My new children's book, "My Nativity ABCs" was featured in the Deseret Book Christmas catalog as well as Utah Valley Magazine. While this is a totally awesome thing, it might have also contributed to the reason why my book is sold out in most of the the Utah local stores (Deseret Book, Seagull Book, and Costco) on Black Friday weekend!!!

The good news: My publisher ordered a second print run and it arrived in my publisher's warehouse on November 22. I'm guessing this means a holiday delay in getting the books from the warehouse to local stores but in the meantime, you can find me online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-a-million, Target, Wal-mart, and more.

General Conference Cards

This is a project that I've been working on for the children in my church group. Every six months, leader from our church meet together from around the world and give talks at a meeting called General Conference. The talks are broadcast around the world. Each one of these cards represents one of the talks.

Me: My autobiographical doodles

Sometimes my doodles turn into indignant monsters and stubborn birds. Sometimes I just draw about stuff I like to do.




And sometimes I have a really bad day and the only thing good that came of it is that apparently, I'm one of those angsty artists that creates more when I'm upset. Who knew.  The source of my trouble that day was wearing a striped shirt. You can tell by the pressure of the pen strokes that I was not happy ... (and to clarify, this was not my amazing, supportive husband. He is my rock.)!


I started a new Instagram account this week. Follow me @ iliketocreatestuff

This is how I take notes during General Conference

I have been happily surprised by the interest in my notes from General Conference. I have been taking notes this way for years. You are welcome to download as a jpg to print.

Button Globe

Just one of my perpetual projects.

I fill in an empty spot whenever I run into the right button.

I could use a few more small and flat buttons in blue or white ...
