Just a quick post. I have to do flyers periodically for activities. A flyer is just a little more eye catching if an image added. You can download these blank flyers by clicking the images below. It'll take you to our download page. Then add your own content. Another way we make your life a little easier.
Here's a link to the previous post about our DIY blank flyers.
Here's a cupcake Leila custom made last year for our Newsletter Subscribers. I didn't post it beforehand mostly because I've been busy (like you) and forgot (probably unlike you). But.... that doesn't mean you still can't have your own little private after Mother's day celebration with it. If you knew her you know she made THE BEST CUPCAKES EVER. She was the Queen of Cupcakes. So even if you don't use it for a Mother's Day you ought to make it some time. Even if only for yourself.
More Tabletop Toasting.
Here's a nestible, Ring Thing for you.
Some of you have been asking about what and how to use the handouts we do here at LDS NEST. There really is a method to our methods.
We women in the church like our handouts. For as long as I can remember I've been getting handouts. I've even saved several from when I was in YW. (Let's not ask how long that's been.) One problem I had was that the handouts weren't accessible when I wanted them. And frankly, some of the other handouts I threw away and felt it was such a waste of resources.
I wanted a solution.
To help save on resources I started designing my handouts as 1/4 sheets (4 to a printed page). That way if someone didn't like them and threw them away it wasn't so bad. Also, when in leadership positions I suggested that all of us design handouts in this way so they could all be consistently sized to save.
Second, I put them on a ring. And for a lack of creativity I called it my Ring Thing. It stuck. I've been doing this size for years and it's been very helpful.
Some people hate handouts but personally I like them, probably because I'm visually oriented. Handouts remind us of thoughts and feelings we've had while being taught or a specific doctrine or principle that is important to us. They end up at bedsides, on fridges or taped to mirrors. It's part of our learning and changing.
(As a bonus, I've found that it helps the YW (or kids for seminary) re-teach a principle.)
My Ring Thing is like a mini book. A personally collected tutorial. You really can collect anything you like.
Here's our some of our covers.
Here at LDS NEST we'll continue to do most of our handouts at this size. Maybe you'll start designing and doing the same.
If you have any Nestie thoughts about this, let us know.
I did a post last year around this time on my personal site, Shannon's Studio, but thought I'd share it here. It's a Young Women's Personal Progress Divine Nature Value Experience #3. Wow, that was a mouth full. This value experience doesn't have to be done on Father's Day, but it might be a nice incentive. Read more about it HERE.
