inspiration monday


i've discovered that sometimes when i'm looking for inspiration,
it's nice to catch up with an old friend,  like my dover doodle book......






because on the pages inside, you can always create silly stories about new friends....
like tom, and his day at the museum:






(tom's silly story goes like this....)
"once upon a time, tom found something he liked
in the case at the museum."






"and it didn't take long before tom was in a
  glazed-over-eyes-must-have-choco-trance." 








"actually, it became an all-out choco-emergency."





later that day, tom had discovered the moral of the silly story:
"always be prepared"
(or in choco-terms,  always carry a hammer in your backpack.)
:))



{this silly story was created in my dover doodle book using micron pens,
derwent inktense pencils, and a 4B graphite pencil}

{you can find the dover doodle book here!}

I've had a few chocolate emergencies myself this week!
What's funny is that I almost purchased the book today at Barnes and Noble but passed because I was in a hurry. Ugh!

Gotta tell ya..I went in and ordered 3 of these - one for me and one each for my granddaughters 9 and 12 years old -( both live far from me ) and I'm going to tell them to complete them in their own story & words..then we'll all 3 compare! Fun huh? Thanks for the great tip!
