    I almost hate to admit it, but I am addicted to the adult coloring books. My youngest daughter got me one for Christmas last year. I set it aside thinking that I would never enjoy doing that. But one dreary, rainy, cold day I picked it up. It was love at first dash of color. Now I have coloring books of all kinds. Does anyone else share my addiction.?

    I think if someone would have gifted me with one of those adult coloring books and colors I would enjoy coloring in them too Joyce. :)

    When I first starting seeing these on TV commercials I thought about how much I used to like to color when I was young and how I still enjoy coloring with my grandchildren in their coloring books. Although I won't go out and spend the money on this...I definitely would color in them if I received this as a gift. And if this has become a hobby for you that you really enjoy then how wonderful for you! :)

    Do you enjoy coloring all kinds of pictures or just like scenery, etc?

    I have been given a couple of adult colouring books with colouring pens and pencils as a gift. I've put them aside for when I retire and have more time and patience on my hands... It's not something I could find myself being addicted too..but it's lovely to find a hobby you enjoy @Joyce Mcgregor ..may you continue to enjoy it :)

    I particularly like the geometric shapes. Flowers, butterflies, ect are high on my list but I will color almost anything.

    You just might be surprised! I did not think it was something I would enjoy at all.

    Mine are into Paw Patrol, Doc McStuffin's, Mickey Mouse and Minnie, and Team Umizoomi. :) And I have had fun coloring these pages with them too. :)

    I know someone that does the smaller ones and then uses them along with construction paper for a hand made greeting card. Nice idea.

    I have wondered what I would do with all those pages I would have colored. Turning the smaller ones into cards would be a great idea. :)

    Ha ha...a couple years ago it was Paw Patrol for Liam...by the time I left their house I knew the name of all the dogs and the boy.

    They were just rolling out a new pup when I left, it was a girl is all I remember. :)

    He also liked Doc McStuffins and The Bubble Guppies.

    To get this post back on track (my fault as usual) I only color when I'm at my son's house and only because I love my grandsons...coloring...not so much. :)

    I could never stay inside the lines as a kid, and I'm sure I haven't gotten any better with age. So, no thank you.
