doodle happiness



i liken this to....noticing the "nutritional facts" listed on the bag of chocolate chips, and realizing that the calorie content isn't as bad as you thought it was.....coming across hidden treasure at a flea market......receiving flowers for no reason.....discovering an extra twenty dollars in your wallet.......bumping into a good friend that you haven't seen for a while.....learning that your favorite movie is on tv, and you actually have time to sit down and watch it.....finding out that today is actually friday, when you thought it was thursday....which means that it's the start of the weekend! i hope yours is filled with lots of unexpected, fabulous surprises!

artwork finished with micron pens and watercolor pencils on hand-painted paste papers.

Love all of those surprises. . . especially that onion ring. One nice surprise for me today would to have my hubby get home before the repair man gets here.

Thanks for the happy thoughts. Have a happy weekend.

Oh Lori,
I love your sense of humor!
I had to laugh when I read the
art created.
Great kick off for Friday!
Hugs, Darlene

Yes, I do love onion rings and yes, I recently found $5 in my jacket pocket and I didn't know it was there. Additions to the list: winning a giveaway, receiving an unexpected snail mail letter from someone you like, and having your work appreciated by your
child(ren).

Well, I got a good giggle out of this one! I'm sitting here with the most adorable kissable face I have seen in a long long time---Baby Marc!

I just love this saying...is it yours??? Love it!! It says it all! Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog. Now that garden season is over, I will be spending a lot of time in my studio while the snow flies...can't wait!!! Have a lovely weekend. We are suppose to get a hard freeze and our first snow fall.

So true. Love the art work.

A lively, creative and uplifting page for sure!

Veronica said...

I love those things!

Thinking Friday is Thursday is one better than thinking Thursday is Wednesday, which you wouldn't believe, I actually did this week. Still it was quite good to realise there was only one more day until the weekend instead of two. :)

I do so love your handwriting. I wish I could write like that. Did it just come naturally, or did you learn those handwritten fonts from somewhere?

Pat said...

I love the way your mind works. :)

presious said...

I love all of those. We've all have had those moments and they are so great. Love the one about the $20 in the pocket and the friday :). I'm still working on watching my favorite movie "straight" through,without interruptions...lol!
