~Purple Cows BLOG HOP right here!~

Good morning crafty peeps!
It is officially the Purple Cows St Patty's Day Blog Hop
Are you ready for some hopping?
It begins here
http://sadiepurplecow.blogspot.com/
GREAT PRIZES along the way!!

I have been on a handmade for kids craft kick lately
and if you have been here, you know I have been making bookmarks.
I made them again, now before you sigh and move on...just wait :)
These bookmarks are FABRICRemember that you don't have to limit yourself to paper only,
the Purple Cows Laminator works on fabric just as well as paper!
Also I keep a separate set of Click Blades to cut fabric.
I thought these would be EASY, and a great gift for kids, that is not all sugary
and candy (not that I mind some sugar too!) for St Patty's Day,
but when I went through my paper stash I did not have any shamrock paper!
I got to thinking, I have oodles of fabric scraps, why not use that!

Oh and I told you yesterday I would talk more about our newest venture
"CHICKENS!"
Here they are, aren't they cute?! :)
Even Daffodil thinks so, she is as fascinated as our boys LOL
We ended up with 12 and are going to begin the coop building next weekend
I am so stoked, this is going to be a great adventure with the boys!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my crafty fun.
Here is your next BLOG STOP!
The beautiful JING JING

Hope you find some great inspiration, and win a prize!
~Have a great Monday~

Love the bookmarks, what a fun idea for the new readers. The chicks are so cute and I am happy for you (as long as I never have to gather the eggs. )

Have fun with your babies.

Great Tags.. You are so going to love raising chickens.. They are so adorable at this age.. Did you hatch them? It looks like you have some reds? but the blacks could be black coppers? Oh I'd love to know more.. Thank you for sharing your pictures.
