Weeds: Hope Versus Despair

Easter is coming soon and we are thrilled to be a part of the Easter initiative the LDS Church is producing. We encourage you to ponder upon the Savior and all he has done for us. He is our Prince of Peace and if we follow him and have hope we will receive the promise of Eternal Life. Here are some of my thoughts during this special time of year.

St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Hats

This post contains affiliate links.

What kinds of things do you do on St. Patrick’s Day other than wearing green? Here’s a fun Leprechaun Hat craft that might help add a little magic to your day.

Every year in our family that pesky Leprechaun creates a few messes and leaves his footprints wherever he goes like on the toilet seat and the kitchen floor. He even leaves a little green kiss on the kid’s noses. It’s all in good fun and he loves to leave cute gifts, as well. This year I am making Leprechaun hats filled with rainbows, gold, and green goodness. It’s almost like that guy and his friends have left their hats behind to say “Have a fun-filled day”!
