hangover: noun

something (as a surviving custom) that remains from what is past
or
  disagreeable physical effects following heavy consumption of alcohol or the use of drugs

Well, my card might be viewed as totally mad since I am currently making St. Patrick's Day cards in January!( for the Art MoB ) lol For some, this is craziness, but if you submit to magazines then you're currently making cards for publication in AUGUST so making cards for March almost seems behind the times! HA!
 
And I have found out that my cards with a twist seem to fly out the proverbial door, so I am trying to give my St. Paddy cards a wry sense of humor.

Happy New Year WOYWW'ers
 
I wish I could say I was starting out my New Year with a clean organized work space but it's not true. It's as messy and unorganized as it was in 2012, lol But like I mentioned above I am in a St. Patricks' frenzy! I'd like to have 20 cards ready to be put out on Feb. 15th. ( if you can see them, I only have 5 made so far, plus the one on the desk = 6! )Yep, gotta be ready to change out those holiday cards ASAP. So here is my desk in all it's green madness!


If you notice, I don't have much in the way of St. Patricks' Day items, I never sent out Irish cards before so if I hadn't won the Reminisce contest eons ago I wouldn't have any blarney stash!

Lol, that sentiment is fab, made me hoot! It's refreshing to make non festive items isn't it? I'm making a tea cosy cover for a friend today, going to see how many scraps I can use up!
Happy new year, LLJ 31 xxxx

What a hive of St Paddy's Day activity and you need to be done by my birthday too! I used to live in Dubin btw, and I also used to make Irish Coffees in my parents' restaurant, great at getting the cream to float (cheat and use whipped cream and spoon it on - works a treat!) Happy New Year BJ#27

Eliza said...

Wow you have moved on fast what happened to Valentines Day? LOL

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Fun card! I think you are a doing a great job for not having much stash. Does this mean you've already finished your VD things? That's Valentine's Day, you silly!

Good for you getting ahead of the game. I like the saying on your card. The farthest ahead I have even thought about is Valentine's Day (and haven't done anything about it yet. lol Happy WOYWW ~ Laura #79

wwilloww said...

Hey, my stash of St. Patty stuff is pretty meager too... LOL... but I love your card!!! Is that an original sentiment? I think it's great!!! Have fun with your green day cards. Can't wait to see them.

Deb's Pen Pot said...

You're starting the year as you mean to go on...busy, busy, busy! Love the 4 essential food groups - and I've a smidge Irish in my DNA, so I have to agree! Best wishes and Happy New Year + happy WOYWW, Deb # 131

KatzElbows said...

Your desk looks great: tidy enough to work in but not so tidy it's scary! My desk is scary tidy at the moment and it will soon deteriorate into a total slum. Your desk is honest and fun, and I love the St Patrick's day card.

Happy WOYWW,
Rachel #

RosC said...

Hi Sandee,
Cute card, and the sentiment is so cheeky in that Irish way. Love it.
The desk looks good and busy too.
All the best for the New Year.

MaggieC said...

Never mind St Patrick and Valentine's, I am more worried about this month's birthdays, and some DT work to be done urgently. Panic already this year. I love that St Patrick one though. Have a Happy New Year. xx Maggie #45
