Thanksgiving Dinner Invitation

Back by popular demand, my "Wanted Poster" invitation for Thanksgiving Dinner. I have been asked about it so much lately, that I just decided to put it back up this year, though I changed the date to 2011. It makes a fun invitation for your guests, and sets a fun tone for your Thanksgiving Day celebration. Be sure to comment and let me know how you like it??? Enjoy! Katie G.

Be sure to drop by both of my blogs to get some great ideas, tips, freebies, printables, and much more!

Seed packet Gift/ template

I decided that instead of giving out thank you notes to the lovely friends of mine who remembered me on my birthday, I decided to design a template for a seed packed, and fill it up with seeds from my pretty yellow and orange flowers in my yard, and give it as a thank-you. They turned out darling and printed so very nicely. Very easy template, but be sure to score the lines around the packet where the folds go, as it looks so sharp and folds much nicer. I used glue runner tape as well. If I get a chance I will take a snapshot of the finished product before I give them out. On the back side, I left it plain so that you can add your own message, for a gift or in place of a thank you note, or for whatever reason you want to use it for. I also inserted it into a cellophane bag ( note card size ) and tied a yellow ribbon around it. VERY CUTE!!! Enjoy! Katie G.

LDS General Conference

I loved the announcement from President Monson that the Provo Tabernacle that had recently burnd down other than the exterrior, would be rebuilt and would become a second temple in Provo, Utah. I don't know about you but when that was said, both my husband and I started crying. It was a great expereince! I found this darling vintage postcard that was of the Provo Tabernacle in days gone by.... enjoy! Katie

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.
