Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 11

November 11th, 2011


Welcome to day 11 of Art Every Day Month! One foot in front of the other, you creative genius, you (yes, you!)

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're receiving this post via email, you'll have to click through the blog to see the widget.) 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, last year for day one I linked 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'll be using the hashtag #aedm2011 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2011 hashtag if you're playing along on Instagram.

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.



Degas had it right. True creativity lies in using everything available in the medium at the moment. I think it's important to have a plan but I think one should also be flexible and go with the flow. ~Mary Jean Mailloux

Day 11 and it feels like we only started yesterday! I’m having so much fun! Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks to my fellow AEDM members for your support and for being such a great inspiration ~ :)

So wonderful to meet the kindness from fellow creative doers here. Thanks for sharing your inspiration and for your support. And thank you Leah for hosting, I´m a first-timer here and amazed that you manage even with a baby to care for! Take care, Xx Lise.

So great to be a part of this ‘art every day’. Today – a little light to guide in the onset of early darkness.

Thank you for sponsoring AEDM. This week, I’m making yarn vases. Starting to think about what to do for next week. My AEDM photo is at the end of my regular post.

Wishing everyone a wonderful 11-11-11! Thanks for popping by my page…will be checking out your awesome and creative work!

Another little poem/small stone. The title is again deceiving.

I can’t believe how motivating AEDM is! Even after a 16 hour work day, I was dying to get in my studio.

Thank you for the kind comments, I am glad so many of you are finding that my little tutorials are helping with your art.<3

Some days have been easier than others to fit art into, but I am thrilled with how AEDM is making me work through an idea rather than just producing snippets of things. Thanks for organising, especially whilst you are so busy with a tiny person :)

Yesterday I finished my bowl instead of working in the sketchbook, but I got creative!

Still hanging in there, great to be part of it!

rainy days and kitty art :D

I’m back in the studio after a couple days away. Looking forward to being here uninterrupted for the rest of AEDM!

New painting. New video of my kitten who was born without eyes. Happy 11.11.11!!

Finally got to the tape and created a nice cover up :)
Happy Friday! i want to say that I’m having a great time getting to see all this wonderful art. It’s so inspiring and keeps me going !

My art everyday has turned into Art every other day. But I am still enjoying the challenge, and its making me create more than I did. Im also so much enjoying seeing other blogs and creations. So fun!!

doodled some buttons today! happy weekend to everyone!

Wow, I accidentally posted day 11 in day 9…. oh well! Hope everyone is enjoying the day!

Despite a difficult week I’m proud and pleased to say that I finished my embroidered mandala! :-) )

Mine is different today. As usual. LOL

Today I painted with my daughter and her class to raise money for Great pictures over at The Inspired Life:)

Turned the creative resin over to my son!

Oops! Should say reins…not resin! As much as he’d like to try out the resin!

Another rough day but it’ll get better :) I hope.

Hey I made it before 11:00

It was a busy day, but my daughters and I had an hour at a restaurant before a school event and we drew on index cards!

Had this already to go this morning and forgot to hit post…..daaaaaa :( I wish my brain would start working again.

Well, I’ve forgotten to check in ’til now, but I’ve been keeping up with it, linking it to NanoJouMo and using the prompts to get me drawing/creating! Well done to everyone else who has made it through almost 2 weeks now!
