A fews weeks ago I started this new hobby while I wait for my son during his swimming class in school — color on coloring books. I thought it would be a good way to pull in and get my creative juices flow naturally in me again, hehehe.
Anyway, since it was a good one hour of swim class, I thought about doing something to kill time while my son does his strokes. At first I thought of jotting down notes for my blog or actually writing down my blog as blogging on my phone through the WordPress app drains battery life. So on the 2nd day of class, I brought a notebook and pen. Then I thought it was repetitive to write down the blog piece on my notebook then type on the computer when we get home. So I thought of doing something else…
On one of those casual visits to the mall, I went to this interesting shop – MINISO. I was glad that I did. They have such a variety of items, which are both affordable and of good quality. I’m in love with their kitchen and dining items, but didn’t purchase for the sole reason that I didn’t need to get new plates and utensils, hehehe. One item I bought there was this colouring book…
Well, this simply caught my eye and thought that it was neat, and why not try coloring on this colouring book while I wait during my son’s swimming class? Unlike other colouring books for grown ups in other bookstores out there, this one has simpler images 🙂 I didn’t want to get overwhelmed with so much graphics and illustrations that I’m afraid I would just end up not finishing any illustrations or image at all.
So this coloring book has 50 pages inside — 32 pages with illustrations and 18 blank pages. Isn’t that nice? Some blank pages for when you wanna draw and have your own illustrations or drawings! The coloring book also comes in different cover designs and a paper wrap, which shows you a glimpse of the illustrations you will see inside each book (sorry I threw away my book’s wrapping already as of this writing).
On one of the blank pages I swatched the colors of the different color pencils that we have at home. Of course I borrowed from my kids 🙂 Got a couple from Colleen, Faber-Castell, Maped and Sterling. I don’t have the complete set of Maped and Sterling anymore because my kids have already misplaced them, hehehe. I love the shade and quality of Colleen. I’d probably get their color pencil set in 32 or more pencils. They even have neon colors.
Here are what I have done so far…
Thanks for reading!
