Primary room 2019

The primary room turned out so cute this year. We again ordered from The Redheaded Hostess. I love the come follow me theme and the focus on our Savior. It’s a happy room for my beautiful primary kids!


Primary 2018


Here’s the primary room from 2018! I bought the bundle by Courtney Aitken from The Redheaded Hostess. The theme was I Am a Child of God. The program was amazing! They sang a beautiful new song called I Will Be What I Believe. All of the kids wrote their own parts either on their own or with the help of parents, teachers, or Jamie Matthews so we got to hear all of their testimonies.


The board with President Nelson was an announcement board and the board with the knight was our spotlight board. Each month we spotlighted a person who could lead us, guide us and walk beside us. Those people are heroes because they teach us how to find Christ and to choose the right!

Primary 2017

I didn’t post ANYTHING in 2017! It just flew by! These are the only pictures I have of our cute “Choose the Right” bulletin boards from 2017. The banner is from Courtney Aitken. It was a transportation theme. We had a cute street sign on the front bulletin board. The road went all the way around to the front of the room, ending at the temple. One bulletin board had a world map. That was our “primary pen pal” board. We wrote to other primaries telling them how we choose the right and asked them to write back to us. We received letters and pictures from St. George; Orem; Georgia; Athens, Greece; and Istanbul, Turkey. I really wish I had remembered to take pictures of the rest of the boards. Oh well!IMG_2185IMG_2186IMG_2187



Handprints and zigzags

The quilt with the hand prints was for a man in the ward who’s in the hospital. His wife is a primary teacher. (Love her!).  The handprints are from the primary children. It didn’t turn out as nice as I would have liked it to but it’s cute. We used an iron on to put a message in the blank square.

I love the zigzag quilt. It was for a friend who had a new baby boy. I love it so much I’m going to do another one (or two…).

My sewing machine needs to go into the shop. Hopefully I’ll get it back soon!

Pinwheel Party Quilt

I am really good at starting projects and really bad at finishing them.  I started this 8 week quilt along in 2010 and finished it last night (2015, yikes!).  It is far from perfect but I have to say I LOVE IT.  And IT’S DONE!  It can be found at


Cub Scout Ethan

This is Ethan.  He’s the new Cub Scout Mascot.  Andrea wanted a standee for cub camp.  I found a picture to use as a guide and made him for her.  The first day of camp the wind blew him over and knocked his head off.  After some minor surgery, he was good to go!
