This a-thon is open to everyone and every kind of level and types of art.

What IS an A-THON?
It’s a marathon when you can create art, done over the same time in each time zone. This thread is going to be our crafting room.

Start creating art when it's time to start, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Trading and chatting are going on all the time.

When you find a piece of art you would like to trade, please SEND A PERSONAL MESSAGE (pm) to that person asking for a trade. Please DO NOT post requests for trades to the thread. It can get way too confusing.

Note: If you do make a trade, please be sure to send to your trade partner within two weeks. If you’re running late, communicate!

And you will… remember you can click the You Rock button and leave it there.

From your atcsforall.com gallery:
It’s easiest to have two windows open.
1) Go to your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location”.
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
3) Go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
4) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl V) into the window that pops up and hit OK - that puts the code into your post for your picture to show up; (you paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box)
5) and then you're done.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/296/small/1_64.jpg [/IMG

(leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. Find the word or letters s m l in the address and change it to 'small' or 's'.

From your computer:
1. Click POST REPLY at the bottom of the messages screen. Above the message box, click the paperclip next to the smiley face. Then upload as usual. This will upload your picture as a thumbnail.
2. If you go into the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the messages screen, click GO ADVANCED and you will get the paperclip above the message box.

From a flickr or photobucket account:

NEW TO A-THONS? If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me or justducky or post your questions to the thread. We have a lot of experienced art-a-thoners who are more than willing to help those of you new to this craziness.

IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR USERNAME ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARDS. You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

I'll be here as much as I can. :)

03-12-2013, 06:25 PM
I'll be there also. Hi to everyone.

How are you feeling Kristin?

03-12-2013, 08:08 PM
Hi Sharlene! Fighting migraines - I see a pain specialist soon. I'm therapeutic with my med for the blood clots and that's a big relief. Still trying to solve some old health problems that are now an issue and could send me back to the hospital. It's nerve wracking but I have a good team of docs. Going slow and when I'm up to it I do a little art. :)

03-12-2013, 08:47 PM
working much of the weekend, but will try to do a little something. :)

03-12-2013, 10:49 PM
My thoughts are with you, Kristin. Hope you can join the fun.

03-13-2013, 03:03 AM
welcome to all those familiar names and a special welcome to hippie vampire. if you have any questions please feel free to ask either in the thread or via PM - these athons are SO much fun (even if a trifle chaotic :D)

03-13-2013, 05:46 AM
looking forward to this one..

03-13-2013, 10:07 AM
I'll at least be observing...seeing all the great art. Hope to be a little active too.

03-13-2013, 10:08 AM
I will join in for a look now and then, not sure if I will be able to do some atc's.
Not on thursday nor on saturday for sure, maybe sunday????

03-13-2013, 10:13 AM
Sorry to hear you are not well Kristin. Take care and see you here whenever! I hope to play as well... I can start tonight!

03-13-2013, 11:26 AM
:jiggy: Just a few hours to go! :D

03-13-2013, 01:15 PM
Thanks for letting me know about this A-Thon, Donna! IŽll play at least a bit. I just returned back home again from a hobby and craft fair and got some new "toys". **LOL** Just perfect:D

03-13-2013, 01:47 PM
You go miloccpep! Can't wait to see your art!

03-13-2013, 06:50 PM
It is Thursday here in Sydney but unfortunately I am at work. I am teaching until 5.00pm today so won't be able to do anything till after I get home

03-13-2013, 07:16 PM
I will be co-hosting with Donnacr. I look forward to all the great and fun art over the next few days.

I have some backgrounds cut and ready. Is it Thursday yet any where in the world? I need to check my world clock I downloaded onto my iPad.

I'm out to play cards with my gang. See you later.

03-13-2013, 07:34 PM
Half past midnight here in Germany! :jiggy: *starts playing*

03-13-2013, 07:48 PM
As soon as I get home from work I am going to see what I can conjure up LOL

03-13-2013, 08:38 PM
Who will be the first to post??

03-13-2013, 09:02 PM
LOL! I wanted to start @ midnight but my eyelids said differently! I'll post something I created yesterday for a swap to start us off.
Just to get in the mood for today, I think I'll fold 2 more Harlequin from the paper I used yesterday. Anything goes right?Not necessary St Pat's theme?

