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.
104 - Draw some salt and pepper shakers
105 - Draw some scissors
106 - Draw something tart or sour
107 - Draw how you get your news - at a newsstand, vending box or on your porch
108 - Draw a light bulb
109 - Draw a clock you have around your house
110 - Draw something with a flame or flames
111 - Draw a bowl
112 - Draw something fresh
113 - Draw or paint a fence
114 - Draw something ugly you love and keep for sentimental reasons. Journal about it, too.
115 - Draw a shopping cart or basket
116 - Draw something green
117 - Draw something round
118 - Draw some hair
119 - Draw some rocks
120 - Draw a flashlight
121 - Draw a coin or some coins and journal about memories about coins from your childhood.
122 - Draw something where shade is a prominent part of the subject
123 - Draw a bell
124 - Draw something yellow
125 - Draw a bird

128 - Draw a view through a doorway from one interior room to another.
129 - Draw people doing something.
130 - Draw some school supplies.
131 - Draw a spray bottle

I'm gonna have to ponder on #103 for a while. Oy vey. That's a tough one for an old couch potato like me.

Can I borrow your 'stamp'? I think I want to give this a try this year too.

Karen Blados said...

just do some arm curls with the remote and you'll be in good shape. LOL. I might have to give this a try.

Speck said...

@Capt Elaine - Sure! Borrow away!

@Karen - That same idea hit me just a little while ago. I'll draw my forearm, hand and remote with TV in the distance. I'll title it "Thumbs of Steel!" LOL!

Yes, yes, both of you, please come and play. Liz has created a special Flickr group:
