View Full Version : Next Collage-a-thon Dates… pick one please!

05-10-2009, 11:03 AM
June 5 - 7
June 26 – 28 ***Correct dates... it is the whole weekend***
July 17 – 19
July 25 – 27

When should we hold the next collage-a-thon?

Note that the “all-types-of-art”-a-thon will be held June 19-21 and the Zentangle-a-thon is scheduled for July 10-12.

If there are any other a-thons that have been scheduled, let me know and I’ll adjust dates.

oops! :eek: I forgot to add the poll part... let's see if I can fix it.

Jjuly 17-19 would be best, for me at least!

05-10-2009, 12:16 PM
Either of the July weekends works for me because I'd like to have time to make cards to trade at AFA in Indy. Then I will probably need time to recover from it.

05-10-2009, 01:10 PM
The late the better! I can't make it that first weekend in June,,,

05-10-2009, 05:37 PM
Truth telling time....I seem to get further behinder the faster time flies so I am always late and so any time is as good as another...though first weekend in June I will be gone....

05-11-2009, 11:44 AM
Anyone else have a date preference?

05-11-2009, 02:56 PM
June 5 - 7 is OK (and coming quite soon), July 17 – 19 is OK (I have no idea what I'm doing then), but July 25 – 27 is maybe the best date

05-12-2009, 10:59 PM
I'd love to have one in June as I'll be gone most of July.

05-12-2009, 11:41 PM
would like a July date... hope to do the All type in June... and really don't work too fast.
slow moving gal here....

05-13-2009, 11:02 AM
Oh looky! Carole figured out how to add the poll... so come vote. :D

05-14-2009, 10:35 AM
I'm leaning toward the end of July, myself. We'll have the mid-June "all-types-of-art"-a-thon to play in and then have an end of July Collage-a-thon....

But that's just me ;)

05-15-2009, 06:48 AM
I am going to stamp camp at the end of July....

05-15-2009, 08:23 AM
i just want another one :)

05-15-2009, 12:51 PM
Could we have one at the beginning of June and one at the end of July :laugh:.

05-15-2009, 03:21 PM
The rest of you must work a lot faster than me. I am still tired from the last CAT we just had. That's why I picked the last weekend in July.

05-15-2009, 03:42 PM
I could play once per month :). But CAT and SAT during the same month was quite much. But not too much :D.

05-15-2009, 08:11 PM
So if we did one the first weekend of June, and one the last weekend of July... and have the all-types-of-art on June 19-21... is that totally crazy? Can I keep up? LOL!

05-16-2009, 12:52 AM
I don't think tat everyone can play everytime but we could have better chances to find a good weekend. I know that I can't play in the all-types-of-art on June 19-21, maybe someone else can't play at the beginning of June etc. How many players we need to get this working? There can be some new players too (PoetBoy is coming to play, I think).

05-24-2009, 11:38 AM
Have we decided when we'll have our next CAT?

05-24-2009, 10:44 PM
We haven't decided yet. We are really close on three dates... anyone else have a vote?

05-24-2009, 10:52 PM
Is the June 28th weekend really just one day? Poll says June 28th to 28th--guessing it should be 26th to 28th? Or, is it just one day? Not trying to be picky...just clarifying!

05-24-2009, 11:24 PM
It's whatever that weekend is... so yes, June 26-28. Funny that no one noticed until now... LOL! :D

05-25-2009, 04:02 AM
Can I change my vote? The situation is changing all the time here. I need to be at home all the weekend June 5-7 and it would be perfect to make CAT cards them :). I know, it's coming very soon.

05-25-2009, 04:55 AM
It's whatever that weekend is... so yes, June 26-28. Funny that no one noticed until now... LOL! :D

Leave it to me...I always seem to catch those minor details...it's a curse! LOL. I thought that it was probably the case that it was the whole weekend, but had to double-check! Didn't want to vote for it, if it was just a measly day....gotta have a whole weekend! LOL

05-25-2009, 12:59 PM
So hey everyone... what if we did a mini-CAT Jun 5-7?
I don't know how much time I'll have to play, but can play a bit and can get the thread started and all that.

AND then also do one the weekend of July 25... it's actually July 24-26... I got that date wrong too... where's my proof reader? LOL!

Let me know... Jun 5-7 is fast approaching!

05-25-2009, 01:00 PM
Sounds veeeeery good, helen!

05-25-2009, 11:06 PM
Most of the swaps and trades I have will be done by then so I might be able to play for a bit. I guess if I don't trade them, I can take them to Artforall!

05-26-2009, 01:23 AM
Anyone else have an opinion on having a mini CAT June 5-7? And full fledged one the weekend of July 25?

05-26-2009, 03:28 AM
I tried to understand who could play:
mrubyjean says June is the best time
Just Ducky can maybe play (she didn't say she can't play :))
Chardonnay1965 is not here at the end of July, maybe she can play better now
sweetest-sin just wants another CAT (no matter when)
GoldenWolf can mini-play :)
sniisk (me) can play anyway
And there is at least you HCC
And I know two other (new players) who might want to play

There should be about ten players then. Is it a mini-CAT or how any players there are usually? Anyway, as sweetest-sin said, I just want to play :).

