Art Every Day Month Check In

November 1st, 2016


Welcome to Art Every Day Month

The box below is a widget that I provide as an optional place to share a direct link (blog post or flickr image) to your creations. If you don't have something to share each day, 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 this post and the links on the participant post for instant inspiration. You can also see lots of great work in the AEDM flickr group and Facebook group. Feel free to share your work there too! I'll be traveling part of the month, but I'll be sharing my images on the Facebook group.

If you use the widget, please link to a specific blog post or image, 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 from that day.  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 talk about what you're working on. If you're posting less than once a day, no problem! 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 sign up here. The Information page also has instructions about how to use the widget below, if you're having any trouble with it.

Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2016 hashtag if you're playing along on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. A Facebook group has been created as yet another place to share. 

Creative Every Day Challenge participants: If you're not doing Art Every Day Month, you can still use the Art Every Day Month check-in posts to leave a link to what you're working on.

Posting Art Every Day this Month to thank my Patrons for their continued support. They help me keep art affordable and part of Creative Wellness in my Every Day life.

Checking in Day 1. I went a little easy on myself after the dog and pony show of Inktober. It’s still early but I already did a bit of lettering so I posted it.

Hi Leah! Thank you for hosting yet again. AEDM is always such a nice part of the year.

Hi, Leah,

I just wanted to say thanks for continuing to make a place for AEDM at! (I have chosen not to join Facebook.)

To me, AEDM participation seemed a little sparser, this year, than it was during the last two or three years, but I still got to see some lovely things, and I got more responses to my work than I generally get during the rest of the year. AEDM is my favorite aspect of November–it’s a great consolation for the increasing cold and dark!

I hope your travels of this month went well, and I send you and yours good wishes for December and for 2017.

Thanks again!
