#shareitsaturday / coloring to de-stress; I’ve joined the craze!

It’s official – I’ve joined the adult coloring book craze!

Before I had Brock, I went through an intense time of stress with our work and family. One of the nurses recommended coloring to de-stress.

I decided to buy a book I came across at Sam’s Club.

Then, we had a baby and things got crazier than ever and I waited until Christmas night to actually pick the book up and start coloring.

Oh my goodness, I loved it!

I finally finished my first page last night.

And then, I decided to start another page – but this time I picked an easier one hahah!

I love that this page has white space around it. I’m thinking of adding a scripture and framing this one for one of my girls to put on the wall in their room.

So, this morning I invited Kayla and Kylie to each pick a page out of my book and we colored together!

For today’s #shareitsaturday I wanted to let you know about several books I found online if you’d like to try out the adult coloring craze! I especially love these books because they all incorporate scripture!

If you want to browse books in stores, you can find them at almost any craft store (JoAnn’s, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby – make sure you use a coupon!!) or at Walmart or Target. Look in the book or magazine sections.

I’ve been using mostly markers for my books. I just used what we had laying around the house – a set of cheap markers from IKEA and an art kit that one of my girls got for a gift at some point.

I’d love to see any of your coloring creations, share them via text or Facebook!

    1. Yes, Teresa – I’m more excited about the scripture books than any! They look so cool and they will make great framed gifts too!!

  1. I’ve joined too! Love it but I have to limit my time. Otherwise that’s all I would do all day!!!

    1. Hahah Joyce, Brian made sure to point out your comment as soon as he saw it. I may or may not have spent a few hours or so coloring over the past couple of days… 🙂 I’ve enjoyed the mental break. I needed it!!

  2. I love to color. Maybe I will pick some of those up. I love the ones with the scriptures, I bet they would make great pictures for the walls 🙂

  3. I almost bought one of these online last pm. I loved coloring when little and did so again in college with a great A&P book for learning that stuff! I am thrilled this is a thing again.

    1. Yay!!!! I have totally been thinking about incorporating the pages I color into scrapbooks!!! I think I’ll buy a few of those for door prizes!!
