I jot down my post numbers so I can get back and edit them more quickly as cards get traded.

I use the same method. Quick & easy. The problem is, if someone decides to remove her posts and the numbers of the posts will be changed.

Thanks for the tip Golden Wolf - good idea!

Mardemoomika- I hope your Migraine goes away soon!

Well... nothing more is coming from me tonight. I've taken a half dose of Nyquil and it's starting to take effect so I'm off to bed. The best thing is that I don't work tomorrow, so potentially could really have quality time to create. :D

Good night all!

03-21-2010, 02:23 AM
Good morning from Finland. So beautiful cards for everyone. First I have to get birch logs and warm up our baking oven. After that I can settle down for creating new cards. :)

03-21-2010, 02:42 AM
whew, i just read the entire thread and i love what everyone's creating! :notworthy:
a big thanks to sniisk for sending a message about the CAT; i've been so preoccupied with other stuff that i wouldn't have noticed it otherwise.
i've been collaging backgrounds this weekend with international postage stamps and diagrams/illustrations from an old dictionary...i went through this entire massive dictionary cutting out weird stuff over the past couple months, and now it all needs to be put to use...there's no telling whether i'll finish actual cards or not by tomorrow evening. I woke up covered in hives, and it's getting worse, so I'm not going to do any trades until I can see a doctor and be 100% certain that it isn't contagious! But that isn't stopping me from collaging right along with you all and enjoying the thread.

03-21-2010, 03:00 AM
Here again... It takes always longer and longer to go through this thread :).

03-21-2010, 03:35 AM
hi all not sure if anyone is interested but I started a thread in the lounge to find out if anyone is interested in playing in an a-thon over the Easter weekend..please check it out and comment if your interested..:)

03-21-2010, 04:00 AM
Lorraine, who doesn't want to play??

03-21-2010, 04:17 AM
LOL,,Sanna..I'm not sure how many people will be around..:)

03-21-2010, 04:22 AM
But if it is not media limited there will be many more players. For example, this is just collage thread and will keep other artist in their own threads. And if you are going to host all four days maybe one can play on Friday and another on Saturday etc.

03-21-2010, 04:22 AM
Here are another 2 and the final 2 in the Papillon series.

Papillon #3 - Napkin, acrylic pearlescent medium, collage images, acrylic gloss gel medium, gold leafing pen - availabe

Papillon #4 - Napkin, acrylic pearlescent medium, collage images, acrylic gloss gel medium, gold leafing pen - availabe

03-21-2010, 04:29 AM

Good morning! Lots of lovely art. I'm still trying to wake up this morning...

03-21-2010, 11:21 AM
Hi Helen! Do you have free day or are you working again?

03-21-2010, 11:24 AM
well my muse ended up going to dinner with my handsome husband and then crashing ... so ... off to work in a bit ... doubt I'll get anything done to trade, but I will be working on some trades for ArtFest, at least I'll get some art done!

03-21-2010, 11:25 AM
Hi sniisk... I'm free today! yippee!

03-21-2010, 11:39 AM
Hope to see you here more next time Julie!

Yay, Helen, can't wait to see what you'll make today :).

My computer wants to take a break now. I'll be back here after an hour or two.

03-21-2010, 12:12 PM
Good Morning Lovely Ladies! I'm hoping to carve out some collaging time today!

good grief... Sanna, you are ONE cut and pasting gal.... I would be under the ground if I ever made as many cards as you have this weekend... and they ALL so great...

and Kristin, dang gal, how you come up with so many great ideas for cards... I have a sore neck, from looking at my (needs painting) ceiling... thinkin' and then thinkin'

everyone has shown some great stuff this weekend... I could never have cards for all the ones I would like to trade for...

Just Ducky
03-21-2010, 03:02 PM
this DUCk is done... turn me off... final 5 from me ... lots of fun, always...

well nuts... I forgot to load them in my gallery...:mad: ok I will BE BAck...

03-21-2010, 03:02 PM
Ducky, I started on Thursday about 6 pm and I have been crafting most of my time after that :). But I enjoy this. I am slow to make cards. I need to spend a lot of time.

03-21-2010, 03:06 PM
Awhile ago I bought some clip art CDs and they sat and sat but now I'm actually using them. I print off several sheets of images about the right size for ATCs and once they are all cut out I group the ones that are similar and free associate the rest. For example my time to celebrate ATC - the images have nothing in common but together they made me think of the phrase "time to celebrate" so I went with it. Sometimes a quote will tell me what images to look for. I do most of my cutting at night while I'm watching TV so when these "athons" roll around I have my images ready to go. Gotta say I'm starting to lose steam and I'm about out of all the clip art that I had ready to go. It's been fun to have more days this time though.:)

03-21-2010, 03:09 PM
I have under three hours left here. I'll finish some cards but then it was my CAT. It was almost too fun and one extra day for me was very relaxing.

