Did you know that May 8 through May 14 is Doodle Week? I think maybe Claire made it up, but so what? What fun!!
I’ll be participating, of course. I’ve been doodling lately, mostly inspired by Claire, Laura and RaShell. The thing is, my doodles are actually… well, kind of deliberate. They’re not mindless wanderings of my pen. I never doodle when I’m on the phone. (First, I try to avoid ever being on the phone, and then I try to get out of a conversation in under three minutes, and if I’m on a call for longer than that I’ll pace.) I hardly ever doodle in meetings. (Though lately… oy, have I been in some loooooooong meetings!) Mostly I doodle while watching my DVDs. heh heh heh
Oh. And I have to add color to them because… well, because I love color! So stick around for Doodle Week… coming soon to a blog near you!
I think I may of made it up, with a lot of help from Laura 🙂
It just sort of happened!
Thanks for posting this! I am really really really looking forward to your doodles 🙂

hee hee It’s fun to see things just HAPPEN. Can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with.
Thanks for the post. I wouldn’t have pulled it together without Claire. Will be glad to see your doodles. I love colours too and have been colouring some of mine with marker pens.

Hi, So you are from Chicago. My husband grew up near Graceland cemetery and he hung out there with his friends also. but it really is a nice place for being a cemetery. Some of the monuments and tombstones are so nice.

Hi I know already about the Doodle week, but what o we need to do, how do we participate, or where to submit Doodles. Sorry for beeing so dumb. Thanks.

@Laura… I think I’d love my colored doodles more if my scanner could accurately replicate the colors on the paper. Sadly, this is not the case. Feh! One of the several reasons why I need a new scanner.
@elvislover… Yeppers! I’m a Chicago kid. My grade school best friend lived a couple of blocks away. There’s a little row of mausoleums that used to remind us of an Old West ghost town. We were weird kids.
@Jasko… click the Doodle Week badge. It will take you to the Doodle Week site. 🙂
It should be fun, huh 🙂 My doodles are also not exactly mindless, but I do like to doodle while doing something else, such as… “watching” tv. My husband is always very amused at how I manage to know what’s going on in my favorite shows without looking much at the screen 😉
“See you” on the Doodle Week!
RaShell’s last blog post..Coffee house heaven
My husband is the same way. I hardly ever have to actually watch tv to watch tv. Everything is pretty well sound-oriented.
Doodle Week is going to be rockin’ fun!
