Lazy-Ass Cats Coloring Book Blog Tour

A couple weeks ago I went through a period of about 5 days where I didn't feel like doing a darn thing. I enjoy my job but during that time it was a struggle to get through the day. Even this blog, my passion, didn't motivate me, and I only did what absolutely had to get done.

It wasn't that I was didn't feel well, I just felt blah. I needed something new and different to spark my creative juices that didn't require too much brain power, and that's when I remembered my new coloring book that had recently arrived in the mail: the Lazy-Ass Cats coloring book. Better still, these cats were looking adorable being lazy slugs just like me!

When I was a little girl I was obsessed with coloring. Any visitor to my house, friend or family member, had to color with me. It was a rule. Now that coloring is back and cooler than ever with adults, it's so exciting to see it finally being acknowledged as the therapeutic activity I've always known it to be.

While flipping through the pages of the Lazy-Ass Cats coloring books, it's impossible not to end up with a big smile on your face. Each picture depicts house cats engaging in a mixture of human-like behavior such as enjoying ice cream cones, chilling in front of "Catflix", playing video games and having a pizza party, as well as kitty activities such as playing in laundry baskets, hanging with their human and napping anywhere and everywhere. Many of the drawings are accompanied by popular cat quotes from Charles Dickens, Ernest Hemingway and Garfield creator Jim Davis.

What I love is that each page can be colored in a single setting. It takes longer than a picture out of a child's coloring book, but it's not so intricate that it will take you hours upon hours to complete. Some books on the shelves today are so overwhelmingly detailed and elaborate that just looking at it stresses me out! I'm into instant gratification...give me a page that will guarantee a finished product in a decent amount of time. Maybe that's just more of my laziness, but I'm choosing to embrace it!

Now this is my kind of coloring book! I know exactly what you mean about looking at those coloring books with terribly intricate designs. I don't think I could ever complete one of those, as just looking at them stresses me out, too. But this one here, it looks downright purrfect!

Ha-ha! This looks like fun, and the perfect thing to help get your spark back. I like the intricate coloring books, but it's hard to start on them, knowing that it will take hours to finish a picture. Will definitely be checking this out!

Wow, I didn't know you were an artist! Cute kitties in the pages of your book! Mom likes your approach in that it has pages that one is more likely to finish coloring! Great idea! Mew Mew! -Valentine

Some coloring books accompany composed directions, and different recreations, for example, a dab to spot, or a labyrinth. coloring pages
