Giving Away

There are currently a few crafty items in my house that I've no use for. After dispersing what I can amongst friends, I've still got some left over items that are cluttering my home and mind. If you'd like any, please leave a comment letting me know which item(s) you'd like, and next week I'll randomly pick a number and make known who the lucky beneficiaries are. If you live out of state, I'd be happy to mail them to you free of charge (seriously, you're doing me a favor by taking them) unless you live in Zanzibar or something. We'll have to talk in that case. If I'm freaky enough to have lurkers, feel free to de-lurk.

I have two sets of Advent Christmas Stockings in various Christmas paper. Last year, every morning from Dec 1 to Dec 24, Emma pulled one off of a ribbon. On the back of each stocking, I had written an activity for us to do that evening (write letters to Santa, decorate the tree, etc). I'll provide you with the paper stockings, a list of activity ideas, and a set of mini clothespins.


This is my set from last year to give you an idea of how they look hung.

Advent Calendar

I have the VINYL ONLY for this board. I can give you instructions on how the board was completed if you plan on making one. You could always just stick the vinyl on the wall above where you hang your stockings.

Stocking Board

1 FAMILY set of photo holder binder clips


1 FRIEND set of photo binder clips


1 cute picture of Emma as a baby


I have two sets of these laminated babies. They're perfect for little hands to flip through after you've exhausted your supply of fishy crackers on Sundays. I think there's about fifty different ads in each set. Each card is 4x6 (don't quote me on that).

I'll take the cards, please and thank you!

BTW--you are so talented! No, I'm not trying to sway your vote. Seriously, just looking at your stuff reminds me of how crafty you are, and how so very un-crafty my piteous little self is!

I'd like to enter the raffle for ALL of them except the cards. I was lucky enough to be in your ward when you prepared those for enrichment. You're awesome.

Rachael said...

I actually am not interested in any of the crafts----not that they are not ADORABLE but I have the ones I need. But I am wondering if you are going to post what your ward is doing for Super Sat? We seem to have lame crafts so I like to see what others are doing.

Monique said...

I would love the family clips...and the pic of Emma...what a doll! :)

Bridget said...

I would love to be in the raffle for the friend clips, stockings, and the set of babies. Maybe I will win one if I am in the raffle for 3. lol

Kate said...

Heather sent me ... I would love the vinyl! I've been wanting to make one of those boards with that exact saying on it for eons. Maybe you'd be willing to post a little How To tutorial for the clips? [whisper] And I'm with Rachael ... would love to see what your ward is doing for Super Saturday - [sigh] for the same reasons. Thanks so much!

Family or Friends clips and/or Mormon Ad book, please and thank you.

Flying Princess said...

Ooh, ooh! I love the stockings and think the mormonad cards may add to the reverence (and sanity) on Sundays. I'll even send you postage to get it all the way to Pennsylvania.

Flying Princess said...

And then can you come clean out my house?

The Pullins said...

I would love to have the ad cards!

Monique said...

I am going to guess I didn't win since I haven't received my prize winning phone call.

Flying Princess said...

Thanks for the stockings! I was so relieved when it wasn't a flaming bag of dog poop.

Now I just have to come up with 24 somethings that will keep my kids' attention for a few minutes.

Rachel said...

I was doing a google search for stocking holders and came across this blog. I love the stocking wall board - SO cute. Did you ever do a write up on how to make it? If not, I would love to know.

Hey Rachel (the Rachel asking for directions about the board) - send a message to and I will be able to respond with directions.
