I have been trying my best to work on and repeat this mantra to myself. I don’t remember where I heard it, but ever since we decided to move from Minneapolis to Chicago I’ve been thinking this over and over again. It’s a scary thing moving away from family and friends and out of your comfort zone. Chicago is a big place and I’m a small town girl-it’s hard to imagine that we’ll be able to harmoniously mix. I have a tendency to worry and dwell on what could happen. I’ve always been a “what if” person and it’s hard to change that when it comes to such a big adjustment. Every time I start to think about all the bad “what-ifs” I just try to remind and tell myself off all the good that can come from moving out of your comfort zone. I think about all the opportunities in a big city like Chicago. I think about all the new crafty friends I will meet and all the new experiences that Tucker and I will have together. Sigh…Thanks for listening to this little rant of mine. The time to move is coming up quick and I’m just trying to make it! Do you remember when you had to go out of your comfort zone? What helped you get through the hard times?

Hello everyone! Accept my apology for my slight hiatus, traveling to Chicago was great but now it’s time to get back into the swing of things! I’ll jumpstart getting back into the groove by posting my doodle diary of my time in Chicago! Sometimes doodling is so much more fun than just writing down what I experienced. I can’t wait to go back to Chicago in June to find an apartment and check out everything I didn’t get a chance to see!
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.
