Jenean Morrison “Nature Designs” Coloring book for adults

Sorry about the dog interruptions, My dog Wally really wanted to be in the video!
I recently purchased Jenean Morrison’s new coloring book Nature designs. As usual I am pleased with the quality of her work,
This coloring book is truly GORGEOUS!
There are fun and unique designs that anyone will enjoy!
-Birds
-flowers
– Butterflies

*Single sided
* Quality paper
*gorgeous cover
*Designs that do not go too far to the edge of the page.
* Good variety

I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a digitally done book that is great quality and fun to color!! The paper is 60lb white paper, It’s not super thick but not super thin. You can use markers if you are gentle. or put something behind the pages to avoid the bleed. As always I’m impressed with the fun cover too !! I love the added green. If you enjoy this book, You will also enjoy her other books, They are similar but have their own theme!

The New Trend In Adult Coloring Books!

What the F***
Is there a new trend within Adult coloring?
What do you think of when you think of Adult coloring? Something sexual? Something offensive? Surprisingly not a lot of coloring books are dirty or offensive. They have cute animals, Mandalas or other more complex versions of childhood coloring books, certainly not coloring books you’d need to hide from your children that’s for sure! But Lately, a new type of coloring book has quickly made it’s way to the bestseller lists of Amazon and has become the topic of discussion. They are called Sweary adult coloring books.

bitch

Why sit down and color a panda bear, when you can sit down after long day of work and color a “Dumb ass” page that clearly describes your supervisor. Or color a “bitch” page, representing that snotty lady at the grocery store.
There are English bad words, Bad words from other countries, Granny swears, And other silly ones to choose from.
This is the new way to relax! Let’s color some shit! Or if swear words aren’t the thing for you, there are sexual positions coloring books, Fetishes, Even coloring books with weaponry. Artists have worked hard to create a mass of ridiculous books in every genre to fit the needs of everyone.
What does it take to relax in our busy and stressful lives these days? What types of books do you want to see next?

Here are some of the Sweary books right now on Amazon!

Animal Forest Coloring Book

Animal Forest
Animal forest coloring book, Is the first coloring book I’ve ever published! It’s filled with beautiful hand drawn animals. I had so much fun making this book. I’ve always loved animals and was amazed by how many animal coloring books lack a variety. My first coloring page drawn was the Duck. I wasn’t going to publish it after 45 pages, But instead wait until I had at least 100.

Duck_result

But all of my friends and family were pushing me to publish it because they were excited to see it. So Animal Forest has 45 coloring pages. After reading many reviews from Colorists out there. I made the difficult decision of making it a one sided coloring book, Originally I wanted to make it a double sided book because It gives it a more artistic look. I wanted to make people happy so It ended up being just a single sided book. I’m happy about that decision now, Because It gave people the opportunity to tear their colored pages out and hang them up! A video of me going through the pages 🙂

The Best Colored Pencils For Adult Coloring Books

Have you decided to give into the Adult Coloring Trend? You may feel overwhelmed with all of the choices. From Mandalas, Animals and designs, along with a bunch of colored pencil brands you may of not heard of.
Of course, Picking up a pack of Crayola’s may be a good option, They are price friendly and have durable and fairly smooth leads. Everyone has their own favorite brand of colored pencil. Obviously some people like Roseart. Otherwise they’d be out of business. Here is a Quick overview on the colored pencils I’ve tried.

Crayola

Crayola colored pencils come at a great price! They are cheaper, Durable. And overall nice looking. They blend well and can create nice shades. If you are on a budget, Or if you are a beginner, I highly recommend Crayola. It seems funny the same brand you were probably using in Elementary school is here for you to use again. They haven’t changed over the years, and they still are a great quality product! The only complaint I have is a lot of the sets have the same seemingly unnatural colors to them. I’m not real fond of the colors, They create very vibrant work, But if you are looking for a degree of realism it will be hard to achieve with Crayolas.

