Art Every Day Month, November 12th

November 12th, 2008

Today is the 12th day of Art Every Day Month! We're nearly half-way through the month. Can you believe it?

The box below is a widget that I provide each day as an optional place to share a direct link (blog post or flickr image) about that day's creation. If you don't have something to share today, don't worry about it! Share when you can. In the meantime, be sure to check out what other folks whipping up! Check out the links from today's post, the previous week's posts and the links in the sidebar for instant inspiration. You can also see lots of great work in the AEDM flickr group. Feel free to share your work there too!

If you use the widget, please link to a specific blog post (or specific image if you're linking to a flickr page or other website) instead of your main blog page or website. If you want to share, but don't have a specific page to link to, feel free to use the comments section of this post to share what you're working on. If you're posting less than once a day, no problem! Simply use the latest one of these posts to share a link to your creation! For some, it's too much to keep up with posting every day, but don't let that get you down. Do it if you can and if you can't, just keep on creating, that's the most important part. If you get off track and miss a few days of creating, don't let that freeze you up either. Just pick up where you left off and keep moving forward. One foot in front of the other. You are making your life a more creative one with each step.

If you're new to Art Every Day Month, check out the before you use the link widget to share your creations.

Knowing the elements and principles of design is important, but if we don't put our heart and our passion in our work, we cannot expect to stir anyone else's heart or passion.
-Carole D. Barnes, quoted in Celebrate Your Creative Self by Mary Todd Beam

our work reflects our feelings.

Although I wasn’t creating “art” while I was gone, I was creative.

I spent time at my sister’s house refreshing my inner self and being creative playing games and strengthening our bond.

The words in today’s quote made me think of how I have been focusing on opening my heart more and more each day. I loved this part of the quote: “if we don’t put our heart and our passion in our work, we cannot expect to stir anyone else’s heart or passion.”

Today’s quote spoke to my heart….thank you Leah!

Lost a little momentum today. Looking forward to finding it again tomorrow. ;)

Still going…. I’m so appreciative of the camaraderie! Thanks, everyone!

I keep forgetting to post! I am still on my everyday role but really scrounging around for some new ideas..thanks to all who checked out my site.

I think in this world today, another thing that should be said is to respect the art. respect the audience. We spend too much time nowadays looking for ways to be pessimistic and snarky. To really commit to art without holding back out of fear of what others will think… it’s important.

I finally got a post up.
Thanks for the quote.

Crap… I keep forgetting to link to the specific post rather than my blog in general. Oops. Today I am trying to complete unfinished projects. I have one more that I’d like to put the finishing touches on. Let’s see if I can get it done (fingers crossed). I hate that I never know the correct place to put a period if your sentence ends with parentheses. Can anyone help me out… ~Sara

I couldn’t wait to get home from work to start creating…love it!

Ugh. This is so *hard.*

yes, thank you for the quote. what a great reminder to stay focused on the art that speaks from your soul and not on what you think others would like to see. thanks for the inspiration Leah!

Finally, I’ve posted again after nearly a week. I’ve been “arting”, but not blogging. Sorry.
