Art Every Day Month 2017 Sign-Up

October 18th, 2017

Art Every Day Month is once again right around the corner! This will be the 16th year I have been creating daily for the month of November and inviting others to join in. Art Every Day Month (AEDM) is a low pressure challenge for anyone who wants to challenge themselves to create daily for a month. Low pressure means if you miss a day, brush yourself off, and get back to it. No worries. By art, I'm talking broadly. You could be cooking, taking pictures, dancing, writing music, crafting for the holidays, painting, sculpting, writing poetry, making jewelry, sewing, knitting, art journaling, you name it. You could decide to do a small 2"x2" drawing each day or you could do something different every day. Up to you! I tend to do more drawing and painting because that's what I like, but you can follow your heart. Just create!

This year, I'll mainly be posting my creations in the Facebook group where you can share your creations as well. If you're on Instagram or Facebook you can use the hashtag #aedm2017. I'll also have a post here on November 1st, where you can share links to creations you've made throughout the month. 

Read more about the challenge here and then sign up below by leaving a comment. If you have a blog, website, flickr page, or instagram handle where you'll be sharing, share that below. If you aren't sharing your work online, then just leave a comment saying that you're participating. 

The challenge begins November 1st!

So need this right now!!

definitely in again — thanks for the reminder — forgot about it — have participated every year for the past few — I do not have a website so just add me without one — thanks leah and looking forward to this once again Joanne

Missed seeing you all. Life has been hectic with one surgery behind him and one more to go the beginning of November for my hubby and my art has taken a different path entirely so this should be a really interesting challenge for me this year. Best I can promise is to try and post each day. Looking forward to the challenge and to seeing what the Creative Everyday “Family” has been up to as well!! xoxox Maro

I need to be inspired, thank you!!

this is an anchor in my life – so happy to see it here, esp this year which has been a true adventure.

Love to see all the creative artwork!

Yes, I need this challenge to keep me going. Thanks for keeping this ongoing year after year.

I am forever grateful to Tammy Vitale for telling me about AEDM a few years ago. It has been instrumental in re-thinking my creative life. Love it! Thank you for doing again this year especially in the midst of your busy life.

Looking forward to this

I’d like to participate in the art a day, when does it start!

I am sooooo in and ready!! Much needed! Thank you!

Looking forward to it! It’ll be another adventure

Yes please, I always want Aet Every Day, but in November it’s a given!

Thanks Leah for hosting this once more!

Hi Leah! So glad you’re doing this again! I always enjoy participating!

I will be posting my creations on my Patreon page and sharing them to Facebook, twitter, etc. from there.


I’ve just completed #sketchtember and half way through #inktober! Loving it so far! I’m up for another month of motivation so count me in for #aedm2017 ! I’ll be sharing on my insta (and maybe facebook but not decided

I’m ready to go! :) Love this challenge. I hope to do way better this year. :)

I’m in!

‘m in again. This is either my 8th or 9th year. Doing this provides structure and makes me more productive. My added blog structure of working through the alphabet pushes my creativity. And its fun.

Let’s do this!!

this sounds like fun

Yay! Excited to be back for another year.

I’ll be back!

Looking forward!

I’m commited to create along with this beautiful project <3

Hope I can get back on the wagon!

Insta/Twitter/FB – @classymcg

participating and probably posting.

Looking forward to a new challenge — thanks for hosting us in this adventure.

I’m totally in and will try my darndest to create something everyday of a busy month!

I’ll give it a shot.

First time

Love this idea. Even if you try and fail to make it every day, you’ve still made something!

Grateful to Jamie Ridler for sharing your idea of Art Everyday Month! I’m in

I love the impetus of art everyday in November!

I’m in. This will be a first for me.

I’m excited to be challenged and now with Facebook it is easier.

I’m in. I’ve been thinking about restarting the blog, perfect!

Need something to get me motivated so will give it a go thanks

I’m in- need to get back on track!

Hope I can get back to making art

I’m in! My aedm will be posted on my new Instagram-account @artby_aw.

