This is a great idea for Lent. I’m excited about ordering a batch of these Rosary Booklets made by Nancy at Do Small Things With Love. I’m also excited to get the Lenten reflection coloring pages to go along with each day in Lent… I think it will help me slow down and take time each day to pray the Rosary with my family, and spend some quiet time with God….
The Rosary booklets are $8 each for a hardcopy/printed booklet. If you order 2, it’s only $15. And you get the coloring book pages too! Sweet!

A nice article and suggestions as we begin Advent this year. When you are not in the “perfect place for a perfect Advent”, here are some tips and suggestions to keep in mind by CatholicMom.com!
My friend is making these most adorable saint dolls! Something I’ve admired but have been too afraid to start… it seems like a daunting task to paint wooden dolls to actually look the way they are supposed to… but she did it!!! I was so excited for her and impressed by her work that I made her a little website so she could showcase her projects and take orders. I think her little saint dolls would be perfect as St. Nicholas or Epiphany gifts, and of course for Chirstmas! Check it out! She calls her shop Lovely Lady in Blue Boutique!

Jessica from Shower of Roses shared a delicious sounding way to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday today. I’m always behind with the novena and everything leading up to this very special day, so I appreciate it when I can see a simple way to get our children’s attention and incorporate the meaning and history of Divine Mercy Sunday. Here is a link to her post on her website. Always a great resource!
I just saw this post from Tracy at Our Simple Homestead about how they incorporate the meaning of Easter – Christ rising from the dead – into their Easter Egg Hunt. I thought her ideas were great and am going to try to incorporate these verses and symbols into our Easter. Thanks Tracy!
We used to do this all the time at home with my parents. My dad is about half Polish. I remember him taking our Easter basket of newly stuffed sausages and eggs, some wine and some bread to our priest on Holy Saturday for a blessing. I think we were the only ones doing it then!
Some Easter traditions and recipes found on Delishably.
We did this last year on Holy Thursday so I’m getting prepared ahead of time a bit. The kids really enjoyed the meal and the symbolism of all the aspects of this special meal. Thanks to Catholic Cuisine for the great resources and explanation. Below is a photo of our family and our dinner set up from last year.
Cay Gibson of Cajun Cottage Press has her Spring Planner and Book of Days on sale now, through the end of January. If anyone is interested in checking out these lovely planners, click the image or here to go to her Etsy Store. I also have one on order for myself, so if you are near me and want to see one up close, get in touch 🙂
I’m late getting this posted because this was a give-away from last week from Shower of Roses. But I thought the ideas and links in the post were worth saving and going through for ideas.
This is a nicely written post on Catholic News Agency today, by Jenny of Mama Needs Coffee, titled “Silver Linings of a Small Budget Christmas“. She makes some very good points that are good to keep in mind no matter what our budgets allow or don’t allow. Merry Christmas!
