I doodle every day. I doodle on my “to do” list and on my envelopes mailing money in for bills. I doodle when I am bored, happy, sad, excited, nervous or feeling anxious. It helps me clear my mind. It supports the creative part of my brain in calming down and focusing. It makes a difference for me, a big one. It is my passion and lucky for me it has become my career. I am proud to be a Sharpie Squad alum!
I shared a doodle or two last week in my post for Tombow and Operation Write Home and got more comments on that blog than any other, mostly thanking me for sharing the doodles. I was stunned. Doesn’t everyone doodle? Apparently not.
I shared some doodles for Camp Doll Diaries this week to go with the Horse Camp theme. The response is overwhelmingly, thanking me for sharing my doodles.
I created this little doodle this morning with my favorite Sharpie and shared it on Facebook.
I chose it because I want my 14 year old son to be reminded that he has lots to be proud of. While he may be playing wayyyyyyy too many video games this summer, he made it to some awesome master level yesterday. He shared it with me with lots of explaining as if I should be disappointing or angry. I am just happy that he is so proud. It is summer. He is a great kid. I do always say, “If you are going to do something, give it your all and do your best.” I do have some responsibility in the amount of time he has played to get this extraordinary level, even if if it exceed the recommended parenting amount of allowed video time.
I was asked in a comment if it were a download that could be used with kids of this doodle. So here I am, posting it to share. I love it. I love what I do and I love to share. I mostly love sharing when it is for kids and I believe that all kids have lots to be proud of.
And here is the download so you can add color and make it your own. I actually doodled four this morning so have a blast!