I am in !! first time !

Even a scribble doodle in daily journal count?


Good luck to all, newcomers and those returning!

Barbaree, yes, that counts!

Yay Drawing! I usually make sketches on 4×6 index cards. Having a theme to fall back on, when I’m not feeling inspired, definitely helps… but I’m not sure what the theme will be, yet. Happy Arting, everyone!

I’d like to try!

Can’t wait for 1 November 2017!! Please count me in. My blog is Yay November!

Thank you for this!

Odd that I’m signing up for this now as a pre-art therapy student. I remember when you started this, Leah!

Darling! So very happy to see you doing this again.
I´m going with an Instagram stories pic a day to be sure I´ll be getting round to it. :D
I haven´t touched my mixed media art in a couple of years!

Hello everyone! This was brought to my attention through a book I am reading reading right now by Jennifer Lee called The Right-Brain Business Plan. Since the author’s right-brain “business plan” was inspired by and manifested through this month long challenge, I decided to join in and do the challenge myself! The book fell into my lap right at the perfect time! I will be posting my daily creations to my Artist Facebook page called, Good JuJu by Julie Staub.

Yes, I’m in, I love participating in this month.

Ready to reconnect with everyone through a daily art practice :)

I have been wanting to try making ATC’s and I think this challenge would be a perfect place to do them. Can’t wait to start.

Planning on joining-in again this year. Looking forward to it!

So looking forward to this,

I’d like to give this a try!

Wow, 16 years!! Awesome and thank you, Leah! Looking forward to it! <3

I was looking over my archives last week and discovered the enormous creative output I had in 2013 (!!!) and how much I missed it. All the AEDM postings reminded me… I really need this. Count me back in dear Leah. :-)

Looking forward to this!

First timer here. I really need this, and look forward to being inspired to create!

I will be doing this. November is my birthday month and I want to spend it doing art.

Looking forward to participating…will be posting on instagram at @SJBCreativeArt and my Facebook Fan Page SJB Creative Art

Joining this year… even with more on my plate than I have ever had as a new mom and business owner. I plan to open my journal and draw and write for just ten minutes. I can do that right!?! Thank you!

This sounds great :) I’ll be modifying it by making playful art every day. Haven’t been doing enough of that lately

I’ll be participating again this year, and I’m looking forward to seeing all of your works! :)

This will be my first time – definitely looking forward to what this challenge will bring. Thank you!

I’m a bit nervous to do this, but it sounds like a great challenge and opportunity. Count me in, please.

Ah. Just what I need to get started! Have the supplies, but everything has been intention only thus far. Thank you for showing up to get me going! Blessings!

Am so looking forward to this again this year! Thanks for sharing!

Sounds like a good idea, and good timing for me. Creative challenges make such a difference! I’ll be posting on Instagram as sandysewin.

Happy creating!

Let’s start this!

I’m in!!!!

I am in

I’m in! So excited to get involved.

I just did something similar in September. Challenges like this can be so helpful–and since I’m a little tired from the last one, I like the more broad, loose quality of this one–I usually paint, but have been wanting to increase my drawing time–I like that soup making and writing can count–though I probably won’t post those. There are a couple related online classes I may or may not participate in that would coincide. November is shaping up to be a strange month–but one during which I can probably use some extra companionship. Thank you.

Joining!! :)

I will be posting on instagram as well


I haven’t done this in excited.

I love this! I’m finishing up the Write 31 Days project.. this is the perfect challenge for November!

I want to! I will be leaving Nov 17, but I’m going to try anyway :) I need something to motivate me.

count me in ❤

I’m in – I so need this right now!

first #inktober, now this? Count me in!

I’m in!

Just the inspiration I need. I’m in!

Count me in

Hello! I’m new to this. Just created my first blog and haven’t even made a post. This will be a great way to get to posting some of my work. Thank you! I looked forward to seeing what everyone contributes. Cheers!

