I have a few winged cards but it is nearly 1am again so I am off to bed, especially as it is Father's Day in Australia tomorrow/ today and I have the family coming over for a home cooked roast with the works - spent the day (when not crafting) cleaning, need to do find the dining table now as it is covered in all my crafting 'stuff' - oops!

Very pretty, I love these dresses. Are they purchased or did you make them somehow?

Hello Everyone!

Man! Saturday has been a fabulous art day for you all! Lots of creativity raining down on this thread!

I'm home from my roadtrip! Got home a lot earlier than I had anticipated, which is good! Had a great time! Got to see my grand daughter but the grandson was off with his other granny so I didn't even lay eyes on him. That's OK though, I'm heading back at the end of the week to stay for a few days with them.

AND I did art while I was gone! 7 dotee dolls-I missed most of the scenery along the way but I've seen that scenery 1000 times already so I didn't really miss much! I still need to put hangers on the dotees....forgot to take that string with me....so will post them all after while.
Right now, I'm heading outside to give the dog a bath!

and look at ALL the goodies I am missing... but I did spy a DUCK... I would click on it Mouseit, but I need to go to bed in a couple hours.... yes, it is taking that long...

#2 ... Handsome Husband's vehicle died ... what's up with that?! 300,000 miles in 18 years is not too much!!!
#3 ... My local Starbucks was "Closed Temporarily - All Day Today" ... aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh work without caffeine?!! I did an emergency run at 11am to a local grocery store that has a Starbucks inside ...
So ... guess it happens in threes!

I was soooo looking forward to decompressing by making some ATCs today after a long stressfilled week. Then my computer blew up the morning and I've spent the ENTIRE day selecting and trying to set up my new computer. ARGH!!! BUT, my 11-year-old daughter got some done for the Child/Adult swap. Can you tell she loves zettis?

If we could turn creativity into energy, we could put the electric companies out of business people! You all are on fire tonight! Wonderful artwork!!!

Jaw, sorry you've had a '3 day'....those things usually do happen in threes.

While contemplating whether to put the hangers on the dotees or not, I made this spider. He's for trade if anyone is interested. I'm in need of paper for little books so I will trade him for paper or a chunky page with an elephant on it. Or if you have something else to trade, we can discuss that as well. I'm open for about anything really.
He's made from an old Christmas lightbulb...like you'd put on the outside of your house....and gold tone wire with gold dimensional paint on his backend. I'll send him with his legs folded back and you'll have to straighten them out when he arrives.

After making the spider, I did put hangers on the dotees. I can't count. There were 8 of them sewn today. I made their bodies a few weeks ago and put them together today on the road trip while riding in the back seat.
If you are interested in a dotee shoot me off a PM. I'll trade for just about anything. I am on the hunt for paper for little book pages. I will also trade for a chunky page or if you have something else we can discuss that.

orange flower dotee
green butterfly dotee
pink butterfly dotee
purple zebra dotee

Well, this a-thon had an unexpected positive side effect--I have found many things that I had lost over time! Only one more missing item that I am looking for, and I have a feeling it went to camp and didn't return--or is in a box somewhere.

So--successful a-thon! LOL

yesterday and today I have been working up a bit of stitching for a set of personal trade cards, hope to add scan before the time is up.depends on how many holes I stitch in my fingers before then.. if I wear a thimble, I automatically use the next fingers that are not thimbled. :unsure: why?

Dear Cee-Emm
I used to be like you with a thimble. But then I trained and worked as a tailor in theatre for a about 5 years and believe me, you will use the thimble in a situation like that, it's pure self defense! So, just keep trying and one day, it'll finally feel right, and you'll never be able to go back, it's worth it.

BTW - your sewing speed will go WAY up in no time too! You'll be wondering what took you so long to make the switch :biglaugh:

Ducky so sorry that the lag monster has a grip on things for you. I am actually doing about normal today with my internet and computer.

Ok I did 4 Atc's But I owe Jewel three cards so if she likes any of them she gets first pick. I am pretty sure I will be doing more. I am also looking at maybe making some paper dolls. But I do not want to start collecting them so will trade for something else.

