Welcome to My Modest Blog!

I've always been a crafty person. I love the visual arts and just like to create things. I tend to stare at each item in awe when it is complete... thinking "I made this!?" Call me a hopeless romantic, but the old days had it right in many ways, including traditional homemaking. I've been hobby sewing and crafting since I was a little girl. But in recent years, I found it necessary to sew clothes for my girls to keep them modestly dressed. While nursing my babies, I began making nursing covers for myself and friends. I've also done furniture restoration, crocheting, baking, painting/drawing, photography and more. Enjoying these feminine crafts and other projects has made me want to share my ideas and talents.

I hope to provide you with great ideas and quality products that will "keep you covered!" Some items will be available at an Etsy Shop. Also enjoy my tips and examples on this blog!

Rosary Hangers and Lenten Crosses

While looking around at the options for rosary holders, I really came short.  I came across these inexpensive wood crosses just before lent.

I had the kids “Carry their Cross” around during lent, especially to the Friday Stations. It was worn and dirty, and sometimes to them it weighed a hundred pounds. We put the crosses away for Holy Saturday. Then on Easter Sunday we decoupaged them adding a hook to make rosary hangers from them.
Find these crosses at your local craft store.

There's always room for cake!

Sure, I could go to the local stores and buy a pre-made cake, or I could just fix up a box cake and slap on the frosting, top it off with a candle and sprinkles and that’d just be fine for something that gets devoured in minutes.
But I prefer to add a touch of my own artistic abilities to the process…