Thank you I am so looking forward to this , going paint and also bring some textile art back to my daily practice.

I’m in! And looking forward

I am in this year. I think I m going to challenge myself with watercolor.

I’m in!!! Whoot

Looking forward to giving this a try!

I NEVER do things like this, even though I think I should. I graduated college (finally) in May, so I have more time now. This seems like a great way to spend it! I’ll be posting via Twitter (@creativmagic). I already have a project in mind, so we’ll see how this goes!

I’m looking forward to giving this a try :) I came to this challenge through an email from Jennifer at Artizen Coaching Newsletter – I need a jump start and this looks like it!

Thanks for mentoring us!

For some reason, I was surprised you are offering this again this year. Count me in, too, please.

I’m in! I need – NEED – to solidify my daily creative practice, and this is perfect timing :)

Yes! Every day!

Looking forward to the inspiration.

Thank you Leah. A friend sent me a link to your challenge and we’re taking it up together. It’s just what I need right now.
Looking forward to the experience.

Count me in. Hoping to break out of being stuck in oh so many ways.

more than happy to be a part of this challenge. I’m up for it.

Just received a reminder about this from Jenn Lee. I’m in and looking forward to taking part!

Oh, My, this will be such a fun help…!

I’ll be participating on instagram (amanda.jessie)

An artwork everyday for a month. I am in.

I am in! I have always set aside doing this for years. Now in this low time of my life, I need to feed myself with creativity. Thank you for keeping this program alive.

I’m in! This will be amazing!

Yes! I’m excited to join you. Learned about this from Jen at Artizen Coaching. Thank you!

Just read the newsletter from Jennifer Lee that mentioned AEDM. I am definitely in and looking forward to an extra commitment to my art!! I will be sharing my pics on Instagram @kimberlyanncreates. Looking forward to seeing November explode in creativity!

Time to give it a try

I’ve also just come to this though the Jennifer Lee newsletter. Perfect timing as I needed something to help kickstart my creativity. My pics will be posted on Instagram @amanda_gayl Looking forward to seeing everyones creations!

I am in! Thank you for holding this space.

Hoping to successfully complete the 30 days. I’ve signed up the past few years but did not complete the challenge. Back in 2012, I did complete the challenge. Looking forward to AEDM in November.

I’m in!

I’m in!! #noresistance #justfun

Yeah!! Can’t wait

I’m in, posting about this from my blog!

Love and hugs of encouragement to everyone! So excited to be joining….thank you for creating such a fun and inspiring challenge Leah! xoxoxo

Yes! I’ve been looking for a Nov. challenge – count me in!

Look forward to joining! Referred from Jennifer Lee’s emails.

I’m in!

Yep, I agree with many here, I so need this. I missed Inktober entirely and am so looking forward to once again doing this.

Hi All! Excited to be here.
Thanks so much x

I would love to do this!

I am keen to try this out. Thanks for the opportunity.
I will likely be sharing any creations on Instagram:

I haven’t joined in for a few years but looking forward to participating this year!

I’ve been stalling for years, the perfect way to move back in. I love that cooking is also an option as I enjoy it and maybe I will draw some of my meals!
I don’t have any blogs but I can post on Google+ I would think.
Thank you for encouraging and inspiring us!

I’ve been wanting to create more and need this inspiration.

I’m giving this a try again! Hoping I can keep up.

So excited to participate in this again. I missed it last year, but I’m ready for another 30 days of daily practice. I’ll be doing found poetry in a book I’ve been trying to finish for the year. It’s called Year of Yes.

I’m so excited to take part in this for the first time! Thank you for hosting it.
I will be posting on Instagram vs. on my blog for this.

Looking forward to seeing what we all create and share!

Yay! Looking forward to Art Everyday again!

(Forgot to add my last name)

I always enjoy AEDM made myself a tiny journal to work in for this month. I should be able to fill it and hope I might need to make another one.. Have fun every one..

I am in! Excited and ready.

