Color Your Way to Fun, Inspiration, and Relaxation.
Independence Is Happiness features 60 doodle art images of inspiring quotes by famous women. Images are printed on one side of the page for all ages to color.
These quotes have stood the test of time. The words of wisdom come from more than 30 amazing women well worth celebrating, including Susan B. Anthony, Jane Austen, Elizabeth Blackwell, Emily Dickinson, Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, and more.
The notable women featured in this book were activists, advocates, authors, humanitarians, lecturers, novelists, poets, pioneers, scientists, and more. The appendix shares brief profiles of these extraordinary trailblazers and wonderful women all.
Each doodle art image has been carefully selected to provide plenty of enjoyment, inspiration, and relaxation.

Samantha SnyderSamantha Snyder has been doodling her whole life. While teaching elementary school, she often drew up coloring pages and printables for her students and fellow teachers. She decided to start sharing her creations and in 2008, Doodle Art Alley was founded. 

Doodle Art Alley is dedicated to giving those squiggly lines the proper credit they deserve. Who would have thought that such a small and simple idea could possess so much potential? There are lots of fun art activities, tips and information to read through and enjoy at, along with hundreds of free coloring pages and printables.

By far 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!!!  

In Independence is Happiness you get to color and learn.  This book is filled with quotes from famous woman in history.  That is pretty awesome because it is a bit of a history lesson, a bio on each woman in the back of the book, in addition to being a fun activity.  This book is filled with 60 coloring pages some new and some you may have seen from other coloring books in this series.  It was inspiring to be able to color these pages because all these 30+ woman were influential in the world and now I am sharing these beautiful pages with my sons and others.  

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!!!
