My Irish is up...

I made a few of these this weekend while I was snowed in for my kid's teachers. I love those see-through paint cans! (Archiver's). I grew up in a very Irish Catholic household, so St. Patrick's Day is a big deal to me and my family. (But honestly, any reason to make corned beef and drink green beverages is cause for celebration!)This, along with green shredded and crimped grass, was on the inside:
And I plan on adding one of these along the side of the can with a note. Got these from Elles. Love her.
And these were hers, too. Perfect for that shower gift...
I couldn't leave these out...I tried them last year and when I found them at Target today, I was so excited! I'm not a huge mint fan, but these are surely delish...
And speaking of St. Patrick's Day, it will be special here, so be sure to check in that day. Take this hint, people.
Okay, back in the morning with a sneak of the April Project kit, featuring the Scenic Route Grafton line. Promise!

Hi, I've just happended upon your blog, and so glad I did! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us on St Patricks Day! As an Irish gal, I find it fascinating at just how many people celebrate our National Holiday! Go n-eirí an t-ádh leat!
