Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 23

November 23rd, 2012


Today is day 23 of Art Every Day Month! Even small moments can be creative. Even when you don't feel like time, there's usually time for a little something, even a doodle on a post-it note.

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.

Hello Leah, well I made it back here today with a Christmas piece, it’s that time of year I begin creating some greeting cards, so here’s a little glimpse.

Today I’m off to help my big sister move into the dream home of her retirement years. I’m so happy for her and excited to share this big day with her. But before I go, I wanted to share a weird art experience I had recently via today’s post. Have a great day, everyone. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.

Thank you for hosting the Art Every Day really makes a big difference to my level of creativity even though I have not posted on all days.

I’m trying to hang in there! Thanks for keeping us inspired, Leah! I made a colorful little village…

Finished a painting today that I’m donating to a charity auction. It’s the first painting I’ve ever shown in public, let alone asked money for, so it’s a bit nerve-wracking! Exciting too!
