Eeeek! I looked for the next athon, and found there is only a Zentangle-athon left... and I don't think I can do Zens...

Anyone planning another athon? Atart? Draw-athon? Paint-athon? Something-athon?

*chewing nails* After the ATART and Jaw's Playdate, I'm having withdrawal...

I think it's a busy time of year for a lot of people. Summer is on those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and a lot of people are traveling.

(Thanks for the reminder about the ZAT coming up. I need to get the psyche thread going!)

I need to get motivated with art cos I haven't done any for ages and ages, maybe if not a Jean-a-thon we should have an encourage-a-thon!

Isn't that what the ATARTs are? Encourage everyone to just make art!!

Well count on Kay to take my name in vain! :skeptical: Besides, a jean-a-thon would end up being a Bailey's-and-chocolate festival and no art would get done.

Ok, draw a thon in July, I am so in!

(I think that would happen with a CindyJo-a-thon as well.)

Is it going to be a Bailey´s-a-thon? :eek: Or could is be All Types of Drinks a-thon? Is cola allowed or is it cheating?

1. I may be wrong, but I thought EVERY a-thon was a Bailey's athon?? We *could* have an AAaThon...All Alcoholathon...lol (Sanna, do y'all have AA in Finland? Alcoholics Anonymous recovery groups?)

2. I'm in for a draw/paint athon, but I never know how much time I'll have to devote to the thread, so I've never hosted. Depending on how I am feeling, I could have lots of time to play or none...

3. I'm not sure but I think Bailey's falls into the category of performance art, which is *still* art. :skeptical:

I like to draw and paint, but I think the Mostest fun athons (for me), have been the sticker a thon and stamp a thon.
Somethin' for everyone...you can draw and stamp, paint and sticker , or draw,paint,stamp and sticker.:jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:
Thats the kind of a thon I'm dreamin' of............

I'm in for whatever! I will probably be working through most of it, but can still play in the evenings. *looks for Bailey's ... finds the bottle empty and sitting in the recycle bin*
Just let me get to the store first ......... :P

Could these "summer-a-thons" last from Thu to Mon? Then also those weekend workers could play? I'm on vacation in July but I think most of you have vacation later.

I wouldn't mind a thur-mon athon! And I love the idea of a stamp athon. I have been garage saling and finding tons of stamps. my collection went from around 20 stamps to around 100 XD

I love the idea of Thursday-Monday. I'd like to see some collage and maybe altered playing cards, though stickers and stamps sound like fun, too. Maybe we should do ATARTs with challenges for specific media?

Tea_Roll

a123andpoof, yeah I know what you mean with the whole garage sell finds for stamps, that's where a lot of mine have come from and haven't gotten around to using all my new finds.

Cynthia, the altered playing cards idea sounds like a really good idea! I've been toying with the idea of starting a collection of suicide kings... hmmm maybe I'll go for a collection of altered suicide kings!! Moahahahahahahaha!!!!!

THAT'S what I need to do tomorrow!!! Go to the liquor store!!! Thanks for reminding me Ducky!

So "stickers"? so is that basically a collage a thon but a sticker has to be part of it?
Do postage stamps count as stickers?

How about we do a Summer/Winter Solstice Art-A-Thon this weekend? The longest/shortest day was yesterday so that could be an excuse, I know it's short notice but next weekend is your 4th July weekend so I am thinking a lot of people will have plans. Just an idea if anyone is up for it.

We have summer solstice festivals all over the country and I think I can't join. Also, I haven't seen my husband in June and it would be nice to have some time with him if possible. But of course I would love to join...

06-23-2011, 08:33 PM
Sniisk, I think you have an excellent reason to miss this one. :)

Tea_Roll
06-23-2011, 08:51 PM
Yup, it's settled... I'm envious of you sniisk. I don't think we have any summer solstice festivals around here, if they are, I've been missing them! I'll agree with HHC, you can be excused from this A-Thon. LoL.

It does sound like a good idea citykitty, if I have time in between the parking lot sell that I'm participating in I'll make cards of that theme, even if we don't have a proper thread set up.

For the sticker-a-thon postage stamps count. :) (I think all US postage is the sticker type now anyway but as Ducky pointed out to me the lick and stick stamps of old could probably be considered the original sticker.)
