New Colouring Page – Science

Hi, Friends!

I am thrilled with this week’s colouring page – this is exactly the sort of thing I wanted to have created when I envisioned this project. One of the things I feel important is the need to keep little ones, well, little. This is the reasons why I design our dolls to be childlike and innocent – I think there is power in this as it allows our children to be themselves and not pushed into a vision of adulthood that some dolls portray .. you know who I’m talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰ I want our little ones to be inspired to be who they want to be not what society pushes on them. I mean, I love princesses but enough already. So, I wanted pages to inspire and normalize cool things in life. So, girls doing science. Right?! Heck, yes.

This week’s page is available through this link. Here’s a tip to get the printing the right way that I just kind of figured out .. when you go to print the page in the presets there should be a place to change the orientation to horizontal.

I love to see the pages! Please tag #bambolettalove on finished ones for us to see!

Thanks so much,
Christina

Halloween Colouring Page!


We have been having SO much fun with these colouring pages – the two gals I have working on them are so uber talented. I polled our little community over on Facebook about ideas for pages and have some fantastic ones in the works. But because Halloween is only a few days away I thought it would be fun to have something a little seasonal. So, here’s our latest colouring page. And I think you can click this link and it will take you to a page that you can print by hitting Print over on your File tab up there. I’m still trying to figure out how to make things all downloadable but think this will work!

Do you gals have any ideas for new cute pages? Bamboletta has always worked like this – customer input has been my greatest source of inspiration and ideas.

Thanks so much, friends! Have a great weekend!

Christina

PS Please tag finished colouring pages with #bambolettalove so I can see them! I love to see your little’s handiwork! xo

Such a cute picture! I really wanted to print it out for my daughter to enjoy but can’t figure out how to make it fill up the whole page. Any tips?

Hi! In your printer settings (user the File settings) you should be able to change the orientation to landscape! That should help!

New Colouring Pages! Picking Flowers in the Forest

Hi Friends!

I loved colouring so much as a child, and I still enjoy it. I thought it would be fun to get some help in creating some Bamboletta Colouring pages. I was lucky enough to find Alona, who designed this. I have a few other illustrators working on pieces as well and will be sharing their work in the upcoming weeks!

I’m not entirely sure how to have this as a download – I think you can just right click the photo and a ‘download’ tab will appear. You can also try this link ๐Ÿ™‚

I’d love to see your finished pages! Please tag them with #bambolettalove so I can see them!!

Best to you and yours!
Christina

Thanks, Christina! I pinned it to my board on Pinterest, then saved it as a jpeg and printed it out. It’s beautiful, I will work on it with my littles. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think if you press the link button it will take you to another page and then you hit print – *think* I figured it out! Sorry!

Hi Dee! I think I figured the link thing out now! Just click the link and then you should be able to directly print it ๐Ÿ™‚

Team Bamboletta – Alana

This is a monthly series I’m doing to introduce you to our amazing team here at Bamboletta. Today I’m introducing Alana. Alana is a mom to a 9 year old son and 6 year old girl and lives over on the Island where most of my Bamboletta production takes place. I’ve been lucky to have her work with us for 3 years now.

Alana is the lady who makes our doll heads and sews various dolls together. She is def a maker of all things – aside from work she creates all sorts of crafts – from woodworking projects to dream catchers! You know those cute little felt clips you see in the dolls hair from time to time? Yup, that’s Alana.

Little Alana and her fav doll growing up. The doll love is strong in this lady!

Prior to working for Bamboletta, Alana worked in foster care in Alberta. The quote she often reminds herself of is ‘The days are long but the years are short’ – working from home allowsย her to stay home with her children and able to participate in every aspect of their young lives. Alana says they fight and argue like most siblings do but have an incredible bond that she knows for sure that being a stay at home and working from home has helped them nurture a great relationship.

While rolling heads and sewing dolls together, Alana loves to listen to the radio. 2 years ago she did what many of us say we want to do but just can’t (maybe I’m speaking for myself here) – she gave up cable. video games AND the internet. Gah! So music is really important to her and she’s happy it’s such a big part of her kids lives.

Alana is such an important part of our team (as are all the ladies!) and we are so fortunate to have her with us. Thanks, Alana!
