Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 27

November 27th, 2010


Welcome the 27th day of Art Every Day Month. I hope you have a beautifully creative weekend!

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 tried my hand at another of Carla Sonheim’s drawing labs — but didn’t like the results. But I’m hoping some of you will be able to pop over to see my “HOPE” collage from the day before — I’d love your feedback on how I could improve my lady. I feel like she’s not quite done.

I hope those of you who were celebrating Thanksgiving this week are enjoying a lovely rest!

It looks like I’m actually going to manage to pull off a post a day for this whole month, along with a ton of creativity. I had to break my guideline (notice I have changed it from “rule”) about not doing my “regular” work in clay and jewelry because *so much new stuff* was breaking through. I am paying attention. I am noting that focus makes a difference. Along with commitment and a total disregard for rules, um, guidelines. Thanks, Leah!

I’ve been working the last few days on this piece even though I missed posting about it :( The energy is flowing and I like how it came out, I’m really digging the freestyle look and how I can merge several different things I’ve done in the past into something new.

It truly is…

It’s all about the Possible

Today I’m doing a Live Paint demo locally which I’m excited about…but nervous! It’s a lot different doing what you love in the safety of your house, but doing it in front of others and wondering if they will get it or enjoy what you do…well, a little frightening all at the same time!

Have a great weekend!

I’ve been making new baby cards today. It is fun to spend time personalising something that is a celebration & gift.

I made a Chemo sweater…

Today my mom and I made Christmas ornaments!

[...] So while we were up for Thanksgiving, I took advantage of the location to do photo journals for Art Every Day Posts.   And you know what? It’s Day 27 and I haven’t missed once.  That takes discipline, [...]

mine was an “art all day”… i stood outside peddling my wares at an art show from 9 to 5! then came home and slept 12 hours :)
