My name Jill Laperle. My first trip to Disney was way back in 1978. I still remember the first glimpse of the Magic Kingdom with my parents. I even still have some of those unused original tickets buried in a box.
I met and married my Prince Charming (Jeff) and we have 2 Princes (Riley and Aidan). Mickey and Minnie were kind enough to pop in at our wedding (thanks to our parents) and we had an amazing Disney honeymoon. Both of the boys had their first haircuts at the Main Street Barber Shop when they were a year old. In 2009 we became proud DVC owners at Baylake Tower. I have graduated from the College of Disney Knowledge and keep up with that training just to help people plan trips. I made it to the second round for Moms Panel after years of applying. I will keep trying knowing one of these years it will be my turn. I was a beta tester for Disney InsidEARS. I may have a small obsession with Disney Dooney and Harvey Seatbelt bags. I also love collecting Disney iPhone cases, Chamilia beads and other jewelry finds. I am always showing a Disney Side in a small way. Anything else you would like to know just ask.

I recently been looking at the Adult Therapy Coloring Books. When I was younger I was not really into coloring, but then in high school I got a Book of Kells coloring book. It was full of intricate designs and I fell in love. Fast forward to what are now the adult therapy coloring books. To me, they have intricate patterns and many of them looked a lot like my beloved Book of Kells. However, I did not know which one to get until I stumbled upon the Disney themed books. That is right. Disney has come out with their own line of Adult Coloring Books.
I saw the first potential book at a local bookstore. It was called, “Art of Coloring Disney Frozen”. Now as much as I loved Frozen, like everyone else, I wanted something with a little more variety. So I did what anyone one else would do and searched on Amazon. I hit the jackpot. I ordered myself the Disney Princess Art Therapy book and pre-ordered the Star Wars Art Therapy book.

Thankfully, I did not have to wait long, but I had one more problem to solve. What to use to color? I did some more research and could not decide between pencils or fine tip markers. I was able to find a set of 50 colored pencils for a reasonable price, so I decided to start with those. The pencils aren’t bad, but I do find I am struggling a bit with the very intricate pattern. I will most likely switch to extra fine markers when I find a set, I think.

I would love to hear what you think. Are you going to try this new form of therapy with a Disney twist?
