Simple, Thoughtful and easy!!!

Recouperating from my surgery, I was reminded of a nice gift that my husband gave me once, just to pamper me. He had purchased a heatable and scented heating bag, that fit around my shoulders. I just put it in the microwace for a couple of minutes and then put it on my shoulders, or on my head to help with a headache or wherever I needed some quick warmth. I loved it and use it over and over. I was thinking that it could be used for the sisters that you Visit teach, to add a touch of "Warmth" to their lives during these cold winter months.

I searched the internet for directions to make one, and found it at  and other directions and photo at
I would find some cute fabric to make it out of and a great place to find some is at Hobbie Lobby if you have one close to you and always get 30% off their already low priced darling fabrics.... or go online to to at and look up some of the darling Michael Miller prints, as shown above. You won't need much fabric to make one, but take advantage of their free shipping policy if you buy $35 or more, or double up with others who want to order too and make it worth the order. (there are all kinds of online fabric stores to choose from)

Anyway follow the directions and make a thoughtful little gift or when you know she is ill you could take it to her then to let her know that you are thinking of her and sending "warm wishes" her way. Great idea huh? I think ao! Love, Katie G

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.
