Art Every Day Month, Day 3

November 3rd, 2013


Today is the 3rd day of Art Every Day Month! I'm already so inspired! I wish I could get around to see everyone's work every day like I used to, but life is very full right now! I have loved what I've seen thus far and I'm so thrilled with this wonderful group of creative souls. Keep sharing and keep cheering each other on!

***I'm going to make a note of this at the end of the check-in posts from now on, but want to mention it up here today where people might be more likely to notice it. To answer some questions I've been asked a lot recently, you don't need to leave a comment after joining the challenge (there isn't a space to do it!) or after every day in the check-in. ( I love reading your comments, so please do if you'd like, it's just not required!) The Mr. Linky widget automatically asks you to leave a comment and I can't edit that out, so feel free to ignore him. Haha. Also, it sometimes takes a little time for a link and/or image to appear, so if you don't see it right away, check back in a few minutes. 

Thank you for your comments and emails regarding the Facebook group idea. I really appreciate your input! I do see pros and cons to both sides. At this time, I'm not going to do it because I don't think I could keep up with an extra thing and I like the central hub here, but I may revisit the idea in the future. 

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, in a past AEDM, 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. Mr. Linky automatically asks for a comment, leave one if you'd like (I love to hear from you!), but it's not required. It may take a little time for your image and/or link to appear. If you don't see it right away, check back in a few minutes. 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 #aedm2013 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2013 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. Feel free to keep checking in on Mondays or post whenever you have something new to share!
