I have been hand-crafting rosaries with God's guidance and inspiration since the Fall of 2003.
All rosaries and chaplets on this site, unless noted otherwise, are handmade by me, Robyn Stacey.
I am committed to making exclusive, beautiful, unique, meaningful, heirloom quality hand-crafted Catholic rosaries and chaplets.
In 2003, my little buddy, a Maine Coon mix cat named Gizmo "Gizzy" Todd, was diagnosed with cancer. I began to pray the rosary with him daily for either a miraculous healing or a peaceful passing.
During this time, I tried to locate a rosary for animals, but I could find nothing. My mom showed me how to make rosaries. Hence, I was inspired to make one and the St. Francis Paws 4 Critters Rosaries line began. Since then, I have made many "critter" rosaries for dog and cat lovers. I have also made one for bunnies and crocodiles.
Many folks have used these rosaries to pray...  Read More

St Valentine's Day

Feb. 14 -  Saint Valentine's Day 


I received this in an email, and I thought I would share it, as it was very interesting. I knew the story of St Valentine and the story behind the "X" in "Xmas", but the information toward the end regarding the "X", criss cross and signing by the "X" I did not know. 
In the 3rd century, Emperor Claudius II was faced with defending the Roman Empire from the invading Goths.

He believed men who were not married made better soldiers so he forced the military to ban traditional marriage.
He also forced the Senate to deify the former Emperor Gallienus, including him with the Roman gods to be worshiped.

Christmas Legends

With January 6th, the Epiphany, coming up, I thought I would share some of the Christmas legends behind some time honored traditional symbols of the Christmas season.

The Legend of the Candy Cane
According to legend there was a candy maker who wanted to invent a candy that was a witness to Christ.

First of all, he used a hard candy because Christ is the rock of ages. This hard candy was shaped so that it would resemble a “J” for Jesus or, turned upside down, a shepherd’s staff. He made it white to represent the purity of Christ.

Finally a red stripe was added to represent the blood Christ shed for the sins of the world, and three thinner red stripes for the stripes He received on our behalf when the Roman soldiers whipped Him. Sometimes a green stripe is added as a reminder that Jesus is a gift from God.

The flavor of the cane is...  Read More

The 12 Days of Christmas

The Christmas standard, “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, is to most a rambling of strange ‘gifts’, which tests our memory. However, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” had a more solemn intention with significance beyond the seemingly trite ‘gifts.’
The English had begun writing Christmas carols in the 15th century, but when the Puritans came to power they suppressed both Christmas and its carols. After Christmas was restored in England, festive songs praising the occasion were written, but the only legal church was the state church – Church of England. Between 1558, the year Queen Elizabeth I ascended the throne, and 1829, when George IV was king, Catholics in England were forbidden from any practice of their faith by law – public and private. It was, at that time, illegal to be Catholic punishable by imprisonment or execution.
