I prepared these little houses for my Primary Class for today's lesson. 
 I didn't teach today because I had the most annoying headache! aaaugh....... 
 I had a parent of one of the kids in the class teach my lesson instead.  
The lesson's song was about "Love At Home".  
Hope you had a fabulous Sunday!

Hello friends, I needed some magnets for the magnet board in my Primary Class.  I was at Michaels Craft Store today and saw these cute little erasers.  You know the creative juices started flowing!   I had an idea for making my own magnets.  This is what I came up with.

I put a glass block (anything heavy) on top until they were dry.


And now, the winner of the Cricut Jubilee Cartridge!

Hi everyone, I made these cards way ahead of time for my little (Church) Primary Class for their birthdays!  I am also entering them over at Robyn's Blog Hop. I'm always doing thing at the last minute, but this year I'm taking a different approach!  Inside the gift bags there is a pair of socks inside a Cupcake Wrapper, topped with a chocolate heart.  You can see how I put them together HERE.  I used the Cricut Cupcake Wrapper Cartridge to cut the wrappers.
Bug Hugs!

This is what the wrappers look like with the sock.
