I've received such awesome feedback on the doodles and the project, and such great response by those of you who would like a doodle card, that I'm now trying to work out a system to make it a bit easier and to ensure that if someone wants one, they get one.
I held off doing this, worried that I was taking a simple little project too seriously, but hey, if I am going to give myself and these doodles more credit, what is the harm in digging in, in admitting how happy it makes me when you comment here or on Instagram, or when you tell me you want one of your own? What's the harm in putting it out there and asking the universe to give you a bit of space for a while to carve out something fun. And I know there's a chance that many days will go without those wanting the card, or will only be full of my own ideas (Murder, She Wrote doodles, anyone?), and that's okay. Life itself is a series of carvings in sand and stone, and I am choosing to take them all, and to dig in a bit more.
What I'm going to do is this: I have a list for the full 100 days. So far, I've jotted down everyone who's said, either here on on Instagram, that they want a doodle. I've not included anyone whose doodle I drew early. When I get a request, I will add it to the list. In a perfect world, these sheets are full of names and doodles, but even if it remains only as full as it is, that's okay, too.
It's about the making first, and the sharing is just a lovely extra.
What I need from you is this:
Leave a comment on the blog or Instagram that you'd like a doodle, or send me an email request. If you leave a comment, please follow that with and email that contains:
- Name + Address
- Username if it isn't your full name so I can match you up to your comment
- any doodle requests you may have ( I will try my best on all of them)
I will add you to the list as soon as I receive your comment/email, and when I get your mailing address, I will make a little check mark on the page.
If you don't have a doodle request and you'd like to take a chance with my ideas, that's great, too!
Thank you to all of you for cheering me on and requesting doodles!
