Drawing drawing drawing...

So I did some artwork a few years ago and thought I'd see if is is sellable. Is that a word? I just added a little book with some bible illustrations... with 10 illustrations. I like the style. It is in my Etsy shop.

I will add artwork as I go. It's been fun so far.

LDS Young Women Value Girls

So I always thought this was a good idea. Put it out on my etsy shop. I hope people will like them.
The link is in my earlier post. Just a fun idea for handouts and posters and binders and decorating the LDS YW room or for passing off a value. At least I thought so.; ) Hope you like them too!

Owl with book

So I created this artwork of this "owl with a book" back in 2009. A couple of people/companies have approached me to have permission to use it.  But I am finding more and more that people/organizations are not asking permission. I just hope they aren't taking credit for it. Or getting paid for it. Since I have never been paid for it. Oh I also found out that someone placed it on a couple of FREE clipart sites. Oh yay. Again they did it without asking. Love that.

Just putting that out there.

I think it is a cute owl.

I appreciate David Hepp from the Marion Library actually being honest and contacting me.

Thank you for the honest people in the world.

New Beginnings Cruise artwork

Perfect for the LDS YW New Beginnings this year.

Boarding passes, a poster, name tags, and "ports of interest" posters.

If you would like to download the files...go to

Check out the
Sunday, January 23, 2011 post if you are interested in seeing most of the pieces.

The bishop was the captain. The cruise director was the YW president and she welcomed everyone especially the new beehives. Talked about how each of us have our own journey and living the 8 values brings us safely back to our Heavenly Father. Our presidency all dressed in white shirts and dark pants or skirts. We taped up the "ports of interest" signs at the doors of different classrooms and then we divided up the values with the girls and the whole group moved from room to room and each value was explained. and the girls talked about what each value meant to them.

Then we met back in the cultural hall and the "captain" spoke and ended the evening. with a blessing on the refreshments and we had cruise-type refreshments. but that is up to you.

Hope this works out for everyone.

Please leave comments. I would love to know what you think. And please don't post the file on your own webpage but instead refer people to the link.


BTW- watch for my Etsy shop Buttercup Sketches. Hopefully opening soon. I have an idea for the YW Values.

Also a lot of people are asking if they want to make a donation, you're welcome to go through paypal and my email if you would like but no obligations.

Mom and Dad

They didn't know each other at this age but I thought it would be fun to sit them together. 

Love you, mom and dad. Couldn't have asked for better. Thank you for all you have taught me. I hope I am continually working at living up to what you stand for.

(My dad looks so Finnish I think. But then he is.)

Ha ha.

Sometimes I have random thoughts. Would be funny to have a bunch of jungle animals and said," Safari, so good." Get it? Hehe.

I apparently like to amuse myself.

I am very thank FULL. Just a lot to be grateful for. Beautiful sunny days. Good health. Amazing sibs and family. A job that pays my bills and feeds me and puts a roof over my head. Sweet friends. The gospel. The very air I breathe.

Much to be thankful for.

So Many Blessings

I did some service this morning for my church and it just reminded me of how many blessings I have in my life because of what my beliefs are. I am also SO grateful for the family that I have and for the people I know.

Happy Eeyore Day! Glad to be getting rain. Though from the wind and rain we have gotten lately, the shingles that have fallen off my roof aren't a fun thing. Makes things exciting!!! ; ) I hope I can get it fixed soon.

The grass looks so vibrant emerald. Love that.

Happy Saturday!
