Todays TrendBreakdown is all about coloring books for adults. I first heard about these back in spring and got mine a few months ago. I personally consider myself a creative and visual person and I have really always wanted to be able to draw or have some other way to exercise my creativity. So that is probably the main reason I wanted one of these but what I discovered is so much more. It really is a great way to relax as well take your mind off things and just do something with your hands.
I find they are also something that you can do with your kids or in my case my little sister , she has her own book and the fact that it is something more intricate than a children’s coloring book both excites and challenges her, as well as myself, to be honest looking at how creative she can be also pushes me.
I know the holidays are still a few months away but honestly I feel like these books will save me a lot of head scratching over gift ideas, I have already had so many of my friends look into getting one just with mentioning them , I feel like we don`t do enough creative things in our day-to-day lives and we crave it, so these little books are such a simple inexpensive and honestly easy way of doing that.
If you can`t fine one in your local book store (even thou I think you will , if they got to Romania ) you just need to search online and you will find anything and everything you can dream of. I recommend looking into Millie Marotta and Johanna Basford`s books , they have some great illustrations in there as well as a good variety of different theme books.
These are a few that I have skimed over in the bookstore and completly reccomend!
What do you think of these? Had you heard of them , or have I convinced you to get one?
