Nothing like being ill to really experience how coloring can make you feel better!

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been only one of the many who has been suffering from a nasty bout of bronchitis, meaning coloring is about the only activity I have felt up to other than the everyday basics and sleeping – lots of sleeping!

I thought I’d share with you the coloring pieces I have completed while I’ve been sick from some of the adult coloring books I’ll be reviewing in the next couple of weeks.

Scandia: A Coloring Journey, by  Zeena Shah

Scandinavian/Nordic design and lifestyle has been so “hot” lately, and this coloring book is a perfect example of why.  Fabric designer Zeena Shah has created a beautiful book full of traditional motifs with a focus on nature and wildlife. Available at Amazon.com and Book Depository.

The Executive Coloring Book, by Karen L. Williams

coloring bookThis coloring book comes from Lulu.com, a self-publishing website that has some really nice offerings. The relatively simple and open designs allow for practicing shading and other techniques, and at the same time are great for anyone who has vision challenges. The spiral binding allows for easy access to pages. Available at Lulu.com.

Inkspirations for Women: Color Your World Happy, by Marci Shimoff & Judy Clement Wall

I’ve reviewed an Inkspirations coloring book before (check it out here), and I really like them.  This one is focused on joy, and is an eclectic mix of objects of nature, abstracts and scenes interspersed with quotes and affirmations. Pages are perforated. Available at Amazon.com and Book Depository.

  1. I really like the Succulents with Prismacolor Premier pencils. I don’t have any talent but I keep trying. I just copy others work until I get better.

  2. I’d love to have the 1st and 3rd color books. I’ve been coloring for over 35 yrs. Im sorry to hear your not feeling good. I hope you feel better soon. Your pictures are beautifully done.

  3. I love your peacock. That is really well done, the colors are perfect. Coloring makes me happy. We do it a lot especially in the winter.
