There was such a great response from my “Shop Catholic Etsy” feature a few weeks ago, let’s go another round, shall we?? The beauty of shopping Catholic Etsy is that you’re purchasing from fellow Catholics supporting their families, actualizing their hopes, and sharing their talents.
These shops are run by some seriously blessed women – women whose passions have extended beyond the home to reach just about anyone. Use coupon code THECATHOLICWIFE from today through Monday, Dec. 7th, 2015.
If you want to make your home more cozy: Faith & Fabric
Jen Frost is an absolute sweetheart. She creates at Faith & Fabric on Etsy, creating quilted items, Jesse Tree ornaments (her most popular!), table textiles, and patterns you can print and work from yourself! I love her design for an Advent quilt and I know her DIY Wooden Holy Family Kit would be awesome for my Funny Four.
It’s clear from her start up story that Jen has passion and talent in one place: “My husband and I wanted to celebrate Advent (and hold off on putting up any Christmas decorations until Christmas), but still wanted to add a bit of décor to our home. I shopped around and – with the exception of an Advent wreath – came up empty handed. A sweet quilter friend showed me how to sew some purple strips together to make a table runner, and BOOM – a new passion was born. I started looking for more Catholic/Christian patterns out on the market to make, and couldn’t find anything celebrating the liturgical year. So, I started making my own quilts, writing patterns, and sharing them on Etsy…[O]thers can make them and bring a bit faith-inspired décor into their home.” Beautiful.
Gifts Available: Jesse Tree ornaments, table textiles, quilted items, & patterns

For Baby Wearers: Lily & Mama
Kaitlyn Facista makes the most fabulous linen baby slings and has lately had reason to use one herself, being blessed with another little one just five weeks ago! “I started making slings after falling in love with babywearing when my daughter, Lily, was about six months old. Since then, this business has grown into both a way to help support my family and a way to shine the light of Christ to families around the world. It has been so helpful to be able to wear my children — especially now that I have a newborn — and it makes me so happy to be able to share my products with other mamas.”
Gifts Available: Linen baby slings