03-13-2013, 09:16 PM
Haha, I could have bet you'd start us off, Rita! :D
I really don't like a circus theme normally, but those are fun! And I'm in awe of your origami skills. ;) *strangles her cranes*

Just to give you all a laugh: I managed to finish ALL my adhesives this evening! Which means two glue sticks, two tape dispensers (do you really say that??? never heard it) and a bottle of wet glue. What the heck? How can everything be empty at the same bloody time? :twitcy:
So, nothing to post until I go and buy new glue... *sigh*

Good night! :wubclub:

03-13-2013, 09:20 PM
Hahaha.....use your spittle! LOL!
When I run out of glue, I use double-sided tape. You have any?

03-13-2013, 09:23 PM
No flat tape - the one I have is some kind of construction aid and you could probably get an elephant to stick to your wall with it, but it's really thick... Well, I'll just brave the snow masses tomorrow and go get some new glue. ;)

03-13-2013, 09:59 PM
Counting down!!!! - only 4 more hours at work

03-13-2013, 10:26 PM
Hey Rita!! Everything go. All art is in. Love those Harlequin.

Prayer at night, if I went shopping for glue, I'd come home with a bag full stuff. I cannot resist.

03-13-2013, 10:39 PM
For Trade
Shamrock Harlequin: Origami, Spangles, Punch Art, on Green Background to go with today's theme - all things green. Traded

great work Rita to start us off - I am home now and once dinner is over and a bit of getting ready for tomorrow I will try and make some art

03-14-2013, 04:06 AM
I am making mini Origami books and later bookshelf to accommodate the books.
Sizes after folding : 2.3/4cm sq from 160cm sq paper being the large in the pic and the smallest being less that 1 1/2 cm sq. Each book has 5 pages and front n back covers. It also has a spine! Each book has pages you can write on, art on.

03-14-2013, 04:45 AM
OMG, Rita, these books are adorable!!

I havenŽt anything to trade for yet. Have been playing with my new Glimmer Mists and Dyelusion Inks and made a bunch of backgrounds.

03-14-2013, 06:18 AM
Okay, my first two:

Good morning all. We are off to a great start.

Rita, I love those little book. I hope I can trade for one before they are gone.

Evalila, great cards-the colors blend together so well. Is that from your new inks and sprays?

03-14-2013, 11:34 AM
Thank you, sharlene:) Yes, they are made with Glimmer Mist and ink sprays - beside other things;)

03-14-2013, 12:22 PM
Ooooh, a great start! I hope to have time to play. At least I can start a bit today.

03-14-2013, 12:23 PM
Back in the hospital again. Hope they don't keep me. There is a marathon going on!

Tell them that an a-thon has a lot of healing effects :). Take care of yourself. I wish I could be there to help you :wubclub:.

03-14-2013, 12:56 PM
Hello all! I will play a little bit later in this athon. Tonight I am teaching a Polymer clay mosaics class, I am really looking forward to it! Just a shame I do not have time to play myself :sad:

03-14-2013, 01:46 PM
And the next two birdies - sorry for the bad pics:(

03-14-2013, 09:10 PM
I've been working on some little books called Zines for my Etsy site. They have 16 pictures of the (Infamous) Trouble the Cat in them. If anyone likes or collects the Kitty, you can go take a look.

03-14-2013, 09:43 PM
All the BEST Jewels! And of course cyber hugs to Twinkie the HERO of Zines!

03-14-2013, 09:49 PM
Evalila I love those birds and Jewels your zines are fabulous.

Spent the morning in the er with an out of control migraine and then spent all afternoon in the docs office. Got home and can't keep my eyes open with all the meds they gave me. At least I'm home and in less pain- for the moment.

03-14-2013, 09:53 PM
Glad to hear you are home, Kristin! Rest well, and chat with you later.

03-14-2013, 09:59 PM
Soooo nice to have you all chatting away. For all you confused artist out there, it is almost Fri.

Love those Zines. I never heard of them before. They are too cute.

03-14-2013, 10:01 PM
I hope you feel better soon, Kristin.

03-14-2013, 10:03 PM
Glad you are home and comfortable, Kristin!

03-14-2013, 10:09 PM
Kristin, glad you are at home. Rest up and let your body heal. Feel better soon so you can engage in"ATC therapy".