05-26-2009, 11:07 AM
Actually, a CAT is a CAT is a CAT... ;)

05-26-2009, 09:13 PM
I can play in both! I loved doing the May CAT:D

05-26-2009, 09:21 PM
I'll try to play on June 26-28 if I'm not to tired from A4A.... July would be best for me! HHC I play CAT if you play MAT deal? :biglaugh:

Just Ducky
05-27-2009, 12:19 AM
I just looked and guess I hadn't voted .. so my vote will be for the last of July...
a mini ??? first weekend June ??? a practice play day ??? sounds good too...

05-27-2009, 12:30 AM
Seeking, I'd love to play in a Melt-a-thon (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10255)! Deal!

05-27-2009, 12:40 AM
Okay, it looks like July 24-26 is the weekend for the next CAT

Remember, there's an All-types-of-art-a-thon on June 19-21 for those of us who can't go to the Art for All in Indy, or the UK Artfest.

Also a Zentangle-a-thon July 10-12

And if enough of you want a CAT the weekend of June 5-7, clamor for it now, or forever hold your peace. LOL! :D

05-27-2009, 01:30 AM
There's also a Chunky-a-thon this weekend.

05-27-2009, 05:39 AM
Isn't about 10 artists playing in June 5-7 enough?

05-27-2009, 08:02 AM
Usually people join up who haven't been posting to the choose a date thread too.

05-27-2009, 10:24 AM
Usually people join up who haven't been posting to the choose a date thread too.

I thought the same.

05-27-2009, 02:29 PM
June would be better I think... I'm moving on July :)

05-28-2009, 02:36 PM
Okay, okay... we'll do a CAT on June 5 - 7.

But here's my little stipulation... I'll post the thread, and since I'm not sure how much time I will be able to be online, Sniisk and GoldenWolf will help with co-hosting and keep the thread moving along. Is that a deal? ;)

05-28-2009, 03:46 PM
As long as co-hosting requires no more technical expertise than posting to the thread, I'm good. Not sure that I will make as many cards as usual, but dropping in and posting throughout the weekend is no problem.

05-29-2009, 12:25 AM
It just involves posting to the thread and being around on occasion throughout the weekend. I figure between three of us, we can keep it pretty well covered. ;)

Oh, by the way, all three upcoming events have been posted on the site calendar.

05-29-2009, 03:10 AM
Sounds so good! And I'm working with computers so I think I can help if someone needs help.

05-31-2009, 11:35 AM
Unfortunately I will be away from the 5th of June until the 13th so will not be able to play next weekend, but willl be there for the next one...

05-31-2009, 11:39 AM
Can't wait to see you playing with us in July, Gerry! Have fun where ever you be the week.

05-31-2009, 12:19 PM
I'm hoping I'll have time to play. Always so much fun, and a chance to trade with some of my fave collagers! :wubclub:

05-31-2009, 12:19 PM
Oh, and great hosting teamwork!

05-31-2009, 12:45 PM
Thanks to everyone for figuring all this out and to HHC, sniisk and Goldenwolf for offering to host alot of collage-a-thoning in June! I expect to be participarting on both June 5-7 and June 25-27.

05-31-2009, 12:50 PM
June 25-27.

Do you mean July? And actually, it's 24th-26th :) (found it from the calendar thread).

06-01-2009, 11:33 AM
I'm looking forward to the June CAT. I've got it on my calendar and will be joining the fun.

06-01-2009, 01:14 PM
Good heavens! Do you realize that the next one is THIS weekend? :eek: LOL.

I will have the thread up by Thursday morning. Yay for collage-a-thons!

06-01-2009, 02:55 PM
And we are getting more and more partisipants :). Maybe this will be a mega-CAT!

Joni Owens
06-02-2009, 12:19 PM
Ok, here's the deal with me - I WANT TO PLAY!!! But SHHHHHHHH don't say it too loud. The times I've played I haven't been able to give it my full attention. If I make a decision to play - something called LIFE (aka my kids, Jerry, etc.) steps in and needs/demands some of my CAT weekend time. SOOOOO - I'm not voting - ya'll pick and I'm gonna pretend I'm not interested and maybe the world will leave me alone that weekend and the muse will work double time!!!

06-02-2009, 12:20 PM
thanks sniisk for letting me know this coming weekend....just hope I can catch up on past due commitments....have been sorting quilting fabrics so may have to offer fabrics in trade instead of finished atcs....

06-02-2009, 12:22 PM
This is really going to be a mega-CAT! So many players. Can't wait... But under 70 hours to go... :)

06-02-2009, 09:44 PM
Hey y'all... do we want to do a theme and challenge? And if so, what sounds good to you?

Just Ducky
06-02-2009, 10:08 PM
hay for me and this duck... doing the weekend C.A.T. is a challenge enough.
I am going to start in the morning getting me some background and backing put together.
my theme is.......total mess....
but looking forward to a 3 hostess carry-on... sounds like fun a comin....

06-02-2009, 10:10 PM
Ducky, you make me laugh! :laugh:

Just Ducky
06-02-2009, 10:41 PM
yea... a lil' Ducky feather under the chin can do that.....:v_spin:

06-03-2009, 03:48 AM
I haven't used to use themes and don't want to "limit" your creativity :). I love travelling themes, and wings!

06-03-2009, 12:32 PM
Okay, the thread is up. Theme is travel, challenge is 3 or more "layers".


06-28-2009, 05:39 PM
I plan to play in the July CAT, though probably only for Friday because I have a wedding to go to Saturday and my birthday on Sunday.
