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.)
