I recently found my childhood copy of Sleeping Beauty, and noticed something new:

When the princess pricks her finger on the spindle, she's destined to fall asleep for 100 years.  I'm not sure what the prince's kiss had to do with her waking up, just a coincidence?

Perhaps it was the moon that let her know 1200 months had passed with this moonlight kiss...

Also, I received a deck of "Tangle Cards" as a gift, and discovered a plethora of new patterns to play with; Sleeping Beauty's bed chamber gave me a great excuse!  If you like playing with patterns, definitely try out the "Tangle Cards!"

Read what "the Scribblers" wrote, and find out which songs the "Doodle-Song Sommeliers" paired this doodle with here. There are some really beautiful stories, poems, and thoughts shared for this one!
