Whimsy, coming soon

I'm sure you've noticed the coloring-books-for-adults trend. But it isn't new! Carl Jung, psychiatrist, psychotherapist, and founder of analytical psychology, suggested his patients color in mandalas to calm and center their minds. It makes sense. Most of us have slipped away into our imaginations while doodling---and waiting for our call to be connected. Sometimes we even lose track of what we're waiting for! (With the length of time we spend on hold nowadays, there's a good chance you could you could create your own coloring book. Save those doodles. You never know.)

However, if you haven't collected enough doodles for a coloring book, never fear. I've been hard at work creating a coloring-book-plus-journal, which I've titled Whimsy. The line drawings of fairies, angels, elves, flowers and funny faces have been so much fun to create! In March, I will release electronic versions of both the full Whimsy-cal journal and a series of short sample Whimsy pamphlets. With the Whimsy pamphlets, you can discover the joy of coloring, journaling and doodling without committing yourself to an entire adult coloring book. 

You'll be able to download the pdf files and print the images, which are ready for coloring, journaling, scribbling and doodling. Now, not only can you color outside the lines, you can doodle and draw, scribble and write, or color and not write, or write and not color . . . it's all up to you. Below are some images from the upcoming book. Print them out and give it a shot.

Here's a sampling of the illustrations from Whimsy. Print a page and see what you think.
If you're  not able to print from this page, copy and paste the images to a word document or save it to your computer.
