today is a holiday

while the rest of the world celebrates st. patty's day, i'm celebrating my adorable nephew's birthday! he's a bundle of pure joy and i'm sad we don't get to spend the day together, so i crammed, jam-packed-to-the-brim an envelope of goodies.

like these crayons i made:

which are to be kept in here {an old tazo tea can}:

and these fun recipe cards:

plus a handmade card and paper bunting:

and a little craft kit, zoo stickers, toy story sticker pack, coloring book, mini bottles of bubbles and easter window clings:

all topped off with origami luck stars and candy!
i spent like a week putting it all together, and i loved every second of it! my big sister said he had a great time opening it and sent me this as proof:
added bonus: he's wearing the yo gabba gabba hat i made him for valentine's day that sis says he tries to sleep in. 
could he be any cuter??
