Teaching gift

Happy Friday everyone!!! Okay, who else is so happy that today is Friday??? I am especially happy about today. For one, almost all my stress is about to go away. There isn't a whole lot more I can do about everything that I had planned, so whether it gets done or not is okay with me at this point.

For another thing, my hubby is home from work today. With everything we had to do with week he took a day off so we can make sure it all gets done. Who doesn't love a 3 day weekend?

Tonight is my oldest son's first T-ball opening ceremony. My sister and her family are coming with my Grandmother to share in his excitement. I do need to ask you all one favor though. The clouds are hanging around and there is a threat of rain so if you don't mind joining me in praying that the rain either holds off until after the ceremony tonight or that it doesn't come at all, it would be greatly appreciated.

Plus, tomorrow we celebrate my Grandmother's 91st birthday tomorrow. You know I will be bringing my camera so I will definitely be sharing pictures here on Monday. We are also celebrating Easter at my sister's house tomorrow as well. So that means lots and lots of pictures to share on Monday. That also means I might not have anything to share with you crafty-wise. Oh, yes I will. I will show you the baskets I made for my boys for Easter.

Okay onto today's project. I am not sure if I mentioned this but I was asked to teach our Relief Society lesson in church on Sunday. I actually hold two callings right now, I think. I am the Relief Society teacher and the Primary Secretary for the little kiddos. I love both callings so I am excited about anything they ask me to do.
To go along with the lesson I am teaching I thought it would be neat to make bookmarks for all the ladies at church (since those are the ones I am teaching). I found a wonderful scripture at the back of the lesson that I think pretty much summed up what we were trying to get across. So, I typed it up in Word and printed it out and then made wonderful bookmarks for all the ladies. I am also going to give one to my Grandmother for her birthday along with a subscription to the church magazine since she isn't able to go to church anymore. I hope she is happy with it. It is just so hard to think of something for someone who isn't able to get out much. I have made cards and such before but you can only get excited about so many cards, right?

I do have to say, I am not sure about the deets though. I pretty much just started grabbing things since I had to make so many. In the picture there are 8 bookmarks but rest assured I have LOT more to make before Sunday. Good thing they actually come together fairly easy and all the stamping is done.

I do want to tell you though, the filigree stamp was stamped with a new stamp set I got at Michael's. I feel kinda bad getting it though. I feel like I am cheated PTI and Lisa Johnson out of some money. The set is by Autumn Leaves and is called Pretty Poppies. Of course I still want to get Lisa Johnson's Poppy set from PTI but this is nice until then.

Alright, I think that is it for now. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
