Creative Every Day Check-In: October 1 – 7

October 1st, 2012

Art Every Day Month is next month! I hope you're excited!

This weekly check-in post is a place for Creative Every Day Challenge participants to share their creative activities.

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 10/1/12 - 10/7/12.

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 #CED2012!

Theme: The (totally optional) theme for October is Trees. You can read more about the optional theme here.

Happy Creating!

'These trees are magnificent, but even more magnificent is the sublime and moving space between them, as though with their growth it too increased.”- Rilke

Happy Monday and thanks for hosting! Wishing you a fabulous week :)


Excited? I have been gathering my papers and posting schedules on the diningroom wall already!!!
My only regret is having seen the sign in post too late. This time around I wasn´t the first (after you) to be there. ;)

I am so looking forward to stretching myself with art!! Thanks for hosting such a great challenge.

I too am looking forward to the challenge! I had so much fun last year, even though I stressed out a bit too. But I have plans for lots of small art, so hopefully that will keep me creating in my studio! Happy Autumn everyone!

So pleased with the October theme – trees. I don’t know why, but all my life I’ve sketched, doodled, drawn, painted and stitched pictures of trees. Now I have the perfect excuse!

Books are made of paper made from trees, that’s a close as I got to the theme :)

A slow week for me. I prepared a background canvas in preparation for Art Every Day Month.

Oooooooh, I love Trees — and they are soooo very special to me;) I actually love trying to draw them, too, and making some yummy Elixirs, which in fact the first one I’ll be making again this Fall will be with our White Pine Tree Needles!

Blessings to you all xo,

Hi Leah
I forgot to leave a comment yesterday…sorry!
I have just joined up for the November AEDM..hope that’s ok?
Best wishes to you and see you every day next month.

I have just joined the Creative Every Day Challenge. Through Art Journalling my creative juices have started flowing. I have become open and willing to try. My ‘blank paper’ fear syndrome has gone. I have open to impressions of sight and sound, texture and smell for sometime as I breed Russian Blue cats and to do this successfully you must learn to be observant to the feelings and behaviour of animals as they can’t ‘talk’ to you.

Packing up and moving my studio while we do some remodeling. Have a great week everyone. Terah

I forgot to check the theme….but butterflies do inhabit trees, so I am sort of OK here.

Only a month until another AEDM – where did that year go?

I love trees so this month’s theme is a pleasure. But first I’ve posted a couple of art journal pages with a new mandala. I haven’t blogged in over a month, for unavoidable reasons, but am glad to be back.

Wishing you all a happy & creative week!

I’m delighted to say that I attended the SoulCollage® facilitator training this past weekend and can now begin facilitating this wonderful, intuitive collage process myself! I wrote about the weekend, and the journey that SoulCollage® helped me to take, on this week’s post.

If anyone’s interested, you can find out more about SoulCollage® here:

thanks for hosting ! Happy creative week !

Hi Leah
I have not done trees today, but some of the seeds in my photo may have come from trees. Have a good weekend:)

Hi Leah
I have just linked up for AEDM and could not find a comment box…so here is my comment…
It was such fun last year I thought I would play along again..looking forward to seeing what everybody comes up with

I had not checked the theme for the month. I was delighted to find it was trees. They have been cropping up everywhere for me, I have been enjoying #treetuesday currated by +Christina Lawrie +Shannon S. Myers over on Google+.

So great to “see” y’all! I have had AEDM on my mind so much lately. I even prompted in twitter using the hashtag #AEDM2012. Hope that’s ok!

hello ! nice to be here, my first time on ‘creative every day’
am so glad to have found this and hope it will get my inspiration going. Caroline xx
