After a few challenges today I needed to chill. I think better if my hands are busy, so out came markers.

I had forgotten how quickly doodling clears my mind.  As kid I was always scribbling. Sometime in my 20s that faded away. I have tried to keep an art journal over the years, but after a few pages every sketchbook becomes a paperweight.

Apparently I just needed something more substantial - like a paper mache' skull. And just in time for Halloween too.

By the way, I'm still taking entries for 2 random drawings. Click links for more info:


  1. And in time for Dia De Los Muertos!

    That's super cool! Where does one find a paper mache skull?

  2. Thanks Bex! I picked this up last year a Michael's Craft Store. I think they have them again this year

  3. Creepy and fun! I love it, Stacey! You could sell that in your Etsy shop easily, especially with Halloween coming up! Doodle therapy is a great name for it, too. xoxo

  4. Very cool!! I doodle a lot too!!
    Love the skull!

  5. That is pretty cool! I think I'll have to go look for one to draw on.

    Someone told me recently that coloring & doodling is supposed to be therapeutic. Well, duh.

  6. I love it! It's certainly one of a kind. Doodling is great therapy, but I never thought of doing on a skull!
