Giveaway Winner and New Coloring Sheets

And the winner according to is comment number 34!  So it looks like the puzzle will be going to France.  Congratulations!  This was so much fun and such a success, I’ll definitely do another one before the winter holidays.  Thanks for playing everybody!

I also decided I better make a couple of new coloring sheets so everyone can get a little something.  So here they are.  Animal coloring sheet (with elephant! – ha) and flowers coloring sheet.  My daughter tried the flower sheet out last night with her watercolors and made a beautiful painting.  So click on the images below and print if you want to try them!  Just for fun I added pictures of my artwork that inspired the coloring sheets.  A drypoint print and a watercolor.

    I love all of your art ideas and especially love your coloring sheets. I am starting my first year teaching third grade in Tanzania. Our school mascot is the twiga (giraffe in kiswahili) and had a feeling if I went to your blog, I would be able to find something. I appreciate you sharing resources with all of your blog fans and readers. Cheers!

    I just started trying embroidery with a gorgeous set of hand dyed yarn, and your pictures look like they will make great patterns! I'll send you a link when (if) I have a finished product to show off. Thanks, Sarah
