The morning is already gone and I haven't done anything. I'll try to upload here in an edit, but if you want to look at my gallery it mat be faster. Tink I'll check your gallery if you are interested in trading for Night Watch?

11-26-2010, 03:49 PM
Well i am going to give up tonight. I am losing patience with it & can't even report the error on Sanna's link. If i'm not on here, then i have time to make more art. So it can only be a good thing. See you all tomorrow. xx

11-26-2010, 03:57 PM
I am actually glad that the problem isn't just on my end. Sorry you guys are also having troubles.

11-26-2010, 04:01 PM
Seems like it's working faster now...

11-26-2010, 04:02 PM

Loving the BIRDS! Couldn't sign in for database error for 2 hrs. and now can't log in Dana's thread to report it, lol.

I gave in & came back. Still can't upload so here are the links for my latest three.


11-26-2010, 05:07 PM
Troubles all around! Gonna give this a try . . .

Blue Bird chunkies

Left to Right they are numbered 1 - 4

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A LIGHT WEIGHT CHUNKY. This is a single sheet of heavy double sided paper that is folded in such a way to create the outer and inner pocket. So this is NOT your typical chipboard chunky. You should be able to bind it according to your preference. No danglies they will be sent as you see them. Will trade chunky for chunky. ;)

11-26-2010, 05:18 PM
site is working a bit better right now.

11-26-2010, 05:20 PM
I've been watching all the pretty birds flock in....Couldn't play with you all yesterday. I tried playing last night after the hoopla was through for the day but collaging wasn't going anywhere so I gave it up till this morning. Collaging wasn't working then either so I went the route of the familiar markers!
I have about a dozen birds to offer for trade but I'm getting that dreaded error message. I will try to upload them to my gallery and try to post them here later this evening. I'm headed to my sister's house for another feast in about an hour.
I've loaded them all to flickr if anyone wants to go take a look. Everything over at flickr is available if you find something besides birdies you can't live without! I'm always up for a trade or two! Thanks for the idea, Amy!


I'll be back after supper to try to upload cards to this thread!

11-26-2010, 05:23 PM
Seems like things are running ticky-boo again, KNOCK ON WOOD!!! :) Just got up from my afternoon nap and hoping to get more cards done, but having a hard time getting into the groove. Keep up the great work, y'all!

Wow! You are all so creative! I got back from our errands, to a still slow site.

Please, everyone, if you can get to it, post your error messages or slowness on the Database Error/Slow Connections (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?p=838401#post838401) thread. It will help Dana get the problem fixed. http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?p=838401#post838401

You can always note the time and error and post it when the site speeds back up again.

System is too slow for me. Great birdies everyone - see you tomorrow!

11-26-2010, 11:39 PM
I'm so sorry the system is being slow! It's a bit of a damper on this a-thon. But on the good side, your art is fabulous! I hope the site is repaired and up to speed quickly!

Miss Iowa
11-26-2010, 11:45 PM
I have no mojo today! Yesterday's festivities kinda wiped me out. I did manage to complete one card tonight.



11-26-2010, 11:48 PM
The art has been great! Off to PM about trades, then to bed. My creative juices are too sluggish right now.

Hopefully I can find time to play tomorrow before the bonfire in the evening...

11-26-2010, 11:49 PM
poeticpaper... what bonfire? It sounds kinda fun. :)

11-26-2010, 11:50 PM
Okay...here are 3 more chunkies. going back to cards now.

birdchunky8 traded
birdchunky9 traded

11-27-2010, 12:00 AM
HHC, my group of friends, that we call the Tribe, is having a bonfire/backyard camp out for ourselves and our children. My daughter's first "camping" and bonfire experience. Good times!

Site is still creeping along, so I'm signing off and I'll check in tomorrow after coffee...

11-27-2010, 12:13 AM
OK, here are a couple.

11-27-2010, 12:31 AM
I really am a night owl - see what I did there? ;) - because I spent the morning wrestling with art supplies, trying to make more birdies, but it just wasn't cooperating. This evening I spread out in the living room while my sweetie is out with friends and BAM!!! eight new birdie cards. :D I'm a happy camper.

No upload just now though, I'm still trying to figure out pictures - I've been posting photos instead of scans because my scanner - which I hadn't used in ages, and bought a new laptop in the intervening months - doesn't want to function in Windows 7. Tried it on my sweetie's iMac, but no luck there either... I'll have to ask him about it tomorrow. I'm gonna try to take photos tonight though, so y'all don't have to be left hangin'. :laugh:

Thanks for all the well-wishes, by the way - Thanksgiving was very nice, though we all got very tense towards the end of the evening. I think we were all a bit worn out - it's oddly tiring to be happy all day when some part of you wants to be miserable. Sorry to ramble... anyhow, our non-traditional day was very pleasant, all in all. I think Dad would have been proud of us for making the most of things even though we miss him so badly.

