Creative Every Day Check-In: May 9 – 15

May 9th, 2011

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

Join in the Challenge: Read all the details and sign up for the  2011 Creative Every Day Challenge here!

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 5/9/11 - 5/15/11.

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, you can use the hashtag  #CED2011 to help others find your Creative Every Day tweets!

Theme: The (totally optional) theme for May is Big.You can read more about the theme and some ideas to get you started here.

Happy Creating!

We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee. ~Marian Wright Edelman

This week has been creatively scarce, thanks to getting more hours at work, but I did do a lot of blog writing and a little creative writing as well. Check out the blog!

i haven’t opened up the studio for the warmer seasons… but oh so soon, and still managing creativity every day.

Yesterday I wrote about the spiritual and political roots of mother’s day, and the importance of honouring the mothering qualities and voice within all of us.

What could be bigger or greater than the possibility of hope? You can read all about it here:

I turned a top into a tote this week — easy-peasy and kinda cute :)

BTW — Congratulations on the arrival of your sweet little one, Leah!!!!

I am having a blast in the Dirty Footprints Studio 21 Secrets Workshops with Connie Hozvicka, and am HAPPILY creating every day. I posted 4 new posts yesterday of some of the projects I finished over the last few days.

Congratulations on your new daughter, Leah! :)

Just doing some sketches lately but I’m involved in an all woman show for the month of May so my art is out there in the big world!

It was a slow art week for me. Lots of processing and not much doing, but I have some ideas brewing again, so all is not lost! I’ve been working to consolidate my photos on one blog, so I have a different link this week, and some new stuff to see there.

I’ve been sketching every day. A couple comments on last weeks post about having a creative practice have me wondering what a creative practice would look like for someone whose creativity does not lie in what we usually think of as arts. I totally see creativity in areas like data management, tech work etc. But those are not my areas really and I’m not sure what would feel creative to a “tech” person…

Seems like I haven’t been here forever. Wishing everyone a creative week.
Stay inspired!

The temperature is rising here. 100 today. Looking forward to spending lots of time in my air conditioned studio every afternoon. Now. Terah

I’ve been trying out new styles, mediums, and I even made a bag from re-cycled clothing in past week! Oh and eating sourdough bread in the sun to warm up (almost our winter here), but that’ll only make my hips bigger I guess! Lots of creativity here – have a great week.

You wanna see big? Read my posts for May. I was in Colorado last week and there are some big mountains in “them thar hills!”


Mostly ignoring the “Big” theme, I took more garden photos. Pretty irresistible in Spring.

Beautiful little one, Leah! Congratulations.

Kitty cat masks!!

BIG is the perfect theme for me this month. I’m preparing the YES project installation displays and they are BIG 2×8 feet. I’ve decided I absolutely LOVE painting big and I love painting on wood.

Thanks Leah and congratulations on your new baby. Love and blessings to your family!

Two new posts on Beloved Divine this week. The first ones for the month of May. I’m happy to say that I don’t always have time to Blog because I am so happily creating. ART ART ART!
And I’ll have to say that the theme of BIG is right on target for me. Putting myself out there in a bigger way in my life than I am used to doing.

And also my session of BIG with Connie (Last week’s Guest post) just finished. And I put a few of my BIG paintings up.

Glad to be sharing with so many supportive creative peeps!

And a big Congrats to the proud parents….what a big juicy life!!

I’m making more paper dolls/altar egos and wondering if anyone had any suggestions for new personas that a creative person might want to see come to life. I have so far The Writer, The Diva Airstream (retro barbie homemaker type) and I’m working on The Painter. Any ideas?

I signed up recently. I have not blogged much but I would like to take this challenge and get to know all of you. Thanks, Susan

Living the time of my life. Big time.

I wrote about it and rehabilitated Doubt as a life-saving mechanism for life choices. Check.
