It’s November, again. Last November we were packing to move to Florida so anything that I regularly did this time of year went right out the window. Usually I followed Inktober with Art Every Day Month. I didn’t last year.
I am settled at the moment in our garage. We had plans to build a studio in our backyard but after much discussion, I suggested we wait. I don’t like creating in the garage but I guess it’s better than the kitchen table.
Where did the Dragon go? He’s around. I think he’s digging a hole out back.
OK, so what is Art Every Day Month? AEDM was created by Leah Kolidas. I found out about AEDM from Kelly Rae Roberts, many years ago. In a nutshell, all you have to do is create every day. It’s very simple. You don’t have to finish something every day; you use this month to focus on a project. It can be ANYTHING. It can be sewing, or crocheting. It can be a painting or drawing. You can write poetry or write a story. The idea is in this busy time leading into the holidays, you take the time to do something creative, for you. It’s actually liberating to create for the sake of creating. There’s no popularity contest like some of these on line challenges, there is just you and whatever you decided to tackle. Each day, you post what you did either on Facebook or you post it to your blog, if you have one, and link to Leah’s AEDM blog.

So what did I do today? I prepped by daily page for the week and I added today’s entry for last week. I work Monday through Sunday so today ends the previous week.
Here is my two page spread with last week and this week…
That’s it. Easy Breezy. No fanfare. No competition. I created something.
This isn’t the only thing I did today, but this is an excellent example of what AEDM is.
Try it. Create.
