When I worked in a school environment, it seemed like the year revolved around holidays, big or small. If it was President’s Day or St. Patrick’s Day or Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I would be rounding up books and writing lesson plans and looking for activities that would tie into each one. Even after I stopped working as a librarian, I still enjoyed decorating my home for whatever season or holiday was around the corner.
In the past couple years, though, those habits have faded. Sometimes I miss it and sometimes it feels like a relief, but I know it’s just a season in life right now… and I’ll probably get excited about celebrating minor holidays again when we have kids.
Today I’m feeling nostalgic so here’s a quick Throwback Thursday to a couple St. Patrick’s Day crafts I made a couple years ago… and a few ideas for crafts I would love to make some day. St. Patrick’s Day is in one week and I probably won’t get around to doing any of these projects this year… but I’ll wear some green and there’s always next year, right?
Lovely crafts I’d like to make some day:
Adorable Rainbow cupcakes complete with pot o’ gold via The Fickle Pickle
Equally adorable Shamrock cupcakes via Easy Cake Decorating
A Grownup Daisy Chain necklace (or crown) via Martha Stewart
Shamrock quilt block… one is super cute as a mini quilt, and a long row would be a cute table topper, or more would be such a cute springtime baby quilt via Canoe Ridge Creations
Four Leaf Clover paper ornaments via Happy Clippings
3D Shamrock card via Crafty Mornings
And now for some TBT action from 2013:
