I bring you a new download today in honor of St. Patrick’s Day: shamrock confetti (or table scatter or decorations). More »
St. Patrick’s Day is nearly upon us, so I bring you a few more ways to decorate your home or office. Today’s file is a set of shamrocks that you can use for garland. The first page has the shamrocks connected in rows; print and cut, then connect each row with your favorite adhesive. The second page of the PDF has the second image, just shamrocks on a page. Print and cut, then use them with your own paper or string for garland, or use them in any other fashion you can think up! The third page of the PDF has a bunch of rows of green strips, just in case you don’t have green paper on hand (and want it.) More »
Click. Save. Print.
Enjoy today’s printable cards. Cut them apart, write on the back, and give ’em to someone you love, or use them to embellish other projects. Have fun!
*note: right-click and ‘save target/link as..’ or open the pdf in a new/current window before you save. If you save the jpg, it will not print properly/at the right size.
It’s my favorite time of year, which means I’ve got some Ireland/St. Patrick’s Day goodies for you!
Try these papers on for size, either in your scrapbooking, home decor or gift wrapping projects. Send me photos of anything you make!
It’s officially spring now, right? Y to the AY. I love spring and fall; they’re the perfect warm ups to the heavy seasons.
I hope you enjoyed my Irish Love series on the blog the past few weeks. I had fun digging things up from dear old Pinterest, that’s for sure! If you didn’t catch all of the posts, or want to be able to root around them a bit, you can check out my entire board of St. Patrick’s Day ideas right here. URL: http://pinterest.com/jessamazing/st-patrick-s-day-ideas. I’m now officially removing the “Irish Love” shamrock link from the top left of the blog. If you decide you want to seek the posts out, you can always do a search from the sidebar or top of the blog.
In other news, I either caught another cold or reverted back to feeling really ill after a great Friday of feeling totally fine. I spent all of Sunday in bed and called in sick to work today. My head still hurts but the rest of me is starting to feel better. However, I don’t want to take any chances, so I have to take some action to stop this constant sickliness.
I chew my cuticles, touch my face, bite my nails, rub my chin and otherwise consume about a million germs a minute. I need to curb this habit because most of the time, I don’t even realize I’m doing it. That is the first rule of my “End Illness-catching 2k12” plan.
I started looking around Pinterest for some ideas- where else would I go? Why waste time on a basic Google search when I have millions upon millions of pinners to rely on?
I found this miracle drink, although it might take some courage to whip up and consume:
I’m also thinking of making some hot, hot water in my favorite coffee mug and then putting some Theraflu Powder in it to dissolve. Once that gets going, I like to put a towel over my head and keep my face directly above the mug to catch the fragrant and medicinal steam that comes from it. Once the steam quits fuming, the drink is cool enough to consume so then you get a double bonus because the medicine actually goes into your body. I love that stuff and will swear by all the Theraflu products until the end of time. Their warming nighttime cough syrup has gotten me through several severe colds and helped me actually sleep through the night on Saturday. Thanks chaps! You rule. 🙂
The common themes seem to be lemon, ginger and honey. I will have to keep that in mind.
I hope you manage to stay well and enjoy the spring! Hopefully the warm and lovely weather is here to stay!
For day 2 of Irish Love, I wanted to share a favorite little snack with you. We all know about the Girl Scout Cookies that have invaded America in the past month or so, and this treat is inspired by those girls in green.
Make your own thin mint-y cookies with a few simple ingredients.
You will need:
- Approx 1 tsp peppermint extract
- 1 box of Ritz Crackers or similar
1 package of melting chocolate- I used the small discs from Michael’s but I’ve also made it with a big brick of chocolate bark. I always choose milk chocolate, but I’ve been told many times that it’s better with dark (I just don’t prefer it.)
- Cookie sheet
- Cooling rack or wax paper
- Bowl for the chocolate
And for those of you who might fancy using my Irish Love graphic, here’s a simplified version to grab:
