 Hello Friends! It would appear that I am growing up a little and becoming more of a real artist. Life is getting busier and messier and I'm trying to streamline things and get all my bases covered. It has come to my attention that I need to have some actual shop policies and legal things in place.  So please forgive the boring stuff in the rest of this post.  It is necessary.  These are my newly updated Terms of Use. You may notice that I have stopped allowing any commercial (for profit) use of my artwork. Thank you all for supporting me and my little Etsy shop over all these years. I love you all!

Freebies....and a new baptism set.

 I recently received a request to do some male choristers to add to my primary clip art set.  Here they are.

to download them for free!

I also just finished a new baptism set.  It's kind of an object lesson using printables.  It comes with the whole lesson/talk written out for you.  This is the talk I give any time I'm asked to speak at a baptism.  I've also used it in primary.  It has been a success for me every time.  Last time I used it was in a 4 year old class.  They thought it was magic!  I gave them each their own set to take home and teach their family.  Of course, they also get to eat the pudding cup you use with it.  That's always a bonus. 

If you'd like to win this set, leave a comment with your name and email address.  I will draw out 3 winners next Saturday, Feb 12.  If you don't leave your email address I can't send it to you and I'll choose someone else. Thank you all for supporting me! I hope you like this one as much as I do.

Plans for the New Year, and a GIVE AWAY!


My calling for the past several years has been in the young women.  I've sat through more planning meetings than I can count.  Meetings aren't anybody's favorite thing, but something bright and cute to look at always helps me.  

I just added this new set to my Etsy Shop.  It is a set of planning calendars. The calendars come blank so you can put them together and use them for whatever month you want, and you can use them for years to come.

I always love all the cute little stickers that you can get for planners these days, but I haven't seen any with LDS stuff on them, like going to the temple, or a fireside or something.  I want my church life to be cute too! So, I had a lot of fun making my own stickers for all things LDS.  I guess I shouldn't say all things because there are a lot more that I could have drawn.  But I had to stop somewhere to keep the size of the set manageable for Etsy. Take a look at the Etsy listing and let me know which ones I've missed that you think I definitely need to add. 

You can either build these digitally in the computer, then print them out, or print first and print the pictures onto sticker paper and cut them out before putting them on. I think the Young Women would have fun decorating their own calendars with stickers, but cutting them out would be a lot of work. 

Anyway, I'll be doing a drawing to give away 3 sets of these awesome planning calendars.  I will do the drawing on Saturday January 14. That's a little over a week away. To enter the drawing, just leave a comment with your name and email address.  Tell me what your plans are for this coming year.  My main goals are to declutter my home and to build a website to use instead of this old blog. :D 

You can use the coupon code BUNDLE in my shop to get any 3 sets for 20% off until the end of February.

New Testament, new drawings.

 I have a new set in my shop. It's a small collection of New Testament characters.  Many of them can be found in various other sets, but a few of them are new and unique to this set.  That doesn't mean they won't show up in future sets though.  I'm trying to do more New Testament for this year's Come Follow Me curriculum.  I'm not doing a give away for this set, but I am running a promo in my shop.  If you use the promo code BUNDLE on any three sets you can get 20% off.  Let me know if you're really sad that there isn't a giveaway drawing. 

Winter can be hard for me. I tend to lose my mojo. I've mentioned before that I have chronic depression. Having less light in the winter gets to me.  I'm doing fine right now, but I worry that having moved to a colder darker climate, that this year might be harder than usual. I usually hit a big slump more towards February and March.  So, I'm working hard now on a lot of projects in order to keep my serotonin levels up. I often use drawing as a tool for that.  I got a 'therapy lamp' for Christmas and I hope that will help.  I'm also trying to eat healthy, get good sleep and exercise.  Along with medication, all those things help to keep me functional. 

What about you? Does the winter get you down? Or are you like me and have to try to balance mental illness in your life every day?  I've noticed that the amount of sugar I eat has a lot to do with how I feel. What have you found that works (or doesn't) for you?

