My brother and sister-in-law asked me to doodle a butterfly on their daughter’s wall. What a cool request! (Thank you, bro.) This is a time lapse video of the process, including my Sharpie fail. I think maybe you might need matte finish paint instead of semi-matte or whatever the non-glossy one is that’s still shiny. (haha I’m so technical.)

I’m also going to take a moment to say that Microsoft ruined my life (again) when they changed Movie Maker. It was so easy to drop a few clips in, change transitions, add a title. Done. Not anymore. I fumbled through the new/old version of Movie Maker, nearly threw my computer through the bay window, gave up, and switched back to Adobe Premiere, which is WAY overkill for this kind of video. Plus I haven’t used it in about five years so there was the re-learning.

To make a short story endless, I managed. Please forgive all of my amateur video issues. ^________^

Here’s a little ditty for your Sunday night. Dance with me. 🙂 


I didn’t plan to draw a heart. It just happened. I swear. 

Sleepovers are cool. But for some reason, once you’re a grown-up, it’s just called “staying with a friend.”

Well, I’m not having it. Because I don’t feel like being a grown-up today.

I drew this during a weekend sleepover with a cool friend (who nearly lost her cats to our ferocious beast.)

Because…just because. Go with it.

I started with basic straight lines crossing the page. This is how most lies begin.

Then I filled in all the corners of the wedges. This is the most fun step for some reason, probably because I’m a weirdo.

Now that the corners of your mind…er drawing have gone dark, vary the direction of repeated arcs within the shapes, to cover your lies from every angle. Triangular shapes are easy. The trapezoidal shapes were a bit more challenging. It’s big word Wednesday, btw.

And voila! You have a tangled web of lies, solid for a moment yet so frail as soon as a little pressure is applied.

Don’t be a liar. Liars suck.

2017 weekly planner doodle art coloring book

My personal copy is on its way. As soon as I get it, I’ll share more pictures.

I plan to use mine as a journal since I’ve already got about a gazillion things in my online calendar and I can access that anywhere. This book will be a great way to make a brief note each day about significant events in my life. It removes the weight of spending hours writing out the events of the day like I did in my teens. (Ever go back and read old journals? Oy.) This weekly journal will help me note one or two items from each day that mean something to me. I’ll also be focusing on the positive. This dark mind needs some light. 😉

How do you plan on using yours?

Because this describes the week I’ve had.
