Easy LDS Earrings (CTR, YW, and RS)

LDS ear rings usually cost around $6.00 a pair if you buy them already assembled.  That adds up fast when you’d like to give ear rings as gifts to your whole presidency or a class. I’ve recently added do-it-yourself earring kits to my store here, and on Etsy, and you can make a pair of […]

Activity Days: Gratitude Door Service Project

I walked into church the other day and saw this door to the Bishop’s office and had to stop.  It had Activity Day girls written all over it (figuratively and literally)!  It’s an easy spin-off of the “Heart Attack” idea (click here for previous post) and the purpose was written right there.  The girls had […]Activity Days: Gratitude Door Service Project
