I have to be honest here, I really don’t know a whole lot about St. Patrick's day. To me March 17 is just that one day a year you wear green so that you don’t get pinched. Growing up this wasn’t a holiday that my family focused on. My brothers birthday is March 16 and my birthday is March 18 so March 17 was just a day for my mother to recuperate between birthday celebrations.
This is actually the first year I have ever had acknowledged St. Patrick's Day with some home decor. It wasn’t by choice. It is actually kind of funny how this all came about. I was at Joann's the other week buying some fabric. I was in line to check out. After being in line for no longer than 30 seconds I looked down to find that my son had grabbed a package of glittery shamrock foam stickers from the dollar bins, he had torn the package open and was now sucking on the cardboard. (This happened just after I had circled the store 3 times looking for my sons socks and shoes which he had taken off without my knowledge. I was able to find both shoes but only one sock. I win mother of the year award that day.) Luckily the stickers were only a $1.00. I figured purchasing them was easier than trying to explain the situation.
I got home that day wondering what to do with these shamrock stickers… I finally came to the conclusion that a little holiday cheer wouldn’t hurt. I ended up creating a fun and easy…

Like I said… EASY! Now we have a reminder that there is something else to celebrate this month besides a few birthdays :)
