G is for GIVEAWAY.

St. Catherine of Siena
St. Theresa of Avila
St. Jude
St. Philomena

This is sort of a Giveaway/revealing my secret newly discovered hobby....

I would mostly call it saint doll making. but not if you have a little boy. then I guess they could be saint action figures or statues or something.

I started on this little hobby after I got off facebook to make them for the girlies so they would stop breaking all religious objects at our house.

Then I made a few for friends. And worked on which paints were safe for eating and what to finish them with and then viola! a completely edible saint doll was born. Well...finished with shellac. And guess what else is finished with shellac? Jelly Bellies. candy corn. and most of your shiny pill medicine. interesting business.

I'm just kidding about the eating part. Butttt if it happens your kid will live happily.

And now I have made over 100 saint dolls according to my calculations... almost all have been adopted into happy homes.

So. Back to the f u n.

Here is what you will win...a Nativity for your home. whichever one below you like betta. And please keep in mind that baby Jesus is a choking hazard. Sorry. about. that. And also keep in mind that your Mary and Joseph will not look exactly like the pictures but definitely with familial resemblance.

And I might add some more Nativity people if I am feeling generous.

All you have to do to enter is....

1)post a comment below of what you are hoping to give for Christmas to someone you love andddd

2)if you are not yet a follower friend, you should do that too.

I feel like St. Nicholas.  No more entries after 12:00PM/noon EST on N is for Nativity day aka next Tuesday and I will draw the winner that night. 


  1. Those are so cute! I'm excited this year to be making a baby doll for Elise's first Christmas gift!

  2. I just gave my kids all of their gifts, but I am hoping to find a nice cable knit green sweater for Mike. I love these Mo!!!

  3. Somehow I haven't seen these yet and they are adorable! I hope I win:) We, I mean Santa, is giving Maggie a "pretend puppy" for Christmas. The only thing she kept asking for after a real puppy.

  4. oh wow. SUPER impressed!!! I love that you made Jude and Philomena...two of my faves. Still working on Simon to let me name a girl far ... no way.

    I have given ZERO thought to gifts. Simon did mention he wanted a quality ice scraper....fancy pantsy around here.

    I am hoping to get Dev a new suit for Christmas, boy does he need and deserve one.

  6. I love the one's you made for our kids (Malissa had you make them for us) - the kids love them! Really great!

  7. SO SO Cute! Love your hobby! Hoping some of your craftiness rubs off on me! So for Gifts for Malia Santa is bringing her a digital camera...that way she can be our family photographer! Happy Solemnity!

  8. I may be too late, but this is so darn cute, I can't stand it. My little family doesn't have a real nativity yet, and I really appreciate that yours is kid friendly and has so much love! I can't wait to give my baby boy and my nephew their gits. Our mutual friend, Grace told me about your blog and I love it.

  9. I endorse this product!!! My baby loves his saint doll and it has held up to much banging, biting, and dropping! I'm giving little Dominic books, balls, a xylophone, and I don't know what else yet...I guess I had better start shopping soon!

  10. Thérèse and Lilli need this! I got my older sister a tree cleaner. She is going to love it!

  11. Maureen!! These are darling! What a cool hobby. hmmm, so for Christmas this year, I'm super excited to give Gemma a St. Gemma doll made by my super talented friend Maureen! ;)
    But for reals, we're giving Gemma a Disney Princess kitchen set and it's so adorable. I can't wait to have her "cooking" with me in the kitchen!
