The Mason Jar Salads and More: 50 Layered Lunches to Grab and Go cookbook has changed the way we do things around my home!

Last Fall, I shared about Coloring Animal Mandalas by Wendy Piersall. Her book opened the door to a side of me that had been left dormant for far too long. In coloring again, I’ve been able to relax easier, stay focused, and rediscover that sense of accomplishment when a design is fully completed in coloring. I was encouraged to start experimenting in my art and in doing this I discovered new techniques I never imagined I’d enjoy so much. I’ve been very inspired by Wendy and her gorgeous designs that I feel obligated to share about one of her latest offerings “Coloring Flower Mandalas“.
