So I’ve been toying with the idea of doing embroidery patterns of my doodles recently.  It’s an interesting thing for me to think about because I become really attached to the things that I do and yet I would love the idea of someone stitching my design!  So I’m going to start testing the waters slowly by offering some free embroidery patterns here and then seeing how I feel about the whole process.  Anyhoo….here is my first pattern.  Just a cute lil’ jellyfish that I drew and then stitched up to show some color options, but go crazy with it!  Hope you enjoy!

No matter how busy my week is I love to doodle.  It’s something that doesn’t take a lot of energy and is still a great way to get the creative juices flowing when you are just bushed.  I’m going to start doing a post each week of a page of doodles from my work week.  If you are anything like me, I also thought for the longest time that I couldn’t draw to save my life.  Now, I don’t think I’m a fantastic visual artist, but doodling like this has given me the confidence in being able to create cute little drawings that I am happy with.  I hope you enjoy them.  Click on the photo to enlarge it and take a gander at my page more closely.  I hope this post inspires you to just pick up a pen and coloring pencils even on the days when you feel like you couldn’t possibly do anything crafty or creative.
