St. Patrick’s Day!

So St. Patrick’s day is this Saturday! I don’t normally do much to mark the occasion, but this year I have felt inspired. I made these little felt 4-leaf clover pins, one of which I gave to my mom and another I am giving to my Gram (it is her birthday this Thursday on another big March holiday, the Ides of March! Okay, the day Caesar was killed is not a big holiday to anyone except those who were Latin class geeks in school. Like maybe I was). I think the third pin will be part of my first new blog mini giveaway! Details at the end of this post.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also found a project that even our middle schooler wants to do for the holiday! Ooh, you know it has to be good if it appeals to moms, tots, AND 12 year olds! Sugar Bee Crafts has these super fun paper Four Leaf Clovers/Shamrocks. They are made with strips of paper and a stapler. Talk about easy! We’re going to make a couple to hang in our entryway. Are you doing any special crafts or decorations for St. Patrick’s Day?

Okay, now time for the giveaway details. Here’s all you have to do to be entered:

  2. Oooh! How festive! I love that dark olive green color. The mug mat is really nice too! As a frequent tea drinker (and frequent tea spiller haha) that should come in handy!
    I already favorited your etsy shop and I subscribed to your blog in my google reader.
    Happy St Patrick’s Day! (a little early 🙂

  3. I liked FNS on Facebook, again I’m not sure why it took me this long, Thanks for waking me up to all the cool stuff you offer…:D

  4. I am now following your blog, I’m not sure why I wasn’t before, because I think you are a very cool person (I think I’ve just been overwhelmingly busy) so now I’m following you…:D

  5. These shamrocks are cool! I’ve made hearts that way, but not shamrocks.
    Love my pin! I was remembering on my way home yesterday that I made felt shamrock pins when you were young and they had sculpted faces in the middle. (The felt was cut out in the center and there was stocking material that the face was sculpted from) Seems a little creepy now, but I thought they were cute at the time. 🙂
