The Catholic Etsy Artist's Guild

In that meandering way of internet links, I randomly happened upon the knowledge that there is a guild of Catholic artists on Etsy. Of course, I had to start poking around and found that if you type "teamcatholic" in the search bar at etsy.com you'll get 26 pages of items hand made by Catholic artisans. How fun!

Spend some time looking around yourself, but below are a few items I really liked:

Lepanto stationery by Anchor Greetings! (Be sure to look at the inside and back cover images - it's pretty much the poster child of POD!)
They also have some beautiful Christmas cards (look for the Fulton Sheen quote) and at just over $1 per card, they're a great price!


This sturdy Nativity playset by St. Luke's Brush all slides into the box for easy storage.
They also have a Guadalupe playset and a pretty darned cute Saint Nicholas doll.


These dolls by Saint Anne's Pixies are filled with details! Note Saint Mary Magdalene here contemplating her own sinfulness (her tear of repentance and the traditional skull).


(with a special note that the third one is rose and not pink J)
They have a number of wonderful items in their store!

If you're not familiar with Etsy, you may want to start here.
