from me soon
Paint them Green
Make the U into a Horseshoe by drawing a little design
(Hint: if you go with a lighter green, you can use a permanent marker to draw on it, otherwise, you’ll have to use a paint pen or paintbrush)
Arrange your letters in any way you’d like on a piece of cardstock
I used the “LOVE” sign as inspiration
Place in your frame, and show off your last-minute creativity
If you don’t make this craft you will have 7 years of bad luck and every time you wear the color green a bird will poop on your head….even in the middle of winter.
Just Kidding!
(it will only be 6 years)
