  • Congrats on 400K hits! We’re not much for the pub days now that the kids are here, but we’ve started a tradition of getting up and having green eggs and ham…looks terrible but the kids love it! lol 🙂 That and we’ll wear green for the day.

    Have a great day and thanks for your generosity and for the chance to play along in the fun! 🙂

  • Leslie

    Hey Emily! No plans for St. Patty’s Day yet, but perhaps I’ll drink a green beer. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win and congrats on 400k!!

  • Melissa

    Don’t really do much for St. Patty’s day. . .but since we’ve been to Ireland. . .gotta do something, right?? I bought an adorable hat at Target in the dollar spot and I’ll have my boys wear it and take their pictures. Maybe this year I’ll try serving green food for supper. Better start thinking now what that could be! Thanks for the chance to win! And enjoy seeing the babies. I have twin nieces that I’ll get to see for the second time this summer and I can’t wait!

  • Dorothy

    WOW – what great blog candy – I want it all. I am always running out of flowers because I use them all the time. I love your site and all the great cards yo make. Since I am Irish and my husband is English, we usually don’t do too much for St. Patricks Day but I intend on going to the local pub this St. Patrick’s Day for some corned beef and cabbage!!! My family hates it so I NEVER make it at home and have been longing for it for a while. They love Irish soda bread so I might make some from a very old family recipe. By the way, I already have my cardboard shamrocks in the windows and a welcome sign on the door with shamrocks and other decorations around the living room. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Stephanie

    Would love to win this blog candy! Wow 400,000 hits! That’s a lot! Congrats! I’m sure I’ve managed to put 1/4 of those on myself. I so love your work. Really inspires me! I will probably be taking my friend out to dinner and a movie on St. Patty’s Day! It’s her birthday and another excuse to have a Girls Night Out! Just LOVE those! Thanks for the blog candy giveaway, crossing my fingers hoping I win!

  • Corina P

    I am going to organize a “bring something green to eat day” at work. It’s alot of fun to see what people bring.

  • Ann I

    No plans yet for me on St. Paddy’s Day. Spring Break will have begun so hopefully DH and I will be able to take another vacation getaway for a few days. Otherwise, I guess we’ll just hang out and relax at home.

  • Hi Emily! No big plans for St Pattys Day…probably just hangin out at home!

  • Have fun in Baltimore – I live less than a half hour from there!
    For St. Patty’s Day, we’ll be going out to dinner with my mom, since it’s also her brithday. Have a good one.

  • Kelsey

    I am going to wear green, and then hope to get to the pub to drink some green beer and have dinner!!!


  • Lorrie

    We are wearing green and making green eggs for breakfast (that all started from the Green Eggs and Ham book .. )! Maybe I should read through the other responses for more ideas : ).


    I will be driving my bezzie mate around THE BEST IRISH PUBS in our area clarifying to her that it’s always helpful if you’re Irish to have a true English friend who’s happy to drive whilst you celebrate. She has a ball & personal chaffeur for the day…moi.
    Have a great weekend cuddling & smelling babies…mmmmm

  • I usually just make the family green pancakes for breakfast. Hope you have a good weekend w/ your hubby and seeing the babies again 🙂

  • 400K Wow, wow, wow congrats on your milestone. I usuallly make corn beef and cabbage dinner but other then that it is pretty low key for us.

    Thanks for a chance to win all those yummy goodies!

  • Sharon in NE

    Oh dear, I don’t have any plans yet. It’s not easy putting a little Irish on this all Danish girl. Maybe I’ll watch “P.S. I Love You” as I understand its got some Irish hoties in it. (Although I AM married to an Irish hottie…but hey, a little movie is good too.)

  • Amanda

    I Love your card and reading your blog. I have no plans for St. Patrick’s Day, though if I remember that it’s St. Patrick’s Day I will wear something green. I’ve never really celebrated it. I am looking forward to Easter though.

  • Elicia K

    I will be sleeping in on St. Patrick’s Day because it is SPRING BREAK!!! NO SCHOOL/WORK!!!! 🙂

  • Jen Stewart

    My husband’s side of the family is very Irish and loves to have our traditional Corn beef cabbage at my in law’s house – they love to make a big deal out of it – I just see it as an excuse to make some more cards 🙂

    Congrats on the 400 K ! WOW!

  • Toni

    For St. Patrick’s Day, I will likely make Shamrock Cookies (four-leaved clover shaped cookies made with green cookies dough and green sugar sprinkles). Then we will head over to my mother-in-law’s home for Corned Beef and Cabbage. After dinner, if we are lucky and have a sitter, we will go out for a drink with my husband’s close friend, whose favorite holiday is St. Patrick’s Day.

  • Well My Saint Paddys day will be as such:

    I will tell my kids once again the story of how my Irish Grandfather came to the United States to work on the Erie Canal. Then how he married an Native American woman and that is how I have my Irish/Indian side of my lineage. Then at the school I work at I will help a fellow co-worker make our Corned Beef and cabbage lunch. I will also help make Irish Soda bread, and dress my kids in the traditional green and orange.

