May Visiting Teaching Gift

The words of the Prophets give us our own personal CD:
{Celestial Directions!}

We have compiled some  
wonderful quotes from the 
April General Conference,
slipped the card into a CD cover,
(inked the edges)
added some bright spring flowers,
maybe a button or two...
some chocolate,

And there you go!
A truly unique gift to give
to your sisters this month.

If you only splurge once in awhile
on a gift for them...

This is one month you won't want to miss.


 




Buy them in-store or online today!

Aren't you sick of making cookies for your husband??

Happy May!

Did You Hear The Buzz???

Our dear weatherman says Spring just might finally be here!  (Hooray!)  And what better way to spend those little ones' Spring birthdays than with a fun bug party.  Check out this super cute bug party!  And then don't forget to come into the store so we can help you with the candy, tags, invitations, butterfly nets, balloons, tissue balls, goody bags, cellophane, piƱatas, tableware, gummy worms...the whole works!  Don't forget, we can ship any of our makings to you also.


We made these darling classroom treats for cute little Isabel Ladybug's birthday. 

Isn't this the cutest balloon ever?  We also make butterflies, dragonflies, and spiders that would spice up any bug party!

Not sure what to do at your party?  How about a good game of buzz buzz sting (duck, duck, goose), go on a bug treasure hunt, decorate bug cupcakes, have an ugly bug fashion show, face paint, make bug catchers, or have a coloring contest!  You're little spring party goers are sure to have a blast!  Not enough?  Be sure to ask one of our fabulous clerks for more ideas!  We are happy to help!

Visiting Teaching Appointment Anyone?

Just wondering if you've scheduled your appointments this month yet... Me?  Nope!  I got a new partner and new ladies and I just haven't gotten into the swing of things yet.  But I will!!  And I will be bringing each one of them one of these cute little gifts...


The message from the Ensign is titled, "The Purpose of Relief Society."  
We have included the full message printed on a pastel yellow cardstock (folded inside)... along with a yummy Easter chocolate treat.  



The tag simply says, "Relief Society" and then on the edges, it reads, "eggstra ordinary"  repeated all around.  Because it is, right!?  There are so many aspects about the Relief Society as an organization that make it special.  

The sheer polka dot bags vary in color as well as the treats... and you can't go wrong with the treats that are included!  Cadbury Mini Eggs, Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs, or Snickers Eggs.  
Yummm.....

Hope you have a month full of fun & happy visits!  

Find the VT gifts in our store in Lehi, 
at Shaybee's in Springville,
at Wildflowerz in Kamas,

Spring Decoration...

Even though it SNOWED here in Utah this weekend... I am still hoping/wishing/praying for some nice SPRING weather!  So to get me in the mood... I printed this Spring Subway Art out this weekend, put it in my shabby white frame, added some greenery around it, and I now have a little corner of spring in my house!

LDS General Conference Ideas

We've had a lot of you ask if we have any ideas to keep your kids interested {busy} during General Conference this weekend... so we've compiled a few ideas from around the blog world for you.  

#1 - CONFERENCE TREAT BUCKETS - by Brown Paper Packages


Basically the idea is to get some buckets, label them with words you want your kids to listen for, and let them pick a treat when they hear that word spoken in one of the talks!  Awesome, huh?

Don't have time or want to spend money on buckets and vinyl?  
Use mason jars and print out words from your computer. (be cute & colorful to see the candies)
Have your kids help you color your labels and tape them on!
Also, my little ones can't read yet - so I will probably find pictures of the temple, the scriptures, etc. for our treat buckets!  (If time permits, I will post the pictures I find so you can use them too!)

#2 - SET UP YOUR TENTS!  


Just as the people gathered to hear King Benjamin...
Think of how much fun little ones would have listening to the Prophet in their very own tent.
Whether you make one out of blankets and chairs, or you have a real tent to set up - 
Deck it out with pillows, notepads, snacks, etc. and let the kiddos play make believe!

#3-  DOWNLOAD A CONFERENCE PACKET

We love Sugardoodle.net!  They make it so easy to plan lessons, activities and so much more.  Click on the links below to download a packet specific for the ages of your kids.  Or check out their entire collection of conference ideas here.
