Simple Easy Crafts!

I have a lot of projects to start when the boys are back in school!  Here are a few that I think have a lot of potential:



My local Deseret Industries thrift store has TONS of these vases in stock.
And I think my basement storage room does too!
I love how you can
turn them into...


...these great "milk glass' vases!
I am thinking that it might be fun to do fall colors,
or even black and fill them with branches.

Another fun project will be following the subway sign trend.
Here's a great way to take an expensive store sign...



and turn it into your very own, and much cheaper, version!



I don't know that I will do the laundry version.
I'm thinking about a sports one.

And finally...


I cannot wait for this!

Missionary Package Services

Here are links to the Missionary Package delivery companies that I have either heard about or used.  If you know of any other ones, post in the comments section and I will add them here!  These are great to use if you are pressed for time and just want to send a package to let your missionary know that they are missed.  Also, these are just great missionary care package ideas that you could make yourself!

You can find MORE great ideas on my Missionary Pinterest Board!



One of the many package options
"You're an O-Fish-Al missionary"

I also like using swedish fish with the scripture in Matthew
"Follow me and I will make you fishers of men"
Perfect for missionaries!




DearElder.com

 Absolutely the BEST and FASTEST way to get a letter to your missionary in the MTC!
Go to their site, type your letter, send it before noon, and they will receive it at dinner time.
*They don't deliver on weekends, so if you send it on Friday after noon, they won't get it until Monday night.  Also, their package prices are VERY HIGH, almost double what MTCDelivery.com is, so I would avoid them.  Especially their Krispy Kreme donut delivery price - it's outrageously overpriced!





PioneerPartyandGift.com


Tons of great package ideas for MTC delivery!
Their prices seem pretty reasonable and they also do same-day delivery to the MTC.






Called2Serve.com

 This is another great place to find missionary packages. 
I put the Krispy Kreme logo here because they have the CHEAPEST price on
a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts being delivered to the MTC - $14.99 - with FREE MTC delivery!
Lots of other great ideas on this site too!






BYUBookstore.com


Order a dozen fresh-baked cookies for $6.95 + $2.00 delivery
Lots of different options from which to choose:
Chocolate Chip
Chocolate Chocolate Chip
Chocolate Chip Pecan
Peanut Butter with Chocolate Kiss
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut
Frosted Sugar Cookie
Turtle






Thurgoodies.com


Another site which does not only MTC deliveries, but BYU and UVU deliveries too!
Cupcakes, breads, cookies, brownies, etc.
