General Conference BINGO – Younger Children Version PART 2!

It seems I am just posting Conference to Conference. Hey, at least I am posting…. I finally created the rest of the Younger Children Version Bingo Cards.  I have included in this post all the new ones, plus a full set version, and also a full set version of the 5×7 size.  Please enjoy these cards as much as my family does.  It is the highlight of listening to Conference every year for my younger children.  My oldest one has quite using these, but my almost 15 year old still participates.  It’s not for everyone, but we enjoy it as a family.  Have a wonderful conference weekend!

As with all our creations on My Heart & Home, they take a LONG time to create.

General Conference BINGO – Younger Children Version

Since last Conference, I have been wanting to make a version of my Conference BINGO that is for kids older than Pre-School but not quite ready for the original version.  After a week of my family having the flu, including me yesterday, it was amazing that I even got 6 ready.  Yet here they are!!!!!  YEAH!!!  This is for all of you who still are willing to print them no matter how last minute they are.  For now I have 6 boards.  I will work on the others for next Conference.  At least that gives you something to come back for right?

As with all our creations on My Heart & Home, they take a LONG time to create.

A Book Review for you

Blood Moon (The Moonlight Trilogy, #1)Blood Moon by Teri Harman
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I received this book as an ARC copy to read before publication. From the description on Goodreads it seemed like something I would enjoy tremendously. I really like how the author started out. Teri kept my interest and I was excited to read more about the characters. Then, the time changes started happening. I really have no problem reading a book that switches between times. As an avid reader, I have the ability to keep characters in my head in the places where they come into a story. However, the time jumps in this book lead to a lot of stumbling blocks in my head. It really confused me as to exactly how each person from the past fit into the story in the present. Everything got straightened out in the end and I was able to connect the characters but I really feel that this detracted from the overall reading experience. I even put it down for a whole week not wanting to go back to the confusion of the set up of the book. Overall, I really liked the characters in the story and how they all relate to each other to make the end blend together. I just really think it needs to be done in a much better way so as not to confuse the reader and cause them to want to put it down.

Teri did a good job of keeping the book clean from typical sexual content that a lot of authors seem to think is important to put in a book. I appreciate the fact the author agrees you can have a relationship without the physical side coming into a story. I also feel like she did a good job keeping the read light and free from the heavy side of witchcraft.

If Teri can somehow fix the flow of time jumps in her book then I would give it a much higher star rating. Can’t wait to see the finished product in stores.

Pin the Kiss on Cupid

I was sooooo excited to create this little game from Tricia’s way cute Cupid.  I think your children will love being able to put the Kiss on Cupid.  Play it the same way you would any game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey.  Have fun this week and enjoy your children. Extra Hugs and Kisses makes a world of difference, even if they act like they don’t want them.😉

Valentine’s Day Bingo for Kindergarten – 2nd grade

Kisses and Hugs!!!!  

Isn’t that a great name for a Bingo game? I think so.  This is a great idea for your younger school age children to be able to play in their classroom.  Tricia made all the graphics and design on this one when she made her Be Mine Bingo game for older children.  I am in charge of my Kindergarten age child Valentine’s Day party and I really wanted to play the Bingo game but new it would be too hard if I used the Be Mine version.  So I made a 4×4 square size that would be perfect for those cutie pies.

Since I always print my stuff at Alphagraphics, Madison has introduced me to a FABULOUS product called Duraflex.  It has saved me time and money.  It reminds of me thin credit card paper.  I can print my stuff on this and I don’t have to laminate it afterwards.  Now who doesn’t want to save a step of preparation? I do!!!  I have started to print all my games on this and I am in heaven.  It doesn’t tear and you can get it wet without your ink being ruined.  Really, are you in heaven yet too?  The only time I am going to laminate that stuff, and you can, is if I want to write on it with dry erase markers or permanent markers.  Then I laminate it so I can have that effect, otherwise you will ruin it because the marker will not come off Duraflex, even with rubbing alcohol.

Believe me . .

I tested it for myself.

Learn from my mistake.

So, in case any of you would like to try it as well, I have included a PDF specifically for that purpose.  The sheets come in 12×18 size and that is what the file is formatted for.

We also have a post on creating a Heart Attack Door for your loved ones and many other fun ideas.  Check out our February category for more.

Enjoy! Have fun and don’t forget your thank you’s.  ;)

General Conference BINGO – Pre-School Version

I have been wanting to make a Pre-School version of my Conference BINGO and I finally did!!!!!  YEAH!!!  For now, I have 12 Boards, by next conference I will have the other 12, so you can have a total of 24.  As with all our creations on My Heart & Home, they take a LONG time to create.  

Please remember that these took close to 100 hours of work to make and I would love for you to share them with your friends and family, but please give them our blog address instead of pasting, copying, or otherwise taking credit for them.

Someone was kind enough to point out to me that the 3rd Bingo Board had the wrong names attached to the pictures.  Since I HATE leaving anything wrong, even though the pre-school children can’t read it, I fixed it and have given you the individual page below.  I have also fixed the files up above.  The PDF’s below are for those who already downloaded the file previous to my post fix.

Teacher Appreciation Ideas for a Theme – YOU are INCREDIBLE!!!

Bulletin Board PDF File

(Pre-note: All the files I created, I printed through Alphagraphics in Bountiful.  Grant, the owner, was exceptional to work with and I never print anywhere else.   Also, I will include all the PDF’s later today after I work on this year’s Teacher Appreciation, I am in charge of, that comes in just under 2 weeks.  A different theme with loads of fun that I will  post about next year.  Lots of files to finish making and details to go over.  Each picture you see on here will have a PDF file to go along with it.  Each file is press quality.  None of that grainy stuff.  I am a print snob.)

