Hi everyone!
I hope you are all having a great week!
St. Valentine’s day is quickly approaching! Can you believe that!?!

My family and I have decided to celebrate St. Valentine’s day early this year, since Feb. 14 falls just after Ash Wednesday, during Lent. We don’t what to disrupt the somber Lenten fasting with cookies and candy. So if you are concerned about the conflict of candy and Lent, please, plan ahead!

I haven’t done one of my 22nd link-up parties in awhile. How about I add one today?
Sure it’s a day late, but I don’t think you’ll mind!
This link-up is for ideas to help moms and dads in our domestic church!
Feel free to add any post about Catholic decor, crafts, and activities we can do with our kids. It can also include, home-school ideas, organization, or any other post that can help Catholic families find more faith-filled-center in our everyday life.
So grab your tea and a comfortable chair. Then share with us what works for you and your family and check out what other Catholics have to share with you. Hopefully, you’ll find something that can help you and your domestic church!

The Rules:
  • Please add a post about Catholic decor, arts, and crafts, home-school ideas, organization, or any other post that can help Catholic families find a more faith-filled-center in our everyday life.
  • Link to me on your blog/post so others can come and join in too! You may use one of my buttons if you like, or just make a text link of your own.

Okay, here is the link-up!
Blessings to you all!


  1. These are great. Would you please make the bracelets printable in black and white? Thank you for considering!

  2. Thank you so much, Gabrielle! You should be able to print them in black and white. Just change the setting on your computer before printing. Thanks again and God bless!

  3. You have some wonderful ideas here! Great idea to celebrate before Ash Wednesday, we will be doing that at our house.

  4. Gabrielle, Do you mean black and white to color? I'm sorry, I think I may have misunderstood you! I'll see what I can do to make them into something you can color. Blessings.

  5. Thanks Jen! I was kinda sad when I saw Feb 14 was during Lent. But like I've said before, kids don't care if you celebrate late or early! Blessings to you and all your kiddo's!

  6. Yes, Jennifer, I just wanted to have something my class can use to color and then either share or wear themselves. I can't afford to print in color for the entire group. Thank you so much!

  7. Okay, Gabrielle, I added a page that can be colored. I did my best. I hope that will work for you! Gotta run! God bless you and your class!

  8. Thanks so much for these wonderful resources! God bless you! 🙂

  9. Wow! Thank you so very much for accomodating my need. You're a real blessing!

  10. Wow! I must go get my ink cartridges refilled immediately :-). Good idea to celebrate early. I wasn't sure what to do about the 14th being the day after Ash Wed!!

  11. Thanks for sharing so many of your valentine crafts; my girls are going to enjoy them all! And thanks for hosting the link up.

  12. This is a great post!! Just wondering, are you going to open the linky?

  13. Hi Jennifer, I was wondering the same thing as Xhonane. I finally have one that I could post but it's closed. Let me know if you open it up and I'll add mine to it. Thanks!

  14. Hi Xhonane and Noreen! I'm sorry for being so slow to answer your comments. Family life has been keeping me very busy! I have reopened the link-up for you. Thanks for asking to link-up!! Blessing to you all on this feast of Our Lady of Lourdes! ♥♥♥

  15. Hi Jennifer, I love your St. Valentine printable and used it this year. Thanks for sharing it. I'm also new to your blog but will be a regular now. 🙂 God bless you.
