Card Decks Coming! Exciting News!
It has been quite the journey, bringing to life this first deck of cards. Exhilarating, exciting, stressful, amazing, and plenty of opportunities to navigate a slew of road bumps. Mostly, I have needed to keep the faith. Faith in myself. To know I could achieve it.
My doodle passion re-emerged last year. My favorite brother, ok my only brother : ) was going through rather steep challenges in his life. He lives half way across the world and I couldn't just pop in and visit, or take him to lunch or a movie to cheer him up. I started sending him cards every week and would add a drawing, or doodle, to show him some love. Weeks became months and I looked forward to the time spent drawing for him.
Along the way, I discovered that the more I doodled, the more ideas poured in from every direction—including creating and designing a deck of cards. I jumped on it whole heartedly and the first creation from Doodlisms was born. A happy baby, with bright eyes, and dimpled cheeks.
We're fast moving beyond the first test print run, or kindergarten, and enjoying high school. Next is college, then the world ; ) What a ride, and we've only just begun.
My dearest wish for you, is that these cards, with each bright little critter, give you a big heart-opening cheerful grin—just as they do for me.
I look forward to bringing you lots more cheerful creativity!
