|ALL the giggles|
Coloring, for enjoyment's sake, is suppose to be relaxing and meditative and calming and all sorts of good for you stuff and goodness!
Not sure who said any of these things or if maybe a case study was done at some point or maybe it was just a bored Amazon employee who a few months ago decided what the next new 'in' thing was going to be and stealth-fully started inserting pictures of coloring books everywhere on Amazon (what? this doesn't happen? ;)
|Coloring and a nice cuppa = perfect!|
I began my journey of enlightenment by first seeking out the perfect book (because I was convinced such a thing existed).
To preform this task I enlisted the help of the highest authority in the land:
I asked Twitter.
And specifically the OTSPSecretSister folks, what adult coloring books (hehehehehe) they enjoyed.
After many suggestions and thanks to the wonders of Amazon Prime, I found, ordered and received my key to ALL THE RELAXATION.
Seriously, this is like the best thing ever!
I finally decided on 2 books by Johanna Basford. The Secret Garden and The Enchanted Forest.
Johanna Basford was a favorite among my Twitter peeps and I have to agree -- I've started on The Secret Garden (EF is backordered) and it's so good I want to carry it everywhere with me.
I'm also seriously considering pre-ordering The Lost Ocean so I can fill it with all the blue!
Here are some other suggestions from some wonderful folks! (all links are to Amazon cause the pics are better / I'm not an affiliate)
And! Because I think everyone could benefit with a little more relaxation in their life, I'm giving away 1 coloring book PMITBP (previously mentioned in this blog post).
Using The Book Depository for this one -- if they ship to your country you can enter!
If you win, you can choose any book mentioned on this page, or another (under $15) if you don't fancy any of these -- I'll send some Book Depository links if you can't decide!
Open till September 4th - I'll pick and contact the winner that weekend.
If anything in the Rafflecopter form looks wonky let me know!
Happy coloring everyone!
