A New Morning Ritual

Who doesn't like to color?
I purchased an adult coloring book to take on a recent trip.
I didn't think I could pack card stock, die cuts, and
all the other fun stuff we use for card making.
The coloring book was great for the longer bus trips, was easy to pack, 
and I could fit 2 pencil cases with water brushes, watercolor pencils,
and even the sharpener as you can see in the photo.

So here's my new morning ritual.

Here are some finished pages ready to cut in half and use for cards.

This is the book I purchased and I like it because of its size.
Unfortunately, the pages are printed front and back 
so you have to make a difficult choice if you want to use them for backgrounds.

One of my DT positions ended so I will find myself with extra time.
Where will you find me?  Yep, you guessed it!

Great idea! I like the fact that you'll be able to use some of them for cards, all that gorgeous colouring needs to be used, Cathy x

What a fun idea. I travel by train to work everyday and this would be perfect for me, to take a break from my crochet hook ;-) Happy New Year.

A friend of mine gave me one of these grown up coloring books as part of my Christmas present and I'm looking forward to passing the time when I don't have enough time to craft, or if I don't want to lug all of my supplies downstairs while I watch TV. That's a great idea to use the finished pages for card backgrounds, and I'm happy that my book is only printed on one side each so I don't have to make decisions..!!! Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my Flickr account in the MFP challenge posts and happy new year to you!
