Here's the good news friends, exactly one month today marks the beginning of Spring. March is just around the corner and this makes my, completely swollen valentine's heart, warm and fuzzy.
Why do I love March so much you ask? It's my birth month of course. March 13 to be exact. (I expect lots of birthday wishes on this day, so mark it on your calender. In permanent marker so there's no excuses)
Another reason, St. Patrick's Day falls in the month of March. Now for most people, March 17 isn't really that big of a deal, but when you've married into a Hardcore Irish Catholic Family, St. Patrick's Day rivals all the other major holidays. (They don't call them the Fightin' Irish for nothin')
What qualifies you as a "Hardcore Irish Catholic Family"?
- potatoes must be served with every meal
- the grandparents are direct descendants of Ireland
- the majority of your family has pale skin, tons of freckles and red hair
- you must remain community and family oriented
- the street you live on is named Shamrock road (no joke)
- you're kids attend a catholic school
So, if nothing more, St. Patrick's Day is a day to have a (Sham)Rockin good time! So dig out your green garbs, dust off your drinkin' mug and join 3 Jewels In My Crown, as we salute the Irish heritage during the month of March.
To get you started, I want to share this cute pillow box craft that I found online.
The printable pdf can be found here.
Here's the one I made!
I plan on stuffing these pillow boxes with rainbow colored sunflower seeds. These little pillow box treats would be perfect gift to give your loved ones on St. Paddy's Day, don't ya think?
