Kids Back In School? Time To Relax & Color? #

It was a really quick summer in my eyes but I know a ton of folks who are so happy school is open and the kids have gone back. Mine go back tomorrow.

Thanks to Wendy Piersall there is a beautiful coloring book for adults that will have you undoubtedly buying yourself a new set of colored pencils.

I did!

The idea behind the book is to Relax and de-stress from your busy life by coloring this collection of whimsical mandalas that incorporate mystical imagery into the patterns

Relax, focus, reach a higher state of mindfulness and simply enjoy yourself as you artfully turn the intricate shapes in this book into stunning works of art. Coloring Dream Mandalas offers you an imaginative array of inspiring quotes and beautiful images, including:

•Dream catchers
•Stars and Moons
•Sacred Symbols

I love these books because I get completely lost and focus all my attention on what I am doing. It allows me an hour to just forget the bills, kids, work, blog, life, and remind myself that I am a person not just a machine.

Here is the one I just finished.

And this is the one I plan on doing before work tomorrow after the kids leave for school.

I love all the shapes and honestly when I doodle I tend to do things like this. I had no idea they were called Mandalas.