Prismacolor Premier

If you are whiling to spend a little bit more money, Prismacolor Premier will surprise you! These colored pencils are Amazing, They are soft and durable. They blend beautifully. They have a ton of beautiful colors, They will make your coloring pages look incredible! I have used these for a lot of my coloring and am very happy with them.

Prismacolor verithin

On a budget? But want quality! Here are Prismacolor Verithins These pencils are much harder than the Prismacolor Premier pencils. They don’t blend as easily. They are great for outlining, you don’t have to worry about any kind of smearing. They coat the paper nicely. These go well with the Prismacolor Premier pencils and will help you create lots of shades and textures, But these pencils are great on their own too.
Prismacolor Watercolor

I won’t go into too much detail with watercolor pencils, Because most colorists do not use them on pages, Many adult coloring books have a lot of tight spaces, and it can be difficult to color those with watercolor.
Prismacolor watercolor pencils are the way to go if you are looking for watercolors, As regular pencils you get the same feel and blend as the Prismacolor Premier pencils. But once you put water on the colors it blends and smears with your paintbrush, Allowing you to paint in what you want, With minimal leftover lines and bleed.

 

Koh- I- Noor Progresso Woodless

I used to get weird stares in class when I pulled out my woodless pencils. They are a strange creature; They do not have wood, But instead a thin layer of coating to hold the pencil intact. These pencils are fun and interesting. But DO NOT drop them, They shatter like glass. If you are accident prone like I am, you won’t have these very long. They are fun to try out, though. These pencils are reasonable; You can sharpen them the same way you sharpen any old pencil. In the same sharpener. They blend well, and work, But I’d say they are just as good as Crayolas. And no better.

Reeves

Reeves, is like the cheaper brand. When you cannot afford Prismacolor haha. I have always loved Reeves, Because you get a good quality product at a great price. The colored pencils are a lot like Crayolas, Again. But I’d conside them to be a little bit better, The leads are harder and the colors are more natural.
I hope these recommendations were helpful in your search! If you want to purchase the pencils just click the photos of the pencils and it will take you to Amazon!
Are you looking for a coloring book now? Then I highly recommend my very own coloring book Animal Forest Coloring for All ages!
It will be a perfect fit for your new colored pencils!

 

How A Poor College Student Learned How To Invest

As I continued my education, it was common knowledge that people who invested their money were overall more wealthy. Just saving your money in your bank account wasn’t enough. But how can you afford to do more when it’s all you have?

The average U.S. household with debt carries $15,355 in credit card debt and $129,579 in total debt.
(Source: NerdWallet)

I started educating myself on this elusive word. So many people avoid investing like a plague “You have to be rich” “It’s too complicated” Many people use these two excuses to not invest. But after educating myself on a couple strategies, I learned of one method that is really a game changer. It’s called Peer to Peer lending. Even though I was in bad debt, Student loans and credit card debt. I decided to take my savings and get my feet wet. I found it surprisingly easy. I started with just 25.00, The interest much higher than what the bank will give you… The stingy 1.00% interest rate.
It’s important to me that I help other middle-income families make their lives better! I want to help. So I wrote a book called “Stress Less, Invest more.”

What is Peer to Peer lending? Basically, you are lending money to people you do not know. You are trusting them to pay you back. You only have to lend them 25.00 and other people pitch in their 25.00 Until it equals the balance that the person is looking for. Like all investment strategies, it carries risk. But I’ve found this method to be very helpful in making extra money, In my book I describe in vivid detail on how to get started, what some of the terms mean, And what you can do based on your OWN personal lifestyle. I have learned through this experience that you don’t have to be rich to invest, and it’s not as complicated as everyone thinks it is.

