In the meantime…Doodle

Doodling helps me let go, and deal with stress and frustration. So in this time of learning and transition, at the end of the day doodling has helped me unwind. Prayer, exercise, listening to worship music, and focusing on specific passages of Scripture have also been helpful. Here are some doodles from my little graph paper doodle pad:




Happy Doodling!

  2. Hi Valerie..I just want you to know that I just saw your little video here
    http://pinterest.com/pin/228135537345759803/..and I have to tell you it was the most beautiful journal and inspiring message for me that I have found in such a long time...after weeks of trauma for my Mom after a fall..she passed away last week..it has been very sad and difficult, and all I want to do is sleep lay down and in my mind journal...but I cant put any creativity to the paper...until I saw this today...I will watch over and over because it has given me so many ideas, and inspiring thoughts, wishes, dreams and I have a bunch of journals started but just couldnt move on ...and now I feel that I can...just want to say Thanks you for your beauty, inspiration and motivational video..that I will share with all...! Robin

  3. It's a lovely focus & I can see where the doodles influence your other art...Doodling as meditation, yes...art as healing, yes...spiritual studies, prayer, music...and for me, spending some time in nature, and some loving time with friends...for me, also, creating order in my life...your doodles show a strong sense of order...

    Blessings to you!

  7. Thank you for the idea and new English word (doodling!) ! I started to paint again and this is what I need to encourage myself when "drawing" is too much.

  8. Your doodles are wonderful. I did Doodle Camp the summer before last and started a Doodle Club at my school. When I started blogging, doodling fell by the wayside. You make me want to pick it up again.

  11. Oh, you clever girl, Valerie....graph paper. I was just showing my husband and commenting on how precise you are. You're doodles are lovely, but I didn't see the graph paper 'til I read it. What a good idea.

  12. Your doodles are beautiful. And what a great idea to use graph paper. Will be passing this idea onto my sons and I might be able to do some as well. Thanks for the inspiration.
