But what about St. Patrick's Day at this time of year?? Don't we think green when that date starts to role around? Wear green, drink green beer, celebrate the Irish in any way we know how. What is St. Patrick's Day all about anyway?
St. Patrick's Day is on March 17th because it is believed to be the day the saint died. Before his death, he is said to have brought the Christian religion to Ireland. "Saint Patrick's Day has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and luck. Most importantly, to those who celebrate its intended meaning, St. Patrick's Day is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for missionaries worldwide" (www.st-patricks-day.com).
Regardless of the reason you 'think green' let's see what we find to help you along those lines via handmade avenues on Etsy presented by those Unique Women in Business team members. First, I found a adorable dog collar:
|Crazy for Collars offers this piece of Green!|
|Fashion Touch does wonders with green yarn.|
What about for ourselves:
|AudreyGardenLady can twist beads & wire like crazy!|
Or a gift for Mom/Sis/BFF:
|LMCreations can cut fabric to fit!|
Let's think about really going 'Green' with this double duty tote--made from an upcycled tee into a great tote with a SHAMROCK on it!! Talk about Green!
|Rita's Creations serve double duty with Green!|
Now I would like to introduce you to some other UWIB team members that are blogging "Think Green" and give you a chance to see what those witty women think when they hear the term. Check them out, leave a comment and tell them I sent you!!
After you check them out come back here and leave me a comment telling me which one you think hit on the same meaning you have when you Think Green. I will send one of you a cute pair of green shamrock earrings as a gift. (I will use Random.org to draw the winner.)
