Trending: Adult Coloring Books

When I heard that adult coloring books were a thing, I got pretty excited.  My daughter loves creating masterpieces, and I often find myself doodling along as well — it’s actually pretty calming and relaxing. Almost surprised it took so long for this to become a marketed item (man, another missed million dollar idea!).

Check out these fun books I found below…  they’re a great stress reliever, and could also become a personalized masterpiece if you frame it (a great personalized / budget-friendly Valentine’s gift idea!).

    I am obsessed with coloring books right now. What a great stress reliever! So funny that you put the one from Etsy up…I actually bought it a few weeks ago because I could resist it either!
    Happy Wednesday:)

    I love adult coloring books! The designs are almost as pretty black and white as they are colored in. I have been coloring with my sharpies lately (in lieu of colored pencils) because I love the vibrancy. AND as you mentioned, I colored a dragonfly and framed it for my mom because she loves them!

    I love the idea of this. I want to buy a huge box of markers and get coloring. I just wish I had more time!
