Color Me



Celtic Coloring Pages from The Celtic Touch


I spent several hours with my friend's kids yesterday, ages mature 11, precocious almost 4 and shy 1 1/2.  Sometimes I do long for nieces, nephews and (someday) grandkids.  We colored. Mostly Hello Kitty.

Weirdly, when I came home I was inspired to color by myself.  It's something I still find incredibly relaxing and meditative, especially when you color something really complex.  I have a Celtic Mandala coloring book, but you can go to the website above and print yourself some coloring pages that will work just as well.  Dover Books has some fantastic coloring books, some of them on "stained glass" paper.  Hang it on the refrigerator when you're done :)

Knotty But Nice Choker by Far Frum Plain Jane

If you like chokers, go visit this shop.  There's micro-macrame, beadwork, and a mix of both, and it seemed like I liked each thing I saw a little more than the last, but I could probably favorite almost everything!

I love coloring, too! Very meditative indeed.

One of my favorite things is to color with my nieces. We have created several masterpieces together. We have one book that we still go back and look at sometimes filled with wildly colored dinosaours.

I love to color when I'm under the weather, especially when you don't feel like moving and get bored with TV.

Yay, I love coloring! I think that's why my medium of choice for my art is colored pencils - makes me feel youthful.

Those Celtic designs are neat!

wow...thats a really intricate design.

One of my favorite things to do with my little girl is to sit and color. Its a great way her her to learn not only her colors but improve her hand eye cordination too.
