As I mentioned a few posts ago, I have been in contact with many people who are allowing me to review their work. In the spirit of being upfront and not accused of copying anyone else, I will list these below so we all know what we've got to look forward to seeing on my blog in the near future!
First of all, I am excited to announce that companies such as Stabilo, Tinc, BiC, Pentel, Uni-ball, Edding and West Design Products have offered to send me some pens and pencils for me to review here on Colour with Claire! Check out what I have received so far! As you all know, I'm a massive stationery geek so this is a dream come true for me! Stay tuned for my pen reviews coming soon!

I am in the middle of reviewing The Really Relaxing Colouring Book 10: Colour Therapy by Elizabeth James, which should be up later today. There are some beautiful designs, including very intricate patterns for those of us who like to get stuck in with our fineliners!
I have very gratefully been offered to review 2 books from the publisher Pelekinesis, The Crazy Creatures Colouring Book by Liz Parkinson, and Bugs of the Future Primitive by Ian Pyper. Both these books look really different and interesting, so I can't wait to receive them!
Zifflin has also gifted me 2 books to review, Doodle Invasion and Doodle Realm, which look extremely detailed and fun! Will be taking my time with those two for sure :)

Another independent illustrator, Edwina McNamee, is sending me a copy of her beautiful book Wings & Things as soon as it is published in the next few weeks. The book includes some beautiful designs of insects and wildlife, which will really get me in the mood for Summer I'm sure :)
I was contacted by Wendy Piersall who has sent me a copy of her new book Colouring Flower Mandalas, which looks stunning! I can't wait to get going on it!
