Manic Monday Doodle

Dude! One thing this week’s theme has taught me is that I am not artistic in an artsy way. The entire time I was working on my doodle (and I’m embarrassed to say how long it actually took me), Georgia kept looking at it saying, “It’s a snowman!” I would say, “No, it’s a cat. Can’t you tell?” She would just look at me and give me the toddler eyeroll (Jeez, they learn that early) and say, “No, mama! It’s a snowman!”

So here is my snowman/cat.

Either way, this week’s Manic Monday is a Fundraiser to benefit Cat Friends Helping Friends. Morgen - the Manic Monday Founder, President and all around Awesome Dude – is holding a fundraiser this week. For every blog that posts a doodle of a cat (or in my case, cat/snowman), he will donate 50 cents to Cat Friends Helping Friends.

Now, there are so many other doodles around my house that I could have posted.

Like this one in the kitchen.

There were a couple of other lovely masterpieces - all ceated by my daughter Georgia - that I was going to post, but I couldn't get a good shot of them. Like the one in Eli's room. Or the one in the office all over the sliding glass door.

As you can see, I really need to do some painting or wallpapering around the house, but I’ve decided to wait until Georgia outgrows her love of non-washable markers. It may be awhile.

You did a great job on this kitty doodle. :)

Your other doodles are familiar doodles at my house. *LOL*
Happy Manic Monday.

I hope you had a beautiful Mother's Day.

Love the snowman kitty! But even more than that... Georgia's colorfully doodled mouth! I think anyone who has kids has a picture like this!

It doesn't pay to argue too much with a toddler, but it looks like a kitty to me.

Happy MM!
