mini marche

My pal @mini.marche sent us the sweetest and most thoughtful surprise—a set of her handmade clips. I thought they were super cute in photographs, but they are absolutely beautiful in person! Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness, @mini.marche!  Avery was over the moon about them and is already planning the days that she’ll wear them. ☺️ Please check out Jeanette's shop on Etsy!

start creative studio doodle books

Every once in a while, it’s interesting to set some sort of restrictions or confines on a creative task.  This act can take your pen in a different direction.  This can be as simple as giving yourself a round piece of paper for drawing.  Because the shape is not what you’re used to, you’ll automatically produce something different than what you would normally do given a regular piece of paper.  If you were given a piece of graph paper, the grid might inspire you to draw something more geometric in nature with many corners or angles.  

Doodle books from Start Creative Studio are kind of like that.  Each page has a line, squiggle or shape that serves as a creative starter or prompt and inspires you to consider it and imagine how it initiates your drawing, or how it becomes a component of the thing you end up depicting.  The prompts in Doodle Books tap different aspects of creativity—maybe what you’re not used to (in a good way).  It’s great to switch things up every once in a while.  Something new and brilliant might just come of it.

Many thanks to Start Creative Studio for sending us some of their engaging doodle books!  All opinions stated are my own.
