Frick and Frack are hosting a bird-a-thon weekend
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_Frick___Frack.jpg
… and everyone is flocking to come play with them…

*hand carved stamps by jaw*

Come play with us! We're creating art featuring birds over this long USA Thanksgiving weekend!

You can create whatever type of art you wish, in whatever medium you choose. The only requirement is that your art has a bird on it somewhere.

Start time (in your time zone – start when your clock says 12:01am) November 25 12:01am. End time (in your time zone) November 28 - 11:59 pm

It’s open to EVERYONE! If you have a few minutes, come play with us!

This weekend we will :
1) Create bird themed art: ATC’s, chunky pages, inchies, twinchies, charms, skinny pages, journal pages, rollos, gothic arches, post cards... (what am I forgetting?) It just has to have a bird on it somewhere.
2) Post and Trade if you like. Or just post to show us what you’ve created.
3) Chat (if you can only stop in to admire the art and chat sometimes, that’s cool!)
4) Have fun!

Trades: When you find some art you must have, please SEND A PERSONAL MESSAGE (pm) to that person asking for a trade.

Love that art? Remember you can click the You Rock button. We all love receiving feedback!

Posting your art to the thread: [/B]
From your atcsforall.com gallery: It’s easiest to have two windows open. I can create another "tab" and get to my gallery in one and be in my post reply box in the other.
1) Go to your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location”.
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
3) Go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
4) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl P) into the window that pops up and hit OK - that puts the code into your post for your picture to show up; (you paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box)
5) and then you're done.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_SAT_Autumn_Redwing.jpg [/IMG

(leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. Find the word or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

From your computer:
1. Click POST REPLY at the bottom of the messages screen. Above the message box, click the paperclip next to the smiley face. Then upload as usual. This will upload your picture as a thumbnail.
2. If you go into the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the messages screen, click GO ADVANCED and you will get the paperclip above the message box.

New to a-thons?
If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me, or post your questions to the thread. We have a lot of experienced art-a-thoners who are more than willing to help those of you new to this craziness.

I love Jaws hand crafted stamps, especially Frick and Frack! Jules will you make me a birdy stamp for Oregon Live Gathering? I'd be happy to make you something special in return...or drop an extra nice bottle of Chardonnay in your goody bag.:yes::D

Snowing here today for the first time this year...brrrr! I'm excited to go but this whole scanner issue has me more than uncomfortable, I've had Malignant Melanoma (Skin Cancer) and this is skin radiation....but the personal parts pat down is not high on my list either!

lkastello
11-22-2010, 07:09 PM
Robby- My husband is a retired corrections officer...he said that the media is reporting on EXTREME pat downs...you might feel better when you get to the airport and see a couple performed. :)

RobbyGirl
11-22-2010, 07:12 PM
I sure hope so Lisa, the only extreme pat downs I want are from my hubby :err: LOL

Daryl will be here for part of the weekend, but I think he has some work that he has to get done. So I hope to play for some part of the weekend. I was too busy this past weekend to play in the CBAT and I was really sorry once I saw all the terrific art.

DITTO on that, HHC! :jiggy:
I've already got some cute birdies cut out and some backgrounds ready too! I might even be able to get my daughter involved if she isn't off visiting old friends, doing laundry or snoozing on the couch! (She's HOME for Thanksgiving! YAYYY!)

Robby, have a wonderful time at Disney! I'm jealous!

yeeeaah, hand turkeys!

i think someone's been having fun with this thread's tags. :laugh:

I know I'll be prepping between now and the 25th, but I don't know what the holiday weekend will hold in terms of travel or whatnot. I will most assuredly be here if I'm not off visiting people far away!

Don't know how much I'll get done on Thursday, but I'll be home Thursday evening and start on my birdies then - I can't wait!

oh yea... still haven't gotten ready... or even starting to start to get started ... but I will be hear... Ducky is afraid to get toooo close to the kitchen next couple days, so he will probably show up more then me... poor duck almost fainted the other day when I was picking out a turkey... they had frozen ducks right next to the turkeys...:cry:

Oh this sounds like so much fun. I love these a-thons and love birdies.
I will be in New York City visiting with my sons. I brought some blank cards and drawing supplies but don't know what I'll get done or if I can post things with their computer equipment.

