Wear green!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! I hope you are all wearing your green. I sure am. Have a lucky day and hope you find that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!


Here is a little green craft for you. Using a heart-shaped rubber stamp, create shamrocks on anything from cards to napkins or even fun placemats. Draw the stem on with a colored pencil or marker. Pictured here are swizzle sticks made out of cardstock cut into little stickers and glued onto a skewer. Perfect to stick in a drink or to jazz up fruit kebabs. Stamp shamrocks onto napkins as well and whip up a fun St. Patrick's Day meal. Thanks Martha!   

I will leave you with this Irish blessing:
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through

Happy St. Patty's day to you! Think it'd be weird if I made that craft at work? I'm 24. If you add 2+4 that's 6 and appropriate, right?

I'll just eat the cupcake.
