Come Visit me!!!

THE WAIT IS OVER!  Some of you have been asking about book 2 in the "What If...." series.  It is called What If You Could Travel Anywhere and we will be releasing it this Saturday.  This story is just as fun as the first and gave me a lot of chance to really use my imagination.  It's based on the idea traveling in a tube like you see at the bank.  You won't want to miss it. You can come see the Author, Tim Brown & I for a book signing this Saturday, Aug 3, 11 AM - 1PM at Marissa's Books & Gifts in Murray, Utah.  We'd love to see you and visit in person!  Tell your friends and family!  Thanks for all your support.  I hope to see you there! 

And for those of you who are curious about book 3 - I am illustrating it right now.  Let me tell you - it's going to be a real party!  Your kids and grandkids will love it.  

also - a small request.  If you happen to think about it while you're on your knees, could you send a little prayer my way?  This past month can only be described as a series of unfortunate events!  My husband fell off a 40 foot cliff at scout camp and had to be life flighted to St. George.  He's fine.  Just a bunch of torn ligaments.  He's hobbling around on crutches.  And very disappointed that the only helicopter ride in his life wasn't all that fun! -though it does make for a really exciting story!  It's just one of a handful of similar experiences he's had lately. If I told you more, you wouldn't even believe me.  And honestly, I'm just exhausted.  If I didn't know better I'd think the universe was out to get him.  Of course when bad things happen, good things happen too.  We've experienced a lot of miracles right along side all the adventures. Heavenly Father has taken good care of us - as he always does.  But man, am I tired.  Life can really take a lot out of you.  I'm just trying to hold on and keep functioning for a few more weeks till the kids go back to school!  Anyone else looking forward to that? 😂

GIVE AWAY! Last new set....for a while.

Hello Everybody!  I'm excited to share a new set of art with you.  It will be the last one for a little while.  I'm now working exclusively on getting illustrations done for the third book in the "What If" book series.  We are hoping to get all three books out on the market in time for the Christmas season. I'm definitely biased, but I think the set of three would make a great gift for every kid you know. :D

This set is the primary song memory game set for this year.  It's got all the song choices for the new Come Follow Me curriculum.  Holy Cow! I didn't realize there were so many choices! I thought I could quickly do this set between books. And even though it took a little longer than I expected, I still enjoyed every minute of it.  I hope you'll enjoy what I've come up with.

I should also mention that because so many of you have asked about the songs "Choose Him Again" and "The Miracle" by Shawna Edwards, that I included those two songs in the set as well.

As usual, I'm going to give away a free set to three lucky winners next Saturday, June 22, 2019.  If you would like to win a free set, just leave a comment with your name and email address.  Or, go to my Etsy shop to buy it now. You can use the coupon code BLOGFRIEND to get 20% off anything in my shop from now until July 15, 2019.

Hello everyone!  I hope yourSaturday is going along smoothly.  It's chore day at our house, which usually means lots of weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth.

As promised, I have chosen three winners to receive a free copy of my new kit "Jesus and his 12 Apostles". Actually, I had my kids choose the winners.  I let them each choose a number between 1 and 32 (the number of comments left) then, the person with the comment corresponding to each number was the winner.  The three winners are:




Congratulations to you ladies!  Check your email.  I have already sent you your kits.  And for those of you who didn't win - I still love you!  If you go to my Etsy shop you can get 20% off of anything by using the coupon code SPRING2019

For those who are interested, I am currently working on drawings for a matching game with the primary songs for this year.  This is a much bigger project than it has been in the past, but hopefully it will be out soon.  I wanted to get this done and in the shop now because I'm also starting to work on the illustrations for book 3 in the "What If" series. The deadline is really tight, so I know that once I get started I won't have a chance to do anything else and many of you have asked about the matching game.  So, send some prayers my way if you can! I'm going into survival mode.  :D. Thanks again for all your support.  I appreciate your comments.  It really brightens my day and encourages me to keep going.  I'm lucky to have you.  💕

A NEW KIT!!! (Finally)

Good News! I finally got all the illustrations done for the 2nd book in the "What If" book series.  I'm really excited to see the finished product.  It's a super fun story and I had a lot of fun imagining and creating the pictures for it. If you're interested in it, you can preorder the book on the website.  You can also get the books on Amazon.

Now that I'm in between books for a few days I had some time to finish up this new kit that I've been working on for quite some time.  It's for the new Come Follow Me curriculum.  It's a clip art and coloring page set of Jesus and his 12 Apostles.  Check it out!

I tried to make the Apostles look like ordinary people with all different shapes and sizes, so they are different heights and weights and everything.  It was lots of fun for me.  I hope you'll like it too. Each character comes in a separate file in both jpeg and png, as well as a black and white line art so you can color it yourself. There's also a printable sheet of all 13 of them together on one sheet, and a coloring page of that as well.

As always, I'll be giving away a free kit.  Just leave your name and email address in a comment below and next Saturday, May 18, 2019 I will randomly draw a winner.  Spread the word! And thanks for sticking with me.

Conference Coloring Pages

So, you may have noticed that I still haven't done anything new since my last post.  We were asked to do 12 more illustrations for the second "What If" book.  So, I've been working feverishly trying to do those.  We really wanted to get this second book published at the beginning of April.  I'm still working on it though.  So, new things of my own will have to wait a little longer.

In the meantime, I want to give a shout out to a new artist named Kate who has opened a shop on Etsy called Picture Perfect color.  She specializes in doing LDS coloring pages.  I know a lot of you have expressed interest in that, so check out her shop!  She's got some great images and really great prices.  And right now - she's having a conference sale.  Hurry though because her sale ends tomorrow (April 6).

These are hers.  Cute, right? 

And if it's not too much to ask, say a little prayer for me to help me get this book done!  I'd really appreciate it!  Thanks for being patient with me!
