Poppy’s Story Now Immortalised as a Children’s Book

Poppy’s Story Now Immortalised as a Children’s Book

    Poppy Hookway is the poster girl for ‘different is beautiful’ and now her story has been captured in a unique children’s book now available for pre-order. ‘The Littlest Angel’ is a whimsical story that illustrates limb difference in a way that is both beautiful and profound – a link to Heaven. And the […]

Felt Jesse Tree Ornaments

Felt Jesse Tree Ornaments

   A little while back Sarah H posted a great tutorial on making Jesse Tree ornaments here. And while I loved her set, something I have a lot of is fabric, not wood. With this in mind I created a felt ornament set that was true to Sarah’s original painted images. Because the designs are fairly simple […]

The Hidden Life Of Mothers

The Hidden Life Of Mothers

    One of the biggest myths present in our contemporary society is that being a mother is normal, natural and, subsequently, easy. That because of its very commonness, and therefore ordinariness, all women might successfully undertake this role without any relevant experience or education. That this myth fails to recognise the all too common […]

10 Things I've Learned In 10 Years Of Marriage

10 Things I’ve Learned In 10 Years Of Marriage

  On the first day of spring this year, hubby and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. And boy did we celebrate in style, he was exhausted after working a hectic week and I was laid low with a throat infection. We had homemade pumpkin soup for dinner as it was one, a Friday and […]

You Should Be On Team Raoul

You Should Be On Team Raoul

  The Phantom of the Opera is one of those beautifully atmospheric novels, and musicals, that enthrals audiences all over the world. I confess to loving it myself – I’ve read the book more times than I can count and watched the musical, the Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler version, several times. Recently I stumbled […]

The Power Of Silence

The Power Of Silence

  They say that words are powerful but in his book The Power of Silence, Robert Cardinal Sarah makes a compelling case for the alternative. Aptly titled, this is the kind of book that speaks directly to the soul of each of us, to our desire to find and know God in a time when the […]

Our Soul’s Reflection

Our Soul’s Reflection

  When you look at yourself in the mirror, what is it that you see? Do you see a beautiful and unique daughter of God, a coheir with Christ, a woman called to a particular vocation? Yeah, me neither. We’re too concerned by the lines that are growing deeper, or the blemishes that seem to […]

Father's Day Freebies

Father’s Day Freebies

  Father’s Day rolls around every year and I’m scratching my head for ideas as to what to get hubby this year, I mean, aside from the socks and chocolate that is! Considering the amount of time hubby has to spend on the computer and his smart phone for work I decided that designing a wallpaper […]

Supernatural Heroes

Supernatural Heroes

  There is a certain type of magnetism that pulls little boys towards fictional superheroes. As the mother of 3 boys (and 2 girls) I know this all too well! Certainly, there is little wrong in wanting to be a hero and save the day – nobody in my house actually enjoys playing the villain […]
