WELCOME! We are very excited to have finally re-launched our new website after almost a full year in development! You’ll see things are looking pretty spiffy around here and with all sorts of shiny new bells and whistles – so let the horn-tooting begin!
What’s new? This blog for starters! We’ve meet so many fun, kind, prayerful and faith filled people over the past six years and wanted to find a way to capture these budding friendships, memories and travel experiences to look back on (yep, we’re nostalgic that way). My husband Roberto, or “Tito” as many of you know him by, is my hard working partner; quiet, but a jokester and happily assists me with heavy lifting, keeping me on schedule and constantly handing water bottles to me, telling me to drink (I talk a lot). He happily does this because he enjoys being around spirit filled people along with the evangelizing and witnessing holy spirit moments.
We both love every aspect in traveling to conferences, from packing “road food” the night before, to getting an early start (long before the world is up) and that first early morning cup of coffee sipped from our travel thermos’… “officially” waking us up. Our minds wander and we visit as we drive through big cities and rural towns, over hills and through the plains, in moody weather and on cheery, sunny days, seeing the world’s largest “this or that” (balls of twine, etc.), but of course, the best part of all, is arriving to the venue and awaiting meeting all of you… and then the adventure really begins! We simply love it (just like dad and mom did)! And as a photo taking enthusiast who finds fun and interest in just about everything, a blog just seemed like a good fit. We hope you enjoy.
New products! We’ve added new baby apparel and gear to the shop where you’ll see our handsome little nephew Max modeling the “Totus Tootus” onsie (Latin translation; “Totally Toots”). We have also added fun Rosary Symbol and Totus Tuus themed pillowcases – perfect for the college crowd, newlyweds, clergy and the Catholic who seemingly has everything. And if all goes as planned, we’ll add a new line of sterling silver Catholic themed jewelry, from saints medals and chains to rosaries, straight from the mines of Mexico.
SPLASHES of Color! In addition to new products, we felt it was about time to refresh our color palettes. The long sleeve rosary symbols tees are now available in brighter, more vivid colors AND the new “heather” blend material is super soft, lightweight and oh so comfortable to wear. Because of their overwhelming popularity at recent conferences, we will work to continue to rotate new colors into the product mix.
New Designs. “Saints and Popes Quotes” themed t-shirt designs are nearly ready to be rolled out… they are simplistic in design and each featuring a quote from a saint. These too will feature new colors (heather brown for St. Padre Pio, heather red for St. Joan of Arc, etc.), and as we are playing with new themes and design ideas, we’ll post them on our Facebook page for comment, suggestions and sharing. We eagerly invite you to weigh in and inspire us!
Discounts and more! You’ll also find a new clean look and feel with user friendly navigation, and larger, more vivid product photos. Additionally, we are excited to be able to offer our customers promotional coupon codes (this is going to be fun)!! Announcements will be posted on Social Media channels and at special events, so be sure to Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram for the latest news, updates, conference schedule, design sneak previews, discounts and more!
Thank you for your support of our small Catholic business over the years, through your word or mouth, purchases and through prayer. We have felt all the blessings and look forward to what the new year brings. We hope you’ll stay with us.
