Houses Coloring Page – When I was a little girl I used to spend hours drawing houses and floor plans that went with them. I still remember my Dad walking to the end of our very long farm lane driveway to get the weekend newspaper. As soon as he brought it in I would fling it open in search for the “homes” section. Back in the day, they would have pages of house renderings and the corresponding floor plan designs – trying to entice all the farm folk to become city slickers. To this day I have no idea what it was that drew me to draw page after page of houses but I know I had books full of my designs. At one point I was seriously considering becoming an architect but then my school guidance counselor told me all the math credits I’d need to get into University – let’s just say that math wasn’t my strong suit. Eventually the dream of being an architect faded but I never lost my joy of drawing houses. Now that same joy seems to have been passed down to my daughter who loves drawing, especially the bricks on the buildings.
I’ve made two designs. The first printable is a coloring page full of houses. The second printable has houses but also an option for kids to draw their own house too – a wonderful resource for teachers, homeschoolers and parents. Also a fun and educational way to entertain kids.

Bugs & Butterflies coloring page
This weekend we did our first camping trip of the 2015 spring/summer camping season along the breathtaking Juan de Fuca Marine Trail on Vancouver Island. Camping along the Pacific West Coast is one of our family’s favorite past times. We had an amazing time spending three days out in nature.
During our camping adventure, we saw a myriad of wildlife, sea life and interesting creatures including a close encounter with a black bear (see photo below). Camping in the forest and on the beach among all the flora and fauna, I was inspired to get out my sketchbook and draw some cute little insects and butterflies.

Please note, these drawings aren’t really anatomically correct but rather fun “interpretations” of bugs and butterflies in general. My daughter loves these coloring pages and the butterflies are her favorite insects to color. I’m sure there’s lots of nature lovers out there who will enjoy these coloring pages. Happy coloring!

Owls Coloring Page
Owl Coloring Page – Here’s a great question for you…did you know that a group of owls is called a parliament? I totally would have failed that question on an exam. It’s been a while now since I’ve made a coloring page so I decided to draw a “parliament” of owls for all of our owl fans out there. We love to draw and color in our home – even my husband, who’s main artistic skill is drawing stick men, enjoys getting in on a little coloring action. I often send a variety of coloring pages home with Noelle’s friends when they visit – always a hit. I’ve had a number of mom friends tell me that the coloring pages have saved their sanity while traveling, at weddings, on ferries, camping or when mom just needs a moment of peace and quiet. Some of my teacher friends use these pages in their classes when their kids have finished all their work or to leave for substitute teachers. I’m so happy that people make such great use of these coloring pages. If you have any theme requests for future coloring pages, please let me know.
