I have it on good authority that I’m not the only one who still has their colored pencils (or who has obtained more in adulthood, a move that I completely support)! Which means I suspect I’m not the only one who might enjoy a little coloring book inspired by our lovely stars.

Because really, every single time I see them, I think ‘ooooh, that would be fun to color…’ So this year I made that happen! I commissioned a talented friend to turn the outlines of the stars into line drawings, and I put together a little coloring book with a bunch of versions of two of my favorites.

It’s free, a little holiday gift to anyone who maybe finds things a little hard this time of year, and you can find it right over here.

Now for the scandalous promotional/preemptive question answering bits:

  • The paper stars are my emotional support craft project, I make them to stave off the winter dark, and I wrote a book with step by step instructions for how to make them. It’s called Gleaming, and you can find it (along with info about the nifty paper I use for them) right over here.
  • Anyone at the Utter Nonsense or Rampant Nonsense levels on patreon already has access to the book through this post over here!
  • If you’re worried that folding them will be hard, I’ve got a little set of free sample instructions over here so you can make sure you’re comfortable with the folds.

And I’m thinking…as of right now (the morning of December 21, which is when I’m writing this, even though it won’t to up until the 22nd), patreon says I’ve got 1,137 paid subscribers. And patreon is what lets me do projects like this and share them with everyone! So if we can get that to 1,200 by the end of the year, I’ll get two more stars commissioned and do an extended version of the coloring book for everyone some time in January.

Again, the post with the download is right over here, it’s free, and anyone can download it. I hope it makes your day a little brighter!
