How do YOU decide… what to read next? Bookworm Problems #3

HA, so Sarah J Mass did a great job then.

My Johanna Basford Colouring Day-To-Day Calendar

I am so happy with this treat from the sales of Johanna Basford Colouring Calendar that I wanted to tell you about it and show you how lovely her artwork is to colour.

What I liked about the idea of this was that the pictures were smaller and I thought probably faster to colour, although it’s not a race I wanted to feel I had completed more pictures from my growing colouring collection.
