Happy St. Patrick's Day! Is that the right greeting? I think St. Patrick's Day is cool. I mean most people just think it's a day to wear green and drink beer, but did you know it's a day to celebrate the guy who brought Christianity to Ireland? That's way cool. He was actually British and ended up in Ireland as a slave. He somehow escaped or got sent back to England, and then as an adult he became a Bishop and went BACK to Ireland to be a missionary. The tradition says that he used the three leaf clover to explain the concept of the trinity - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. So, I enjoy dressing in green, wearing clovers, and remembering a guy that went back to a country he had been a slave in, to teach them about his faith.
This is the second time I've worn this dress, but I didn't manage to get a pic last week.
Dress is simplicity 2975 in the Freebird fabric, and the cardigan is Simplicity 2603.
Kara last year, and the necklace was made using the shop's laser engraver! We decoupaged some MDF with Japanese paper then cut out shapes on the laser engraver. Then I put Glossy Accents over the top to make it shiny and seal the paper. If you're interested in making your own, there are more of these pendants for sale in the new Bead Bar at the shop.
