St Patrick's Day crafts...

I am doing this post to show you a couple of my St Patrick's Day crafts. These are the ones that I was so proud of that they hang right at my front door so they are the first things people see when they come into my house.
This is the Leprechan that I did a couple of years ago. This one only took about 45 minutes to complete. I thought this one was cute and thought that I would try it and now he greets everyone as they come in.
This is the Irish Welcome sign that I made while I was resting after having surgery. I am very proud of this one because it took me about 2 days working on it and the edge was really hard for someone that was not used to doing a project this big. I hope you like it.

Thinking of ideas

I was on the way to the church with my husband and kids for the Easter egg hunt. I was looking at how good the kids were doing and noticed that the baskets that we bought for them from the dollar store was not big enough to hold all of the eggs that they were finding. Then it hit me. Next year I think that I will make their baskets. That way I can make them bigger and make them to one-of-a-kind baskets. I am not sure yet exactly how it will look but I know what it will be similar to. I did a shamrock basket that we keep things like keys, pens, etc in and here is a picture.

Picture this one bigger and Easter colors with a handle on it. What do you think?
