I had so much fun starting my athon career with the ATART that ran from Dec 27 to Jan 2 last year that I was wondering if people would be interested in joining me for another ATART this year?

We had people who could only play for a single day, others who dipped in and out and then the hardcore athoners who were there from start to finish.

If we finish the ATART on Monday Jan 2 it gives us time to sort envelopes and finalise swaps before the Chunky Page athon starts on Friday Jan 6.

It would be my first attempt at hosting an athon so I hope I get a few friends to join me.

I hope to have some free days then. My MIL is visiting us then and I'm spending at least a part of that time with her.

Count me in....I think my new addiction is AThons! I love the fast pace of making them, trading quickly and getting the returns within the week. Thanks so much for
hosting this one!

i won't be able to play...traveling to AZ for a month then. Will not have a scanner. I will follow along and drool, tho!

Sounds like a great plan. I have the week off between Christmas and New Years Eve so lack of time is no excuse for me :-).

woo hoo!!! The athon is ON!!

Minnkel - the offer of stateside co-hosting is much appreciated (that way even the insomniacs and those who don't sleep while creating will have someone to talk to at all hours of the day and night:D) Thanks!

Count me in too!! Hubs is going into nightshifts Dec 26 so tis going to be real quiet and boring after Christmas, what better to spend it crafting! And if you're looking for a EU co-host for the hours in between OZ and the US, I'd love to help out:)

Donnacr
12-03-2011, 10:12 PM
craftyvox - I am very happy to add you as co-host. Now no-one can escape as we have a Host from every area of the globe - Europe, etc has craftyvox awake, the US has Minnkel and the downunders have me.

Nothing is required except creating something :). You just create what ever you want (it's open for ALL types of art) and post the pics here. Simple and fun :yes:.

I really wish I'll have enpugh free time. I won't have any free days before Christmas and that's why I think it could be fair to have some after it. I have been working way too much lately.

craftyvox

You're definitely entitled to some time off to craft in between Christmas and NY Sniisk! It would be awesome if you could join us for the ATART :)

12-07-2011, 08:43 AM
I was just logging on to find out if the idea had been proposed yet, and you're all far ahead of me! :) I hope it'll unofficially start a little early, for those of us with nothing planned or in need of creative company ON Christmas itself...but I know that it would be completely unfair for people to have to choose between celebrating the holiday and participating in the ATART! :laugh:
There's no telling whether I'll be in on it or not--the muse and the motivation are still absent, but you're all good company to keep. :wubclub:

Remember you can do backgrounds and stuff ahead of time. My family has learned that I am much more pleasant to be around if I get art time and online time even during holidays. It's so much easier than having me on the roof, lobbing snowballs at the carolers, while screaming "I just need some peace and quiet in the studio!" :err:

craftyvox
12-12-2011, 04:23 PM
Dunno about y'all but I'm definitely counting down the days not to Christmas but to to POST-Christmas/NY ATART!!! :yes:

Donnacr
12-12-2011, 07:24 PM
cynthia - I just burst into laughter at the mental picture of you on the roof (make it a very high roof as I live in a 2 storey house) lobbing snowballs at carollers. Thank you for a wonderful way to start my day!
In Australia we don't have carollers - probably something to do with getting sunburnt and eaten by mosquitoes while out and about and, if your mouth is open too long, you will get flies in it.

Christmas is coming WAY too fast but the ATART is dragging its heels - ain't Time funny?!

And I agree with you bout christmas! Is it just me or do some kids just get brattier every year. My brother just got a new phone for christmas and he wants to be upset my mom wouldnt buy him some new earphones!! Laaame! Then my sister and step sister are counting there presents and even if the price overall is the same they complain if one has more when some children have none! Maybe ill go on gift exchange strike and get my art on. Lol what a grinch:D

I'd like to join as well.

Completely newbie though - so just need to confirm; from dec 27 through jan 02 I just craft away - any type - and post in my available gallery - then hope people want to swap with me? While checking in to chat with other participants.

