When Bene was just new born, I accidentally got my children to do St Patrick’s Day crafts a whole month early, thanks to baby brain and befuddlement. They’ve never let me forget it. I think they thought history was repeating itself today when I suggested a similar activity, but on this occasion it was just me being organised and coming up with a craft that was almost topical but slightly ahead for once. I’m a habitual blogger for next year, when it comes to crafts and I really should do better. I had such a pleasant time with my daffodils the other day (first garden one bloomed today… sob).
I’ve blogged a nice easy sweetie jar/candle holder over on SimpleCrafts (don’t faint) but I’m saving this pretty for here – because I just love it.
I spent ages on all those twiddly bits and just for once it came out exactly as it was in my head. I shall have to mount it on something I think and put it somewhere pretty. We deserve some luck I think.
Josie and Maddy sat with me for ages. Josie followed instructions to make a Fimo Leprechaun and I think it is the best thing she has ever made.
and Maddy made a lovely shamrock charm which has a touch of the Celtic to it I think.
