Make It Monday | St. Patty’s Crafts and a little secret…

Happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? With the terrible news of the events in Japan and the rising death toll, I found myself just quietly (yes, me…quiet…) thinking and reflecting on the life we have and how in a very instant, everything can change or disappear. I am so thankful for the moments we are gifted on a daily basis. And church this weekend…holy bejeebus, I’ll have to write a recap on that tomorrow maybe, it is still rocking my face right off…Jonathan truly IS being changed right before our eyes and it’s good, ya’ll…so good.

I thought since St. Patrick’s Day is this week, I’d compile some of my favorite DIY St. Patty’s craft ideas from around the web. (Side Note: Whenever we do have kids one day, whether biological or adopted, they will probably HATE me for all the crafts I’ll make them do…) So here we go, St. Patty’s crafts:

{LOVE this Typography Craft from Tatertots and Jello}

{Super Cute Shamrock Luminaries from Mel Designs}

{Super Creative Rice Crispy Treat Gold Bars from Twig & Thistle}

{How precious are these?! Rainbow Pot o’ Gold from Make & Takes}

Okay, here’s my secret…well even though we have tried unsuccessfully to have a baby for the past 3+ years, I have been collecting books for my future children. It might seem silly since we are no closer to having kids as we were 3 years ago, but I just can’t help it. I LOVE children’s books, especially when the illustrations are just so beautiful and breathtaking. Here are a couple pictures of some books we have collected so far (some are mine from when I was a child, others are gems we’ve picked up at thrift stores):

and I’m already completed obsessed with these Birds in Fables and Tales prints and Fairytale Series Prints from Emma SanCartier’s Etsy shop seen on Papernstitch’s blog. Aren’t these brilliant!?

There’s a never-ending struggle in my heart to be content with the blessings God has already given Jay and I and trying to trust His timing and plan versus the burning desire deep in my heart, soul and everything inside of me, for our family of 2 to grow to like 6 and for us to have our own children to read these books to. One day…until then, I’ll continue my collection:)
