Oct 30, 2016 10:11 PM

Ooooooh, art supplies!!! Nothin' I love more, except maybe ☕️ and chocolate 🍫😁

Oct 30, 2016 10:25 PM

Wow you have a wonderful collection. We don't have a Michael's store over here but there are some good colouring books. Some are cheap, if you even use a gel pen it bleeds thro the page but there are the more expensive ones which hardly bleed thro unless you're heavy handed with a felt tip. I normally buy a book if one or two of the pictures take my fancy and I have the money for it. There have been books that I look at and none of the pictures take my eye so I don't get them, normally I see loads of books that I like when I'm a little short so I check my balance before I go out and if I don't have the money I don't look at any books...it's hard but I can't look otherwise I'll get disappointed if I like something but can't afford it!
I like using a wide range of colouring materials myself....gel pens as they come in a range of colours including glitter and metallic....colouring pencils from the bright crayola ones to the artsy shady ones....fine tip colouring pens.
I've not tried the sharpie pens, I've never really thought about them plus they are very expensive here and they never seem to be on offer like the other pens and pencils I get.

Oct 31, 2016 12:59 AM

I hope you don't mind me showing you some of my colouring?
This is what I'm colouring at the moment, I'm using glitter gel pens on this

Oct 31, 2016 1:01 AM

This is one I did a little while ago.... I used my crayola colouring pencils on this one

Oct 31, 2016 2:11 AM

Sezzy, they're brilliant!!! I have a few of those coloring books but sometimes I can't sit that long working on them with such tiny and intricate spots within the designs. I love them though!! I also like to draw. Keep em comin' 💕

Oct 31, 2016 6:48 AM

Oct 31, 2016 10:09 AM

Someone here had mentioned the app you can download online. I have found one that has a lot of Mandela pictures. And animals and flowers and... :) have been enjoying those on those nights I can't sleep.

Oct 31, 2016 10:53 AM

I started a new one at 4 this morning when I couldn't sleep.....I'm out at the moment first counselling for Jo then cbt counselling for me. We're on our home now (once I start the engine and drive off....no using the phone whilst driving except for Google maps directions) I'll post a pic as soon as I get a chance x

Oct 31, 2016 3:56 PM

This is the picture I started this morning. I'm feeling more than a little tired and exhausted but at my son's school waiting for him to return from Germany...staying in the car atm because there are a lot of other parents and I'm feeling more than a little anxious, been feeling anxious all day and cbt seems to of made it worse 😢

Oct 31, 2016 6:01 PM

Nov 01, 2016 6:16 AM

I started a halloweeny Kitty for me... Yesterday I was given a special calling... To write letters to some of my fellow people whom are in prison for really no good reason, so I'm write letters to remind them we are all still here behind them and send them pic I color with positive notes to them.... It's nice to have a purpose again being as I can't be on the front lines right now.... Any way woke early today 5:30 doc was suppose script me a sleeping led instead he just upped my kolonapin for bed time.... It sedated me but still didn't sleep sleep :/ .... Exhausted I check in later hugz

Nov 01, 2016 7:03 AM

Love the kitty, MizzMonroe!! It's awesome. Hope you have the opportunity to get some rest today. Sending gentle {{{Hugs}}}😊

Nov 01, 2016 8:26 AM

I'm exhausted honestly but I may take nap idk.. Any more I can't say any time is safe I may fall asleep any time any where lately if I been doing things it's like it tires my physically mentally everything I just pass out wake up like wtf happen... Fighting over myself ATM to either lay back down or get up make sudo coffee n have a muffin watch my lady love or two then move on to art n letters idk :/ I hate being this way either way I gotta start with FIBER drink blaaaaa... At least I found a, decent cover I put my fiber scoop in a orange powerade u can't really tell lol... I be around today here n there.. Hugz

Nov 01, 2016 11:46 AM

I hear you. Totally wiped out myself today. I've no energy and my mind is weary right now. Very ill this morning for some reason with my stomach hurting and heaving up. I just tip over wherever I'm at when I am no longer functional. (Can't control it either). Was chatting with my BFF, whom I love dearly and was totally unable to think or process anything and got off line and fell asleep for about an hour or so. I hope you find some balance in your day... hang in there, Hon, you got this!!😜🤗

Nov 01, 2016 2:01 PM

Oh dear no that doesn't sound Good at all take care u... Hugz

Nov 01, 2016 2:34 PM

I know how you feel. After my pain clinic app today I had to get a coffee...a medium hazelnut latte from Costa Coffee and a Danish pastry...because I didn't feel awake enough to drive home especially as the nurse said that if I cause an accident it could be a prisonable offence because I'd be classed as "under the influence" due to the meds I'm on.....mainly the morphine mixed with the other meds that make you drowsy.
(I think I got the coffee and pastry really because I haven't had them in a while and just really wanted them using that excuse!!!)
When I got home I sat down to write about my app but next thing I know my alarm is going off telling me it's time for the school run!!! I still had my glasses on and the phone in my hand but I'd pulled the throw over me and was laying across the sofa 😨😨😨

Nov 02, 2016 4:49 AM

Yup it's that easy... I never was able to nap now it's a toss 50 50 some days it's more a 80/10 chance lol... But when I'm suppose to be asleep FORGETBOUT IT!!! Hope u got some rest have good morning I gotta go get a shot n my hiney!! Lol idk what else I tried do art yesterday but failed, I have to push myself cuz I'm writing and doing pics for 6 guys of " ours" whom are locked away for being TRUTH SPEAKERS. So we r banding together to let them know we remember and won't fade into the system :/ so sad.. Any way I said I'd write letters to each and do pics for them like positive message pics... Since being sick been hard for me to be active with my people it's made me sad so at least now I have a purpose...

Nov 06, 2016 3:16 PM

I never used to be able to nap but now I have to be concious where I sit otherwise I'd be forever sleeping!!!
I finally finished my colouring in I'm not one for colouring in the background so I just leave it!!!

On another note young lady, I hope you've been to the doctor or A&E to get yourself looked at and medication to help you feel better?


Nov 06, 2016 4:39 PM

These are all beautiful ladies! I don't have the patience to sit so long, nor the hands and fingers for such tedious and intricate strokes on the designs. My CTs & OA ended many of my crafts years ago. But I'm glad you all have this! 🙂💕🙏🌸

Nov 06, 2016 5:56 PM

You must be psychic! It's comes out in the pictures you colour

Nov 16, 2016 9:04 AM

This is one of my latest colouring pictures to start.....I think I have 3 or 4 others started but this one wants me to finish it!!!

Nov 16, 2016 9:17 AM

I don't know why that's loaded blurry? The picture was clear when I took it

Nov 16, 2016 9:56 AM

I think the pictures get compressed so that they take up less space which kills the quality

Nov 16, 2016 10:19 AM

I love the kaleidoscopes designs! Beautiful ladies!

Nov 16, 2016 11:12 AM

Gorgeous work!!! I have those coloring books but after a while I get a wicked headache from looking at all the small spaces and my neck begins to ache as well. I do color and draw.. not that often though. I'm usually listening to music and singing.💕😊
