Clover Pillow Box

My mom had a pattern for pillow boxes when I was younger and we always planned to make them but never did. So after 15 years, I finally decided to design one of my own as a little treat box for St. Patrick's Day. My little niece was thrilled to receive her clover pillow box. Not only was the treat inside great, but the box was fun too. She loved opening and closing it. I'll admit, I opened and closed it a few times too before giving it to her. It's just so fun to see it puff up and take shape.

I was asked by a friend of mine to make a baby announcement for one of her friends that just had twins. The babies were born very early and one didn't make it. My friend gave me this poem and asked that I put it on the announcement. Her sister had used the same poem on one of her birth announcements for twins. As I was designing this I found tears running down my face often. I just kept thinking of how hard this must be for all the families out there that have to go through hard trials like this in their lives. I'm posting this because I thought the poem used was a simple and effective way to share something that is so joyful and yet devastating at the same time. Maybe others will find this poem helpful in sharing their tragedy and blessing with others.

Please note that the babies' photos have been removed and all the information has been changed.

Leprechaun Treasure Hunt

I have a niece that loves Dora the Explorer. She is always asking her mom if they can go on an "adventure" after she watches the show. I had her in mind the entire time I designed this. Wouldn't it be fun as a child to go on a treasure hunt following clues from a leprechaun to his hidden treasure on St. Patrick's Day? Although you'll never catch the leprechaun, his treasure will be at the end. Everyone knows gold chocolate is way better than a leprechaun anyway.

This download comes with 10 clues for places around your house. You simply cut them out and hide them with your own "treasure" at the end. Your kids will love this. Now I just need to finish school so I can have some little treasure hunters of my own. :)
