November CDAs – Fire on High

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“Fire on High” was the theme for November’s CDAs… and I was a little stumped with this topic. However, the more I thought about it the more I got excited. I sorted through images of sun reflections, Aurora dancing in the Northern sky and I captured images of details of my work created over the years. In the end I had more “Fire on High” than days in the month… a good thing as I could pick and choose a little.

And what now? December is upon us – December with its twinkling lights, sparkling Christmas trees, carefully prepared delicious foods and celebrations with friends and family. Is it a surprise that the theme for the 12th month of the Creative Daily Challenge (CDA) for 2014 is …. (drum roll please!) …. “Putting on the Glitz”? Come and join us for 31 more days of creativity! If you just want to participate for this one month… here are the rules once more.

    Hi Anna, I didn’t want to look at your Nov, CDA’s until I had mine up because I had a sense that you would do Aurora Borealis too. You did and they are stunning. I love the stitching, each one is a work of art.

    I would love to be included for 2015, Anna. I too have found the need for a daily act of creativity, since I stopped my “colouring book” a couple of years ago, once I felt it had run its course. The idea of switching the focus to fibre, while still allowing other, works for me. Is the specific size critical, or just those general proportions? I like it when a challenge introduces an element that is specific.


    • Susanne,
      The challenge was officially issued on January 1st 2014 for this year. I am not planning to repeat this for 2015 – as my commitments for 2015 are already a bit overwhelming. I encourage you to forge ahead, set yourself themes, or repeat the themes set for 2014. It makes for a full year and sharing images of the small creations is a wonderful way to connect with others who are involved with the same project.

    Hi Anna, Wow, I love this concept, but not sure if I can actually do one a day, but maybe my personal challenge would be to put out 3 pieces a week. I won’t actually be in your challenge, per se, but at least I’ll be doing something. I don’t have the capability to post or down load my work, but maybe my granddaughter can help me with this. I loved your slide-show. Please let me know what’s up for each month, or is this just ongoing throughout the year? Thanks so much, cheers, Lynne Sward (From Virginia Beach, Virginia)


    • Hi Lynne,
      The Creative Daily Act Challenge started last January – it was conceived by my friend Elinor and me during a very cold Christmas with lots of creative energy and ideas swirling in our heads… We issued the challenge to anyone who had interest and although I am at this time only committed to the end of December 2014 it is my sincere hope that the challenge is something that will continue. – Don’t worry about not being able to create one small work a day… if you do one creative act a month you are successful. It’s all about being creative and spreading the word! Participate as much or as little for as long as you like. Do share with us what you create! I am so excited to hear from you all the way from Virginia! I am heading to Hampton, VA at the end of February… maybe our paths will cross!


  5. Thanks for the early morning delight. Fire on High send the senses reeling for me. Leona
