Based on your vote, here’s a really quick doodlewash of a couple of my Christmas treasures I discovered under the tree this season. In gold, we have a #6 Escoda Reserva Travel Brush, since that’s the size I use most often and can now try it in sable. In silver, we have a Lamy Safari Al Star Graphite fountain pen (EF), which I’ve been doodling with all day and love! (I was so excited I even tried doodling Philippe, but he came out looking like a hardened criminal, because I was bored and frustrated half way in). Lastly, in red we have a Lindt chocolate that was actually from Philippe’s stocking, but I just threw it in for some more Christmas color.
Philippe and I had an amazing Christmas and I hope all of you celebrating it did as well! Turns out the gifts that were identical and in the same paper were similar but not the same at all. They were both Lego sets! Star Wars for me, and Jurassic World for Philippe. Honestly, opening gifts was so much fun that I still have to look around to be reminded what was actually inside. Also, there may have been wine after the champagne so the details of last night are a bit fuzzier than we intended.
After stockings this morning, I was a bit sad because now all the wonderful anticipation is over. On the bright side, I have Lego to play with so I will still be blatantly refusing to actually grow up. I guess if Christmas happened every day it just wouldn’t feel this special, so it’s all good in the end. Now comes the fight for how long I get to keep the tree and lights up past New Year’s Day. One year I made it to February, mostly out of laziness, until the neighbor almost called the police thinking we must be dead.
Happy holidays to all the wonderful folks who read my ramblings and an extra special thanks to all of my crazy talented fellow doodlewashers! Doodlewash.com just wouldn’t be the same without you. Much love to you all! Looking forward to a 2016 filled with lots more inspiration from the best little community of artists on the planet! Thank you my friends!