Someone mentioned games?

thatgeekyartgirl
12-18-2011, 06:11 AM
Dont know bout games and this my first ATART. But sounds bout right, you may also wanna post your art in the thread it makes it easier for people to see what you got :D

That's basically it, yes! :yes: It's also lots of fun to post (some or all) of your work in the ATART thread so we can all ohh and aww over them and leave you compliments! :D

Often there will be some themes for certain days you can create around as well. Like for instance in this ATART (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19647) back in June, one of the days the theme was to use postage stamps in your art, another day it was 'things with wings' etc. And during the recent inchie-a-thon (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=21198) in October one day had 'with text' as a theme. :) It's not at all a mandatory thing to just do work on that theme that day, just an added fun little challenge.

ATARTS (all -a-thons really) are So Much Fun! I've only been able to really participate in like 3 or 4 myself so far, but I've had a blast. I had never before created so much in such a short period of time - it's like once you start, it is almost impossible to stop. :wacko: And all the :chatterbox: is so much fun, and it's also great oppertunity to trade and get new beauties for your own collection! :spinny:

sniisk
12-18-2011, 07:18 AM
Are we going to have some themes (voluntaries, of course)? I would suggest an APC day, a Christmas day, a non-ATC day (chunkies, inchies etc.), a bird (or winged things) day...

craftyvox
12-18-2011, 07:30 AM
I dunno what Donna's plans are, but some themes definitaly sound like fun to add /nods

Moosecastle
12-18-2011, 08:04 AM
Thank you all:)

I like the idea of themes as inspiration:)

And as to :chatterbox: I was born talking:D

Donnacr
12-18-2011, 08:36 AM
For all those who are new to athons have a look towards the bottom of the categories when loading your pictures and you will find the 'A-Thon Gallery'. If you put your cards there (as well as showing them in the thread) people can easily find what you have made and make offers. I find it too hard to try and find where I originally showed my cards and update their status when they are traded but keeping your Gallery up to date is much easier.

What do people think of making most themes cover 2 days to allow for people to dip and choose:
Tues 27 - Christmas theme
Wed 28 - APC and/or red/black/white
Thurs 29 - APC and/or monochrome
Fri 30 - non-ATC (Inchies, Twinchies, Chunkies) and/or ?
Sat 31 - non-ATC and/ or?
Sun 1 - New Year - resolutions, greeting, parties, etc
Mon 2 - ?

sniisk
12-18-2011, 08:42 AM
Donna, sounds good :). I think most of us cannot play every day and that helps people joining the fun.

sharlene54
12-18-2011, 08:45 AM
I love those themes. I'm going to be working on backgrounds.

It is hard to keep up both the thread and gallery. I keep a log of the post number when I post my cards so I can go back to up date.

Happy holidays to all.:laugh:

sniisk
12-18-2011, 08:56 AM
I usually bookmark all the posts where I have my available cards. Then it's easy to go and update them also in the thread.

sharlene54
12-18-2011, 09:11 AM
I don't know how to bookmark in the thread.

It sounds like it would be a good way to go back, then you won't need to write down the post numbers.

Sniisk, could you tell me how to do that?

sniisk
12-18-2011, 09:14 AM
The easiest way to bookmark one post (not all the thread) is first to click the number of the post you want to save in your bookmarks. Then, go to your Bookmarks toolbar in your browser and click Bookmark This Page. You should then have it in your bookmark list.

sharlene54
12-18-2011, 09:28 AM
That is great, Sanna. Thanks so much. I will be using that often. You are bring me into the "21st century" as is said.

Paper and pen is not a bad option but takes more time = less time for crafting :laugh:.

You are right, but not only that, I can see all my post at a quick glance. AND have more time for creating,

12-18-2011, 12:51 PM
One thing though, Finances! .... There's this ATART and then 7th Jan is a CPAT (Chunky Page athon) so I will be keeping envelopes open for both, as I can't afford the postage twice in more or less a week!

sniisk
12-18-2011, 12:54 PM
Ibus, that's what we all could do :yes:. Also, because everything is OK but I don't like packing...

The theme for monday jan 02 could be "All the good things in life".

