Luck 'O The Irish

We decorate.


For some holidays.

The kids want to decorate for every holiday. (Guess what decorations the boy found for President's Day?!) So I oblige...with what I have in my craft room.

These things used to hang off of my welcome sign but then I got a cool bear to hang on the door and dress up so...a little drilling and a little wire and a new decoration is born.
(I just need to seal the glitter on the pots of gold so we aren't so shimmery.)

Dollar store frames. A coat of paint and some paper and cookie cutter stamps.
Shamrock tile
But the kids were so excited about St Patrick's Day this year. Lucky for me--their shirts from last year still fit. That NEVER happens!
This morning, the leprechaun made our pancake batter green. The kids were amazed.
Even Squirt liked them.
I made a new shirt for Squirt this morning. I decided to make it not a St Patrick's day shirt but just a cute shirt with green.
It turned out so cute that I think I might just buy her a bunch of onesies for her summer wardrobe...even if she does look a little like Popeye with those muscley arms.

What a great idea for the onesies. Squirt is such a doll.

You are one amazing crafty lady! S and I both wore green shirts today. We had corned beef on Monday because it was convenient. I suppose for St. Patrick's Day fun, I'll have to send my family up the street to your house!
