I started a new job recently and things have been a little stressful around our house lately. I’ve been looking for new ways to unwind. Then I came across a little thing called adult coloring books. You read that right. This is not a drill. This is coloring book bliss.
There are so many wonderful coloring book options out there, but I chose this one:
Plus these colored pencils:
And it’s amazing. There are so many intricate details to get lost in. So many color combination choices. You could dive into this book and not resurface for hours. Instead of only losing yourself in ANOTHER season of Arrow, (which I am definitely not doing right now…cough) use your immensely creative mind to turn a flat, black and white outline into a deep, beautiful garden, you can catch up on your favorite show, kill that bottle of wine, AND create a work of art. I know my husband will just love when our refrigerator is covered in these coloring book pages.
In all honesty, I’m still searching for something that will give me that zen feeling, and I’m not sure this is it. But I am sure that it helps. The nostalgia doesn’t hurt either. Enjoy your coloring book bliss.
