I was a doodler.

Place a paper and pen or pencil in front of me and I will start drawing random things on it. Flowers, smiley faces, zigzag going up or down, lots of activity! All this went on while I was either having a conversation on phone or was studying. The doodles ended up on my books too.

Then things changed. No more landline phones where you had to be in one place and talk. With the convenience of a cordless phone and later on cell phones, I learned to walk when I talked. No more doodling for me.

When I got an iPad, I tried to draw on it but wasn’t very successful. My grandson however was very good at it.

  1. Sadje, you hit the nail on the head! I had wondered why my notebooks contained valid notes instead of the doodles of yesteryear!
    Thank you, so much for linking these doodles and thoughts to our Wednesday challenge. πŸ™‚

  2. I’m addicted to doodling. I attend meetings but can’t concentrate if I’m not doodling on the diary. On the maths book suppose square was there then I was making square face man with moustache πŸ˜€

  3. I used to love to doodle. I would make sketches of the clothes I wanted to design. Now, computers have replaced my doodling. I use a program called Sketch and created several sketches of landscapes, etc. I haven’t used it in a while but the other day I found my sketches and considering reviving them.

  4. I love doodling ❀ and was doing this at the weekend, while writing my to do list. I also doodle when I’m on the phone and need to write notes, but doodle throughout the conversation. My son also does it alongside school work, it’s so fun. I love his little creations.
