something other than stitching...

i don't consider myself to be much of an artist and i really have only been crafty for just over a year now, but i am a sucker for pens cause i am a serial doodler. for as long as i can remember i have aimlessly drawn all over things, creating intricate patterns along the way. as a teenager i think my gorgeous sisters even framed a few of them and hung them on their wall (or did i frame them and make them hang them up??). well the drawing bug grabbed me the other night after i had taken my middle child to a little boys birthday party. the gift bags, serviettes, plates and cups all had a monster design on them and i was inspired to draw my own. i might even make some monster softies too.
this is my growing collection of pens... and the 4 little gift tags i drew the other night.
here is the little monster i came up with, he is so cute!
this little gal was inspired by a design on a pair of pyjamas. the little bee in the corner is one of many stamps that float around this messy household :)
and these two come from the designs for my felt brooches.
and these tags will be attached to a little project i am working on...

    About the light - we get a sort of twilight from about 11.30 pm until 1 am - then it's light again. 2 or 3 in the morning looks like afternoon except everyone's gone and nothing is moving.

    Well I hope you're sitting there drawing right now! :-D