What ever you deal with in your world, I hope you had a Merry Christmas and that you'll have your best New Year yet.

When We Seek Him - Flip chart GIVE AWAY!


Are you ready for the holidays? I'm certainly not. I'm not much of a holiday planner. Besides, I've already had my Christmas present. I got to take a bucket-list trip to Ireland a few weeks ago.  My ancestors come from Ireland and I've always wanted to go. It was amazing! I even got to kiss the Blarney Stone.  I was glad to find out that they clean it between each person.  I've always wondered about that. 

 I just finished making this flip chart for Shawna Edwards' song "When We Seek Him". I don't have the copyright for the words, so I couldn't put those on the chart to sell.  However, I did make the pictures to go along with the words and I left room at the bottom of each page so that you can write in the words yourself.  If you have purchased the music to teach it you should be able to make charts and things to help teach it. You can get this set in my Etsy shop. Be sure to use the coupon code HOLIDAY to get 20% off your entire purchase until the new year. 

Because there are other Christmas songs that many of you are teaching, I am also going to make a Christmas edition Flip Chart Buddy set with a random collection of all the artwork I've made that I think you could possibly use in making a flip chart for a Christmas song.  I hope to have that done in the next several days.  If there's something specific you need in a set like that, let me know! 

As always, I will be drawing three names to give a free set to.  I will draw the names next Saturday, December 3. If you would like to enter to win, just leave a comment below telling me the #1 place you'd like to go on a trip. Remember to leave your name and your email address.  If you don't leave your email address, I won't be able to send the files to you and I'll draw someone else's name.

Something New

 Hello Friends! I hope you are doing well and staying warm.  Here in Idaho the cold weather came a couple weeks ago and I don't think I've felt warm since.  It's sunk deep down into my bones. It's probably not that bad, but ever since my mission, out tracting in the wet and frigid winter of upstate New York, I have a much lower tolerance for cold weather. It's probably PTSD or something. 

Anyway, I wanted to share with you something new that I'm trying out.

It's Print-On-Demand merchandise.  I just upload my art to their site and they create these nice mock-up pictures that you see here.  Then I can make a listing in my Etsy shop and if anyone chooses to purchase something, the POD company prints it up and ships it out for me. 

Since it's print-on-demand, I don't actually have any samples to send out, so I can't do a drawing or a give-away this time.  But, I thought it would be fun to share with you what I'm doing.  I think they look fabulous.  It makes me feel really fancy to see my artwork on tangible objects. And, THESE WILL MAKE GREAT GIFTS!

I'm not sure if I will do more of this kind of thing or not. (I could make tote bags, clothing, phone cases, fabric, gift wrap, pretty much anything you can think of.)  It depends on whether or not you all seem to like them and want them.  I tried to keep the price as low as I could, but with another company involved in manufacturing and shipping, I don't have much control over that.  They are $9 each. Let me know what you think. Is it worth the cost? Are there other products you'd like to see my art on?  

Thanks again for all your encouragement and support. And, Good Luck with everything as we're jumping into the holidays! You can do it!!!

Clip Art of Primary!

 I just finished a new set of Primary clip art.  It's got teachers and choristers, and of course - LOTS of kids! I imagine it being used for flyers about activities, primary programs, and stuff like that.  But I know that there are a lot of you out there who are really creative.  I can't wait to see what you all will use these cute illustrations for. 

As usual, I will be giving away 3 free copies of this set. Just leave a comment with your name and email address. I will draw three names next Saturday, September 10.  If I don't have your email I can't send the files to you and I'll have to pick another name, so remember to include your email! 

Last time I asked for your comments about mice and things you are scared of.  I enjoyed your comments so much! I could relate to them all. For some reason I can't comment directly to your comments (maybe I just don't know how?).  But I enjoyed them very much.  The mice saga continues here in the new house. Today - my husband found that mice have been in my CAR!!!! The kids left a bunch of candy in the glove box and the mice have had a field day.  How will I ever drive again?! ugh.
