Hello! I actually do not use beads at all in my rosaries (though it may be cool if I could get wooden beads for the "our fathers" and a wooden crucifix or cross.

I have found that I am terrible at bead-work, though, and therefore don't really want to buy a whole huge bundle of rosary supplies that would just end up a terrible mess of unusable rosaries.

The rosary I'm working on now is a purple and pink mixed shade. It's really cool. :)

Admittedly, I don't actually pray the rosary often. I do an Anglican version, with prayers from Julian of Norwich's "Revelations of Divine Love" associated with the different beads. It's similarly structured to the RC rosary, but with 33 beads in total, and separated into four weeks (i.e. 7 beads between the our fathers,) rather than decades. However, the idea has not quite caught on in the Episcopal church, and I would rather make a whole bunch of Rosaries to drop off at the local Catholic church that will be used, than make a ton of Anglican sets that will never be touched.

Though, that isn't to say I don't love the "Hail Mary". It's one of my favorite prayers and I occasionally find myself spontaneously saying it. ...I'm just a tad unfocused when it comes to the mysteries, and never quite understood how that bit's supposed to be done (do I actually announce them? Do I just think them? Do I...gah! I'll just make them and let other people do it!)

One of them even made it to Spain. :) I have a penpal there who is very Catholic. I love her to itty bitty little tiny pieces.

Ooookay, I'm rambling, when I ought to be brushing my teeth and going to bed! emoticon

Tomorrow will be awful for my diet - going food shopping with grandma and we always end up going out to eat. Actually, today was really good up until my parents decides we were going to get Wendy's for dinner!!! How do you convince your family fast food ISN'T the ANSWER?Of course, then I caved because I was totally in the mood for something greasy. And now I'm all like this: emoticon Oh, well. I'll go sleep it off! *zzzz*

Yes, you are certainly welcome here.

I am a convert since 1994. I have never prayed a rosary on my own. I am glad you find comfort in it. There is much information on the Catholic faith at www.catholic.com. If I can answer any questions, don't hesitate to private message me or post here.

God has given us grace. It is our job to follow the grace he has given us.

May peace be with you my friend,
Al

...but tend to feel more comfy around them than I do other Protestants. Can I hang out here?

I make rosaries as a hobby, and can't wait to get a job so that I can order more supplies. I'm running low. emoticon I make the all-twine ones, and I find that focusing on the knotting and spacing and correct numbers helps me to calm myself.

I'm very friendly and passionate about...well...anything I become passionate about!
