I put green food coloring in the dough when I was mixing up the rolls, and I wish I had gotten a better picture, but underneath the browned top it is green bread. I hope it is as apetizing tomorrow as it was tonight. :) Other than that we didn't do much today but wear green and play with green shamrock stickers. The boys thought the stickers were so much fun and I stuck one on my husband as he walked out the door this morning. I don't want anyone but me pinching him. :)
P.S. We found out today that my hubby did pass his test so now he just has to graduate in May and he will be licensed and ready to practice physical therapy. yay! I think it was that Irish luck... :)

I was inspired by Fabric Paper Thread's lovebird mobile so I thought I would make a St. Paddy's Day mobile.
First I found a silhouette of a clover (google) that I liked and traced it right of the screen. I found a little toy with a circular end and traced a few coins on some coin-looking paper. Then I grabbed some double-sided tape and some thread.
Sorry I don't have any pictures from this point until completion because my camera decided not to work.
I taped some thread to one side of each coin and placed the other coin on top to tape them together. Then I taped the thread to the spots I wanted on the clover and put the other one on top!
I found a clipart Irish looking hat, cut 2 out and put on a green band, buckle and taped it to a spot on the clover.
I stuck a pin through the top and put some thread through it. Then I hung it from the light in my kitchen. I really like it!
It would look really cool with some glitter and other embelishments, too.
Seriously, why don't I do more things with paper? It's inexpensive and fun! (and I have loads of scrapbook paper that is just sitting in my basement.)
Here is the pattern I used.
