Happy St. Patrick's Day from the Etsy Owls!

The Etsy Owls are at it again working on another challenge! The object for this month's challenge is to create something in any medium that illustrates your very favorite part of St. Patrick's Day. Mine was easy. Green beer is fun. :) We may have to think of other holidays where we can dye beer other colors. For Christmas, we could have red mugs and green mugs. For Easter, we could have pastel beer. :) For my birthday, I think I would want purple beer. Anyway, since the challenge is St. Patty's Day-related, I had no choice but to make a green beer mug. My point, though, is that I think beer would be fun in any color and why don't we dye it for other holidays? I may have to change that.

I ended up making a felt brooch. This is my first time to delve into the world of brooching, but it was really fun. There's some pretty fine detail work depending on how detailed the object is you're trying to replicate, but I had some really sharp scissors and just a tad of patience. I think it turned out pretty nicely. I may be doing more of this. I just thought of another one I could make! Watch out for that one... :)

In any case, there is voting happening and you should get in on the action! If you like my mug, please vote for me! I'm pretty proud of myself, I can tell you that much. :) If you like any of the other entries, my fellow owlettes would also love your support.

You can vote in one of two ways. You can either go straight to the Etsy Owls blog and vote here. Or, if that doesn't work, you can go to our voting website at Votigo. Vote for me or just support the Owls in general. Happy St. Patrick's Day and thanks for voting!
