This is my favorite time of year for finding four leaf clovers. The patches are just emerging from the sleepy earth and the friendly green weeds are perfect and unblemished (and not yet mowed). I've already scored about two dozen this month. My mission, being so early in the gathering season, is to find a tiny one. Here's what I know: if you find one four leaf clover, you are likely to find another in the same patch. Most people walk away with their luck before taking a second look. Here's my How-To for Pressing Your Luck, literally.
I'm thinking I might be pressing my luck, of another kind, by purchasing a lottery ticket. Hey, why not? It's been fun to watch the bounty raised for the MegaMillion drawing tonight. If I win, Shamrock Shakes are on me. Our son Peter came home from his convenient store job last night very tired from standing at the lottery till all evening. The lines were long at the ATM as neighbors collected cash then relined up at the register to wish on a number. Good luck!
And while I'm talking about How-To, let me direct you to a new button in the right sidebar. TUTORIALS will take you to a page I'm working on. The cool thing about typepad blogs is you can set up static pages where you can easily re-post visuals and information from previous posts. I'm culling my blog for useful information that can be organized and easily referenced on the tutorial page. It's a work-in-progress. So far I have completed reposting archived data on Carving Stamps to support an upcoming article I will have in Somerset Studio (May/June 2012). The article will discuss WHY to carve.....didn't want to waste the real estate on HOW, since that information can be found in many places, and now HERE.
So tell me....
1. Have you found a four leaf clover?
2. Did you buy a MegaMillions lottery ticket this week?
3. What tutorials are you interested in seeing?
