For All the Brave Ones

Corfee-BeBraveColoring-IG

My sweet friend, Amy, asked me if i had a coloring page i could share for her child’s class service project. They are making “BE BRAVE” craft/coloring folders for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, in honor of their classmate. i was happy to make one, of course. And then thought…… it’d be even better if i shared it with my whole community. There are too many brave kids fighting cancer. i realize life isn’t fair…..but it just seems unbearably wrong.

If you know a little brave heart who is fighting this battle….or any child who might find strength or hope in this message right now, please help yourself. Just click the image for your download.

much love, s

A Giving Heart Giveaway for Mother’s Day

A Giving Heart Coloring Book for Mother's Day Bundle

The release date of my newest book, A Giving Heart, has finally arrived! And I’m excited to give away 7 prize bundles to celebrate!

This book is so close to my heart. It is full of inspiring quotes and scripture verses celebrating motherhood. It also features lots of pages without text. For those pages, I created fun florals, mandalas, and images that represent many of the things the mamas in my life really love. Um, there is a page full of coffee/tea/hot chocolate mugs, a page with a sewing machine, and a page with brushes and easel, a page with a camera, an angel, and more! I put a lot of thought into creating something for everyone. I hope you will find lots of pages that resonate with you!

The pages are printed with art on one side only in a square format. This makes your masterpieces easy to remove and frame. Work on the art together with your mom, grandmom, or children. Make it a togetherness activity and frame the results as a memory.

Whether you ARE a mom, HAVE a mom, or PLAY THE PART of a mom, this book is for you. We’ve released it just in time for Mother’s Day and there is a beautiful bookplate page in the front to fill in if you are giving it as a gift. If you are a dad, snag a book and have your kids get it started by coloring a page they think best represents their mom before wrapping it.

I have such amazing memories of coloring with my mom when i was a kid. It was such a great time to talk to each other and make something beautiful at the same time. I’d love this book to be the vehicle for that kind of memory-making for all of you, too.

A Simple Reminder to Color

Screen Shot 2016-03-28 at 10.41.04 AM

i recently got a new iPad Pro. i got it to make life easier, staple myself to my desk less often, and work smarter, not harder. In the past, i’d make coloring pages by sketching on paper, then using marker paper and a light box to ink the sketched design, then scan to my computer, open in Photoshsop, clean up the inevitable blobs and bleeds in certain areas caused by marker on paper (even good paper!), then convert to crisp, clean vectors in Illustrator. The process was taking up more time than necessary, and had me at me computer a lot more than i needed to be. After looking into the Cintiq Companion and the iPad Pro, since both allowed for “anywhere” digital drawing, i chose the iPad Pro for it’s other capabilities and cheaper price tag. i still plan to be in-studio for all my hands-on painting work, so i really juts wanted a way to streamline my sketching and vector work, so it was a good choice for me, i THINK!! : )

SO…..now i have been practicing and getting used to the tools and the responsiveness of the apple pencil, and all that jazz…..so you guys will be getting lots of my experiments shared with you as freebie downloads for a little while. Enjoy!! Once i get a good grip on it, i will be adding lots more clip art and digital files to my etsy shop that will be great for your kiddos, for wall art, for party favors and invites, and whatever else you can think of.

Happy Monday! Do Good in the world today!! xo,s
