About the Author
Carin Channing is a hands-on authority in rest and creativity encouragement. Her passion is helping everyone access these areas, not as hobbies but as necessities to living a life of inspiration, vision, and happiness. With a background in mental health therapy, Carin works with individuals, families, workplaces, and wider communities. She envisions bringing simple, introspective creativity to every person on the planet. She is the author of the book "365 Days of Doodling (Discovering the Joys of Being Creative Every Day)" (2015, Intentional Publishing). Forthcoming books include a tale of what happened when she intentionally trusted rest for a year and another primer, "Self-Loving 101." Always a writer, and a musician on the side, Carin discovered her love for doodling in her early 40s. Since then, she has taught resting and doodling to people all over the world and in 2015, she began doodling with strangers in Austin, Texas, where she lives, rests, and makes things.

I'm a pretty crafty person, and I'm happiest with a needle in my hands and some fabric, yarn, or floss to work with. And now I can include crayons and pencils and paper, too. I'm already looking forward to watercolors appearing in my future.
I love this book! I bought copies for each of my children also. And now I'm thinking that everyone I know should have a copy, too.
Unlike the coloring book craze, which can be "relaxing" but I also have found it's a bit "intimidating" (that whole "technique" and "get it right" thing), I love how it's impossible to be "wrong" while doodling.
And I've found it's super fun to doodle with other people! I love seeing the smiles on everyone's faces when we share our doodles and the stories behind them. I brought the book to my 82-year-old dad while he was in the hospital and we doodled the prompt about "something you wanted to be when you grew up". All these years and I didn't know he had dreamed of being an artist (wearing a beret!).
I've doodled with preschool and elementary kids too -- they don't understand every prompt (and "doodle your most recent kiss" gave my grandsons the giggles) but with 366 to choose from, we always find new ones to try. And now there is a new book by the author called "Doodle Book Junior: 101 Creative Prompts for KidsDoodle Book Junior: 101 Creative Prompts for Kids". (We all love the doodle ideas in that one too!)
Using the doodle prompts in this book, I've Skype-doodled with a group, doodled on the book pages, doodled in an app on my phone screen with my finger, even doodled on blank paper to personalize wrapping paper. Plus I love the "Doodle Outreach" group on Face book that the author created, because I get to see and share doodles with others, get inspired, and see how the doodle movement is growing.
I've bought this book for lots of friends and family. I bring it out at family gatherings and meet-ups with friends, and as an ice-breaker with new people. I even put a copy at my vacation rental house so that guests could have fun exploring their creativity and pin their doodles on the bulletin board for future guests to see.
It's an amazing book! I've had it for almost a year now and I love the inspiration for my personal doodles and for sharing with others.
If you know you need a daily dose of creativity, this is the book to get. It's easy, approachable, and takes 5 minutes each day. You'll love it.
If you don't think you need a creative outlet, get this book and you'll be surprised to discover things about yourself.
I've recommended it to friends, and I'm already getting this for as a gift for close ones.
PS: It *will* be hard to resist doodling on more than one prompt each day, trust me.
