Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 26

November 26th, 2010


Welcome the 26th day of Art Every Day Month. As I recover from a day of eating, I'm going to enjoy fitting some creative play time in while spending time with family. I hope you all have a beautiful Friday!

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) to 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 participants are creating! Check out the links from today's post and the links on the participant page 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, not your main blog page or website (or you can link to a specific image if you're linking to a flickr page.) For example, for day one I would link to my first post: instead of my main blog page: This makes it easier for people to find your work.  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.

How to participate in Art Every Day Month: Check out the AEDM info page for all the details, instructions on how to get involved, and then visit the participants page to sign-up before you use the link widget to share your creations. The Information page also has instructions about how to use the widget below, if you're having any trouble with it.

Survival Guide: If you feel like you could use some more support, prompts, and motivation to keep going throughout the month, check out the Art Every Day Month Survival Guide.

Twitter: If you're on Twitter (I'm on there as @leah_art), I've been using the hashtag #aedm2010 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Creative Every Day Challenge participants: If you're not doing Art Every Day Month, you can still use any of the daily Art Every Day Month check-in posts to leave your weekly link.

I spent all day trying to work but I ended up doing some doodles instead :-)

I feel peaceful inside when I draw something.

Have a lovely day with your family! {happy waves}

Mostly today’s post if about Family, since that’s about as creative as any of us get. But I also included a picture of ceramic focals drying for the artsy part. How about those mashed potatoes Leah? Did you get enough? We had enough to send home with Daughter – it’s traditional to have leftovers for potato pancakes! (mmmm – and yes, we did have them this a.m.)

I had a very artsy day yesterday! I hope it’s OK that I posted two links to two different projects — the second of which came into being late at night after I’d already posted the first. The collage was influenced by your work I’m sure, Leah, though not one piece specifically that I know of. Anyway, folks — if you get a chance, please drop by and offer any words of wisdom :)

After yesterday, I’m ready for a relaxing day of leftovers and crocheting!

I’m too tired to sit up for long at the computer, so spending time reading, crocheting and napping.
Stay inspired!

hi leah, hope you had a great thanksgiving! i skipped posting yesterday but followed up with a double doodle today!

Because of the holiday, and not having alone time until next Tuesday, I feel like I’m on vaca mode. So, I think I’ll be finishing the challenge out with photographs, instead of painting. Today I posted some Polaroids of cows.

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Today’s project is a pop-up card. I challenged myself to fit as many butterflies as possible in a 6″x4″ card – managed 19.

I drew a cheerful mandala before everyone else awoke this morning;

I had left over yarn from a project I finished earlier this week, and made a scarf for my daughter.

Oh, and the wrong link is on #51. It is at #52. oops!
