Thank you, thank you, thank you for making it such a special one! Day 28 of 31: @64M_Artists task to create a postcard for your hometown. Maybe to invite others to visit, to share an unknown fact or to highlight its best attraction. #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists #MentalHealth #Mindfulness Day 27 of 31: @64M_Artists task to leave a present for a stranger.

Works for me #64millionartists #Thejanuarychallenge Day 31 - celebrate! I signed up to dust off my creative brain for the year ahead and I think I'm in a good place for the rest of the year! Day 31 - Celebrate #thejanuarychallenge D A Y 3 1 - Celebrate! . . . Celebration is actually in short supply today in this house. Baby J has a rotten cold and conjunctivitis (altho you wouldn’t know it from this pic) and it’s chucking it down so we’re stuck in the house. But in the spirit of #thejanuarychallenge we’ve blown up all the balloons so we can have our own party. For me this is really what the challenge has been all about - making dull January days a little bit brighter with some creative thinking and play. . . . #64millionartists #celebrate #parenting #mumlife #lifewithatoddler #wahm #creativeplay #balloons #beatthejanuaryblues Day 30 #TheJanuaryChallenge @64M_Artists. Time to celebrate. Party hat on - good to go. Day 31 celebrate ! -this is the year to celebrate women from the past who have secured our future from the archive #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists #archive #women #photography Well done everyone for making it through to the end of January! I've written a blog post about my experience of the January challenge which you may or may not care to peruse. Day 31. Celebrate. I celebrated with a walk on wild Brighton beach. I’ve really enjoyed the challenges, and have signed up for 28 Drawings Later. I’ll miss the 7am email with the day’s challenge. Thanks very much. I am very new to art, only been painting and drawing for 3 weeks and I have to admit that I have not followed the challenges, but thanks to this push start, I have created some art everyday. Here are just a few of them. Here is a collage of all my #thejanuarychallenge posts, including (top left) the cakes I intend to #celebrate with later (today's challenge!) Thank you @64millionartists - it's been amazing; I feel as if my brain has been turned inside out, washed on the hottest setting and then hung out to dry in a stiff breeze! I'll definitely be back next year! #64millionartists #dailychallenge #photomontage Day 31 #TheJanuaryChallenge Lets Celebrate... Share with #64MillionArtists 64Million artists- The January challenge Day 30 For anyone who my post yesterday of childhood memories and thought I'd gone mad saying there was a swimming pool picture I've just found it so .. this is where we were given season tickets for every year instead of Easter eggs. Water temperature varied with the tide refilling it ! Our parents really didn't like us Day 31. Celebrate! What a fantastic way To celebrate each day Here are some of my things I shared with otherlings! I'm glad I took part To help share our art With all other 64ma A different theme every day. Now it has ended My heart has blended What a wonderful way "Let's keep going", I say!!! Remember my own challenge yesterday...? Somebody actually did it, and brilliantly too. Massive thanks @derrick.armitage. . #Repost @derrick.armitage • • • This morning, @katherinemaryhill made a challenge of her own to create your own coat of arms. I thought I'd have a go! I can't say this is what I would really have if I was actually to be ennobled but, given the constraints of time and resources, I'm happy to go with this. The stag is a noble beast associated with Scotland, down to earth and steadfast. The bird represents creativity (something to which I aspire!) and a certain detachment from the mundane (!) while the stars are those things we can never reach. The motto speaks for itself! What would you choose? #whoareyou #coatofarms #thejanuarychallenge #digitalimaginings Celebrating Celebrating my love of Flowers and creativity might have to post some individually as they look better in their own The I Pad has squisshed the photos Celebrating completion of @64M_Artists #TheJanuaryChallenge the only way I now know how - with word art!

New people, new friends, new chances for chats, Their dreams, loves, aspirations and photos of cats, Sharing their feelings, some funny, some sad, All of us dealing with the good and the bad Writing poems and blurbs, creating new games, Renaming musicians and bands, with fish names. Drawing and building, till your submission was RIGHT, From 7 in the morning till very late at night. Overcoming illness and sadness, plus the evil Man Flu sickness But we’d all struggle on, with no paper, pen or glue. ‘Cos, that’s how much 64MA has meant to you. Tomorrow is February, but today is Challenge 31, The email arrives at 7 with terabytes of fun, Some of us will be sad and shed a wee tear, Put our brushes, pens and sewing kit away until next year. I hear you shout, “NO, keep them out, That’s not what 64MA is all about” You’re right, put down your coffee and tea, Embrace the arts, 365, like me. Draw a cat, bird or dog, Paint a wood, tree or log. Write a poem, play, or sonnet Knit a scarf, shawl or bonnet. Seek new groups, make new friends Sculpt a bendy thing that bends, Build a den, for someone wee, Let your artistic soul, fly free. The last Challenge is here, Some will dance. Some will cheer CELEBRATE with each other & those you hold dear I hope to hear from you all, let’s not wait till next year! Awra Best to the 64MA Family Day 31 Celebrate. Last day of the January challenge is to celebrate. I've chosen some of my favourite celebratory items that I would have had if I'd known #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists
