Questions and Answers

I've received a few questions recently about my coloring pages, so I'm going to take just a minute to provide some answers.

First, if anyone wants to link directly to my coloring pages, I have one request... please link to them somewhere on my blog instead of directly over at Scribd. The reason for that is really for your benefit, not mine. I don't get paid to blog, or accept ads and it doesn't benefit me at all to try to drive up my traffic. My reasoning is that if I ever move the documents from Scridb, all of those other links will be broken and aren't broken links so frustrating! Should I decide to move the docs to another hosting site for reasons of technical difficulties or just personal preference, you can be sure that the links on my blog will always be up-to-date and accurate. (If you already have links directly to Scribd on your site, please don't feel bad! : )

Also, if you do link to them, please do not post pictures or screen shots of the blank coloring pages in their entirety (although, pictures of your kids getting ready to color them always tickle me!). I am afraid that when this was done in the past, a picture was posted with the copyright removed. When I asked for the pictures of the my coloring pages to be replaced with just links, the site owner decided to remove all of my coloring pages in their entirety. So again, I want to state, I don't mind links, but I don't see the need to provide a "preview" of a coloring page especially when doing so might compromise someone else's hard work.

And lastly, more as a reminder than anything else, everything on my blog is shared freely, especially the coloring pages. They are not to be sold or profited from in any way. You can print as many copies of them as you like and share them with your friends, but if they are sold or even linked to on a site that charges for access to content, I will enforce my copyrights.


  1. Once again I would like to thank you for your generosity. And boy was I grateful to your foresightedness regards linking to the blog and not scribid recently:) I was so grateful we had Faith Filled Days links linked back to here!

  2. I would also like to thank you for sharing your hard work. My kids have enjoyed coloring the various saints.

  3. You know we LOVE your coloring pages! Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing these with all of us!

    I know I have linked to them many times in the past. I *think* I have mostly linked to your blog, but may have, on occasion, linked directly to Scrib... I will have to look into that and update the links if I can find them and be sure to link only to the actual posts in the future.

    I can totally understand you not wanting your images reposted. I would (and do) feel the same way.

    Thank you again!

  4. It makes complete sense to link to your blog directly. I'm sorry that people are trying to profit from your work that you wanted to share freely. That has to be a bit annoying. You do something for free. Then someone tries to take it and make money off of it:(

    Thank you again for sharing your artwork. And my links are fixed now. They come straight here:)

  5. Thank you Charlotte for making your coloring pictures available to us all. My children continue to enjoy them. They have been and continue to be a fun addition to our feast day celebrations.

    God bless you.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
