The Happiness Project Mini Posters Coloring Book: Pure joy

3 April 2017

I love Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project. She’s a fantastic communicator with amazing ideas. I’ve heard her speak and I love the positivity of her message.

When I learned that she was creating a coloring book, The Happiness Project Mini Posters: A Coloring Book rushed to pre-order on Amazon. Then I forgot about it. What a joy it was to receive it in the mail last week!

This is no ordinary coloring book. She has created 20 mini-posters, each hand lettered with a great, positive quotation (most from Gretchen, some from others). Each sheet is small (7 × 9 inches) and printed on sturdy art board that is easy to pull out of the book. They really are suitable for framing. The level of detail in the coloring is exactly what I like.

Really, it’s this adult colorer’s dream come true.

Here are my first two colored sheets. (I used Faber-Castel Pitt Artist Brush Pens.) I can’t wait to do more!

I think I’m going to do this one next. I think I’ll use Sharpies:

If you like coloring, I strongly urge you to check it out!

Beautiful coloring, Janine! I love the second one especially. It reminds me of a Zen koan that I wrote down: “You are perfect just as you are, and you could use a little work.” I have heard Gretchen Rubin (and others) say that it is characteristic of a profound truth that its opposite is also true. This is a prime example.