03-14-2013, 10:55 PM
Thanks for taking the Hosting reins Sharlene - I go MIA having thrown my back out just as an Athon starts!?! What rotten timing!
I have managed some cards for the Athon but they are not green. I had to finish some flower cards for ferretgirl's 'Flower power challenge' swap and I got slightly carried away.:embarrassed:I will show you what I made for the swap (unmarked) and then the cards which came from them.
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/1_scan0018.jpg(this one started me looking at my teabag papers) the next 4 cards all used the same design pattern (see thumbnail)
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/1_scan0019.jpg http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/8_scan0022.jpgStPATART #1 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/7_scan0023.jpg#2 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/9_scan0024.jpg#3

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/9_scan0026.jpg#5 this card is 4 1/2" tall but I loved the top so left it. To cut it down to 3 1/2 you lose the top bud

03-14-2013, 11:04 PM
KESagers - what a horrible Host I am!! I hope that you are asleep right now and that you feel much better when you awaken. We would love to see some of your art before the Athon finishes.

03-14-2013, 11:20 PM
Thank you for the invite. Exhausted after conducting parent teacher interviews tonight but I will be back!

03-15-2013, 02:54 AM
Hi Everyone! Wasn't sure if I was going to have time to join you all this weekend, but think I may be able to squeeze a few cards in tonight and over the coming days. I am looking forward to everyone's beautiful creations to admire over the coming days also and what a fabulous start everyone is off too already! :)

03-15-2013, 03:25 AM
Good morning, just went through the thread....hope you are better Kristin, and poor ducky dripping nose???? Will be chased out of my room in about 15 minutes, Dagmara is cleaning.... so till later, hopefully

03-15-2013, 09:14 AM
Good morning to all.

Glad to see Donnacr able to join in. I hope you are better.

I'm off to my Woman's club meeting. Our topic is "Inventors". It should be an interesting discusion. See you later.

03-15-2013, 10:24 AM
Good morning! Lovely cards, Donna, Evalila, & Rita!
I am just checking in so I will get updates on my phone until I can play. Busy weekend for me but I hope to get a few cards done anyway!
Have fun ladies, and hope you are feeling better Ducky & Kristin!

03-15-2013, 11:41 AM
Thinks Jewels aught to write a picture story book starring "Trouble"

03-15-2013, 11:49 AM

I had a great discussion group. Always very interesting.

Hi to Cynthia and Blanche.

I've thought about it but I have no idea how you get published.

03-15-2013, 01:15 PM
I seem to be in a Rainbow mood today. So here's some color. The Purple in the Rainbow didn't scan well. Not sure why.

I've thought about it but I have no idea how you get published.

What about www.lulu.com?

03-15-2013, 01:43 PM
Jewels, I think you could also do greeting cards to sell on Etsy. No idea what's involved or if it's cost-effective....but I'd buy some! Just love that kitty-cat!

A couple from me:



03-15-2013, 01:56 PM
Jewels, those cards are so darn cute.
And Cynthia, great cards.

03-15-2013, 02:24 PM
Thanks, Evalila. I'd never heard of that site.

There are a few Kitty Greeting cards there if you're interested, Cynthia. And if anyone wants particular pictures, I could get them made up easily. Prints or cards.

03-15-2013, 02:35 PM
Well, it wasn't my day. I fainted at work (again) and have been feeling ill after that. I don't think that I can make anything today but I'll start tomorrow.

03-15-2013, 02:43 PM
You fainted at work Sanna?? Please take care of yourself! Big hugs coming your way and to all who are feeling not well:yes:

03-15-2013, 03:47 PM
Oh Sanna ~ I hope you feel better soon!

03-15-2013, 05:01 PM
Sanna I'm so sorry you fainted. I hope u feel better soon. I am back at the er again. They don't know why.

03-15-2013, 05:03 PM
I'm a bit late but I'm going to try to join in. Here's what I've been up to this evening. Travel themed set (postcards, ATCs and inchies) Really want to trade them as a set.


03-15-2013, 05:05 PM
I hate housework - that is all

03-15-2013, 05:14 PM
just back from a week away and find myself home alone for most of the weekend. if i can get up the gumption to do more than sleep...ill see what i can come up with. may be just what i need to climb out of this funk.

03-15-2013, 05:42 PM
Maybe we need to send Good Luck Shamrocks to both Sanna and Kristin. Sounds like they need some.

