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!

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 🙂

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

Best to you and yours!
Christina

Peace,

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. 🙂

Thanks, Yuen! I think I figured it out to make the link work 🙂

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 🙂

These are the most wonderful coloring pages. I’m a 73 year-old kid and still love to color. Please keep them coming.

I’d love to see an astronaut coloring page
and
a page with the Bamboletta mamas making the dolls.

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 allows 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!

What we’re listening to in the studio …

I used to do these kind of posts a ways back and every so often I go back through my blog and see these ‘what I’m listening to’ posts and re discover music I loved. Music is like bookmarks in your life – I can always remember events around times where I’m listening to certain songs.

So, in case you’d like some new music and for my own memories – here’s what we are currently listening too …

Secret by Clark
Mirrorball by Elbow
Oasis by La Chica
Same Ol’ Mistakes by Rihanna
Pine & Ginger by Amindi K. Fro$t
Dis Generation by Tribe Called Quest
Choir To The Wild by Solomon Grey
Drive by Britta Phillps
Super Rich Kids by Sly5thave
Three Rings by Grizzly Bear

If you are on Spotify – here’s the list! Some old stuff, some new and a little bit of everything!
