National Coloring Book Day

Today is National Coloring Book Day!   I always had coloring books as a child and never lost my love of coloring.  Apparently lots of adults feel the same as adult coloring books are quite popular.  In fact, I got one for my birthday from two of my favorite people on earth…they obviously know me quite well as they couldn’t have picked a more perfect gift for me.  Here’s what I got:

Coloring Book 1

And to color it in, I got:

Coloring Book 2

Thank you Bob & Julie!  I am going to spend countless hours enjoying this book with its intricate coloring and activities.  What a great gift for anyone who likes to craft!  Actually, Julie got one as a gift and I ooh’ed and aah’ed about it…no subtlety there.

If you’d like to participate in National Coloring Book Day, you can download free coloring book pages and even enter a Natural Beauty Coloring Contest and can find all the details about it here.

I also wanted to share with you a link on how to create your own coloring page.  It’s on the Hints, Tips & Tutorials page as well.  I tried my hand at it just to check out the editing program they recommended.  They warned against picking pictures without a lot of contrast and I can see, after playing with it, why that is so important.  But I’m sharing the original picture and the coloring book page anyway…just because.

If you try making a coloring book page or if you enter the contest, please come back and share with me.  It would make my day!
