Books Spotlight - The new coloring book fad! It's actually a lot of fun!


Just take a look around any craft store or book store and you are sure to find a huge display of coloring books for adults.  It's been discovered that coloring actually helps adults deal with anxiety and stress.  I can attest to the truth in this - plus it's a lot of fun!

Here are three books that I have just adored.  They would make great Christmas gifts for those artsy (or stressed-out) folks in your life, or just for yourself!  Grab a box of crayons or colored pencils and join in the fun!
