My Story

 My name is Regan Blayne. I've been serious about coloring since I was a kid and serious about art since I was a big kid. I started attending art school when I was thirteen. I didn't stop until I got a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a minor in Art History. Blah blah blah... Anyway, My Favorite Coloring Book is a company I started a couple years after I graduated.  It was my dream to own and create a coloring book series that I would have loved as a kid. I took everything I wished coloring would have been and made six books that had all those things. Sadly, I had to let the responsibility of being an adult bring my momentum to a pause. The break from my business venture led to creating a great life. I fell in love. I built a career. I vacationed like an adult. I got married. And, I completed my dream with a house, pool, and puppy. 

 Then, the craziness of 2020 happened. Life as I knew it suddenly stopped. My  grown-up career was put on pause for an uncertain amount of time. It was a much needed break that changed my outlook.  For the first time in years, I wasn't stressed.  I actually felt like myself again. My head got quiet for long enough to realize I had everything I ever wanted. The only thing missing in my life was My Favorite Coloring Book. 

    So, instead of going back to not being myself, I quit my job. Some people think life is short. I disagree. I think that life is long. It's too long to spend your days doing something you don't love. I love coloring. I love seeing kids love it.  I believe it's a small pastime that can lead to big things for them. It definitely was that for me. I don't think that's just my story, I think it's a lot of kid's stories that I want to be apart of.