Just about got the water heater installed now! I have been helpfully cracking jokes and reading instructions ~ like a true supervisor should! Hoping to get a little arting in before I crash (allergies all of a sudden decided to kick my butt ~ or maybe it is my body just warning me not to allow my Starbucks to be 3 hours late again)

tomorrow we go to paint the entire inside of our daughter's new house ... think I'll have the grandbabies paint pictures on the walls first ~ so there will always be a hidden painting.

I am having a lazy day today. I overdid it last weekend and last week, so I need to recharge my batteries. So today is all about creating, napping, reading. This morning I did some inchies and some ATCs

For the Sugar babies swap:

Just took a peak on the forum for the first time in a long while and ran straight into all kinds of fun ATART cards! There's unfortunately some boring must-do tasks on my list for today but maybe I can sneak in some crafting later. I've been meaning to get back into it for a couple of weeks now but life keeps getting in the way. But one just has to make room for some ATART right?:)

Hi all you wonderful A thoner type artists!!
just breaks my heart that I cannot play as I once did.........decided to come clean (especially those that "knew" me back in the day when I was more prolific )
I have physical prob that causes me alot of pain when I sit. And it ain't "buttitus" , thats what ya get when you a thon for five days!and nope, it ain't the miserable "roids".....combo of alot of scar tissue, arthur-itus, fibromyalgia, osteo....oh heck....its alot of crappola (whoops can I say that?) heehee
so I've been stewing with idea's and unable to sit at art table.................SO, I'm getting creative....I bought a dry erase board, attached it to wall, set up lights and supplies and paint standing up!
Less than ideal, but (hopefullY) this prob will subside and I can sit like I used to, (course by then my legs will have give out;)
WONDERFUL ART HERE!!!!!!!You all are just super and I drool all the way through the thread.
Heres all I've been able to get done.............BUT theres tomorrow and my "new" set up:D

Just saw this. Hope it works! During a time when I was really anemic, I learned to quilt lying down flat. It wasn't easy--and these were small pieces that didn't need a frame--but you do what you gotta do! Of course, then when I started feeling better, I didn't remember how to quilt sitting up. :wub:

Hello all you great gals... me and ducky are passing throught .... really slow tho.
I thinking I have an internet card problem as things sooooooo slow that my dial up was faster... can't even load up my cards today... tried and never did complet the upload...

Paint Colors.. dang gal, I know you have been fighting with your pain a LOng time.. but yes, standing might be the way to go right now... after all, the GREAT artist stood at an easle.. just think smaller...
big HELLO to Sanna... sure is naked here in our marathon without you my friend...
oh and Static Embrace... I'm afraid I can't be much help for you on wanting to sell your art... I do know many of the members here do and there is a place here that talks about this... maybe one of the other gals here can tell you what thread it is... I would look but being my computer right now is so slow, I afraid if I looked it up I wouldn't make it back here for a few hours... LOL...
so, here I sit... don't want to leave all this fun, but dang.. just not gonna be able to move around here .... hope I can figure out what my problem with these computers are... catch up when I can get back on/in

:twitcy: I have all kinds of trouble with my beeswax too. I have a yellowish wax and I kept lifting stuff off when I tried. Mrubyjean are your cards made with whole layers or do you attach cut out pieces?

Wildholly, I wish I could have gone. Maybe I can attend a Gathering if it is close enough and I can save up $$$ to go well enough in advance! That would be so much fun!

Hey gang...I am ATARTed out for the day. So as soon as this gets uploaded, I am calling it a day. I have 8 - 10 unread PMs, and will get to them tomorrow. I am trading on a first-asked-gets-the-card basis, so you will still have your place "in line". This has been so much fun, but maybe I am overdoing it.

:twitcy: I have all kinds of trouble with my beeswax too. I have a yellowish wax and I kept lifting stuff off when I tried. Mrubyjean are your cards made with whole layers or do you attach cut out pieces?

Linda, it depends on the card...I do both.;) The ones with whole layers are definitely easier to make. On some of mine I attach torn pieces onto the first layer and then use a whole layer over it. When I use little pieces on the top layer, I rub the beeswax with my fingers as the card cools to help it adhere. Also, I make sure my iron is not too hot.

I'm hoping I might get in an evening session. So much wonderful art!

Such wonderful art still being created! I worked on some simple and yet satisfying cute cat postcards tonight. (After such a stressful week I needed to do something that was straightforward and not elaborate.) Too tired so I'll upload them tomorrow. Have a good night everyone!

