1. Thank the person who nominated you and give their link. Thank you again, Alyianna!
2. Tell us how the idea of making a blog popped into your head and why you continue it.
I actually started a blog for my husband to post the articles he was writing for our local paper, but it eventually turned onto a general family blog to share pictures with relatives who live far away. I was also adding our homeschool, Catholic crafts, and other Catholic activities. I LOVE making up faith-centered crafts and activities! Since the Catholic crafts were getting so much attention, I thought it would be less confusing for all of you if I separated my personal family posts from the Catholic activities posts. That’s when I started a “new” blog with only those crafty posts. This is that “new” blog.
As for why I continue…well, I’ve gotten a lot of “thank yous”. That helps me see that others are using my ideas and hopefully it’s helping them on their spiritual journey.
