OH, I would love to play. But I will be on vacation.... :mask:. Next time I will be there!

Okay... regrouping! A couple of other options were suggested for the weekend, so it appears something will be going on. Just perhaps not an All Types of Art a-thon!

Looking forward to it!

Should it be an All types with optionial challenge days? Thinking out loud.

I'm waiting to hear back from Robin. I don't want to presume and step on anyone's toes. I'm happy to postpone an ATART until later. We've had those of recent, and we haven't had a Found Poetry a-thon.

Optional challenge days for an ATART is always good! BTW. :)

Sounds like a plan - whatever we do it will be fun!

A perfect idea! Optional challenges is the way to go, less restrictive!

HHC

So here's a thought: what if we moved the ATART to Thursday June 2 through Sunday June 5. And RobbyGirl holds the Found Poetry a-thon the weekend of May 27 - 30.

Would you all be okay with that?

HHC
05-16-2011, 09:03 PM
Not that it is much of a decision, you'll all show up whenever anyway. LOL!

And optional themes each day is good. I'm sure we'll be totally addicted to Found Poetry so will need to do a day of that. :yes:

You are all fabulous! I'll spend the weekend with you whatever type of a-thon we do. :)

I'll play when I can. All Types of Art works great as ... I'm more into postage stamps at the moment ... LOL
Found poetry sometimes works and sometimes doesn't ... for me ... hope to try a bit of that too, but it is again a working weekend for me.

Yeah, what she said! And you can step on my toes anytime Helen cause you are just the Sweetest and I'm always happy when there's an a-thon. Got your message and a FPAT followed by an ATART sounds delicious! I'll get the FPAT starter thread up and running tomorrow. I had Carole add it to the calendar. :wubclub::wubclub:

Okay here's the Pre FPAT Thread (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?p=993220#post993220) it's almost tomorrow. Actually I was still subscribed to the thread I did for last years Memorial Day Weekend FPAT so all I had to do was change the dates and repost..YAY!

You know, I was thinking it might be fun to run the ATART from Wednesday through Sunday... a long one, but that way folks who work weekends have a full day to play, not just nights when they get home. What do you all think about that?

Sounds good to me.

I can at least get one of those days!

Oh, I am so UP for these a thons! I had a goal when I joined aFA in Aug.2010 and that was to make 365 cards by Aug 2011. I'm really falling short. Hoping (and praying) that I can get close with the a thons and personal trades.
Hoo ray for a thons!!

Perfect timing. I'm having a short holiday then :).

When is the new ATART starting - there have been so many dates suggested I am confused :wacko: I need to know so that I don't miss the start.
Will it be added to the a-thon calendar?

HHC
05-21-2011, 10:19 AM
The ATART will start Wednesday June 1 and go through Sunday June 5... it is on the calendar now.

Yippee!! I have a week to recover and then I can do it all again!! Thanks for the quick answer HHC

Oooh! I love a long athon. I picked up some round playing cards that I'm going to try out for this. I've seen some gorgeous ones in the gallery.

05-22-2011, 09:10 AM
Backgrounfs for about 60 cards are now ready :). Well prepared? Sure!

sniisk
05-22-2011, 10:08 AM
Not 60 cards! But 60 backgrounds :).

sniisk
05-22-2011, 10:08 AM
Elina, if you want to share some inspiration etc., our kitchen table in free use during the ATART :).

HHC
05-22-2011, 11:13 AM
Sanna! What are you doing with 60 backgrounds already? Is that a challenge? LOL!

sniisk
05-22-2011, 11:15 AM
I'll work terrible long days on May 22-June1. I need to prepare now or I can't do it at all. I thought 60 backgrounds should be enough...

HHC
05-22-2011, 11:22 AM
I'm not sure it will be quite enough for you, however you'll probably have time to create a few extras when you're off. LOL! :D

sniisk
05-22-2011, 11:23 AM
Heheeeee, I'm not sure about that either. At least I have a good start :).

As I have a two week break during June starting the 3rd June I am going to be able to play so I am so looking forward to it! LOL Might be able to start on the 1st with a card or two!

Oh, I'm so glad that this a thon is falling on the heels of the Poetry a thon!
Yay!............all types of art means I can do more "poetry cards", huh?
{{{**:spinny:**~~~**}}................."Thats the a thon dance" ; )

HHC
05-29-2011, 10:55 PM
paintmanycolors, you're right! You can create any type of art you wish!

HHC
05-29-2011, 10:56 PM
Oh, and I'll probably put the official thread up tomorrow, just so those who are almost a day ahead of me time wise have a place to get started. We start Wednesday June 1! :)

I am finding coming up with poetry is difficult ~ just seems to be coming too slowly! (and not trading either! LOL)... glad to prep some backgrounds for the ATART!

Can't wait to see what you creat Diome! So jealous that you and Sniisk get to play in person but have a great time!

diome and Sanna how fun to get to play in the ATART together!

CynthiaSillitoe
05-30-2011, 03:23 PM
Glad this has some week days. I think Saturday and Sunday I'm going to finally break down and move my art stuff upstairs, so I may lose those days. (Kind of dreading the chaos, but when it's done, I'll have an art studio with a door that closes. :) )

HHC
05-30-2011, 05:50 PM
Okay folks... here's the official Art a-thon thread:

cynthiasillitoe - I tried that (most of my stuff is stored upstairs but there is no heating up there so, being Winter in Australia, it is amazing how much finds its way back downstairs again :yes:) good luck with your move - you will find lots of 'treasures' that you have forgotten about

Maybe it's the bottles of beer that I have consumed ... but, I am laughing so hard! My studio is upstairs ... rather cold ... my living room - downstairs - looks like an art supply store threw up in it! :biglaugh:

I KNEW I wasn't the only one to do this - my husband was trying to tell me that 'everyone else' can keep their stuff in one place. . .hmphhhhh! He is SO wrong!

Oh, I'm not going to promise that it will be all in one place, and it will take me years to get organized, but the goal is to get me, my table and chair, and the stuff I use most (which I will push off the table into boxes) moved in. Then I can spend the rest of my life organizing and sorting, and can close the door when household distractions are interrupting my creating. I will be such a happy little artist. At least that's my mantra. What I really need is a magic wand and/or for the art stuff to march itself upstairs ala Mary Poppins.

HHC
05-31-2011, 11:41 AM
Cynthia, I despair of ever having an organized studio. I don't think it's in my nature. There are parts that are organized, and then there is the top of the art desk.... ;)

Mouseit

Is wondering if I should start hunting my art stuff out today and tomorrow ready to go on Friday....what time does it start? is it Noon still?
I now have 3 girls coming over to Scrap, create and generally have to much fun!

Well, and if it were too organized, I couldn't work on it. I was one of those kids who deliberately switched my crayons out of order.

Made a few backgrounds today. :)
