I’m Not Lucky, I’m Blessed {Printable}

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! We didn't do much "green" decorating at all this year, but I'm hoping to still bust out a few fun St. Patrick's Day activities this weekend to celebrate with Little Man.  (I'll share a few of my ideas at the end of this post.)

This week, I came up with a quick printable to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year.

Honestly, I don't totally believe in luck.  Okay, maybe if it's something silly like finding a penny on the sidewalk or something.  But I am more inclined to feel blessed for something as silly as finding a good parking space!  And lately, I have felt very blessed!  Hopefully I'll be able to explain exactly why very, very soon!

Yes, this little guy is one of my greatest blessings.  I have always felt like my Little Man was a blessing meant just for me.  As you know, his Daddy travels every week for work.  That was one of my main reasons for starting a blog--so I could connect with people when I felt so lonely at times as a new Mom and sometimes a "single" parent.

This sweet Little Man has always been my little buddy.  I don't know how to explain it, but he just looks out for me.  Yesterday, he carried my basket at the grocery store because he insisted on being a gentleman.  He put away all his toys and set the table for dinner without even being asked.  I almost cried.  I just love this boy!

So I created this 5x7 printable in Photoshop and printed and framed it!

I used the cookie cutter tool in Photoshop to create a little shamrock out of one of my favorite pictures of Little Man.

All done!  Now I just need to make one with my sweet hubby, too!

If you would like to download this blank template, just use a shamrock cookie cutter or another shamrock pattern to trace around a picture!  Cut it out and paste it on.  You can download this blank 5x7 file here.

Here are a few more fun activities that we'll be doing this weekend:

I'm going to try out making scented shamrocks just like these ones at Education.com

I can't wait to turn our toilet water green, and those footprints will be a fun extra touch!  See the tutorial for perfect footprints at A Differentiated Kindergaten.

We'll print and play this Lucky Bingo found at The Crafting Chicks.

Just like last year, we'll probably have a family "Green Dinner" and get dressed up in funny green clothes! My Mom has quite the collection of fun green clothes!

I'll come up with some cute lunch--perhaps like this one with the footprints at Lisa Storms.

And of course we'll do our Treasure Hunt just one more time!

Wishing you lots of blessings and lots of luck!!

Have a fantastic weekend!

  1. alison, that printable turned out way too cute for words! love it :)

  2. Oh my goodness, I love the printable. I always say it’s not luck, it’s called being blessed. :) And your family is so cute! I love the fun ideas you shared.

  3. I LOVE this printable! I don’t believe in luck either. And for that reason, I don’t usually get into St. P day! I pinned this to use next year and the next to decorate with :)

    Thanks!

  4. What a cute spin on it! Love it! I’m curious and excited to find out why you feel “very, very blessed”. New baby, perhaps? 😉

  5. This is a correction I always make in myself when speaking. It’s easy to say “I’m so lucky that…” or “We’ve been really lucky because…” and when I catch myself, I always try to go back & edit it to BLESSED! Even shared a testimony revolving around that concept once. We are so so, so, so blessed! Thanks for a great printable.

  6. That’s what crossed my mind, too!

  7. Adorable printable, Alison!! You are one lucky lady with that Little Man. :) I can’t wait to hear your news!

  8. Very sweet, Allison, and it’s true… you are very blessed!

  9. That’s adorable!

  10. Too Cute! Love it and many thanks for sharing :)

  11. Precious Alison!! This is perfect! Bonnie 😉

    Oh so cute. I agree with you about lucky and blessed. I don”t believe in luck, because if God didn’t want something to happen it wouldn’t. This is a terrific post. Thank you for sharing.

  13. Your little man is definitely a blessing:) He looks adorable in his little cap!

  14. Adrianne says:

    I love this.

    I was wondering if you had one that said “We’re” instead of “I’m”…?
