08-16-2011, 07:00 PM
Oh nooo I will be away in South Africa- my niece's wedding- will have to lurk from afar. Have fun- am jealous already!

08-16-2011, 08:47 PM
I will be about 2 weeks post-surgery....seems like a GREAT thing to get me back into the ATC swing!

Just remind me, HHC, ok? I have a feeling it may slip my mind!


08-16-2011, 10:39 PM
Will do Tam! Sending you healing energy and lots of prayers. :)

08-16-2011, 10:40 PM
Monarch suggested a one day theme of "art dolls". Isn't that a great idea?

08-16-2011, 11:27 PM
I've never made them - does anyone have any tips? Is there a particular size for them?

08-17-2011, 12:47 AM
Care to elaborate on 'Art Dolls'. What are they?

Hee, hee, our kids will be going to school with mismatched socks, no school supplies, and dirty uniforms, but we will be having fun and collecting new cards all weekend.
We ARE all straight on our priorities here, right?

08-17-2011, 12:16 PM
Search the Gallery to see what folks have done for art dolls. They are from paper, or cloth or are assemblages.... Dotee's are considered "art dolls" too, I believe.

Anyone who actually MAKES them feel free to clarify if I'm on the wrong track. I've only made a couple of small paper dolls, and not recently, so am not really qualified to define. LOL!

I intend to play. By that time I should be able to tackle the 2 stairs to my studio easily.

08-17-2011, 08:39 PM
Wil - look after yourself - healing wishes coming your way in droves.

08-17-2011, 08:51 PM
Marking and watching!!

08-17-2011, 09:37 PM
I can't wait!

08-18-2011, 09:40 AM
Oh Yay!!! (I have a little time to find my art table, last time I saw it , it was in my bedroom:unsure:, hmmmm. maybe under all those books,.......)
I'm in, art table or no art table. :jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:

08-18-2011, 12:05 PM

08-24-2011, 11:58 AM
Oh Dilys! I love flowers and plants. :D

08-24-2011, 12:01 PM

Ok, I'm in. These are too much fun, and so are y'all. ;)

08-26-2011, 12:51 PM
This is going to be a fun weekend, for sure! And it's less than a week away!

08-26-2011, 01:31 PM
I'd love to do some flower art, too!

I'm finishing up swaps and cleaning off my table in preparation. I need to buy some postage stamps, too. I always forget those until I have a ton of athon mail waiting to go out.

good grief who let the MOUse in the house... oh it's just THAT women from one of them down under places... Hi Mouseit.... and I can see my challanges so far are gonna be
Mouse cards... Bird cards.... Flowers/plants.... art dolls ???? gonna have to worry about that one... would take my whole weekend to figure out ONE doll...

08-27-2011, 11:03 PM
Now Ducky and Mouseit....you are both going to have to play nice to each other or you may have to stand in the corner. Remember it is a School Starting a-thon and you know what happens if you get sent to the Headmaster. :unsure:

08-27-2011, 11:16 PM
Children, children. Play nicely or you'll be sent to the principal/headmaster!

Although what they would do, and who they actually are is a mystery. LOL!

08-27-2011, 11:18 PM
Hey, there's a theme! "Sent to the principal/headmasters office"!

I'm sure we have enough creative folks who can come up with an interesting reason WHY you've been sent to the principal's office. LOL!

Lurking. Haven't done one of these yet so seeing what it is about! I am traveling some so not sure if I'll be able to participate.

08-27-2011, 11:31 PM
cRude hArt, all you gotta do is create some art and if you can share it by posting, cool!

If not, just stop in to see what folks are doing. Chatting about what you're creating is totally okay. There is a definitely a lot of eye candy going on during the weekend. :)

08-27-2011, 11:50 PM

08-28-2011, 01:41 AM
Hmmm Cathy.... Does this Principal have a nice butt? heehee

*flutters her eye lashes innocently* points at Ducky~~~~She did it.... heehee

Woo-hoo! It's been awhile since I played in an A-Thon! Thanks to theweavershand for telling me about this :) I have a few personal trades to finish up, and then maybe I can make some stuff to trade here.

08-28-2011, 10:29 AM
Even if I don't get a chance to creat any art...I'm gonna hang around just to see how much trouble Ducky & Mouseit can get into! HEE HEE HEE!!

08-29-2011, 03:18 PM
I AM IN!!!
been looking forward to an a-thon! I don't know if the idea card is full for this a-thon, but I would love to suggest some sheep art! what can I say, love the sheep y'all!

08-29-2011, 03:52 PM
Lurking. Haven't done one of these yet so seeing what it is about! I am traveling some so not sure if I'll be able to participate.

Hope you get some time. :) They're a great way to get to know people. Also, there's another in October if that's better for your schedule.

I'm not sure I'll be able to manage art dolls this weekend, but I look forward to seeing them all. And maybe I'll do some doll themed atcs.

I've got a crazy week ahead of me and to get through it, I keep chanting "athon this weekend, athon this weekend...."

08-30-2011, 12:22 AM
Hiya! I've never done an a-thon before... would someone mind explaining a little bit? >.>
