art every day month

It's still not too late to sign up for this brilliant project, run by Leah at Creative Every Day.

Inspired by NaNoWriMo (who could possibly not be?) she decided to do something similar for art, and so Art Every Day Month has been running for six years now.

Typically, I've only just discovered it, but - Hallelujah! - I've found it just in time, so I've signed up, and am really looking forward to the challenge, motivation and encouragement to produce something artistic every day.

Importantly, it's not about stress, competition or anxiety - we can all do without that - so I'll quote Leah here to reassure you if you're feeling panicked:

"The idea is to bring more creativity into your life, not to make you feel overwhelmed, pressured or guilt-stricken. Art is also loosely defined here. I mean art in the sense of anything creative, whether that be painting, drawing, knitting, sewing, cooking, decorating, writing, photography, clay, jewelry-making or whatever!"

Fancy joining in? (Or perhaps you've got a novel in you? If so, hurry over and sign up for NaNoWriMo!)

I'm excited!
