For Allison Sloan Polish, Spoonflower’s president, the only things she needs for a Friday night in is a roll of coloring book wallpaper, a set of Tombow markers, and of course, her three wildly creative young boys. The Polishs quickly fell in love with Tombow markers when they turned an old craft table into a dream coloring station and now they want you to experience the fun too!
“My boys get so excited when I come home with new wallpaper for our art table. It’s one of my very favorite ways to connect with them. We put on music and color for hours; it’s amazing the conversations we have.” – Allison Sloan Polish
