Trendy Traditions Catholic Christian Keepsakes {Review & Giveaway}


A married mother of four, turned business woman and rosary designer extraordinaire.

I am so thrilled to introduce Trendy Traditions, a unique shop, with amazingly beautiful Catholic gifts and keepsakes created by the brilliant mind of Melanie!


A little more about Trendy Traditions 
Trendy Traditions is an online shop specializing in Catholic gifts and keepsakes. Melanie loves to make personalized handmade rosaries and she hand makes each one in her little shop. The idea for Trendy Traditions was born in prayer during the month of the rosary, October 2009. For quite some time, Melanie had been praying about the future of her growing family and the practical issues associated with being a wife, mother to four children, returning to work full-time after maternity leave, nursing a newborn, and maintaining her spiritual life in the mix of it all. God's response to her prayer was to inspire her business.  

As she began to pray the rosary more often, she had a hard time finding a rosary that didn't look like the one her grandmother would have used 50 years ago. Melanie combined the ideas of trendy styling along with the sacred tradition she holds so near and dear to her heart.

It is Melanie's sincere hope that she can share the peace she has experienced with others through the products she makes and sells online at Trendy Traditions

Melanie was so kind to create this stunning and unique rosary for my daughter's first communion. 

  {beautifully gift wrapped}

I contacted Melanie directly and mentioned what I was looking for in a rosary. That same day, she responded with some wonderful suggestions. I wanted a rosary that was personalized, special and something my daughter could cherish for the rest of her life.  The detail and quality of each lovingly made piece is spectacular!

Melanie has created a trendy take on an old tradition... here are some of my other favorites... they are gorgeous, aren't they...?

 


Trendy Traditions Catholic gifts and keepsakes are even more beautiful and precious in person. Melanie's craftsmanship is incredible. She is constantly designing... so keep an eye on her etsy site for new creations!  If you are looking for a rosary that is personal and special, stop by Trendy Traditions, you won't be disappointed!
