Are you colouring? I am! No, I haven't regressed to my childhood, adult colouring is the newest fad, actually, I might be slow to the party, but it really seems to be going crazy now - adult colouring - relaxing, soothing, fun, it's wonderful!!!
I'm not making this up - check out Amazon's best seller list, six of the top 20 books are colouring books. Here's an article if you'd like to read a bit more about the colouring craze!
I was on the hunt for something different for a birthday gift - it was my penpal's birthday, after 35 years of exchanging gifts, it can get a bit challenging!

All of a sudden, adult colouring was everywhere - I needed one of those intricate books so then I bought another book a few days later.
This is the discount book I bought, I loved the cover and it has the greatest pictures!
Then I moved on to the more intricate book, the books by this illustrator are very popular, I know of one IG friend who couldn't get it, sold out, so guess I'm lucky to have it!
It took me days to finish this page - I wasn't content with my original purchase of 20 coloured pencils, I NEEDED more colours, I went for the box of 40, the last time I was at the store, I bought a small box of metallic pencils - pencils and colouring books, oh, my...
That was my second page, now I'm working on one with bugs.
August 2 is National Colouring Book Day - I'll be colouring, in my favourite colouring place - outside, under the umbrella. Will you be colouring?