Art really is the best medicine... I think this birdathon has been a real blessing for me - making so much art, and for one of the first times in a year, has really helped to ground me during this rough time and give me some sunshine.

11-27-2010, 12:32 AM
Here are the first 2 I have completed:

1. Nesting Couple
2. 2 yr old's hand turkey

11-27-2010, 12:37 AM
Okay, made a chunky... Probably make more stuff tomorrow...

It's available, Please PM if you want to trade... Chunky for chunky or chunky for 2 ATC's.

57897 - HOOT! - TRADED to theweavershand

11-27-2010, 01:11 AM
Those are sooo A-dorable iEmilyAnn!!

11-27-2010, 01:14 AM
Wonderful cards everyone! I'm with the Duck - having a terrible time just getting on the site - don't get error messages - just get nothing. But I'm catching up on messages now. Hopefully we'll all have better luck tomorrow. Trying to keep my gallery up to date - have a few things still available and more in the works. Have a good night everyone - see you tomorrow.:sleep:

11-27-2010, 01:28 AM
my gallery is full so ill have to get rid of some to post anything there. any suggestions on a quicker way to do that or do you actually have to go in and delete things one by one?

11-27-2010, 01:49 AM
Well, Ducky's whimsical birds inspired me to do these two :)



11-27-2010, 01:56 AM
Ok all, here's what I have to show for my evening.. :) I'm so used to my scanner, it's driving me crazy how hard it is to get the edges to look straight and even. I promise I always cut very carefully! :laugh: And I can't make any promises about the colors, either! A lot of the pinks ended up kind of orangey. Weird. Hopefully my sweetie can get my scanner working tomorrow, but in the mean time, I hope you like them. All of these are in my gallery for a somewhat closer look. Oh, and there's a few non-birdie ones added to my gallery as well, if you'd like to take a peek.

Here are some Christmas Bird Chunky pages:

57905 - Christmas Chunky #1

57906 - Christmas Chunky #2 Traded

57907 - Christmas Chunky #3 Traded

57908 - Christmas Chunky #4

I have another that still needs to dry so will post tomorrow. Smokeysmom gets first choice if she likes any of these. I wasn't sure if I liked the tinsel ribbon fibers or not, so left them off most pages. If you trade for one and want the tinsel added I can easily do it with the mixed red & green, red, or gold. Just let me know if you want it.

I'm hoping to get some different chunkies made tomorrow, if the muse cooperates.

11-27-2010, 04:23 AM
Sooooooo maaaaaaaany wonderful cards here. I wish I could make more :). I'm feeling quite sick and don't know how much I can make today.

One thing I have to say. Maybe this slow site has been an opportunity this time. There have been more cards than normally :). Less time here, more time to craft :).

11-27-2010, 04:27 AM
I try to make some chunky book pages today.

11-27-2010, 10:07 AM
Does anyone know, Is there a way of deleting multiple pics in my gallery, rather than just one at a time? x

11-27-2010, 10:18 AM
Two chunkies from me.


11-27-2010, 10:19 AM
I've PMed you grrrdjules!

So far I only been able to make one atc for this bird-a-thon -- tis actually my first time I join in a *-thon, too!


Ever since I started crafting I haven't kept many of my own work, always traded all I made, until DH asked me why I never make anything for myself! So I haven't quite decided whether to keep this one (since I am pretty pleased with it, I've been looking to make something in this style but it never quite worked out before lol!) or whether to trade it..

11-27-2010, 10:57 AM
Does anyone know, Is there a way of deleting multiple pics in my gallery, rather than just one at a time? x

Hi! Was looking for some other information and came across this in a member support thread asking about mass deletes. The other posts indicated that other than this method - it is a photo by photo process.

"If you want to delete a whole bunch, admin can do it if you say something like delete everything before February. You can PM Carole Cadek for that."

Here's the link to the thread....


Hope that helps....

I spent the entire day and evening with daughter in the ER and didn't make it home till around 10pm so I only had time to pop in and pop out last night! She has an awful bad UTI so they gave her several scripts and a shot in the butt so hopefully she will be feeling all better real soon!:yes:

Here are the only 3-cards I've managed to eek out so far! I might try to make some during the OSU/Michigan game later though so we'll see!

(All 3-cards are either traded or on hold!)

