Lent is here!

This Lent I have made a number of pledges to do a little more of this, a lot less of that and am really trying to not let my left hand know what the right is doing. Have worked on a couple of really cool custom projects early this year. The first being a complete set of disciples and Jesus for a Last Supper Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Atrium. I am still new at Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and have much to learn. I hope to do other items like this and my Jesus the Good Shepherd Set that can be used as teaching aids for kids. The other project is similar in nature and is for a fellow home schooler. I have created a Visitation play set similar to the Annuciation play set I introduced last year this time. If you're the mother who ordered this, it goes out in the mail this weekend. : - )
I also have on my list a couple of other play sets that I hope to get out before Lent gets away from me.
Another thing getting a lot of my attention right now is a long term mural project I am working on for local dental office. It's a series of themed treatment rooms. I'm only about half way through and it's been a daunting but great challenge. Working on this scale is fun but takes a lot of energy. Imagine a whirling dervish with a paint palette and you get the idea.
Well, I wanted to post a little something to make sure my blog account hadn't expired for lack of use. I'll be back soon. Promise!

God bless.

St. Luke's Brush is back with 19 new dolls and updates to many more! It is only by the intercession and prayers of those favored by God that I have been able to do this work. Though I am an unworthy servant, God has given me this opportunity to use my talents to serve Him. It is with a grateful heart that I begin 2012. Peace.

Happy New Year!

We had so much to be thankful for this year - too many blessings to count. On the Feast of the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God our little shepherds gathered at the Creche. Wishing you all the peace and happiness.

St. Luke's Brush First Anniversary

 Today we celebrated an important milestone. One year ago today, we opened St. Luke's Brush!

So tonight we celebrated with cake. Cake surrounded by some of our dearest friends.

 We included our children's patrons and some dear intercessors who have been with us each step of the way!

 Our littlest product tester was anxious to test the cake!

And then he quickly snatched "his saints" and rushed off to put them back in his box to keep them safe.

Thank you all for your continued support of our business!

Soaking Up The Last of Summer

Yes, we are still here! We enjoyed the last days of summer at the pool. Now we are back into school and activities and such. Life has been busy and exciting and full of changes!
