" Hello, my name is Laurie.   I'm just a regular Joe crafter.  While trying to
find digital images that met my own crafting needs, I decided to draw some
of my own, as I had so many unique (weird!) ideas that I just couldn't
locate elsewhere.   I sincerely hope something I've done inspires you to go
create something to bring a smile to someone else and hope you enjoy
creating to your hearts content with some of my doodles.". ~Laurie

Now here's some wonderful inspiration from our very talented design team using images from Doodle Pantry.
