I am really excited (and a little nervous) to share something I’ve been working on for the last few weeks. I have really enjoyed sharing my visiting teaching ideas with you for the past 2 years. (2 years! The time has flown.) With the new year, I decided to stretch my creative muscles and design some printables I could sell online.
I just set up an Etsy shop with some fun cards to share with the sisters we visit teach. They are priced at 99 cents per card (or a collection of 5 cards is $3.99), and they are a sweet and fun way to share some love with each other.
They can be dressed up with a little paper or ribbon, but also look great as is. They are printed 4 to a sheet. You can cut them, add a personal message, and either hand deliver, stick in an envelope, or even print as a postcard.
The “Time Flies” card is one of my favorites – it’s a tentative appointment maker, and save the date card rolled into one.
It is helpful to occasionally give our contact information to our sisters, and I’ve shown a few possible ways to do this.
I printed some info on a pretty colored sheet of paper, cut to fit my cards, then stapled, glued, or sewed them on.
To celebrate the debut of my little shop, I’m giving away 5 digital downloads of this card collection. Visit my shop here, then leave a comment on this post telling me which card you like best. I’ll close comments on Monday, January 17 at 9 p.m. ET and post the winning names.
Thank you, as always, for being so kind and supportive.
I love the time flies card, however, I love each one. Very cute and creative. Thanks.
Love the Care for a chat card. Very creative. Great ideas.
My favorite is the post card . . . I could actually see myself using that one. 🙂
I am a visiting teaching supervisor and have been the coordinator. I think that the more ideas out there to help the sisters do a better job at caring for each other is wonderful. Thanks for sharing!!
All are very cute and creative!! I think that the post card is my fav!!! Good job KristIn!!
One of my goals for this year is to be a better visiting teacher. I think these are great and such a good idea to let the sisters know that we think of them more than just one day a month. My favorite is the Care for a Chat card! So cute.
What a great idea and a great way to celebrate two years! Congratulations, and way to go!
It's a tie for the Care for a Chat or the Let us Lighten your Load cards! They are so cute! I really love and appreciate all of your ideas! Good luck with your Etsy shop!

This is a great idea. i love your cards and hope they do well for you. thanks for sharing such great talent.
I LOVE "Lighten your load"! I want to make these into thank you cards for ,y visiting teachers who lighten my load all the time. As a sisteer with health problems…they are my guardian angels!
I really like them all. I think it's the small things that make our ladies feel special.
Time Flies and Chair for a Chat are my faves! Great job!!!
I LOVE all of them, but my favorite is the wheelie one!

My fav is the Time Flies card but they are all special, can be used in so many ways. Thanks so much for all your generous gifts, they are inspiring our small branch to reach out more!
I like the care for a chat, and the post card…you've dine a great job 🙂
Time Flies is my favorite. Cute cards.
I love the "let us lighten your load" card — that one just really speaks to me! and the "wheelie" one — love it!
Do I really have to pick just one? I love them all, but the Time Flies one is my fav (for now). 🙂 So cute!
They're all so cute! I love the "time flies" as an appointment maker and a save the date. So creative.
SO HARD TO CHOOSE! I think the 'time flies' and the 'lighten your load' are my faves, but they are ALL great! Good job!
Your cards are simply adorable! My favorte is "Let us Lighten Your Load". Good luck with your new adventure.
I'm glad that you are giving away the card collection, because it would be hard to choose just one. They all speak to a need for at least one sister. The one that speaks to me the most is the "Let us lighten your load" card. That seems to define visiting teaching at its best.
I love the 'care for a chat?' card. So darned creative and clever.
I love the let us lighten your load one. So true of what we do! Love to win this!

I love the lighten your load card too! It is such a great way to serve each other.
Thanks for sharing your creativity!
I like the "wheelie" one 🙂 As a VT supervisor I love things like this to try to help motivate the sisters on my route to do their VT.
I LOVE these cards! This is my first time hearing about your blog. Visiting Teaching is so wonderful! I have such a testimony. I love the sisters I visit, their families, and their lives. They are as important to me as my family is. I can't wait to see more here! Thanks!
LOVE these cards! It's hard to pick a favorite, but I do love the 'care to chat' one. 🙂 This is my first visit to your blog – I'm bookmarking it to come back!
I love the little "lighten your load" bookmark card. It's adorable!!
It is difficult to pick just one. I would go with the time flies one as well. Thank you for sharing your talent and skills. As a rs pres., I am grateful to have a place to send the sisters for motivation and help.
Thank you for what you do!!
Hard to pick just one, but I luv the lighten your load card. I can definately use them all since my ladies are hard to get in contact with, too.
I couldn't pick just one, I'm going to have to go with the collection. I think each card will fit each of the women on our list. What a fun giveaway. The cards are so clever!
I like the lighten the load card. Thanks for sharing.
I love the Care for a Chat card! I have some wonderful ladies that I look forward to 'chatting' with each month. I enjoy it so much, I have e-mail addresses to keep in touch and also they are friends on Facebook so that we are in contact way more than once a month. Your cards are beautiful–I would love to have them!!! Thanks for the opportunity–I love your blog and I use your ideas every month! :o)
I love them all. I would love one of each. But if I need to pick on it would be the Care to Chat card.
My favorite card is "Let us lighten your load". I have a unique situation with my sisters. None of them are active or want to be visited but I try to reach out to them so they will ask for my help. Something like this is perfect for that. Even if I can't share the message, I can still serve :o) Thanks for sharing these.
These are fabulous!! So hard to choose a favorite.. I love the Time Flies. And every other one. 🙂
Love them! I think the lighten your load one is my fav!
What darling cards! My favorite is the 'Time Flies' 🙂
I really like the "Lighten Your Load" card. Because in today's world, every woman would love to be lifted up and have their load lighten in anyway. Beautiful work. Wishing you the best on your new adventure!
When going VTing I check your site first for creative ideas. Thanks for your time in helping the rest of us with our callings. I like "lighten your load".
Great cards! They are so cute, and creative. I always need help coming up with new ideas. It's nice to have someone out there to help those of us who need the help.
My favorite is the time flies card! I have a sweet sister who always get confused about when we are coming and this would be fantastic for her!
I would love to win a free download of these beautiful but useful VT items!
Love these cards – all of them, but if I have to pick one it would be the Time Flies!
Love it! Congrats on your new store. I look forward to shopping!
These are absolutely, positively genius! Love every one of them.

I can't believe I haven't found your blog sooner. Great job! 🙂
I love all the cards you made. Especially the one with a bicycle on it – I wheelie like it! 😉
These are great! Love them all! But if I HAD to pick a favorite, it is your "Care for a chat?" card. I like your corresponding idea of sewing on contact info with a bow, too. Cute!
You are a very talented Sister! Love the lamp and old chair. Kinda' reminds me of my great-grandma (yep, I'm older). Do you know, how much of a blessing you are in SO MANY of our lives? I do hope so and my prayer is that you keep creating~and sharing your talents that our Heavenly Father has given to you. God bless and be with you dear Sister.
I love the "lighten your load" cards. I mean, isn't that the best part of visiting teaching? Knowing that you can help lighten someone's burden and that your burden can be lightened? I know mine has and am so grateful for this wonderful program.
