Feast Day Fun: Holy Family!

This is one of my favorite Feast Days of the whole Liturgical Calendar!

The Feast of the Holy Family!

I’ve made a number of Holy Family/ Nativity sets over the years. This was a gift for Bill, the Christmas before we were married. The figures were loosely based on patterns I found in a magazine…and the clothing and the stable were architected improvised with limited sewing skills.

7 Quicker Takes Friday

I managed to miss Small Success Thursday and I’m skipping to 7 Quicker Takes, and posting late.

I finally finished my 3 Kings last weekend…but haven’t had the time to launch them on their journey around the house. I think I may need to go old school and begin on Christmas Day, no longer trying to convert the Elf on the Shelf into Elves on the Shelves…or at least resort to differently timing.

3 Kings off to a late (or early?) start

 If you have been watching my blog, you may have noticed that I don’t tend to do things the easy way.  If there is something I can makefor our own family set, I do.  I spend a lot of time making Catholic Printables, but sometimes I just need to make stuff, with felt, scissors and glue. I’m not an expert sewer (wow, did I just call myself an artificial, usually underground conduit for carrying off sewage or rainwater ?) but I have decided that the little flaws in my sewing projects are what make them so unique.

Keeping Christ in Christmas

I’m co-hosting the Keeping Christ in Christmas Blog Carnival, hosted by Arma Dei: Equipping Catholic Families, Raising (& Teaching) Little Saints, Truly Rich Mom and the Catholic Bloggers Network. We’ll be sharing different ways, tips, stories and real-life experiences that will help us focus on Jesus as the Reason for the Christmas season. Please scroll down to the end of the post to see the list of carnival entries.                 Does anyone else approach Christmas at the beginning of Advent with the thought that this year will be different, and then by the 3rd Sunday of Advent start to panic and anxiously trying to buy extra gifts to supplement, maybe even tackle an ambitious homemade family gift? I’m doing it again.

Thanks to Erika andTina and this opportunity for reflection, I’m refocusing! How can I remind myself and my family of the true focus of Christmas?

 
Is it quickly adding program to the family event Christmas dinner….reintroducing a dialogue of thankfulness?
