A Very Sad Day

Hey everyone,

Today is a very sad day. I accidentally washed my notebook that held months of story writing. RIP stories. 😦



Be Sealed with the Holy Spirit

In the Catholic church children are baptized as babies through the will of their parents and they receive the Holy Spirit. In Confirmation which usually takes place in 8th grade is when the teen decides for his or herself to make their faith their own and receive a greater infilling of the Holy Spirit when the chrism is used to seal the Holy Spirit at the hands of the bishop. 

This time it was my youngest brother Sean’s turn. 🙂 As his godmother I was super stoked to be asked to be his Sponsor for Confirmation and had to make things super special awesome for this momentous day. 😀


Gift 1: A shield shaped plaque with a verse from Ephesians


Gift 2: A cherry stained crucifix


A rose boutonierre made by myself


Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting that I made with chocolate doves that I molded


Decorated his confirmation cake. Mom made the cake. 🙂

My brother’s confirmation is just around the corner so in preparation for the big day, I found an easy tutorial on how to make a boutonniere. 🙂 


On the day of I will be using a red flower, but for my practice run today I utilized items that I already had on hand: a yellow carnation and a Japanese Maple leaf for filler. Pretty stoked about how this one turned out, and can’t wait to make another!

Thanks for reading!
