Okay, so today is going to be a little different. Instead of specific tutorials, this post today is to give you a few different resources and online portals to explore.

The first is Color Our Collections, which began in 2016, and now has colouring-book style pages from the collections of museums, libraries, and archives all over the world. They are ALL available for free download so you can print them out yourself and color all!

Here’s the link: ColorOurCollections.org

If you’re looking for more historical visual wonders, the Smithsonian’s digital image library is a huge and deep collection! You can browse by topic or by specific collections.

Check it out HERE.

And one other, the Biodiversity Heritage Library’s Flickr account is an amazing resource to browse through.

Next is for all you knitters or people interested in knitting! This first link is a great resource for tutorials, project patterns, and materials. It has all you need to get started making your own knit garments and objects.

We’ll be back next time with more tutorials, but we hope you enjoy these online portals and little snippets today!
