Workman Publishing has released a wide line of products called Color Your Year. With the trend of coloring still strong in the adult community, it isn’t surprising that new products beside coloring books are release. This time you can get from the Color Your Year products a coloring book, a wall calendar, a notepad and calendar, an engagement calendar, and a page-a-day calendar.
For the purpose of this review, I will present you the page-a-day notepad and calendar as well as the engagement calendar.
There is nothing more relaxing I find than coloring away the stress of every day. This particular Color Your Year product will allow you to do just that and stay organized throughout the year. Each pages including in this notepad and calendar will combine a check-off to-do list, lined notepaper, a mousepad, and built-in coloring break. COLOR YOUR YEAR NOTEPAD + CALENDAR is the all-in-one desk accessory that works hard while refreshing the spirit through creativity. The hundreds of intricately drawn illustrations—designed to be colored in and brought vibrantly to life—cover a range of themes and are accompanied by smart and inspirational quotes. It’s a daily reminder to slow down, take stock, and make something beautiful.
This particular product is very interesting for anyone whether are work, school, home or on the go. You can easily write the things that needs to be done on the day/week-end in order to not to forget anything. A page could easily become your shopping list if you need to. But what it also amazing about this notepad is that you can have a little peach and quiet time in order to recharge your own batteries by coloring an image on the page. I find that doing the simply activity of take coloring pencils and adding color in an image helps to relive stress and tension in you. I know that I personally feel more relax and patient when I do bible art journaling – even if it is just sketching an image, inking it or coloring it. Coloring for adults can do wonders to anyone who takes the time to do so.
With the Color You Year engagement calendar you will be able to let your creativity shine—and keep track of important things during the year on a weekly basis. Combining the organizational powers of a planner with the addictive pleasure of coloring, COLOR YOUR YEAR ENGAGEMENT CALENDAR delivers an intricate, beautifully drawn illustration each week to color in and make your own. This particular engagement calendar offers seasonal themes like animals, botanical motifs, dazzling geometric patterns, and more. On the right-hand side of each spread is a roomy, write-in grid for keeping track of the week’s reminders and goings-on.
At times throughout the engagement calendar, you will obtain a two pages coloring image that is simply stunning. Not how I plan to use this specific engagement calendar next year is to do tiny scripture doodle in it. What are tiny scripture doodle you might ask? Well it looks a little bit like these which I have grabbed from instagram to show you.
Essentially, you take a specific scripture that has touched you in some way during the day and doodle it in a calendar that offer smaller space. The Color Your Year engagement calendar for 2017 will be perfect for this kind of project. Another useful way that this can be used would be to jolt down blessings you have received during the day or special prayer requests/answers for the year. Being uplifted when I do bible art journaling, I think being challenged in doing a doodle a day on a scripture will be fun to do next year.
As you can see both of these products can be really helpful for stay-at-home moms and homeschoolers. One will allow to keep track of the daily activities in a calendar way while the other will allow you to keep your to-do list very organized. Each of these product gives you the opportunity to download a free page-a-day digital calendar for you personal device. And since different people prefers different kind of calendars, you will find that offering a variety of products with the same theme can be very helpful – especially for those of you who will be looking at getting a special calendar to a love one for the new year.
