Wrap Up of St. Pat's

So what did we learn this week?  Well, I learned that St. Patrick wasn’t Irish, and that he was kidnapped as a teenager.  Who knew, right?  He brought Christianity to Ireland and used the shamrock to teach the Holy Trinity.  We also learned that blue was originally the color associated with St. Patty’s Day.

What I learned this week?  I learned how much I missed corned beef, and I discovered the artists “Mumford and Sons” (love them, check them out).

Remember, inspiration can come from anywhere.  And just because something you love and are inspired by isn’t in the medium you use, you can change it to fit the medium you use.  Take the green silk pin from Wednesday’s blog post.  I really love it, but I have no idea how to make it!  But what I can do, to fit what I know how to do and fit my shops theme, is make a green or white bib and then make a solid green, solid white or a green mixed with white flower to add to it.

Hope people learned something this week.  Have a happy weekend!!
