Creative Every Day Check-In: December 30 – January 5

December 29th, 2013, Comments (3)

Sorry for the delay today folks! Holidays got away with me! This weekly check-in post is a place for Creative Every Day Challenge participants to share their creative activities. I've been up to some holiday crafting in the last week and I'll be sharing pictures this week! 

Join in the Challenge: You can sign-up for the 2014 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) or flickr image of your creative activities during the days of 12/30/13 - 1/5/13. 

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. There is sometimes a slight delay in your link/image showing up in the Mr. Linky widget, so if you don't see it immediately, check back in a little bit.

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: December's totally optional theme is Celebrate, which you read more about here

Happy Creating!

Holiday Craftiness

December 16th, 2013, Comments (5)

I've been getting into the Holiday spirit this year! So much more fun with Annabelle. We did reindeer thumbprint ornaments, a handprint tree, and then I did a tinsel garland, and a ruffle tree skirt. So thankful for Pinterest and it's wealth of crafty ideas I can adapt to work for us!

Day 7, Flight

November 7th, 2013, Comments (12)

Tried to keep it simple and a little smaller today as I'm not feeling fantastic (just a cold). This was inspired by an Instagram picture I took last month, when a large group of birds zoomed through my yard. The picture was a daytime one, but I made the painting at night. 

Earlier in the day, I did a little raking and Annabelle had a blast jumping in the "Annabelle leaf pile" and "helping" me rake. It was cute. She was having so much fun with the leaves that we took a few in and I showed her how to do leaf rubbings. This picture is of her concentrating really hard, trying to trace a leaf. 

Day 1: The Search

November 1st, 2013, Comments (21)

Hooray! Art Every Day Month has begun! I hope everyone had a good experience today. If not, tomorrow is a new day. For today's art, I had to squeeze my painting into a short nap, then finish up in the evening. I let this one just happen and here's what came out. It's called "The Search." I like the constellations, which were a sudden inspiration that I enjoyed running with. The piece is 8"x8" with acrylic and ink on panel. 

The cutest thing happened today. I was out running errands with my 2.5 year old daughter, Annabelle and told her for the first time about Art Every Day Month. Her response: "I want to do art every day too!" Haha! I thought we might do AEDM together someday, but wasn't quite expecting it so soon! We are definitely creative every day together, it's impossible not to be, but to consciously think about creating each day together might be an interesting challenge. I'm not sure we'll have time each day to do and document something, but we will as often as we can. Today we made a necklace. She picked the order of the beads and strung the round ones. She was quite pleased with her creation. :-)
