St. Patrick’s Day wouldn’t be complete without some shamrocks (or potatoes for that matter).
- small heart cookie cutter
- green paint
- paper for stamping
Cut about 1/4 off the length of the potato. Then insert the heart cookie cutter as deep as it will go. Use your knife to cut cleanly around the heart shape.
Dip your stamp in some green paint and you are in the shamrock business! Three hearts make a shamrock. Add a stem using a paint brush.

The blog was born out of my desire to teach my children about the Lord though creative activities and crafting. It reflects our daily life–sometimes mundane and routine, sometimes creative and inspirational. I live with my husband and three young children in Colorado where I enjoy camping, gardening, crafting, reading Golden Books, watching Mary Poppins and making pie.
