Perhaps a Stocking

I've tried another idea for a Christmas card using a doodled stocking and I think I like it. I am also thinking I should try a wreath. Maybe later today I will. I have had some wonderful suggestions about using Photoshop to turn these doodles into stained glass looking creations. It is funny, but I was thinking of using colored Pitt pens to achieve a similar effect. I am not sure I am going to add color this year, but there are other holidays coming up so I could practice before then. Christmas is quickly closing in and I need to get these cards in the mail. I think making them on colored card stock is going to be my plan this year.

This morning I have routine fasting blood work, and then I am meeting my Statistics tutee at Panera's. We will probably work for about three hours. I think I will make my cards when I get home.

I'd better get the teeth brushed, decide on what to wear (I am in my favorite loungewear) and get a move on.

I hope to see you tomorrow!


  1. Your stocking is great too. After Christmas you can doodle for New Years, then Valentines Day, Sometimes I need to have a reason to do some creative work. I am trying to get over that but it's hard.

  2. Your doddling on your blog is AWESOME! it looks like ZENTAGLE.
