Shamrock Wreath

Though I do have extensive Danish family lines I also have a lot of proud Irish blood in me thanks to my Irish grandmother. I’d LOVE to go to Ireland some day and explore my heritage (I’ve been watching lots of “Do you know you are are?” Love that show!) but in the mean time I’m celebrating St. Patrick’s day with a little shamrock style. 
You will need: shades of green paper, scissors, glue gun, embroidery hoop
Step 1: Draw simple shamrock shapes in a variety of sizes
Step 2: Cut them out
Step 3: Bend the leaves of the shamrocks
Step 4: Dab some glue onto the center of the shamrock and continue the process going around the hoop. Voila!

What are you doing for St. Patrick’s Day?

Valentine’s Heart Attack Take 3

Clearly, I can’t get enough of the sendable heart attacks. I sent a few heart attacks to people around town, but I needed to send one to my sister, Caitlin, so I tried a different version this year. Ideally there’d be enough hearts to swim in them. You know like Duck Tales how they swim in money?
Materials: box, scissors, hearts and lots of them. I even made some pop-up hearts for the sides.

These are great for loved ones living far away or even in town. Who doesn’t love getting snail mail?

Check out last year’s sendable heart attack box here and a heart attack for the door here.

Heart Attack!

You have been heart attacked! 
Have you ever done this to someone? I highly recommend it. All you need is an innocent victim, lots of paper hearts, tape, and a quiet time when they aren’t looking. Muhahaha. 
PS-this is the one I did last year

Heart Attack

Ever received a heart attack? The paper, less life-threatening type? Well, consider yourself attacked. Happy Valentine’s day. PS–“kærlighed” means “love” in Danish. PPS–wish me luck, this is my last day with long hair. Hip hip.
