Was feeling creative this morning, decided to dabble in my pastels. Want to make bigger ones, but this is a start. I also need a pen that can write better over pastels, my sharpie isn’t cutting it. Any suggestions for a good pen?
I loved coloring as a kid, I remember having a Snow White coloring book, Winnie the Pooh, really all the Disney coloring books were my favorites. It was the best feeling, bringing a splash of color to blank pages. I usually colored outside the lines, but who cares when you’re a kid? I miss those carefree days of expressing oneself without the pressure of a deadline, or the need to prove anything. As an adult we get too consumed with trying to pay the bills, always working trying to stay afloat. When there is a chance of rest, it’s either sleeping or zoning in front of a movie. Every person is different, and we all have our unique interests, but everyone is in need of some carefree hobbies that distract from the hustle and bustle. If coloring doesn’t strike your fancy, find something that does. My sister and I occasionally go to my Aunt’s house for girl time, coloring and drinking wine. It’s an activity that doesn’t care your age, it welcomes you at any stage of life, our coloring dates bring laughter, relaxation, and quality time. Last night my best friend, and I went to Michael’s Art Store looking for new coloring books. We made the mistake of asking the sales associate for “adult coloring books” she gave us a funny look, we quickly added grown up coloring books for clarification. She said “oh ok, for a minute there I thought you meant red curtain private section adult coloring books, and we don’t have that.” 😂 It’s easy to forget that the word adult has a couple different meanings, gotta love awkward moments like that! She also said the coloring books have been flying off the shelf, ever since TV talk shows, have been talking about coloring as a great way to let go of stress, and unwind. Interesting that all of the sudden coloring is becoming the latest craze, it’s always been for every age not just for kids! The next time you have a bad day, or negativity is taking hold, grab some crayons/colored pencils and decompress, positive thoughts only!
