Hello you beautiful soul!
I’m so excited you found my little corner of the Internet!
My name is Andrea, Dea in short, and I have the pleasure of being the one in charge of the Mindfulness Adult Coloring Book Shop.
I started doodling and coloring shortly after I was diagnosed with depression a few years ago. At first I simply used free printables that I colored in. But at some point I knew, I needed more!
The first proper adult coloring book I bought was The Mindfulness Colouring Book: Anti-stress art therapy for busy people by the magnificent Emma Farrarons.
I still have the book and there might even be one or two pages I haven’t colored in yet. (It’s just SO pretty!)
What I found looking for a second coloring book was not what I had expected.
Confronted with the mass of gorgeous and not so great coloring books, it became very hard to tell the good ones from the bad. I ended up not buying anything.
(A lovely friend saved me by gifting me with the best Harry Potter Colouring Book in the universe!)
That was when I was offered to take over this little “Shop around the Corner”. And I decided to create what I had sorely missed looking to introduce a new adult coloring book into my life!
I’d like to add only great and high quality books and pens, and, also a variety of amazing free printables for you to use for stress relief, as a creative outlet or simply to busy yourself while your on the phone. (If you haven’t tried this, do it! It keeps you relaxed even through the phone calls with THAT customer, you know the one I’m talking about!)
If you have any suggestions which books NEED to be in the shop, find one you weren’t impressed with or have a great free printable you’d like to have added to my link list, please leave me a comment below!
Think of this as Meg Ryan’s book shop in You got mail. Come in, make yourself at home, grab a cuppa and browse the shelfs.
Who knows, you might find true (coloring) love when you least expect it!
Lots of love and light,
