I'm crazy about dogs and running.  I have one adorable spaniel mix AND at least 10 pairs of running shoes.

Let's Doodle: Geometric Practice Pages

Do you like to doodle?

It can be very relaxing.

Not only that, doodling can help improve your memory and may help with stress relief and focus (Harvard Health Publishing, 2016).

And as a bonus, the finished results are often surprisingly cool and interesting to look at.

Last summer I downloaded the sheet below and spent part of an afternoon doodling with one of my micron pens. Unfortunately, even after looking all over my desktop and online I simply can NOT find the source for this worksheet.  If you happen to know where it came from please let me know and I'll add the proper link.

Hard to Design With a Busted Shoulder

I haven't been around much because ....

I went for a bike ride ten days ago and had a teeny tiny accident. I rode up onto the sidewalk (on the driveway part) but neglected to angle my wheel properly.

As I flew off the bike I had a split second to think, "Oh, man. This is gonna hurt!" before I landed. 

And I was right.

After many kind bystanders, the police, and paramedics came to my aid I found myself in the local emergency ward with a busted shoulder.




I've had to put my running, cycling and designing on temporary hold.

Tomorrow, though, I'm going to attempt my water colour class.

Oh! Did I mention? I'm right-handed. It will be fun regardless :)

Happy October and stay safe, friends!
