Creative Every Day Check-In: September 5 – 11

September 5th, 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 9/5/11 - 9/11/11.

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!

Wow, I’ve never been so near the top! :) Obviously it’s not the red month any more but I just finished a red and yellow painting… Happy creative week to everyone :)

A few thoughts about labor day..and changes – in life and in seasons.

Goin’ down to the art studio to work on some art journal pages for my first swap! :) Have posted a few new things since I last linked up here, and will be posting more as I process our trip to El Salvador.

Checking in ~ Happy Labor Day to you ~ Hope you had a good weekend ~ hugs and namaste, Carol ~ ^_^ ~ Thanks again for hosting this wonderful event !

My 2nd blog ~ also filled with creativity ~ enjoy ~ namaste, Carol ^_^

I love the theme. I already did something on history at the end of August. I couldn’t wait^^

This week’s post is a little bit of my own history, through my journey home.

Tried something I have never done before with good results which makes me happy indeed.

A little bit of painting in the midst of drying figs, the fragrance and sweetness is amazing.

For history month. More vintage quilt blocks. terah

I am new to this challenge but feel it is going to be a good fit for me, allowing me to do a number of different creative things. I need that right now! This week I have been spending time on an altered book collaboration -finally getting back to it!

I’ve been a bit awol from blogland this past fortnight but I’m back with a post about patterns in life and art which I think I could also develop to link to this month’s CED theme of history.

Look forward to catching up with you all. Meanwhile hope you’re all having a happy & creative week!

Hello! I’ve just joined in! I thought joining the CED challenge would help motivate me to write and post every day. Don’t know if there are any other poets signed up for this or not.

I haven’t done any poetry this month related to the theme, so I just linked to my main blog page, which shows my most recent post.

Look forward to visiting the other participants’ blogs!

Just blogged a simple post about a spectacular leaf on a walk in the rain. It doesn’t have to be complicated and nice to have the words just flow.

I see many familiar blog faces here and continue to enjoy visiting when I can. I also am consciously working to be creative EVERY day in some way. I feel so gratified and proud of myself because sometimes it’s only a small 15 minute thing but sometimes I carve out a couple of hours and really get my hands dirty. Love the support from this site and others like it!
