Coloring Books for Grown Ups

As a busy Mum sometimes I just need relax and just take time to do things for me. 
When I do get an hour or so to myself when not doing house work or blogging I like to 
watch a good film or have a lovely bubble bath. 

I recently came across these coloring books for grown ups which I think is an excellent creative outlet.
I loved coloring when I was a child and these days I find myself doodling quiet often. 
So I  feel that are fab way for me to unwind at the end of the day while Blake is asleep. 

The books that I were sent are: 
The one and only coloring book for adults 
The one and only mandala coloring book 
The one and only coloring book for traveling adults. 

I love that each of the books have beautiful images that just need to be filled in and with coloring you get to 
get your creative juices flowing with coloring in the images in your way. 

I really love how each of the books have paper that is thick enough to use pencils, crayons, acrylics and some paints. 

I also like that they do a travel version as when your on holiday it's time for you to relax so you can sit back and relax and just free your mind with coloring in the evenings or even if your resting on the beach instead of reading a book. 

Do you think coloring books for grown ups are a good idea?

They're a great idea. My nan is in her 80s and she loves doing them. My sister who is 36 and my niece, 11, do them together too, they find it really relaxing, they get really cool ones, like movies themes. I prefer jigsaws but I think I do them for same reason my sis does colouring.

Yes and no. I totally get it. It's there with embroidery, quilt-making and even knitting whilst watching the guillotine doing her work. it can be sociable too. But I now reverse what my grandmother used to say about reading and writing. "It's not productive. You should be doing something with your hands". Of course, now I know that reading and writing are productive. But is colouring? Doing jigsaws? Sewing samplers? Does it matter if we enjoy it?
