So many of you have been waiting patiently…ever so patiently…for me to get the last of the Nativity items added to the shop.
I am finally done!
I’m sorry that it took quite a bit longer than I planned. As I design these crafts, my goal is to make projects that:
1) Can be done by people who are not especially crafty
2) Can be done by people who do not own craft supplies
3) Are appealing to different ages
4) Can be done either in families or in large groups like church schools
5) Are economical
6) Stay true to Orthodoxy
Sticking to those goals can get pretty complicated, but I pray that I have done so. I had to leave behind several ideas that just didn’t come together. Forgive me if you were hoping for something that I wasn’t able to do.
Come visit the shop and see the final item list for the rest of 2010. There are twenty resources for Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple, Thanksgiving Day, St. Nicholas Day, and Nativity of Christ.
The Learning Boxes are new and improved with sturdier boxes and printed (rather than e-book) study guides. The Ark of the Covenant in the Entrance of the Theotokos Box and the sheep with real wool in the Nativity of Christ Box are favorites of mine.
I’ll be back later this week to actually WRITE in this blog. My brain has had no room for anything creative other than rhinestones, pom-poms, and pipe cleaners. I’m looking forward to sharing with you about how we strive in our family to live an Orthodox life. See you soon!
