Take a Break

My goodness, this week has been busy for me. As you can tell, I missed my Wednesday post. Sorry about that! Next week doesn’t seem to be any less hectic, but I’m filling my weekend and non-work hours with the best of things: birthdays, anniversaries, visitors, and lots of baking in preparation to all of those things…so I have no complaints.

It actually works out well that my evenings have been so stressful, because what I wanted to share today is exactly what I like to do when I get overwhelmed and busy…coloring! I love to color or draw whenever I’m stressed out or watching tv or listening to an audiobook or just because. I’m not an artist and don’t do anything super fancy, but it’s so much fun! Below is my ‘entry’* to a contest that author Heather Dixon is having. The page is based on her book that just came out, Entwined.

I haven’t yet read Entwined, but it’s a retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses, a story I adore. And I know I’ll read it soon; a book club that I just joined (mostly because they were discussing this book) has selected Entwined for May. I’ll let you know how it is! And in the meantime, check out Heather’s contest (you can enter for another week) and happy coloring!

* I’m not actually entering the contest; it doesn’t seem fair when Heather Dixon is a Harper author and I have relatively easy access to Harper books. But I just couldn’t resist coloring a fake entry anyways.


  1. I am SO glad that someone got that! Inspired, of course, by Roger and Hammerstein's Cinderella staring Lesley Ann Warren.
