st-pats-dat Hi Everyone!

Today wasn’t quite the day I was planning on.  Kyle was sick this morning and didn’t go to school.  I took him to the doctor and he has some viral infection that has given him all these painful sores in his mouth.  And Greg ended up at home all day – not because he was sick but because he had to go in for a conversion at work last night and didn’t get home until 3 am.  So he slept in and then worked from home.  He also decided today was the day he would switch out my computer.  So this afternoon and evening he has been trying to get it all set back up for me with all the software and my email and stuff.  And I realized only a little while ago that I wasn’t getting all my Stampin’ Up! emails – so now I got that fixed and I think I’m all back up and running.  So far this computer is faster that the old one.  I did realize my photo catalog is missing so none of my pictures were in my photoshop organizer when I went to look for them tonight.  I’ll have to fix that tomorrow.    And I’ll work on more tomorrow to make sure I’m not missing anything else.  Right now my old computer is still connected too; so if I need something from it I just switch my screen over to that one.  It’s kind of wierd – two computers running on one monitor.  Right now I have 2 keyboards and 2 mice on my desk so I can work with the one I need.

Anyhow the picture above is one that I took at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference.  I thought this would be the perfect project to share with you today since tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day.  I’m sorry that I don’t know who created him but she was at the Leadership conference in Orlando and was nice enough to let me get a quick picture.  He is made out of punches – tag punch, word window, scallop circle, 1-3/8″ circle, looks like the 1/2″ and 1/4″ circle too.  The belt is either the square punches or they might just be cut.  There is a candy bar on the inside.  A cute treat to share with your kids tomorrow if you have the time!

This reminds me of the year when Tyler was in 2nd grade and at school the sneaky leprechaun’s would come into the classrooms while the kids were out.  This particular year I think happen to also be some other activity going on in the school so all of the kids desks were pushed together on one side of the room.  While the kids were out of the room to lunch or somewhere I snuck in and moved all the desks so that I could stick a Leprechaun treat inside and then pushed them all back in place before the kids got back.  Later in the day when they all moved their desks back to where they should be they were so surprised to find treats inside – they were convinced that little leprechauns snuck in and hid them because only someone small could have gotten to the desks since they were pushed together.  They were so funny!  Anyway – that is always what I think of on St. Patrick’s Day.  Now Tyler is in 10th grade so that was quite some time ago.

I hope you have a great St. Patty’s Day – wear green and find some GOLD at the end of your rainbow!

Speaking of rainbows – here is a card from Leadership – this was one of the demonstrations from the Stamrainbow-heartpin’ Up! employees showing us new product from the catalog – this one uses the Sticky Cuts Sweet and the new fine glitter.

Have a Happy Day!
