Time flies


7 Days….8 Nights…..v.a.c.a.t.i.o.n……I don’t really count the first day as a day because when you get to your destination after 10 hours car bound and after 6pm….then it’s not a day at play in my opinion.

Relaxed and Recharged with:
  • My Marker Stash (above)

  • My Journal
  • My walks beach-side, dock-side and for something chocolate-sided.
  • My water-time
  • My swing-time

My flickr buddy Sheila (Bostinstuff) does aMaZiNg doodles, and what’s so interesting about her work is that she will draw everything out first….and….then….color…it…in.   Not the way I do it, I’m not that good!  But since I had the time I thought I’d give it a shot.  Lots of benefits to working this way, because I can color it in any way I want digitally once I have the black & white jpg.

It was very slow going with my doodling, I must confess.


3 days later and I’d only gotten this far!

Once home I felt compelled to complete this.  Just something endearing about taking a break from routine, seriously!  It was somewhat of a digital-break too.  No wifi, only my phone!  Maybe that was the best thing about recharging!  However, I did watch a lot of shark-week.  Wouldn’t recommend doing THAT before your salt water swims though.

It all looks so relaxing. I love being near water, either the ocean or a river or lake. There's something about it that just makes me feel great.

Love the "M"....that's both my kids initials. All M's.

Eden, The doodle patterns in your letters are super fun and psychedelic! Love seeing your vacation pix!

Elizabeth said...

Beautiful!! Is there a way to download or purchase the letters?

I'd love to have some of the black and white ones to color.

Thank you,

About Me

My photo
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! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