Hi everyone!
I see you all are still cranking out some masterpieces! I'm too wore out to do any art today. I'm making some fingerpaint this evening to take to my friend so he and his two little boys can play. Will do that tomorrow sometime when I'm out and about.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend! One more day to art and stay home and then it's back to work.
Happy Arting everyone!

Hey All. I wanted to let you know that even though I have not made anything to trade this weekend, I have been lurking here and there and enjoying all the fun chatter and seeing everyone's creations. You don't know how much I appreciated being able to do that.

I received a call Friday afternoon that a dear friend had died and frankly I was too depressed to do much of anything all day Saturday and half of Sunday. But tonight I went to my friend's daughter's house to help her put together two memory boards of photos to display at the memorial service, and of course we talked the entire time, shared a lot of laughs, and now I finally feel like I am pulling out of this blue funk. I may even make something yet tonight.

In the meantime, here are some pages from a 5x7 photo album that I had made for my friend. She saw it before she died, but I had brought it back home with me in order to add the embellishments and to type up a journaling card to tuck into the back. I finished those things today and was able to give it to her daughter tonight (she had not seen it).

I have been on a cleaning jag... don't know why it hit me, but I have to take advantage when it does. I've actually recycled a bunch of stuff I'd normally keep for art, but really, how much of this stuff do I need? LOL!

Oh Helen, will you come to my house?! It needs some good cleaning and organizing! :yes:

Miss Iowa, I am so sorry about the loss of your dear friend! I lost one a few months ago and even though I knew it was coming, it was horrible nonetheless. :( Your photo album pages for her are just beautiful - I'm glad that she had a chance to see them! And now her daughter will have something to really treasure - what a meaningful, heartfelt gift! I'll be thinking about you in the days ahead. *Hugs*

We (my Handsome Hubby and I)took a lovely walk this morning along the Old Columbia highway which is now shut down to motorist and is a beautiful scenic hike with sweeping vista views of the river. We only did about 3 miles but it was wonderful and about a mile and 1/2 in we found a surprise waterfall that isn't normally there.

Well, today was kind of one of those days...grocery shopping, washing clothes, etc. & trying to get caught up on the album for a scrap class I'm taking:twitcy:

I did get one card done and it's...well, kinda weird. I was given this magazine clipping that became the background, & the rest of the stuff is just that, stuff... anyway it's really *different* for me, not my usual style, but here is "Electronic Age" :

It works though! good combo of elements and colours.

Wow - they're all so lovely - but I think the Window one takes the cake!

You all made lots of great art while I slept the day away!
I got these two done before my body demanded a nap late this morning. This is probably all I will get done for the ATART. Need to finish up my crowned cats so they can go postal with all the ATART art tomorrow or Wednesday.

I still have little books and dotee dolls and ATCs to trade. If you're interested, shoot me off a PM please.

Helen and Ducky thanks so much for hosting a wonderful ATART this weekend!

WOW! The great art just keeps coming!

Many thanks to HHC and Ducky for hosting another fun weekend! :)

I know several are sick, in pain or missing a loved one right now, and some trying to put the pieces back after the earthquake and hurricane and though I have not mentioned you by name I am keeping each of you in my thoughts and prayers. It was good to share a weekend of creativity together.

I didn't get anything made during the -athon, but I want to thank everyone for sharing their wonderful creations in the thread and for the lively conversation. Ducky, you totally cracked me up this weekend. It helped remind me that we need to enjoy life and each others company while we can. Also, thank you to several for the kind expressions of sympathy for the loss of my friend. It's a sad event for me and it's been hard to think positively.

(Although on the bright side, I did do some cleaning in my craft room today, since I just wasn't up to making anything! Maybe I'm turning the corner.)

Thank you for hosting Helen and Nancy! I hope we'll have many players also in the future. I think there were about 50 players posting art in the thread.

Dear Everyone
I want to thank our hosts and all you participants of my first -athon. You have all made a wonderful experience for this newbie. I appreciate the wonderful advice, patience and fantastic trades. It was great to meet new artists and re-connect with some I haven't traded with in several months.

It was great - and that's because of all of you.
So, thank you all very much.
