Crowdfunding finished
To process a difficult phase in my life I started to work on creative projects. I enjoyed drawing mandalas and combined them with positive affirmations. They helped me to regain inner strength, embrace the present moment and forget my worries. The books were created for friends and family as a Christmas presents. Now I want to share them with the world.

What is this project all about?

It’s a Colouring Book for adults. To slow down, to forget your daily worries and struggles and to embrace the present moment. Combined with positive affirmations it helps you to focus on the good things in life and regain inner strength.
The creation of the book was my own process to deal with difficult times in my life. The first copies of the book were printed in a local copy shop in Chiang Mai, Thailand as Christmas presents for family and friends.
Because the feedback was so overwhelmingly positive the idea of sharing the book with the world was quickly created.
The patterns and shapes were created with much love and accuracy.
With the minimalist design the creator is inspired to fill the pages with colourful life.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

The goal is to enable the printing and selling of the books. Because I’m a total newbie in selfpublishing my dedicated work and professional support needs to be financed. I would like to sell the books in person at markets and events in Berlin or possibly in other cities. Being in touch with my customers and having a personal relationship is important to me. Additionally I would like to have my own series of colouring events in Berlin to bring people together, who are interested in mindfulness and creative art work.
If the second finance goal is achieved, crayons can be added to the colouring books as a set. Also a website with an online shop can be created, an ISBN number can be purchased and other products such as more colouring books with various topics, a calendar to colour in, postcards and other things can be made.

Target group:
Colouring is not only for children. It’s a great tool for people all ages to practice mindfulness and creativity. It slows you down and lets you embrace the present moment.

“'I'm not very creative' doesn't work. There's no such thing as creative people and non-creative people. There are only people who use their creativity and people who don't. Unused creativity doesn't just disappear. It lives within us until it's expressed, neglected to death, or suffocated by resentment and fear.” ~ Brené Brown

Why would you support this project?

Because we live in a quite hectic and over stimulated world, it can be hard to recognise our own inner peace and power and hence to fulfill our true potential. This book can help you and others to practice more mindfulness, creativity and calmness.
Often we focus too much on the dark sides in life. The unique colouring book is a project for our society to spread more positivity and serenity and to follow our own intuition.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

• Print the books in an environmental friendly way
• Sale the books in person
• Organisation of colouring in events
• Sale the books as a set with crayons
• Creation of an Online Shop
• Registration an ISBN Number
• Creation of more products (calendars,…)

Who are the people behind the project?

Me - Tina, 27, from Dresden, Germany. My life story is slightly different and has many interesting ups and downs. At the age of 19 I went to Australia for my first overseas experience. Originally planned were 8 months – but the journey lasted almost 8 years. I called Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Panama and Laos my home far away from home. Of course the path was not always easy, but I learned so much and grew to the person I am now.
I’ve been back in Germany for only a few months to reconnect with my roots, to follow certain interests (yoga, nutrition, sport, dancing, spirituality,..) and to try new career paths.
I always knew I am a quite creative person, but neglected this part of me. To process a recent emotional down in my life, I started to paint and draw during a trip in South East Asia. That’s how the book was created. I call it my passion project.
