Women in the Book of Mormon (Check out my new kit!)




I just got these cute drawings loaded up for sale in the Etsy shop.  What do you think?  I like the way they turned out.  It's been a good learning experience for me to draw these and think about who these people were, what they would wear, where they lived, what they ate, etc.   The scriptures have come alive for me in a different way than before.  Maybe everyone should have to illustrate scripture characters. :)  Needless to say, I have enjoyed this project.

As always, I will be giving away three free kits.  If you want one, enter your name and email address in the comments.  I will randomly draw three winners next Saturday Feb 20.  Thanks, and Good Luck!

Help?

As many of you know, I've been working on a new kit with Women in the Book of Mormon.  I've got Sariah, Abish & Lamoni's queen (together) and the mothers of the stripling warriors.  I'd like one more character at least, but there aren't any other specific women stories that I can think of.  (can you?)  There are MANY stories of women in general.  I think nearly every story in the book speaks of women in general.  But I'm not quite sure how to draw that.  I'm wondering if it would work to do a generic Nephite or Lamanite woman, or if I should do "The women baptized in the waters of Mormon" or "The women who listened to King Benjamin" or something like that.  What do you think?

I'd like your opinion please...

I know that a lot of primaries are focusing on scripture stories and scripture characters this year.  I am working on a set of clip art featuring women in the scriptures right now. (I'll probably continue with more scripture characters as well)   My question for those of you who might be using this is whether or not I should include background scenery for these characters like I did with the "Follow the Prophet" sets.   What do you think?

Merry Christmas! 2016

 Mary & Joseph
 Mary & Child

Young Mary



I stayed up way too late last night!  For the first time in forever, I was drawing just for fun.  No projects or purpose.  Just for fun.  And I got a little carried away.  I drew these three nativity themed illustrations.  I don't have anything to use them for, but I thought you might.  I guess they could work as Christmas tags....Or who knows what else.

Reverence Tag

I heard of a little game that some primaries like to play called "Reverence Tag"  As the children come into the primary room, one of the presidency 'tags' a child with a badge to stand reverently at the front of the room as a 'reverent child'.  That child in turn watches the other children and passes the badge on to 'tag' someone else to stand at the front reverently.  Camille from Camille's Primary Ideas suggested that I make some badges for the Reverence Tag game.  I thought it was a pretty good idea, so - Here they are!  Enjoy!

2016 Primary Book Marks


2016 Primary Book Marks "I Know The Scriptures Are True"




I've also had some requests for just the kids without the bookmark.  Here they are:



If you follow this blog regularly, you know that I am always behind schedule.  I wanted to have a whole set of things done for the 2016 primary theme back in September or October.  Here it is December and I'm just now posting some bookmarks.  I HOPE there will be more coming.  Life just seems to get more and more hectic for me.  Anyway - These are printable and ready to go.  There is extra space up top for you to punch a hole and put ribbon through or write something.  If you don't want to do either of those things, just trim it off.  There is also a spanish version that my sweetheart translated for me. Enjoy!
