Count Your Blessings

I was blessed with a longer nap break so I took out the white ink to play on some simple black paper. It’s so nice how simple pleasures like a blank piece of paper (black OR white) can be such a blessing.

  • I’m blessed & VERY grateful for baby naps (no matter how rare or random) and time to feed my creative spirit
  • I’m blessed to have these moments of play
  • I’m blessed & grateful for all the love, encouragement (and likes) on Instagram and Facebook for this Lentoodle project
  • I’m blessed with lots of ideas to experiment with doodles, ink and paper
  • I’m blessed with an amazing husband and cheeky bubba (sometimes she even naps for a couple of hours!!)
  • I’m blessed to have this space to share my doodle artwork, to inspire your day

Forgiveness was on my mind, not just of others, but of ourselves. Sometimes, we are our own harshest critics, no?

The theme of forgiveness continued on Day 31

surely goodness and mercy shall fooollloooww meeeee,
all the days, all the days of my liii-iiffee

Over and over.
I kept singing it to Indigo so many times I knew I had to doodle it out of my head so my mind could move on!

Love never fails

Love Never Fails Sketch ©Brenda Mangalore/Sashé Studio

  Sometimes life is a bit intense Sometimes people are just too much. Too insensitive. Too ignorant. Too selfish. Too focused on the details when the bigger picture is all wrong Sometimes I’m one of those people Sometimes just laying in bed and letting life pass by seems to be the only way forward Sometimes [...]
