Okay... we're thinking it would be fun to have a one day Crow/Raven/Blackbird a-thon, sometime in the near future.

What we'll do is take that day and create some Crow/Raven/Blackbird themed art. ATC's, 4x4 pages (chunky or not) inchies, twinchies, journal pages... whatever art strikes you on the theme. And whatever media you choose... hand drawn, painted, collaged...

So pick a day from the list so we can determine the best time for all to play.

Wed Sept 1
Monday Sept 6 (labor day in US... and the final day of the Found Poetry a-thon)
Sunday Sept 12
Sunday Sept 19

This poll closes Thursday Aug 26 at 9:02pm Pacific Time, so get your vote in now! :)

I voted wednesday. I don't know my schedules too far in advance, but Weds are my day off, so it's the only one I know I could play.

Fun idea!
I voted for Sunday the 12th (the 19th, I'll be at Mt. Rainier)
Wednesday the first, I work 8 hours and have a cavity filled...so I could look only look at the wonderful birds!

It looks like a three day event to me...:laugh:

The 13th is best for me because I'll be home to create, but any of the other Sundays work if need be. Mid-week (esp for one day only) is bad because I have to work all day and may not get anything done as I tend to just veg once I get home.

I didn't see this while the voting went on (says poll closed now) would have voted for the 13th :). I'm available the othe dates just not for too
much time. The FPAT is going on during the 6th.

HHC
08-27-2010, 09:50 AM
Well... the poll is closed and the Sunday the 12th has 9 points so that will be the official blackbird a-thon. :)

Although I am off on Sept 1st and may be creating some blackbird cards then too. And don't blackbirds lend themselves to Found Poetry as well... ;)

You never know just where you'll be seeing blackbirds in the next few weeks.

Does anybody have a copyright free site for blackbird, crow, raven images???

This sounds like just the distraction I need as my eldest daughter returns on that day to Queensland (the other end of Australia from me) after a lovely 2 week visit. She has been living there for 4 years now and visits are rare and precious.

Um... not specifically. But I've gathered a lot of images from this site which, I believe, are free to use in your personal art and for resale. You DO need to read her copyright info before using.

well the black birds and crows are gathering together around here getting ready to move south for the winter... and now my crafty table is filling with crow and raven images too...
a super gal here, not wanting to use names cause KESagers is shy that way:huh: she sent me some images last week and I been scanning and making some different sizes and cut-outs.... even did some paint bucket backgrounds so I am itching for our fun DAY...
