St. Patrick's Day and Feelin' Groovy

Hello friends of Crafting with KeepHer and Kaye! Welcome back to our humble blog. At last our schedule has some time for us to again share with you our homey doings by way of this blog. St. Patrick's Day --a day of good luck, good cheer, and unbridled optimism-- seems the perfect time to say hello! In truth we are not zealous St. Patty's Day merrymakers with costumes, parades, green beer, and pinching. But we do consider this holiday a turning point from winter to spring. (It is snowing here today, so that unbridled optimism is essential fuel for our spring time musings!) 

In a low-key nod to the holiday KeepHer and I decorated the kitchen hutch with assorted St. Patrick's Day symbols and costumed Groovy the Sock Monkey in a green top hat and and a fringed scarf. You might remember Groovy from this post in 2014: Groovy the Sock Monkey. Today his good luck is apparent as he sits about piles of coin undoubtedly gathered at the end of the rainbow. Below is a collage of the kitchen hutch all decked out in green. I used the Silhouette Cameo to create the paper decorations including the paper pieced penguin leprechauns and lucky frogs. In our snow blanketed world the green is a wonderful respite and gives hopes that spring will indeed awaken soon.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
