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 LDS YW New Beginnings this year or for Girls Camp.

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

It is available ONLY to purchase on my etsy shop. For $5. Hope that is okay. It would be nice to make a little money off of it.

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.

I am planning to do GIRLS CAMP PACKETS too. So watch for it on my etsy shop. Follow me.

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.)

Much to do of course. But how very nice.

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.

Thank Full

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!

I have much to learn

I took a situation the wrong way the other day. Actually, what really happened is I was feeling sorry for myself and didn't realize that I was affecting others.

I am so imperfect.

Jase, it's your birthday.

It is your birthday today. Can't believe it has been so long since we have spoken. Or how long since I have given you some of those little eensy weensy pinches that you adore so much. Or that I somehow made you laugh. You are the one with all the clever little comments so it was always so fun when I got you to laugh.

I miss you, Jase. I truly believe and know you are doing great things. I can hardly believe it will be 5 years in April.

I hope Momma and Dad are giving you lots and lots of hugs today. And always. Give mom and dad a big hug for me. I have been really missing them this week.

Love you and happy birthday!!!

Just Grateful That I Get To Draw

It is SO fun to draw people. And wacky animals/people too.
