personal-feast-boardI made a new type of BINGO board for General Conference and we tried it out during this Sunday Morning Session.

IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!

It was such an incredible experience that I am changing the board and putting 5 different letters at the top in place of the B-I-N-G-O. I am hereby calling this General Conference F-E-A-S-T! (more…)

Make Conference BINGO a spiritual FEAST!

I can’t believe I forgot to post this! I actually made this after Conference in April but wanted to post it closer to this Conference, but…. Well, let’s just say I completely forgot I hadn’t posted it yet! LOL

Anyway, this is my new invention. Actually there’s nothing new about BINGO or doing BINGO during General Conference, but this was a new way to approach it. (more…)

I had an idea that I wanted to play with – it’s still in process – but as I worked on it I ended up creating a BINGO board template. This is a super simple template – no bells or whistles. I think it turned out pretty cute for an intentionally VERY basic template to work with. There is space at the top to put a topic or name, then the squares can be filled in on a computer or doodle your cutest doodles by hand. Or you can try what I am excited to try.

I had decided to give up on doing anything with my Conference Train for this April Conference. Sometimes even good things have to get set aside for better and best things! And really, that’s OK! Then the unthinkable happened – my kids wanted to watch an uplifting movie that they have been wanting to see for a while, but we haven’t had a chance to see together after the afternoon session was over today. So… Magically I found myself with OVER an HOUR of time that I could sit with my kids and enjoy time together while they did something lifting to them and I could mess with my trains!!! Magical appearances of open time just NEVER happens it seems, so I did not look the gift horse in the mouth, but instead I grabbed my computer and began playing with choochoos! I am SOOOOO excited!!!! Plus, I finally made a caboose!!! Anyway, I simply can’t wait until October to share them with you, so here they are! (more…)

Cover Image April 2016Better now than Saturday morning! I had hoped to finish this up before now, but Thursday is better than JUST barely before Conference starts at 10:00am (MST) this weekend. Right? Anyway, here is an updated version of the General Conference Flower Garden that I made before. I have added our 3 new Apostles, changed Elder Nelson’s page to reflect his new position as President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, added in blank pages for Seventies or other men who speak, AND finally added a page for the sisters who speak!

I am LOVING my new calling and it is likely to direct some of what gets posted on here for the time being. Though, since I haven’t been posting anything lately, I suppose any excuse to take the time to post is a wonderful thing. πŸ˜‰ Actually, I have simply had to make some choices to find better balance in my life and pretty much ignoring social media and this blog have been requirements to attempt to reach that balance point. I have several things that I intend to do over the next while on my blog, but it will not be coming fast or super frequent. But, it is more important for me to keep my real life as functional as possible than to keep my blog supplied with new posts and material. I hope it is worth it for others to still keep my blog active even though I’m not updating it tons, and if not, at least it is an outlet for me when I need it.

Anyway, enough of that rambling. (more…)

20 FLRFYI am SOOO excited about these!!!

We don’t pay our kids an “allowance” ’round here. They have lots of jobs they can do to earn money and I post extra ones on our job board when there are special things they can do. But generally helping in our family is something that is expected without needing to be paid for it. It’s how I was raised and is something I wanted to continue with my kids because I feel like it helped me understand the need to help and to do it just because I love my family, not because I am getting paid for it.

While I was struggling to survive motherhood, nursing a baby, entrepreneurship, and going to school this past semester, our house was COMPLETELY falling into a pit of ridiculous messiness and simply becoming filthy dirty. Yes – I said FILTHY DIRTY. I mean, ewwwwww kind of dirty! We decided it was time for the kids to step up a bit (more…)