I will be following along on this thread....oooing and ahhhing over the cards.

I've been scouring my catalogs as they come in to find bird images. Lots of birds in bags at my house! Plus, I scored 40% off of a group of bird stamps at Michael's. I should be all set once I trim my images down!

MorahLaura

I'll be here off and on .. since I am in retail ... only have Thursday and Sunday off ...

and looks like our kids will be coming for Thanksgiving ... they lost their power 26 hours ago and the power company hasn't even assessed the situation yet ... they were told it will probably be AFTER the holiday. It's 60 degrees in their house and dropping ... poor babies. So off to grandma's tiny house they may come! LOL ... over the river and through the woods .... they'd be staying in ... my ... studio! whimper, whimper ...

I will play, not sure how much, but I wouldn't miss it!

calluna
11-23-2010, 11:58 PM
Hooray, Thanksgiving is canceled! I'm not celebrating the fact that the matriarch of the family is ill (hence the cancellation), but I am celebrating that I'll be free to do art all day instead of sitting awkwardly at family's house!! :jiggy: (yeah, I'm rather selfish when it comes to my art-time)

My Bird is in the oven and my decorating is done...

I read this and my first thought was, "What kind of ATCs is she making, putting them in the oven? Maybe a shrinky-dink bird?" Then it finally dawned on me--"Ooooh, a REAL bird, to eat!" :laugh:

(Shrinky-dink birds would be wonderful, by the way)

horray for Rita... she got show and tell for us .... and they both are great gal... love the first pair... great idea.. how you did them....... and for me it is just 5 minutes before my start time... but don't think I will be getting anything done at midnight...
got a couple ideas to do first thing in the morning when the turkey is stuck in the oven... so should have something up by early morning...

calluna
11-25-2010, 01:47 AM
Wheee, playtime begins for me in just over 2 hours!
I'll be starting out working on chunkies. I have to give first dibs on them to some folks on another site, so I won't know what I can offer to trade here until Saturday. (We're having something of a Black Friday arts and crafts swap!)

TimeInMyHands
11-25-2010, 02:02 AM
That is such a cool dove, miloccpep! Very unique!!
smokeysmom, that is an awesome bird chunky too! I can tell there is going to be some beautiful art in this "a-thon" so I hope to get started on something I can trade!

Doesn't look like I'll be sleeping tonight anyways!:sad: I'm too worried about my daughter as she has a high fever and actually blacked out this afternoon which literally scared me to death! *Long story short...she has something called "Syncope" and has blacked out 3-times before. Twice when she has had a high fever and the last time was her Senior year of HS during Track when she tripped over a hurdle and went skidding across the pavement! I had hoped she'd outgrown it but apparently not!

HHC
11-25-2010, 02:05 AM
Two hours until I can start and I'm not sure I can stay awake that long. I have been working on some ideas for layouts and printing images and cutting them out. I am so ready! LOL!

I'll be playing with ATCs, chunky pages and Gothic arches and who knows what else...

Good morning chicks & chickadees (& ducky)! A few lovely birds have already appeared ... I'm sure there will be many more joining the flock over the next few days.

I have nothing to post, yet ... but wanted to chirp in & say "Hi".

I'm a bit late to the party, but I noticed all the birds flocking to the gallery so here I am! I probably won't be able to play today... we decided on Monday to celebrate Thanksgiving after all. We had thought to pretend it was just a regular Thursday - a year ago today my father passed away, and it's been a rough year for my family. (This is a big part of why I've hardly even been on AfA in ages, too. Hope no one minds me jumping back in like this.) My mother decided she wanted to be thankful for what she *does* have, even if there's a very big hole in her life right now (all our lives, really) so we are having a small non-traditional feast this afternoon. And thanks to the magic of online shopping, we are hoping to get most of our Christmas shopping done too! :)

Wow, I do ramble on... anyhow, I might end up playing today - my mom is a fellow ATCer, so we may make some art together. But definitely the rest of the weekend, since I have no other plans til Monday.