Thank you, minnkel! I've never had one (knock on wood!) but I know she was in ALOT of pain! I've got my fingers and toes crossed she will feel better by this Tuesday, Wednesday at least so she can head home! :yes:
I definitely don't want her driving though, on all that medication!:eek:

11-27-2010, 11:58 AM
Like ginabee, I ned to clean off my desk. It's covered in so many images and torn paper I can't see the wood anymore.

I will clear my space for another round. I'll be playing in between going to the gym and getting ready for the campout tonight. Maybe I'll bring some ATCs to play with at the bonfire...maybe...

Off to make those PMs I tried to get to lastnight but the site was too slow...

You all been creating some gorgeous birds since I last checked in! I should have more birds before the day is out.

11-27-2010, 02:36 PM
Well, I've almost got the printer/scanner reinstalled. I may need to give up and take pictures. We also have a local trade today, so I'll be off to that in a few hours.

11-27-2010, 02:46 PM
I just got back from the Vet. Skipper, my little Pom/mix/mutt kept me up most the night with what I thought was an ear infection or maybe he got something in his ear...$72.50 later, no ear infection, just a little red, nothing found in the ear! They did give him some ear drops (anti-inflamatory) and sent us home with the ear drops....doc said maybe he got a long hair in his ear! I guess Poms are ultra sensitive, because he acted like he was suffering terribly. Darn dog! Good thing I love him:) Now back to creating!

11-27-2010, 02:49 PM
57977 #11 Yours? or mine?

11-27-2010, 03:12 PM
Well, it looks as though my scanner has bit the dust - we've tried it on two operating systems now, both of which are SUPPOSED to have drivers for it (sorry, getting a little technical here!) but it still won't work on either. Guess it's gonna be photos for me for a while, we can't afford a new scanner until after the holidays.

Off to try and get a card made before we do a spot of Christmas shopping - which is really just an excuse to get a little fresh air an sunshine in our long weekend of World of Warcraft and making ATCs. :D

11-27-2010, 03:27 PM
Betsi - check your local Freecycle group or Craigslist "free" section; a lot of scanners end up there when people upgrade to new equipment!

11-27-2010, 03:30 PM
I'm having fun working with my bird photos.

Here's one from an original photo and ink:

I spent the entire day and evening with daughter in the ER and didn't make it home till around 10pm so I only had time to pop in and pop out last night! She has an awful bad UTI so they gave her several scripts and a shot in the butt so hopefully she will be feeling all better real soon!:yes:

I was wondering about you yesterday - oh sweetie, I'm so sorry! How awful for both you and your daughter. I hope she starts feeling better soon!

I have cards I can't get posted. My scanner driver is STILL loading, and my computer is running so freakin' slow while it's doing it. So much for fast new computer. Pah!

I've taken pictures but am having trouble editing them on hubbys computer. Can you spell FRUSTRATION? :arghh:

Beautiful art everyone!!

11-27-2010, 10:52 PM
Hi folks,
I have been looking at this thread (when I could get on the site). Wow...great birdies have been flying in. I have been playing along making bird cards too but am out of town and can't post them. I'll do so when I get home.

11-27-2010, 10:53 PM
Yea! I got on.... I also am not computer savvy enough to post on the threads....actually I am so bad at this when the site began slowing down 2-3 weeks ago...I thought it was my PC and went and bought another...Oh well, live and learn. I just uploaded my 11th and 12th birdie to my gallery if anyone wants to check them out for trading.

11-27-2010, 10:55 PM
Darn I told Maggie I might not get anymore birds done since I have other stuff I should be working on. But I just realized I need at least one more for my trade with Tinka so LOoks like I'll be making more.

All of these are in my gallery for a closer look, along with a few stragglers that haven't been traded yet.

I am having such a blast y'all! Thank you all for participating in this - the community, the sharing, the trading, the inspiration of all your art - it sure is what I needed this weekend. I can't even tell you how much having this little online party (rockin' at all hours, too!) has done to lift my spirits. I know I haven't been on AfA much in ages, but I love that you have all welcomed me, and everyone else... new or old or long-absent, it doesn't matter. What a great community! *virtual group hug*

P.S. Huuuuuuge thanks to calluna for the craigslist suggestion; we are picking up a free all-in-one printer/scanner/fax tomorrow morning. We don't really need all those bells and whistles, but free is free! This will do until I can spend the money to buy a smaller scanner-only unit.

I was starting to clean off my craft desk so I can move on to Christmas cards tomorrow, and of course found all sorts of scraps that were just begging to be used.

This card is not for trade, but I thought I would share it since I ended up putting a bird on it! ;)
