Personalized Coloring Book for Grown-Ups - Review

I received product for review.  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.

I've recently taken up the hobby of adult coloring books.  I've spent quite the time zoning out and just filling in patterned pages with gel pens and markers.  It's relaxing and makes me feel I have a somewhat creative side.  Once my older kids realized I wasn't completely nuts (or am I?!) they got in on the hobby too.
A company known for their personalized storybooks, Put Me In The Story recently introduced two personalized coloring books to their line.  I have a nice selection of adult coloring books, but none with personalization.  This company went beyond the general realm by offering that option with their coloring books.
Because Juliann, the 15 year-old, has been enjoying coloring as much as I do, I created a personalized coloring book for her.
The personalization process itself was quite easy.  I just needed to go through the steps for which name I wanted in the book and a dedication message.  Easy peasy! 
The Keep Calm and Color on books are available in two versions, one for inner creative and one for stress relief.  I went with the first one with the pink cover.
The book arrived within two weeks.  Both Juliann and I were impressed.  There are several pages of patterns and images to color.  Some of the pages have Juliann's name on, while some don't.  Most have famous quotes included.  The front cover even has Juliann's name right up top.  It's a nice coloring book in and of itself, but the personalization makes it extra special.
Now through December 13th (My birthday. Hint, hint!), you can purchase the books individually for $19.99 each or 2 for $30 when you use the code RELAX at checkout.

These adult coloring books are really catching on! I bought both of my girls some from Michael's just last week. They won't get them until Christmas though.
