Calling all artists!

If scrapbooking isn't your thing, but drawing is, and you'd like to help Julianne and the girls at Lua Nova, keep reading. This might be the opportunity for you:

"I am in need of a skilled artist who would be willing to help me complete a book on maternity I am writing to teach the girls at Lua Nova about everything from pre-natal care to breastfeeding to educating older children. I will need around 50 simple line drawings (no color needed!) that educate and engage the girls around these various maternal health topics. I am currently writing the book, and will give very specific directions on each drawing needed. The process will be very collaborative and the bulk of the work will be completed in November-December, although we'll be evaluating and modifying the book all the way up until June of next year so I'll be asking for minor alterations or other drawings during that time as well. Unfortunately there is no remuneration involved, but the cause is great. There are currently no didactic materials on these issues available for the girls, and I'm trying to tailor the book to their very specific needs.

It's quite a big project that will require time and dedication, but if any of you have dormant art skills you wish you could use more, this is a great opportunity to tangibly help an at-risk group of young mothers! Please get in touch with me directly if you'd like to get involved:"

Thank you!

p.s. The scrapbooks have started arriving, and they are beautiful! Thank you to everyone who has made a scrapbook and sent it in. You are wonderful. If you haven't popped yours in the mail yet, there's still time! Can you get it to me by December 1st? You are the best!

  1. Steph, I sent Joojie 2 pkgs about 3 weeks ago and she still does not have them. Hope they will finally make it. You are doing such good projects!

  2. Hi Stephanie!
    Okay, so I've had my two scrapbooks sitting here finished for a week or so- and I'm needing to get them over to you. I live in Gilbert, and I was wondering if it might be possible for me to come and drop them off to you instead of driving to the post office and paying for shipping. Would that be something that you would be comfortable with? This week I'll be heading over to Mesa (to go to the temple) either Thursday or Friday morning- would one of those days happen to work for you? ANyway, just email me and let me know what you'd rather me do. I'm not wanting to inconvenience you...
    Thank you so much for letting us know about this project! I had so much fun doing it and was so grateful for the opportunity!!
    Tiffany :)

  5. Yay - I'm so glad you extended the deadline. Our YW completed a few books, but I have a couple girls who wanted to do more for one of their Personal Progress projects, but I thought we were out of time. They will be so glad - and I will have them to you by December 1st. Thanks!

  6. I am finishing up mine hopefully this weekend, but it is nice to have a bit more time. With the holidays, I am feeling pretty busy :)
