Zen Doodling Christmas Ornaments and Other Inspirations

**Tuesday additional note: After all the weekend excitement I heard about Mr. Toast's Christmas Tea, I dropped by today (Tuesday) and discovered that his theme for Creative Tuesday this week is "Holidays" . My little efforts seemed so appropriate that I signed up! Please drop by Hot Toast and Jam and see all the great efforts!

*now back to my original post before I knew about that theme.....

I'm surprised.  I never thought that I would miss posting and checking-in on everyone everyday after the intense AEDM. I thought I'd be looking forward to the regular weekly check-ins. And I am. But I also find myself missing  the daily aspects too. Not sure why as weekly check-ins seemed so much more sane. 

Here is the rest of my week last week. For me, it's too early to think about Christmas before December but once the calendar turns, it is on my mind and so far, it is inspiring me daily.

Thursday:


 Friday:


Saturday:

Sunday:

I liked this one so much I decided to make it my holiday season header (for now). (Unfortunately I lost part of the image in the shadow of the gutter of my CED2010 book and my editing prowess was insufficient to improve it much.) 

I also worked more on my SBP (aka Sketchbook Project) this week. What about you? Was the rest of your week creative?

  13. what a treat to come here and peruse past postings of all your amazing drawings! i think you should sponsor a sketch-a-day challenge in the new year ... i know i am inspired to pull out my journal and get drawing!

    and i love the festive holiday look here :) your snow man should be a card! i admit, knowing you are also working on The Sketchbook Project makes me hang my head in shame to think how lively and rich your pages will be while I feel like I am just slogging through right now (oh, some of mine are wonderful, but many are being done to move it forward!)

    Warmest of wishes - I leave here re-inspired! Thank you for that!

    Happy Holidays.

  19. I like what you've done with the ZenDoodle ornaments. They sparkle and catch the light like real ornaments. And the snowman jazz concert is just fun!

  20. Snowmen playing the saxaphone are always cool in my book. I love your ornaments, especially the star.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I totally noticed the jazz snowman the second I came over here! He's so fun.

    Those ornaments are great. You should make them into ornaments for the tree somehow because they would look awesome hanging in a tree.

  26. Your snowman just made me smile. Wish I could have one in my garden but unfortunately, with the summer rain here in Aussieland, all I got are puddles of muddy water!

    Anyway, you enjoy and keep in winter! ;D

  28. These are beautiful -- I really like the use of colors and the way all those lines create so much detail!

  29. OMG! I love these zentangle ornaments! I just ordered a zentangle book for myself for Christmas. I can't wait to start learning. The snowman, by the way, looks like Bill Clinton playing the sax. :-)