Check back with y'all later!

Betsi, I'm sorry about your loss. I know how hard holidays are after you lose someone.

It's good to see you here and we're playing all weekend so there's plenty of time.

HI Betsy... and yes, any holiday is hard to partake in with a recent loss.. and I think you and your mama having a non-traditional day is moving in the right direction... many of us will have an empty chair at our table this year and many years... but this is a day of Thanksgiving... giving thanks for what we do have....
so I do hope you and your mother can sit and let your creative side have some fun times this weekend...

I'm wanting to get to some of my supplies, but a friend spent the night and she is still zonked out in my studio...
The daughter texted us last night and they got their power back on at about 9pm after over 2 days of no power! ... so off to their house (with my friend in tow) I was SO looking forward to doing the whole family Turkey Day stuff here... heavy sigh ... AND I think the turkey cooked a bit long ... OOPS!

I promised him a bike ride today and a long car ride and buffet tomorrow....gosh...when am I going to make birds????

Hahaa, we have over 10 inches snow :). But it's nice and warm and dry here inside the house. And I have a cup of coffee, I'm watching you all making great cards... What else could I wish?

Betsi
11-25-2010, 02:10 PM
Sorry to hear you're not feeling well sniisk. They say that art is the best medicine, you know! ;) Hope you feel better soon, and can get some birds made.

As for me, my sweetie and I are taking an hour or two to chill out - got our cleaning done and aren't expecting my mom and sibs for a few hours, so I have time to make some birdies! Yay!

Good luck on the birding everyone, especially those of you with hectic weekends ahead.

Rogue Gal
11-25-2010, 04:27 PM
Doesn't look like I'll be sleeping tonight anyways!:sad: I'm too worried about my daughter as she has a high fever and actually blacked out this afternoon which literally scared me to death! *Long story short...she has something called "Syncope" and has blacked out 3-times before. Twice when she has had a high fever and the last time was her Senior year of HS during Track when she tripped over a hurdle and went skidding across the pavement! I had hoped she'd outgrown it but apparently not!


Lydia, I'm prone to vasovagal syncope too. It's an extreme shock reaction and I have experienced it usually after I injure my hands or fingers. The docters say that stress plays a part too. The first time I actually got it diagnosed was a few years back when I cut my finger on a can lid, passed out and went into convulsions. Came to struggling on the floor with hubby who was trying to hold me still while in my fevered mind I thought he was holding me down trying to kill me. Scared the crap out of both of us. Then one time I was getting out of bed after two days of exhausting travel and I passed out in the doorway and got a concussion. The last time was about 3 weeks ago when I was - no joke - sitting on the toilet. I guess I pitched forward and landed on my face because when I woke up I was balanced with my face against the floor and my butt in the air, and my nose and eye hurt like hell. The pose was actually pretty funny - luckily no one was around to see it :D

I don't know if it's the same for your daughter, but these episodes completely drain me. Afterward I am extremely fatigued and feel like a zombie. I feel for both you and your daughter - she must feel miserable and you are naturally very concerned about her. Just make sure she takes it easy and cool her down with a cool washcloth if it happens again (I always get a rush of heat where I can't cool down immediately afterwards). Ice helps too. I'm sorry that your daughter is so sick, but glad that she is at home with her mom, who can look after her so well.

I hope you have some time to play with us, sweetie - maybe while she is resting.

Rogue Gal
11-25-2010, 04:35 PM
yes, any holiday is hard to partake in with a recent loss.. and I think you and your mama having a non-traditional day is moving in the right direction... many of us will have an empty chair at our table this year and many years... but this is a day of Thanksgiving... giving thanks for what we do have....
so I do hope you and your mother can sit and let your creative side have some fun times this weekend...