Mercari V. Ebay

IMG_2566IMG_2567IMG_2571

SHOULD I USE MERCARI OR EBAY TO SELL MY STUFF?
My review on the fantastic selling app Mercari
★★★★★
I was a bit hesitant to use the app Mercari while I’ve had lots of experience using Ebay. This seemed much less popular; I didn’t think I would sell anything!
I went ahead and tried it Because Ebay can be a pain in the butt to use. They make you provide so much information on each product. This makes it take forever to list many items.
Especially if you are looking to do some serious clutter removal.
I also don’t like eBay, Because the competition among bigger businesses. Ebay is not always individual seller friendly. I firmly believe you can make money on eBay if you try. But selling on eBay can be risky. I like the bidding platform for flexibility.It seems rare to have your items sell more than what you actually are wishing them to sell for, If you set the bid price high, people don’t seem to want to bid on your item. It is sort of silly logic. I’ve seen products sell for upwards of 60.00 that had a bid start price of 0.99 and the exact same product sell for just 53.00 because the seller set up their listing for that price originally.
SHIPPING FRIENDLY.
With eBay, they will let you print a discounted label directly from their site, Making it easier to ship items.
With Mercari if you do not know how to ship, They can send you a label, Fed Ex or USPS your choice.
I like that because not only is Mercari filled with everyday people, But It also allows easy usage of people who are not familiar with the shipping process. I was pleasantly surprised when I began using Mercari, My stuff sold at a decent speed. People will leave comments and request the price they want and you can choose whether or not to change your prices. It makes selling easy. I highly recommend it. Right now they do not charge any commission so you can make a serious profit off your unused stuff laying around! The app set up is easy to use and friendly. It is simple and to the point, you can list things fairly quickly.
The only bad thing I’ve found about Mercari, it’s limited to your phone.If you have items, you need to ship you have to type manually in the address on your computer or other printing compatible device. This is scary because you may make a mistake. Another method is by copying and pasting the address on your phone, Then Emailing/Texting the address to yourself so you can print the labels. If you find a good system for this let me know. I’d love to hear about it.
I have got to admit the front page, Is terribly addicting, It automatically updates as people list new items. I see great deals often. So It can be hard not to go on a shopping spree. Some of my purchases have been:
Brand new pair of Dr. Martens floral boots, I only paid 45.00 for FREE shipping
Tresemme Shampoo and Conditioner, x4 bottles 28 oz each for 15.00 FREE SHIPPING
Vera Bradley wristlet and case , 19.00 FREE SHIPPING
As you can see, you can save much money too, While you earn money selling stuff. You can even use your Mercari credits to purchase items, Or use DIRECT DEPOSIT To send it to a bank account.
The site also has a feedback system similar to eBay, which gives you the advantage to build your reputation.
I recommended this app in my eBook “Sell Everything” because it is been helpful to me cleaning up my house and earning extra money. You can even go to a local thrift store and buy stuff, Then resell it on Mercari, Potentially building an online business.
If you use my referral code, We each get 2.00! Try out Mercari! It will help you a bunch. It’s YJSVYP

Buy all of your food in BULK ONLINE!

dreamstime_m_54120499

We’ve all heard about Costco and Sam’s club, but how about even better prices, without leaving our house? There are many not well known sites that actually make this very possible. Lots of dried food items like Pastas, Beans, and sauces. Have a very long shelf life. Yet we spend lots of gas and wear and tear on our car going to and from the store buying these “boxed “items that cost a fortune. Maybe you are fortunate enough to live near a Winco. How about online? When you don’t have time for shopping? Buying in bulk can save serious cash, if you know how to process and use the food on time.
General tips to avoiding wasted bulk food.
1. If you’ve never tried it, spend the extra money and buy a smaller container. It will save you a lot of money in case you hate it.
2. Try a variety of generic brands! Some may taste awful, while others will probably taste much better.
3. Focus on the price per oz. of food or liquid you are getting, rather than the price per unit, sometimes smaller contained foods are actually cheaper than larger ones. DON’T let that trick you. I found at the grocery store that a 12 pack of eggs Vs. An 18 pack, Buying x2 12 packs actually gave me the better deal on price-per-egg over purchasing one 18 pack. This will vary among stores and locations so make sure to look into this before you try the same tactic.
My favorite site is,
Webstraunt store:
http://www.webstaurantstore.com/?gclid=CMXt1vHwu8gCFYk7aQodVp0D_w
Why use Webstraunt store?
One main reason… REDHOT SAUCE! You can get four Gallons of it for 46.99
Here are some other examples of the prices you can expect to find.
Shell Pasta 20lbs for 12.49
Mini Pretzels: 8Lbs for 11.49
Del Monte Ketchup: 12 bottles (14 Oz’s) each 12.99