03-15-2013, 06:22 PM
WeAre138, I really like that set! <3

All you ill people: Get better, please! I hate to know you're suffering... :cry:

I've had the day from hell today - we got a new washing machine and fridge, and after my mom and I had been cleaning the whole day (you know, behind the machines and stuff), my dad came home and just wanted to take the pipes from the washing machine and instead opened the pressure pipe (can you say that?)... there was water everywhere. *headdesk* It was horrible! We're all knackered now and I didn't really get to play. :sad:

I made this little birdie yesterday, though. :) Traded, thanks a lot! <3

03-15-2013, 06:33 PM
Aw, I love that birdie, really cute

03-15-2013, 06:35 PM
Lots of pretties shown!!! Sanna and Kristin get to feeling better, please!

I plan on joining in on this athon sometime today. I've been working on stars for a swap. Making good leadway on the project but none of them are for trade, unfortunately. I'll see what I can come up with and be back later!
Art on!

03-15-2013, 06:37 PM
Here's another set I put together. Two ATCs, two postcards, a bookmark.

03-15-2013, 06:58 PM
Oh my gosh, those are sooooo cute! <3

03-15-2013, 06:59 PM
Thanks :)

03-15-2013, 07:21 PM
Morning Ladies!!!
Hope all our not well girls are getting better fast!!!!
Saturday already here and I have lots to do as I have a stampin up party tomorrow..LOL Yep even do that once in a while.

Jewels if you did a google search for "publishing a picture book" you would get a heap of information. Plus it would be childrens books pacific - I looked into it a while ago....can't remember the publishers etc that I looked at.

03-15-2013, 07:21 PM
Sanna-I hope you are feeling better. Take it easy and rest.
Kristin-we are thinking of you to get well soon.
Welcome to WeAre38, theweavershand and dmnh
I hate housework, as well. I avoid it until I can't any more.

Both of you....feel better soon!

03-15-2013, 08:40 PM
Good Morning Everyone!

Sanna, Kirsten and anyone else not well, I hope you are all feeling better soon.

I managed a couple of cards last night so will post pics a little later.

Beautiful art being posted so far everyone! I love admiring these as much as playing along.

Hope you all have a wonderful day/night in your part of the world. :)

Gorgeous cards everyone! I'm going to start painting tonight.

03-15-2013, 09:24 PM
Tight-roper A-Trembling: Stamping on Paint-Chip on Black Background, colored markers.

Inspired by all the colored lines when googling 'wreck the journal'. Thought I'll try it. Not as easy as it looks.

03-15-2013, 09:31 PM
Hi Ducky! Good to know you are off the 'sick list'! Yeah, let's do a 'Get Well Marathon'!
Kristin and Sanna, get well real soon, please. It's worrying to know quite a few of us are unwell at this moment!

03-15-2013, 09:45 PM
A "get well marathon!"...wonderful idea, Ducky!

03-15-2013, 09:50 PM
I guess it's about time for me to pop my head in and see what you all are concocting!!

SO MUCH AWESOME! I'm REALLY gonna have to make an effort to play a bit this weekend!

I've been down with an infection all week, so I'm now FAR behind on swap stuff. Might post my little creations as I get them done.
In the mean time, 2 of my best friends in the world have gotten themselves published, and I was working through reading their stories. One of them I saw last weekend, and she's really pushing me to get my first Short-Story published. There's so much potential for it, just need the time to sit and write with some good music. I fiddled around with a book cover for it, and that's in my gallery if anyone wants to take a peek.

I'm about to pop in a movie "Smart Money" from 1931 for inspiration while I'm stiching away on a few plushies for a swap. Will check in later!

03-15-2013, 09:50 PM
Healing energy to Sanna and Kristin ... Hope whatever is going on gets better soon. Ducky glad you are up and running again after your yucky cold.

I am enjoying looking at what folks are creating. Going to try to find some art time tomorrow.

03-15-2013, 09:54 PM
Since there isn't a challenge for Sat., how about found poetry.

My next batch of cards:

03-15-2013, 09:58 PM
We certainly need a "get well" marathon. We send all the endorphins we can muster up to all those who need them.

03-15-2013, 11:33 PM
good night all-I can't stay awake any longer. More eye candy tomorrow and hopefully good news from all those not feeling well.

