Color Crazy

Years ago, I got into coloring books. And back in those days, there weren’t any “adult coloring book”. All there was were Disney-themed or cartoon-inspired coloring books. And I had to make do. I always found coloring, therapeutic and calming.

Fast forward today, there are a number of adult coloring books in the market! I can’t believe it! And you can even download from different websites.

And then, I’ve been hearing great feedback on Johanna Basford’s coloring books since last year. But there was none here in Vietnam. So I was trying to coordinate with friends back in Manila and Basford’s books were always sold out. But wouldn’t you know it? My good friend, Grace Maling (Hi Grace!), told me that PNC and Fahasa now have her books and more!

They’re in Vietnamese though. But that doesn’t really matter when you do coloring.

I’m in the look out for the Lost Ocean for a friend.

So if you’re looking for some great way to unwind and bond with your kids, why not grab those colored pencils, and color away? 🙂
