The best ideas come unexpectedly from a conversation or a common activity like watering the garden. These can get lost or slip away if not acted on when they occur.

I love unexpected ideas. Now I have keep a small sketch journal in my purse, by the bed, and of course – in my “studio”.
I posted a new ATC that I hope becomes the beginnings of a series.

i keep journals in all those places too!!

Today I finished the altered LP (I added snow). Now just have to paint the back a solid color and adhere a serrated hanger and it is ready to hang.

Also made a couple of ATCs.

Thanks so much for doing more of this AED

I have a journal in my purse; I need to keep one by my bed! I have so many cool ideas during the night that have flown the coop by the morning!

I am looking forward to even more creativity. Its a good thing!

This time of year you feel that you have a million things going on at once. I posted a few of those million projects that I am currently working on… Wish me luck in completing them on time…eeeekkkkkkk

I lie in bed and email myself on my Blackberry!
A journal would be better!…maybe faster too since I could sketch what I was thinking of and not have to write and describe it…typing on a BB is a pain!

Had a nice day today finishing my Christmas cards – just the few I have made to send to family and a very few friends…tonight during dog walk with hubby I will have a stack of things to mail…I love that feeling!

I’m a collector of unexpected ideas and happy accidents.

ooooohhh so much happening lately!!! my brain is spilling open and so many ideas that have been marinating are now starting to take physical form!!!

i’ve been obsessing with making soul cards (also known as vision cards)

and my new affirmation card for this mantra monday

oh and julia from the red otter will be posting my self-portrait photo tomorrow!!!

hoping you are having a beautiful monday

having major health upheavals right now but am creating art within them…an interesting and healing process(I am hoping!)

many blessings all….

I’m finally back! Good to see everyone! :0) This week’s quote is so true. And it’s something I’m just learning to tap into. Hope everyone has a serene and creative week! Hugs, Louisa

I am ready to make some more journal pages!!

Hi Leah,
I would love to join your CED 2009.I really enjoy your blog and keep up the good work. You inspire us all! Count me in!
Thank you,

My brain is crowded with ideas, but mostly what has been coming out is gift making.

I have been having fun with an online group writing project. There are about a dozen of us and we’re up to around 1700 words in the month of December.

Writing a story (novel?) with a bunch of others is quite an exercise in releasing control.

Here’s finishing up my last bits from Art Every Day Month (since I started late I’m finishing late).

I think however I shall join in with this weekly widget thing. I’ve become accustomed to hanging out here and seeing what everyone else is doing!

It true (as I remarked at my blog): it takes three weeks to make (or break) a habit. After participating in Art Every Day Month, even though it was hard going in the beginning, I’m now in the habit of making art, well if not every day, at least much more often than I was.

I had some things come up in my life which meant I didn’t get to do any art for a week or so, but because of the habit I got into from AEDM I found myself itching, really itching, to get back to it. Which hasn’t been the case for some time. So thank you Leah, very very much.

I love this idea. By signing up it is a wonderful reminder of how important it is to create every day!!! Thanks

I like this week’s quote – so true! I’ve had some of my favorite paintings come to me when I was doing the most mundane things – and I do lose them if I don’t get to them quickly. Others, though, seem to come from deeper inside, and they take months to take shape and finally get on the page. Like the one I’ve linked to above.

I wish to participate in the Challenge 2009.

I would like to participate in this Challenge. I have put the button on my sidebar on my blog.

Thank you!
Happy New Year and Artful Blessings,
