To the other coloring book ladies: are you narrowing down which ones you like?

I don't think I care for the ones (mandellas) as much as the paisley designs. More variation. The repeats so constantly aren't my favorites. They're very pretty, but I like more variation.

 

What ones are you leaning towards now that you've colored some?

Actually, mandelas and paisleys are my favorites.  However, right now, I'm "into" Christmas coloring.  I bought Anna Griffin's set of Christmas books from HSN recently and am currently working on one which I hope to use as a Christmas decoration in my home when I finish it.  If I like a completed project, I frame it (in one of those cheapie plain black frames) and hang it where I can see it).  Others are currently relegated to a manila folder!!!  I LOVE coloring!!!

 

(Ooops!  Regulated should have been relegated!)
