Cat Coloring Book Give-Away!!! "Curious Cats" by Susan T. Hall

In honor of National Coloring Book Day (which happens to be TODAY) I am pleased to present one of the most darling coloring books I have ever seen!


The cover is beyond adorable and is certain to make you want to POUNCE INSIDE!!!

"Explore Space, the Sea & More
with these Far-Out Felines"


The darling kitties in this book are "out of this world!!" There are "THIRTY imaginative illustrations that feature cats napping on Neptune, singing songs   atop Saturn, hanging around a crescent moon, and frolicking among backdrops bursting with stars flowers, fish, and other fun-to-color images."

Here is the page that I colored:

I am beyond upset that the past few months have been BEYOND INSANE (part of the insanity is we are waiting for our first grandchild to be born any day now!), and I haven't been able to find the time to color that I would have liked to have had. 

The creator of this precious book, Susan T. Hall, seriously has to be one of the NICEST people I have met. There were a number of times I was going to blog about this fabulous book, but I postponed because I wanted to have time to color, and Susan graciously kept telling me to "take my time!!" Because things are about to become crazier, I did NOT want her to have to wait any longer.  Fall is approaching and there will be MANY rainy/cold days that I will want to color, stay tuned because as I complete more pages I will feature them. Here are a couple that I am excited to begin coloring!


FROM SUSAN T. HALL:"I had such a good time drawing these, coming up with visual puns, researching cosmic bodies, adding nonsense and sprinkling a touch of anything else that I love into these illustrations. The ideas flowed easily and it felt like they drew themselves!"




Coloring books were a staple in my home when I was a little girl, and when I have the time, I love how when I open a coloring book, it takes me back to the days when my only worry was what color crayon to choose next! Even Susan's cats know that coloring is relaxing and soothing and that it is a hobby we all should do more of!

Meet Susan's kitties, Sundance and Cocoa. They are not only excellent models but they are PURRFECT artist assistants too!

Coco has to make sure that everything is PAWFECT!

  21. I bought a HUGE pack of crayons and I've never used them! I don't have the patience to color anymore ... disappointing because I used to enjoy it. Maybe cats will be the exception.

  22. Don't feel bad! I am quite similar! I bought crayons, pens, colored pencils, I have a backpack full of coloring books.......it is often that I don't have the time to color and like you, some days I just don't have the patience!
