New Years Eve by the Hour

So here's a quick and easy party idea for a fun-filled New Years Eve...(this is especially good for kids, but can be tailored for an adult party as well).

Choose 3-5 age-appropriate activities and gather all the supplies needed.  Each activity with supplies goes into a brown paper sack.  Then label each bag with a time to open - for example, "Open at 7 pm", "Open at 8 pm" etc.  So each hour of the night the kids have something to do!  Fun things could include a favorite board game, making cookies, cutting out your own confetti, dressing up and taking pictures, art projects, making a snowman, having a treasure hunt, watching a movie - and then of course, the last one would be party poppers, horns, hats and for sure the camera!  

This is fun because it gives kids something to do all night long, and you can be creative in what you plan!  

Happy New Year!

Baby Gift Wrap



We just got the CUTEST baby gift wrap in!  All of it is themed in pink/brown, or blue/brown - so hip!  Most all of it works as wrap for any occasion - not just baby.  There is matching tissue paper, ribbon, bags, wrap, and bows!  This is a scrapbook company that has started a giftwrap line - which is awesome 'cause you get all those fun prints!  Now don't you think half the fun of giving a gift is the wrapping?  It definitely makes the gift about 15 times better if it looks nice when you give it!  





I know, I know... these pictures are a little late!  They are from Halloween - but we are new to this blogging thing, and I couldn't help but post some pics of the girls that work for us!

Visiting Teaching Gifts



This is a picture of our December Visiting Teaching Handout. It includes a darling snowflake magnet, a York Peppermint Patty, an excerpt of the message from the Ensign - all packaged together to make such a cute gift for your visiting teaching sisters. This month's price is $3.25.

If you haven't ever given something like this before - you should try it! These are so nice to either just drop off when you have sisters that are hard to catch, or also for inactive sisters. It gives them something to open where they can read a spiritual message at their leisure.

We have these each month and they are always darling! They usually are priced at $2.25...December's has a little extra in it so they are more. Hope you like them!
