Creative Every Day Check-In: 21 – 27

January 21st, 2013


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 1/21/13 - 1/27/13.

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: January's totally optional theme is Dark, which you read more about here.

Happy Creating!

Hello Leah, hope all well your way, have a great week! xx

Hi Leah

I can’t seem to find your Mr. Linky this morning, but wishing you a great week!

Stay inspired!

It takes 21 days to create a new habit and I like this one! Creating art every day is awesome and every day brings something new.

I posted my week 3 summary this morning…

I’ve done my first fascinating face for 2013 – a version of a de lempicka

Just signed up and am excited to create. I think this will help good intentions from being neglected.

Creating every day makes me think about being present, and from time to time I like to make this the theme of my creations and reflections.
Have a wonderful week!

Dark winter flowers…. :)

Excited to find the check in page! Can’t wait to see what everyone has worked on this week, and maybe get some feedback.

I’m super excited to do this. :)

I am into black backgrounds so I think my latest painting fits in with the theme for January…

This week, I chose to take obscurity and set fire to it ;-)

Oops! Wrong link ;-)

Very excited to be participating in this year’s Creative Everyday Challenge

Awesome! Thanks, Leah! Had quite the creative week, in spite of having pretty much zero time. Ah, the life of an artist mama! I love it. :)

First time here-I came from Carol McKenna’s blog. I’ll have my son help me add the badge to my blog :)

Finding my way around! Finally got my Dark Theme completed and posted on January 21, 2013! Making Progress! Blessings!

Hi, everyone! Participating in this challenge in 2012 motivated me to create over 550 pieces of art…so it was a no brainer to sign up again! Thank you for the inspiration! It certainly helps me to have this as a motivational tool.

For the month of January, my interpretation of ‘dark’ was to draw/paint dark-haired women, with tattoos and piercings…then a peacock motif sidetracked me…the some other tattoos took me another way…then I was working with some lyrics and quotes that included darks…my final two pieces (still in progress as of today) as closing up this series, including little hints of all the different imagery that I worked with this month.

To view what I came up with so far, please visit

Happy Artin’!
