Stress reliever

This is an adult coloring book. Remember how much fun it was to color as a kid? Well, it can be a stress reliever too. Next time you get the urge, grab that crayon (red it good) and go to town in your book!

Yes. I am a horrible artist, but converted a small room in our house for a studio. A word of warning if you venture beyond coloring books. . .glitter is the herpes of the craft world. That stuff permeates everything.

I saw the words "adult coloring book" and thought it was going to be a Master's and Johnson paint my numbers book.

Here's a link to the Lawyers' Coloring Book. It's pretty funny in a dismal way. Sorry, I guess it's only tangentially related to the OP.

Yes! Check out the ones by Johanna Basford. I just got the "Secret Garden" one and it's fantastic. Of course, it's caused me to splurge on new markers and coloring pencils....

I want a colouring book now. Seems like a great gift for certain friends or family too. I have a big art project planned but it's too big and will take about half a year so I'm procrastinating. This looks like more immediate fun.

I'd go to that party. I miss doing art/crafts with friends.

I can vouch for this. Coloring, glue and scissors and play doh. I have always had a sketch book and now that I have a little girl I have expanded my medium.

I always hear people say "I'm not good at art" but the beauty of it is that you just have to do it, there's no good or bad.

Isn't Sudoku a Phill Collins song?
