Single Mama bear and entrepreneur here! I draw/sell these Giant 5ft Coloring Pages for kids!
The business really started back in 2000, babysitting in HS. I unrolled butcher paper and drew cartoons as fast as the kids were coloring them. Their mom was so impressed, she asked me to make another for an upcoming birthday…and so it began!
A family business for awhile, but life happens, and business faded.
Now, with a little girl of my own, I’m SO excited to draw more scenes and pick up where we left off! She inspires me daily! I ask her what she wants to dream about, and I just take notes… That’d be a good page to draw! I think to myself.
As much as I’d love to say every page was drawn by me, I cannot. We hired guest artist, Jerry Scianio, back in 2002 to create Dinosaurs, Space Station, Noah’s Ark, Bible Stories, and Bugs Life. I’m fully capable of drawing these scenes, and would love to re-do them to be my own, I’d love more to have more scenes to choose from. So! Thats where I’ll be focusing my efforts. When I’m not being a mommy, rolling product, running to the post office, or doing budgets and marketing, I’ll be drawing new scenes.

They’re printed on heavy weight, bright white paper, and rolled to look like a giant crayon! Made right here in the USA.
The recent events of the world, though hard and sad, were a true blessing in disguise for my daughter and I. After losing 3 of my main jobs, I’m now turning to this business to be our sole source of income.
Its the push I needed to make it happen. Jump and you will fly! (or fall, but then you’ll know how to jump better next time!) Well, now; is my time to jump!
Any reviews, posts or shares are SO very needed, appreciated. Thank You for all your support!
