Featuring the amazing natural patterns of delicate wings resting among beautiful flowers and plants, each stress-reducing page invites you artists to express yourself using your own unique palette to decorate the designs. Soon, you'll find yourself clearing all worries from your mind as you concentrate on coloring in these gorgeous patterns.

As you can see from the closeups, there is SO much detail, that you can almost get lost in many of the drawings! And they are SO gorgeous, you'll want to frame many of them!

Miss Grace and I had lots of fun coloring this page with the great PrismaColors pencils and pens, and you can see how much detail are in the prints!

And now for a book that relaxes and inspires:

animal wonders cover

Delicately detailed and absorbingly inspiring, this creative coloring book is packed with wonders to reveal on every page. Find hidden animals and tiny insects in a huge variety of habitats, and learn all about the amazing animal kingdom along the way.

There are pages that are animal prints, leaves or feathers, that allow you to create your own crazy pattern, and then there are pages like the ones shown above. As you can see, each page has a short inspirational phrase, like "Jump for Joy", "Be Yourself", or "Never Change Your Colors". 

The book is perfect for pre-teens and teens, who need reminders that they are special, unique and one-of-a kind! The pictures are detailed enough to not be 'childish', yet simple enough that they can be completed in a short sitting. It's the perfect book to give with a set of pencils and pens for a Summer birthday present, as a 'welcome to Junior High/High School" gift, or to help kids with other transitions. Miss Grace gives it a huge thumbs up!

Whether you're new to art relaxation home therapy, or have been coloring for years, these books will help you find your inner calm and creativity--one page at a time! 

And now for something to help you de-stress on the go- which you KNOW is going to happen a lot with Back to School upon us!


If you’re looking for a way to unwind on the go, while waiting for the kids at practice/lessons, or in the dreaded car line (I know you can scream now, I'm with you!), or simply want to explore your artistic side anywhere you are, this little coloring book provides the perfect opportunity to unleash your creativity. 


With over 50 unique designs in a compact 4.5" x 6.5" inch book is small enough to carry around in your purse, with a small pack of pens or pencils, to pull out whenever you have time, or need to relax!


 The illustrations range from simple to very detailed, and and you may just find yourself smiling a whole lot, as you color and relax, instead of being on your cell phone, while waiting. You amy find your whole body relaxing too! 

This little book is perfect for fitting into a coed's dorm bag, as a surprise gift too! It would also be a fun gift for your bestie or sister too!
