10 Little Things: Thing 10 (Doodles)

Name 10 little things that make you happy.

Thing number ten: Doodles.



During a tough week, Mrs. B and I discovered we had a mutual love of coloring. There is something so relaxing about coloring...it just focuses your mind in a different way and gets you out of the stressful worry rut. I loved my TCPs with Miss L, but I got out of the habit. So I thought I would focus on doodling and my current obsession, paisley. I got out my ultra-fine-point Sharpies and wondered, how many ways could I doodle paisley?



My husband saw me doodling the tree and gave me that look. That disbelieving look. It relieves stress, I said. You have stress? he asked, with that tone. That disbelieving tone. You know that look and that tone. Like, what could you possibly be stressed about?

But I'm not going to go there.

I'm looking for doodle ideas.



What else could I turn into a paisley doodle?

Wow. Wow, wow, WOW!!! Why in the heck are you not selling these?! At first, I thought that you were sharing your love for some fabulous artist. Um, yeah... YOU!

I did not know this about you and I am slack-jawed right now. You are so talented and I absolutely adore the images themselves. My favorite is the pair of fish.

!!!!!!!

What a wonderful talent you have! My doodles just look like scribbles - I think these are much more than doodles!

Those are lovely! And they make me happy, too. I agree w/Jodi, as long as you would still having fun doing it, sell 'em.

Yay you!

These are so cute! You are very talented, it takes me days to even come up with a doodle I like.

Gorgeous doodles!
I have no doodling talents, but always appreciate those who do doodle well.

You are so talented! Listen to Jodi. Seriously. I am gobsmacked.

(Not that you're so talented--that you're so talented and just now revealing it.)

Hang on! You said 'doodles'. I heard you - you definitely said 'doodles'. These are not doodles. Doodles are squares turned into boxes. And concentric circles so concentricised that you end up with a mis-shapen blob tearing the paper. These are art.

These are clever art. Clever, technical art. I love these. Ms. SmallTownMom you are amazing!
