What a difference a day makes (or a week!). This week was so much better! Got almost everything on my list crossed off and then some. 🙂

1. Read at least one chapter of  the gospel of John per day.

2. Pray the rosary each day.

3. Finish reading Letters to Katie and write review. (You can read the review here.)

4. Continue making and adding items to my Etsy shop. (Added a couple of homeschool items. Check them out here.)

5. Get up by 6:30 am each morning. (Well, I did pretty good here but was up by 7am, not 6:30 but it was still progress!)

6. Spend about half-hour of playtime with Andrew each day.

Here’s hoping for another productive week.

1. Continue reading at least one chapter of the Gospel of John per day.

Bookmarks, Bookmarks Everywhere!

I’m excited to announce that I’ve re-activated my Etsy shop! I love putting together printables and paper crafts. It is a creative outlet for me and I find it relaxing.

My focus the last couple of days have been creating gift tags and printable bookmarks. If you have spent any time here at Simple Catholic Living, you know that I love to read and I love books. Well, I love bookmarks just as much. 🙂 I collect them actually. (Even the wedding favor for my husband and my wedding was a bookmark!)

Here’s a peek at the gift tags and bookmarks I made yesterday:

Aren’t they cute? I will be making more and adding them to my shop sometime today. My plan is to create/add more printables weekly to my shop, as time permits. They won’t just be bookmarks or gift tags, either. I plan to add other paper products such as origami, notebooks, stationary, and other printables as time goes on, so check out my shop regularly (or follow me on Pinterest, where I will be adding pictures of new paper goodies as I make them).
