Make Crosses during Discipleship!

Today we did arts & crafts for discipleship! I should've taken pictures of all of the crosses but this is what I have to show for now!

If only you could've seen them all! Close up on the base... see the Mary Medal? :D

Construction time: Each one took like 20 minutes
Construction cost: $0.15 for a candle and $0.30 for some hot glue. The rest were freeeeebs.

Check this and others out on the front desk, the missionaries' office, and Hilary's house!

Make that Footrest for my Bunkbed

The fact that our apartment supplied us with full sized mattresses is AMAZING but every year that I've had a bunk bed (all of college) I've found something to help me up. A dresser or a ladder, you know. Welllllll this year was different because our bed is back in a little nook and no such helping furniture existed! There were gaps in the bed boards so this was made:

It's just a little step but exactly the thing to make it not be entirely arm strength to get up and down!

It has a stop in the back that makes it only stick out so far and pushes in for storage and beauty. That back stop spins too so you can turn it and pull it out when we move or want to put it on the other side? I don't know!

Cost: $0.00 (scrap wood and a screw. so maybe 10 cents..)
Construction time: 10 minutes to round the corners and assemble

Make Grand's Flakey Pizzas!!!

O M Geee. One day I was SO hungry after an extraordinarily long school day and didn't know what to eat. I saw Grands Flakey Layers in my fridge and decided I could use it as a pizza crust! Well.. instead of putting it into one big ball, prior to cooking, the creation looked like this:

Eight little pizzas! I smushed the Grands to flat-ish pizza crusts. Pasta sauce from the fridge, freshly shredded medium chedder cheese and parmesean as well. Then pepperonis! Oven was 400 and they were in there for 13 minutes!

After trying to get them off, we decided pam would've been an amazing idea but all that happened was that both Ov Gloves got pizza all over them and lost cheese on a couple. Oh well :)

I forced Olivia to cut them up like real pizzas and they were a great success enough to make the blog!!

Thus, Grands Flakey Pizzas were born!

Make a Fig Tree to Pray under

At mass on Wednesday the Gospel was this:

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him,
"Here is a true child of Israel.
There is no duplicity in him."
Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?"
Jesus answered and said to him,
"Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree."
Nathanael answered him,
"Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
Jesus answered and said to him,
"Do you believe
because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?
You will see greater things than this."
And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
you will see heaven opened
and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

John 1:47-51

Well. It made me want to have a fig tree too for Jesus to see me under. And. I made this!

It's up at the end of my bunk bed so I can pray there under my secluded little fig tree!

Construction time: 45 minutes
Construction cost: $.02

(For real was calculated. leaves are from a pack of paper my mom bought for a penny, the trunk is a paper bag from a store [free] and i used 1/4 of a green crayon.. which was 1 of 24 in a 24 cent pack)

Oh surprise too! I found out my phone could take pictures in different colors too so see below my fig tree in Sepia and Negative!
