it is almost December-can you believe it?!? Which is leading to . . . December Daily Art. In the Past I used to do December Daily Albums, December Daily Journals etc.-which I loved-but creating a whole Page each Day during the busy Time of December is a struggle sometimes-more often than not I fell behind-and eventually fell off the bandwagon along the Way . . . do not ask how many unfinished December Daily Books I have in my Drawers (I could call them December Weeklys instead of December Dailys-that would be a better fit).
So . . . I was thinking what I want to do this Year-I still felt the urgent need to do SOMETHING-to push myself to create daily during december-because especially in this busy time of Year for me it is important to take some ME-TIME each Day-and even if it is only 10 Minutes-take some time out of the busy Day and create SOMETHING with having some festive Tunes playing in the Background and a Cup of Hot Chocolate at my Side . . . so I came up with this Idea of an Advent Calendar-but not one where you open a tiny Door each Day to reveal a cute Image or some Chocolate-but one where I fill in a tiny Spot each Day-where I create a small piece of Art each Day . . . so by the end of the 24 Days leading up to Christmas I will have a whole Piece of December Daily Art reflecting my Month of December (well-up till December 24th-or December 25th if you are in a Country celebrating on the 25th).
I will create with Watercolors, Markers, Pens, Ink, Colored Pencils etc.-feel free to fill your Calendar in any Way & any Style you like and you feel like using . . . mix Supplies, work as simple or as detailed as you like-you could also add some Photos for some Days or Ephemera (Ticket Stub from visiting a Christmas Market etc.)-possibilities are endless-for me it was just important that it is something small & doable for each Day-something that does not take up to much time so we will be able to dedicate the needed time for it each & every Day without feeling guilty-no matter how busy the Day was / gets . . . ð
In the little Video following I will explain and share how I prepare my âCalendarâ-very simple and easy-and I hope it will inpire you to join me and create your own Artsy Advent Calendar . . .
