Intro post: Attempt #2 at Art Every Day Month

I’ll admit, yesterday my Art Every Day Month (AEDM) started off with less of a bang and more of a whimper. But that’s okay, because I’ve decided that I’m not going to put undue stress on myself this year. Last year’s effort (chronicled briefly in previous posts) fell flat after only a few days, mostly due to the insane pace I was keeping at the time, as well as the pressure I heaped upon myself to be no less than perfect. Ridiculous and unattainable, not to mention no fun at all!!

This year I’m looking forward to day-dreaming up creative pursuits, taking photos, sharing my favorite pieces, doing a little writing, and visiting some local exhibits for inspiration. I’ll be posting sporadically: Sometimes every other day, sometimes it may be more than once in twenty-four hours. All-in-all I'm expecting attempt #2 to be a more relaxed and enjoyable experience. Join me on my month-long art journey and please tell me about your own!


  1. I totally understand when sometimes life intervenes and you just can't get to the doing art or whatever else... it's okay! The intention just has to be there...it'll all work out :) Have fun!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement Linda! For me, this month will be all about finding and savoring moments of creativity and rekindling my love of art. :)

  3. I think by setting your "intention" into the world that you are going to allow yourself creative "play" and not stress you will attain it. The energy is moving in a good way for you this year, I feel it! Enjoy the moments!
