Hello coloring friends! I am pleased to announce my newest book just in time for the holidays, Hello Retro Christmas. This book is my second "10-Minute Mental Health Moment" Coloring Book and features 40 pages of retro-inspired holiday illustrations in a square (8.5 x 8.5) format that are quick and easy to color. The paper is creamy white and drawings have subtle textural shadows in areas to create a background.
I love how these pages turned out! I took a very short break between finishing Hello Beautiful Fall and starting drawing for this book. I've felt really inspired by the concept of the mental health moment and wanted to keep up the momentum I am feeling about this idea.
I love holiday/Christmas themed decor as much as anyone but the look of mid-century mod or "retro" 60's decorations are really what I think are my jam. These kinds of shapes look great with hot pinks and teal blues along with the traditional red and green. I have colored a few pages from Hello Retro Christmas to test and they look amazing with this kind of color scheme. If you are a follower - look for these on my instagram :).
However you color these pages, my hope is that you are taking a mental health moment for yourself. This time of year can be stressful and it helps to focus on ourselves and what we need to keep our joy amongst the frenzy of food, family and finances. I feel more anxiety during this time of year than any other with the weight of expectation and try hard to remember that the holidays are really about sharing time with people that you love. Maybe you feel the same? We really don't need to have it all together in order to enjoy this time.
I wish you a most restful, peaceful and centered holiday season.
