General Conference Goodies

photos i modged podged to blocks I cut/painted

Found this printable online and made one

found above printable of apostles online and I put them on circles instead of the flashcards they were intended to be. Perfect for my toddler.

laminated and hole punched these older church pictures. Used ribbon and just wrapped one end with scotch tape. Cheap lacing cards!

Paint Sample Color Books

These are two sided pages I made from free paint samples at Home Depot. Laminated the pages & added a ring. Got the idea from my mom- she made me one first. Perfect party favor for our rainbow themed birthday party last week! Plus- FREE! (well, like 17 cents)

More Crayon Rolls

These are 10x5. Used them as party favors. Yay for using leftover fabric! 8 crayons each.

Crayon Roll

Thanks to Skip to My Lou's tutorial, I made a crayon roll. I made it smaller so we would have less crayons to deal with. It's a 9 x 5 inch roll for 8 crayons instead of 16 1/2 x 5 inch roll that fits 16 crayons. Next time I will probably add another inch to add a little more fabric to roll. The ribbon I did was 15 inches. A little too small too. Still, I like the way it turned out.

Felt Flower Clips

My friend Amie came over and showed me how to make these felt flower clips! Mine was a little too big but I'm glad I know how to do them now.

File Folder Games


First try at a tutu. : ) Too long.

A Sunday Quiet Book

I thought I'd try my hand at creating a Sunday quiet book myself. This one is of people of The Book of Mormon. I chose that book of scripture since it was shortest. The Old Testament and New Testament will have a lot more pages to create! I used a $1 photo book from Walmart and used photoshop for the pages & covers! So fun and my little one loves it.

Lucky Thank You Note

I'm figuring out how to use photoshop, which I love. Here's a thank you note for our church's primary kids' teachers I made. So fun! I'm tag teaming with a friend and she is doing the hard part- making chocolate treats!

Flannel Board

I used a magnetic white board for this one. I glued the blue felt and border ribbon on the back. Now it's really a 3 in 1 activity- flannel stories, magnets, or dry erase coloring! With the help of my mom who was visiting we cut out a bunch of fabric and pictures to start us out.

Kid Sized Oven Mitts

I made an oven mitt during nap time. It was way, way too small. So I made another one. (When all else fails, follow the directions.) The tutorial online said to make the image fill up an 8 1/2 x 11 page. I thought since my daughter is smaller I should make it smaller than the normal "kid size." I was wrong. She couldn't even fit her hand through the opening!
At least the little one can fit on her Elmo's hand so she has a cooking buddy, right?

Family Faces Magnets

These magnets are of our family members' faces. This gives my daughter a chance to see their faces & learn their names since they live far away from us.

Grandpa's original magnet has been missing since I first made these. I just made him a new one and labeled the backs of all of them. I used Photoshop to resize & crop photos into 2.5 inch squares & cut them out, modge podged the pictures, labels, & magnet onto the old frozen juice lids. Done!

Princess Baby Quilt

This unfinished project I started 1 1/2 years ago. The butterfly art I did yesterday inspired me to finish something else. What was meant as a "first" blanket will still get a little wear time before my daughter outgrows it. I regret not finishing this sooner.

All I had to do was bind it- well, just the hand stitching on the back. Easy, just tedious. I used invisible thread to machine quilt the top that I learned about in a machine quilting class I took once upon a time.
