|Loving the unique patterns on this one of Eileen's|
Granted it wasn't all colouring - pretty sure the drinks and snacks added to the fun, and who doesn't like to choose a fistful of colour?
|Gay, Lisa, Sue & Shelly peruse the choices|
|Sue, Shelly, John and Joe, with Bart waaaaay in the back.|
|Joe and Shelly colouring up a storm while Maureen and Jasmine choose their weapons.|
|Eileen, Laura, John and Lisa tear into it.|
|Sue, Jasmine, Lori and Gay are hard at it right from the start|
|Alison stopped in for a bit of a visit.|
|Working with oil pastels.|
|You could feel and see the love in the air|
|TJ's colour choices are in total harmony with what she's wearing.|
|Maureen adds a pop of red - on the page and off it.|
The evening reminded me of wonderful parties from the past, where friends would gather on a cold winter weekend to soak in a hot tub alternating with a mad frenzy of colouring in the warm and cozy house. By the end of a weekend, our walls would be covered top to bottom with mandalas in every shade of the rainbow; the energy was palpable.
Why not hold your own colouring party? There are a ton of colouring books for adults on the market (although I confess to a bit of bias towards the one at the top right of this blog - they're available at Puffin too). And if you want to get in on the next one at Puffin, email me with your preference of daytime or evening slot, and I'll let you know the details when available.
