“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart;
it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love,
embracing both trial and joy.”
St. Thérèse of Lisieux
Thank you for visiting my website! I am still working on setting up an online store, but please contact me directly using the form below if you are interested in ordering one of my products or if you are interested in commissioning a custom holy card.
If you are interested in learning a little bit about me – my name is Emily and I’ve been making custom holy cards to commemorate sacraments such as baptism and confirmation for a number of years. I developed the ‘starter prayer ring’ when I taught third grade CCD as a way to help young ones learn their prayers. My goal is to make beautiful items using traditional artwork. A number of years ago in a keynote speech Bishop Robert Barron (then Father Barron) spoke about evangelization and his first recommendation was “lead with the beautiful.” In reference to the three transcendentals – the good, the true, and the beautiful – he said that in our post-modern culture the others are easily dismissed. But if you lead with the beautiful, the good and the true will follow. Under the patronage of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, I try to follow this as inspiration for everything I design. Thank you for visiting!
