Here it is November 1st and Art Every Day for the month of November has begun. This is a wonderful way to encourage your creativity and make time for art.

Leah Piken Kolidas of Creative Every Day has hosted AEDM for several years and  provides much support and encouragement. It is also a wonderful community of artists.

I will be taking part, as I have for the past couple of years. As I wrote about on Sunday, I will be creating a set of quote cards, with my art and quotes that have meaning to me.
This is my first one:

I also quickly carved a new stamp - just an abstract with straight lines to get me back into carving. I want to continue work on my course and on stamp carving this month.

While visiting Collage Diva, I came across this very interesting twist on tracking your gratitudes.
Lauren Tober is hosting a daily  photograph challenge.

 As she says:

"What ever your camera of choice, come November, fire it up and start photographing the things that make you the most grateful"

I love this idea and as I am already writing out what I am grateful for most nights, I am going to add this element of photographing what I am grateful for each day.

Today I am most grateful for art - that it definitely feeds the soul.

I will not be posting daily, but will most likely post on Sundays as part of my Sunday Weekly Wrap-up.

I'm doing a lino printing workshop on Saturday and I will bear in mind your stamp idea. I love it's simple lines.
You've got some lovely collage work on your page. Glad I've seen it.

Love the stamp... something I've not ever been brave enough to try yet! Love the geometrical shape.
