Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 20

November 20th, 2012


Today is day 20 of Art Every Day Month! I'm back from my trip and back to posting my art here each day! I'm glad I could keep up creating each day, but missed sharing it here! I hope you've all had a great weekend!

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.

Slowing down a bit this week with Thanksgiving preparations, so I put up a tiny retrospective of some work today! Hope everyone else is doing well!

I love all the wonderful art you did on vacation, Leah. Isn’t it amazing how that little muse gets inspired when we relax?

Progress continues….

My creative process continues to teach me….

Not many images but a lot of words are coming out of me this week! Been working on my book and today had a poem published on Where the Spirited Women Gather, which is a huge compliment. It’s on my blog too of course. :)

Love your holiday paintings Leah; so simple and so gorgeous.

Hi Leah! Thanks for hosting this creative party :) ) Just linked up some Christmas Villages which have inspired me to make my own!


I’m still inspired and creating every day. Thanks for the nudge.

Had a few days off as I’ve not been well but managed to get a painting finished today. Just pleased that I’m still keeping going.

Just want to give you a quick thanks Leah as I am finding now I am finishing off half done art and tangle pieces for my contribution for the day. They may never have been completed without your challenge!

I’m back too, from leading my retreat, but I’m still playing catch-up and putting most of my energy into tweaking my website (again/still) and putting together my new offerings. Impressive that you can go on vacation, be a Mom and STILL get work done for this month!
