Yes, adult coloring books are all the rage. At first, when I went looking for one, I only saw a couple different books and I saw them everywhere. Mandalas and butterflies were hot. Then, I received one as a gift. But it wasn’t until MaryLou Falstreau came out with her beautiful, inspirational coloring book that I found the one I’m not only enjoying, myself, but going to give as gifts. Let me tell you about it.
You may remember MaryLou from the blog post I did about her Women and the Hourglass products. I wrote about the inspirational card deck, but she’s got greeting cards, fine arts prints and now, a beautiful coloring book at her online store.
Each page is an affirming, inspirational thought. It’s spiral-bound for easy use and what I like best is that there are no intricate little pieces to color in, leaving me plenty of brain time to think about what the page is telling me.
I just love coloring in this high-quality book. And yes, I colored these! The coloring book is $18 and you can order it from her site. You may even want to order a few more things because her work is irresistible.
But don’t do what I did: I colored too many pages over two days, gripping colored pencils. That, on top of my mouse-work and wielding the DVR remote to fast forward and program caused me to have a little bit of a repetitive motion injury. Yes, I know. Only I would get injured from sedentary activities. And THIS, my friends, is why I absolutely can not be left to my own devices in the gym. Just imagine what that would be like.
But you can see the temptation to color and color. So I got markers, which are easier for my fingers.
You want this coloring book. And you want some other things, too. What fabulous gifts! Why not browse her site here and then visit her online store here to order. Or, there’s a page on her site that lists the many retailers who carry her beautiful line.
PS Her limited edition prints here are just lovely. My favorites are Love as If and New Beginnings. But I also like Ruby and Down Doggie and, and…I love them ALL. I wish I had more wall space in my house! But if I open a little office one day, for sure a few of these gorgeous prints will hang on the walls. Oh, did I mention they are well-priced, too?
MaryLou and I came together as online friends after I found her card deck, and the we moved on to the telephone. She’s a beautiful soul. But then, I don’t have to tell you. Just look at her stunning art.
