OK..... who got my cards ???????? I thought I had posted 2 cards here just a few minutes ago... and they not here ????
look under your chairs gals, anyone see my 2 love cards ????
what in the world did I do ??? I don know...

guess I better go check and see if I even have them in my gallery....

that was strange... but I found my post... had to click the back arrow about a dozen times and found them.... I had clicked on PREview, but didn't click submit... DAH....

Dang you found them....thought I had hidden them better than that! You gotta watch out for purple cards....I tend to walk off with them......those and clocks, pigs or monkeys!!! oooooooo if anyone posts a purple pig and monkey with a purple clock I will just die on the spot for shear joy!:swoon:

Just got in from being out a few hrs and look at what's happened. Hahaha:cute: I never imagined it would be this popular when I came up w/ the idea. Who am I to stop all of you creative folks from creating!?! I say we do it! We can be the first a-thon group to go rogue and make it an extra day long. I won't get much time in tomarrow due to work but who knows. I'm going to go in and finish the cards I already have started now. Sorry for not being online as often as I should but everyone seems to be holding there own. Thanks for playing this weekend!:)

I just ordered a set from Amazon - I forget the name of the seller - the price seemed right - I guess I'll know if it was worth it once I get them. I'm intrested also if anyone has a good internet source? Doesn't help you right this minute but I have some extra I'll send with our trade.

Trini, I'll be here Monday, no worries.

As to buying stamps, well, I'm not sure about the Netherlands. Are there any stamp collecting stores there?

I've bought a lot on ebay, too. I've seen them on etsy, but haven't bought there. Mystic Stamp Company is great. I especially love their U.S. catalog because then you can thumb through it. I don't know what their policy is with overseas shipping, though.

Others....

Great that we are stretch this a-thon. Although I have to admit we are running low on stamps here :wacko: Anyone has good sources for getting nice collections of stamps?

I don't know about the Netherlands, but in the US, most hobby shops carry them. Hobby Lobby sells bags of 300 Worldwide Stamps and another Bag of US stamps. They're about $6.00 a bag.

One of my local scrapbook stores sells postage stamps. Used and not used. I went thru them yesterday to get more for this athon. I picked out a bunch of neat ones and then got tired of looking thru so many so I grabbed a last 'pinch' of stamps without looking. I got one with Adolph Hitler on it and it's not canceled. Ick! I feel like I should burn it or something.

This is fun though. I've never used postage stamps on atc's before and it's making me think differently. If my allergies weren't driving me nuts I'd be making a lot of them I think.

Working on my second one now. :)

Theresa, I thought the whole point of living in the desert was to not have allergies. Here in the central plains spring is horrible for them. I've been sneezing all day so I sympathize.

I'd love to do another soon. For one thing, those of us not able to go to AFA in July need something to look forward to...not that I'm saying we couldn't do one sooner. :) I'm just in the throes of "I can't go to AFA in Dallas" misery.

Oh, and the answer to my question: to get on a US postage stamp, you have to have been dead ten years, unless you're a U.S. president. The post office issues stamps pretty quickly after a president dies, the latest being Ronald Reagan.

And, if you ask me, a long overdue postage stamp is John Lennon. He's on tons of international stamps, but hasn't had a U.S. one. I don't know if there's a resistance in the post office or if Yoko wants too much money or what? And it can't be that he's not an American citizen because neither was Frida Kahlo....ok, sorry, that's one of my rants.

Now I must get to my art desk. :)

OK, I think I am done for the weekend :). I had a great time, traded almost all cards (except for 2 or 3) and I am getting ready to putting them all in envelopes. I want to mail everything out tomorrow if possible as I will be going on vacation this Thursday! I will be going on a painting holiday to Greece for 2 weeks and then when I come back I probably cannot open my door as all of your lovely artwork will be on my doormat ;-).

Here's what's left of mine that haven't been traded yet, including the one above. I'll be waiting to see what the activities are for Memorial weekend. I'll be out of town Saturday but home Friday & Sunday and probably working Monday. Being a holiday weekend that makes the a-thon automatically four days long, doesn't it?

Again, thanks to everyone:notworthy: for making this such a great weekend full of lots and lots of trades. I never imagined that postage stamps would inspire so many like they have. There WILL be another some time down the road, but not too soon. We have to leave room for all the other great a-thons!:jiggy:
