Christmas Coloring Books that Are Purr-fect for the Howl-idays - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review from Fox Chapel Publishing.  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.

One of my favorite and most relaxing hobbies is adult coloring books.  When I color in a picture with markers, gel pens, or colored pencils I can zone out and just focus on the project I'm working on.  I wouldn't consider myself to be an elite, but I get satisfaction out of coloring in the pages.

With the holidays coming up, I'm elated that there's Christmas coloring books I can work on.  The winter months are when I'm most active with coloring, and the two new books from Fox Chapel Publishing are perfect for Christmas.

Cute Christmas Holiday Coloring Book by Jenny Newland and William Vanderdasson and Santa's Kitty Helpers Holiday Coloring Book by Kayomi Harai join Fox Chapel's imprint DesignOriginals to help ring in this holiday season!

In Cute Christmas, have yourself a furry little Christmas with this heartwarming coloring book featuring happy pets in festive settings. Feel the stress of the holidays vanish as you focus your your mind on the sweet expressions of these beloved creatures. With Santa's Kitty Helpers, colorists will be charmed by the expressive-eyed furry friends depicted in the artistry of acclaimed illustrator Kayomi Harai.

You can't get any cuter with the illustrations presented in each coloring book.  They're whimsical, adorable, and festive.  The pages are perforated so you can tear them out.  I've found that markers can bleed through so you may want to tear a page out of a book before coloring in it to prevent bleed-through.  I've been using colored pencils and gel pens.  The paper the pictures are printed on is of good quality and there's a quote on the backside of each page.  Some of the images are printed in landscape form, while others are presented in portrait form.  These two coloring books will get you in the holiday spirit!


Win It!

One person will win a Cute Christmas Holiday Coloring Book and Santa's Kitty Helpers Holiday Coloring Book.
