Morristown New Jersey: Report on Christian's Mission

Image
Today I was asked to speak in Church and report on how my missionary, Elder Allred is doing to date. I was one of FIVE other missionary moms speaking. Others included the mom's of Sister Ritter, Elder Hardy, Elder Larsen and Sister Rogers. We were all asked to share a report on our missionary for 5-6 minutes (very hard task for a missionary mom fyi). Many friends and family asked me about my talk, saddened that they wouldn't be able to attend. Others from my ward expressed the same regret that they would be missing our meeting. So like any good blogger I thought I should put my blogging skills to work and share with EVERYONE!! So following is what I shared (give or take some parts due to the time limit placed on me as I stood to speak after the meeting time should have concluded). Enjoy....the best parts are from Elder Allred!!

My son Elder Christian Allred is currently serving in the Morristown New Jersey Mission. He has been serving for the past 390 days, with approximate 34…

Drab to Fab: Quick Solutions with Photos

Image
I love photos! I love photos printed out and sprinkled throughout my personal space! When I need an invitation or a poster, I almost always start with a photographs! I either incorporate them into the project or use them as background!
So when I was faced with a project and I had little to no time to pull out all my creative juices and supplies... I thought PHOTOS. What can I do with photographs?  You see we had this bulletin board at church that we wanted to convey this year's theme but all we had on it was an enlarged scripture page I found HERE. But it was lack luster and needed some color. What we needed where pictures from the scriptures to create a fun border around the enlarged page. Best part is all the scripture pictures are all in one place HERE

I simply saved these to my camera roll on my cell phone and started printing them from my couch with the  Canon PRINT App and started printing on my Canon PIXMA iP8720 Crafting Printer.


Honestly the hardest part of this proje…
