Christmas Freebie

A friend asked for an 8×10 of this print that I shared on my personal blog. I thought I’d share it here for y’all to enjoy. Be sure to click on the image to make it larger… then right click ‘save as…’

Last year I posted a Santa Quote, if you’re looking for some inspiration on how to explain Santa to little ones.

Merry Christmas!

‘We Can Do Hard Things’ Freebie

The Good News: Today I’m sharing a Subway Art freebie.

The Bad News: It’s a peace-offering since I’m not going to reopen the SFD Digital Store this year.

You see… My life is full… full of good things, but I’m having to adjust and prioritize. My fun side-business has to be put on the back burner for a long while. I was asked to be the President of the Relief Society in our local church congregation a few weeks ago, which makes my life a wee bit more full.

This quote, “We Can Do Hard Things” is my new mantra. I love it! It reminds me that I can make it through hard things with my spouse, my family, my friends, and most importantly… my Heavenly Father. I know I am strengthened by Him daily. Everyone has hard things… everyone. We need each other. I even remind my 3-year-old that HE CAN DO HARD THINGS… like pulling up his pants or cleaning up his room or eating 3 bites of that nasty dinner. This quote applies to all.

16×20 & 8×10 We Can Do Hard Things

4×6 We Can Do Hard Things

5×7 We Can Do Hard Things

p.s. I do have to apologize that all the images I shared are pretty random. There is no consistent color scheme in all the sizes and on some images there is a scripture from Alma 26:12… and others, a scripture from Mark 10:27. What can I say… I’m a spaz sometimes? Hopefully you’ll find one to enjoy… and another to share with a friend.

p.p.s. 16×20 prints well in an 8×10 size… so don’t let that frighten you – the dimensions are the same. Also… for your convenience the 3×4 cards are designed to print two-up on a 4×6 print.

p.p.p.s. quiet books… the LDS Intellectual Properties department has NOT given us the go-ahead with sharing the quiet books. I’m sad… like really sad. I’m not able to email the books to anyone. Sad. Someday, if I ever have the time, I’d love to offer them with text only and share the links to images on so you can create your own. sigh…

Most of All… Remember that
WE Can Do Hard Things!

Our newest addition

We welcomed Eliza Ruth to our family on August 15. She weighed in at just under 7 lbs. She is a sweet little soul and we are enjoying those newborn snuggles.

I’m not sure when I’ll have the digital store up and running again. Five tots under the age of 8 is keeping me a bit busy. I’ll post updates when I have them. Thanks for your support.

Up… down… and all around

This is my life lately.
The digital subway art store has been up for a week. Yay!
But as of today we took the store down. Boo!

But a little thing called PREECLAMPSIA has entered my life in my 34th week of pregnancy. Hence… I’m slowing down… way down. A dear friend reminded me that it’s easier to say NO to things when you have something inside strongly saying “YES!” to other priorities… as in YES to healthy mother/baby/family. We’ll see how things go, but I’m not planning on doing much on Simply Fresh Designs until the late fall. Check back before Christmas and we’ll see if we can have a few things up and running.

Update on Quiet Books: A lot of you have asked if I can email the quiet book images to you. I’m afraid this still violates the Church’s Terms of Use (transmitting electronically). Boo! The good news is that my husband has started submitting some of the quiet books for church approval… so I’ll let y’all know how that goes when we hear back from the Intellectual Properties Department.
