It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I took a year off of blogging, helped my kids where they needed the help (hearing aids! BIG deal around here!), and took the time to really think about what I wanted for myself professionally. I did some re-branding, and discovered myself in a whole different way that I am thrilled with! Crafty Cupboard is in my past, and I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to keep paying for the hosting to keep this site alive 😉 but I wanted to introduce you to the new me:

All Good Things

I’ve considered writing this post for about a year now. And today, I am finally going to hit Publish.

I’m stepping away from my blog. No more thinking up new material, sharing to Facebook, posting on Instagram, handing out business cards, linking up to parties, checking stats, and editing photos. I’ll still upload my Visiting Teaching Printables through December, but that’s all. And no fancy photos for them!

My Girls

I’ve got other things to do, and frankly, this […]

August is here! I just got back from a 10-year-Anniversary trip to France, but the first project I wanted to work on when I got home was these August Visiting Teaching Printable Handouts. This month, the focus is Meekness and Humility.

Dreams do come true tote bag

Today is Katy Dill’s birthday! She’s been an icon in the sewing community for ages with her blog No Big Dill, and when I heard about the gathering surprise party, themed “A Rainbow for Katy” among my fellow bloggers, I had to join in.

Katy is an artist, and a dreamer. Put the two together, and her creations for herself and her 5 girls and 1 lucky little boy are simply magical! Her Instagram feed is so inspirational. I always feel guilty I’m scrolling […]

The Little Big Girl Room

My sweet little 6-year-old was supremely jealous when I did the weekend bedroom makeover for her sister, and begged me to do one for her too. But I didn’t want to spend money on another room… mostly because she is still so little and her sister with whom she shares the room is so little. Disaster strikes in their room all the time- those two are quite the destructive duo! So you can see my hesitation on any investments. Still, I gathered things from […]

July Visiting Teaching Printable Handouts by the Crafty Cupboard

This month’s Visiting Teaching Message is about Forgiveness and Mercy, which is something we ALL can work on, all the time. It is a great reminder for us, because sometimes we forget that people need forgiving, ourselves included.

Here’s two 4×6 printable visiting teaching handouts that can keep the message fresh and at the forefront of our minds. The scripture, John 3:6, is directly from the official message, but the quote is from my own study on the subject. President Hinckley had […]
