New E-Book 31 Days to Clean

Yep, I need this book. I am not one of those people who finds joy in cleaning my house. I am one of those people who rewards herself with various things just for doing a 5 minute quick pick up. My spring cleaning list has been on my refrigerator since March and NOTHING has been checked off! I need some motivation and I think this e-book 31 Days to Clean- Having a Martha House the Mary Way by Sarah Mae just might be it! It's available now for PDF download or Amazon Kindle (Only $4.99)! I can't wait to read it :o)

FREE Cricut Online Cake Classes Today & Tomorrow

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ProvoCraft for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you ever look at the cakes in the bakery display window and wish you could make something as beautiful as they do? Well, now you can!  This week, 3/30 and 3/31 Provo Craft is hosting FREE online cake decorating classes! Using the very new Cricut for cakes! (like the Cricut you love so much, but tasty!)  The classes are being taught by Jinger Adams a celebrity in the crafting world!

I wish I had the money and room for one of these in my house! I would love to make all kinds of pretty cakes to impress people with ;o) I love in the Cricut Cake Video how they put the words all over that wedding cake, gorgeous! Wouldn't that be great to do a "just because" cake with all kinds of words that describe the person you made it for? I love describing words, there are so many wonderful words that come to mind that could be used for all kinds of occasions! And this machine will cut them all out of fondant for you! So awesome! Too bad I am not a baker (I wish I was, especially with my kids birthdays coming up), but I am sure some of you are! So stop by Provo Craft and check out the FREE online cake classes :o)

Conference Trail Mix Treat

I did not write this, it was written by Heidi Baxter and I found it on Sugardoodle but I thought it was so great! So I printed it up to give to my Activity Day girl's this week with a little snack bag of it to munch on this weekend :o) Hopefully you can click on it and print it without any problems if you would like to :o)

We are also going to make Recycled Newspaper Pots from Cottage Hill and I am going to talk about how this weekend is the perfect time to plant a seed in your heart as you listen to the prophets words. And then of course we will plant a seed for them to take home and nurture :o)

And don't forget to check out other great ideas at our Conference Idea Linky Party!

Kids Conference Store & Linky Party

I am going to try something new next weekend to help my daughter focus on listening to the conference talks. On Saturday I am going to put a jar of pennies out and pick some keywords that come up often during conference for my daughter to listen for during the talks.

For each keyword (prophet, temple, sacrament, prayer, etc...) she recognizes she will get one penny. At the end of each session she will have the opportunity to buy items out of the Conference Store, or save her pennies to buy one big prize at the end of the day. I filled a basket with different items like: stickers, a scripture bookmark, a notebook,a scripture marking pen, a puzzle, bubbles, candy, playdoh, etc... This is the first year I am trying it but I really think she will be excited to listen and collect as many pennies as she can :o)

Also take a look at my Conference Countdown Candy Lei idea and check out all the great Conference Ideas on my Linky Party...

Go ahead and link your conference related crafts, recipes, and ideas. And please link back to me, I would greatly appreciate it :o) And that way other people can find all of our great ideas in one spot too :o)

Spring Wreath

I had a daffodil pop up and bloom in my yard this week. And according to the calendar, tomorrow is the first day of Spring! Oh, I can't wait for warmer weather! And to celebrate Spring, I made a new wreath. I was wandering around Joann's one day and the eggs just spoke to me. I think I like it :o)

Please check out all the blogs that I link with on the right sidebar of my blog...
