A quick little ditty.

I recently discovered a few older time-lapse videos that you should see soon. This one, however, was made just the other day. Easy peasy doodle. Enjoy!

I had a rare opportunity to sit home in my PJs all day today and, of course, managed to work for a few hours and unpack boxes for another couple of hours. That’s just me. I can’t sit around all day and do nothing. Today turned out quite well. I feel rejuvenated. So enjoy the time lapse video of this spunky doodle being created.

The challenge went out to hundreds of doodlers in the Facebook group, For the Love of Doodling, to create their own version of this doodle. I’m so happy to share the great variety of results!

(Note: An odd number of items is typically more visually appealing than an even number of items.)
