Creative Every Day Check-In: October 22 – 28

October 22nd, 2012

Art Every Day Month is next month! I hope you're excited! If you're looking for a little extra help through AEDM, check out the Survival Guide!

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 10/22/12 - 10/28/12.

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!

Trees are poems
Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.
~Kahlil Gibran

I am finally back on track, with posting and creating. It has been a challenging few weeks. I is good to be back.

Hi Leah! Thanks for hosting this fun and creative party :) ) Hope you have a lovely week!


This might be cheating a tiny bit, as I did this painting recently but not, like, TODAY. But I couldn’t resist as it’s not only a tree painting, but it also uses today’s quote!

Looking forward to AEDM; I’m doing it with a friend this year for extra accountability!

Trying to get my creative “mo-jo” back on…. Creative Every Day is always such an inspiring place to visit! Thanks for hosting and can’t wait for AEDM!!

cant think where to start … !

I was photographing some trees when I saw the roses in the foreground, so I went with them. I am also looking forward to AEDM

I’m looking forward to the challenge!

Hello Leah, I’m posting my son’s halloween picture here with its spooky trees and ambiance, have a fun and spooky Halloween! xx

I linked my blog up for the Creative Everyday Challenge. I am looking forward to meeting you and other artist and hoping to get creating ASAP. I first found your Nov. Challenge, but I think I like the year round challenge more and hoping it helps me get more motivated.

( I am a full time college student and do write a little on my blog bout things which interest me. Should I post writings to a different blog while I am participating with the challenge?)

Happy painting :)

:) I feel totally insane for ‘taking on’ anything else, but I’m definitely feeling like I just want a fun, no-pressure way to enjoy creating art everyday, and why not use some awesome group energy to do it!

Oh dear. I tried to sign up for November’s Art Every Day Month and think I also accidentally signed up for Creative Every Day. The various links/sign-ups confused me…I’m so sorry. I can’t find a way to delete myself from what I *think* is the wrong sign-up, either.

Since I’m already commenting…my 8yo son would like to make art every day with me in November. Is it okay to post some of his artwork in the Flickr group as well? Or is that just for adults? I can’t sign him up separately because he doesn’t have a blog. :) (Perhaps he’ll start one by the end of November to post his own work!!)

Hey Amy, Don’t worry about it!! Yes, feel free to have your son post his work on your Flickr too! Can’t wait to see!
