There are No Rules for Creativity

Day #22 DoodleADay Challenge:     Some of my doodle’s look like templates for a colouring book.  I think I may go back and colour some of them in for relaxation.  Paint, markers, crayons, it doesn’t matter really.  And there are no rules about staying in the lines. This is an added bonus of the […]

Harnessing Imagination

Day #21 DoodleADay Challenge:   It has been 21 days straight that I have been doodling and I am noticing the good  habit  being established of wanting and making timeto create something everyday.  Because they are so quick they are easy to squeeze into the day and I really don’t worry about how they look.

Self-Exploration via the Doodle

Day  20 #DoodleADay Challenge: Let’s talk about our doodles shall we?

Doodling calls upon your spontaneity, your trust to let go to the process, and […]

There are no mistakes; Day 12

Here’s My #DoodleADay for today:  A scribble pulls on your imagination to birth it into a new creation.   I have been doodling a lot in transit lately.  Passing the time in a meditative focus on doodling.  Of course it’s hard to keep a steady hand when the movement of traveling interferes.  Instead I have […]
