Help Wanted.....

I know that not every primary chorister likes to use flip charts.  But for those of you who do - I am working on another "Flip Chart Buddy" kit full of clip art to use in making your own flip charts.  A big multi purpose sort of kit.

Like the first "Flip Chart Buddy" set, I want it to have a good variety of standard things like Heavenly Father and Jesus, prayer, the temple, etc.  But I'd also like to expand and do some things that perhaps the first set is missing.

If you have any suggestions for me, I would very much appreciate them.  Please leave a comment! (or two, or three) Of course, I will be doing a give away when the set is complete, but I want to make it worth your while to help me here.  So - if you leave a suggestion, please also leave your email address.  If I end up using your suggestion I will send you a free file of the thing you suggested.

And, Just in case you aren't familiar with the first "Flip Chart Buddy" Set, here it is for you to take a look at:

Thanks in advance for all your help.  And HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I love everything you do and turn to your photos and website and Etsy site before I create any flip chart or visual for primary. I've been a chorister for 5 years now. Lately I've been in need of a visual for heaven... like bright light coming through clouds or something? Thanks for continuously sharing your talents. -Tamra tamra.mcdearmon@gmail

Your first collection is my best friend! I love everything in it! But I often find myself wanting a speaking mouth for "speak" or "talk." I've used pictures of people giving talks in church, but I think it would be much clearer with just a talking mouth. :)

Susan, thanks for asking! I love your work!!!

I have a really hard time finding/making visual aids for the Holy Ghost. I've only been able to find one, and it was just a shadowy outline of a person. It would be really great to have an illustration of a "personage of spirit" to use!

Another would be the concept of following. It would be great to have more ways to show "following Jesus Christ."

Another: "choose" and "choice"

And for this, I need help finding a pictoral representation of Agency!

Susan, thanks a lot for the help.

I often have troubles to ilustrate the words "choose" or "choice"

Also I need something to teach junior primary the concept of Agency, it will have to be something really easy to understand because of this year theme.

I live in Mexico, and I want you to know that your talent bless people in many places of teh world. Your ilustrations are a language we can all understand.
Thank you!

Me da mucho gusto a leer su mensaje. Mi esposo servio una mision en Puebla, Mexico.

I would second (or third) the inclusion of visuals for the Holy Ghost and something that illustrates "choice " or "choose." Oh and I would second something that illustrated "following." One thing I would like to see that I hasn't been mentioned would be something to indicate power and/or strength (Batteries? Muscle arms? Something better that I can't think of?).

Your art is fantastic and it is awesome that you are asking for input on what to include!

Susan said...

If you didn't leave your email address here for me, please do! I have decided to send a free kit to each of the five of you who have given me suggestions! Thank you!

DAB said...

Thanks Susan!!! I can't wait!!!!

Feel free to ask my advice ANYTIME!


Tam said...

Thank you so much for being so kind and again for sharing your amazing talent! These images will go to GOOD USE!! -Tamra

Antoinette said...

You are the nicest! I just saw the art for the second kit and I LOVE it! I'm already planning how to use it!

I've purchased both your chorister kits and taught the entire song with your images (only had to supplement with a random picture of a life jacket for "I feel so safe" and a big, yellow smiley face for "happy." I didn't use them for flip charts, but instead put the images on the chalkboard and let the kids take one down after each time we sang through it.

Your images are so cute and accurately portray what so many songs are trying to teach. Between the two kits I have so many great images! Thank you!

I would love something to show the Holy Ghost. I would also like some difference pictures to designate "choosing" rather than the traditional CTR shield!

I'm always on the look out for different ethnicities of people to use in my flip charts. We have lots of different non-white children in our primary and it is hard to find clip art of kids that aren't blonde and light skinned, both boys and girls. Thanks!

Love your work and have used it many times. Would love to have more animals like dogs, cats, birds etc. Thanks for asking.

Suzanne said...

How about people from the Book of Mormon: Nephi, Alma, Helaman, Moroni.
A pathway "the straight and narrow" and a gate to represent good choices...and then the opposite: something that shows the consequence or "other path"

Pictures depicting kids doing Service

Also, something that shows "before" or "behind"

Primary children being reverent

I LOVE your artwork. Thank you for all your work. There has been so many times I had wished for certain pictures and now I don't remember most of them. So that being said, here is an idea that I am remembering. Pictures with facial emotions, sad, thoughtful, happy, scared, etc. The other I am thinking of maybe a few more animals. Frogs are great for leap year, birds and nests (I saw a great activity helping birds get to their nests and when I went to the place to buy the pictures they no longer carried them), etc. I'll try to think of the rest.
