You may have noticed that I have a new book out! The Little Pink Elephant. You may also be able to guess who my inspiration was? Well inspiration or not, my little one wanted more elephants. Even after illustrating the book, I was happy to provide them. That means you get them too!
I’m not the only one with elephants on the brain. With an upcoming movie, and the general popularity of elephants in the baby section of most stores, I hope you all find my elephants fill a need for your little one, just like they did for mine.
There really are pink elephants in Africa! I was surprised too, but once I new I had to share the information. No they aren’t born pink, but the dirt in the area they live is bright red, and when it dries it turns the elephants varies shades of red and pink. How cool is that!

Spring is officially here, even if the weather doesn’t cooperate every day. Pollen fills the air, bugs are out in force and my little one is coloring up a storm.
Change is in the air.
Just like the seasons, what my daughter wants changes and I need to be on top of things, by changing up her travel bag. I still keep a few blank pages, but I pull out last months unused coloring pages and file them away for later. This month I’m putting in my Spring Coloring Pages.

This one is for the fans of my book “Bubbles and the Berry Bush“. If your not familiar with it you can read about it in another post here. Or check it out on amazon here.
Make it a treat or a reward
Bookmarks are an easy and popular treat to give to book loving kids. Even if you and your kids are not familiar with Bubbles the Bubble Blowing dragon these book marks are sure to be a hit! I find that any gift I give is treated better if my kids think they have earned it. Try sitting through a whole story, or reading one to you!
To print these bookmarks put 8.5 x 11 white cardstock into your printer and make sure it is ready to print. Then click the top image. It should pop up a new tab or page with both pages. Print as you normally would, stopping to flip the page so that it is two sided.
After printing them, cut them apart along the dotted lines and enjoy. The second side of the bookmark has a place for you or your child to right their name. That way if you have more than one child it is easy to remember who’s bookmark belongs to who.
Remember only laminate after they have colored it. Laminating isn’t required, but it does extend the life of the bookmark.
These bookmarks are free for you to print and hand out, but they are NOT for you to sale or post on any site.

My youngest princess is always asking me to draw coloring pages for her. She has never liked coloring books, yet she loves it when I draw scenes for her to color.
Over time, I noticed that I was drawing very similar pages each time. Her favorite pages all have fairies on them.
I realized that if I draw them up and digitized them I would save time. No more racking my brain for what to draw. No more stopping what I am doing (ex. filling out forms at a doctor’s office, or listening to the preacher in church) to draw a new scene. I keep paper in a folder for this very purpose. In the future I’ll have several printed scene’s ready to go.
I keep these scene’s pretty basic. This allows for plenty of creativity on the part of my princess. I keep her travel bag simple too. One paper folder, one crayon box and a pen. Now I won’t have to worry about the pen.
Come back for more.
Then throughout the year I’ll share them with you here on my blog. Make sure to follow me on Pinterest, Facebook, or Instagram to get the next set. Click below to get This months free coloring pages.
