Hope everyone had a great weekend! :) 

I got to go to Twin Falls Idaho for my husband's cousin's reception.  That was so much fun seeing Jesse's family and his Grandparents! Get to see them again this coming weekend for General Conference! :-[)


On Friday I came across this fantastic Etsy shop : NancyIllustration that sells prints of her graphite drawings of 50 high school seniors from a 1960's high school yearbook.  I love how precise her lines are with each stroke. Plus I love graphite, one of my favorite mediums!

The portrait to the left reminded me soooo much of Jesse! 


One thing I don't really talk about much is my job, not because I want to keep it super private [well yes, I kind of do actually] but because this blog is mostly about design : all sorts.  However, this past Friday, something to do with my job involving design did happen.  When I started at DownEast Outfitters last summer, I was actually hired as an assistant designer. I now work on the home side [long story] - but within those few short months that I was with clothing, I got to design some prints for their newly acquired swim line Modbe. Here are the swimsuits, with the prints I made, now in stores and soon to be available online. :)

I am sure you have all heard by now the new Broadway play about the Book of Mormon - created
by the creators of South Park. With that said, you can tell that the play is obviously a mockery of the book. 
When the LDS church was asked to give a statement regarding this new play, this is what they said:

"The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but the Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people's lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ."

I LOOOOOOOVE being part of the LDS institution for statements like that!  The media wants sooooo badly for the Mormon church to get annoyed and respond back with a snotty reply or whatever, but they always keep it classy! 

If you are interested to know why the LDS church makes clear and concise statements as such, go read this  article titled: "The Publicity Dilemma" [ I just came across this right now] This article will help you be politically correct regarding the LDS church, if you wish to do so. :)

To end: This video makes me cry every time I see it.  For those who are reading this who are not LDS [Mormon] and just don't get the LDS religion. That is okay, I am never going to try and convince anyone to join ANYTHING that they don't want to but I will try and help those around me with different faiths or non-faiths understand what it is about this Faith that I love so much.  And it is exactly what the LDS church said up above "it will change lives forever" <- and it is a good change.  :)
