The Escapist Coloring Club – June 2019 mid-month reminder

It’s the middle of June already, so here’s your mid-month reminder to get colouring! You’ll find the links for the two bloggers who have participated already this month below. Make sure you check them out! I’ll turn off the comments in this post and redirect you to the June 1st prompt to link your entries there, if you haven’t already posted. Or if you have, feel free to leave another link!

Here’s what I’m working on this month. I’m half-way through it, so I should have it all coloured in by July 1st.

I’m loving the fact that I can listen to an audiobook while I work. I just finished Neil Patrick Harris’s Choose Your Own Autobiography. So funny. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Here’s the link, if you’re interested in buying it. I highly suggest listening rather than reading.  https://www.amazon.com/dp/0385347014

Anyhoo, back to colouring.

Thank you to our members who have posted so far! Here they are:

One-Liner Wednesday – It’s True

Photo: A red poppy in a field of golden grasses and the quote, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
― Margaret Mead

Do you agree?


If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our brand new badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – June 1, 2019

It’s June 1st! Welcome to The Escapist Coloring Club prompt. If you’d like to join the club, all you have to do is post pictures of your own colouring, your kids’ colouring, or that of anyone you know and have permission to share. This is a month-long prompt, which means you have all of June to link back here.

I’m not entirely happy with the result of my May colouring project. I did most of it whilst listening to an audiobook. Not sure if that had anything to do with my apparently crazy choices for colours, but to me it lacks coherency. I like the closeups better than the big picture. But hey, not every project can be a winner. And I still enjoyed the escape I had while I worked on it, so I win!!

Here’s the before.

And here are bits of the after. (Click for a closer look.)

And here’s the entire thing.

Because I didn’t do a mid-month reminder in May, here are all the participants from last month. Please check them out if you haven’t already!

I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful projects throughout the coming month!

Please find the “rules” below.

1. This prompt is designed for relaxation. As such, I encourage you to take your time to link your own post here, BUT, when you comment, please click the “Notify me of new comments via email” button. That way you’ll receive a notification when someone else links their project and you won’t miss anything. As with all the prompts, the more you visit others, the more your community of like-minded people grows.

2. Ping back! It’s important so that I and other people can come and read your post. To execute a pingback, just copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into the body of your post. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

3. There will be a prompt on the first of every month. I will try to post the prompt here on my blog at 9:30am -5 GMT. The prompt will simply be photos of my own colouring project. If you would like to host this prompt on your blog on another week during the month, either once, occasionally, or on a regular basis, please e-mail me at hilllindagmaru at gmail dot com and we’ll get you set up. All I ask is that you have an active blog and that you regularly reply to comments and visit other blogs.

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – May 1, 2019

It’s the first day of May and time to welcome you to The Escapist Coloring Club prompt! If you’d like to join the club, all you have to do is post pictures of your own colouring, your kids’ colouring, or that of anyone you know and have permission to share.

I decided to go nuts with the colours for my April calendar page. I just finished it ten minutes ago!

Here’s the before.

And here are bits of the after.

And here’s the entire thing.

As much as I’ve always loved dragons (as I said in last month’s prompt post), I love butterflies too. I have a tattoo of a butterfly too!

I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful projects throughout the coming month!

The Escapist Coloring Club – April 2019 mid-month reminder

Here we go again, only a few days short of the end of the month. My intentions were good, but my body was weak. Still, here’s your before-the-end-of-the-month reminder and general highlighter of all the posts that have been linked to the April 1st prompt. Make sure you check them out! I’ll turn off the comments in this post and redirect you to the April 1st prompt to link your entries there, if you don’t want to wait for May 1st.

Here’s what I’m working on this month. I think I’m going to get it finished.

Thank you to our members who have posted so far! Here they are:

I really enjoyed colouring my March calendar page. So disappointed I didn’t get to finish it.

Here’s the before.

And here are bits of the after.

And here’s the entire thing.

I’ve always loved dragons. I even have a tattoo of one! I think that’s what made this project so much fun.

I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful projects throughout the coming month!

The Escapist Coloring Club – March 2019 mid-month reminder

I know, I know, there’s only a week left to go before April gets here. But I’d like to take the opportunity to remind everyone to get their projects done and their links in, and to give a shout out to the bloggers who have joined in so far this month. They’re all so awesome! Make sure you check them out! I’ll turn off the comments in this post and redirect you to the March 1st prompt to link your entries there.

Here’s what I’m working on this month. I’m about halfway through it: all I’ve coloured so far is the dragon and the crown. I’m still hoping to get it finished in the next week.
