‘Tis the season for gifts! And I have been really productive so far this year : I have already made or bought a lot of gifts. And now I need to think about gift wrapping.
In the last few years I have made it a tradition to make my own gift tags from hand-drawn printables and color them myself – a unique way to add “presence” to presents! And the gift recipients so appreciate the extra thought I put in to the wrapping.
Marjorie Sarnat recently published another great coloring book with cats and kittens, this time with a Christmas theme. The 31 designs are printed single-sided and are complex enough to keep you coloring for a while.
If you (or someone you love) are anything like me you are trying to manage chronic pain caused by injuries (check!), arthritis (check!), headaches (check!) or sore muscles. Coloring helps distract our minds from the suffering, but sometimes you want something to complement it.
Enter Sunny Bay’s versatile Microwavable Extra Large Body Heat Wrap. In a cheery Buffalo plaid, this 10″ x 24″ cordless heating pad will quickly become your go-to solution for pain and soreness. You simply put it in the microwave (or freezer) for the best hot (or cold) therapy for your aching body.
It is a “bit” early, but this has been an odd year….so why not kick off the holiday season, and the 2020 Holiday Gift Guide, early and with a huge giveaway?
I have partnered with Home Jobs by Mom to bring you a giveaway for a $250 Amazon Gift Card! Imagine all the gifts you could buy for friends and family! Or the coloring books, pens, markers, colored pencils and accessories you could get for yourself!
If you are in the mood for some new coloring books, the publishers are on a roll in September! Whether you are warming up for the holidays (really!), focusing on your mindfulness practice, or even looking forward to Halloween, I’ve gone through the new publications to give you some ideas – even ones that will expand your skills from coloring to drawing!
One of the things I love the most about Christmas is that it’s the one time of year when we take a break from life and just enjoy time with family, doing things we love. For my family this year the activity is coloring, of course!
A wonderful source for inspiration for me this year has been Sarah Renae Clark and her Christmas printables.
