I taught last Sunday for Relief Society. This month’s lesson was from the October 2009 Conference Ensign: What Have I Done For Someone Today? From President Thomas S. Monson. President Monson’s talk centered on service. He mentioned that last year someone asked him what his ideal birthday gift would be. His answer was for everyone to serve each other. Many youth and children across the world did just that. To report back they had “Warm Fuzzy” Jars that they filled with tiny fuzzy pom pom’s. (I think that’s what they are called…) So, to help with my handout and lesson – I made Warm Fuzzy Seed Packets – to plant the seeds of service in the sister’s hearts! I actually found this adorable idea from Linda at VisitingTeaching.Net. I loved the idea – I just wanted to recreate and re-size it for me! Here’s my version – feel free to use it for anything you need!
I also found this great poem that went perfectly with the lesson too. I got it from Sugardoodle.net:
First off, my mom is the Young Women’s Stake President and is helping to plan her stake girls camp. As part of their theme – Get a Grip (Hold to the Iron Rod) – they are giving the girls this charm. She bought them online from charmingldsgifts.com I put the rings on each charm. I also designed the ‘card’ that I stapled the charms to. There were over 300 charms total! It was actually really fun and I had a fun time designing everything. My mom is my best design client. 🙂
I can’t take any credit for this cute handout – my Mom made it! Thanks Mom! I thought she did such a cute job that it was worthy to be posted and shared! She attached it to a pumpkin for carving and had a cute little bag full of ‘goodies’ to go along with it (Hand Soap, Carving knife, A candle, a spoon, etc.) I just did a small little pumpkin with the handout. I think my sisters will really enjoy it!
Sorry I’ve been MIA with my new photography stuff! I have these super adorable papers for Halloween for you to enjoy! I loved the colors that really make this kit! And I love the name – Bubbling Cauldron – what speaks Halloween more than that? I don’t like spooky Halloween but it’s always fun to dress up and have an excuse to eat lots of candy – I don’t know if I’ll have any left for our neighborhood trick-or-treaters! Let me know what you think! I’m debating whether or not I should do some elements or just be happy with the papers. I have some great ideas for a Christmas/Holiday kit coming soon!
