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!

Lars in 2013 by color

In my mind, 2013 went like this: moved to America, made some stuff, met new people. Done. When I went back through the archives of the blog, I was shocked at how much “stuff” I had done. And how many great people I met, and the places I got to go. Tip: if you have a bad memory, keep a blog! Or scrapbook! Or take pictures. It’s so helpful for this aging noggin. I took a tip from the fine ladies at Sister Mag and decided to do a recap of the year according to color. Why? Same reason we now categorize our bookshelves in the same why-no order, just color.
