Two New Challenges

I found two really cool challenges while I was blog hopping this evening, one which I will be participating in, one which I just don't think I can manage.

First the one I won't be participating in ... Art Every Day Month, although I think it's a cool idea. There are a variety of reasons why I won't be participating. One, I'm in an artistic slump. Two, I'm hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year. What difference does that make, you ask? Well, I don't have a dedicated art space, so I tend to do art at the dining room table. Since I'm already six days down and I'd have to miss a week during Thanksgiving, it seems silly to make a commitment to make art everyday. Plus, I don't have a scanner or a reliable digital camera (Am I the last person in the civilized world?) so posting pictures of my work would be problematic. But I plan on following the web site and checking out the Flickr group.

Now the challenge I am participating in ... National Blog Posting Month. The challenge is to post to your blog everyday during the month of November. Well, I've already messed that up, but I can post everyday from here on out. It's really something I intend to do anyway, post everyday. Now, I just have more impetus.

Good luck! I get lazy in the fall, so NaBloPoMo is always a great kick in the butt for me.

I found you through the NaBloPoMo Randomiser and just wanted to say hello!

Art Every Day is a cool blog. I hadn't seen that one before. I'm not even going to try posting to my blog every day. Can't do it. :)
Thanksgiving will be over soon and you can get back to art, right??

Hi! I came over from NaBloPoMo. I'm challenging myself to comment on as many blogs as possible this month as well as post.

Yes, Thanksgiving would be a little challenging with art all over the table. Perhaps you could just ask everyone to sit on the floor with their plates balanced on their knees? Did no one else ever eat Thanksgiving dinner like that?

Happy Posting!
