Happy Holy Shamrock Day


This is my funny Irish self-portrait. I thrifted an assortment of these great old buttons, and even a matching mug with same image and words. I'm super happy about that because my last Irish Day Celebration mug was recently broken.

Bring on the Guinness..... no, wait, already did that YESTERDAY.

Happy Irish Day to all artists and crafts people!!!! Here's the traditional Irish blessing from me to you:

May the crafts rise up to meet you, and may your road be sewn with sequins and orderly stitches. May the sun shine in your studio windows (but not blindingly- what sort of blessing would THAT be??!) and your art supplies be plentiful. May you see the wisdom of your ways, and keep making art depicting it!! Shamrock-out.

I had this whole plan to take friends on an out of town excursion to see Pirate Celtic rock band (band name with held to protect the innocent), but checked out their myspace at the last minute to discover that I couldn't STAND the singing. Too much pirate and not enough actual good Celtic musicality. ARG! So we ended up drinking our monday night Guinesses over Irish Bingo here iin town! ha ha ha ha!!!!! The prizes were so funny, the hosts were great and we had a lovely night.
