Warming Wrap Tutorial

I have been looking for a tutorial for a long time on how to make a warming wrap... you know one of those wonderful things filled with rice, grain, herbs or whatever.... that you put in the microwave to heat up and put on a part of you that is hurting.  Well I just happened on one.  It would make a great gift for your sister you Visit teach for when they are ill or recovering from a surgery. This one could be made in different fabrics, but it was obviously made for a man, to look a bit more masculine.  BUT... you could pick a cute fabric and make one that fits your personality.  If you click on the title of this post, it will take you to the tutorial in a flash!  Enjoy!  Katie G.

I realize this post is a bit random, but I have also been looking for a tutorial on how to make freezer paper stencils.  Family reunions are coming up in the Spring - Summer months and how fun would it be to have matching family shirts?  If you go to a store to buy them or have them printed, it is going to be pretty costly, but if you just buy a t shirt and then do your own stenciling, it would sure save a lot of money as well as you can be as original as you want with your design.  Her is the link to the video tutorial  This gal is LDS, as I could tell because she also has a freebie printable for the YW theme which is the 13th article of faith, and it is a framable image that she offers for free as well.  She is very talented and has great ideas.  enjoy!  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.
