Color Me Stress-Free Coloring Book - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Calendars.com.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
Founded in 1999, Calendars.com brings together the latest Internet technology with the world's largest calendar inventory to create the Web's biggest and best calendar store. With Mother's Day coming up in the beginning of May, Calendars.com has a nice selection of calendars, games, puzzles, and gifts.
 
Last October I was introduced to the adult coloring book hobby.  I've been hooked since.  Coloring relaxes me and helps me focus.  My mother, up until she passed away, also found coloring to be therapeutic.

I was able to review the Color Me Stress-Free Coloring Book, available at Calendars.com.  It's different than a lot of other adult coloring books I've come across.  Rather than just be a book with pages to color, it divides those pages into themes with seven color coded sections.  The seven sections are Disorganization, Relationships, Finances, Work, Health, Time, and Travel and Commuting.  The images in the book are meant to serve as positive counters to those stressors.  There is a blank panel at the end of each chapter for you to draw and color your own image that is stress-relieving to you. 
 
I appreciate how there are separate categories for the book, but it doesn't affect me one way or another with which page I color.  There are a variety of images for a person to color, ranging from mandalas and geometrics to spirals and abstract art. 
 
There are some pages that have already been started with coloring.  I prefer the pages that have no color and only design.  That way I can use the colors that I want for the entire image.
 
I'd prefer if the pages were perforated but there's still enough leeway on each one to carefully cut or tear them out without cutting into the design.  The paper quality the book is favorable for coloring pencils, pens, markers, and other utensils.
 
I have gotten much enjoyment out of coloring in this book.  Some designs are more intricate than others, but they're all skillfully arranged.  This coloring book would make a great gift for Mother's Day, or for yourself, as a source of relaxation.

Oddly enough, my favorite color changes. A few months ago, I was in love with the color green. Before that, my favorite color was yellow. Right now, I am loving red.
