    Personal opinion: Just a new thing to suck up time and very much like paint by the numbers. My suggestion is to stick to one or two of your favorite crafts and enjoy learning all about them. When you get to be my age, you wonder why there are so many unfinished things around and they are usually new "crafts" that dont amount to much.

    Those vendors can come up with so many ways to get our money and really return little.

    I had not heard of this and had to look it up. I like the abstract pieces but Im not much for representational art, especially homemade. The colors and textures are wonderful in the abstract pieces! I could see how it would be meditative, Like those coloring Mandelas that were popular a couple of years ago.

    Is this sometimes called "Diamond Dots"? I have a couple of siblings that enjoy it. They say it is just sitting and concentrating on the pattern/creating is very relaxing. I've never tried it and would like to do a very small one... just to see if I would like it or not.

    I've seen it and I know a few people who've done it and enjoyed it. Not my thing, but if you like it, go for it! I can see where it would be very calming.
