The Good Shepherd Handout

I stumbled upon another idea for this month’s visiting teaching message. But first, recap! In case you missed my previous post (Sheep Bag Topper), the message for February 2014 was: Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, taught: “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety […]

Metal Bed Frame Padding

3 Jan

In the girls’ room, the mattress set is on a metal bed frame. Time and time again, mostly in the middle of the night, we’d hear Joee yelp as she stubbed her toe or cut her heel on the exposed metal leg. Even I have had my run ins with this evil contraption. Do you […]

Baby Ornament Photo Shoot

I’m walking through Jo Ann’s with my dad one day when we had this brilliant idea for Z-man’s Christmas photo shoot. Rather than stuffing a baby in a stocking or wrapping like a present, we wanted to make him an ornament! We quickly text my cousin Mallory over at Griffin Handspun to see if she […]
