    Wacky Idea

    (going to start a conversation around here if it kills me!)

    I've been looking for artistic projects to do that fill some kind of gap or need that people have, and someone gave me the wonderful suggestion to make adult coloring books. I can definitely do that and have it all planned out. But I had a sub-idea, and that was a weight loss coloring book.

    It would be called something like "color your way toward health," "the colors of health," "color away the calories," or something like that - I'm still looking for a good title. But it would be a book of cheerful, detailed pictures, each with an uplifting or motivating quote, that people could color instead of giving in to the nibbles. Many times we do better if we have something to do rather than mindless eating, right?

    So why not pair that with a dash of positivity and some pretty, colorful images?

    Does anyone have thoughts on this? If you like to color, would you use something like this? I think this could possibly fill a need and help some people.
