Doodling is productive!

I started doodling yesterday- trying to rev up the engine with daily drawing. This is what came out. It's not too shabby. I'm working on place- will work on the window/oriental carpet/sconce. Want to work on lighting too - this is at night - with only the moonlight and a candle and a gaslight. I'm excited to color it up.

I was thinking about our upcoming camp out with the Mother/daughter group. We're 6 moms and six girls who've known eachother since the girl's were babies and we all attended a new Mother's group. Now the girls are 8/9. Last year they stayed up late, telling spooky stories in their tent, and we stayed up late listening from our tent.

So- I was thinking about that and how important books are to these girls- they have regular book swaps. Then I thought about how books were IT. No t.v., no computer, no i pods, no Wii . Imagine the impact they had. I wish I could go back in time.
