Being a new mom to an infant, I rarely have any time for myself. Even when my son takes naps, those precious 30-min windows are used to get things done. “Me time” is a rarity and I savor every second of it when I get the opportunity.
Lately, one of my favorite things to do to unwind is picking up some color pencils and doodle away. I’m not an artist by any stretch of the imagination, but I love the simple joy of coloring. And it looks like I’m not the only one. I recently discovered the hugely popular adult coloring trend and I was hooked the first time I tried it. If you’re not sure this is something you’d enjoy, take baby steps like me. You don’t have to go all out and buy a fancy coloring book just yet. I first started by using Prismacolor coloring pages from Michaels. These aren’t your typical child coloring pages. The designs of these coloring pages are so pretty and intricate that they make you feel so excited coloring them. They best part is, they’re absolutely free. “Click here and select “free pages” to download your own free Prismacolor coloring pages!
As for the color pencils, I’m using Prismacolor color pencils which I picked up from Michaels. They’re rich, highly pigmented and go on so smoothly. I just love how the colors pop right off the pages. Make sure to check out Michaels coupons for additional savings, in newspapers and online!”
