Doodling in January // Happy Friday

Two years ago in the summer I decided to take on a doodle challenge with mixed results. I'm not one that normally draws. I just haven never been very good at it, but I wanted to try something new in my bullet journal so I took it on. (Check out those posts here and here.) But as the year went on I decided that it wasn't going to continue. I lost my desire to struggle through each day and I just didn't try anymore.

It wasn't until April of last year that I decided to try again but I didn't even finish out the month. You can see my April bullet journal which includes my failed doodle challenge here.

But this year came around and I decided I wanted to give this whole doodling thing another go. So I started in January and it was again a mixed bag. There were days that I loved but then there were days that just make us laugh so hard.

It wasn't the easiest month to start doodling again because the theme was wintery animal (with the occasional non-wintery animal and of course there was one day that the thing to draw was wood). But I did my best and there were several that I was even quite proud of.


As you can probably tell there are are some that are definitely better than others. It's okay to laugh, we did many many times.

First let's start with my favorites.


I felt like I started out solid with my puffin on the first day. My moose and walrus were both pretty basic but I liked how they turned out. My St. Bernard is pretty cute. Rob regularly commented on how worried my puffin looked and how sad my St. Bernard was, but that's okay. I'm not great with eyes (as you can tell by the crazy blacked out eyes of the moose).


These were the worst of the pictures. The harp seal was the second day and I'll be honest I really wanted to give up after I drew him. It was awful but I kept going the next day so at least I had that going for me. The next one is an Alaskan Husky and he looks crazy. He's the kind of rabid dog that you just wouldn't want to run into it. The next is a Canadian Lynx. I just want to apologize to all Canadian Lynx now for drawing such demonic animal. I'm sure that's not at all what you guys look like. The last one is a Snow Leopard which every single time I look at it I have to look at my list because I have no idea what it is.


This last collection are pretty terrible and have made us laugh several times. The first one is supposed to be an Arctic Fox but Rob is quite convinced it's a corgi. Then you have a squid which looks a lot like a glove. And the last is a muskox which looks like a lot of giving up - but it all fairness it was the last time and I was just done with these silly animals.

But I made it. They weren't all great but I did it and I'm proud for finishing. And believing it or not I am doing the doodle challenge again in February. I will say that this month is definitely going better. I'm pretty pleased with how it's going so far actually, but it's still early in the month.

Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!
