I’m Back!

Hello Dear Followers,

It has been several months since my last blog posting. This summer was devoted to my ailing mother who has been in hospice care. She quietly passed away on September 3rd shortly after her 98th birthday. I am dedicating my fourth coloring book to my mother, whom was a strong, loving, beautiful and family devoted woman. She set a high standard for me as a mother and as a woman, living by herself all these years. I miss her strength and love daily but know she is now in Heaven with my father, who passed 20 years ago. They are finally reunited.

Parrot Drawing Progress

Now, I am focusing on completing my fourth coloring book titled Mild Things of the World with the goal of publishing it before the end of this year. Here is an image of a colorful parrot shown with the drawing in progress. I love the vibrant colors of the parrot against the background of large flowers. This was a very fun and enjoyable drawing and one I hope you will enjoy coloring, as well.

We are now into the fall season which brings the scent of cinnamon, pumpkin, apples, piles of falling leaves and cooler temperatures. I look forward to our first fire in our fireplace and cozying up with some hot chocolate and my doggie-dog, Tai. As my husband, Mark, says, “Life is what happens when you are planning something else.” So, I just look forward to what each new day will bring and savor it and leave the future to our Lord.

Children’s Coloring and Activity Book: “Wild Things for Kids”

Good Morning,

Sample pages from kids bookMy third coloring book, a children’s coloring and activities book, Wild Things for Kids, was published on June 8th this summer. We have had a tremendous response. We are excited to share with those from ages 8 to 100 years (and anyone else!) who wants to curl up for hours of fun. If you have our first two books, Wild Things of the World and Wild Things of the Ocean, Lakes and Streams you can color along with your children (and/or other adults) and enjoy the fun together. Wild Things for Kids is also an educational tool, as well, by using the activities and animal descriptions as a learning experience for your children.

My husband and business partner, Mark, actually colored all of the final drawings shown on the cover and on the back. He spent hours coloring each image and actually said he lost all sense of time when engaged in them. It is a great way to un-stress in our busy world.

Check it out!
