DIY Glitter Mug Tutorial

DIY Glitter Mug Tutorial on Katie Crafts; https://www.katiecrafts.com

Glitter may be the “herpes” of the craft world, but I love it just the same! I’ve been glittering everything lately, and thought I would show you guys how to do it as well. You can do ANY shape you like, or even your initial if you prefer. I have several mugs with “K” already on them, so I decided I’d do something to celebrate today, St. Patrick’s Day: a 4 leaf clover! Let’s whip out the stencil we made yesterday and get to work!

St. Paddy's Day Nail Art 2016 by Katie Crafts; https://www.katiecrafts.com

I’ve rocked some pretty cute nail art designs for St. Patrick’s Days past (remember my Classy Clovers and Plaid and Shamrocks looks?), so I obviously had to come up with something adorable for this year too! I took my inspiration from the buckle on a Leprechaun’s hat for this year’s look and am loving my St. Paddy’s Nail Art for 2016! Continue reading St. Paddy’s Nail Art 2016

An Irish Blessing

An Irish Blessing by Katie Crafts; https://www.katiecrafts.com

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, to all the Irish readers out there, including the ones who are only Irish on March 17th! I am going to a nice dinner tonight, so I have my fancy green shirt picked out, my nails are ready to go, and I will likely wear a green bow in my hair as well. Whatever it is you plan on doing to celebrate, I hope you keep this Irish blessing in the back of your mind! It’s a lovely thought not just for today, but for every day. I wish you all happiness!

St. Patrick’s Day Nail Art Design: Plaid & Shamrocks

Tomorrow is Saint Patrick’s Day (and today is my baby cat’s 10th birthday!) I recently saw a really cute design by CutePolish on YouTube (one of my favorite channels!) where she showed a design called “Lucky Green Plaid Nails.” I really liked it for the upcoming holiday, so I made a few changes and came up with my own similar design, inspired by hers!

My Etsy Picks: Gettin’ Lucky

Fun Fact: While a week from today is Saint Patrick’s Day, a week from yesterday is my kitty’s birthday! Lucky turns the big 1-0 on Monday, March 16th! He was born mid-March and is a natural red-head, so he’s obviously Irish. But that is just part of why his name is Lucky! He was actually named something else entirely (Sandy) when I adopted him, and I promptly renamed him something else (Murphy), but that just didn’t seem right. After a month of having him, I picked him up out of my dresser (he liked to sleep in the drawers) and he kept playing with the four-leaf clover necklace I had around my neck. He was obsessed! I called him my Lucky bear and it stuck. He was fated to have the name! Continue reading My Etsy Picks: Gettin’ Lucky
