Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 27

November 27th, 2011


Today is day 27 of Art Every Day Month! Another beautiful day to express yourself is ahead! What will you do with it?

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.

Can’t believe the month is almost over – it has been a great experience!

Hard to believe we’ve made it to the last week…WOW!

The end is coming too soon. I’m not ready!

Yesterday I had dinner with a girl from Singapore who was in Buenos Aires for a conference. I had met her on line through the conections and friendships I made starting here at your site in the MrLinky creative sections. Thank you for the endless possibilities! :)
Picture here:

Final few days. This week I’m playing around with Christmas Trees. The photo of my AEDM work is at the end of my regular post.

I’ve been writing a lot but It has been quite a while since a wrote a blog-post. I guess I just waited until the right thing came along :-) Last week about princes, this week about princesses and queens :-)

I can’t believe I wrote this on a sunday, that’s unmistakably thanks to AEDM: it doesn’t matter if it’s week or weekend: just create every day :-D

Thank you, Leah, you always freshen up the “creative attitude”!

It has been so nice getting in touch with fellow artists! Thanks for doing this!

Happy Day 27! I have posted both 26 and 27 today. BUsy weekend but glad to make some time for art. This month has been a terrific challenge!

Rush, rush, rush – part of this time of year! I’ve been trying to post as often as possible, but not commenting here so much. I have mixed feelings about the month ending – sad to say goodbye but so happy to have been part of this wonderful experience.
Once again, Thank you, Leah!!!

Hapy AEDM Day 27…blogged 26 and 27 together

This has really flown by! I have greatly enjoyed it and am thinking about doing the creative everyday challenge. Thank you so much for this opportunity!

hi Leah.
I am doing some more work on my journal today. The days have flown and it’s almost the end of the month. If you have posted up the December challenge i might have missed it…not very observant..but I will keep looking.

have a good day

[...] a big pot of chili, another thing the day seems to call for.¬†And I’m linking up to Day 27 of Art Every Day Month–be sure to check out all the other AEDM participants’ artwork, too! Share [...]

Today I made gifts for my mentors.

It has been a rather frustrating week, with my creativity running low. I can’t believe it’s only three days left! It’s such a good experience!

My inspiration (or my mind!) is starting to wane as I busy up with other creative projects – I only remembered to make art late in the evening on the 27th. I still went to the table though, and created another background in waiting with my brayer.

Only a few more days left!
