Hi, I’m Ellie!

I’m so glad you stopped by!  Come join me as I create easy and affordable kid crafts, learning resources, holiday projects, and more!

WHAT MY SITE IS ABOUT

Color the Moon is a kid crafting blog dedicated to providing fun crafts and projects to make with + for kids.  Whether you’re a motivated crafter, or a mom just looking for something fun to do with your kids, you’re sure to find something you love here.  My easy-to-make projects will encourage you and your kids to play, learn, and find your inner artist, all while having fun!

WHY I STARTED THIS SITE

I started Color the Moon as a way to keep track of the art projects I was doing with my own children.  Since then it has grown into a way for me to teach others how easy it can be to create fun projects with their kids too.

After graduating college with a BFA in drawing & painting, I worked for six years as a graphic designer.  And now I’m a stay-at-home mom.  Just recently, my son said to me “Mama, do you know what my favorite word is?  Create!”  And I couldn’t agree more.  As someone who has always loved creating, I knew that when I had my own children I wanted to raise them with a love of art too.  And these days, with our kitchen table often doubling as an art studio, you’ll usually find us there playing, learning, and creating.

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME

  • My husband and I started dating when we were just teenagers.  We’ve been together now for 14 years and counting!
  • We have two amazing kids – a boy and a girl – who make me laugh and inspire me everyday with their cleverness and creativity.
  • I can’t stand the smell of coffee but I love drinking tea, especially while reading a good book.
  • I think everything tastes better with ranch on it! yum!

WHAT DOES THE NAME  Color the Moon  MEAN?

One of my favorite quotes is:

Reach for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.

~ Les Brown

Color The Moon is an invitation to think outside the creative box.  As children, we are fearless in our creativity.  In a child’s eyes, a grey moon can be painted pink, or green, or purple, and that’s ok!  Color the Moon is meant to encourage kids to hold on to that boundless creativity, and to dream big.  Because sometimes, the result is so much more than you could have imagined.  So go ahead, color the moon.
