Dear Creatives, Well this weekend is St. Patrick’s day. Do you do anything for it? In my house there will be some cupcakes, maybe an Irish Stew & I am sure the Mr. may indulge in a beer. I’ll tip my hat to my long gone grandfather from County Clare, Ireland & wear one of my mom’s Irish pins in her memory. She always wore green in a stylish way on St. Patrick’s day & I always told her when I forgot to I didn’t need to since I have green eyes. (it was a running joke when I was a kid) Now onto the creativity & Feature Friday Link Up!
Now this cute little figurine made of paper-clay is created by a talented artist & crafter Michelle Laurtisen who writes the blog A Pinch of Prim & has an Etsy shop also know as A Pinch of Prim. I have been swooning over her little statues she creates & from the looks of it so do many others. If you see something you like they go like hot cakes!
There have been a few things I am thinking of reworking possibly this weekend like a new badge for the blog hop, along with some other things. I actually have a few posts I meant to share with you earlier so stay tuned for a bit extra this week & I have a giveaway coming up! Well, enough chatting let me share a few things that are inspiring my creativity, including things from last weeks blog hop.
Spring Messages Rubber Stamp Set – Set of 16
It has been awhile since I have done any stamping & these cute stamps caught my eye! They are over at the PaperSource.
Now seeing this wreath makes me want to create a spring wreath for my front door but, if you aren’t crafty you could just buy one. I did make a spring banner if you didn’t see that post it’s right here along with a tutorial & I made it a no sew so anyone can make one. Spring Banner Tutorial
Now onto Feature Friday!
Girl Gone Green
From last week Girl Gone Green submitted a recipe for mini raw vegan carrot cakes! How yummy these treats look & healthy too! If you haven’t met Girl Gone Green before be sure & visit her. I love her page about Why Go Green, She writes about all things related to being green & then off topics too. One of her recent topics that caught my eye was her post on International Women’s day called Strong, Touch, Dirty & Still Beautiful She shared on that post some videos about how the media affects girls & women’s self image…..
