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 college. It was my dream to own and create a coloring book series that I knew kids would love. I thought of everything I wished coloring books were when I was a kid to make sure MY FAVORITE COLORING BOOK had all those qualities. I was able to work on my labor of love for a few years, but unfortunately the responsibility of being an adult brought my momentum to a pause. It was meant to be. The break from my creating my business led to creating my life. I fell in love. I built a career. We bought a house, and got married. I had everything in life that I was just missing one thing.
When the craziness of 2020 happened. Life as I knew it suddenly stopped. My grown-up career was put on pause which turned out to be a much needed break. My outlook on life changed. For the first time in years, I wasn't stressed. I felt like myself again. My head got quiet for long enough to realize I didn't want to live a life without 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 kids. I love seeing kids love coloring. I believe it that can lead to big things for them. It definitely made a difference in my life. And, I don't think coloring as a kid was just a thing apart of my story. I think coloring is the start to a lot of kid's stories. I hope sharing MY FAVORITE COLORING BOOK helps them write it.
