I’m in Catholic Digest- March 2012!

They’ve been working on revamping Catholic Digest Magazine, and Danielle Bean wrote me to ask if I was interested in writing an article about celebrating St. Patrick’s day. As it turns out I was totally interested! πŸ˜‰

I’ve never written for a magazine before. It was interesting to be making St. Patrick’s day treats around Thanksgiving- lol. Look- they even mentioned my article on the cover!

It was very exciting to have my projects published in a magazine. One time Catechist Magazine mentioned Catholic Icing, and once Lydia’s art was published in Faith and Family Magazine, and I’ve done some interviews for Catholic newspapers, but this was the first time to have an article published that I actually wrote. Here’s a picture of one of the pages in my article:

Post continues after this brief information about the Catholic Icing Monthly Membership

Monthly Liturgical Membership

Catholic Liturgical Monthly Membership

Perfect for families! Each month you gain access to printable activity pages, crafts, home altar pieces, and more.
Never has living the liturgical year been so easy and affordable!

Does it make me a total nerd that I’m excited to see my name in the table of contents? πŸ˜€

My article has 5 recipes for St. Patrick’s day, and one craft. Actually, the craft I pulled from my blog. Do ya’ll remember the shamrock rosaries? Well, they’re in there. πŸ™‚ To see the rest of my projects, you’ll have to get the magazine. I was able to get a few copies from my local Catholic Shop. You can read more about Catholic Digest on their site.


  1. Lacy, congratulations! What a wonderful thing. I have been wonderfing how the Digest is going to look, now with Daniele Bean there. She’s doing great: having you write an article!!!

  2. Congratulations, this is big news! The page looks so pretty.

  3. Congratulations! Also, I wanted to let you know we received your pre-school book the other week. I shared it with a Catholic Mom’s group I am part of and they can’t wait to try all the fun things! Thank you so much for all the time and effort you placed into making it and for making it available to us.

  4. Hee hee-when i saw the shamrock rosary, i thought “hey, that looks like Lacy’s work!” then i put two and two together. πŸ™‚ congrats!! It was my first time reading CD and i really liked it!

    How exciting! Congratulations! You’ve been busy! I don’t know how you find the time!
    God Bless you for all your good works!

  8. I saw the article when I got my new Catholic Digest and love the revamp of the magazine. Great Job! I use a lot of your craft ideas for my kids at home and at religious ed.

  9. Congratulations! My husband and I just contributed to an article for Catholic Digest on behalf of CCL (the Couple to Couple League). It’s supposed to come out in May, I think. Can’t wait to read yours!

  10. I noticed your name when I got my magazine in the mail πŸ™‚
    congrats ! you must be thrilled !!!

  11. Lacy, you’re blog and all of the other Catholic women’s blogs are so great I am not sure that I would ever subscribe to CD again. Congrats on your article!

  12. Congratulations & thank you for all your offerings!

  13. Saw it and thought of you! Love your excitement — that’s why some of us get addicted to bylines!

    Congratulations and praise GOD, Lacy! πŸ™‚ SOOO happy for you! πŸ™‚ I remember the first time I saw my name in the table of contents of the magazine where I had my first published article too! πŸ™‚ I was acting like a TOTAL NERD! LOL! πŸ™‚ To this day, I still feel the same! Even if it’s just an article published online! haha! πŸ™‚ More power, more articles, more love, more blessings, more and more of everything good for you and your family! God bless always! ~ Tina of http://www.trulyrichmom.com and http://www.teachermamatina.blogspot.com πŸ™‚

  15. Lacy,
    Your links aren’t working – I want to retrieve the directions for the Cake craft for the Nativity of Mary posted in September 2011 and it keeps saying 404 Error. I have looked by month, by subject, by your gallery link, by search, and I can’t get it. Please help! I am supposed to be doing this tomorrow with 6 girls and I can’t remember how to make the ‘icing’ and need the template for the cake slice.

    More importantly, congratulations on this article and your website in general. You do a great job and I have enjoyed doing many of your ideas with my children.

    • You’re right! Some of my posts disappeared when I moved to WordPress- looks like that was one of them. I tried to retrieve it from blogger and put it up for you, but blogger is being stupid. Just google “microwave puff paint recipe” and also “printable cake template”. Print the templates, and decorate with the paint.

  16. Yes! I get this magazine. That is awesome!!

  17. Karianna@CaffeinatedCatholicMama says

    How exciting!! I’ve been looking for a Catholic mag to subscribe to… and I think I’ve found it. I love how small the blogging world can feel!

  18. Dawn Farias says

    Oh.My.Goodness. That is so cool! Congratulations!

  19. Congratulations!!!

  20. Congratulations! That is awesome! I would be so excited to see my name in a magazine! Way to go!

  21. Congrats, Lacy! I’m passing on an award to you. Have a peaceful and Holy Lent!

  22. Congratulations Lacy!! Now you’re generosity of heart and craftiness will bless countless others! You should be a staple in the Catholic Digest in my humble opinion!! I just received this magazine so I will check it out! Have a Blessed Lenten Journey.

  23. Kitty Cleveland says

    Congratulations, Lacy! I hope you consider becoming a regular contributor–maybe you could have a monthly column simply called “Catholic Icing.” It’s such a clever name, and your ideas do add that “little something extra and sweet” to being Catholic! πŸ™‚ God bless you, Kitty Cleveland

  24. Polka Dot Mommy says

    I actually was worried when I saw the shamrock rosary in the new issue… I have only perused the magazine so far so I hadn’t made the connection… but I’m glad to hear someone didn’t rip off your craft!

    I’m excited for you! The article looks great… I love the snack ideas, we will be using them in my daycare for sure!


    • I love that you recognized the rosary! Even though it was me, I try not to get upset when people “rip off” my stuff. I try to keep in mind that sometimes people genually have the same ideas. πŸ™‚

  25. Wow! Crazy awesome cool! Congratulations!

  26. Nancy Buckley says

    Yay for you! I subscribe to CD and I did see your article in there. I hope they contact you again for more great articles and craft ideas. Have a blessed Easter!
