Today is Thanksgiving in the US!
I thought it would be fitting to share a post and review about
something I am GRATEFUL for!
I am grateful for ADULT COLORING BOOKS!!!
I just love coloring and feel like this is something I will enjoy for the remainder of my life! So in addition to being grateful I am THANKFUL to Doodle Art Alley Books for sharing their most awesome coloring books with my viewers and I!
OK, so I may be a bit obsessed with coloring! I find it to be one of the best activities I can do to help myself relax!! It can be done everywhere. I color while waiting for appointments, while watching (rather listening to) TV or while my kids are busy playing Legos!! I have begun carrying coloring supplies with me...just in case there is time to color while out and about!
|DOODLE ART ALLEY BOOKS are my absolute FAVORITE coloring books EVER! I just love everything about them! I love the quotes, the detail, the designs and the size! I use them as inspiration quotes on the bathroom mirror for my kids (and myself) to see each morning. I switch the pictures out from time to time to keep things fresh. The boys think that is a great way to start their day! I use these pictures as thank you cards and for other occasions that would constitute a greeting card. I feel that this is such a more personal way to let people know that you are thinking of them!!! |
In addition to the practical purposes of the finished product the actual process of coloring it both relaxing and therapeutic! I make sure to set aside 20 minutes nearly daily for coloring and I feel so much better when I get my time in! I think there is something very wonderful that happens when you color and I found that is it one of my favorite things to do!!! This whole series of books are all wonderful and each book focuses on something a bit different than the others! All the books are awesome and I HIGHLY recommend them! I cannot wait to see what other books that come out and I hope I am lucky enough to review them here for all of you!!!
