I've always loved coloring. When I was little, give me a box of crayons and a princess coloring book and I was good to go. Last year, when I was teaching preschool, I loved chatting with my students over the coloring center in the morning. So when adult coloring books became a thing this year, I was all about it. I bought myself a Christmas-themed one and AJ and I had a few laid-back coloring nights during the craziness of the holiday season. I then got not one, not two, but three coloring books as Christmas gifts.
I wish I could tell you that I make a lot of time for things like coloring, but it's just not the case. Other creative passions and many more practical tasks come first most days. However, I won't lie...coloring has a way of relaxing me and helping me just chill out. In fact, the one time that I do make time for coloring is when I get a chance to watch some TV. Coloring & TV just goes well together, doesn't it? In the midst of a stressful week, I love nothing more than to grab a cup of warm tea, snuggle into a cozy blanket, and plop myself on the couch to color while I watch 20 girls vie for a certain single guy's heart (you know, ladies!).
One of the things that I've found that I love coloring the most is words. I can sometimes go cross-eyed looking at all the tiny details that are found in the adult coloring books that are popular in stores, so when I found my Christmas coloring book, I was totally delighted to discover that it had a ton of hand-lettering in it! So, I created a few hand-lettered coloring pages that you can download and enjoy for yourself.
While coloring with the same colored pencils that you did when you were a kid can seem sentimental, it didn't take me long into my adult coloring journey to discover that they just don't hold up the way I remember. When I found Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils at my local Michaels, I was not only amazed at how many colors there were to choose from, but also at the quality. I happily tossed aside my childhood crayons, markers, and colored pencils and upgraded to the beautiful hues and obvious quality of Prismacolor pencils and markers!
So, if you need to chill out and relax, I've created two fun (and frame-able!) coloring pages for you to download for free. Grab your Prismacolor Premier colored pencils and relax and color!
