5 Pins for Pat

I love, love, love Pinterest. It's really exactly what I've needed to get organized with parties and party planning, presents and all the holidays. Since I'm only a few days behind in blogging I thought I'd share my top five St Patty pins I've marked this year.

I love this lunch idea and made something similar for Lilli's lunch tomorrow (pics to come later). I modified the ingredients and some of the look, but I thought it was so clever! I always cut her sandwiches into fun shapes (I have a dinosaur sandwich cutter and a princess one) and she'll ask me specifically for a dinosaur sandwich so I know she'll be excited tomorrow!

I'm really into subway art for my kitchen right now. I printed several for Valentines and then several others for St Pat, and even had Brent make me a custom one. These are all free printables and he has such a great color printer at work that the cost to me is nothing for some constantly changing art!

Of course Lilli has to have a custom skirt! I ordered this from a different shop than my usual haunt, she's been getting pricier and pricier so I'll likely only be using her for special occasions. This skirt was really affordable AND I was able to buy a matching dress for her baby doll!

We made this easy little craft for both her church and school friends. Just a little printable (we used normal paper and it worked fine and is much cheaper than card stock) stapled on a Ziploc baggie filled with Lucky Charms. Kids love that cereal so this has already been a big hit with church friends. I'll have pics of ours when I post on St Patty's day.

I think this craft is so cute and I'm planning for us to do this tomorrow! It would be neat to do year after year and watch her hand grow.
