Love What You Do – Monthly Coloring Book Giveaway

Love What You Do – Monthly Coloring Book Giveaway

It seems ages ago now,  but way back in January 2017 I decided that this year was all about feeling positive and doing good things.    So often when we color our pages, we compare ourselves to others and forget to celebrate the joy of the journey.   The joy of just coloring for the sake of it. Just to relax and feel good about ourselves and our time with our art and pretty pencils or markers.

Often we forget that we are all at different stages of the coloring journey.  This wonderful hobby is not about comparing our picture to others, but celebrating the beautiful art that we have added our hearts to.

So every month I propose we celebrate our accomplishments by uploading one picture that you have completed during the month that you love.   It doesn’t matter if you went out of the lines πŸ™‚  It doesn’t matter if you made an oops on it.    It doesn’t matter if you used budget pencils or expensive pencils or your kid’s crayons πŸ™‚  It doesn’t matter if you think you could have done better.    The only things that matter are that you colored it this month and that YOU LOVE IT!    It’s all about loving what  you do, feeling confident, supporting one another and enjoying yourself x

About the author


I'm Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I'm all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.

  • Guess I will have to get a Creative Haven coloring book…off to the wish list.

    Any suggestions Lea, since you know my history???
    Thank you


    • The giveaway is every month so you have plenty of time to choose a book πŸ™‚ I’ll have a look later at some of your pics you submitted so I can get an idea of what you like to color in πŸ™‚ Happy coloring x

      • I color everything..mandalas..abstract…patters…whjmsical….it al just depends on how intricate ..
        Thank you sweet lady.

        • I’ve had a look at the Amazon catalogue for Creative Haven and have a few that you may want to check out – funnily enough I do not have any of these books. Remember that Dover that owns Creative Haven provides free coloring pages if you sign up to their Facebook list. That’s a nice way of seeing if you enjoy coloring a picture from the book before committing to buying it. Here’s the list which were selected on the basis that they larger areas of open space to color and you could use a color wash for smaller elements – In Full Bloom (magnified views of flowers) Animal Mosaics Tropical blooms (larger flowers) due for release May 17, 2017 Dynamic Designs Butterfly Mandalas due out May 17, 2017 – have fun x
