My Favorite Weekend

This is one of my two favorite weekends of the year. You see every 6 months my church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has a General Conference. At this conference the leaders of our church give us the messages that God would have us hear. I am always inspired. I must admit I also thoroughly enjoy having church beamed to me via Internet. Who doesn’t love church in their pajamas! Not having to get the three little monkeys ready to go for a 9am meeting is awesome too.  The church broadcasts two sessions on Saturday and two sessions on Sunday. I only had the chance to watch one session today, and I am looking forward to watching more tomorrow. If you want to watch, visit http://lds.org/general-conference?lang=eng . You can watch live at 10am and 2pm MST or you can tune in whenever you like to watch the archives. 

Last night when I was thinking about conference I felt the desire to create some products specifically for those of my faith. You don’t often see kits that include things for Young Women in Excellence, Priesthood ordinations, or Temple attendance. I want to make some great designs for these occasions. Today while listening to the Saturday morning session of conference I began working on a baptism scrapbook kit. I have grand plans to make several more kits as well as some beautiful wedding albums that center on the temple. Here’s a little preview of the papers for the Baptism kit.

Freebie Friday!

The Beginning

As I begin my adventures in the world of work from home mommyhood I am filled with apprehension and excitement. I have spent the last 8 years in the United States Marine Corps, a challenging job to say the least. Trying to work from home, go to school online, and take care of my babies will be even harder!

I am 26 years old and mother to three children. My boys are ages 6 and 3 months, and my girl is 18 months. My oldest son is from my first marriage (oh the drama I will spare you from!) and my two youngest are from my current (never to end!) marriage. A blended family, needless to say, only ads to the challenges I face as I embark on this journey.

My primary love in the graphic design world is digital scrapbooking. I design scrapbook pages as well as original embellishments. I also love to do the photo editing required to make a page wonderful. I have made a few full scrapbooking freebie kits and also do scrap for hire.

I am currently attending American Intercontinental University Online and majoring in Digital Design. I am really loving this university. My favorite thing is that they provide all books and computer programs that you need to complete your classes. So far I have received the computer programs Microsoft Office 2007, Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium. I have also received several useful books, my favorites are the Classroom in a Book for Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop, the Krause Idea Indexes, and Business and Legal Forms for Graphic Designers. I will complete my degree in June of 2010.

The first paid jobs I have completed have come through the Elance website. This is an AMAZING site. Anyone can post a job for hire on this site for FREE. Providers can then submit a bid on the job stating how they will complete it, in what time frame, and what they will charge. The Poster then chooses a provider to assign the job to. I have completed two jobs on this site and am looking for more. You can view my Elance profile at

And now the littlest is hollering to be fed so I guess I am done.
