Adult coloring. It’s a new craze, and I’m totally addicted. I bought my first coloring book (the first one in decades anyway) before we left on our missions trip last month. I knew I’d need something to help fill time with six full days in the van (three to our destination, three home). Out of many, many choices I picked a patriotic coloring book along with a new pack of colored pencils, never expecting to get hooked.
I colored several pages on our trip and have even colored a few since we got home. I enjoy doing it in the evenings while we relax and watch TV. It’s rare I need a break from evening reading–as that’s my ultimate addiction!–but occassionally I do and coloring has filled that void. It’s challenging, relaxing, and I’m still exercising my creative outlet.
What about you? What’s your creative addiction?
