Today it will be all about Adult Coloring Books! Did you know that Michaels offers free classes in their stores? You can try out a new craft skill for just the cost of supplies.
- Michaels has everything you need to craft the perfect handmade gift that will make Mom’s day.
This month’s challenge was a little different from my past challenge’s! We were asked by Michaels to sign up for one of the classes that’s offered in the store! Did you even KNOW that they had classes offered in the store!!! It’s AMAZING! I wanted to do something a little different than what I normally do so I chose to go to the “Coloring Time” class. Now I know this isn’t the “typical” class where you create an amazing wreath however I never got into this whole adult coloring book fad and I wanted to try it out and get some feed back from other’s on why they enjoy it and how it benefits their lives!
These classes are great because if can force a person to learn a new craft, hobby or technique that they otherwise might be hesitant to take up. When I got to my Michaels store the instructor did suggest that if we wanted to purchase our own coloring book we could so and as soon as I saw this Chalkboard coloring book I knew it was meant for me!
Once we got in the class they gave us sheets that we could use if you didn’t want to purchase a personal coloring book. I kept them just to show you.
These were the instructions that were given to us when we got to the class. I also kept this as well. I thought it was very helpful. If you do any of the classes offered at Michaels they give you a detailed sheet like this telling you what you need to purchase before the class. You can also sign up online!
Materials needed for this product were:
*Chalkboard Coloring Book
*Pencil Sharpener I just love how vibrant all of these colors are. I am usually not a fan of colored pencils but these really worked nice while coloring in the small details. Not to mention the pencil sharpener helps!
Another great way to explore your creativity is by trying out a craft kit. Michaels has everything from sewing kits to art kits and everything in between.
I am so happy with the way these turned out. What I love the most is you can literally take it right out of the book and just frame it for your house. You can give it as a gift framed up as well!!!
Look how beautiful it looks once you start coloring the white spaces. A lot of the ladies in the class said to me that they enjoy getting out of the house and coming to Michaels for these coloring classes because it’s a good way for them to meet people and it actually settles their minds. It takes them into another land that is relaxing to them. I thought that was neat since I usually do something really crazy like move everything in my house around to relax me. I know, fist bump… I’m a soldier. It was nice to see how easily the colored pencils blended with the other colors. It’s very hard to tell how great the colors look in this picture but just TRUST me they look better in person!
I hope you enjoyed this adventure of mine and please don’t forget to sign up you and your kids for in-store classes at Michaels!!!!
See you in the next post, xoxo Jade
