My life is a constant go go GO! It seems like I can never have a minute to myself. With 3 children living at home and one away at college, it can get super busy in my household. I have the high schooler Mr. Know-It-All, the junior high schooler Mr. I-Don’t-Care, and the pre-schooler Ms. I-Can-Do-It-Myself. What that usually amounts to is mayhem. Mr. Know-It-All eventually comes to realize that he doesn’t really know it all, Mr. I-Don’t-Care when everything is taken away because he didn’t listen, now also realizes that he does care. Ms. I-Can-Do-It-Myself will never admit that she really can’t do it all herself, even when asking for help.
Between the kids, housework, this blog, and everyday life, it seems like I never have enough hours in the day to just do it all. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family, and I would do anything for them, but there are days when I feel like just taking off and leaving it all behind, even for a few hours. If you’re a parent, you may be able to relate to my dilemma. However, it isn’t possible, but I have something that is just so therapeutic, it feels as though you’ve taken some time off. Introducing Colorwear, a new product line released by The Mountain® that aims to create wearable art through completely personalized and colorable t-shirts.
We all know that adult coloring books have been the rage this past year, and I even have a couple that I’ve used to release stress. I was told by my therapist that doing things with your hands actually helps with depression, so I picked up a couple of them. However, at the end of the day, unless I frame my photo, it’s just on paper, and that means that my pre-schooler can destroy it. What I love about Colorwear is that I now have something that I can color and wear, and that is truly unique since no two will ever be the same. I’m also able to let my creative juices flow and just stay engrossed in what I’m doing, trying to pick the perfect color, etc., that by the time you’re done, you’re amazed!
I recently invited a few of my friends over to a Colorwear party and what a blast we had (faces not shown to protect identity). We had so much fun that we almost forgot that I needed to take photos. One friend, in particular, actually finished her design because she was so caught up in her coloring and claimed how “therapeutic” it really was. There is nothing quite like having a few friends over and sharing how your week went, talk about the kids, and even enjoying time together. Friendship means a LOT to me, and I have a few friends who not only take the time to be there for me, but they also make my life complete. What would you do without your friends? The t-shirts were all well made, and at first, we were worried that the markers wouldn’t have done an excellent job, but oh, were we surprised, they did amazing! You definitely won’t be disappointed with a Colorwear purchase, I assure you!
Now Colorwear features 175 captivating designs by popular adult coloring book artists such as Valentina Harper and Angelea Van Dam, and you may even recognize a few of them if you’re into the adult coloring book trend. These designs are made to inspire you and give you a therapeutic escape from the stresses of your life. Think about all the housework you have to do!
The designs include Mandalas – recognized as sacred symbols around the world, animals and pets, aquatic scenes, gardens, holiday themes, inspirational quotes, and fantasy scenes to let your imagination and creativity run wild. The first photo that you saw of those seahorses is mine, and I can’t wait to finish it and show it off. Here’s something to also note about Colorwear. Their products are environmentally friendly, so you can feel comfortable in the knowledge knowing that you’re not harming the world while enjoying yourself.
