Second on the 2nd: honoring Art Every Day Month (AEDM)

Because I'm participating in Art Every Day Month (AEDM), this, my November post, is two hours earlier than normally scheduled.  Future posts will return to the scheduled time.

I thought I would bring back AEDM from November last year.

Here is a look at all 30 days in order.  As I explained, in my original post, I hope this gave you a general idea of the kinds of art I make on my blog.

You might be able to see that I rusted, as well as eco-dyed fabric, participated in Craft Barn's Quotes and/or Lyrics challenge, made several pages dealing with Argentina in my 7 Continents AB (which is an imaginary journey to all the continents), hosted T Stands For Tuesday, altered some playing cards (won't be doing that again any time soon), made some Journal 52 pages, spent time in my front flower bed, shared an organization tip or two, had everyone laughing when I joined Friday Smiles, met a challenge or two at Moo-Mania, shared several poems at the now defunct Poetry Journal Monthly, and created a few Christmas gifts.

Although I've participated in AEDM every year for the previous three years, 2014's was the only mosaic I made.

Thanks for visiting, thanks for your lovely comments, and thanks to those of you who have joined me for AEDM throughout the month of November the past three years.

 Now it's your turn to bring back a post that you are especially proud of, or one you shared before anyone knew your blog existed.  Then link below and Bleubeard and I, along with other Second on the 2nd friends, will be by to visit.  If you are new to Second on the 2nd, and your blog post permits only GOOGLE+ responses, I (and several others) can´t comment on your entry.  It's all in the way you set up your blog responses.

Today is Day 2 of AEDM and I created a link-up party and brought back a mosaic of AEDM from November, 2014.

I confess I am having trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that it is NOVEMBER already :-)

I love the montage of November pieces. I love how you do this- going back and seeing where I was in the past is always kind of inspiring. You made some beautiful things yourself...and it is fun to see how the world was inspiring you. Have a great day!
