Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 28

November 28th, 2010


Welcome the 28th day of Art Every Day Month. We're getting so close to the end of the month! You're doing great!

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.

Despite my dismal showing in AEDM this year, I do love daily challenges. And knowing all the stuff I have to make/do/cook/create for the month of December for Christmas, I was wondering if anyone wanted to join me in a 25 Days of Christmas Creative challenge. Hopefully, everyday, I will be able to post a new Christmas project, homemade gift, activity, meal, etc. I’d love to see what other people are making for Christmas too. Plus I think it will help me stay on task with all my Christmas list goals.

I am so grateful for this yearly kick in the pants/pay attention/make a commitment. This month has been fantastic beyond my wildest imaginings! As always, I can’t say enough: Thanks Leah! (do run see the sea nettle ornaments/sun catchers. I am tickled pink with them!)

broke in the new studio last night! and got some art finished- come & check it out-

It’s hard to believe it is almost the end of the month Leah, it’s been a great way to end the year, basking in the creativity energy you’ve helped get moving!

Today I wrote and posted on my new work in progress that I did at a Live Paint demo :)

Perfectly Imperfect Inspiration>

Today, I’m going to try to finish my new birdie along with write up some class proposals, start a commission piece, haul out my decorations and maybe even clean the palace ;) Hope you all enjoy your Sunday!

I must say that I have enjoyed focusing on art this month and that Leah, your site is what got me going a couple of years ago and got me out of my slump of not being creative anymore for various reasons. Thank you Leah!

painted papertowels and hung them up to dry on my newly painted pegboard!

This weekend has been busy,fun and social. Today I started on a mandala doodle after dinner at a friends home whilst we drank tea and chatted. So my post shows my work in progress.

Hope you’ve all had a good weekend.

Kat :-)

What an incredible month it’s been Leah! Thanks to you and all the AEDM participants for your support.

I made a video using my new HD video camera. You can watch me paint Incognito – a girl hiding behind a masquerade mask. I’m going to go pass out now. lol
