Coloring Book: February

My gift to my favorite 2-year old Dadi this year is a coloring book with a page released on the blog each month for his mama to download and print so he can color his way into the things that make up 2011. No one’s looking- you can print it out too even if it’s for your inner toddler to color outside the lines…


We pull up to your school and you leap into your mama’s arms. Me, you look at with those big wide eyes, appraising. It still takes you a little while to warm up to me, where I know a few hours in, you’ll be just fine. This February is going to stand out to your family for some time to come. See Dadi, we can’t ever prepare for some things in life. Hard things will come and good times will too. If I could tell you one of the biggest secrets in life, it’s this: Love big.

You, who are so full of life and energy and boundless amounts of care at such a young age, hang tight to it. Loving big is not something you have to grow out of. So this one is dedicated to you and your best friend Violet.

About Anneliesz

Food. Poetry. People. Art. If I was Julie Andrews singing her song, these would be some of my favorite things. My biggest food fail was something we'll call "Tuna Surprise," but that never kept me out of the kitchen. Cooking is my own playtime. While I'm not a chef and would never claim to be anything less than an experimenter of flavors and textures, I sure do love to feed people. Then there's my love of writing which commenced at a wee age over a talking pen named "Percy". I love rolling words around my tongue in different languages. Art camp taught me the importance of not having an eraser. Life is an adventure and one whose marrow I seek to suck as much out of as possible. Join me as I live my life en route.

  1. I adore this project (and drawing)! Dadi is lucky to have you around to teach life secrets about loving big. Oh, and I just printed 2 copies, one for me and one for my two-year-old. Thank you.

    • Yea! Dadi is the cutest two year old ever. I wish I lived closer to him and his family to be more in his day-to-day life, but I’ll admit this project has made me excited to chronicle a year in image and word as something he can look back on.

  2. Hi

    Love the coloring pages.

    Maybe Dadi would also enjoy the ones on my new site…

    All of the content is free, and there’s lots of great coloring pages on all sorts of topics – Pokemon, Hello Kitty, Easter, Christmas, Dinosaurs, …

    I’m also adding more pages and books most days.

    The coloring pages can be colored in online, or printed off to use colored pencils, crayons etc.

    Thanks for your time!
