So, I keep seeing these coloring books for teens and adults on other blogs and in bookstores. I am so tempted to buy one. I used to love coloring as a kid. My sister and I won so many coloring contests at our local grocery store that they told our parents that we weren’t allowed to win anymore (total BS by the way, but that is beside the point). Even now, when I color with my daughter, I’m the one who ends up enjoying it more than she does. She gets bored easily. I could color for hours. The one that keeps catching my eye is Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book by Johanna Basford.
It looks AWESOME! This is like an adult coloring-lover’s dream. The images look so detailed. They are just dying for some color, which I would happily like to provide.
So, here’s my dilemma. While I would love to channel my inner eight-year-old and just color all day, it does seem time-consuming. I already have no time as it is, what with my daughter, my job, this blog, reading, etc. I know that if I start, I won’t stop. And since I’m a perfectionist, I would spend a ridiculous amount of time making it perfect and just right. Why does the day only have 24 hours?!
So what do you guys think? Have you bought any? If you have, are they as addicting as I think they might be? And if you haven’t, are you tempted to buy one? Let me know your thoughts on what may become my latest obsession.
