Another New Hobby?

The colouring fun is continuing in my house at the moment. I have added more to my picture, and my daughter has done the same. My picture gets a lot of my thoughts right now.

I am always thinking of when I will get some time to fit in a decent bit of colouring. I’m starting to obsess about it.

Yesterday, we spent the day at a huge shopping mall. We decided to go there for a change and to see all the different stores it had compared to our town. We had a lovely day looking around at different things. This included a handbag shop (my obsession with these could fill another blog post) and a stationery store that had a huge collection of adult colouring books, pencils and pens.

I managed to stop myself from buying another book. However, I could not resist buying some more pencils and fineliner pens. The selection of colours in these packs is better than those that I’ve been using so far. I’ll be able to add a lot more shading and colour variation to my pictures.

I took another step to turn this into yet another hobby today when we went to the library. The colouring is lots of fun, but I would also like to be able to draw at least half as well as the people who make these pictures. I found myself looking at art books and I got one out that shows basic drawing tips. Also, I got one out that shows you how to draw cartoon monsters. It’s good to have a bit of variation, right?

So, it seems I have found something else to fill up those minutes of the day that I do not have. Another hobby has taken its hold over me, and well, I love it. There are worse things than hobbies to become addicted to, but I can see some of these hobbies ending up as expensive as other addictions (add in dry laugh here).

I can see the speculation about this new hobby in my husband’s eyes, but I can also see that he is glad that I have found something that makes me happy.

Plus, this is something that I can do with my daughter. We can create our masterpieces together and share lots of precious time together too!

Take care everyone.