Eagle Bay Elementary Teachers and Staff are INCREDIBLE!!!!  They really are.  Back in 2009, because of circumstances beyond the person’s control, and with less than 2 weeks to the event, Teacher/Staff Appreciation had no one in charge of it.  I decided that being PTA Treasurer was a cushy job (LOL!!!) and that I could head up this event with no problem.  I wanted to create a theme that was fun, easy to work with, and had endless possibilities.  Somewhere on the internet, (I don’t remember as it was 3 years ago) I found someone’s post on a blog that showed they had used The Incredibles when they decorated their Teacher’s Door.  As soon as I saw that, the ideas started flying and what you see is the result of my imagination and love for the Teachers and Staff.

This is a sample of what the door kits I made looked like.  I made sure to make the kits ahead of time, so that it was a simple task of just hanging them up.  It is easier to get people to volunteer to hang up door kits than it is to get them to volunteer to come up with an idea all by themselves and then put it up.

Isn’t it cool that we can find just about any font we want on the internet now?  The have an Incredibles font which I used to make these signs.  There are some that I made specific to individuals, all the rest had this.

Our Teacher is Incredible PDF

This is the Pow that was used to put behind the teachers to get the more super hero affect.  It was cute.

Pows PDF file

I created a special poem to the teachers and used it for their doors.  These are my true feelings of how much I love teachers.  Growing up in a divorced family, I stayed after school a lot and was the teacher’s helper.  In Elementary, I would stay after school and go around to the different teachers to see if they needed my help.  I grew to love them and their kindness towards me influenced my decision that I wanted to be a teacher someday.  This poem is from my viewpoint of what I saw growing up from Elementary through High School.  My favorite High School teacher, Mrs. Thompson, became a really great mentor to me and even gave me her clothes she didn’t want anymore, which I LOVED!!!  You have to understand that all the girls in high school, even the popular ones, which I was NOT a part of, envied her.  The reason?  She NEVER wore the same outfit to school twice.  EVER!!!  They even kept track of it one year, which I thought was hilarious.  That is how many cute and stylish clothes she had.  Then you had me, whose mother didn’t have a lot of money and we did our shopping at the D.I., which didn’t bother me at all but I got teased incessantly about it from those popular girls.  I think I had even purchased one of their outfits one time and they knew it. (I realize this is becoming a extrememly long side note, but it’s important to my feelings on teachers. )  So, back to the story, my Senior year, Mrs. Thompson approached me and asked if I would like to have her clothes she wasn’t using anymore.  Imagine, if you possibly can, my thrill and excitement that I would get her clothes and that I would get to wear them at school, AND that those same girls who teased me, who wanted her clothes, would KNOW they were Mrs. Thompsons!!!!  The irony was beyond my wildest imagination.  She was an AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, kind hearted, and caring teacher, whom I love and I am still in contact with today.  Thank you, Mrs. Thompson, for your kindness towards one girl, and for making my life a little bit better my Senior year because of your thoughtful act of charity towards me.

I made this sign for the bottom of the door as a signature that this was from the students in their class.

Dashes and Violets PDF file

For each Teacher/Staff person I made them into either a Mrs. Incredible or a Mr. Incredible.  All the women loved that they looked skinny and tall . . .

. . . and all the guys loved that they looked buff and super strong.

We had a number of teachers who were pregnant or who had just had a baby, so on their doors I included a little Jack Jack.  All the rest of the doors had just the teacher or teachers who were in that classroom.

Jack Jack PDF file

For the Principal, Vice Principal, Secretaries, Custodians, Lunch Ladies, and all Specialist, I made their signs more individualized.

I thought it would be cute and appropriate to have our Principal, Mrs. Wade be the lady who seemed to be in charge of all the Super Heros, well, at least their clothing for sure.  Mrs. Wade LOVED it!

I always like to include the Officer who works with our school when I do these things.  Officer Winkleman thought this was the neatest thing he had ever seen and couldn’t recall a time he was ever included in the Teacher/Staff Appreciation week.  Don’t forget your Officer who works so closely with the kids!!

Attached to the thank you gift of movie tickets to the Kaysville Theatre, we had the little thank you note as seen below.

Thank you notes PDF file

On the Wednesday, while the teachers were off having some free time to themselves, I had a helper in each room come in and help the students fill out a paper telling the Teachers and Staff why the students thought they were Incredible.  We put them together and gave them to the teachers and staff the next day.  A copy of it will be pictured below.

Wedding Advice Printable

I had a friend approach me in my ward asking if I could help her create something for an upcoming wedding she has a part in.  Of course, I LOVE to create anything so I said yes.  Thought I would share the idea with you since it was sooooooooo cute.  Her friend/relative is having an old vintage library themed wedding and she wanted to have vintage library checkout cards available for people to write their advice on.  Here is what I came up with.  ENJOY!!!!

YW – Theme introduction “Arise and Shine Forth and Create your own Happily Ever After”

We really felt impressed, as a Presidency, to include President Uchtdorf’s talk on Happily Ever After in with our Arise and Shine Forth theme for the year.  It’s really a great theme that can be molded to your own group of girls.  We all need to Arise and Shine Forth on different areas in our life.  Here is a small handout that we did and gave out to each girl the second Sunday in January.  They all really enjoyed and and became excited about the year.  You are welcome to take it and use it, but please send a link back to our blog if you repost it.