    My youngest child thinks it is great that he is named after a holiday. LOL He is named Patrick and we call him Paddy for short.

    If, and I mean IF, I can get a babysitter for the evening I will invite my dad to go with us to a local pub and celebrate IRISH STYLE!!!!!

  • Heather Leech

    I don’t have alot of plans for St. Patties day, although since I work at an elementary school, I’ll have to dig out some green clothes to wear for sure! Congrats on the popularity of your blog. I’ve been subscribed through Google reader for a long time…love your blog!!
    Thanks for a chance at a super prize!!

  • Kristin O

    I don’t have any plans at this point, but am thinking of making an all-green dinner for the kids (8, 4 and 18 mo). I think they would get a kick out of it! I have green eyes (and red hair, go redheads!) so I don’t have to worry about the pinching! Awesome blog candy, I hope I win!! Thanks Emily!

  • I dont have any St. Patties day but my bday is March 31 and we leave for Colorado on the 30 so March/April will be pretty exciting! Congrats on 400K and i hope i win!


  • nellie

    I guess I will wear green that day. I hope to do alot of stamping that day as well.

  • Dorothy Freber

    Well not only will I be wearin’ the green, but my hubby and I will also be celebrating our 10 year anniversary! WOW! The time really goes fast. We are also planning to go out for an Irish type dinner, although we have spent a few going to the drive thru at Mickey D’s since that was our post wedding dinner on our way to the airport for our honeymoon. So romantic! Happy St. Patty’s day! Dorothy Freber

  • St. Patrick’s Day is the day after my birthday so I might still be celebrating with friends, but for sure, I’ll be watching my Leahy and Natalie MacMaster DVDs, listening to Celtic music and looking at my vacation photos from Cape Breton and Newfoundland.

  • St. Patrick’s Day PLANS? There’s really no such thing at our house. It’s just another day, every year. This year though we will be driving back from Westpoint, NY after my son’s States Gymnastics meet. It’s a long drive at 6+ hours, but it’s such a beautiful drive we really enjoy it. Enjoy your day as well! Thanks! Jackie

  • Alesha

    Since it is a school day I will be wearing lots of “Corny Green” to start the kids on my bus off to a good day. Congrat’s on 400k.


  • Robin

    I’ll be spending the day at a quilt show. Should be a fun day.

  • Marisa

    I have a very good friend who is Irish so I always call her to wish her a Happy St. Patty’s Day 🙂 I hope to be able to make her a card this year as well – after all, green is my favorite colour 🙂 Will also wear green. She actually had a wonderful St. Patty Day party a few years back — all the food was green in some way and we all had to wear green to the party and then have our picture taken with this flaming orange wig with a tartan cap on it!! No shortage of laughter, to say the least. Congrats on the hits and thanks for the opportunity to win such wonderful blog candy 🙂

  • stephanie

    I make my daughter a card for her lunch and make sure that i put anything green i can find in her lunch! i wear green to work and i make sure i pinch anyone who isn’t wearing green!
    At work, we have bring a green veggie day on St. Patrick’s day. we add food coloring to the dip too!!! green kool aid and all!

    congrats on the 400k!

  • Heather

    Cool candy! My St. Paddy’s Day plans this year is to have as green of a day as possible — in color that is. My 4 year old really got into being RED on Valentine’s day, and I thought we would do the same for St. Paddy’s day. I am guessing a lot of green food coloring will be used! I know we will start with green pancakes. Colored pancakes are a favorite at our hose!

  • Carolynn

    I’ll wear green and maybe plan a little ‘green’ party for my students. Do a few St. Paddy crafts and just have a fun day :).

  • No plans as of yet – I know we will all be wearing green, and maybe I will make green pancakes for breakfast. Thanks for the awesome blog candy! Congrats on all your hits – well deserved!!!

  • I know I’m a tad bit late, but I just wanted to thank you for your tutorials and what I’ll be doing for St. Patty’s is not only wearing green this year (never did, funny…) andddddd gonna make my son some four leaf clover lollipop goodies…I know the kids lurve the goodies I make them from him (my son) HAH! 🙂

  • Kristy

    Hopefully my plans will include some stamping!

  • Sara S

    We don’t usually have any special plans for St. Patty’s Day. I’ll wear my irish green to work, but other than that, we’ll probably just head home after work. How boring!!

    Although, they do make green beer here …

  • Karen Raymond

    I’ll wear green all day, as I always do. Then after work, my dh and I will go downtown to one of the great restaraunts in town and get corned beef and cabbage and have a green beer or two! Downtown is fun and St. Pat’s day brings lots of bar crawlers out and its amusing to watch them. Not much else.
    Great blog and nice prize!

  • Christine

    DH is proud of his Irish roots, so I’m sure I’ll be following him around the Irish bars :o)