Overall this site is absolutely amazing, A HUGE selection of pastas, Marinades, Sauces, Coffee, Soda syrup, Marinades, Tea, Canned fruits and vegetables, Gravy, Canned meat, Popcorn supplies, Candies, Asian foods, Spices, EVEN K CUPS for your coffee maker!
The only Con to this site: If you don’t have a business address to ship to, Shipping can be steep. So it’s recommended to find a place that will allow you to ship your goods there to pick up, OR order lots of stuff to offset the costs of shipping! Overall worth it! Maybe contact neighbors and friends and they will place an order too. Maximize your order. You can also contact local businesses to see if they’d be willing to let you ship your stuff to them. Or maybe at your workplace!

Here are some other bulk sites that I haven’t tried yet, what is your favorite way to save money on food?

Listia

Getting rid of your JUNK, With Listia!
https://www.listia.com

Listia is a lot like eBay,
Instead everything is free. It’s a wonderful site, Where you can trade items you don’t need for items that you actually want. When you sell something, You get credits. Those credits can be applied to another item you want to purchase.
It’s basically a trading website!
They even have a feedback system so you can track your reputation it’s super addicting!
I’ve sold thousands of items on there. And I am very pleased. You can even earn more credits by doing special offers, Including surveys and such. They often have contests and drawings for prizes and credits. There is a raffle you can participate in for free stuff!
You can get home items, Plants, Electronics, toys, office supplies, furniture, Books, Bath and body items, make up. They have everything!
I have even made a profit. If you sell gift cards, you will get a ton of credits that can be applied to any other item on the site. Gift cards are considered more valuable than any other item because they most closely resemble cash. Everything sells better on Listia because people want to get rid of their credits.
Also, because credits have an unknown value, It’s different for everyone. Many items I thought no one in the world would want, Have sold well on Listia.
Like most sites, Listia has its restrictions, But it even allows you to sell your used bras. Many sites don’t allow that. Many bras are expensive, So for all the women out there! You can rehome your Victoria’s Secret bra’s and actually get something out of it.
They even have a rewards store where you can purchase a brand new item!
Yes bidding, Like eBay it’s mostly bidding. Which gives flexibility on how many credits to spend. I love this site Because it helps us be green and reuse items! You can even get electronics like cell phones, Ipods, Videogame systems. I used to sell gift cards and resale the Nintendo DS XL’s I got for profit! I made over 600.00 doing this! I even got myself a free DS.
Overtime Listia has made changes, Their reward store no longer has GIN prices (get It now) It’s all bidding, I’m hoping they’ll change that again in the future, Because I would love to get more video game systems to resell for profit. But for now, It’s still a wonderful site if you are looking for ways to declutter your home, Even for the “lesser” wanted items. They will actually sell well on Listia.
Sign Up now! www.Listia.com

Listia tips

-Items sell much better with free shipping, By taking on the shipping cost almost all of your items will sell.

-Start the bids low, Check what is on demand on the site, This will help you maximize your credit profits

-Avoid selling anything out of season, It won’t be as wanted as much

-If you purchase something from someone else, DO NOT PAY THE SHIPPING, Avoid listings that make you pay shipping. Unless the seller will accept Paypal, That way you are covered by paypal buyer protection. Listia customer service is great, but they will not reimburse your cash, If the seller decides to not go through with the transaction. They only reimburse credits. If you need a money reimbursement then you will need to go through Paypal.

