Coming Soon... Coloring Pages for the Littlest Fans

It doesn't matter how many temper tantrums my kids have -- on the days when I get an email from a mother informing me that her little kiddo requests to look at his/her favorite illustrations in my shop every day -- my bad days turn right around.

I love my littlest fans. The stories I get from the mom who tells me that she often finds her 2-year old having a one-sided conversation with Captain Monkeybones, to the mom who says her 3-year old calls my Olivia snob 'Cinderella,' and thinks she is beautiful in all her snub-nosed glory, to the 4-year old who has to look at certain colorful, cheerful pictures in my shop daily... those are the stories that make my days struggling to balance being mama and being creative illustrator, worth it.

So, for all my littlest fans, I'm working on some coloring pages that I plan to have on this blog in the next week or so. I've never done a high resolution PDF file before, so I have some kinks to work out. Hopefully it will be easier than it looks and I can have them up in a day or two. Wishful thinking.

But in the meantime, do your kids have a coloring page request? I have about 60+ illustrations in my shop, so it won't be feasible for me to make one of everything... But be sure to let me know which illustration your child loves the most in the comments to this post, and I'll do my best to include the popular ones.

Thanks and enjoy!

xoxo,
