We are now only 4 weeks away from the official start of spring and I am so ready for it.

I have seen so many squirrels lately and that inspired this doodle sketch. It was all from my imagination so the squirrel has an unfortunate cat like look around the eyes.

This week was so much fun! I got to spend 3 class periods teaching doodle lettering to middle school students. It was really great to see the lights go on in the eyes of the kids when they "got it!"

I'm hoping to get the chance to do some more drawing this weekend but if I don't at least I got something posted! Yippee!

I hope you get the chance to do something creative and share that creativity with us too!

I'm loving the doodles!

These doodles are so much fun to do.

I finished 36 different patterns this weekend. A few of them are ones that I may even see about getting made as rubber stamps.

Working in black ink on bright white card is so exciting, You can end up with such graphic designsI can see some of them being made into fabric or like I said before rubberstamps. Or they may just be used for my own learning and end up in a box on a shelf. Who knows?

I really would love to be able to earn some money with my art. Some folks have been trying to talk me into doing more with my work in ways that can be sold. But I worry about making my art in to Work for pay. Sigh... I just don't know what to do, So I'm sort of just making art and I'll let things sort of percolate for a while. Who knows what will happen but for now I'm having fun!

I hope you are getting the chance to do something creative!

Doodle Time!

I love doing Black and White doodles!
It is so exciting to see what happens when a design starts to take shape. I usually don't have any clue as to what I'm going to do or how it is going to end up in the end. Sort of like real life, I guess. :)

The creative process really get to take over in these doodles. The human mind is so amazing, we can look at a series of black lines on white paper and we can make it look like something in the real world or something that lives just in the eye of the viewer.

I hope you enjoy the process and let me know what you think about these pieces!

Remember to get out and do something creative today!

Happy Valentine's Day

Here's my Valentine that I drew for my husband. My doodle heart is filled with joy and love for my sweetie . We have been married for 24 years and each day is still an adventure. I really enjoyed making this Valentine. Over the years I have hand made many cards for my husband--We even have the very first Valentine that I made for him when we were still in High School--it's in a frame hanging on our bedroom wall.

I hope that you have a chance to share warm feelings with a special person this year.
Remember to take some time to be creative and share t love!

Dream Time


I have finished my hand drawn alphabet. Here's a sample of some of the letter.

Now I am going to have to figure out what I'm going to do with it. It really is amazing to me, when I look at all the letters all together it is surprising how well it works as a whole. I went into this project without any pre planning or any idea of where I was going to go with it.

I'm going to try and find out how to make this into a True Type Font. I think that would be kinda cool! I'm also thinking about how I can go about digitizing the letters in a bit more basic form so I can use them with my embroidery sewing machine.

I have so many ideas and now it's time for me to learn how to do more with my art work. who knows...I may end up with a new side business.

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please share!

cheers! Remember to do something creative today!!

This is my first February entry. :) 1 month gone in 2009 already! Wow!!

I have been giving my self hand cramps doing loads of doodles these past few days. I actually have been drawing and doodling even though my wrist is giving me fits! I'm just so into this right now it is hard to stop. I have even been taking my doodles to work and doing them while my computer at work is processing.

I have decided to work on an alphabet in this style. As long as I remember that I can do it 1 letter at a time I think I will actually finish this project!. So for now I have 8 letters done. The S, A, B are my initials, I have started doing my family's initials and that will get me quite a long way to getting the whole alphabet done.

Wish me luck!
Now get out there and do something creative today!!
