Shaking up my day this morning getting out of my little studio to meet up with a friend. It was perfect weather to be out and about today. I headed to a local cafe for a good cup of cafe mocha and to enjoy some engaging conversation. Afterwards I was inspired to create this little doodle.
Cookie cat was patiently waiting for my return.
Just a little line drawing to amuse the muse…
Watercolor, marker and pencil on paper
During the creative process sometime I don’t know what I will create this time I started with a blank page penciling a few random lines letting the image appear and just go for it.
A nutritious balanced meal mid day is a must to keep your energy up. For big and little monsters.. Have a fun day!
When my kiddo needs a bag lunch for a school trip I love to doodle up some fun.. I love to doodle on everything. I think she enjoys it as much as I do.
Out of the shadow
light draws an appearance
I see differently today
Placement makes all the difference. As shadows grew over the art, the light made its presence, it soaked upon my thoughts, sharing in words of inspiration today.

During our morning routine before school, my daughter asked me to write a poem. My first thought, I don’t have anything to write about. Then other thoughts followed..
I hear…… Unknown to me
the sound echos through the empty house
bang, clank shakes me awake
a ghostly presence of make believe
rooms filled with chatter
I try to muffle the noise
my mind is free
to dance around my thoughts
(mixed media art, pencil, marker and cut paper)
Because my love for creating is strong
I will doodle on everything
I will always be late
I will always be caught in a daydream
I will lack sleep
I will always wear handmade jewelry
I will set my sights for inspiration everyday
I will sail across the page in all kinds of adventure
I will always be a storyteller……. to be continued

Crazy days, we work hard to keep balance only to feel like a juggling fool…..
Stop clowning around and go with the flow!
From my sketchbook: pencil, marker on paper
I try to uphold to a morning routine by carving out time for myself before the hectic throws of the day. My commitment to writing three long hand pages (morning pages) began many years ago when I read the book, The Artist Way, by Julia Cameron. The routine of writing everyday clears the mind, relieves stress and allows you to tap into your well of creativity on a regular basis. My writing this morning inspired this doodle.
My sketch book, pencil, pen on paper.
Live it, create it, draw it, paint it, perform it, design it, write it out
and stay true to self.
