Simple Leprechaun Dress Up


Your little leprechauns will love making and wearing this costume we designed for our local parenting magazine Raising Arizona Kids.

Raising Arizona Kids Magazine March 2012

Made from construction paper and string, you’ll have a real, live leprechaun on your hands in a matter of minutes, but watch out, I hear they’re tricky folks.


A special thank you goes out to Aimee’s neighbor Jenn who rescued us during this photo shoot. I’d accidentally left home my favorite portrait lens, and Jenn (the fabulous photographer behind this shoot) rushed right over and let us borrow hers to finish out the shoot. What a Supermom! Thanks Jenn.

    You combine your prime rib plus onions, celery and pickles to make a
    beef spread that’s out of the world. Essential oils:
    a few drops of essential oil will add a pleasant scent and also help to preserve the hand cream.

    individual’s tastes.
