I know what you’re thinking: “Creative Cause is going to share tips on how we can incorporate this year’s hottest read, 50 Shades of Grey, into our everyday lives.” Not exactly, but while we are at it, feel free to message me thoughts on this and maybe it will make a future Creative Cause blog!
While I’m sure 50 Shades of Grey is titillating, sometimes we need something to calm us. One of the most creative items I’ve come across this summer is Color Your Way to Calm, a coloring book for grownups for finding peace in the middle of their present. Let’s face it…we all can use a little more calm in our lives. A “colorcation” – coloring vacation – is a simple, soothing and inexpensive escape.
Tami Newcomb – an OC resident – is the creator of Color Your Way to Calm. She’s hoping to bring about a coloring renaissance to help quiet the craziness and offer a respite from this over-buzzed-booked-and-burdened world. “It’s a self expressive art experience without the pressure of having to create,” said Tami. “I created Color Your Way books in order to bring coloring for grownups out of the closet and into the cool, mainstream waters.”
Now go color…you know you want to!