03-21-2010, 03:11 PM
So many pretty new cards today!! i need to get busy so i can do some more trading! working on some more quilled cards today!

03-21-2010, 03:14 PM

Unfortunately I have to give in for now. I have migrein again :( so I have to go sleep that I could go to school early in the morning. Thank you all especially Helen and Sanna. This was very wonderful again.

03-21-2010, 04:25 PM
Thank you, MardeMoomika, for playing again! It's always nice to have more players from Europe playing at the same time and specially have another player from Finland :). Sleep well and hope your migraine will be gone in the morning!

hi all, so I went out Friday night and then skiing all day yesterday instead of arting, but if I can drag my wobbly legs into the art cave, I would like to slap together a few more collages before times up here in AK. Be back soon with something {I hope}

These are my last cards. It has been so much fun. I have trades with so many people.

03-21-2010, 05:37 PM
As we near the end of this fabulous swap I came upon a quote by James Rosenquist that seemed so relevant. He said, "When you look at a collage by Kurt Schwitters with disparate things stuck side by side and laid on top of each other-a newspaper, a train ticket, paper money, a torn piece of blue paper, a fashion illustration, an envelope with a stamp on it-you involuntarily make connections. With collage you are free to create your own narrative. That and an element of mystery is what originally attracted me to the process".So friends this has been a great journey in making those connections! Thanks to all of you for providing the art.

03-21-2010, 05:40 PM
Wonderful quote! Thanks for sharing!

03-21-2010, 06:27 PM
That's a great quote, Laffqueen!

I have nearly finished with all the gathering of art supplies for my retreat... hope to get back to collaging soon.

03-21-2010, 06:35 PM
Here are a couple of altered playing cards. Tinka has first pick on these. I also have a mini playing card that is altered with a quilled dragonfly on it. Really cute but I cant get a good picture of it to post.

Working on some quilled cards now.

03-21-2010, 06:53 PM
Well, this was my 2nd collage-a-thon and I was so tired today I just couldn't make another one. With 30 cards made and 14 trades, I am very pleased. :jiggy:

Thank you all for a wonderful CAT and I totally look forward to the next one. :wubclub:

Here is one of the postcards I started on Friday and finished today.
there are a few more ATCs and another postcard posted in my gallery if you want to go check 'em out.

03-21-2010, 08:20 PM
I just finished addressing the last of my envelopes. I made and posted 18 cards and ended up trading 21 cards with 15 people. I am so excited for my returns. If I traded with you and you are in the US, I will be mailing tomorrow. Overseas envelopes will need to wait a couple of days till I get to the post office. Thank you everyone for a wildly successful weekend. Its been fun.

03-21-2010, 08:50 PM
I always seem to get a late start on these wonderful weekends and by the end I'm all by myself...still creating...and trying to catch up to all of you!

Here are a few quilled cards. I wish I could find a better way to get pictures of them to post. Their dimensional quality means that they just dont scan well so the pictures dont usually do them justice.

I'll be here working on more for a few more hours. Hopefully some of you are still up for some trading when it is all over.

They are CAT Quilled 1, CAT Quilled 2 (TRADED) and CAT Quilled 3 (TRADED)

03-21-2010, 08:54 PM
I'm still here. Actually I'm reading through the thread again looking at all the eye candy.

03-21-2010, 09:10 PM
I'm around too! Not sure I'll get any more collaging done...

I'm running out of time to get packed. I have to work long days tomorrow and Tuesday and we leave Wednesday morning... aaahhh! ;)

03-21-2010, 09:13 PM
Going back through the thread is cool! There was a lot of wonderful art made this weekend!

03-21-2010, 09:25 PM
whew! glad you guys are still here. the quiet was starting to creep me out a little. *crickets* :laugh:

03-21-2010, 10:32 PM
Still trading. I've kept up with the thread pretty well but my gallery is the best bet - it's up to date on what's available. Anyone out there want to trade some more?:laugh:

03-21-2010, 10:34 PM
I'm hoping so. I'm still working on some cards.

03-21-2010, 10:50 PM
Ugh. I was so looking forward to this CAT, and even put off traveling this weekend so I could be here to play, but my muse up and flew the coop! No inspiration whatsoever. Sigh. I guess that's just how it is sometimes. I have been reading the thread and admiring all of your art throughout the CAT though - great job everyone!

my back hurts.. my eyes are still burning... the DUck is belly up in a corner... what a longgggg and fun time... finished all I could do earlier this afternoon and still drawn to come look and drool somemore... fantastic cards from everyone... if I had more power I would go back and see how many artist joined in this weekend... maybe someone knows ????? my cards are sealed in envelopes... except for a couple requested drawn cards... this ROOM ?? think I will just walk out and shut the door and build a new one later this week...

