A few weeks ago I received my first adult coloring book. Now one thing you should probably know about me is that I LOVE to color. Fun fact: in college, I won a coloring contest between the girls in my dorm. 🙂 I also really love office supplies shopping. It was one of my favorite parts of being a teacher in the classroom. I know…I’m a dork.
I’ve seen these adult coloring books for a while, and they looked interesting. Now that I have one and I’ve started coloring in it, I can understand the craze. It’s very relaxing. I’ve even decided to make a few of my really good ones into Christmas gifts. I figure a frame and maybe a mat (not sure on that yet), and they could be really pretty hanging in a friend or family member’s home. At least, that’s my plan for right now. I’m usually a pretty harsh critic of my own work…especially when it comes to the cakes I make, but I think these aren’t too bad at all. What do you think?
In other news, my husband is definitely off and running on his garage makeover project. He’s going to put in a tool/work bench area, pour a concrete foundation on the side of the house for a shed, and move/rebuild shelves to store everything in the garage.
Oh and my next run is July 4th. Have I mentioned that I haven’t run since um my last race…back in April? This one is a 7-miler so that should be interesting. I’ll let you know how it goes.
