Are you wondering what my hobby that is now crossed into my addiction is? Around the time I bought my freedom. Leaving the domestic violence situation I had found myself in. You can read more of that tale here or here or even a bit here. My hobby became coloring.
It was easily a way to calm myself and cope with everything life was throwing my way. I could escape the stress and create some beautiful art! At first I was picking up a marker or two. A coloring book here or there. Excitedly I posted of my first marker tote and filled it with many types of markers.
It’s fun to get new markers. They are all so different in color, and in the way they color. Enjoying choosing all the different possiblities was thrilling for me. I would get lost in craft stores choosing markers.
I will say though I struggle to find as interesting coloring books in the stores. Even When I had my trip to Barnes and Noble ( the gigantic book store) the adult coloring book section was not as impressive as I had hoped. You can discover far better ones on Amazon. In my personal opinion.
My collection may have spilled into an addiction when I realized I had now had three totes to carry my markers in. Which I take back in forth with me to Marc’s each and every weekend. Getting lost in some fantastic artwork is priceless.
The girls share my love for coloring and have started their own little collection. They prefer gel pens where I am a fan of ultra fine line markers. The ones with the tiny tips that take longer to color but work perfectly in the finer detail spots. Nothing great happens quickly anyway right? What is your hobby? Has it crossed over into addiction status as mine?
