St. Patrick's Day

Well as I am writing this, I get to drink a Shamrock Shake. Fitting don't you think?? I know there are a lot of St. Patrick's Day ideas floating around. I wanted to post quickly an idea I had for my decor this year. I'm hoping to do a recap of anything I try after the holiday.

I like the idea I used with the Christmas clearance garland and Valentine's Day. Well when I picked up the red I also picked up green (planning ahead and hoping maybe to add Easter to the green as well.) I cut out from my Cricut a bunch of shamrocks. I used my new Designer Calender cartridge. I did about 12 at 5 1/2 inches on my cricut and when I borrowed a friends to do party things I did more at 8 inches. I took the idea I got from Skip to my Lou Blog to sew through the paper again. This is a great way to get more dangleing items. I took 4 of the small shamrocks and made a string together and then did the larger ones by themselves. If I'm smart someday soon I'll get some invisible thread when I buy thread (or double check my christmas present - my grandmothers old sewing box full of thread). I think it worked out well again. I have to enjoy the St. Pat's decor for a little bit since I'll be decorating for a princess party shortly, with many pictures to come.
