Which temple is "Your" temple?



One of my favorite things about this little blog of mine is all the people I get to 'meet'.  From people just down the street to people on the other side of the world.  I've been wanting to do something to honor all of you.  I've been working on drawing the temples for the places where I've 'met' people.  The problem is that I'm a very forgetful person, and I've never kept any kind of list.  So - If you would like me to draw "your" temple, please leave a comment.  I haven't decided yet whether or not to put these images on my blog or to make them a kit for my Etsy shop.  Either way, if you leave your name and email address with your comment I will send you a picture of your temple when I finish drawing it. These are the only two I've done so far. :)

I love your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with all of us. I would love either the Alberta temple (Cardston or the Houston temple. My husband and I grew up in Cardston and were married in that temple, but now live in Houston. Each temple is beautiful!

Hmm... I received my endowment in the Jordan River Temple and I was married in the Boise Temple, but we recently moved to Kaysville from St. George after 11 years and I really miss the SG Temple, although I really do LOVE both the Bountiful and Ogden Temples. My first choice for my wedding would have been Manti (if it weren't so impractical)... but I suppose Boise would have to be "my" temple because it is where I was sealed to my sweetheart.❤️���� Thank you for sharing your talents so freely!

I'm in the Manti, Utah district. We moved to the district a year ago and it's like we've come full circle. I had pioneer ancestors that settled in the area and my parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and great-great grandparents were sealed there. Making it an obvious choice when I got married :) however, I never thought I'd live 5 minutes away from it! So now it's really "my" temple!
Thank you for your amazing work you are so generous with!!!

You are so super talented. I love seeing your illustrations of the temples. I grew up loving the SLC temple, but moved to Columbia, SC almost 9 years ago. I love the serenity I find when we go there. I would love to see your drawing of it!

My temple is San Diego! I was a child when it was built and the names of all the Primary children in the area were placed in the cornerstone. My name is among them. :-) Thanks for all your lovely drawings!

My temple is the Washington D.C. temple but a close second is the Manhattan, New York temple. Manhattan temple doesn't photograph very easily because of its surroundings so your talent would bring it to life in illustration!

Gabriela Babb said...

Mine is the Logan Utah temple. That's where I got sealed. I was asked by some non LDS friends how did I do to get married in such a castle! My answer: it was free, I know the owner. Since then it's been a started conversation with those that don't know what temples are!

I love all your work. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. My husband and I were married in The Los Angeles, Ca temple. There are very few pictures of the temple I love. I feel like they always emphasis the flags and I want to focus on the temple.

Vernal, Utah Temple.
It is so beautiful and unique with the red/orange large stones.

Also, if you do the Mesa, Arizona Temple for the person who commented ahead of me, I would love that one too. That is where I use to live & went through for my first time.

Susan love your work. Been following you blog for awhile now. The Ogden,Utah temples is my Temple :)

Susan,

You are Have a very generous heart. I have a daughter who is
autistic. She was able to tour the Payson Temple during
its open house and calls it the "Crystal Temple". That
would be her favorite and I would love to frame it for her.

I am also using your art to make visuals to help another
autistic daughter teach her Sunbeam class.

Thank you so much for sharing your talent with my family.

(If you print this, could you delete my name? You are
welcome to contact me though.)

Stanton said...

Hi Sue! I was missing your artwork and had to stop by this morning to see what you were up to! My temple is the Logan temple. Both sets of my grandparents were sealed there, my parents were sealed there, and my sweetheart and I were sealed there. And now we live here. It has a very special place in my heart.

On a side note, have you considered using Instagram to display your art and direct people to your blog? I think it would be an awesome place for you to display!

Love, Julie Allen

Your talent is so amazing - Thank you for sharing!
My favorite Temple is the Seattle Temple... I was there when it was built, received my endowments there prior to serving my Mission, then sealed to my husband there as well. It has such precious memories for me.

I would also love the Boise and Meridian ID temples. The Boise is my Temple (I was 3 years old when it was dedicated and remember going through the open house), and the Meridian is being built just down the road from me and I've watched it being built with my family! We love it. Your artwork is beautiful. Thanks! natricia@anythingwireless.net

That's so awesome! I just downloaded about 7 sets from your Etsy Shop for our community's 5 Ward Super Saturday....I'm so excited!

I was married in the Bountiful Temple and yet WYOMING is getting our first temple, the Star Valley Wyoming Temple....either one would be wonderful!

And, you should totally start selling a North America Temple set or let people buy individual ones....your work is amazing!
Thanks!

I was married in the Mesa AZ temple, but we are military, so "our" temples have been San Antonio, Frankfurt Germany, Gila Valley AZ, Mt Timpanogos UT, and now Columbia SC.
