Coloring Book: Color Your Happy Home Part 3

I completed a couple more pages in the adult coloring book that I bought in the fall of 2017, called "Color Your Happy Home." The bucket style lists on each pages are fun to read and color. I've been coloring them according to the months that I'm doing them so roughly based on the current season. This month I decide to chose to color: "Baking", "Guests", and "Winter". I marked each page at the beginning of this month that I wanted to do with a paper clip. I'm going to attempt to complete this coloring book by the end of 2019. It will be a fun challenge to do. I think choosing a few a month to do will help me to get the book done.















The other pages that I've completed from this book:

December 2018 Reading List

It's been a slow reading year for me. I haven't really read anything since June other than magazines. I must have needed a reading break and didn't realize it. I hope to get back to it in the New Year. I decided to read this Christmas book of 42 short stories this month cause it seems doable to read a few a day.

Coloring Cards: Creative Expressions Part 3

The coloring card box that I'm working on is called, Creative Expressions, with 44 cards per box. I'm showing the 14 cards that I colored most recently. I had previously shared 15 cards on my last post, Coloring Cards: Creative Expressions from this box. That makes 15 cards to go.

I'm going to spend some time finding places to leave the cards from my first box that I completed Colorful Blessings for others to find over the next couple weeks before the New Year. I'll let you know where I left them in my next post when I share the last 15 of my current box.
