Sponsor Love: Quarterly Update & Current Specials

Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to all of my new (and returning!) sponsors for the next quarter (May/June/July) here at Shower of Roses. Please consider visiting and supporting these wonderful online businesses and blogs.  You will find quite a few specials and coupon codes listed below, and be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post for the upcoming dates for the Shower of Roses annual Online Curriculum Sale Blog Hop!

Please welcome my new sponsors by visiting their websites:

Holy Learning
Holy Learning is a mom-owned, small Catholic company created to help Catholic families and teachers supplement their educational programs. Our products are meant to help parents and educators teach the Catholic faith using hands-on materials and projects. Our primary product is the Faith Folder, which is our version of a lapbook but we also carry Faith Rings, Faith Cards and an Adoration Guidebook. New products are continually being developed. All of the products are available in digital pdf file format. Print materials are only made available by special request and on a limited basis. 

This month you can purchase Three Faith Folders for $25
with coupon code "325" effective May 1-31, 2014.


Saints 365
Saints 365 is a Catholic blog by Debbie Gaudino, a happily married, homeschooling Mom of 2 children who is currently studying theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville. The subtitle of the blog is "Striving for the heights of holiness in the trenches of everyday life". Visit Saints 365 for down-to-earth reflections which draw from the scriptures, the wisdom of the saints and church teachings and join us as we all strive together to live out the "universal call to holiness".



Bridgie & Green
Bridgie & Green is founded on the belief that everyone can incorporate a little bit of their Catholic heritage into their everyday accessories. A homemaker and homeschooling mother to six, she handcrafts affordably priced gorgeous little things for like-minded people who want to show the world who their friends are while standing out from the Catholic crowd. She also, life allowing, knits and crochets adorable items for babies and kids.

If you are interested in advertising at Shower of Roses,




I have had many requests to host the annual Online Curriculum Sale Blog Hop earlier this year, so I've decided to host two! (You can find last year's book sale here.) The first link up will be posted sometime on Monday, May 5th and remain open until May 15th. The second link up will run, as usual, from August 1st to 7th. Shower of Roses visitors are welcome to participate in one or both of the link ups. See you soon!
