It’s Doodle Day— time to really get your creative juices flowing and unleash your inner artist! In honor of the day, I wanted to share this page from my Hobonichi, complete with this amazing stamp of Jack’s face from Paper Afternoon on Etsy. It’s one of my favorite crafting items right now. The lego stamps are also from the same shop and I love them because they are so unique and super super cute! I also had tons of fun using my stencil ruler to create little silhouettes and stars.
Sitting down this morning and drawing out some of my favorite things was super calming and a great way to start off the busy weekend. Doodling can be a great way to help you focus, bring a little extra creativity into your life, and brighten up your day.
Doodle Day isn’t just about making beautiful, random creations in the margins of books or notes in meetings. Although doodling can be an excellent way to organize your thoughts, pass the time, and focus on what’s going on around you. Here’s a quote from www.epilepsy.org that I really found powerful and inspiring:
“Doodles show what kind of people we are because we are free to doodle what and how we like, and we show our individuality through all the choices we make in life. Our clothes, friends, work and interests all say something about us, and so do the language and gestures we use. Doodling is an uninhibited form of self-expression.”
At this point, you might be wondering, what does doodling have to do with Epilepsy? Well, the whole purpose of Doodle Day is to raise support for Epilepsy Awareness. I don’t need much of an excuse to doodle, but who doesn’t love making random art for a good cause!?

Be sure to share pics of your doodles and let me know, how do you build creativity into your everyday?
