Fun with Coloring

Friday, January 15, 2016



Hello friends.  Have you tried coloring with adult coloring books yet?  Well, I received this coloring book from my Mom for Christmas.  I love this coloring book as it's theme is Paris.


One evening recently, I decided to color a page out of the book, and I picked a page that featured pastries.  I spent about an hour coloring and watching TV, and I really had a fun time and enjoyed myself.  My mom also included crayons with the book and I used them to color the page.  You can also use colored pencils if you have them.  This is such a great stress reliever, relaxing, and you can have fun at the same time.  If you want to purchase a book, they sell them at various places such as Michaels craft store, any wholesale warehouse store, Barnes & Noble book store, and Amazon.  I have also noticed that if you google free coloring pages, their are pages to download online.

I hope I have convinced you to try this sometime.  Have you done anything lately that was fun?  I'd love to know.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Thanks everyone and enjoy!

  3. Julie I am the nursery director at our church and sometimes I like to sit and color with the kids. Sometimes I enjoy it more than they do. :) I guess I should do it more often.

  6. It is amazing how many books that are out there on the market, it seems everywhere you go you see them, I bought one that is a smaller size, hoping I can use them for my cardmaking. Love those gifts that bring us joy and are relaxing :)

  9. I have had one for about 6 months and I really like it. It would be fun to have a coloring book party. Mine is a gardening one and I got Kelly one for Christmas, and she kinda looked at me strangely until I told her that it was an adult coloring book. Hopefully she likes it, She used to love to color when she was young, time will tell.

    Have a super weekend and take Bosco for a long walk before it gets tooooo cold.
    Hugs,

  14. Hi Julie, love that page of pastries. You did pretty coloring. I too got one for Christmas and haven't had the time to work in colored pencils yet, but I know it will be fun just to relax and color in the evening. Finding time for me is the key!! The books are everywhere. I was at Joann's the other day and they had shelves and shelves of coloring books. It really has taken off. Have fun and a nice weekend. xo

  17. I have not yet but keep saying I will. As a little girl I used to love to paint by numbers and this would be a good substitute. I see the books but not the pencils but I see you used crayons and those I have!!!

  26. Love your coloring pages, Julie. I have been seeing those coloring books everywhere lately - lots of people on etsy selling them, too. I haven't tried one yet but remember I used to love to color when I was younger - too busy lately crocheting, knitting and doing a little sewing.

  31. Your Paris colouring book is a lot of fun, Julie. I have been getting my mother these books since she went into a nursing home. I always enjoyed it myself when I was a kid and then when my children were growing up I was colouring again. It is a wonderful past time. Thanks for sharing and have fun!

    Blessings,

  32. Thank you for sharing at the Really Crafty Link Party! I end up coloring a lot with my kids, especially with my daughter, the artistic one, but I haven't tried it just as a relaxing hobby. Guess I need to find some coloring books just for myself!

  36. I have always loved coloring and doodling. I have even tried a little water coloring. I bought an adult coloring book from my dil, but haven't tried it yet. Thought I might give it as a gift. I have a friend who is homebound and would love it. A Paris themed book sounds fun. Love the pastries! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  38. I received two of the adult coloring books and colored pencils for Christmas but have yet to sit down and color! I even bought another one for myself and plan to have a girlfriends coloring party. I got one at JoAnn's and one at Walmart. If you have a Five Below near you they have them there too cheap.

  39. Hey sweet friend! My mom absolutely loves the adult coloring books! She always sends me a photo of the most recent page that she completed :) I haven't gotten into them yet simply because I haven't found the time. If I have any free time I am usually reading books for reviews {{smiles}} Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. I hope to see you at the party tomorrow. Hugs!
