Playful Designs Blog Tour and Giveaway

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

As soon as I held Patty Young's new coloring book, Playful Designs, in my hands, I was instantly transported to my childhood. My absolute favorite activity when I would have babysitters was to pull out a design book and color. Not your average coloring books mind you, but single sided, bright white sturdy paper with prints and patterns. I loved coloring in them as much as I loved watching an older kid and discovering their style. The first time someone showed me outlining a space with marker and filling in with crayon, mind blown I tell you!! 


Playful Designs is just such a book! Single sided, white cardstock sheets fit for framing if need be. It even gives you a color education in the back of the book. It was hard, but the book was intended for my girl, so I reluctantly gave it to her. Well, she was pretty crazy about it too! The hardest part was selecting what page to color first. As you can probably tell by the various outfits, we've had several days of fun with this coloring book.


I love this look of concentration!


Who wouldn't be happy with some colorful play time!?! 


So, I literally begged and pleaded for a chance to color just one page. After some delay, Avery gave in and tore out the building print as a nod to my former structural engineering career. Word of caution, grab the book before your child tears or your pretty picture may have a slightly ugly tear in it! In the end, Avery was so thrilled to color together, that she sharped all of my old watercolor pencils from high school!


Who knew a coloring book could revive old memories and create new ones at the same time!! Thank you Patty for the adventure!!
