Well I'm just about finished with AEDM , it went by so fast and I'm really glad I pushed myself to do this challenge, it was a lot of fun.
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Art Every Day Month-part three

more drawings for AEDM, my focus is to do seven drawings a week, so if I miss a day I do more than one the next day because I just wasn't able to do it everyday. My main focus in this sketchbook is doing flower borders and ideas for little labels and things and it has helped to have the focus of this project and to blog about it once a week.  It's been a lot of fun and now I have just one week left...

more art journaling...

in what I like to think of as my big girl coloring book, a place to doodle and write and draw and just have fun. I tend to loose track of time when I'm playing in this journal. I like searching for quotes to add in as well.

Art Every Day Month:part two

A few more pages from Art Every Day Month, I missed a few days but then got back on track. I'm really enjoying doing little drawings with an autumn thanksgiving feel to them, I usually draw flowers all of the time so this is something different and fun, it is my favorite time of year after all...

Fall craft projects

This week I worked on a couple of fall craft projects inspired by other blogs, like these little mushrooms made out of acorns found here and a felt leaf garland from Pam Garrisons blog that was a lot of fun, mine is smaller than hers so it really didn't take very long. She also has another version of a fall garland found here, so I might try that one too. I love making crafts at this time of year, it must be something about the cooler days, it's just very relaxing.

Art Every Day Month

Through other blogs I found out about a project called Art Every Day Month which Leah Piken hosts on her blog every November. I should have done a post earlier if anyone is interested in taking part, but you can join at any time and the goal is just to do something creative everyday. I like this project because I'm not usually good at doing a project everyday, and I decided to work in my idea sketchbook  right now I'm doing drawings inspired by fall and Thanksgiving. I'll try and do a post once a week or so and hopefully I can stay with the project the whole month.

on my desk right now...

I just bought a set of three moleskine notebooks and I painted the front of one with roses and will use it for notes, lists, and ideas and it's sitting on top of my new Russell and Hazel binder that just arrived from amazon. I am a little obsessed with binders and notebooks and organizers and I love looking at how other people set up there binders and that is how I found out about this one, which I really love. It's thin and covered in light blue linen and I can't wait to organize it and use it.
