Sew together bag

Sew Together Bag

Today I have a fun Sew Together Bag that I want to show you!

I ordered this pattern several months ago and I have even had the fabric for awhile, but have just not taken the time to sew it together until now…but now I am kind of hooked on making these darling bags and have made two of them and have the supplies to make several more!  I am a little bit crazy like that!  :)

O come let us adore him

I love this time of year when we think more about others and we have gratitude in our hearts for all that we have been blessed with.  There is much to be thankful for this Christmas season.  Look around you today and see if there is someone you can help…even it is with a friendly smile, letting someone in line in front of you, paying it forward to someone, doing a service to someone in need, or a million other things that I am sure you can think of!  

Hope You Have a Great Weekend!

Is everyone getting their homes all decorated for the holidays and all of your shopping, crafting, and holiday baking done?  We had our Relief Society progressive dinner last night and so now I am getting ready for our Sinterklaas Party this weekend, after that I think I can get to my projects and my baking!  :)  Tis the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…or so I keep telling myself!  :)

Dec. 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout

Today I have the Dec. 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  We had all our family this year and we had a great day.  We ate, cleaned up the mess, and then I had all the kids bring up all the boxes with the Christmas decorations…then we went to the movie to see “The Good Dinosaur”, I thought that it was a darling movie and the kids seemed to love it.  They are still talking about it days later!  We then ate some more and tied 8 fleece blankets!! So it was a good day!   I got all of my Christmas put out, the next day, with the help of my 10 year old granddaughter!  She is getting great at decorating and I love having her help.  So now it is time to move into the next holiday and time for the Dec. 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout.

 I love the message for this month…it is perfect for December…“Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ:  Compassionate and Kind”Dec-2015-VT Continue reading
