It's That Time Again...

For a new visiting teaching message: For the October 2010 Visiting Teaching Message, the LDS church put out the following statement:   "The October 2010  Liahona  and  Ensign  will be a special issue focusing entirely on temples.  The issue will not contain a specific First Presidency Message or Visiting Teaching Message.   Home and visiting teachers are encouraged to prayerfully select their message  from the contents of this special issue." Since each sister is supposed to prayerfully select a message about the temple, we decided to create a Halloween gift to give along with your own personal prepared message.  The tag on the outside reads, " The Temple - Getting there's a TRICK, but being there's a TREAT !"  Isn't it so true?   (See more pictures here). Inside this little (4"x4"x4") black pinstripe box is a Reese's peanut butter pumpkin (who can resist?) wrapped with a lovely b/w damask piece of tissue, and a creative message

Dance/Date Ideas: How to Ask & Answer

Since we named our store after our local high school Pioneers, we try hard to stock up on the Purple & White supplies (as well as blue for Westlake, red for American Fork) - and part of that "support" is helping the local kids come up with creative/unique ideas to ask and answer for dances at school.  So we have a binder full of ideas for them, and recently made a small section of items that they can actually pick up all ready to go and ask or answer that special someone!  Here are just a couple of the ideas: A can (or more) with the words "I CAN" typed out on cardstock with googly eyes glued on. We also have little eyeball balloons that would be fun to blow up and hang all over someone's room! Box of Honeycomb cereal with "Honeycomb your hair and come to the dance with me!" Also cute to add an oversized comb or a package of combs with this one. And the best saved for last... "I'll be BRIEF, will you go to the dance with me?" An

Favorite Things Party

So my daughter just turned two!  While thinking of what to do for her birthday party I had two requirements:  easy & inexpensive!  For awhile, I was set on going to a local splash park and just letting the kids play... but realized that Anna wouldn't actually really love that!  Which then made me start to brainstorm... "What are Anna's favorite things?"  I got thinking about how she loves to paint her fingernails, she loves our dogs, she loves to ride our horses, and she loves to color/paint.  The song from "The Sound of Music" kept coming to mind - "These are a few of my favorite things..."  and I added... "Puppies & Ponies & Polish & Painting!"  Every time I read her invite I actually sing it in my mind! I know, cheesy!  But that's just me. So I had it!  I would throw her a "favorite things" party.  I ordered some cute Puppy themed cupcake toppers, set up a nail painting station, had pony rides, and let a
