I am gearing up to join Leah and many others for "Art Every Day" month which has been taking place in Blogland and studios around the world every November for the last seven years. The rules are ridiculously simple: create (or work on) something artsy every day for a month. Now I tried a similiar challenge back in May and while I didn't create something every single day (aside from my daily journaling), I did fulfill a vow to begin blogging more regularly. Even partial participation in this sort of challenge can have lasting, positive effects but I am determined to make it through the month this time around. It'll be tough...no question about that, especially with lots of monkey wrangling thrown in for good measure but I really, really want to spend a month immersed in the artistic life. I suppose I do that now but for one month I want to do it and document it and truly appreciate all that my life encompasses each day. November - the month of thankfulness - is perfect for such an endeavor. Won't you join me?
