Characters from the Coloring Book

Welcome!

The Wellness Family Adventures Coloring Book #1 is a coloring book that teaches children where essential oils come from, how they are made and how they can be used in day to day life, including a few simple and fun recipes. And while it’s aimed at children, adults can enjoy coloring and learning, too. The work is FINISHED, we now need YOUR help to make this project a success.

The Story

Why a coloring book?

This journey in creating The Wellness Family Adventures Coloring Book #1 started when I realized that there wasn’t anything, that I could find, out there in a format that would be a great way to teach children all about Essential Oils.

That’s when I thought of Thomas Florimonte, a long time friend and artist. I thought we could partner up to create something both educational and tons of fun for children to color. Plus, his style of art is perfect for a coloring book.

The Wellness Family Adventures Coloring Book #1 it COMPLETE! Additionally, it can be used no matter what Essential Oil Company used. It was created to serve as a universal way to help educate children on essential oils. It contains 12 full coloring pages complete with some simple DIY recipes.

The Kickstarter has a fun twist to it! You can actually have an EXCLUSIVE Kickstarter Only cover that will feature a caricature of yourself or a family member of your choosing on the front cover. Check out the “Personalized Cover” and “Personalized Cover Package” reward options. And something fun is that you can “Add-on” a copy of the cover with your caricature as a PRINT. Perfect to frame and hang on your wall!

Check out Thomas & BJ's Caricature below under "The Creative Team" to get an idea of how the facial drawing will appear.

We've also added a COOL and Unique Reward for Oily Businesses to add their business logo to the bottom right of the cover when ordering 10 copies. Talk about a creative way to promote your business.

A high resolution logo will need to be submitted to ensure quality printing.

The Kickstarter cover was drawn by Thomas Florimonte and it’s unique in that I (BJ – aka Dr. Mom Knows Best) hand colored it using colored pencils, paint and paint markers. It was definitely fun playing around with the colors. It’s been awhile since I’ve colored anything. Loved how it relaxed me.

My superhero on this project with placing all the cool stuff together (book cover, colors, etc.) to bring everything together with the cover and organization of the inside pages is my main Mann – the Hubby Roland Mann!

Printing the very first PROOF. It was so exciting to see it coming out of the printer. After the print, there were some changes that the TEAM decided to make to make it even better.

The Creative Team

The Money

The primary role of the money we raise is to print and ship the rewards out to you. 

We’d love for this issue to launch us into future projects similar to this one. Our hope is to continue to promote the coloring book at various venues and on various sites so that we can reach as many children as possible. 

Then we’d like to see the creative team earn some money for their time and effort. As you can see, there has been a LOT of time and a LOT of effort put into making this a quality-coloring book. This entire project was done on spec because the creative team believes in it that much. The other thing is that we want to jump into production for a coloring book #2; putting some money into the hands of the creators will go a long way towards helping make that happen.

Risks and challenges

Ka-Blam will be handling the fulfillment. They are fantastic!

BJ has over five years experience using Essential Oils. She is no stranger to organizing quality projects through her 20+ years serving as a seasoned student affairs professional at the university level. Her love of teaching is what led to turning this project into a reality.

Thomas has worked steadily in industries where meeting production deadlines is key to success--it's nothing new to any of us. Our team knows what we’re doing!

The hubby, Roland, has provided a great deal of love, support and professional guidance. He was an editor at Marvel and Malibu; he has a long editorial history of putting printed projects together and getting them to market in a timely manner.

The biggest risk may be doing astronomically better than we anticipated and then being tasked with the shipping of more coloring books than we expected! We hope that is a problem we have.

We feel the real risks are small. While one can never anticipate "life," that's always a reality. One never knows what cards life will deal you. Fortunately, we're currently all in good health physically and emotionally.
