2013: The Year in Review

Wow, 2013, what a year! 

Every day I wake up and focus on what needs to be done that day.  It is rare that I stop to think about what has already been done, what I've already accomplished.  As I looked through my photos from 2013, I realized just how much got done while I was focusing on the day to day business.  Here's a look, in photos, of some of great things that happened in 2013!  Click on the images for descriptions!

I'm headed back to Alt Summit next week!  I can't wait!  And I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store.  I have BIG plans for this great new year!  I hope your new year is off to a fantastic start!!

Volume Two! Let's Get Coloring!

Hi guys!   The Pattern and Design Coloring Book, Volume Two is here, and it is filled with all new designs just waiting to be colored!

I absolutely love creating these books!  I've been coloring some of the pages.  You know, testing them out to make sure they are fun to color!

Pattern and Design Coloring Book!

I am so, so happy to share this with you! This has, without a doubt, been one of the most fun projects I have ever worked on!  And it is available NOW on Amazon!

This coloring book is filled with 50 designs and patterns-- some florals, geometrics, abstracts and repeat patterns.  I had such an amazing time working on this.  I have been coloring since I was a child, and I know what makes a good coloring book.  I have lots of experience in this area!  I've provided a challenging mix of intricate and simpler designs.  And the backs of the pages have been left blank so that you can use markers.  (By the way, I suggest putting a sheet of paper in between the pages to preven bleed-through).

I've colored a couple of the pages in my proof copy:

I just can't wait for you to see the whole book!  And even more, I can't wait to see how you guys choose to color these pages!  Please send me your images, post them in the customer images at Amazon.com, or post them to my Facebook page!

I hope you have as much fun coloring in this book as I had designing it!
