Art Every Day Month Wrap-up and my November/December Calendars



As promised, here is my wrap up of all the things I created during the month of November.  You can see each of the photos from top left to bottom right how each day developed.   I will also post it on my Previous Collaborations page.

Although I normally sew a few quiltlets and create handmade books from recycled products, this November was mostly about finding ways to decorate book covers.  It became an obsession and I haven't tired of making them yet.  Of course, I still love to make quiltlets, but for now, you're going to see a lot more of my altered and decorated book covers.  Of course, I eco-dyed some fabric, too.

I cleaned up my herb garden and cleaned and organized my basement, which were not exactly art, but they were artful and necessary.

Once a week I hosted T Stands For Tuesday, and on the 2nd of the month, I host Second on the 2nd.  Feel free to join us with your post that you want to spotlight, too.  And for those who normally play, now is the time to dig a post out for Wednesday.

This is my completed November calendar.  I tried to pay homage to Paris, but I'm not much of a stamper.  I had some card stock I had painted autumn colors, then cut it and collaged over the pieces with snow inspired tissue.    I did this because we had an exceptionally warm autumn which turned deadly late Thursday when an ice storm hit my city.

December is ready to be filled in, and as usual, I'll decorate it depending on what is happening in my world at the time.

Thanks for visiting today, and even though AEDM is officially over, I hope to stay in touch with several of the people I visited daily.  As always, your support of my projects touches me deeply.

You did a big job for "ART Every Day "this November again... great!
Super collage for the end now! And I was pleased to see so much art for our challenges as well♥♥♥
I do also something nearly every day as you know -o.k.- I am also a little bit addicted as you maybe know.. but the fact that I MUST do it every day a whole month would make me too nervous. So I would not participate - Sounds stupid - but that is how I feel about it.
Congrats on this Elizabeth "YOU HAVE DONE" and thank you for all the hosting work for us and I am always inspired and pleased to visit you!
So for me you can continue ART EVERY DAY - or posting every day -- please!

A big "Congratulations!" for completing this AED month with such lovely art! I know for sure I could never do this! I love your Paris tribute page! I am preparing mine at the moment - just having a break! We have just seen 'Storm Clodagh' go through the UK - quite a lot of wind damage but the temperatures are due to go up to 13 degrees tomorrow! I am ready for the 2nd and almost ready for T!!! Keep Warm! Hugs, Chrisx

Thanks for the wonderful comments over the last 30 days. Hopefully it won't be November before I'm back again!

What a very busy time you had in November - but then you always seem to be a busy lady, so I'll amend and say that November seems to have been exceptionally busy for you. You created some beautiful art and achieved so many things.
I hope you stay warm and safe and carry on creating! :D :D
