About Me

My Photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

The Inner Leprechaun....

...and yes I think we all have an inner leprechaun in us...a little mischievous, always searching for that pot of gold..... Yes, I'm Irish on my mothers side....my maternal g-mother was full-blooded Irish, she had the red hair and she was fiery. I was a little scared of her growing up. I remember this tall lanky woman always wearing an apron looking down at me. But, I believe she is where I get my artistic abilities from. She was always creating something out of nothing. I remember her rolling colorful pages out of magazines into tiny, long tubes and then gluing them vertically onto empty coffee cans and she used them for flower pots or what-not holders. She loved "bling" , I remember a lot of her creations being sprayed with GOLD spray paint. Wow, I'm more like her than I thought.....bwahahahahaha.....

OK, now back to present day...I made these for my bowling league. I love to make things for the holidays and we always have a covered dish brunch every holiday before we commence to bowling. So, this is what I decided to make. I got kinda tickled while I was putting them together using the peppermint patties... St. Patty and peppermint patties, get it....I kill me!!!! bwahahahahahahahaha
The 'bling' on the hat is the faux dew "dew drops" I made, pretty cute, huh? Have to make more of those..... TFL
