art every day month #30/list it tuesday 11/30: back on track

this-week

last day of art every day month! a big thanks to leah for being a terrific host and helping me put that spark of spontaneity back into my hours. now i have to pull my head out of the art and attend the daily affairs i've neglected over the past thirty days. thus, a rather boring list for this week - it's time to get back on track. i haven't even bothered to get yesterday's mail out of the box. same with the newspaper. but the biggie this week is the drivers' license and i cannot blame that one on art every day month because i've been shoving off the task for four years. the problem is, it seems to be a curse - every time i get legal in a state, we wind up moving. if i had been smart i would have held on to my arizona license, which i got in 1996 and was valid until 2030. can you imagine that, my 25 year old mug on the license of a 60 year old? next up is resuming work on a wedding commission - i'm handlettering the invitations, programs, table signs, the works. i don't do commissions very often because they usually make me distraught, but this one has been a SUPER fun job. forgot to include "re-introduce self to family" on this list, too - that goes to the top! if you made a list today, please leave your link in the comments. happy tuesday and thanks to everyone who kept me afloat during AEDM!

Here's my list: http://fluffyland.com/blog/index.php/2010/list-it-tuesday-accomplishments/

your art every day has been very inspiring to witness. what's even more impressive to me, though, is the fact that you blogged it every day! definitely double credit to you, there.

I gotta join in the list thing some day. Soon. Promise.

The coffee stain made me giggle.

Congrats on the AEDM- I might give that a go sometime since it sounds like a great way to kick start some art making!
After going MIA on the online scene for the better part of November, I'm back and have a post for your List It Tuesday- "Breaking My Book Buying Addiction"

looks like a lot of things going on in your list. Mine reads more like a report, and not too personal. http://www.storybeader.com/2010/11/list-it-tuesday-1130-celebrating.html

Biomouse said...

so I'm playing today, it's just going to take me till this evening to post since my camera is at home and my cell phone camera takes a few hours for the pictures to hit my online album. Blah blah yak yak, all yammering aside, I'll share just as soon as I can!

You've inspired me as well to try AEDM next time too, and yay for you and new orders in the shoppy shop!

I finally participated in list it Tuesday! I've been saying I would since it started...

Liberty said...

I'm finally taking part! I never seem to be able to write one by hand, photo it, upload, edit etc in time so I used Windows Paint today to make a list of Christmas-y things I want to do:

Woot! You rock, Aimee! So glad you joined in AEDM this year and that you had some spontaneous fun along the way. :-)

Khrista said...

I love this idea! Your lists are fabulous! Love your lettering and use of colors! :)
Here is MY list. :)

Christine E-E said...

i wasn't able to post a list... work is driving me buggers! but i'm happy to have a job... so i keep repeating my mantra, "i appreciate my work, colleagues & my drive past the gorgeous, blue ocean on my way to work"... i know if i didn't have someplace to go each day, i would probably isolate myself - sit in front of the computer - and grow a big(ger) b-tt than ever...
as always, your work is an inspiration to me & lots of others!

~Barb~ said...

Aimee...I have been doing List it Tuesday for the past few weeks but keep forgetting to leave a note. It would figure that today of all days I am actually letting you know. Oh, and I link to you with each list, too. Just fyi.
Peace & Love,
Barb
