I could just color myself happy!

I've been enjoying coloring books from the Inkspirations line for awhile now. I love that they have so many different themed books that I can go between. And I never get bored because I have so many to choose from! I like to color at home and on the go, but have always hated dragging a big ole coloring book around with me. I've been looking for something smaller that would fit in my purse that I could just take out and enjoy a little while waiting in a doctors office or other appointment. And guess what? I found one! It's actually quite compact and I can even stow it and a set of colored pencils right in the glove-box of my car. Then when I want to use it I can just pull it out and toss it in my purse. Now I can color myself happy anywhere!

Together, AARP and Florida-based HCI Books have released a pocket-size adult coloring book called Inkspirations Create While You Wait. The new series of adult coloring books from AARP and HCI offer an easy and inexpensive way to de-stress and bring about mindfulness. AARP is embracing the benefits of the coloring book craze with its first internationally distributed series of coloring books.
