I Bought My First Adult Coloring Book

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Colouring Book

I bought my first adult coloring book! I’ve wanted one for quite a while, but I just didn’t have the peace of mind to actually sit down and spend time coloring. Now that my house is organized, I have the time. Or at least, I’m making the time. It’s so relaxing, and so much fun.  I loved to color as a kid, so I feel like I’m back in my element.

It’s pretty good therapy, too. If you didn’t already know, I suffer from anxiety and depression, so I find it a great escape. The book is so detailed and complicated, that I find myself just getting lost in it. I know that sounds pretty stupid, but it’s true. When I’m coloring, my creative juices are flowing, and my biggest source of stress is trying to figure out what to do, to make the pages come alive.

Another bonus is, when I’m coloring…  I don’t seem to have the desire to snack, and pick at food. Whatever works. Sigh…

I had a hard time deciding which coloring book to buy, as they’re all so beautiful. Of course, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland won out. I was thinking about buying more than one, but I’m glad I didn’t. The book is so detailed and complicated to color, that I think it’ll take me at least four months to finish it. Maybe more.

I know that a lot of people get super detailed with their books, and use all kinds of coloring mediums. I’m just gonna start with colored pencils. Once I get back in the groove, maybe I’ll try to dabble with some water paints and other mediums.  I’ll post my progress as I go along.

    Welcome to the adult coloring club! I never thought about it, but the “no snacking” benefit is a really good one to add to all the others!
