February Visiting Teaching Message

A simple brown paper sack turns into a gift your sister will LOVE this month... The title of the message along with the phrase  "LOVE the counsel and take it to heart"  shows on the outside of this simple brown paper sack.  Inside is a 4"x5" card with the full message from the Ensign... and of course, a sweet treat of  gummy hearts  to tie it all together.   We have added a quote (not included in the Ensign message) by Pres. Hinckley that states, "Fix it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without."   This quote is a great way to remember what this month's message is all about.  We hope this gift will inspire sisters everywhere to read the message and truly  take it to heart.

Pop Rocks - All you need to Know

I came upon some random "history" the other day, and thought it would be fun to share - so here goes! "In 1956, William Mitchell, a General Foods chemist, was looking for a way to make instant carbonated soda pop by trapping carbon dioxide in hard candy tablets.  One afternoon he popped some nuggets he was experimenting with into his mouth...and felt them pop.  No one at General Foods could think of a use for the substance, so it was shelved for almost 20 years.  But in 1975 it was introduced as Pop Rocks - and became the hottest selling candy in history.  Between 1975 and 1980, more than 500 million packets were sold." So here are a few ideas that YOU can do with Pop Rocks: Grab one or more packages and stash in your kid's backbacks, husband/boyfriend/girlfriend's vehicle... Use as a party favor - one for each guest... Leave as a surprise on the table when your kids come home from school. Give as a good luck/congrats token to a friend. Some (n

January Visiting Teaching Gifts

Are here! The message title from the Ensign is "Becoming Self-Reliant." We want to MOTIVATE the recipient to "Ring in the New You!" by following the counsel given in the message... So we highlighted a few of the key points in a brightly colored block pattern - Gain knowledge & education, take responsibility, be emotionally, physically, and spiritually STRONG, and M anage M oney wisely. (The treat this month is a pack of M&M' s). This 5x7 glossy card has the message from the Ensign in its entirety printed on the back for the sisters to read. This would easily turn into a nice bookmark. To help start out the New Year the right way, we are helping you " M anage your M oney wisely" by offering these VT gifts at the low cost of $2.50! Visit our webpage at to buy them online, or better yet - come by our store!
