Since I started colouring my tastes have changed as I got a little better at it and saw what an amazing assortment of books are out there by some very talented artists. As a result I have probably 6-8 books or more that I know I will never open or that just has one page coloured.
The 6 above are my current favourites, a couple are still on their way and I cant wait for them to get to me. Anyway what should I do with the books im not going to use?
I have had an awesome idea (in my head its awesome anyway lol). My idea stems from the fact that colouring has really helped my mental health, colouring makes me happy and thinking about colouring and buying new supplies excites me. Anyway you get the point, colouring is amazing for mental health. So lets get back to the point in hand, my cunning plan ……
Next time I see my psychologist in a couple of weeks i will take my surplus books so that she can ask her other patients if they would like to try colouring. They can have a browse and take a book home to keep. These people may never have given colouring a thought and they should totally give it a go as it does help with wellbeing. I dont see a negative in this plan, but I will certainly check if its ok with her, I won’t just dump a bag of books on her desk! Also if nobody wants them I will take them back, she won’t be left with a stack of books.
I might also buy half a dozen packs of cheapo gel pens so that the people who want to give it a go will have a starter set to get them going.
What do you guys think? Win or Fail?
