Feeling Lucky!

Hello long lost friends!

I am making this way too much of a bad habit by not blogging daily but I did not think it would be this difficult to blog while I am away at school.  Although I am not personally blogging everyday I still look at everyones pages and see what beautiful creations they are coming up with :) They never cease to amaze me & it makes me wish I had more time for crafting and less time I have to spend studying.  I've been studying for the past week for a big Anatomy & Physiology test tomorrow on the endocrine & digestive system.  I have been studying all day today and decided to take a break because I'm feeling pretty lucky :)  Lucky .. because I hope I do great on my exam  (300+ questions) & I made a St Patricks Day wreath this week for my mom's boss.  It's her birthday tomorrow and shes 100% Irish.

I had bookmarked the Tatertots and Jello Burlap Wreath after they first posted it because I had hopes of one day creating a look alike.  Not too long after I found a reason to re-create! You can find that wreath on Tatertots and Jello's blog . 

SIDE NOTE: I'm not exactly sure if thats what I am is supposed to do when I try to recreate someones craft.  I'd like to give credit where it is due.. so if I am doing this incorrectly and someone spots it.. pleaase let me know :)

But anyways..  Here is what my final product came out to look like. 

I used scrapbook brads, burlap, 2 different St Patrick's Day fabric, and for my embellishment it was a hanging shamrock with three pieces.  My initial idea was to hang it in the center but I decided to take a chance and break it apart which I am so glad I did.. I like it much better this way. 

I am excited to go home this weekend and make a new spring wreath.  The valentine's day one is goiing to have to come down since Monday is the end of the love!  I cannot wait to show you all what I made for my valentine, Wendy, over at Craft Goodies! She is such a sweetheart and has been nothing but accomdating to me since I ran into a lil problem in my valentine exchange.  Unfortunately someone did not want to be my valentine, but Wendy did!! I hope her package arrives on time & she enjoys some of my amateur crafts.  I was kind of limited in supplies since I am away at school but I tried my best! I'll let you all be the judge later next week. 

Hopefully next week I will write with good news.. that I did well on my test! Happy Valentine's Day to all of you special crafters! I hope your day is filled with love & many blessings.
