I think I’m on my 7th moleskine! There’s just something extremely predictable about those books with that watercolor paper. I’m hooked!
It’s been suggested that I start doodling/drawing in Photoshop….you know, open up the blank page, grab my wacom tablet pen and start doodling away. I however, do not find that relaxing one bit. I like the feel of the pens on the paper. Photoshop is mighty crisp and extremely detailed. But not as convenient as my moleskine….How can you beat ”grab and go”? No need to remember a second battery, very light-weight compared to the 16 pounds that a laptop can pack.
However, I do think I should do some “creating” in photoshop. It is the way of the future. And I did hear that there is a photoshop app for ipads. I’d be interested in that. But please, don’t make me carry a laptop around. Sorry, I know a lot of people love them. But I’ll take my desktop over a laptop any day. More bang for the buck, too.
I wonder if drawing in photoshop is a mental hurdle that I need to get over? Do any of you draw in photoshop? What are your thoughts on this photoshop issue?

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
