Top of the morning to you! It’s crafty Fridays my favorite day of the week. I took Wednesday off from blogging because…. well because I felt like it and I’ve been busy as heck. My lamps are going up in a local nail salon, I’ve been working with them to find the correct style. It’s been fun but also a little stressful.
It’s so exciting to see my lamps in an establishment, feels like a dream
My lamps were also on display at the Sparkling Ice Booth at First Friday’s in Oakland Last week. I’ve been one busy girl.
This is the first time I’ve seen my lamps illuminating the night. I’m one happy girl
St Patrick’s Day is next Friday and I always end up getting pinched because I never have green on. I don’t own much green, it’s not my go to color. The pinches come and I get mega annoyed. I hate being pinched, my Mother used to pinch me as a disciplinary action. It wasn’t hard and really didn’t hurt, it was her way of reminding me to wake up in church, stop talking back, or to stop my rebellious behavior. Over time she stopped pinching but the enteral pinching scars are still there.
Perfect reason to make this craft, it’s a cute little four leaf clover headband that took me less than 10 minutes to make. Now I never have to worry about getting pinched on St Paddy’s day ever again.
