What's going on in Lindsay Land....



  Those of you that know me, know that I love everything about coloring. About 10 years ago, I created something called Cut and Color's - which I sold at my store and they were designs similar to what you see above. You would color and cut them out to use on scrapbook pages and cards. I kept plugging away at this idea and last year, ADORNit and I partnered with each other to create ART PLAY PAINTABLES. They have been a huge hit everywhere and this fall we will be coming out with ART PLAY PAINTABLES for Fall, Halloween and Christmas. Yippie!!! I cannot wait to start coloring these babies! Should be out in late summer... ask for them at your local craft store!

We are pretty excited about the new goodies! There might be some other fun new products coming from ADORNit and myself soon.... but that will be kept under lock and key for a bit ... hehehe. For now, ADORNit would like to give away TWO FULL SETS of the everyday ART PLAY PAINTABLES - - - so, if you hashtag #loveadornit on instagram or facebook and SHARE this post.... you will be entered in to win one of those sets. The winner will be chosen next week on Sunday the 21st. Thank you all for supporting our fun product. If you own any and want to share what you have done with them, please do so! I would love to see what you do!


 The next piece of exciting news is that I will be a featured artist this coming July in the new Somerset Studios Art Journaling Magazine. That's me on the cover there with the Idiomatic Speech article. And here is the super cool part.... I have not one journal being featured... but two! Both the Idiomatic Speech book and a Fortune Cookie Journal also. You can find this magazine at craft and book stores... or online direct.



Below is one of the pages from my Idiomatic Speech article. . . I am pretty excited to see it in person. The colors look awesome and Somerset Studios always does a great job.


 
And now for the really exciting news... at least for me. So, for years I have wanted to make a new lettering book. This one has been out of print for awhile. I was looking on Ebay the other day after someone sent me a message that my book was up there for $750!!! And I about fell over when I saw that. So, I decided.... it was time to do another one.

 
Just like Creedence Clearwater Revival is now Creedence Clearwater Revisited... So will the lettering book. I am going to revisit parts of it and alot of it will be brand spanking new. I figure that I should have it done by January . .  . and I hope to either print it myself, offer it up to a publisher or do it as a download for you all to print. What do you all think about that? Any ideas? Let me know. I am so excited to start this project.... I did the cover this week and need to color it in and then i'm good to go.


That's all the news for now. Yippie!!! It's been a super fun week. If you have been playing along... and left me comments... you can check back tomorrow when I choose a winner. Thanks so so much for following along. 
Check back or subscibe along to see as things progress 
with new products and projects!
HAPPY TRAILS!!!

F I N A L L Y ! ! ! Yes indeed another of your books is much needed, you are the guru. I bought a lettering book of yours years ago, that's how I got to know you, I left it in Spain and wrote to you to buy another one! I think you should publish it online so we can buy it and pay you you direct and download it immediately, no waiting for Mr Amazon Delivery Man to turn up. Lindsay I'm so excited about this!!!!!! xx

I haven't even bought the first one but I'm going to do that tonight if I can. After looking at the first one on this page I think you should definitely do another one. I have several adult coloring books and they are so much fun. I'm working on another by Joanne Fink right now but yours is a definite one I want on my shelf. I think you might have it but just in case it's:
