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!

Pocket Saints and Holy Friends

We've enjoyed our Pocket Friends, and moved on to making Pocket Saints. These are all character drawings on wood craft sticks. A fun family project, a quiet time activity, party favor/activity, or stocking stuffer!
dscn1062 Saints were ordinary people who did extraordinary things in the name of God. You can find images of the saints online for inspiration, and be sure to read about them too! I’d suggest writing a fun fact on the back of each Pocket Saint and use them like flash cards with your children. We wrote the saint name, patron of… and feast day. Our daughter enjoyed making these three Saints for her collection. We’re hoping to make a Nativity play set for her little brothers! dscn1024   Read more about Pocket Friends on Modest Mommies
