This bag is pretty much the perfect size. It's big enough to fit my planner, camera, wallet, cell phone, and other random items without being so large that they get lost. And how about his cute, little pocket?

Pay It Forward #2 done! Back in October I promised to send something handmade to the first 3 people who commented on my post. Rachel, one of my friends from high school, was number 2 on the list. Here's what she got!
Rachel is a very talented writer, so I covered a mini composition notebook with hip fabric for her to jot down thoughts and ideas.
Next I made a jewelry set including a necklace and matching earrings. Don't you love how little accessories can make you feel so dressed up and sophisticated?
2 down, 1 to go! Angela, your handmade goodies are already in progress!

Valentine's Day is almost here! Still don't have a card for your special someone? Don't worry - there's still time to make a cute, little accordion card!
I "taught" the girls in our ward how to make these at Enrichment last week. I say "taught" because a) I was pretty unorganized and b) I got so much inspiration from the girls that I ended up using their ideas (pictured above) in addition to some of my own ideas (pictured below)!
For directions on how to make an accordion card, go here. To tie, place a ribbon in between the back cover and back page so it can tie in the front or on the side. Round a few corners, ink a few edges, and you're done. Well, except for writing your mushy valentine message, that is. :)

I would like to get the word out about Jeff's new blog. It is titled "Mormon Faith and Facts." It is, in his words, "an opportunity [to] share personal thoughts, experiences, doctrine, and facts about my faith." Jeff is so knowledgeable about the organization, history, and doctrines of our church, as well as having a strong testimony and ability to teach. I am excited to see what he has to share!

So many wonderful tributes have been paid to our beloved President Gordon B. Hinckley. I, too, am grateful for his wonderful example of tireless love and service to others and the Lord. I love how someone in my ward characterized him - "It wasn't possible to look at him and not smile in your heart." Although he will be missed, I can't help but be happy for his reunion with his dear wife, as well as for the amazing legacy he has left.
