Creative Every Day Check-In: July 11 – 17

July 11th, 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 7/11//11 - 7/17/11.

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 July is Blue, which you can read more about and get ideas for here.

Happy Creating!


Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight. - John Ruskin

This week’s post is a a deeper reflection of my 10 days spent in the woods (5 of them alone), learning from Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt.


Stay inspired!

Just getting back into the swing of things, but I did a ton of knitting this week!

A little blue complimented by the beauty of sunrise viewed from a mountain top. Have a great week everybody…

More leopard print pillows this week. I have started a new project. A lap quilt called “Blue Hawaiian” Everyone have a wonderful week. Leah, kiss that little girl for me. xxoxo Terah

Loving working in blue this month.

Finally got my new poetry/prayer journal altered — and I love it! Next is to make a new tote bag to go with it :) (I used an old, well-loved dress on the book, and am going to use the rest for the tote.) I’ve also just signed up for my first art swap — journal pages/backgrounds. Such fun in store! :) So glad summer brings more freedom to play :)

had the opening reception of my show yesterday. am tired but happy it went well and even had some sales! woot, woot! Now to get back to painting some new (possibly blue) art for the next show. =)

Yay! I’m happy to be back here and ready to be creative every day after my move back to the US. Today’s update is on all of the great mail art received in the postcard swap!

Blue seems to have crept into my work without me realizing–blue sky after a rain storm, blue water highlighting some green leaves. Will try to be more aware of it this week!

My latest creativeness includes working on creative business card design, a unique website design, and some eco-friendly art!

I seem to be crocheting with a lot of turquoise this month… :D

Wanting to do more painting but garden, work (summer reading club @the library) feels like a lot going on. Try to finish one thing a week. Better than not at all :)

I always paint with blue. Lately I’ve been exploring what happens with blue and brown when they spend time together.

And as for kids and painting, I found it much easier to be creative with little ones if I kept my painting small and within boundaries. That’s where flying girl came from, I needed the limits of a single theme, so that I didn’t have to dig deep each time.

I painted a little redheaded girl eating watermelon. Blue sky in the background.