This is another site that was in my best selling book, “Sell Everything

How To Start In The Stock Market

Many mid-income to lower income people, talk about investing one day when they are making a lot of money, But what they don’t realize is they can start investing some of their discretionary income right now!
I don’t make a lot of money, I work part time. But Investing is a lot of fun; I’ve found a lot of simple ways to invest while being poor at the same time! (haha)
Everyone has heard of the stock market! But where do you even begin!? It seems so complicated. I’ve found a website to solve that problem!
www.Loyal3.com
Loyal 3 is the perfect stock investing website for beginners, you can easily invest in your favorite well-known brand such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Amazon, Burger King, Starbucks. With as low as just 10.00! Yes! You can start purchasing ANY STOCK you want with just 10.00
What is the catch?
If you haven’t seen the price of stock shares, you will notice they are much larger prices than just 10.00, but sometimes we can’t afford those prices. For example the stock price of Amazon right now is,
567.00 Per share!! Many of us cannot afford that much money right away. Plus if you were on a traditional investing website, they would charge you a ton in fees. Even if you did manage to find a stock that was under your 10.00, the fees would make It not worth it to you.
Loyal 3 does what they call, “batch Trading” The batch trading allows us to buy a small piece of the stock, with our 10.00 more. Other people will also invest their 10.00 and eventually all of these 10’s will add up to cover the share of stock, That is one of the bad things about Loyal 3, Because they do the batch trading, Your trades aren’t immediately. You have to wait sometimes a day or two for them to go through. That means the stock price could drop or rise at this time, and you may get more or less ownership of a share than you originally anticipated.

Loyal 3 is great for the “buy and hold” method, and for those of you familiar with Warren Buffet this is the method he uses to minimize his losses in the stock market,
The buy and hold method, means you buy the stock and you hold it, you don’t sell it even as it goes up and down. You keep the ownership of the stock for a long period of time before selling.
This is also a great method, because if you invest in DIVIDEND stocks,
What are dividend stocks?
The company which you own stock for will review their earnings every couple months and issue you a small payment for owning shares of stock. These will be smaller payments, but you can take those payments and reinvest them or send them back to your bank account. If you don’t have a lot of money, and you plan to stick with Loyal 3 for a while, I highly recommend you invest in these companies.
How do I know if the companies I’m about to invest in, are dividend paying stocks?
Just go on Google, Type in the company’s name then “stock” and see what comes up, Here is an example. I typed in “Amazon Stock”

stock3 (2)
Amazon has no percentage or number listed. Therefore, Amazon does not give dividends. If you look up Pepsi (PEP) there is a 2.82% Percent dividend. Meaning every 4 months, you will earn dividends at a 2.82% of each share you own. If you own less than a share, they will give you the portion that you deserve.

loyal3-free-stock-purchase
Why not just put the money in savings
Stock investing is risky, Even on www.loyal3.com your funds are not FDIC insured, meaning you could lose your money. But with savings accounts being a lousy 1.0% saving rate, IF THAT! There is no point in just leaving a massive amount of money to rot in your account. Investing some of it can potentially make you much larger returns. You need to do your research and make sure the company you choose to invest in will perform how you want it to. Although, don’t try to find patterns or predict the stock market, you can’t! It’s random. Sometimes you win, Sometimes you lose. But your chances are much better for a win, then going to Vegas and gambling your money away. So I highly recommend giving it a go. Because Loyal3 just gives you your basics, you don’t have unlimited choices on the stock to choose from. Loyal3 mostly has bigger well-known companies that you are probably really familiar with. It lowers the chance of you losing your money too because sometimes those start-up businesses can be scary. Loyal3 also offers IPO’s which you can do you research on those, They are much riskier than regular stock because they are new and fresh in the market.
Like any investing strategy DIVERSIFY
Loyal3 gives you very little chances to diversify your money but do what you can do put it on multiple companies.
Moving on to bigger sites
I like Loyal 3 because it gives you a basic experience of stock investment, it can help prepare you for the bigger sites. If you choose to move on, make sure you have a pretty good amount of money to invest. Loyal3 doesn’t charge any fees but other websites do. Take the time to learn the new website before you start investing, that way you won’t make bad decisions.

Looking to try other strategies? In my Upcoming book I will talk about PEER TO PEER INVESTING!

I will teach you everything you need to know to start investing on Prosper and Lending club.
