I never realized a single birthday present will go a long way and even a Facebook Group. It all started when I gave a colleague a birthday gift - coloring book for adult. She's a type of girl who like to draw, do lettering and doodles, and its a must, not just for pastime.
So I gave her Mosaic Masterpieces by Creative Haven that was on the window of a bookstore. Lucky find I guess.. One by one, everyone is buying their own book and coloring stuff. People become busy looking for inspiration and pictures from the internet.
Then, we started looking forward on going to the park near our office to color during coffee breaks. And staying to color in pantry and canteen when its raining..
We are also going too far, googling, spying and following those Coloring Book Authors like Kerby Rosanes, Johanna Basford, Valentina Harper-Ramos, Thaneeya McArdle, Jim Gogarty and Jaelle Andrada Albaniel to name a few.. And this insane idea of setting-up Coloring Book for Adults in Philippines Facebook Group.
Of course, being a colorist, we need to attend the First National Coloring Book Day this August 2, 2015. Me and my friends are now thinking and planning activities since this will be the first ever in the Philippines and World. We would like to throw a party but that would not be possible for now.
Anyways, we are accepting sponsors, anyone who got ideas and who want to help are welcome. I donated all my Dogecoin for this and hope to get more. You can donate Dogecoin at DFCoGr69DAEjjHdf6495LdTPobDkrSf7tD or buy photos at GirlTravelFactor Dogelet and all the proceeds will go to First National Coloring Book for Adults in Philippines Day.
Everyone is invited and we will keep you posted when and where!
