In my strange head I sometimes use scrapbooking as the equivalent of doodling. When I need to think of ideas, work through something, or have a lot on my mind I find it easier to process when I’m doing something creative like doodling in class. They’ve only done a small study on it but it actually points to doodling as being good for your memory (I need all the help I can get).
Anyway - that’s what happened when I was creating these two layouts. Sort of something fun for half of my brain to do while the other half was processing/working.