So well said, Nancy! Betsi, I'm so sorry for your loss! I lost my dad when I was a child and know how awful the holidays can feel with such a huge absence. I think that your family coming together for a low key gathering is perfect. As strange as it feels without your father there, it would be harder to be alone, without the support of those who are feeling the same as you today. It's great that your mom is an ATCer too, so maybe you can both distract yourselves a bit with art together. I wish you well today and will be thinking of you and your family.

Sanna, I'm sorry you aren't feeling well :sad: I hope you feel better soon and are inspired to play a bit.

I'm running late today - must jump in the shower and then get to creating. The birdies you all have posted so far are magnificent! I must make some myself so I can get to trade.

Aww, I hear kitty snoring coming from the other room. When my hubby snores, I get annoyed, but when the cats or dogs snore I think it's cute.

calluna
11-25-2010, 05:00 PM
I agree--animal snores are adorable! And thanks for posting your experience with this condition of blacking/passing out; it's not a name I've heard before but I'm glad to learn about it. (:

It's been a wildly manic morning of bird art! There's a bunch of 4x4 cards in progress all over my room. After I eat something I'll start chunkifying them. :D

Thank you so much for the well wishes, paintmanycolors and Rogue Gal! It's good to know someone else has this....I mean I'm not happy you have it...well, you know what I mean!
She actually had just got off the potty yesterday when it happened and I can always tell cause she says "Mom, hold me" then her body goes rigid, eyes roll back in her head, she gurgles almost like she's trying to say something...yesterday was the first time she quit breathing during that part...finally, after what seems like a long time (actually maybe only a minute or two) her eyes open and she is totally confused. She says she can "Hear" me yelling for her too but I sound really far away.
Thank God we know what they are though! The first two times we thought maybe it was Epilepsy but had several tests run and she is very healthy except for the Syncope!
Ah well, I'm sorry I'm hijacking the thread! Its just soo frightening for me (and her too!) I could hardly stop crying and shaking yesterday!
*Christine, I will have to PM you as soon as I get some more free time! Again, thank you sooo much for posting that!:yes:

So, would I be a bad mommy if I just want to escape, go upstairs and make some art? :confused: I feel like I just need it!
I can go up after everyone is asleep but I'd love to go up earlier so we'll see!
Keep making those BEAUTIFUL HAPPY BIRDS everyone!!

Good evening! I hope everyone had a great day, whether you were celebrating Thanksgiving or not. I have to admit that several times during the day I thought about the bird-a-thon and wished I could be at home doing my own thing. :D There was lots of great work posted here today.

I am beat (stayed up WAY past my bedtime last night) so I probably won't get anything new posted tonight, especially if they have scheduled some site maintenance. I *should* work tomorrow but I am really psyched about making more cards so I may have to play hooky.

Well, I see some fantastic work by everyone and I see most are calling it a night. I just now got my first 2 completed and hopefully I'll be able to work a couple of more hours. This was a great idea and I love all the birdies.

OK, here is a discussion in our working room few minutes ago:

Hubby: What are you doing?
Me: Birds.
Hubby: What?
Me: Bird cards.
Hubby: Why?
Me: We are having a bird-a-thon?
Hubby: (very slowly) O (even slowlier) K.
Me: Just making as many cards as possible, you know what is an a-thon.
Hubby: And the word is the bird? (he walks away)

Then I found this from me email. He sent it from the kitchen.

Had to laugh at the reference sniisk! The Trashmen (the garage band that made Surfin' Bird famous!) are from Minneapolis!! Even heard they started in Edina, the Minneapolis suburb where my hubby grew up! Ahhhh a claim to fame at last!!! LOL!!!:twitcy:

Oh and here is my first bird. Perhaps a bit wacked out by the Surfin Bird still ringing in my ears (You guys DO know how difficult it is to get that song out of your head?? I suggest NOT listening to that clip more than once!! LOL)

This one is called "Doodle Bird" See his two eyes? and his round little mouth making that ooooo sound???? OK, perhaps I'll try something a little more conventional next time???
