REVIEW:
Hours, no, days of fun!!!
I love coloring. Have loved it my whole life. It's calming, you create beautiful things, and you feel happier seeing the beautiful pictures in color.

I sat down to watch a movie, pulled out the coloring book and pencil crayons, and a couple hours later, couldn't tell you what happened in the movie. It just so happened to be National Coloring Book Day when I started this one, and that was cool too.
These intricate designs take a while to color. It's been over a month for me. I color for a bit, become more relaxed and at ease, then set it aside. I always came back to it when I felt stressed and needed a back from the norm.
Now, I've almost got the first page done.
Okay so I went a little overboard on the colors. The hubby said it was busy as heck, but like I said it was done in pieces and whatever felt good to me at the time. I will have to limit my colors in the next piece.
It was as fun as when I was a kid though. Time flew by, and I am okay with what came out. With coloring books for adults being a big thing right now, this is one people will definitely enjoy for its' designs, and that it will take you some time to get through. This is a great book for taking your mind elsewhere or nowhere at all. 

5/5

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
