Miniature Memory Game: Converted to Catholic!

I saw this cute Miniature Memory Game and thought I’d like to ‘convert it to Catholic’!
I found my 3/4″ circle punch and started cutting out the images.  I figured I could use duplicate holy cards (not that I really want to cut into them, but you can get such beautiful saint images!), or duplicate Christmas cards for the images.
I happen to have the added advantage of having lots of Cathletics Playing Cards and Reverence and Awe Collector Cards.  The Reverence and Awe Collector Cards have colorful illustrations of Vessels and Vestments and Sacramentals which are great for these miniatures.  Depending on how they are cropped, they could be a little abstract…but very interesting.  I just have to make sure to crop them in the same place, so that the 2 images are identical.

The Treasure Chest is Back! …and Our Response to St. John Paul II


The Treasure Chest is back in print!

Twenty years ago, a Mom of two young kids, I began collecting ideas for crafts and activities to celebrate and teach the Catholic Faith at home. Tapping into the Liturgical Calendar of our Church, what I thought would be just a little booklet for my Catholic Mom friends, turned into a 300 page book. When we weren’t quite satisfied with our publisher options, we decided to embark on a brand new journey of self-publishing. My business-prof-husband cold-called our growing directory of Catholic Book stores in North America and we carefully chose our family vacation routes by the Catholic Book Stores we could visit on the way.
