My New Calendar

Okay I know I need cute paper behind it but, this was my latest project. I love these dry erase calendars! Now, because I am super cheap and I didn't want to spend the 25-30 dollars to buy one so I made it! At Walmart I got this poster frame that cost 5.50. I took out the "glass" (It's actually plastic) and using Sharpe I drew on the inside so that nothing could rub off
over time. As far as the letters for the week days go, I used a dry erase marker to write it on the front so that I could just trace it from behind and didn't have to write backwards. So, right now there is just cardboard behind it until I can find some kind of cute wrapping paper or something to go behind it. I'll post it when I do.

Party Waters... This one's for you Julie

I love these. It is a tag that has a pocket in the front with one of those Crystal Light mix ins. Of course you can customize the tag for whatever theme you want. But I just like that it's a different option than soda and yet super festive still!

Chexie the object lesson

I made muddy buddys while reading this lesson....

I started with all the ingredients ready to go on the table.

"Chexie was a girl kinda like you. she was clean and pure. She had great friends and always chose the right.

When she got into high school, things started to slip."

(With each sin I poured more chocolate mixture into the bag filled with Chex)

" - She started to sleep through seminary
- then she started hanging out with the wrong people
- then she started swearing
- soon she was going to bad parties
- and that lead to drinking. "

(Now I shook the bag and covered her in chocolate so she all muddy with sin.)

"One night she drove home drunk and got into a car accident. that made her think. Where did I go wrong. Life used to be so much more simple. But does Heavenly Father still love me after all that I have done? The answer is YES! Through prayer and repentance she was truly forgiven."

(Now I poured the powdered sugar in the bag and shook it up. Initially I didn't put enough sugar in so it didn't turn white and one of the girls said... see how much harder it is to repent, it doesn't happen right away... i thought that was cute)

The savior said " though you sins be as scarlet ( or chocolate) they shall be as white as snow." Isaiah 1:18

Then I passed out little baggies that had that scripture on it and they filled up there bags. It rocked.
