My New Creative Outlet

This:


Adult colouring books.

It makes me feel like a kid again. And I love it. It's also a great way to unwind and get rid of stress.

Are any of you doing this?

  2. These are so popular and there are so many different types.
    Fairy Garden
    Enchanted Forest
    Animals
    Patterns
    Owls
    Everything Celestial ... etc... etc...

    But I've not seen Cars or Space themes - yet !!!

    I do think they are a wonderful idea, and very relaxing

    All the best Jan

  3. I love my adult coloring books, especially my swear word one. There's something so soothing about coloring the F bomb beautiful shades of pink ad purple.

  7. Kind of doing them; step grand daughter likes to color so when she is over, I'll color a picture of two with her :) You are right, it is relaxing!

  8. Hey Martha,

    What a colourful idea and no doubt, most therapeutic. A really good friend created a Mandala for me and it's hanging on my kitchen wall.

    Take care, eh.

  11. I have always loved to color. I just use the children's books. The new adult books are soooooo expensive.

    Enjoy.

    1. Any colouring book will do, Gail! I pick mine up on sale or at thrift shops. Because you are right...they are expensive!

    2. Mum's actually still in hospital, as I type this on the 15th june, so three weeks now. The surgery was delayed because she got sick and ended up in ICU but I'll do another post in a few weeks.
