Happy St. Pats Day

Yes it is the wearing of the Green today and of course a dinner party with Corned beef, cabbage and potato's. Not that the Irish know what corned beef is, but who cares. We decided that's the "traditional" Irish meal, so be it.
I've been busy trying to wrap up all the swaps and challenges. haven't taken all the pictures yet but I do have some stuff to share.
WE had another  "Sample Tag" swap over at Jeannies group. You know those little sample tags of Formica you get at Home Depot or if your me, from the actual manufacturer . Yup, called and told them I had this project and needed some samples. they sent me 2000. It seems they want to keep them out of the landfill.
Okay, so I haven't figured out what to do with 2000 yet but these are the pendants I made .....
They really

are much prettier in person..No really LOL I used perfect pearls to give them some shimmer and Austrian crystals that really don't show up in the photos.
Another swap we had was a  mini journal. The theme was "Collections". Those of you who know me are hysterical right now. I have more collections then anyone I know. You name it, chances are I collect it, or I have collected it in the past. It was rough to narrow it down to one thing . So I didn't LOL
I notice that some people were able to make a rather small journal (few pages) but that didn't work with me.

I wrote on tags and included pictures of my collections of Angels, Fairies and Butterflies.
Then I got this great mini book from Raeven

That's the front and back cover and one of the pocket pages..she does such beautiful work doesn't she.
We also had a St. Patricks Day ATC swap. Here are the 3 I got (I already posted the 3 I made)
I got my eye shot this week. Doc said I am doing very well. He gave me the little bottle from the shot so I can make something.OMG!! Even my doctors are turning into enablers. This shot was rough, the pressure was great and I had some bleeding which hasn't happened. Funny how each shot is so different.
There is still no word about my Orthovisc..I wish there was a way to express my feelings to Obama for that fabulous Obama Care. I sure wish he had to depend on the same system he feels works for the American public. What I wish more is that I could send this pain to him. So between the knee and the eye I can't tell you how wonderful it makes me feel to get a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) from one of the gals I don't even know over at TG's group. It came at just the right time to add some sunshine to my life. So thank you Judy for this beautiful card.

If Judy can find the time to send some cheer to a stranger. So can you...Do something nice for someone today. Send a "Thinking of You " card to a friend. Drop off some cookies at a senior center, go write a letter for someone at your local Vets hospital....or do what I do. I have this angel glitter..actual little angels in gold, about a half inch .I stick them in envelopes when paying bills, or lay them on top of tip money or just leave a few on a shelf in a store..Somewhere along the line those angels will make someone smile.
You're smiling right now :-) Have a great day
