Hello March...

Hello March and all that you bring us. The hope of Spring as the plants and trees begin to bud with new life. Daffodils are sprouting forth from the ground and the blossoms are unfurling to show their bright burst of beautiful yellow.
For us here in the United States we have St. Patrick's day to celebrate on March 17th. We eat and drink green colored food and beer. We color our rivers with green in honor of the day. We wear green clothing.
We look for Leprechauns and rainbows and the ever-elusive pot of gold.
We love four leaf clovers and shamrocks. I have made a shamrock-like pin to wear so that I don't get pinched that day. Okay, maybe no one would actually pinch me anymore but a girl can still pretend. I used a beautiful green fabric to make some heart shaped yo-yo's. I mounted them to green wool felt. I used a green dyed shell bead for the stem and some 6.0 seed beads to embellish my pin. I shall be wearing this when I meet my girlfriends for lunch on March 17th.
This month begins with a Monday and that is always a challenge for many. I endured the post office today and got some important things sent off to their destinations. It feels good to begin a new month with a list that I can actually check off as having completed.
I shall soon share another project I am working on.
What are you working on that you would like to complete this month?


  1. I'm working on setting up an Etsy sell some things...I've been so intimidated for way too long, and it's time to take the plunge I think!!!!


  2. Gee, these shamrock yoyo's are cute. Yoyo's seem to be pretty versatile. I need to tackle a page sized art work that features tactile texture. The learning curve for buttons may be gentler than beads. 8^)

  3. I'm not selling anything anymore..but it was fun when I did. I sold on ebay for awhile and then gave it up..because of the post office..and the stress of folks that bought and then took forever to pay. I'm too old for that sort of thing.
    I do so love that shamrock!
    The talent that is on etsy and in blogland is just amazing.
    I love that some of the sellers are blogging with me as well because it is so easy for me to keep up with their goodies..and I dooo so love goodies.
