Welcome to the Color It yours Blog. We are so excited that you're here, reading our very first blog post!
Who are we?
Color It yours is a husband, and wife team. Together we will be creating some amazing adult coloring books, and hopefully a few other things to color. We'll be bringing you lots of coloring tips, tricks, and inspiration. Stay tuned!
The above drawing was done by Jason in 2000, and is currently hanging in our South Texas home.
The drawing above was drawn by Jason as a gift for a friend in 2005.

I'm Caitlin. While my husband does all the drawings for our books, I will be handling all the editing, book cover design, publishing, blogging, coming up with new products, and basically anything else that goes into making and selling coloring books that isn't drawing, especially coloring. I have been spending A LOT of time coloring.
How it all started.
As mentioned above, Jason has been drawing for a long time. A few years ago, he started drawing some abstract images on canvases for me to paint. He drew way more than I could keep up with. I still have stacks of them, unfinished. When I opened my (now closed) shop back in July of 2014, I hung all of his unpainted canvases on the wall. Almost everyone that came in took an interest in them, but it wasn't until Christmas Eve in 2015 that we decided to turn his drawings into a coloring book. That was the Christmas that I received my first adult coloring book as a gift from my mother in law. When we got home that night, we sat down on the couch to relax, and watch some movies. I pulled out my new coloring book, and my new set of Crayola colored pencils, and began to color. I was immediately hooked. It was in that moment that I had the idea to turn all my husband's drawings into a coloring book so that everyone could enjoy them.
The above image is one of the images drawn by Jason on a canvas, and painted by me.
