Treat Tuesday #30 – Warm Fuzzies Jar Card

Today’s Treat comes from my favorite talk from this years 179th Semiannual General Conference. It was given by our Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson and it’s called, “What Have I Done for Someone Today?” I just loved it!! It really touched my soul. Reminds me to go back to the basics of serving others and I especially loved the “warm fuzzies” given by the Primary kids. How cute!!! We totally need to have a “warm fuzzy” jar here at home. I know the early bird and super prepared Visiting Teachers …

Treat Tuesday #29 – Pumpkin Recipe Cards

Today’s Treat (which was supposed to be Tuesday’s treat, LOL) was forwarded to me by my MIL (mother-in-law), Judy. They are super fun Recipe Cards w/ recipes in the shape of Pumpkins! She said she was going to print them and give them to the sisters she Visit Teaches and thought that it would be cute for other sisters as well. I TOTALLY agree! Seems like they come from Kate’s Kitchen, but Kate didn’t include her last name, so I couldn’t ask Kate’s permission, my MIL said to share. So, …

Treat Tuesday #28 – Paper Pumpkin

Today’s Treat was something I should have thought of sooner, cause it’s too cute. I saw it on a few children’s websites (would have saved some time if they would have had templates). It still seemed simple enough for me to make and for you to print, so I decided it was definitely something worth designing. I think this is the one I’m going to use. I included several excerpts of Pres. Hinckley’s quote from October’s Message on each of the strips of paper which make up the Paper Pumpkin. …

Treat Tuesday #27 – Watering Can

Today’s Treat is designed and provided by Chris Christensen from St. George, UT. Thanks Chris!!! She designed these fun Visiting Teaching Tags which go along with October’s Message. She has even visited all of her sisters already. She’s so on top of things! She, plus all of you early birds, are my shining examples. I just love that you ladies are so dedicated to being “the first” instruments in the Lord’s hands. I want to be like all of you when I grow up. :)

Our Rising Generation

Date Note: This is a previous post which was made to go along with the Oct, 2009 VT message, however it has a similar topic so we decided to add it here in the event that you would like it.

Seems like I have been thinking about what to design for this month’s Enhancer, for a while now. I read the October Visiting Teaching Message a week before October even started, so that I could get something up before the 1st. I’m a perfectionist and therefore have to wait for the …
