St. Patrick’s Day is coming (March 17), and this is an early reminder that soon many people will be wearing green! I remember how much fun it was in elementary school to see who remembered the day, and I loved the outrageous combinations my friends and classmates decided to wear. It’s the one holiday where a kid can don three clashing shades of green without a problem. I had an especially favorite pair of lime green pants that I wore several years in a row until they mysteriously disappeared (My mother had just gone through my clothes. Hmm, was that just a coincidence?).
Now that I’m older, I don’t wear quite as much green on St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve even forgotten to wear it a couple of times (Shhh! Don’t tell my Irish friends). When I do remember, I like to wear a touch of green to join in the fun of the holiday. This year I made some silver and green earrings that I’m planning to wear, and hopefully I’ll be able to show you some pictures. They were fun and quick to make.
At Artbeads.com, we’re starting the celebration a bit early. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to check out our Facebook page for a special surprise themed around the Luck of the Irish!
