Ornament Thursday-Get Lucky!


It’s that time again~Ornament Thursday is here.  This month’s project was inspired by some little four leaf clover and plastic disc charms I found in Hong Kong.  Lucky is the theme.  Luck.  Get Lucky.  Lucky Charms.  Good Luck.  Just My Luck.  Bad Luck.  Luck Be A Lady. Wish Me Luck.  …For Good Luck (i.e. a Rabbit’s Foot).  Lucky Duck.  Did I miss one?  Leave a comment.  I’ve always thought of myself as lucky.  I know studies have been done on people who think they’re lucky vs. not.  Who knows?!?  I’m also superstitious.


I took a crafty break today and whipped up these earrings.  Yes, I said a crafty break from crafting.  I decoupaged the top layer of the printed napkin to the back with Mod Podge.  Wahhooooo!  I loved the texture that came through.  Lucky I found that cool napkin in my paper stash!

I recommend renting Darby O’Gill and the Little People to watch while you make your earrings.  Although, I warn you that song they sing will be in your head for the rest of your life. 

To celebrate St. Patty’s I propose we do a Lucky Charms give-away.  Ok?  Good.  Leave a comment by Monday, March 3rd @ Noon EST.  Here’s the charms you’ll win…BE Lucky!