03-15-2013, 11:48 PM
Been a slow start as my brain was having trouble coming up with an idea or two but it did settle on a series of St Pat's animals - here is the first


03-15-2013, 11:52 PM
Well, best laid plans....I couldn't find my sewing needle to save my life, and when I decided to just watch my movie, an old friend stopped by to check out the new house. Now I'm beat.

Will hopefully be able to join with SOMETHING....

In the mean time... ART ON!

03-16-2013, 12:01 AM
Found poetry sounds great to me. :)

03-16-2013, 12:24 AM
You girls quake me up and I am a mouse not the duck!! heehee
Great art being created...love the eye candy!!

I have been sorting things around here, so I doubt I will get anything made!! BUT you never know.. I am in a "BE QUIET" mode Hubby is in his "granpa nap" stage of the day! LOL

Hiya everyone! I've had a busy day with son and doctors, however it's good news. He'll be able to start work again next week (after hip surgery two months ago) on a more limited day. He's quite thrilled, as am I!

Hopefully I'll be able to contribute to this a-thon sometime before it ends. I work tomorrow, but am a free girl on Sunday.

All you not-feeling-well peoples, get better! Sending out healing energy to you all!

oh Jewels I want them all!!!!!!

03-16-2013, 02:27 AM
So many beautiful cards and so many "feel better soon" wishes :). I am feeling better today. It's all about the bacterial infection or what ever it was I got in Tallinn six weeks ago. The doctors don't know what it was but seems to effect still some how.

But now I have a date with my art table.

03-16-2013, 02:40 AM
Hey Sanna! So good to see you! Glad you are feeling better today!

03-16-2013, 02:46 AM

So many wonderful cards being shown (I have sent a few requests but need to put more in my Gallery). I am going to 'cheat' and offer some cards made for last year's StPATART (found on p4 of my 'Available' Gallery)

Awesome cards posted during the night, Donnacr - I love the cameo. I've been thinking about getting one tattooed for a while

03-16-2013, 08:20 AM
One more.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/296/small/1_39.jpg ATART #3 TRADED

03-16-2013, 08:35 AM
As a side note, I looked up the list of swap themes here (http://www.arttradermag.com/about/monster-list-swap-themes/) for some inspiration. Going to attempt some of the more obscure themes for the ATART. Eyeball flowers anyone?

03-16-2013, 08:58 AM
sniisk - great card, but I was too slow again! :sad:
WeAre138 - if it is not too rude - where would you be getting the tattoo?
miloccpep has made some flower cards using some very strange objects - shoes, food, etc. (unfortunately they are no longer in her Gallery)

I am just off to bed as it is midnight but here are my last few cards:
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/6_scan0027.jpg#6 (4 1/2" tall) http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/1_scan0028.jpg#7 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/5_scan0029.jpg#8 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/6_scan0030.jpg#9 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/6_scan0031.jpg#10 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/7_scan0032.jpg#11 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/4_scan0033.jpg#12 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/2_scan0034.jpg#13

03-16-2013, 09:04 AM
Good morning to all.
I suggested found poetry for to day. What do you think of that?

03-16-2013, 09:08 AM
My final 2 are chunkies:

sharlene - I hope people approve but I have already added 'Found poetry' to the first post.

Does anyone have suggestions for the final day of our Athon - Monday?

03-16-2013, 09:13 AM
Good morning to all.
I suggested found poetry for to day. What do you think of that?

I tried to find some book pages but didn't find any with a language I could understand. So, no found poetry from me this time.

03-16-2013, 09:14 AM
Two more.


03-16-2013, 09:40 AM
Mon.-how about animals-kitties, puppies, dog, etc. or those wild animals?

03-16-2013, 09:44 AM
Hi everyone!
No ATCs from me for now. IŽve been working on greeting- and birthday cards. This twisted easel card is for a friend who just turned 60. The text says "WonŽt you tell us what it was like way back when people used to live in caves?" ;)

03-16-2013, 09:46 AM
And some "regular" easel cards - not available -

03-16-2013, 11:20 AM
Those are great Evalila.

Wonderful art everyone.

Two more with found poetry.


03-16-2013, 11:22 AM
I learned this from YouTube: how to do my own altered book. It has 5 pages. Don't know what I am going to create yet, but I might just be inspired seeing it there on my table! I've done 2 projects recently. One was for Book of Dreams and the other is a very local theme titled Can Lah! Loosely translated means anything goes!

