Great British bake off

Since the relatively new release (in Australia) of our free to air television channel food network I have been obsessed with cooking shows. I can’t get enough of them. One of my favorites is the Great British Bake Off.

I just found this Great British Bake off coloring book online, and it’s adorable. Not only does it have baking images in it, they’re images of bakes that I remember from the season I just watched (not necessarily the latest season).

If you like baking and want to check out some other cute baking coloring books, we have collected a whole bunch on one of our categories pages.

Halloween Coloring books and Pages

There’s still time to get that Halloween fix before the date actually arrives. If you’ve got nothing spooky to color and you’ve been itching to get your fingers onto a creepy tome, here are some slightly different ideas for you:

misfits-coverA whole lot a big eyed zombie dolls. The images are deceptively simple, with quite a lot of undetailed space for you to add your own creepy touches.

MindfulResource has some of the most intricate and adorable spooky coloring pages I’ve seen. There is so much tiny detail, these guys are going to take you a WHILE to complete, but at the end you’ll have your own “where’s Wally?” image.

I hope you find something among these little treats that tickles your fancy.

Halloween coloring

We’ve uploaded a new Halloween coloring page for our birthday month.
We loved the idea of our other merfolk children dressing up in Halloween costumes and turning up on our front doorstep!
Please share our free page, and show us what you do with it.
We’re happy for you to use and print it as many times as you like, as long as you credit us for the drawing (

Quick sale – prismacolors

Just saw these on amazon in case anyone is in the market for a new set.

(not sure how long they’re at this price for, it might be ages, or it might be really quick, so I thought I’d mention it as soon as I saw it)

Thought the price was pretty good for 132 prismacolors ($70).

Quick sale – Derwent Intense color blocks

Just a really quick post to mention that these guys (Derwent inktense color blocks) are on sale today. Not sure when it’s going to end, but I don’t think the sale is a very long one.

They can be used to produce some of the most gorgeous artwork! Check out these examples on Pinterest

Adult Colouring Sheets

In deference to my Australian heritage today, I am using the alternate spelling of coloring.

If you’re looking for great free Adult Colouring sheets, don’t forget to search both coloring and colouring.  There are incredible artists and illustrators getting their work out there across the English speaking world, and by using the different spelling you can get a much larger variety of free Adult Colouring sheets to download for your colouring pleasure.

Pinterest is a great source of free colouring in. Check out our Adult Colouring sheet board for some inspiration.

And while a lot of search engines will search coloring and colouring, it’s worth typing both of them into your search engine specifically, just to make sure you don’t miss out on a particular gem.
