About the Creator!
Hi, I’m Shannon (Mama to the Johnson girls)! I live in Bettendorf, Iowa. I’ve recently transitioned from a working woman in the corporate world to a full-time mama to my three little girlies, Kennedy (5), Cameron (3), & Emerson (1). My passions are Jesus, my girls, their matching wardrobes, and being anywhere with sand, sun, & water.
You can find me chasing my wild warriors all day long from our playhouse tea parties to backyard yoga sessions all while eating way too much sugar, being way too loud, and praying my girls always view the world with rose-colored glasses (with sparkling glitter frames, of course)!
I hope you enjoy this Super Simple Leprechaun Trap Craft. You can follow me on Instagram at @shanjohnson85!
