Good, Bad and Ugly Doodling


I've got some new art photos on my phone that I have yet to unload, so today some older journal pages from last month. Lots of doodling-some I like, some I can only laugh at., and some that is just plain ugly.
But that's what this journal I keep is all about.  
Its been a busy week and I am ready for it to be the weekend. Between getting snow tires for my car which has turned into a 2 afternoon project, and last night my book club finally got back together again after almost 3 years.  Its was great to get back together again and enjoy some good talk, and I'm glad we are planning on meeting again. Since its been a cold, dark and snowy week, I'd love to be home making Christmas cookies and making some art and even cleaning my house a bit. But oh well, 2 more weeks until my holiday break,
Hope all is well with you
and you are surviving this holiday season with a smile.

I got a big kick out of your journal pages. They are fantastic. I especially love the bags of basement trash, because I can relate. These are wonderful. I hope you are in a great holiday mood, because mine is sadly missing!

I love these two pages to the max! It is so your life last month and I'm just amazed you had time to put anything down on paper at all!

Thanks for your visit to the Gypsy and all the kind words on the decorations, part 1! Hope you got your boxes out from underfoot by now! Day by day!

Super pages Erika, doodling must be a good way to relax on busy days.
I go to a book club once a month, not much chat about the book, but loads os chat about families, life and other stuff.

Great to see your journal. Every time I see one of your journal pages I think, must do this. I like "dig out the Xmas music", a good idea.

Love the doodly sketches! Hope your dh is doing well. Your renewal of the book club comes at a good time for you since there probably isn't much pressure there and it is a chance to unwind after all that you have been through lately. Maybe people would drive better if we had snow tires down here, but we just slide along with regular tires in central Virginia. Well, we don't really get that much snow. Just enough to let us know we really don't know how to drive in it, especially since snow plowing is a very iffy thing. Happy holidays to you and yours.

The title of your post made me smile Erika -
not sure where the bad and ugly was - I can only see Good.
I love this style of art journaling - quicker I would think when
there has been a lot happening and so much to say.
