We all have those crazy busy days when we can’t think of working in one more task.  So, what do you do to unwind at the end of your day?  I encourage you to consider finding your inner artist and start picking up those colored pencils. I have and I must say I am really enjoying it.

These books and pencils are definitely topping my “nifty gifty” list soon to be an upcoming blog for Christmas.  If you want to get started before the stress of the holidays arrives, here are some of my favorite recommendations:
