My Favorite Visiting Teaching Handouts for Relief Society

This is my favorite website for visiting teaching handouts! Every month she has creative and fun ideas.

The visiting teaching message for August is entitled, ' A Society of Holy Women '. Silvia H. Allred said,  "The work of Relief Society is holy, and doing holy work creates holiness in us."  Here's the link to the Inkablinka website: See Me Visit Teach.
The April 2012 Visiting Teaching Message is how to love, watch over and strengthen our sisters as visiting teachers. She made some jelly bean bracelets to go along with the nine suggestions in the message.

Dyeing clothes with the Dressing Your Truth Program

The Dressing Your Truth program has all the instructions to help Type 2's create the perfect tone and Type 3's the perfect shade for their clothes using dye.  I tried dying some old things about a year ago, but I didn't follow the directions like I should have and the clothes turned out spotty (ALWAYS dissolve the dye in 2 cups of water beforehand).  The other day I found a great flowing Type 2 skirt, but it was white.  So I decided to try my hand at making it the right color by dyeing it along with some other white things I had been saving in my closet.

I used a top-loading washing machine and this time I REALLY followed the directions on the Mauve Rit Dye package.  I kept the wash cycle going for about 30 min (I had to keep restarting the agitation cycle before it reached the drain cycle).  When the clothes were done they were the color of the shirt above.  That wasn't the exact color I wanted so I used a package of Pearl Gray Rit Dye and dyed the skirts and a shirt again.
 This is a sweater that I left in the mauve dye for less time.
This is the final color of the skirts and shirt.  I like the more grayed effect of the mauve color.
I really love the drape of this skirt and it's hemline.  
I bought the shirt at Charlotte Russe and the skirt at Marshalls.
It's been so much fun to discover my Beauty Profile (Type 2) and Dress My Truth!

Fun video about Prince Harry and Pippa

Carol and Sarah explain have fun explaining which of the 4 Types in the Energy Profiling system fit Pippa and Harry. Take a look at their pictures in the video and see if you can tell their Type from their facial features and other telling reasons they share with you.

Facial profiling is an important and fun! part of the Energy Profiling system. When you know which features show up in the faces of the 4 Energy Types, you can better understand other people more quickly, and honor them in living true to their nature.  I'm a Type 2.  What is your Energy Profile?

Here's another post about Energy Types.

Tour of Biltmore--America's Largest Home!

We went on a tour of the Biltmore in Asheville, NC, on June 21st.  It was AMAZING! I would have loved to show you the inside, but no photos were allowed.
The Biltmore is the largest privately owned home in the United States 
at 175,000 square feet (16,300 square meters).  It was built by George Vanderbilt.

A New World Ch√Ęteau

Architect Richard Morris Hunt modeled the house to look like a 16th-century French chateaux. It features 4 acres of floor space, 250 rooms, 34 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, and 65 fireplaces. The basement has a swimming pool, gymnasium and changing rooms, bowling alley, servants' quarters, kitchens, and more.
Inside the Biltmore.
After the house tour we went on a tour of the gardens.  They had a huge vine covered awning.

Walking back to the house, Ryan had to take a break  It was really hot and humid.
Can you tell that Ryan was tired of walking and tired of photos.
