Simple All Saints’ Day Tea Party

So I've lived in places with excellent Catholic communities (such as Steubenville Ohio, and Northern Virginia) and I've lived in places with a far lesser Catholic presence (like South Carolina, where we currently live.) Although I still have an amazing virtual Catholic community, I don't really have Catholic friends that live here in town, but I decided not to let that stop me from celebrating All … [Read more...]

Ok, as promised when I debuted the Printable Passion set for peg dolls, here is the Resurrection set counterpart! (And I now have a post about painting these little guys in 3 different styles- check it out here.)

Playing With Saint Peg Dolls- What To Do, How To Store, and More!

I knew one thing as soon as I signed up for the peg doll exchange- at our house, these were meant to be classic toys, not knick knacks to collect dust! I wanted the kids to really play with them.
