Sponsor Love: Quarterly Update & Current Specials

I am excited to introduce you to a few new sponsors this quarter. Be sure to keep these great businesses in mind when preparing your homes for Lent and making plans for Easter!

I am also working on two giveaways for this quarter, the first will be included with this year's Baskets of Books for Easter (similar to last year's post) and the second will be Easter Basket Stuffers and Gift Ideas with a "basketful" of giveaways from my generous sponsors!

Please welcome my new sponsors by visiting their websites:

Easter at Ephesus
Easter at Ephesus is the latest release from De Montfort Music and AimHigher Recordings, the same people who recently released Christmas in Harvard Square!

The other CDs in the series (Advent at Ephesus, Lent at Ephesus, and Angles and Saints at Ephesus) are favorites in our home and I am looking forward to adding Easter at Ephesus to our collection this year!

Pre-order your copy of Easter at Ephesus over at Amazon.com today!



St. Augustine Academy Press
Last year our children received some books published by St. Augustine Academy Press for Easter and Christmas, and I'm definitely planning on including a few more titles in this year's Easter baskets! Our latest addition was the amazing new publication by Lisa Bergman, Treasure and Tradition: The Ultimate Guide to the Latin Mass. You can read my husband's review here.



Audrey Eclectic
I first ran across Audrey Eclectic last fall and have been admiring Heather's art ever since. I recently placed an order for one of her original paintings and it is simply gorgeous! In addition to the originals, prints and postcards are also available. I've been thinking the postcards would make perfect Easter Basket stuffers for little girls and I have this particular set in mind for one of mine!

Visit Audrey Eclectic Folk Art blog to enter the Giveaway for a Print of St. Brigid!
You can also follow Audrey Eclectic on Facebook and Instagram! 


A special thank you to all my returning sponsors!

"Behold Publications, LLC is more than just a publisher! Family owned and operated since its founding in 1999, we have developed great Catholic clubs like the Little Flowers Girls' Club and Blue Knights Catholic Boys' Clubs for Catholic girls and boys ages 5 and up. What makes these clubs unique is that they are at their core faithfully Catholic. We don't "tack on" Catholic identity as other clubs might, but begin and end with a Catholic world view. We also believe that local clubs best operate the way they see fit, so there is no national organization, policies, registration or dues. Groups can easily adjust the program to fit their local needs. Behold Publications also produce a line of historical fiction based on American history and American saints for ages 7-15."

  

My girls love the sweet "little habits" they received for Christmas. I'm already making plans to include more in their Easter baskets this year!

Another Christmas favorite was the beautiful embroidered scapulars from StellaMarigoldArt.  Andrea's shop is currently on vacation, but she will be re-opening later this month. You can click over to Etsy to sign up for an email notification once her shop is open again or find her on Facebook.

     

The collection of handmade soft saints available over at Trendzilly has been growing! Rose received the Saint Therese for Christmas and I am so impressed with the beautiful detail.

In addition to the soft saints, Trendzilly also offers 1st Birthday Outfits, Tutu outfits, Applique & Embroidered items, Heat Packs, Hand Warmers and Boo Boo Packs, Downloads, Party packs, Hand Sculpted items, Personalized gifts and more.
