AEDM Day 8

Welcome to day 8 of Art Every Day Month

I often 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 post 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 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: http://creativeeveryday.com/creativeeveryday/2010/11/the-owl-and-the-pussycat.html instead of my main blog page: http://www.creativeeveryday.com. 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! 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.

Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2015 hashtag if you're playing along on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. A Facebook group has been created as yet another place to share.

Preparing for Art Every Day Month and the Survival Guide

October 23rd, 2015, Comments (3)


Art Every Day Month is right around the corner, starting on November first, and running for 30 wonderful days of creating. I want to remind you that this is a low-key challenge, so if you start and fall flat, you can pick yourself up and get back to it. Or if you find the challenge late, no worries, start where you are. Sign up post is here

I also want to remind you that I define art in the broadest sense. Your daily art might be a painting, or the beginning of one, or it might be a photo, a song, knitting, cooking, chalk drawings with your children, sculpture, poems on napkins, art journaling, crafting, dancing, etc...

People have written to me asking how they'll share their work and how they'll see the work of others. The easiest way is to come here (creativeeveryday.com) every day and look at the daily check-in post. There, people will be sharing a link (to their blog, website, flickr image, etc) to what they've worked on that day. Or if they don't have a place like this to share, they can talk about what they're up to in the comments. 

If you've joined in and are worried that you need some extra support, motivation or a daily prompt, then you can sign up for the Survival Guide, a private daily blog with prompts, encouragement, inspiration and a weekly audio exercise. 


And here's are some tips about getting ready for the month: Everyone will approach this differently. Some people like to have a project in mind they'll work on all month (like a large piece), or a specific act of creativity they'll do each day (1 photo each day), while others will do whatever they're inspired to do each day. I tend to go with the flow, but I also like to do some sketching sessions in advance, so on days when I'm feeling less than inspired, I already have some ideas ready that I'd like to explore further. And when those ideas aren't calling to me, I just begin and let my intuition be my guide. Some days the work is wonderful, some days it is not, it is all ok. What I have found is that the process of working every single day, is powerful and interesting things always come up. It's fun. And even more fun doing it with a group of people. So get excited, folks, this is going to be fun! 

Art Every Day Month 2015 Sign Up

October 5th, 2015, Comments (163)

Art Every Day Month is once again right around the corner! This will be the 14th year I have been creating daily for the month of November and inviting others to join in. It 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!

Every day I'll have a new post to share a link to what you're creating (if you have a blog or flickr account), or you can simply comment on the post and write about what you're up to there. I'll be posting my creations daily here and if you follow me on Instagram (leah_art), then you may see them there too. There's now also a Facebook group where you can share your creations as well. If you're on Instagram or Facebook you can use the hashtag #aedm2015.

Read more about the challenge here and then sign up below. Use the widget to sign up if you have a blog, flickr, or other page where you'll be sharing your Art Every Day Month creations. If you don't have a place to link to, simply comment below and say you're joining in!

The challenge begins November 1st!

This makes it easier for people to find your work.  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.

Day 30 – Snow Bird

November 30th, 2013, Comments (13)

30 days have come and gone. Amazing! Although I wish I could have gotten around to see everyone else's work more and this month was crazy busy (and crazy messy), I think this was my favorite Art Every Day Month yet. I'm excited about a lot of the work I made and even better, I was able to share the experience this month with Annabelle. It was so unexpected and lovely to create alongside her, to talk about art, and to see her love of creating grow. 

Here's Annabelle in one of the artsy activities she got up to today, now that we're back having a quiet day at home. This was moments before the cup of water tipped, water went everywhere and she was crying about wet pants. Haha. Real life. But after the dramatic clean up, she got back to it, this time choosing to draw with pencils. Much drier. :-)

Thank you all for joining me on this month of creating, whether you created one day, 10 days, 25, or all 30, I hope you enjoyed the added creativity in your life! Congratulations on all you've accomplished!!

We'll carry on with weekly check-ins (Mondays) for the Creative Every Day Challenge here, so feel free to continue on in that way if you're so inspired and definitely join me again next November for another Art Every Day Month!
