Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 6

November 6th, 2012


Welcome to day 6 of Art Every Day Month! Best wishes in all your creative endeavors today!

I usually post my art at the end of the day, but every morning there will be a check-in post like this one, where you can share your work whenever you're ready to do so.

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.

I am so excited to take part in this! Already I am more productive and very inspired. What a great month this is going to be!

Leah, I love your tree and the sweet hearts.

I’m finding the challenge so inspiring this year – thank you so much :)

I’m off to help my sister today but will check in on all my creative pals this evening. Have a great day!

I haven’t done much today. Just have some fun with blog tag. Chance to know more people :)

It has been a great six days, So much creativity and so many ideas and sparks. This year I told myself I would stay focused and not run out and try new things each day.
I remember now why I always end up trying new things in November. So far I am on track, but I have a list of new things/methods to try.

The challenge inspired me to open my art journal last night and again this morning to PAINT and get messy!

Come see MY fifty shades of grey today.

Really enjoying trying out some different ideas & basically playing!

This is only Day 2 for me and I’m so happy to be participating and creating again, after a bit of a creative block.

And I managed to a blog post at last to cover days 1-6 – I feel out of breath I’ve been in such a rush…..LOL :-)

Happy AEDM2012 everyone!

Kat :-)

I have managed to participate in this! Just so happy for that…first day I come along to join in some fun and share with you all here!

Hello! I am working towards the art every day this November challenge. Almost getting my pledge to do something everyday into a habit of mind and body. With that said, I attended a workshop at my fav store Anthropologie. They had people come in and play with paper creating paper baked goods for the winter display. Please stop by the store if you live in Berkeley California (Hearst and 4th street) store to see our efforts. You can see the cupcake I made and the cake, too on my blog.

I just discovered the existence of AEDM today and absolutely love the idea. I had a great morning break of drawing and hot tea, thanks to your inspiration!
