Post-holiday Doldrumoid (as seen through a microscope.)


The beginning of the year renewal process never arrives without some minor inconveniences. This year is no different and the inconvenience comes in the form of a furry, horned, jingle-belled pest known as the Post-holiday Doldrumoid.

To find out more about this year’s unwelcome guest and pick up some helpful hints on how to cope with him and his kind, click this link and stop by the Doodle Diner… and pick up some delicious doodles whilst you’re there.



I belong to The Doodle Diner, a delightful group of talented artists. Above is a tribute to Eric Carle that I posted onto our collective blog.

Throughout the month of November, we at The Doodle Diner will be celebrating Eric Carle, one of our favorite children’s book author/illustrators, who has recently retired. In addition to our tribute we’d also like to invite all of you to join us by creating a piece of artwork, poem or share a favorite memory.