Tore out about 6 pages, every 10 page interval. I made a mistake almost immediately by gluing the front cover to the page but I left the back cover unglued. Will have to add ribbons to the inside of the front and back covers, to tie the book together after completion.

03-16-2013, 11:28 AM
I have taken to making a journal of just things in my life and family. I have used old pictures, pictures of my kids, things I like to do, etc. I am having fun with it and I have also learned so much from YouTube. I watch it all the time. I also get ideas and inspiration from Goggle Images.

03-16-2013, 11:44 AM
Off to the studio!

A Cat: recycle calendar, glitter pen, punch art on black background.

03-16-2013, 12:06 PM
I've finally got something to trade! I see you all have been really busy too! You all are on fire today!
I've been playing with needle and thread this morning. I've also painted a paper star...not done with it yet though. I finished beading a felt star with my first cup of coffee this morning.

I gave the woven magazine paper basket another coat of clear varnish while the coffee brewed. I made the woven paper basket a couple years ago. It was only a 14 inch tall tube until a few days ago when I cut the bottom for it and put it all together.
I'm hoping the drawing muse shows up sometime today. We'll see.

I've got some shamrocks to trade. I only have one crochet shamrock. It has a magnet glued to the back of it. I was going to crochet 7 of these things today but I decided to make them out of felt instead when it took me almost 45 minutes to make the first one. Felt shamrocks go much quicker. I figured beings I have to make 7 of these things, I'd cut out enough pieces to make a boatload of them. I'll put a magnet on the backside of the felt shamrocks too. The shamrocks are about 2.5 inches across.

If anyone is interested send a PM and I'll get back with you. I'll trade the felt Shamrocks for an ATC or whatever else you might have to trade.

I hope everyone is feeling better today!

Donnacr - nah, nothing rude. Probably the inside of my arm. With the silhouette of the bride of Frankenstein in the center :)

03-16-2013, 01:17 PM
Here are the cards I've done so far. I hope to do some more later.




03-16-2013, 01:46 PM
Two more - probably the last for today....

03-16-2013, 02:45 PM
I hope you come back soon, Evalila. Love those cards.

Pretty found poetry. Thanks for playing, Cynthia.

It's kind of a quiet day here. I hope those not feeling well are doing better.

It's now snowing, but not sticking. I cannot wait for warm weather. I'm not a cold weather girl. More found poety cards to come. They are drying.

03-16-2013, 02:49 PM
I'm always up for found poetry. :)

Going through stuff, I found a half done card from a past athon, and I still had all these postage stamps everywhere, so here's another (but without found poetry.)


03-16-2013, 03:09 PM
Got inspired again last night with my beeswax and napkins ~

03-16-2013, 04:01 PM
Hello all, I have been making some polymer clay tiles this afternoon for a new piece I am working on. And I made some ATCs but am too lazy to scan them. Maybe tomorrow ;-)

03-16-2013, 04:43 PM
Cynthia, you go girl. Isn't it great to use that STUFF we have just there? I love when I don't have to hunt for that element I know I have, but can't find.

Mrubyjean, amazing beeswax. You have that knack to put it altogether just right.

When hubby frees up the computer, I'll post 2 more found poetry.

03-16-2013, 04:51 PM
wonderful work Cynthia & Martha. I agree Kitty - I feel really lethargic - I have about a dozen cards here that are nearly finished so will get them done and scanned

03-16-2013, 04:56 PM
So many gorgeous cards posted overnight! I've got to get back to creating!

Just Ducky
03-16-2013, 05:10 PM
want to comment on all the good stuff and comments you gals have posted since my over sleeping this morning.. and really slow start ... but now already I forgot most I saw and read... so guess I will do the You Rock thingy...

but Sanna, I am glad to hear you feeling some better... and hope you can get over that bad thing you picked up...

anyone hear from our KESagers today ??????

I did get a couple fun drawn St. Patty done (finally) dang my brain is locked up today...

03-16-2013, 06:03 PM
Great art everyone. It is bedtime now, for me it is :>)
Ducky..LOVE your turtle. I started a card for you...a....ducky ???:>)))))))))))))))))))

03-16-2013, 07:39 PM
Lovely lovely art, girls (and boys?) !
I made a card for the iColour PAT - my group is Pink/Red and the theme for this card, hard to see, I know: bunnies. ;)

Also made one for the a-thon, a mixed-media thingie with ribbons, a button and a flapping butterfly. ;) It's available!

