What is “Do The Doodle”™?
Do The Doodle™ is a 30 day creative expression journaling program that is fun, colorful, and connects you with your inner voice. All you need is a journal or notebook, some fun colors (markers, crayons, or pastels) and 5-10 minutes a day. We’re coming together and “coloring out loud” as we connect with our inner voices, reach for our dreams, and open our minds to creativity and new ideas.
One Doodle. *
Once a day.
It’s THAT easy! And it’s BEYOND fun!
* I should warn you that Doodling can become quite important as you begin to see how it relaxes you and centers your thoughts. Some days I go beyond the once a day challenge…I recently had a 4 Doodle Day! You’ll be amazed at the change in your body and mind after 5-10 minutes of Doodling *
I created the Doodle Challenge after I completed my Creatively Fit Coach Certification program. It all started HERE, as I met my”Artist Within”. I was not a “Doodler”. I didn’t draw (I told myself I couldn’t draw). But I felt like I need to get in touch with something inside so I made a committment to Doodle every day for 30 days. I began listening to the “voice” inside and letting it out inside my Doodle Journal.
The Doodle not only helped me find my voice, but it gave me the courage to share it! Not something that comes easy to me. It was like art and voice lessons combined! That’s why I call it “Coloring Out Loud”™.
And, that story of “I can’t draw”…doesn’t exist any more! And that “weakness” I felt in my “voice”. Well, it’s getting stronger every day.
I CAN draw. I have something to SAY!
The point isn’t that I can draw, though.
What’s important is that it showed me there are lots of stories I tell myself that aren’t true.
The “CANT’S” are becoming “CAN’S” and I’m making changes in my life! I feel stronger and more in touch with who I am and have connected to that voice inside…and out.
This isn’t an art class.
I’m not going to “teach you” how to be an artist. I’m going to take a journey WITH you into your right brain, creative, inner voice and we’re going to see what it has to say. AND, what happens when you start communicating with it inside and OUT of your Doodle Journal! THAT’s where the FUN really begins.
So let’s get started and get on with Coloring Out LOUD™!
Loving your Doodles. They are authentic and inspiring. Thanks for having the courage to be uniquely and bravely YOU. ~Lori Fields…New York, NY…Coach
The doodling is definitely a wake-up call for my ME. WOW. It’s helped me break out of the roles I’ve been so dutifully playing for over five decades. Finally, after all these years, I am connecting with my creative self again. Whole new images and styles seem to be emerging, and I had the courage to take a big step towards bringing creativity to business and maybe to the public after all. ~Ellen Koronet…Maryland…Owner LNK Creative
This has been freeing me up and I am even showing these to my husband and I think he knows that I am loving bringing my artist out again. ~Elizabeth Cassidy…New York…Writer and Creativity Coach

Why Should I Do The Doodle™?
~ You are ready to do something different in your life. Step out of your routine. Stop saying “I can’t”. Make a change.
~ You are a “morning page” person. The Doodle combined with morning pages is a fun and revealing experience. You’re still expressing, but you’re doing it through color and creativity.
~ You love color. You love art. Maybe you have pushed your artistic creativity aside for too long and are ready to renew your relationship with it.
~ You want to get more in touch with your inner voice or intuition. This is why I call it “coloring out loud”. You’re speaking through your creativity and it’s coming from a place within. From your right brain…who MIGHT be a stranger to you initially.
~ You are trying to find or heal your “voice”. This was me! I’m learning to express myself through color and creativity. Yes, it was scary at first. I was nervous to post my Doodles and my expressions! But, it’s been so fun!
~ Summer Is Here…The Kids Are Out of School…While they color…YOU COLOR! Begin a daily creativity routine for you AND your family! Consider your Doodle Journal your “coloring book”. Take a break and join the little ones as they play and color and let your voice out to play. You might even decide to show your kids how to Color Out Loud™ and give them a lifelong gift of creativity, connection, and expression.
I actually use the Doodle to get my morning pages started…seems to take me to a thought path quicker or perhaps just more clearer. In any case, combinging the two is really powerful. ~Zan Packard…San Francisco, CA…Writer

Besides being downright fun, it’s truly an exercise in courage. I refused to share my first doodles, but now I don’t care about whether they are “good” or not. Fear is not a factor. My perception of my accomplishments and what is worth celebrating and sharing has shifted dramatically. Thanks melissaAnne for this transformational work. And thanks Carin Channing for posting your doodles. ~Valerie Cline…Austin, TX…Writer, Entrepreneur, Mom
What Do I Need To Do The Doodle™?
It’s so EASY! A notebook or journal. Lined, unlined…it really doesn’t matter, this is for YOU! Do what feels right for you. Go all out artsy and buy a sketch pad at your local art store if you want to make it really special. Go BIG or go small so you can carry it around with you and Doodle when you feel the need.
You can use any kind of colors to create your Doodles: pens, markers, colored pencils, pastels…even your iPad or other device. Whatever works for you and is available!
Again, this isn’t about becoming a world class artist…but if you do (and we have Doodlers selling their art now!), AWESOME (and don’t forget me!!)…
Here’s a sneak peek inside my first Doodle Journal. I LOVE color!! My first journal was small (only 5″ x 5″) and transportable so I could Doodle on the road, on the subway, in the park…wherever!
Most of my Doodles are done with pastels (I’m a pastels junkie these days…) or colored pencils or a combination of the two. There are no rules here!
I’m a very organized, planned person who works hard and has trouble letting my mind rest sometimes. My husband has encouraged me to have a creative outlet for years but I’ve feared “art”.I decided to take the 30 day challenge because it was only 30 days, it wasn’t a large investment of time or money. I’m so glad that I did. Once, I worked through the fear and let go into doodling, I found healing moments, relaxation, and support and insights from the group. Now, I look forward to my daily doodle and miss it when I don’t. The group encouraged me without judgement and I look forward to the daily conversations with the group. ~Melanie Rivers…Vancouver, British Columbia
