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. See her Doodling with Strangers videos at youtube.com/doodlingwithstrangersfun. Connect further, find out about classes, and be encouraged by visiting www.doodleoutreach.com.

This is such a great book! We all take ourselves too seriously and this book is an exercise in relaxing, breathing, taking it easy...let you "inner child" out to play!! Leave it on your coffee table, guest room, along with a stack of "doodling paper", what a fun way to engage your family and friends!

Ms. Channing guides you through an entire leap year with ideas, or prompts as she calls them, for thinking about what you are doodling. She talks of "doodle-tunities" and I have begun to see how many "tunities" I have in my life. I was not a doodler before purchasing this book, but I am now. It's like having a diary in pictures: this is an entire year of therapy in a book. All I needed to add were my colored pencils!
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.

I have had the good fortune of working with Carin Channing directly. I had never previously taken doodling seriously and much to my surprise, it has ended up being an amazing pathway into creativity. It has helped me access a fuller aspect of my self; basic and playful.

This seeming pastime has actually turned out to be a great pathway to enhance personal development and grounding. Very highly recommended. This work is bound to surprise you. So doodle away! You'll like what you find.

I found this book to be delightful! I bought it based on the description that it might help me crack open my creativity a little and maybe even have some more profound self insights and expression I need. Upon reading the preface of the book that explains how to use the book, I felt immediately put at ease and comforted...I know that sounds odd, but her explanations are warm, inviting, and bring a nurturing sense of charm to this book that make it a safe place to start expressing or digging into one's self. I certainly wasn't looking for anything aside from just checking this book out and giving it a go...I find it to be something I want to keep with me and actually DO! The first few doodles were fun and I found myself stretching and drawing out more from myself than I thought I might have. I love that she gives simple prompts that are guides and the rest is up to me. I found myself getting immersed into the doodles and that it has a soothing therapeutic effect. For those us us in a stressful life and want a comforting break, this is it. I'm probably not explaining this well, and maybe it sounds weird, but this book is just what the heart doctor ordered. I am thankful for this fun, charming, and engaging trip into wherever my mind and heart want to take me! I never would have done this if not for trying out this book! If doodling seems non-essential, I assure you, for the non-artsy person who would benefit from a creative outlet, this is perfect.

With this book, Carin has found the balance between providing enough structure to encourage expression (the daily doodle prompts) but not so much structure that it holds you back. You can use the book any way you like - go in sequence or skip around, pick it up daily or just whenever, draw on the page or use your own paper - I have tried all of these, and used everything from oil pastels to a failing old pen. Doodling is great because the drawing is not supposed to be "good," and freed from that constraint, it is surprising what can come up. There are a lot of adult coloring books and doodling books, but this gentle encouragement of authentic self expression is unique in my experience.

Love this book! I have been following Carin Channing for a while now. So much fun to read the prompts and doodle away. This would make a great gift for anyone. Teachers could use it with their students. Parents and children. Anyone....So much fun.

Blast! I've had the privilege of meeting Carin and witnessing her childlike, dreamy passion for the doodle or rather the feelings it provokes makes me appreciate her book even more. My favorite is working on it when i go out to eat alone while waiting on food or after with a hot tea. Always sparks conversation and much more stimulating than my phone. Wish i'd thought of it.

What a refreshingly lovely way to decompress, destress and unlock a bit-o-creativity. In the process, I find myself stretching, ever so gently, into a place where I haven't been. It feels so good! Thank you for this. I love the daily ritual of it.
