AEDM Catch Up List

My camera has decided that it’s not going to work anymore. It decided this about a month after my nicer digital camera bit the dust. It’s very frustrating. Work has pretty much taken all of my time lately and any energy has been zapped by the dog’s allergy issues and personal things. I’ve made time for art, but it’s been uninspired and pretty boring. I’m sorry this list won’t include photos. I’m going to see how scanning works for some of the paper crafts.

Here’s a quick photo of my knitting. You can kind of see my fingerless glove and my knitted garland/scarf.
DSCF0315Still need to photograph my drawings and the crap-tastic painting.

Yesterday, I didn’t do much. I tried to draw some more and got a couple sketches started but didn’t make much progress on them. Tonight, i’m working on prototypes of creatures for some stuffed animals and some multi-layered stencils for fabric.

This can be read several different ways, depending on how much/little you read into gendered nouns and titles and whole slew of other factors. Which word carries the emphasis for you? This is part of a series that I hope to continue across media and across a theme or two.
If you want more information on Art Every Day Month, check out Leah at Creative Every Day.
In case you’re curious, here’s what I have done so far for AEDM:
11/1 – Knitting (photos tomorrow or tonight)
11/2 – Knitting, Painting on canvass (photos coming soon)
11/3 – More Painting (photos soon)
11/4 – Digital art (see above), more knitting (in progress, no photos yet), and a bad painting (probably won’t photograph)

If you want to follow other participants in AEDM check out Creative Every Day, search for the #aedm hashtag on twitter, or check out the AEDM twitter list. Welcome to anyone who found their way here through twitter or CED! I plan to illustrate by hand tonight. If I have the energy I want to add colors and use lots of photographs to document it. I’m slacking on photos lately, but I am definitely enjoying AEDM and plan to try more extensive projects this weekend.

November is the month of Art Every Day for a Month

This year I’m participating rather than just observing everyone’s creativity like I did last year. You can find more information about Art Every Day for a Month here: and it’s not too late to join! I’m hoping that this provides a boost intelectually and creatively because I’ve been feeling a tad unchallenged and uninspired. I started yesterday and as soon as I find the one camera that works, I’ll start posting about my daily work for this. I started yesterday with some fiber arts that I am SOOO excited about. I’ll have to take a picture before I get much further and you can really tell what it is since I’m hoping that a version of the project will make a great xmas gift. If I don’t work on that again tonight, my plan is to try painting. I’ve been playing with a couple ideas in my head and sketching for awhile. It’s a medium that I’m not very comfortable in, but part of what I hope to do with taking ont his challenge/project is to push myself a little bit creatively.

It’s super grey today and it’s really zapping my energy and creativity, but writing about this here has helped a bit. 😀

Is anyone else participating? Let me know in the comments!
