Unlike other coloring books, these patterns are twisted and complex with just the right degree of difficulty to allow adults to fully engage and enjoy the therapeutic and calming effects of coloring.
Andrea has four books on Amazon. They are all a part of a way to connect and recharge yourself through coloring therapy.
It is very much a recharge that I often need.
I very much enjoyed this book.
I likely haven't colored in 20 years and found it soothing to just be focused on making designs that I was choosing the colors on.
Meditation isn't really my thing, but this was tremendously useful in finding a peaceful space in my head.
The concentration required seemed to do the job much better than sitting quietly does for me.
I'd highly recommend giving it a try.
Just wanted to say thanks to Andrea Wood Schmitz AND all artists who participated in the event.. I enjoyed finding artists that were new to me.
I'm coloring book artist Sue Chastain and I'm just learning my way in the world of marketing. I was thrilled to be invited to participate in Andrea Wood Schmitz' Facebook event, the Grown Up Coloring Book Easter Bonanza.
Participating in this event has totally energized me and given me so many ideas on how I might use Facebook events for other marketing efforts in the future.
I had three main goals for participating in the Bonanza: to gain exposure for my site, to grow my email list, and put some good karma vibes out into the world. I definitely accomplished all of my goals with record-breaking page views and sign-ups. I would certainly work with Andrea Wood Schmitz again.
Andrea Wood Schmitz put together a cohesive and extremely well attended Facebook event.
I was fortunate enough to be one of the participating artists. I regularly participate in book launch parties of a similar nature, and I believe this was the best attended event of this kind I have participated in to date.
All social media I was promoting saw a notable increase in followers, and my email subscription list doubled in size with in 48 hours following my hour as co-host.
I am thankful to Andrea for helping me publish my first book.
Her knowledge and experience were evident as she guided me through the process.
She was incredibly patient with my numerous questions and edits.
Andrea is awesome, really and I look forward to working together again soon!
This was exciting, first to meet new artists, second giveaway and learning new ideas.. Huge Thanks for all the time you ladies put in and generous activities!
I loved the variety of interactions the artists offered. I think the prizes are very generous. I also think leaving the Bonanza open for an extended time allows people more opportunities to participate. Looking forward to finding out all the winners. Great job, Andrea Wood Schmitz!"
The whole day was a lot of fun."
I got Andrea's adult coloring book to relax and forget about the stresses of the day.
It is a 30+ page book filled with beautiful designs.
I love the artists work.
They are unique and whimsical.
I like that it is just a crazy design - similar to a kaleidoscope - not an actually object.
Loved ALL OF THIS AND THE ARTISTS! OK so I didn't get much work done at work. Shhhhhh!
WOW! That was a blast!!
Thank you, Andrea, for organizing such a wonderful event and for welcoming me to join you.
I loved it and will gladly do it again.
Thank you Andrea Wood Schmitz. I like the fact that I can go back and read some things, and watch the videos. It was super fast paced - this even kept me busy all day. I think I entered every contest as it was happening. smile emoticon Now I can go back and look at other participants work as well. Thanks - a lot of fun it was!
I had a blast. It was fun to see all of the different styles and be introduced to artist's I had not discovered yet. I would like to see the next contest happen over a weekend. I found that I got absolutely nothing accomplished at work that day because I have no self-control and could not stay off of the page.
Andrea is amazingly generous with her experience and with sharing what she learns in a fast-paced environment!
I had a lot of fun, I also found new artists I likely wouldn't have. I bookmarked so many pages and youtube videos. I thought it was a really great idea. Thank you to all of the artists and hosts that put this all together for all of us.
Andrea Wood Schmitz thanks for all your hard work i really enjoyed this hope to be able to get on longer next time thanks everyone.
Thanks for making coloring fun by offering cool designs, awesome tips, and videos. I love your fun spirit and look forward to receiving your emails.
