As a child, one of the things I enjoyed doing, especially on rainy days, was coloring. I remember my mom having this really cool table in our basement that had a bunch of different matchbook covers on it with a clear coating over top of it and that was our table to color at, play with Play-Doh, etc. We also had a huge shoe box filled with crayons. Ironically enough, my mom still has that shoe box of crayons and my kids now color with them! Being a child always on the go and wanting to play outside with friends, coloring on those rainy days was the next best thing. Now, as an adult, I’d give anything to get back to those rainy days of relaxation with a little art therapy!!
*I received the following for the purpose of my 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. All opinions and stories are 100% my own*
I just recently learned about Art Therapy Collection. This subscription based company brings coloring back to adults! It forces us to take time out of our days to relax and do something that brings us back to our childhood…color!

I am very excited about the new toy, Malia's Beach House by Build & Imagine! My daughter is very into science and technology. She even likes math. I love it! When I was her age, I felt like girls had to like reading and writing, which I did, and boys were the ones that liked science and math. Consequently, that often translated into the thought … [Read More...]

They leave for school with winter coats because it's about 34 degrees and … [Read More...]
