When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Do you doodle?

Recently, I joined an online workshop for art journaling. The first excercise was a doodle exercise. Above you can see some cropped portions of the first 2 pages I did. Journaling is not an easy task. I love to write, but find it hard to put down my thoughts. Incorporating them with artwork is fun and freeing. I love the fact that you can't just read the page. I have had my journals found before and it is very disconcerting to know that your personal thoughts have been read by someone else. If you look close, you could probably read it all, but you would have to take the time!

I am participating in Gitz's YOU: Create Week 14

I am looking forward to more of the excercises in the workshop and I will share my pages as I go. If you are interested in the workshop, please visit my friends at Creative Workshops. The workshop I am taking is Artistic Journaling Your Way by Jodi Ohl. There are many to choose from!


  1. I doodle but NOT like this!!!! Oh my you're a wonder!

  2. Yeah my doodles look nothing like this. Beautiful. You should frame them. Great ideas for homemade cards too.

  3. I love your doodles. They're so intricate!

  4. That is probably one of the coolest things I've seen in a long, long time!
