Just wanted to remind everyone about the free Christmas Tree coloring pages I have on my site! I also have several other designs to choose from. Long car trip ahead? Need something to occupy little ones while visiting family? These might be just the thing.

If you or your little one color one of my coloring pages and would like to share what you made, please e-mail me at ecarian at yahoo dot com and show me it! Let me know if I can use it as an example on my site, and if you post it up on your blog send me the link so I can link to it. :-)
Thanks to the following blogs for letting me link up...
Ah Noelle, you didn't leave an e-mail, and there's no e-mail on your blogger profile, and you don't have a blog I can post on, and God has not chosen to send me a vision of your address and card choice.
If you want your choice of card from my shop, e-mail me letting me know which greeting card or three postcards you want, and your address, before 11:00 pm December 7. If you miss that deadline but still find this some time in the next month and contact me I'll send you one of the cards I have at home, but the Zazzle cards I need to order by December 8. My e-mail is ecarian at yahoo dot com.
Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday, where I ask a simple question for you to answer in the comments (if you want to).
My son recently blew me away when he showed me some artwork he had done. They were Scribbleprints, like mine, only with his own flair! I was really touched...and impressed. Not that what I do is that hard...but for a 7 year old, they were really good, and I thought it was sweet that he wanted to do something like me.
He was imitating my cross in the magnet holding it...
here it is larger:
He said he was trying to get it like mine...but I actually like
the way it's different then the one I drew. How his is more symmetrical, but not completely.
And I loved his other scribbleprints which were less imitations and let his originality shine through.
So, here's today's questions:
What's the sweetest way your child has imitated you?
Please leave your answer in a comment below. And, if you have a blog and would like to post your own question you can leave your link at An Island Life.
Oh, and I have to mention...this question was in some part inspired by a similar question at TechyDad about ways our children resemble us. Always love his Aloha Friday posts...they're often very insightful, and nearly always make me think (which is a good thing...I need to keep my brain awake).
There are some things your kids will do that will just melt your heart.
This is one of them.
Remind you of anything? My seven year old is making Scribbleprints!
No prompting...he decided to do this all on his own.
We thought the one above looked like a clover, and we got
to talk about discovering pictures in the scribbles. :-)
This one he patterned after my Cross design (which is on a magnet up
in the corner). I think his cross is beautiful! If you look in the pattern you can
make out his original scribble and see how he filled in areas on the side, and I
like the types of patterns this made. This one might have to go straight from the fridge to a frame.
This picture is 100% his own creation. I think his snail is precious and love
how he made Scribbleprint letters with it too!
I guess you could say this proves even a child can do Scribbleprints...but, I already knew that. There are things you do you want your child imitating and things you don't. My son imitating my art makes my heart smile. I know as he continues to draw and paint and craft he'll come up with his own style and niche that is just his, and I look forward to seeing that develop. But for now I feel proud to know he likes the art I do enough to try it for himself.
