I have been emailed by a reader who said that this link doesn't work.  It works for me so I don't know what to change BUT, if it doesn't work for you, just go to

Don't you just love printables?

Don't you just love printables and especially those that are for free???

I have been looking for some cute seed packet printables, and found some, but I also found some really cute other kinds of printables that I thought I would pass on to you.

This link has some really cute freebie vintage easter bunny printables, Santa and ancestor printables. They have more printables that they sell as well but there are many freebies on this site. Go to
These are out of season now, but they are very cute Bottle Cap Santa images and can be found at and the tutorial of how to make them is at This next link is a tutorial of how to make their pillow boxes

These are really cute free downloadable patterns of some cut things to make located at:

Free Easter Craft projects This is the parent site that has tons of all different kinds of project, crafts and craft paterns for free. I don't really like alot of this stuff, but it gives you ideas of basic things to make and then you can doll them up the way you like.

Blank Printable seed packet template by they way... these seed packets can be used for other things like little tiny treats for kids, or a treat envelope for your Visiting teaching ladies, or you can put in things like paper clips, small office supplies, or even it could be the packaging for your own gift tags or whatever else you want it to be. This is a good basic pattern and you can take it and doll it up with whatever you like. I think it would be darling printed on some scrapbook paper, and cut out, and once it is folded up, it looks like a mini gift box. Add a bow and it is soooo cute!

More seed packets

Now this site has some of the cutest ideas so take some time and just see what they have for you. You will not be disapointed. It is the same one as the above seed packet template, but it has so many more cute things to print off for free

This is all I have time to search for right now, but I will be back!!!! Love, Katie G.

Handout - March 2010 Visiting Teaching Message - "Strengthening Faith in God the Father and Jesus Christ through Personal Scripture Study"

I thought about designing up a great looking Scripture chart, but why, when there were already some really great ones already made and ready to be printed off. Thanks to all who contributed as these could really get us motivated to read daily our scriptures!

For a great Book of Mormon reading chart the size of a bookmark, go to

For a great Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price bookmark size reading chart go to

New Testament chart...

Old Testament chart ( 3 per page) Seminary version

Old Testament (2 per page) Once you have copied the first page, turn over the paper and print the second half on the back side.

Want to read the scriptures online? Go to: If you want to read them in numerous other languages, got to this same link and on the right side of the page where it says "English" click on that and a drop down menu will appear of other languages you can read them in. REALLY NEAT!!!!



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.
