Thanks again to Hallie @ Betty Beguiles for hosting this weeks Quick Takes while Jen @ Conversion Diary finishes writing her book!
Did you enjoy DEAL DAY WEDNESDAY? I have teamed up with several bloggers who have offerred to share their deals and match-ups with other bloggers so I’m hoping to post more deals in the future! Are there any stores/deals in general you are looking for? Let me know so I can be on the look out for those types of deals.
Remember last week when I made the Valentine Recycled Crayons? Since we don’t need crayons and my sister DESPERATELY needed crayons in her daycare classroom I gave them all to her and her kids LOVE them! The “cupcake” crayons look like little Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and her kids are always saying, “I want the crayons that look like candy!” and my sister is always telling them, “It’s NOT candy! Don’t eat it!” What do you expect from 3 year olds?
In March my diocese is hosting an Eucharistic Congress. Our Bishop has seen them do it in other diocese’s and says we need to have one too. We are still trying to figure out exactly what it is (including the Bishop) but during it we are hosting a children’s track with games and activities about the Eucharistic on their level and I have volunteered to help with that and other Young Adults are helping so I’m pretty excited about that!
Earlier this week I posted about my Lenten Meal Plan Monday Link-Up that I will be hosting during Lent. I have been trying to advertise it all over the place and am super excited that a ton of people have responded that they are going to participate in the link-up or are excited about reading all the posts. After doing Wordless Advent during Advent I was having so many issues trying to come up with a similar idea and hope it works out just as well.
During Lent I am also going to host a Lenten Video Series. One day a week I am going to post a video that is Lent related. Here is a sneak preview:
I LOVE Matt Maher 🙂
Your text here. A few weeks ago I got a PERK from KLOUT for Mini Moo Cards! Moo Cards are sooo pretty and professional looking I ordered some for my blog. If your hear from getting one of my cards thank you for stopping by! I feel like a real professional blogger now that I have business cards. Which is your favorite card?
Go like my cousin Steve’s Facebook Fan Page. Even if you don’t live in NY he is trying to start in the real-estate business and just created a Facebook Fan Page! I’d really appreciate it if you helped him get more LIKES! Plus he posts a lot of inspirational quotes and good articles about the housing market!
For more Quick Takes, visit Hallie @ Betty Beguiiles!

I think I like the purple one that says Catholic Couponer the most. 🙂 Although they’re all pretty cute.

Beth, you might be interested in this website and program: http://www.therealpresence.org/eucharst/pea/children.htm by Fr. Antoine Thomas. He is a wonderful priest that I was blessed to meet while in highschool. He is devoted to bringing the little children to the Eucharist and I cannot possibly run out of good things to say about him and his program. Also, you might be interested in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd: http://www.cgsusa.org/ It is used where I’m from among the homeschoolers and the children (and parents!) love it.

I’ll mention your link up on Sunday when I discuss Lent — Lacey at Catholic Icing usually has a Lenten linkup. I’m sure you could post it there.

Oh your crayons turned out awesome!! So funny that your sis is a 3 year old daycare teacher; so am I!! I wanted to give my crayons to them too but I only made 6. :-/ I could bring them in to use though (instead of giving them away like I originally wanted). Thanks for the inspiration!
I LOVE your business cards!!! Where are you passing them out? I need to make more.
For Love of Cupcakes
