...I am an avid doodler. As a child such behavior was called play. As a teenager amoebas and flowers adorned my notebooks and I was called a daydreamer. As a young adult it may have been said that I was wasting time.
Now, at 41, I preempt any negative labeling by telling people I am a trained artist and I am creating charming, hand-colored, one of a kind, handmade stickers with custom backgrounds and high quality, top of the line, colored pencils ;-)
But in my heart...I'm still playing ;-)