Hello. (:
This will be my first time participating in this, as I just found out about it. It sounds like a great idea!
(I probably won’t post something every day, since my dad just had surgery on his shoulder, so I’m going to have a lot more chores to do around the house for several weeks, but I will put them on my Instagram – – when I do.)
It will mostly consist of photography, but I’m hoping to get a few drawings in there, too.

Best of fun to you all!~

I’m in!

Do I have to use my real name? Anyways I would love to join! This is my first art challenge

Oh, how I wished I could join full time…, but full time work got real busy and is stressing me, which, on the other hand, is a good reason to balance it with art.
I have abandoned my blog a while ago, so I will probably share what I do on Instagram ( or on facebook

I’ll participate of course !

No, you can use whatever name you’d like!

Would love to be part of this highly creative gang !!Let the creative juices flow…..

I just love AEDM and am going to try hard to do something g each day this year. With two little ones, life is insane these days. All the more reason for me to take the time to get those creative muscles working again. I look forward to creating alongside all of you.

Yep, I’m in! THANK YOU!

I’m in — at the last minute!

I’m in again this year, after missing out on a couple because of LIFE. Looking forward to connecting with other creatives this month! Nina

I’m excited to be part of this!

Yiiiihaaa!!! The first time I participated was about 7 years ago! And this year… drum rolls…. my 9yo daughter will be in too!!!! She is sooooo excited!!! She might be the youngest participant but this is so her cup of tea. She gets out her pencil the minute she wakes up and she falls asleep while drawing. She invented the motto “With a pencil in hand, one can make all dreams come true”. Did I mention she is awesome? ;-)

I am so excited to create something everyday — a great form of play for me!
I will try to post of the FB page!

I’m in, thank you! I’ll be posting on instagram @sarahsaraswati

I’m in too!

This is my first time. I will really try to keep up.

I’m so delighted to join! I often see Jen Lee participate in previous years, typically I’m too late to join. so cool to jump in right in time! I most likely be posting on Instagram and occasionally the FB group.

Love this! I’m in and will posting on IG – @trayceealane

Just found this and it is November 1st. Never participated before, but I would like to challenge myself!

Going to give this a try. I never seem to be able to finish these 30 day challenges, but I’ll give it my best effort. Looking forward to seeing all the beautiful creativity.:o)

I’ve been a NaNoWriMo person but can’t commit to it this year. I’m excited to try this and be inspired by everyone’s work.

Yippee… Just what mind needs CREATIVE outlet. And technically it’s the 2nd but since I’m still awake it’s still the 1st to me. <3

Posted my first simple mandala and brush lettering for day one on Instagram. So here we go :)

Just found this, and it is november 2, I hope I still can participate.

I’m up for it.

Better late than never!

I’m in again — have done aedm for the past several years

I am so looking forward to participating in my first AEDM. I am a jewelry maker, so also cooks, paints and does needlecrafts. I my goal and desire to live life fully this challenge makes me put faith and truth to my words.

Another website, another comment! You can find us at from now on!! See you there!

I just got myself a new Cricut Maker and I’m going to put it through its paces this month by making something with it every day. I’m excited to learn all of its functions and try different materials.

I came looking for trouble after a failure of impetus for the last couple of months. Looking forward to this!

[...] 5 of AEDM! The kids are back home!  Little Brother is rediscovering the house while Big Sis Norah is talking [...]

I love this challenge, but I am only posting on Instagram and my blog! Wishing everyone a wonderfu,l creative month! Leah, thank you for being generous enough to facilitate this challenge, with all you have to keep you busy with two beautiful children! xo

Just heard about this and thought I would give it a try!

Made a new DeviantArt account, will probably post stuff there, too.

Glad to be back with this beautiful, encouraging challenge! Will share my pieces on instagram:

Hello. I’m Laura. I know this event from my friend, Novieta Tourisia. I’d love to join this EADM. this is my first. I am basically an architect, but like doodling, crafting and sometimes cooking. I want to challenge my self to be more productive everyday. I’m sure this will be fun. :)
