Top Of The Mornin' To You

Top of the Morinin' to you! I know my last name does not scream Irish but I am proud of my ancestry from the Emerald Isle. Have you ever met an Irishmen who is not proud?  I thought I would share a small vignette I gathered to celebrate the up coming St. Paddy's Day Holiday. My Great Great Grandfather Is Patrick Condon of Cahir, Ireland. I have had the honor of traveling to the town. While I visited I met the family member still running PC Condon's Pub in Cahir. She is a delightful lady who welcomed me took me on a tour of the town. Taught me about where she lives, exchanging family history.I now have contact with more family. I am looking forward to meeting one day soon.
The pot is a thrift store find, +Michaels Stores is where I purchased the shamrocks stem, glitter decor shapes and Christmas clearance votive candle. It cost me less than $7.00. I can  also use all the elements again in other decor too.
The Forget Me Not print I often use was made by a friend from High School. Isn't is adorable. My Grandfather gave my Grandmother a jewelry set with Forget Me Nots. It reminds me of the gift, which my Mom sweetly gave me to care for this generation. 
Most items in my home have a sentimental meaning. The Irish Belleck Vase came from my girlfriend from High School. It was her parents and she gave it to me to remember them. I feel honored to treasure this in my home.

Sparkling with pride is varied green shamrocks and gold coins clad in glitter.

This last vignette is mixed to honor the upcoming celebration of Easter and St Patrick's Day. This season of celebration is about new life. After this hard winter weather we could use the hope of Spring and new life.
What are you looking forward to this Spring?

One Day is Here Now

 This is a Sponsored Post which I have been compensated for by One App to demonstrate how to use the free app. My opinions are my own and are no way influenced by my compensation.
  Have you ever found yourself saying One Day I will video tape the kids to freeze this moment in time. You no longer have to wait one day to catch a cute moment with your children, family and loved ones. Now you can load this free app on your I Phone or Android cellphones to capture moments today.
  I found this app loaded in seconds. Using the prompts made it fun to make this silly memory of our furry little girl. We do not have young children but we do have a delightful Golden Retriever, Cricket. My Prince Charming is Crickets voice but, she told him what to say. I hope you enjoy Crickets One Day
App video. Now Featuring Cricket in her One Day instant movie maker Debut.
 Thank goodness she works for treats and unconditional love. Love is certainly what Valentine's Day is all about.

You can also get the app for the Iphone too at your Apple Itunes Store for free too. 
  My husband I did one run through so he could see the concept. Tried one take in the kitchen but, he was across the room with our star. In order to pick up the sound you should stand no more than approx. 5 feet from who you are interviewing. This would be great to do with all generations in your family. I could imagine having my Grandma telling me stories of how she met my Grandpa. I know the story from her but I do not have a video. If I had this then it would be one of my most prized moments taped for generations to share.

Hearts A Flutter Valentine Decor

Love is in the air which means my heart is all a flutter. While shopping for craft room storage at a  half price sale in January #AHeapOfChangeChallenge. I wandered by the valentine displays as I was piling up the first cart with items I deemed necessary to an organized craft space. (Squirrel) I wanted to make a decoration with materials slightly out of the box. As Prince Charming headed for the second cart I chose a bunch of silk roses in ivory and pink, 2 cardboard hearts and valentine card stock. I already had bakers twine in red, pink and white at home. After the cashier rang up our two carts of sale items we filled the car and headed home.
I will be posting about the storage and organized craft room reveal soon.

Can you imagine how these rose petals are going to look with Mod Podge adhering them to the card board hearts?
Silk Roses, Pink, Ivory, Cutting Petals, He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not
I cut each rose petal off the roses. I was actually think he love me, he love me not. I know corny and of course it was late in the evening. LOL

Print & Cut Valentine's Day Banner

Welcome to the second Silhouette Challenge Facebook Group of 2015. Print & Cut with a choice to raise the bar and use hearts. Easy peasey right!
 The plan was to get this accomplished on Monday. I finished it Wednesday night with a few bumps in the road due to equipment failure. Yes failures happen to bloggers all the time. We are human and have the same frustrations as other people when their machines do not work.

 Here is what I chose to print from the items I have already purchased at the Silhouette store. This was my first step.
In this picture I am showing you how to not cut the flowers because that is my pattern. Not my cut selection because I will be cutting out letters.
