Easter Video

Happy Easter Everyone!

 I hope that you are enjoying this glorious Easter day!  I hope that you  will take a minute to watch this Easter video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  It is a beautiful video that tells the spiritual Easter Story.

It is wonderful to know that when we have trials and problems…He is there.  When we are happy and rejoicing…He is there.  And anytime in between…He is there.  All we have to do is reach out…He is there!

I hope that you all have a  blessed Easter and that you will find peace in your hearts and in your homes!

Thanks for Visiting!

McKinly's Baptism Quilt

Girl Baptism Quilt

One of our granddaughter’s was baptized this last weekend.  This was a special day for her.  In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints the children are baptized when they are 8 years old.

I have made it a tradition to make a quilt for each of the grandkids for their baptism.  It has always been a minky quilt with minky fabric on the front and the back!  They are so warm and cuddly!  I also have their name and the year and “choose the right” embroidered in one of the corners.

Thursday’s Thought-He Is Risen!


One of my favorite Easter pictures is the one with the resurrected Savior first appearing to Mary by the tomb.

I love the looks and expressions of disbelief yet believing!

The title of the painting is “Why Weepest Thou?” by Simon Dewey

You can see it here.

“He is not here: for he is risen,”

Matt.  28:6

Since Easter is this weekend I thought I would share this Easter thought  for today:

The saddest day…

and

The happiest day,

Were only 3 days apart!

Nov. 2012 Visiting Teaching Handout

Just a reminder to watch the KUTV Morning Show tomorrow

 I am scheduled to be on between 7:30 and 8:00 am!

I will be showing several different ways that you can use up all of that Halloween Candy

and I would love to have you join me!

Now on to our Visiting Teaching Post:

This month your message will come from one of the conference talks.  There are so many good ones, but I tend to gravitate to the ones on service.  (Maybe that means that I need to serve more?!)

So I chose the talk from Sister Burton on “First Observe, Then Serve”

Oct 2012 Visiting Teaching Handout.

The message this month is: “Honoring Our Covenants”  I chose to focus on the quote from Russell M. Nelson, I love his quote about when we realize who we are…  I also like that visiting teaching is an expression of our discipleship and a way to honor our covenants as we serve and strengthen one another.

Aug. 2012 Visiting Teaching Handout

The message this month is “Taking Action in Time of Need”  It tells us that as visiting teachers, one of our purposes is to help strengthen families and homes.  The sisters we visit should be able to say, “If I have problems, I know my visiting teachers will help without waiting to be asked.”

So I decided that “Visiting Teachers Can be the Cherry on Top”  would be the perfect thing to go along with this message, because we want our sisters to be able to say this about each of us! Continue reading

Ruffled Tree Skirt

One down and two more parties to go this week!  Last night we had a really fun party that has become a tradition in our ward (congregation).  The ladies get together for a progressive dinner.  We have been doing it for about 6 years.  I live in a cul-de-sac and so for the last couple of years we have done it all in our cul-de-sac, because then we can just walk from home to home.  It is so fun.  Everyone started at my house for the appetizers, then we walked across the road for a wonderful meal and then back across the street, to my friend, Susan’s,  for the best part of all…desserts!  It was a really fun evening and we had about 50 people there!

So needless to say, I was cleaning my house all day and getting the final touches on my decorating, before the party started.  One of the projects that I did was this cute ruffled tree skirt.  It was so fun and I completed it in a couple of hours!  It has NO SEWING, can you believe it!  It is all hot glued!  (I know me and the glue gun sometimes don’t get along, but I did not burn myself once this time!)

This little tree is in my bedroom and it goes perfectly with a bedspread that I made. 

I am so tickled with this tree skirt and I love all the ruffles!  (Imagine that!)  If you would like to try to make one of these go to Studio 5 for a great tutorial.  I used a small piece of dowel to stick my ruffles down with and that is why I did not get any hot glue burns, in the video, she uses some kind of a glove, that would work too, but I like the dowel, because then my hands were more free.

I will show you a couple of more projects that I did tomorrow, but for now it is off to do some shopping and to get ready for the next two parties! (But at least now my house is clean!)
