All I Need to Know about Life I Learned From a Snowman

My thought about the snowman picture would be to copy 4 per page which makes them about the size of a post card, then print out the typed verse. Roll up the verse in a scroll and tie it off with a cute ribbon and attach one of the Snowman postcards to the ribbon. On the backside of the postcard you could sign your names as visiting Teachers and also give your phone numbers.
The cute Snowman and snowflakes and such come from a very cute digital scrapbooking kit called "Cold winter days, designed by Silva.

I thought this would be something wintery and fun, and just for fun as it really doesn't have anything to do with a V.T. Message. It was sent to me and I liked it and added to it as well with my own thoughts about the subject. I have tried to find an author of the original content, but have had no success, so just enjoy this cute handout for what it is, and thanks to whomever was so clever.

Do you keep an archive of your posts so I can check out earlier projects? I've seen both your fantastic blogs and just am wondering if I can grab the stuff I already missed...?

Not trying to be greedy, just loving everything you've done!

Have you ever done VT business card (or calling card) artwork? Sorry - just wondering as I'm supposed to do that myself for our VT conference on the 31st!

Thanks again so much for all the great ideas and the beautiful artwork! I can't even imagine how you do it!

I love this snowman idea! Thanks!

You know what they say about old friends and antiques? They grow more valuable with time.

Glad that you dropped by my blog!

This blog and it's contents go hand in hand with my Visiting Teaching Tips and handouts blog found at If you by accident get to this blog first, make sure to go back to the other one and see all that there is for you there. This is sort of my overflow or stroage blog because I can't keep everything there, so I add my creations to this storage unit and that is my Visiting Teaching Surprise for you. Sometimes however, I do put in things that I think you would enjoy even if they aren't specifically related to Visiting Teaching, but my vision in life is that if I take all the time to make things, I may as well share them and get more use out of them. Sorta like hand me downs but brand new "Down loads". I hope you enjoy these freebies. Drop me a note to say hello in the comments under the downloads posts.