03-21-2010, 10:59 PM
I have two final cards, had to share computer with hubby, sorry they're so late in coming.
Bay Rum and President's Wife...In Harmony still available. I've had loads of fun and ready for an Easter Weekend a-Thon!

03-21-2010, 11:03 PM
woohooo, i've finished 4 cards today, and might be able to manage a few more! and, even better, went to the doctor and i am NOT contagious so i'm back in the swapping saddle! ...except i don't have a bunch to swap; gotta work on that...

03-21-2010, 11:03 PM
still 2 hours to go here and i have about a half dozen cards still in various stages of completion. hoping to keep the momentum going and get them finished tonight. if not...at least ill finally have some available cards in my gallery!

03-21-2010, 11:16 PM
I see wonderful cards were made while I was at dinner and the movies. Wish I had more to trade. However, I never did get anymore cards done today so not much left in my gallery. On the other hand, I didn't overxtend myself and have new cards to make that I owe for trades. If I didn't get to trade with you this time, hope to catch you on a future a-thon (like the Easter one). Thanks to everyone-all those who traded with me, to those I didn't get to trade with (yet who made all those other wonderful cards) and our hosts who make it all happen, Sniisk and HHC.

03-21-2010, 11:18 PM
Not quite "times up" for me but getting close - I gotta call it a day anyway. This was tons of fun and Kudos to our hostesses for keeping this going the extra days - that was a great idea! I still have some cards in my available gallery and wont seal envelopes til the bitter end so if you want to trade just PM me and I'll answer tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of the evening for those of you still going strong!

03-21-2010, 11:22 PM
Oh, CAT 6 (in my gallery and in the thread somewhere) is the only card I still have available if someone wants to do just one more trade lol.

03-22-2010, 12:04 AM
Okay...these are my last two. I have a few more going but the muse has packed it in for the night. Thanks to all for a wonderful, creative weekend! You all are amazing! Thanks to our hostesses and esp Sanna for the reminder. I would have missed it if not for you!

Hoping for some more trades so if you see anything you like, please PM me!

they are CAT Quilled 4 and MarchCAT12

03-22-2010, 01:36 AM
Thanks for playing, everyone. It has been a fun weekend! And a big thanks especially to Sniisk for being a fabulous hostess.

I am heading off to bed. Must work tomorrow so need to sleep. Good night!

03-22-2010, 02:50 AM
Here again. Just quick visit to see what happened when I was sleeping.

03-22-2010, 03:07 AM
I finally had time to update my gallery after the night. Some cards still available, but not too many anymore :).

I start sealing the envelopes in the evening, after about 8 hours.

03-22-2010, 03:12 AM
So sorry I missed out ... just too busy at work and trying to get prepped for ArtFest ... One more work day and then VACATION!!! :O) aaaaaahhhhhhh

03-22-2010, 03:14 AM
I'm so jealous! I'd love go to any artfest (any in Europe this year?). And have a vacation.

03-22-2010, 05:30 AM
Thank you Sniisk and HHC for hosting/coordinating this fun CAT weekend! I traded lots of ATC's, APC's and even the mini playing cards!

03-22-2010, 09:17 AM
Yes, Thank you Sniisk and HHC for hosting! I always enjoy the a-thon weekends & hope to participate Easter weekend as well.

I mailed my trades off this morning. :v_spin:

I will get my trades in the mail in the next few days....by Friday for sure! Thanks so much for the trades! Thanks to Sniisk and HHC for hosting this lively event!

I'm going to try to play in the Easter-a-thon as well but it all depends on the muse and my people as to whether they will allow me to play the weekend away again!

Thanks to all for a fun weekend- I had limited time- but traded a lot. I unfortunately will be away over the easter weekend in Florida and don't know what access I will have on my laptop. I know my sister may have a wireless- but my in-laws definitely won't! I'll have to go hot spot trawling all over St. Petersburg!!!:laugh:

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I have had a cupcake and a slice of cake today... and am sugared out. I don't eat sweets often... so feel a bit bleh! :D

My trades will be in the mail tomorrow morning. And I'll be pretty much out of touch until late Monday March 29th.

Thanks again to you all for playing! This was a fun weekend.

And don't forget the Easter weekend a-thon...

An Easter A Thon...Awesome...are there details anywhere? I checked the Media A thons Sticky Notes and didn't see it there?

Thanks to everyone again for the wonderful trades, I was much more scattered and unorganized about my trading than usual with my company in town and a trip to the ER but still managed to trade quite a few cards. My sincerest apologies to anyone I might not have gotten back with, definitely not my modus operandi!

My envelopes will be out by the end of the week. HHC and Sniisk as always you are fantastic hosts and I really appreciate you for organizing these events!
