You can’t see me over here, but I’m all spazzy jumping up and down right now. Why? Because …
They’re here! My Nemo-inspired 2020 Weekly Planners with Coloring Pages for Dog Lovers are out on Amazon now! [cue: crowd roaring]
Totally dog-centric holidays along with the “usual” human ones are included in this combination weekly planner and adult coloring book. On each weekday page is a quarter-page size dog paw mini mandala, plus there are 14 full page coloring pages as well.
Here’s the mini promo video!
For those who may not be very familiar with me as an artist and Varsity Upcycler, the design of these planners is so OCD (which, if you know me, you know), at the end of the year, every design can be cut out and used for gift tags or ornaments by gluing them onto card stock. How is that for the ultimate in recycling and repurposing? 😉
Because no one wants to carry around a heavy tome, this is pretty lightweight at 8.5 inches square and around a quarter-inch or third of an inch thick on standard paper. A monthly goals page, seasonal planning pages and a lot of dog paw mandalas featuring Nemo’s pawprint, the provenance about which is described here.

A practical note from yours truly who amuses myself by creating all kinds of coloring page designs like these for my own enjoyment: colored pencils are the medium of choice unless you put something behind the page to keep wetter inks from bleeding through. If you want to watercolor or paint the design, my suggestion is to photocopy the small design to blow it up to the size you want it to be, then with tracing paper behind it, lightly trace the design onto your canvas and you can use any medium you like! Kind of like those Paint N Sip parties where you bring your own booze.
Perfect gift idea under $10 for all your dog lover friends and family, which btw is what inspired me to create a combo fun and useful product like this in the first place. Now, not only my friends can have their own copies of my artwork, all of yours can, too!!!
This is my first foray into “putting my stuff out there” and there will be more planners coming (including the Phoofie-inspired Cat Lovers version), but I do want to know what y’all think. I decided to sweeten the pot by offering weekly coloring page freebies to those who pop over to my Studio page and:
I don’t have the patience to wait for Amazon to get around to adding the “Look inside” feature, so here is My FlipBook version of a the full Look Inside!
Here’s what’s on the back cover:
All Crazy Dog Ladies and Crazy Dog Guys believe that they have the Best Dog Ever, and every single one of them is correct. Quirky, silly, goofy, with ‘tude or always obliging, a dog’s unconditional love heals us in more ways than we ever know.
