Creative Every Day Challenge Check-In: December 1 – 13

December 7th, 2009

Ced2009Welcome, Creative Every Day Challenge participants! 

This weekly post is a place for CED participants to share their creative activities.

Ways to share: Leave a comment on this post and/or use the "Mr. Linky" widget below to link to a post (or posts) about your creative activities during the days of 12/1/09 - 12/13/09. Normally, this would be a check-in for one week, but because of Art Every Day Month ending on a Monday, this is the first check-in post, I've put up in December. Feel free to post links to posts from last week and this week here or you can just post blog address once.

The widget below is an optional method of sharing your creativity that makes it easier for others to check out what you're up to. You can use it to link to a blog post (or posts) during the week listed. Or if you have a bunch of posts and don't want to link to all of them, you can link to your main blog page once. Do it in a way that makes sense and is fun for you! (If you're reading this in a RSS reader or email subscription, you will not see the "Mr. Linky widget", so click on over to the blog to use it.)

You can also take advantage of the great CED flickr group to post your images and see what others are up to.

Join in the Challenge: To find out more about the Creative Every Day Challenge check out the details here. The 2010 Creative Every Day Challenge is starting up soon! Find out more and fill out the sign-up form here to join in!

Theme: The (totally optional) theme for December is recycle. I'll be posting about the theme throughout the month. You can find out more about how you can use the inspiration theme here.

Happy Creating!

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web. -Picasso

Good morning ladies! Wow, Dec. 7th already! Well, I’ve pretty much turned my studio into Santa’s workshop this past week (how’s that for recycling?) Was busy making a few things for a Christmas fair at church and then wrapping the gifts that I already bought…recycling last year’s bows and boxes too when I can lol! Hope I have time for some “real” art during the pre-holiday madness.

This month as part of recycling, I’m using the materials that I already have instead of buying new ones, which I so love to do, being the art supply addict that I am. I’m also painting over canvases that I had abandoned.

tried to recycle some old pieces yesterday without much success….. so instead i recycled some old maps, sheets music & ideas….happy holidays all!

this week i’m knitting myself a wrap out of beautiful sky-blue angora that my mom has had in her yarn stash for the last 30 years. this whole year i have been knitting up yarns that were already around instead of buying new but i am itching to get some new stuff, so i think i will do that soon.

I find myself wondering, “Is there a twitter tag?” I loved following everyone on twitter through tagging…. just a thought!!

Hi guys!

Julie, yes, I plan to start using #CED2010 as the Twitter tag next month.

I love recycling, I’m excited about this months theme! I tried out embossing the metal lids from food canisters, and it works really well.

I’m in the throws of crafting overdrive trying to get everything done for Yule. Happily I took a little time out to make myself a new tree ornament out of some trash!

What happened?!
It’s Dec 7, and I’ve posted once. I guess it’s my job and my child’s school work, other responsibilities interfering. But I remain creative :D

I am doing photos everyday this month.

posted a shot from my latest exhibit & hope to get more shots soon. I think I’ll get a little extra art time in since we’re in the middle of a snowstorm with blizzard conditions to come later today.

I’ve been working on my pink quilt.

I’m recycling by trying to use up art supplies and papers that I’ve had for years. They were expensive and I was afraid to “mess them up,” but not anymore. It’s either, have a blast messing them up while learning and practicing, or let age, bugs, mice, or whatever mess them up. I’m choose to use them freely. :)

The theme “Recycle” is inspiring!
I used a doodle made for the previous challenge (AED) and a piece of an already made pre-study from 2007 for another quilt.
The resulting journal quilts (8.5 x 11 inch) I submitted for the auction at the event “Colours Of Africa”, held on April 17 and 18 in Essen, Belgium. The money raised will be donated to the Chris Hani-crèche in Tulbagh, South Africa.

Hi, Leah and everyone. It’s been a few weeks since I blogged or posted a link. Too much happening and being sick got in the way. I finally posted today though. I have been thinking about the theme of “Recycle” a lot this month, and I have actually recycled some glass pieces I created last year by doing something different with them. I have been practicing my wire wrapping techniques and experimenting with glass painting, and you’ll see some of the results in my latest blog post. Also, when sending out orders I have had this month and last month too, I have recycled my packaging materials rather than going out and buying new boxes and bubble wrap, etc. I even used a box that was too big and cut it down to be a more appropriate size. Most likely some of the lovely wrapping paper that my holiday gifts come in will end up in my stash of collage material as well!

I’ve finished my pink quilt for the 12×12 challenge.
This week, I plan to work on Christmas cards and use up old painted papers I’ve been saving for some time.

Just a little post about St.Lucia, Thank you for all you hard work.
