An Irish Blessing

Mr. Leprechaun is finished and now listed on Ebay

He is my very first full bodied sculpture and I am thrilled with how he turned out. Sure hope you all love him too.

I love birthdays!! The more you have, the longer you live!!

Well yesterday (Saturday) was my 40 ish birthday and it was awesome. I did some shopping, of coarse it included art supplies, much more fun than buying clothes well at least to me it is, lol. Of coarse I couldn't come home until I had some new yarn too, you can't ever have enough yarn, giggle, giggle, snort... I went to three craft stores and I was in my glory!!! And very achey and breaky today though, the "ish" part of my birthday definetly shows more each year but it really is just a number. I bought some polymer clay, a couple of cones, a new crochet pattern book (yes, I already have probably a couple hundred books, but whats one more that I don't use but have to have, hehehehehehe), took a couple of those free patterns of coarse too. Did you know they have a free crochet pattern out there for snuggies, oh yeah had to have that one. Bought a couple of Artsy things for the grand kids to and some other misc. art supplies. Had some birthday cake, spent some time with my grand kids, hubby and son. What a fantastic day, now back to the real world, laundry, dishes, etc. But for one day I did nothing but what I wanted to do, no housework, what a life, I could get use to that very easily, lol.

Well back to creating those Easter Bunnies.

Sure hope you had a great weekend too!!



  1. Oh Brenda your Leprechaun is really magical! He is so cool! :) I'm glad you had a fantastic B-day! It's nice to have days like those.

  2. I am so tickled that you got to do nothing for your birthday! How fun to go shopping and not feel the need to hurry up to get home to start dinner. I would rather go to a sewing/craft store too than to go buy clothing. But, you do need to take more than one day a year for you, you do deserve it! Your Leprechaun is fantastic! He turned out awesome! Hope that your week is as wonderful as your weekend was!


  3. Your Leprechaun turned out great, don't worry about the"ish" part of your Birthday, just think 30ish from now on...and enjoy all those goodies you came home with.

    Hugs to you...Lisa
