Creative Every Day Check-In: December 26 – Jan 1

December 26th, 2011

This weekly check-in post is a place for Creative Every Day Challenge participants to share their creative activities. To those who celebrate, I hope you have a beautiful Christmas!

Join in the Challenge: You can now sign-up for the 2012 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 12/26/11 - 1/1/12.

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! In 2012, use the hashtag #CED2012!

Theme: The (totally optional) theme for December is Winter, which you can read more about and get ideas for here.

Happy Creating!

Never are voices so beautiful as on a winter's evening, when dusk almost hides the body, and they seem to issue from nothingness with a note of intimacy seldom heard by day. ~Virginia Woolf

Last comment of 2011! All the best :)

With only a sprinkling of snow – it’s not feeling much like winter. Couldn’t help but run out and try to capture the few flakes as they fell.

I’m in Florida. My version of winter is having the temperature a little cooler than summer. Bugsy has it right in my creation for this week… He’s daydreaming in a field.

This week I had fun crafting some winter gnomes at our cabin. Happy Holidays everyone!

No snow for us this Christmas. Looking forward to a new year and a new start.

We continue to have mild weather here, though it frosts at night. I love this week between Christmas and New Year, it feels like a time of hibernation.

This week has been me sketching or finding things to sketch to get out how I feel about breaking up with someone. It was like 4 am and I had this image stuck in my mind so I had to get it out.

I also joined the Flickr Group and posted it on there too.

This week’s post is about exploring the ancestral roots of my Motherline. A fascinating journey that I highly recommend for anyone interested in making connections between your own personal story and the story of your ancestors.

I am an abstract painter who creates regularly and encourages others to discover their creativity while enjoying life’s simple luxuries. Just found your blog and glad to see you are encouraging so many to explore their creativity. Great job!
