Super Saturday

** Edited to add: I made a little tutorial on how to do the bird's nest and the family frame. Here is the link. Thanks for your interest.**

In my church, the women will sometimes get together on a Saturday and make all manner of crafts. This activity is called a Super Saturday. We have one coming up in October and I was asked to come up with a few projects to teach everyone on that day that had a christmas theme.

I have done these two as Christmas gifts before, so I thought they were appropriate: a wall hanging that says "Family" and in smaller letters across it, says "a journey to forever". The second is a bird's nest ornament to put in your Christmas tree. I wrapped it in a clear bag and tied it with a ribbon.

The third craft project is a recipe magnet board. I got the idea from my sister. Simply hang it in your kitchen and it will hold whatever recipe card you are using. The last item is a bracelet. Most people don't know how easy it is to make a bracelet. So I will be teaching that class too.


I'm always looking for little craft projects. Feel free to share yours with me.

Great projects! Can I come to your Super Saturday? Our ward is not exactly what you would call "crafty". I'm totally stealing your idea for the recipe holders...

These are all perfect for Super Saturday. :) I love going to SS!

As far as I was told- we aren't 'supposed' to do Super Sat's anymore. I don't know if that's church wide policy or just our stake- but we aren't allowed to anymore. Check it out.

We don't do SS anymore either, but I say if your stake still wants to do it, go for it!!

I always try to do a fall stichery every year. Mel can keep doing it, once a year is good for me. :)

Or really cute christmas table runners.

Hi-I'm doing a SS in November. Can you give me more details on the "Family" frame. Where did you get the frame? Are the words vinyl lettering, or did you print them from the computer? Can you email your .jpg file of it so I can have a better look? My email is nj.lamb@yahoo.com. Thank you!!

Hi! Such cute projects. Our ward doesn't do Super Saturdays anymore and I am so sad about it! I was wondering if I could get the template for your "Family" project. Can I get it in both colors? My email is nateandmichelle@gmail.com. Thank you so much!!! You are so great to share your cute ideas!
