Artist Trading Cards: A Marian Swap and a few pictures from the For all the Saints Swap!

We are all so pleased to hear that Kimberlee is hosting another Marian ATC Swap!   We loved participating in the Marian and For All the Saints ATC swaps last year, and look forward to participating again.  Head over to Pondered in my Heart for all the Details!  

Seeing the announcement reminded me that I still had a post in my drafts folder with pictures of the Artist Trading Cards that my children sent and received last fall! For some reason I didn't take a picture of the cards Rascal and Snuggles received and I wanted to do so before finishing the post, then never did...  Here are the pictures that I did take: 

by Captain (age 10)
St. Gerard, St. Ignatius, St. Patrick,
St. Paul and Our Lady of Guadalupe

by Rascal (age 8) 
St. Mark, St. Margaret Mary, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton,
St. Gabriel and St. Nicholas

by Twinkle Toes (age 7)
St. Theodore Guerin, St. Margaret Mary, St. Brigid,
and two of St. Catherine of Alexandria

by Chiquita (age 5) 
St. Bernadette, St. Rose, St. Catherine of Laboure,
St. Therese and St. Clare

by Snuggles (age 3)
St. Michael the Archangel

The Cards our Children Received last Fall:

My children were very excited to receive a couple cards from their friends, including one of my Godsons.  Captain was also very excited to see a picture that was sent to me by the mother of a boy who received one of his cards, and recognized him from this blog!  It was very sweet, and it made me laugh hearing his reaction, saying "Mom, you are NOT going to believe this!"  SO cute!!  I could picture my boys doing the same thing!

for Twinkle Toes (age 7)

My children have loved adding the cards they receive to their Holy Card Collection Albums.  Thank you so much, Kimberlee and family, for hosting these fun swaps for all of us! 

So, will your family be creating some Art for Our Lady this year? 


  1. Happy Mothers Day to you and Congrats and prayers your way because...you lucky lucky mama...you are going to have a baby!

    You are so blessed.

  2. yes! we are planning to participate in our very first "Artist Trading Cards" swap! It's so exciting, isn't it? My girls are already working on their cards, and putting so much effort into it, becasue its "for Our Lady!" :-)
    Blessings to you all~

  3. Beautiful cards.

    I am going to request something of you and please don't feel you have to oblige me....

    I googled on your site "schedule" and printed a schedule you followed a couple years ago. I'm trying to follow it a little, at least the morning part. (not the school part--we are almost done and do different stuff)

    I was wondering if you could sometime post your schedule now...just the general schedule, wake up times, prayer times, school times, play times, meals....etc....Including your times, computer, exercise, prayer time, (which prayers do YOU pray), etc...?

    If this is too hard, any way you could just email it to me?

    I'm struggling and praying about it and you came to my mind, which is why I printed it up late last night.

    Our morning prayer time was about an hour and 1/2 later than yours today, but hoping that will get moved up as we get used to it.

  4. Jamie ~ I'll send you an email! :)

  5. Jamie Jo listed exactly what I would like to know. My daily schedule is just basically mealtimes and I fill in the rest around it the best I can, but it's not really working very well. Would you mind copying me on the email? I could sure use some help! :)
