Fun Dollar Coupons | A Free Printable

Fun Dollar Coupons Free Printable via lilblueboo.com

Here’s a great little gift your kiddos can create for grandparents, babysitters, or even add onto a birthday gift for fun.

My 6 year old gives these to me often. I stockpile them! I love to redeem my “tickle” or “knock-knock joke” coupons with him when he’s in a grumpy mood. It’s guaranteed to get a smile back on his face in no time!

Kids can staple a whole book of coupons together for a very special gift.

And even parents can fill them in to reward kids for great behavior or help around the house.

T-Shirt Coloring Party

I love what my friend Katherine did for her daughter’s birthday party recently! She used the free download by Stephanie Corfee to have a tank top coloring station. All the girls made their own designs.

(Stephanie also made an image for the boys too (or girls that are fans of sharks).)

 

Her daughter in the photo above is wearing a purple Cascading Ruffle Skirt too…..you can get the free download for the skirt here.

Boys of Summer Art | A FREE Printable

So many folks asked for a boy-friendly coloring page/tee transfer when i posted the super-girly one last week! So, i asked my 6-year-old son what kind of art HE would like to color on a tee. He pretty much SCREAMED, “Sharks!” So, sharks it is. i know my niece would actually like this too. But it’s only fair i make one with boys in mind, because my poor kiddos always get the shaft when it comes to my art. What can i say? i have a twirly, girly aesthetic and no daughters! It has to come out somewhere!

Anyway, click on the image below for your free coloring page download. Or, if you want a flipped version for use on t-shirt transfers, click here.

Happy coloring and have a great summer!

Kick off school vacation with a summery coloring page to pass the kids’ now-lazy days. This doodle prints perfectly on a plain letter sized piece of paper. OR, print the mirror image onto soft inkjet transfer paper like this. Then iron it onto a white or light colored tee and let your little one color it in with fabric markers. They will be so proud of their wearable masterpiece! It would also be a great project for a summer birthday or pool party!

Boo tested out the new doodle print recently:

Seaside

I sat on the beach and a beautiful wave
Came tumbling right up to me.

It threw some pink shells on the sand at my feet,
Then hurried straight back out to sea.


 

 

It ran away swiftly and leaped up in foam;
It bumped other waves in its glee.

 


 

I think it was hurrying to gather more shells,
To bring as a present for me.
-from “The Wave” by Gussie Osborne

Camera Art (and free download!)

It wouldn’t be Two Weeks of Photography in true Lil Blue Boo fashion without some clothing involved! I knew I wanted to do an outline of an vintage camera and I left the artwork up to my talented artist friend Stephanie Corfee. As usual she came up with something fabulous! I added a little bit of Andy Warhol inspiration for color/multiple print and I ended up with this fun little number!

Scarves & "Lucky" Hoodies & Sewing Idol!

New fun stuff in the shop this week! An upcycled patchwork scarf:


New limited edition “lucky” twirl hoodies! I’ve finished the smaller sizes and put them up and larger sizes will be added tonight (7pmPST/10pmEST) and tomorrow morning (9amPST/12pmEST) to Big Cartel. I silk screened the Chinese symbol for luck on the front and backs of each dress using a distressed method to resemble calligraphy:




Two favorite one-of-a-kind dresses made this week:



I finally snapped a photo of Boo in her “Li’l Fashionista” dress. This is such a fun collaboration! If you order a custom illustration from Stephanie Corfee (click here for more information) I’ve added an option in my shop for a custom dress using the same print. Stephanie will work with you on a custom illustrated portrait of your kiddo and then send me the final high resolution version if you decide you want the clothing option too. The queue starts with Stephanie though, so please don’t purchase the dress until your artwork is finalized! I’ll be adding a shirt option this week as well.


Finally….some shameless self promotion :) I was nominated for Sewing Idol! I’m floored and overwhelmed by the time it took a certain “someone” to put such a thoughtful submission essay together. I’ve printed it out for extra motivation to continue sharing more and more sewing tips and tutorials. Please go and vote and leave a comment at the link below if you get time…..I’m several months behind on votes so I could use as many as I can get! The finalists are chosen by votes and comments!

Note: Lil Blue Boo is submission #51 (under the VOTE tab) and you have to register to vote!


More fun stuff hitting the shop next week hopefully if we are able to get a photo shoot finished this weekend! Stay tuned!
