Reverently Singing Children

These reverently singing children were made for a primary chorister in Bountiful, Utah.  As the primary children come into the primary room she has them hum, ooh or aah to a primary song.    They struggle to keeping their arms folded while singing.  They want to make the same actions she is making in leading the music.  So she asked me to make these for her to visually remind them to fold their arms.  I hope they will work for her.  You can try them out too.  I'm sure there are many ways you can use them.  Each one is 8.5 x 11"

Give Away WInners

First of All, I want to say thank you to all of you who enter my Give-Away drawings.  I love to feel like I'm doing something fun and a little special.  In a small way these give-aways fulfill my secret desire to be like Oprah when she gives away all her favorite stuff.  I'm not as cool or as famous as Oprah, and I don't really want to be.  But I have always loved her give away shows and thought it would be so much fun to be able to give people really neat things and make them happy......Anyway.  I'm just rambling now. 

The winners of the Give Away are as follows:

"Harping Around" has won the "Drop by Drop" pack
"Scattered Brain"  has won the "Fill-In-The-Blank Thank You Cards"
and "Ashley" has won the "Sweet" clip art. 

Your prizes have already been sent, so check your email!  And Thanks to the rest of you for entering.  Keep watching for more give aways and free clip art here!

Another Give Away!



I've put a few new things in the Etsy shop, so of course I'm doing a give away on the blog. Let me tell you what they are:
  1. Fill-in-the-blank thank you cards.  I originally did these for my kids.  I thought it would be an easy way to get them to write thank you's and learn how to do it at the same time.  The etiquette guide I referenced at the time said you should name what you are thankful for, and tell a reason why, or tell how you have used it etc.
  2. Sweet Clip Art.  This is just the clip art I used to make this version of thank you cards.  I figured it might be helpful for someone putting on a bake sale or something. It's a small set. Only 4 illustrations.
  3. Drop By Drop.  This one came about totally by accident.  An old friend of mine asked if I had any illustrations of the 10 virgins.  Her stake primary was doing an activity days activity based on it.  I didn't have anything like that, but decided to make one for her.  So I did.  About a week later, my sister asked the same thing - except her activity was for Relief Society.  She's the one who gave the Drop by Drop title and asked for the bookmarks & scripture reading chart. I thought that if both of them needed this illustration, others might need it too.  It's another small packet.  It's got the 10 virgin illustration.  The illustration put into bookmarks that can be printed as a 5x7 then cut into two.  The Drop by Drop logo, and the lamp shaped scripture reading chart.  It's got one 'drop' to fill in for each day of the year.
If you'd like to enter the give away for any of the three, just leave a comment with your email, and tell me which one you want.  I'll be giving away one of each. I will draw names one week from today which is Saturday July 5.

A few random drawings....


CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD this Priesthood holder



CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD the 10 commandments tablets



CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD Jesus and John the Baptist

It came to my attention that some of you could use the commandment tablets and John the Baptist for making singing time flip charts for the primary baptism song on page 100 of the Children's song book.  I have to admit that this illustration of the Savior and John the Baptist is not my favorite.  I've been wanting to re-do it.  But since you may be able to get some use out of it (whether I like it or not)  I'm posting it for you.  Enjoy! You can also click on the ideas & inspiration tab up top to see how these were used in a primary flip chart.

I thought I had figured out the issue with the backgrounds showing up gray in blogger.  Apparently I didn't.

New Job Chart GIVE AWAY!


I've been working on this one for months.  But now that summer is here and my little minions will be home all the time, I knew I needed to get this job chart finished so they can help me keep up on the housework.

I've put this kit in two versions in my Etsy shop.  One version is just the clip art - so you can make your own job charts.  The other version is a set of cards already put together and ready to print out.  I'll be giving away one of each version.  Just leave a comment and tell me which one you'd like.  I'll draw a random name from the comments list one week from today - Saturday June 14th- and announce the winner here.  Just like before, I'll need to email it to you, so either leave your email in the comment, or pay close attention to the announcement.  If I can't email the winner's kit within a few days, I will choose a new winner.

Observe & Serve (new and improved!)

I made this for my Visiting Teaching this month.  The message comes from a general conference talk given by Linda K. Burton.  The Visiting Teaching message on the church's website also has a quote from David L. Beck about rescuing souls.  If you'd like to use this for your Visiting Teaching handout,
