Hello March!

Green is everywhere!
The grass is looking greener and the shamrocks & St. Patrick's day decor is out!
Winter is ending and spring is beginning....yay!
I love hear more birds chirping, flowers are coming out from the earth and things seem much brighter.

I made another collage sheet set...
They are perfect to create your irish home decor, use to create tags, journaling, ornaments for an st. patricks tree, art for your planner and more ....they are just plain fun!

One sheet is the artwork I painted, one sheet are all the saying on shamrock background, and one sheet are 3 large tags.
Print these on cardstock or presentation paper.

I drew and painted the art...all are watercolored. There are shamrocks, birds, a cat, a bunny, sweet girl, rainbows, butterflies, heart, clovers and more. The second sheet are my sayings with a background of watercolored shamrocks. Some of the 13 sayings are: happy st. patrick's day, lucky me I have you, party o' animal, queen of the green, let the shenanigans begin, shake your shamrocks, sassie lassie, blarney, leprecutie, and more! The 3rd sheet are 3 large tags painted green, pink and lt purple.

She is a sassie lassie!
With these collage sheets.....I made tags: Just cut out images on collage sheet. Hot glue in place. For extra height for images ...cut tiny scraps of card board and glue onto to the back of images... and then glue onto tags. Add ribbons, scraps of party streamers (sew one long end using a long stitch on sewing machine, then pull thread to gather), trims, tulle, ribbons, fake flowers and more.
I glittered mine with iridescent glitter.
Girls just want to have fun! Embroider this sweet girl in a garden of pretty flowers, with bees and butterflies. This is my brand new pattern! 
Add some scraps of fabric to the side of the design for a whimsical pillow with rick rack all the way around.

It's super fun, quick and easy to do!

Last month I made a valentine mug I had to make a st. Patrick's day one too!
These are so easy.
I drew a quick diagram....above. 
Use a 1/4" seam allowance.  Sew the featured fabric next to 3 strips of shamrock fabric.
Press well. Sew 1" strips all the way around. It is a good idea for the fabric border strips to be the same as the backing fabric.  It makes the strips resemble quilt binding.  Cut excess fabric and press. Layer batting and backing fabric (slightly larger than top) then lay top over backing (right sides together).  Pin in place. Sew 1/4"  around mug rug leaving a 3" opening. Turn inside out. Sew opening closed. Quilt heart or squiggles on featured fabric and also quilt down strips and around the borders.
My daughter Selina and I are collaborating on a monthly surprise pack!
Each surprise pack will feature special projects and products for that month. 

The first pack is April,but it will be available in our etsy shops:
... on March 10th. The first surprise pack will come with 2 of the larger hexie ornaments, the bunny and chick design with instructions and patterns, a bunny needle minder that is magnetic (fits on your embroidery hoop nicely) ...**plus other surprises!!  
The next surprise pack will be available the April 10- 15th and feature "May".  
Stay tuned for more details!
Coloring the hexies are easy...just blob on watercolor and let dry.
I did some paintings recently.
I enjoy just playing around.
It really relaxes me and I feel tranquil afterwards.

These and a few more originals are now in my etsy shop.

I love cats the most.
This little girl is playing with butterflies.
Soon I will have some bunny dolls....

and Easter ornaments too, they will be in my etsy shop.
Have a wonderful it up!!!
