28 minutes of fame - Cricut Mini

Has anyone seen the Cricut Mini infomercial that has been airing for a few months?  Catch a glimpse of me and my fire station card table tent?


Here it is in all its glory.  A little cheesy, yes...but it was a lot of fun to be a part of.  I could get used to someone following me around all day fixing my hair and touching up my makeup for me, but that is a story for another day.

Next time you are up late channel surfing, watch for me and the Cricut Mini.

Missionary Greenie Package

My sister-in-law recently went to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo to prepare for her mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  Her first week in I sent her a "greenie" package.  It was a great MTC gift, and didn't cost much.


Oftentimes, new missionaries are referred to as "greenies."  I packed a box full of green-themed gifts to brighten her day.

I found Mike & Ikes, wintergreen life savers, mint oreos, and mint kisses to snack on.  I also included a green canister of nuts in case she was in the mood for a healthy snack.  Finally, I found green printed notepads, and cards with a green pen.  Missionaries are always in need of tiny note pads to jot down appointments or notes, and cards to send notes to their friends and family.


This package was a huge success - she loved it!
