Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 19

November 19th, 2012


Today is day 19 of Art Every Day Month! Each day is a new day to create. What is inspiring you at this moment? Run with it and see where it takes 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 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 participant sign up page 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 #aedm2012 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2012 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.

Over the weekend I completed some art not related to my portrait – another project I’ve been working at all year my Book of Hours.

Hello Leah, I’ve managed to post a photo work of a little tree I love, she’s all in blue!

I’m so off track with the days I don’t know which end is up! :) Finally posted the Artist-in-Bloom Manifesto I’ve been working on for the last week. Happy Monday, all!

Thanks again Leah for organizing this. I am going to do my best to make the rounds and visit more of you today. I’ve been loving what I’ve seen you all doing.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! I am still trying to get my shop open, the shipments are delayed and the shelves are almost bare…Thanks for the chance to keep everyone posted, Leah!

Somehow I thought it was Day 21. You have no idea how happy I am to see it is ONLY Day 19!! Hooray!! LOL.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone is up to – I read about wet felting and needle felting on one of the check ins and guess what I want to try now?!

I scanned a bunch in this afternoon so my post catches up on what I did *last* week. No way can I create, scan, and post daily, in awe of those who can! And I’ve been terrible at getting to more than the Flickr group but love what I’ve seen there.

I seem to get later and later with my posts. My days are getting busier as we move towards the holidays! But it is always nice at the end of a busy day to look and see what everyone has been up to.

Leah, Some pretty rainbow watercolors and a bonus book review too!

Your art work is always wonderful ~ Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving early ~ enjoy the day ~ (A Creative Harbor)

I am finally back to posting something today after an almost 11 day break! Good to be back and seeing so many still going strong on the challenge!
