Creative Every Day Check-In: December 31 – January 6

December 31st, 2012

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 sign-up for the 2013 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 12/31/12 - 1/6/13.

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 or Instagram you can use the hashtag #CED2013!

Theme: The (totally optional) theme for December is Celebrate. You can read more about the optional theme here. January's totally optional theme is Dark, which you read more about here.

Happy Creating!

Happy New Year!

Stay inspired!

Very excited to join in this year. I have a flicker account that I linked and my blog
Happy New Year!!

Best wishes to you Leah and your loved ones for the New Year! xx

Happy New Year everyone!!

I’ve found your yearly challenges so inspirational in the past and although I keep your button posted on my blog I admit I’ve had little time to participate. So this year if I have one resolution it will be to get more involved here.
Thanks so much for all you do to inspire Leah ~ here’s wishing you a year filled with inspiration, laughter, and love!

Leah, I love your badge for the 2013 year, and ADORE the art for January’s Dark theme. I’ve been writing about that theme repeatedly this year, but I’m sure it will stick with me in the New Year too.

This week’s post is my reflection on the lessons of the 13 moons of 2012 – all on the theme of letting go.

Happy New Year everyone!

Thank you for the inspiration, all the best for 2013 :)

I DID IT!!!!


This New Year’s will be the most meaningful one yet! And you can bet I will be doing the 2013 CED Challenge! Can’t wait!

Happy new year, everyone! I just finished my year of doing process art every day, so celebrating sounds perfect. In 2013, I’m going to broaden the kinds of art I do, including quilting and pine needle basketry. Can’t wait to see what others are up to in the new year!

hello all. i am snarling – very pleased to be here with everyone. i am going to be more creative this year and hope to at least flick my creativity 3 or 4 times a week… so cin-cin to a new year!

I will join again. Even when I have little time I´ve enjoyed this project.I am still ceelbrating my journey so my latest photos have been about this. Happy 2013 xx

I’m delighted to have found this challenge and I’m joining in!

My creative thing for this very first day has been to do a recap on all the textiles pieces I did over the last year on my blog. It takes so long selecting and placing photos, then all the post editing on the blogging software, that it’s both a creative and patience testing process!

I plan to post a ‘What I did for the CED challenge’ summary every Monday. For anyone interested, my main focus is textiles – mostly embroidery of many types, but also yarn crafts, but I’m also interested in fine art and design.

Now, let’s see what we can cook up this year…

Happy New Year everyone. I may not post every day, but I’m hoping to create every day this year! I’m looking forward to being inspired by everyone :)

I loved this theme and working with the imagery ~ thanks so much for the inspiration Leah! I hope to have a chance to create something in paint a little later in the month as well!

Looking forward to a wonderfully creative year!! Thanks Leah!

Cant wait to get started on this year long challenge and the theme of dark is right up my street.
Many thanks for the inspiration
