My friend Amy has been hosting a “Craft Basket Wednesday” for a couple months now, and although I’ve wanted to join in I just haven’t found the time for much “crafting” lately.
However, this week I’ve been working on finishing up a little set of Carmelite dolls, which had been sitting in the cupboard since the fall. It looks like Amy and I are both making Carmelites this week!!
Yesterday I added their eyes, and I am still trying to decide if I want to add mouths and perhaps some praying hands as well. Or perhaps I should add a crucifix and roses and turn them all into little mini St. Therese dolls… What do you think?
While I am at it, I thought I would also share a picture of my St. Catherine of Siena. I painted her awhile back and never did post a picture. I am hoping to make another one like her for one of our Goddaughters!
So, what crafts have you been working on lately?

Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
