Woohoo! It's 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 so excited that lots of Bible journalers have started using some of the images from my coloring books as well as those who just love to color for a relaxing and stress free past time.

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!

2nd Edition of the heART of childhood; Adult coloring book now available!

While I was thrilled with the production and reception of my first coloring book printing, I came across an even better product through a different supplier. I am even more thrilled to announce the second  edition of my coloring book!

They’re here!!!! My second edition of my adult coloring books, the heART of childhood just arrived!! I still cannot believe my first edition of books sold out in a little over a month! Truly it has been such a blessing and so unexpected. A HUGE thank you to ALL of you who have helped make that possible.

Ok, why a second edition? Because I listened to my customers and now the NEW features are:

1. Printing on one side of the paper only. Now you may color using markers or gel pens, as well as colored pencils and crayons if you choose; and they won't bleed through to the image on the opposite side. It also makes it fun if you want to take the completed piece out of the book and frame it when you are done with your marvelous creations. And now the book is twice as thick, too!

2. It is now “perfect bound” instead of saddle stitched.(aka stapled)  There is a peek of what I am talking about in the photo so you can visualize the difference.

3. Most of the art stayed the same in the NEW 2nd edition of the heART of childhood however, I did add 4 new images, and one illustration that has never been seen before!

With all of these improvements, my cost did increase a bit but I feel it is well worth the little bit extra. But the good news is I am still offering FREE U.S. SHIPPING by using the special code:  USShipFree   So go check heART of childhood: An adult coloring book out here!
