Jenny Doh is a talented lady. She is an author/editor, but I think of her more as a curator. Why? Because when it comes to choosing exactly the right things to put a book together, this woman is a genius. (I'm honestly not just saying that because she's invited me to be part of a couple projects!) Craft-a-Doodle is the perfect example of Jenny's ability to craft a fantastic book.
This book contains 75 prompts for creating doodles...from simple and sweet to truly exquisite. Some of the artists I recognized immediately, while others I had never seen before. Each artist presents a collection of exercises to get you doodling, and I found it so much fun to try some different styles and techniques. You see...not only are there doodling suggestions, but there's also step by step instructions!
Lark Crafts sent me a copy to review, and from the moment it arrived, nearly ever person in my family started picking it up to flip through it. And as I looked through the pages and looked at my family looking through the pages, I thought...they need to help me out with this review!

If you love to doodle or are looking to plus up your doodles a bit, I would highly recommend checking out Craft-a-Doodle on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. This book has me thinking that I could actually create some doodles worthy of framing and gifting...and so can you!