After spending too much money on x-mas, maybe still having a hangover from new years (or from sleep deprevation attending ATART) and january's pile of bills ahead it might be nice to make some of the good things visual ;):D

thatgeekyartgirl

sharlene54
12-18-2011, 01:46 PM
I think that is a great theme for Mon, 2/2/12. It will get my mind off my bills to be paid, and my lack of sleep from the night before.

sniisk
12-18-2011, 01:50 PM
I'm happy not to have any extra bills is January. We are used to have "poor" Christmas just because we don't like all those glamour things people are having here. We cook simple, but delicious, food and have only one small present for one family member.

Smart idea Ibus!! I hope to be able to play in both athons, though I also have exams coming up in the second half of January so prolly will be short on time during the CPAT. It's definitely a good idea for those of us short on postage to keep the envies open until after the second marathon!

January 1rst the postage prices go up here meh. As we now have these 'forever' stamps here as well since 2010, I've gone a little overboard and bought a crapload of stamps before the prices go up so I "save" ranging from 2 to 5 cent per enveloppe from January on. In itself not a huge saving, but it definitely adds up over the months! :) I think I've read that USPS also is increasing prices, so maybe this is an idea for others as well.

Dec.26 stay in bed all day dreaming of stuff to make for a thon, and resting up.
Dec.27 make a big pot of tea, get out leftovers to eat, turn off phone , and start a thoning.

My adult children are all trained for "Mama's A thons"......whenever I say theres a athon this week end , they get that glazed look in their eyes, mumbling something about "Oh Lord....." ( I think they're praying for me) ; ) :yes::yes::yes:

Okay, I think mum will try to talk me into playing and I'll have to check out all the cards she makes anyway so I may as well say I'll play too. I will be kidnapping her sometime on the 27th to play Laser Skirmish and ten-pin bowling though, so one of the other hosts will have to take over for a few hours. :)

And I'm fine keeping up with hosting duties on the 27th as long as it's during my waking hours! :D Which ranges from hmm like 11am (can't want to have a goooood long layin after christmas!) till ~2am on the 28th I think at least hehe.

Well my hopes of having a better internet with the new antenna and booster may have flown out the window. We set it a couple days ago and switched to a MiFi option. The USB wireless internet I had was wearing out and I can not get a new one, things have been new and improved :(.

Well my husband set up the antenna and had to go back to work before I got the MiFi all set up on the computers. I took my laptop into town and got it working but it is not hooked up to my scanner printer.

And I hope by mid January we can have everything working and maybe even "new and improved" at least a little.

So I will have to struggle through with really poor internet and try using photos to upload what art I do. Every page loads sooo slow and often fails so uploading pictures does not work most of the time. This may all be more time consuming and stressful than I want. But I will drop in and maybe try to work on some art for my self, or on my journal pages for CJ group.

craftyvox - I am luvloz's mum. She signed me up to this site before I went to live in China for 2 years with my husband, thinking that I would have nothing to do otherwise. I found things to do :laugh:

Ahh Donna, I *thought* so but didn't want to make the wrong assumptions heh. And how sweet is that! So it was your daughter who got you addicted to making ATCs or the other way around? My mum is really creative and handy as well, though she hasn't done much papercrafting so far, yet. I say yet as we plan on changing that come 2012! :) I'm really looking forward to double crafting sessions in my new craftroom once we move to the new house (which won't be until around summer but it's really something to look forward to!. :D

I was a yarn crafter - crochet, knitting, cross-stitch when I joined ATCs. I have enjoyed experimenting with all manner of new paper crafting techniques since joining (and might even manage to draw in a few years:D)

Oh I am so hoping to get to play in this one with you all!

I saw post Xmas and thought maybe it might start today and today was beautifully, quiet and free for me for the most part. My Hubby went skiing and I'm just about done with the commission I'm working on, just lots of UV protective coating and spraying to do, with lots of drying time. My Son has his new Xmas games to play and I'm just settling down with a nice cup of coffee.

I'm going to start trying to move things around on my schedule for tomorrow. :) Happy to see you all!

Donna, should this thread be closed by now? Just because it's easier to follow a discussion in one thread :).
