Let the holiday prep begin! What?!

Dear Friends,

I cannot believe it is already November!! I've been very busy in the studio getting lots of things ready for the upcoming holiday shopping that is about to begin and for those early shoppers, I have a coupon code that can be used in either my shop or my Etsy shop. Be sure to enter THANKS15 at checkout and receive 15% off your order.

I have lots of wonderful items for all of the people on your list that are looking for something to help them re-visit their wonderful childhood memories in decorating their home with my
wall art prints. Such as this dandelion girl wall art print that was featured in Romantic Homes magazine



or this
little boy and the man in the moon art print, featured in Vanity Fair's Gift guide.



And for gifting those creative and crafty friends with my
adult coloring books. What better way to help get through the sometimes stressful holiday preparations than sitting down with a coloring book to get that relaxing therapy that is so needed at the end of a long day. In fact, I recently read an article  that stated, "The health benefits go beyond relaxation, and include exercising fine motor skills and training the brain to focus.

Doctors have known about these benefits since the early 1900s. Psychiatrist Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, prescribed coloring to his patients to calm and center their minds. Doctors today continue to follow Jung’s lead and still recommend the activity to combat anxiety.

The fact that coloring is structured activates the logic part of the brain, and generates a creative mindset, said New York-based clinical psychologist Dr. Ben Michaelis.

“Because it’s a centering activity, the amygdala, which is the part of the brain that is involved with our fear response, actually gets a bit, a little bit of a rest,” Michaelis said, “and it ultimately has a really calming effect over time.”

Be sure you check out my new short 2 minute video showing the interiors and more information about one of my favorite coloring books, The Adventures of Brandy and Emma that I offer by clicking on the video below.



And for those of you who send out Christmas cards and want to get started early this year, I have a very limited supply of boxed
Christmas Cards left in my Etsy shop. For more details follow the link by clicking on the photo.



In my family, we always read a favorite Christmas book as a family throughout the holiday season. Why not start a new tradition with
ON CHRISTMAS DAY, written by Margaret Wise Brown, author of the wonderful GOODNIGHT MOON and illustrated by me. I have a limited supply of the first edition copies in my shop and will sign each one that is ordered from there.




As we enter into that time of year at Thanksgiving, I want to say just how thankful I am for ALL of you, my wonderful supporters and friends here, that make it possible for me to do what I love and have the opportunity to share it with the world. How could I ask for more?  I am so grateful for each and every one of you!

Woohoo!!! They are here!!

Woohoo!!! They are here!! My second edition coloring books, the heART of childhood arrived! And wouldn't you know my strong husband was out of town on that day so I had to carry them all in by myself, lol! I certainly got my workout that day.




I am so pleased with how they turned out! Here is a quick video of me showing some of the interior pages.

I am offering FREE U.S. Shipping on the second edition but be sure to use the special coupon code
USShipFree at checkout. It doesn't matter if you get one book or 10 books. The shipping is still free (for those in the U.S.).  So sorry international friends! I am hoping to eventually find a way to get my book overseas. But for slightly more affordable international rates go to my Etsy shop here.

Be sure to check out some tips on coloring techniques in the videos on my Facebook page here and here.

I cannot thank you all enough, my wonderful community of friends
, for all of your encouragement and support through this whole coloring book project from the very beginning stages to now, my second printing!

On another note: I am now offering original watercolor paintings in my Etsy shop of this brand new illustration which is offered in both boy and girl options. I am also offering color art prints as well as sketch only prints with no color. Click on the image to read more information on each option.



I would be honored if you shared this link to my coloring book with your friends and family who might enjoy this new fun craze of adult coloring. It is so relaxing after a stressful day.



As always, thank you for being a part of our wonderful community. I am so grateful for each and every one of you!
