freebies (OMG!)

Every now and then, I add files that you can download for free. Check in often to see what's new!

Get out your crayons and scissors! Here's a new project for bookworms. The coloring sheets booklet below gave me the idea that you could use a bookmark for your coloring book.

You may freely distribute the original, unaltered files.
You may freely distribute your colored versions if you list me as a collaborator. (Thank you!)

live for the weekend calendar

OK, weekend warriors, this one is for you! You can get an ordinary calendar anywhere. This one does what many of us attempt — it skims over the weekdays and focuses on the weekends. It started as a joke, but why not use it to plan your after-hours creative life? Choose the Word (docx) version to fill in your important events onscreen, as shown in the image on the left. If you don't have Word, download the PDF version.

Nearly every morning, I spend a few minutes drawing, usually doing a zen-tangle-style doodle with a Sanford Uniball Micro pen and 3″×3 squares of Bristol paper. After the ink part is done, I shade the doodles with drawing pencils. One of my coworkers loves to color, and she asked me to make her some coloring pages. These are just like the usual doodles, but I've left out shading because coloring artists add it themselves. And the drawings are enlarged to print on 8.5″×11 paper. The PDF booklet includes twelve pages to relax you and get you in a creative state of mind. Color on, my friends!

Knitting is one of my favorite contemplative practices, and I give away almost everything I make. Recently I've been turning an inherited yarn stash into hats for a charity that provides overnight shelter for homeless people. This stash-buster beanie (one of my original designs) fits a two- to four-year-old child and is suitable for knitters with intermediate skills. If you have an account on Ravelry.com, look for me there as NerdGirl253. Happy knitting!
