My Valentine Post Card

I made these Valentines up to give to my friends who are coming to visit for a Valentine luncheon. I invited my old girlfriends from highschool and on one of the little cute
Valentine gifts I have for them, I have put these cards. By the wasy if you are wondering
they were made 2 per page and are not the normal size post cards. Anyway, I thought you might like to use them for the sisters that you Visit teach or some friends as well. Make sure to sign the backside of the card with all your contact information.

Enjoy yet another Katie G. creation and Happy Valentines Day!!!

Freebies, downloadables, Printables, etc.

I am always out looking for new ideas and once again, I have found some more really cute downloadable Valentine things as well as other things. When I find these, I can see such great applications such as tags for little gifts, or even tiny bookmarks, things for kids of those you Visit teach or for new baby gifts and so forth. Since it is Valentines, I have found some really cute Valentiney printables and ideas. There are some pretty talented people in this world and generous as well to let anyone download their creations. Ok here is the link list:

Note at door or door hanger templates

I designed this cute door hanger to help you with your Visiting Teaching efforts. I suggest that you cut out the hanger, leaving some black boarder, and then select the message that best fits your attempted visit. Also, if you have tried many times to contact your sister, and have had no success, then make sure to attach a copy of the monthly Visiting Teaching message to the door hanger so that she can get a chance to read it when she returns. Click on the jpeg image and you should be able to save it to your computer, size it if needed, and then print it off. This blank door hanger, would let you customize it. You could get a piece of Cute scrapbook paper, draw the template on the paper and then either use one of my ready made messages from the template above this one, or customize one including your own little message. I also thought that you could print up one of the quotes from the Message, and put glue it on the backside of this door hanger. Lots of choices and options for you! Enjoy! Katie G.

Do you ever have the problem of having a sister to Visit teach and you can never reach her? Do you have an appointment made and when you get to her door, she doesn't answer or isn't home? Do you have a sister who has said she would be willing to have Visiting teachers, just as long as they don't share a message when they come? I think most of us have had these issues and more in our roles as Visiting teachers.

I have experienced this very thing lately as my Visiting Teaching partner and I have tried to get an appointment with a woman who doesn't want a message but says we can come by for a visit. The problem is that she won't pick up the phone when we call and her phone won't let us leave a message. Our only choice is to drop by her home and hopefully catch her for a brief visit. This past month, I have to say that we didn't get catch her home, and she probably doesn't even know that we tried to see her. So to not let that happen ever a gain, I have decided to make a little door tag to hang on her door, just to let her know that we dropped by and were thinking of her. 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.
