Currently Obsessed

{mandala coloring book}

As a child coloring was one of my favorite hobbies, so I was pretty pumped when adult coloring books starting popping up everywhere (Target, Michaels, Amazon). I find it so therapeutic to pick up my mandala coloring book, even if only for a few minutes during some downtime. Coloring strikes that perfect balance of being a mindless, calming activity, while also channeling my creative energy. It has become a nostalgic way to unwind and relieve stress. Have you gotten into the coloring craze?

  1. I am actually not into the coloring craze, which seems strange because I am an artist ;) You're artistically talented! You're so lucky that you find coloring relaxing!

  15. I've actually seen these in stores and I'm so tempted to get a few and just sit down one evening or when I'm feeling stressed. Instead of sitting on the computer, it's a lovely way to take your mind of things! :)

  24. It's funny because now that my boys started using coloring books, I often find myself coloring with them. However, I still haven't mastered staying in the lines!
