You may have noticed less frequent posting over here at Equipping Catholic Families. We took a little extra family time this summer and we’re just now getting refocused on the blog and a few new creative projects including some Cathletics Craft Kits!
I’m part of a group called Zelie and Co!Zelie & Co is a group of Catholic women artisans. They work collaboratively to support each other’s business growth, pray for each other, and offer weekly sales on Instagram @zelieandco. Their patron saint is St Zelie, lacemaker and mother of St Therese, the Little Flower. Zelie&Co Catholic Artisans are excited to partner with some of our Catholic Community’s most beloved Bloggers to support some amazing Catholic Charities with an Auction of beautiful Catholic gifts and crafts on February 9th, 2016 Here at Arma Dei: Equipping Catholic Families, I am partnering with Gina at Someday Saints=&1=&to offer you a #CatholicCrafts Bundle…just in time for Lent!

Just finished the NEW and IMPROVED Catholic Shop and Blog Planner!
This year, it’s embellished with Kelly Saints on the calendar and Divider Tabs to organize your Passwords, Blog and Social Media Stats, Guest Posts, Contributor Posts, Ad Space, Sponsor Buttons…and more!!
Last year in my attempt to get more organized, I compiled my own Catholic Blog Planner complete with
- a 12 month calendar including key Catholic Feast Days and Seasons, space to record top referrers, top posts, giveaways, reviews, guest posts and events happening that month
- a table of PASSWORDS,
- a table of blog stats on an increasing number of social media venues
- a log template of guest posts, contributor articles and giveaways I participated in
Finally, I had one binder to include written records of key passwords, contact information, dates and all those pesky details I expect to remember at the time only to forget them well before I need the info again.
