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.

WINNERS!

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:

ROSEMARY CHAMBERS

CARA CHILDS

SHARON SEVY

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 WhatIfBookSeries.com 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!

Check your email!

Thank you so much to all of you who left comments, suggestions, and ideas for the new Come Follow Me curriculum.  I'm excited to get started on some great new things for you.

I just sent out an email to all of you with my new Baptism song kit!  If you didn't get it, send me an email.  Some of you didn't leave your address for me, and it's possible that in the process of typing in 74 different email addresses that I may have gotten a few wrong....  So, just send me an email and I'll be happy to send you your kit.

Without further ado, here it is:



There are full page (8.5x11) flip chart print outs, and individual elements as well.  So, you can print it as it is, or get creative and make your own something special. Here are the flip chart pages: 






If you have friends who missed out on the giveaway, they can still get this kit from my Etsy shop.  Click here.  I hope you'll all enjoy it and get a lot of good use out of it.  Thanks again for your help!


P.S. I almost forgot!  Some of you asked for things that I may have already drawn.  So, here are a few things that may or may not meet your needs. :D 


This is a flip chart for the song "I belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints"
Click here to get it.


This is a whole clip art set of special needs kids.  Click here to find it in my Etsy shop.


This is a printable set of illustrations of the Articles of Faith.  I think you guys were asking for flip charts to go with the songs of each article of faith, but just in case, I thought I'd let you know about these too.  Click here to find them in my Etsy shop.


And last, but not least I have several sets of memory game cards for primary songs.  I will do a big set with all the options for this year's songs, but I usually do that later in the year.

I'm back!

I'm excited to announce that I have finished the illustrations for the second book in the "What If" series. It should be out and ready to purchase April 1.  Or, if you'd like to pre-order it, click here.

Now that I am between books for a while, I'll have a chance to start doing some things for the new "Come Follow Me" curriculum.  I feel like my head is really out of the game though.  So, If you have any ideas for me, I'd love to hear them.

Last week in primary our chorister did an amazing job at teaching the kids the doctrine along with the scripture story in the song "Baptism" (Jesus came to John the Baptist) I really enjoyed it and couldn't help but picture things in my head along the way.  So, I came home from church and started drawing pictures for the song.  I'm not quite finished with the whole song yet.  But I think when I am finished, I'll give a free kit to anyone who sends me an idea for something to draw - whether I use the idea or not. REMEMBER TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL address so I can send the kit to you!

In the meantime, here is a freebie for you.  It's a pyramid of Activity Day girls.  Or, in a pinch I'm sure you could pretend they are young women or what ever kind of girls you need a pyramid for. :D

Thank you to all of you who left comments on my last post.  It was so encouraging to me and really gave me the boost I needed to keep going on my projects.  I truly appreciate it.   I can't wait to hear all your ideas!
