Wainscoting Perfection


Hey, long time no blog!  I’m back, after a completely wonderful and relaxing summer.  I’ve got lots of posts to catch up on!

This is my friend Anneli’s home and she was nice enough to take some pictures for me to post.  Take a good look, cause I want to copy it exactly.  Her husband added all this beautiful trim work to their home and I think its A-MAZING.

Wondering what color she painted her bedroom?  Its Benjamin Moore, gull wing grey.  I also asked how tall the wainscoting is; its 64 inches including the baseboard.

Husband, take note.  Our house is next.

Here’s the work in progress:

And here’s the finished master bedroom.  Beautiful!

Check out the other awesome trim work in their house.


Welcoming New Members to Relief Society


Summer time is coming, and for me that means its moving season.  Over the next few months, we’ll have many new sisters and families move in.  As a RS presidency, we try hard to make them feel welcome.  During our new member’s first Sunday in Relief Society, we have her fill out this information sheet you can download here:

New Ward Member Information

It is especially helpful to share this info with the ward clerk if he doesn’t already have their records.

We also make sure each sister is visited the first week they move in.  I bring a current ward directory and a cute sheet of “important numbers” to hang on their fridge.  These numbers include Bishopric, presidents, missionaries, and the temple.  Need a clipart for the top of your sheet?  Use this:

And of course, on our initial visits, I bring along a gourmet cupcake (bought, not made, so worth the $2.50)  because nothing says, “We’re glad you’re here” like an amazing cupcake.  Yum!  And just a reminder, don’t forget to assign a visiting teacher as soon as possible; this is the BEST way to make a new member feel loved and welcome!
