Creative Every Day Check-In: March 22 – 28

March 22nd, 2010

This weekly check-in post is a place for Creative Every Day Challenge participants to share their creative activities.

Join in the Challenge: You can sign up for the  2010 Creative Every Day Challenge anytime! Find out more and fill out the sign-up form here to join in!

Ways to share: Once you've signed up, you can leave a comment on this post and/or use the "Mr. Linky" widget below to link to a blog post(s) about your creative activities during the days of 3/22/10 - 3/28/10.

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) or flickr image 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 unsure about how to use the widget, check out the "How to use the Mr. Linky widget" section on the Creative Every Day Challenge page. (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.) If the Mr. Linky widget is missing from this blog post, it's probably a problem with their server and it will come back as soon as it's fixed. You can always leave your link in the comments.

You can also take advantage of the great CED flickr group to post your images and see what others are up to. If you're on Twitter, there's a growing Twitter list of CED participants and you can use the hashtag #CED2010 to help others find your Creative Every Day tweets!

Theme: The (totally optional) theme for March is Stories. I'll be posting about the theme throughout the month and you can feel free to use it to inspire your creations, follow your own muse, or do some combination. You can find out more about this month's theme and some prompts to get you started with it here.

Winner: A big congrats to Angie J. who won the spot in Kathryn's workshop! Kathryn will be in touch shortly with the details.

Happy Creating!

I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you, and that you will work them, water them with your blood and tears and your laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom. -Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run with the Wolves

I love the story that is being told with the prompt you gave. It is fun to follow…

Wonderful week – full of exploring my creativity and also looking at stories and storytelling!

The theme of stories has been making me look at my photos in a new light. Very cool!

another heART journal page and exploring the creative connections we make online that are so *not* just virtual!

i am back from 15 days in turkey and egypt and 1 week recovering from jet lague and letting all of the amazingness of it sink in. this week i feel like i have a LOT of new inspiration to unleash on my creative projects.
i am studying mythology and archetypes and being very inspired by it! i’m going to start bringing some of these story elements into my art and journaling, and maybe my workshops.

enjoying the first four days of Spring, and had to put my social networking on the back burner for that time. Actually finding it refreshing, and working on things needed to be completed. Writing as well, and the big one: Spring Cleaning! It’s all good!

This is the story of two old dolls!

loving the sight of spring popping all around- bright flowers and blue skies! lots of photos, some atcs and general time enjoying the days….

thanks, Leah. i really enjoy having a theme and following your art and creativity as well as getting inspiration from all the others that post. it’s a gift!

my story this week is about contracting (drawing into the quiet reserve of myself) and expanding (reaching out past limitations with confidence and heart)…I’ve created a Creativity meditation about it this week! I love this idea of stories…I’m planning on working it more into my art! Thanks Leah!

The fairies have emerged! I have photographic proof :)

My daughter and I escaped into a magical world over the weekend….a nice way to pass a sunny, Saturday afternoon!

I seem to be all over in my creative method but the theme of stories is held lightly throughout. For example, I posted a photographic tribute to the oldest Chinatown in Canada (2nd oldest in North America)using a story format. For my week ahead, I want to paint and will write in the in between spaces. Thanks Leah as always for hosting this space. Terrill Welch

I’ve been exploring the interwoven threads of our life stories. And how memories frame our stories.

Stories help us understand our lives and ourselves. Heck I find story so important that my blog ‘Wright Story’ reflects this. Lol :-) Great theme, thanks Leah!

Happy creating to you all.

No stories for me… I do have a new lunch bag… and am in the process of making another. I went back to the fabric store and found I fabric that I liked much better than the first. I’m not in love with the bright paisley, but feel free to take a look and tell me what you think!

My lunch bag sort of reminds me of the childrens book, “If You Take a Mouse to School,” and how he wants a lunch box too.

I’m loving the springy weather and have been out walking and enjoying the happy birds.
I have done a spring flower collage (which I posted today), many drawings (that I enjoy colouring in with marker) and an altered page I will post soon.
Spring feels like a time of blossoming, bursting open and SO much a time of the visible results of creation.
I’m loving it :-)

It has been a while since I checked in. I have been though a bit of an ebb and dissatisfied with all I have been creating. Several things have come together to help turn the tide. One is the brightening weather, the second is a combination of the theme of stories, and starting a photo a day challenge.

Thank you as always for this challenge.

I have been learning to tell my stories by blogging. It is fun telling stories about everyday events and I find that taking creative baby steps is easier when I record them online.

I must have been inspired by the gorgeous weather we are having her in Southern California that I shed the clothes of my latest Zentangle model. LOL!

And since the theme this month is stories, as it has been said, “That’ my story (for March) and I’m stickin’ to it” *smiles*

Hi I’m a newbie. I live in New Zealand on a wonderful Island called Waiheke. I thought it would be fun to meet other people who do something creative every day. I have given myself a couple of years off to play with art and develop a business out of it! Big ask but I can do it. I put most of my art up on my blog. You might want to check it out. If anyone has a blogspot blog and would like to tell me how to do a few things on it – like pin the creative everyday logo on my site – I would be very grateful!

Had great fun in a cartooning illustration class today and posted the results on my blog… it was awesome!
