The Little Things In Life

Some days I just doodle!
There are times when I am preoccupied so I just doodle, especially when I am on the phone. I feel I just want to be productive so I would just play, a sort of multi tasking. Even in the bathroom, doing your business, I feel I can't waste busy hands. Gotta read or doodle!

Sometimes even working on the backs of cash register receipts.

My almost 13 year old granddaughter has been here for a couple of days so we have been having a grand time with paper and scissors. Some of the folded pieces are the same, but with line drawings, they actually give it different illusions. What a fun way to spend the day, especially when it was raining.

Another little thing that gives me pleasure are to make and collect Plus size inchies with others. These are 1 1/2 " pieces of art. These are just some in my collection. I got 20 of them in the mail today! I now have 75 total, so one day I will make something with them. I have thoughts of either framing them or make a valance of them for my studio unless my muse hits me and decides something else. After working on large quilts, I find it's just the little things in life that just tickle me!

Deja Vue. Those doodles on the backs of cash register receipts look so much like the ones I'd do during faculty meetings (boooring). As the years went by, I'd bring more than a pencil. Towards the end I was using color pencils, markers,and gel pens. I'd use the doodles as a bribe to the hardest working student that day.

Love the doodles and the plus size inchies are so unique. You have quite a collection. I'm anxious to see what you do with them. I know it will be something creative and uniquely Wanda!
