The twelve of you who actually read my blog definitely know that I LOVE COLOR. I am excited to be teaching two classes at the first-ever all-day online sewing conference on November 8th called The Sewing Party! See the event here and be one of thousands to sign up for lots of classes. A whole day of learning costs just $40 (and you have access to the classes for quite a while afterwards). One of my classes is about understanding color and the other is a walk through my upcoming book, The Little Spark–30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity (which you can preorder now and there is even a LOOK INSIDE peek over on Amazon here). Read about both of my classes here and sign up
To celebrate COLOR today, I’m giving away a book you will love: the super-fun color theory book for kiddos, The Wonderful Colorful Wonder Wheel of Color by Lynn Koolish, Kerry Graham and Mary Wruck. It was written for children but you’ll love it for your grown-up self just as much as I do. My five year old daughter is enamored with the color wheel on page 10 and practicing the primary and secondary colors. I know this wondrous spectacle of a book will be a source of learning and inspiration for my kids for many years. It includes lots of activities like sandpaper/crayon iron transfers (which I had never seen before…very cool) and many others including spin art, woven bracelets and tissue paper flowers. Each activity teaches color theory basics like value and even the mood of colors. (ENTER GIVEAWAY BELOW)
When I was a kid, I spent many…many…MANY hours with my Richard Scary Rainy Day Make it Do It Activity Book. You? And not to date myself too much, but I had four favorite craft books…I still have them:
Yep. 1977. I lived in the pages of these books. Did you have them? I wanted to make terrariums and dye carnations blue and press leaves and make God’s Eyes from string. These books were my bliss. I have a feeling that The Wonderful Colorful Wonder Wheel of Color will be that way for your kids. Want to win a copy?

Looks like an awesome book and one I need! I think color is one thing I struggle with. I know what I like when I see colors together but not sure how to get there on my own.
Thanks for a super giveaway and a chance to win.
Oh my! I love your favorite craft books from your childhood. I have a serious vintage craft book addiction!
I am just starting to teach some of my grandchildren to sew. This book would really help.
