There are some things in life that I still enjoy, now I’m an adult, just as much as I did when I as a child.
An ice-cream with a flake (from an actual ice-cream van), paddling in the sea, kicking a big pile of crunchy autumn leaves (this was mentioned in my 50 favourite things!) and I’ve since found out that ‘colouring in’ is one of those things!
There has been a huge resurgence in anti stress colouring books for adults recently — even our village post office has been selling a few.
But none I’ve seen are quite as lovely as ‘The One and Only Adult Colouring Books’, that come from Phoenix Yard Books.
The One and Only Adult Colouring Books
These are pretty spectacular, let me tell you; beautifully designed and full of intricate black and white patterns, to colour in.
Initially I very nearly dismissed them; thinking it was a childish thing to be doing. But on receipt of these gorgeous books, I got totally immersed in their designs.
And once I started colouring, I had to keep coming back to do a little more!
A bit like a jigsaw — you just can’t leave it alone! And as I’ve said before, why should we put away childish things, once we’re grown up? The simple things are often the best; and these simple colouring books for adults are fabulous.
If you want to do something gently creative — and very relaxing — mindfulness colouring books for adults is the hobby for you.
You can totally transport yourself away and while away the hours, crayoning these beautiful patterns.
Keep your knitting — colouring in is where it’s at these days ;)
Thanks so much to Phoenix Yard Books for generously sending these lovely books to test-drive.
This is an unpaid partnership with Phoenix Yard Books but all thoughts, words and images — as ever — are entirely my own.
