So, I bought a colouring book of mandalas, in a bid to do something relaxing and try to quiet the noise in my head. It's a pretty lovely book, and I'm enjoying picking colours and making patterns in how I'm using the colours.

But I'm gonna guess that the whole "adults colouring is a good idea for relaxing and meditation" thing did not mean for me to be doing it while watching The Walking Dead.

On the plus side, it is pretty relaxing, and I'm finally able to tell Cameron that I watched Season One, which he bought me years ago and that I've never watched until now.

Onward to Season Two, I guess!

I now have three coloring books for adults, but every time I feel the urge to color, I pull out the 4x5 inch Hello Kitty pages instead. Whatever works, I suppose.

Sounds like fun! I'm an art supply nerd, so I'll ask- are you using crayons or markers or colored pencils or paint or something else?

I'm using colored pencils right now, since that's what I currently have. I am thinking of looking for some nice markers that won't bleed through the paper. As an art supply nerd, do you have any suggestions of good markers?

Good question! I like these brush markers, because of the giant felt tip: http://www.uchida.com/p-5-brush-marker.aspx
yet they'd probably bleed like crazy. I have a scrapbooking friend who swears by coptic markers, though I've never tried them. They might be good!
