Hi.
I'm Hannah Stevenson the artist behind Lily & Thistle Creative Studio and MiniMe Paper dolls.  For two years now, I have been creating custom paper dolls for children all over the world.  It has been a dream realized to be able to help the magic of paper dolls happen in so many lives! 

The next dream is one you can help to come true.  I have designed a paper doll coloring book that puts the fun of customizing in the hands and minds of children and adults alike!  Let me tell you a little bit about the book:

COLORING BOOK DETAILS:

The book contains 24 pages of paper doll (6 dolls total) and outfit line (29 total) drawings printed on quality 80 lb card stock paper.  The idea is to either color directly on the pages or make a copy or tracing of the outfit you'd like and do as many versions as you can imagine (there will also be a printable PDF version available...see rewards on the side).  Either way, the book should give you or your child hours and hours of imaginative play and fun!  This is a book I would have loved as a child so I tried to think of all of the details that would make it special.

For those who might already have a MiniMe doll of their own, I made sure to size the outfits and dolls in the book to be compatible with one another.  You will recognize outfits from lines in my shop...the difference is, now you or your child can make them your own!

WHAT YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL MAKE POSSIBLE:

I am currently working with a printer and am hoping to do a first run of at least 1000 books.  This will enable me to get the best pricing and also help with distributing these books in stores and boutiques everywhere.  I am working with a friend who owns a small publishing company to help me contact distributors and make connections.  My dream is to walk into Target or Costco someday and see my coloring books sitting on the shelf.  Just think how cool you'd feel if you saw one of these books on the shelf and knew that without your support, it wouldn't be there (thanks in advance)!  

Rewards:

Please look to the side to see all of the rewards I am offering.  International backers...I wish we could ship to you for free...we're not there yet but we would absolutely love to send a book to you...please make sure to add a shipping donation to your pledge.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND SUPPORT!!!

P.S. My brother Micah Dahl Anderson wrote the song and he and his awesome wife Camille did the video...they are the coolest. The End.
