Creative Every Day Check-In: September 12 – 18

September 12th, 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 9/12/11 - 9/18/11.

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 September is History, which you can read more about and get ideas for here.

Happy Creating!

Each has his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by heart and his friends can only read the title. ~Virginia Woolf

I managed a walk along the canal on Saturday and this was my resulting creation :) .
Wishing everyone a good week.
Stay inspired!

My post is a result of my version of doodling, with yarn, beads and a crochet hook, instead of pencil and paper. Enjoy!

Another piece of history (love this theme!) – reflecting on “femininity” and the unique feminine force that exists within us all, passed on from generation to generation.

Still trying to sort those patterns (see blog post) both historical and future. :-)

Wishing you all a happy & creative week!

Hello everyone!!! I am going back to my real time job after along break. I am healing feeling better. Everyday I do something creative! xxoo

thank you for this place to share how art is helping us to live our lives more fully! blessings, katy

I’ve been cleaning out my house and finding wonderful treasures I’d forgotten about – like the sequins I used in my post. Since I keep stopping to do art – it takes a while to get it actually cleaned out…

I’ve moved my blogs over to tumblr, so the blog I signed up for the challenge with is no longer the blog I’m using… hope that’s okay. I linked to a paper project today on my art/craft blog instead of poetry on my poetry blog–hope that’s okay, too. The project uses pages from an old book, so I suppose it (accidentally) fits the optional “history” theme for the month ;-)

i think my art et heart are talkimg about my family

Ugh ugh ugh on being a day late with my check in. My post just about says it all! LOL

I worked in my art journal, an altered book, took lots of photos and have been cooking more . . .

Finished another girl holding a black bird in her hand painting. She was the only one (who could save him).

Hello. I have shared on my blog, As The Art Flies, a vintage craft which is fun to do and will make fun gifts for the foodies in your life. The craft came from seeing a 1930’s-40’s trivet made of bottle caps and cotton fabrics. What a historical way to lower your carbon footprint. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Cheers.

Okay ladies and gentlemen, I got really fired up with the history theme. I just added another post – yes the same day. Like I said this right up the alley I have been walking lately. Please feel free to visit my other blog which focuses on period clothing and food.

After a little holiday a little bit of painting. Two different takes on the same sketch, which do you like best?
Have a great week.
