The Happiness Project Mini Posters Coloring Book: Pure joy

3 April 2017 | Comments [3] »

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!

I'm in a coloring magazine!

1 September 2016 | Comments [0] »

I enjoy coloring in grown-up coloring books and I have blogged here about how I organize my colored pencils and how I organize my coloring Sharpies. I was tickled pink when I was contacted by the editor of The Coloring Studio a quarterly publication from Stampington & Company that’s part magazine, part coloring book, about reprinting some of the information I shared on my blog. The result is an articled called How to Organize Your Coloring Tools.

A storage solution for my colored Sharpies

22 February 2016 | Comments [8] »

Several weeks ago, I blogged about organizing my coloring supplies. I enjoy coloring in coloring books intended for grown ups and I use colored pencils and Sharpies primarily.

In that blog post, I showed how I organize my dozens of colored pencils. (I use Prismacolor Premier pencils.) And I mentioned that I had yet to figure out a good way to organize my colored Sharpies. At the time, they were laying flat in a box all mixed together.

Organizing coloring supplies

1 February 2016 | Comments [5] »

I jumped aboard the adult coloring book craze last June. I loved coloring as a kid and I love it now. It’s so wonderful that so many interesting types of coloring books are available. And the coloring supplies! When I was a kid, I used Crayola crayons. Now, I use pencils, pens, markers…it feels like the sky’s the limit.

How do you relax?

2 September 2015 | Comments [0] »

I think regular rest and relaxation is very, very important. It’s so easy to get caught up in work and chores and family and never take time for yourself. That’s particularly true, I think, when you struggle with disorganization and feel like you should spend all your spare time “getting organized.” (That’s a fallacy, of course.)
