Every Day in May 2011
I've got my stamp carved for this year. I am ready to go on the Every Day in May (EDiM) Challenge for 2011.
Last year Liz Steele gathered up a group of folks to work through the Everyday Matters (EDM) challenges, #1 through #31, for each day as part of the EDiM challenge. It was fun drawing the same thing each day as a bunch of other folks. What a hoot!
I didn't quite make that goal last year because I was out of town for 10 days of the month. I drew *something* every day. That's all that's really required for the EDiM challenge in general, but I didn't get all the EDM challenges drawn. Oh well.
Here are the challenges this year. Liz is starting at EDM #101 for May 01 and working down the list to EDM #131.
101 - Draw a bar of soap
102 - Draw a power plug
103 - Draw some exercise equipment - what you use to stay fit.