03-16-2013, 07:57 PM
Sniisk I'm so glad you are feeling well enough to make some art.

They let me go form the er last night. No one has a clue what is going on. I'm on so many meds I can't see straight. Told me to just come back if I need to. Feel so crummy and we are on edge. The chronic illness I have is quickly fatal if I don't get treated fast enough. Always a race against time.

I'm enjoying all the art so much! Really want to play. Maybe tomorrow I'll be less foggy. Cats are happy I'm sleeping so much. :)

03-16-2013, 08:09 PM
Kristin, good to hear from you. Many are concerned about you and our thoughts are with you. It would be great if you can create and play tomorrow. Are the cats letting you sleep?

Wonderful cards prayer_ay_night.

03-16-2013, 08:18 PM
Good to see you back Kristin - I am sure your kitties are very happy!!!! Take care.

Where would an athon be without some snark!!!!! hope you find these amusing

Love those snarky, found poetry cards. Go girl.

03-16-2013, 08:32 PM
Last two for tonight. I'm going to work on some backgrounds.

Well, there will always be future athons and sleep is probably the most healing thing for you. Glad the cats are happy. :cat:

And I think we need to make Jonquil the queen of snarkiness. :biglaugh:

03-16-2013, 09:15 PM
Afternoon all... been baking a cake and scones for my stampin up party which starts in about an hour, still have to ice and cream the cake...LOL Okok I am going...

All of those are gorgeous, Jonquil!

My parents came up to help with a project, which took longer than expected and the only thing I got accomplished was a good nap and stitched together a couple of mini-chibi dolls. I might be a lurker this time around though, but loving the eye candy as I'm pawing at the screen!

03-16-2013, 11:01 PM
For some reason I'm not the least bit tired. So, two more for the ATART.

10Y(on hold)

03-17-2013, 12:11 AM
Here are a few from me:

1. Luna Moth-collage, metallic paint, and found poetry- traded
2. Lucky Owl- watercolour pencils and glitter

I have just popped in to admire the eye candy and support my friends making wonderful art and what wonderful art is being posted.!! I have made one card all weekend and that was for the PAT I am hosting.

When the art-athons come round i have great intentions but something always interferes - today was a planned day learning indian cooking. It was great fun but just too spicy for me LOL. My husband who doesn't like spicy food at all has suggested I take the leftovers to work.........talk about support :biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh:

Anyway, well done to the hostesses of this lovely athon and congratulations to those of you who have shared your art.

I have to read a lot, and make some happy choices...after I made some cards.

03-17-2013, 05:19 AM
Morning all! I scanned my cards from last night. I actually made 2 for the All kind of birds swap, but I saw a few lovely cards I want to trade for... so all of them are for trade.

Good morning all. Fabulous cards from our talented artist. Scrolling thru is a great way to start a Sunday morning.

03-17-2013, 08:54 AM
I finished my journal page first. The magnolia's were open up early this month in Belfast. Very early for us, but oh so beautiful

03-17-2013, 08:56 AM
Meanwhile my steampunk chunky was dry, here is number one.
I may trade it if someone is interested, as I will make more for the swap

I haven't made any card today. I have been cooking and packing most of the day.

03-17-2013, 09:07 AM
Marilou, your art is wonderful. I wish I could see the blossoms. I love spring and all the flowers. I'm waiting for the forsythia to bloom and then I know spring is on it's way. We are expecting snow here and colder weather for the next week or so.

Where are you off to Sanna?

03-17-2013, 09:23 AM
Where are you off to Sanna?

I'm preparing our move to a bigger apartment in May.

03-17-2013, 03:18 PM
Love all your creations, people! <3
I made two more ATCs today - another funky whimsical bird (because they are fun and i can't get enough of them at the moment) and a travel themed card (because I got an awesome supply package a few days ago and there were these cool vintage travel papers and fitting word stickers in there! <3).
Birdie is available, world travel traded, thanks a lot!

03-17-2013, 03:31 PM
Great prayer_at_night. Your whimsical bird is so cute.

03-17-2013, 04:19 PM
Beautiful art from such a creative group!!

I missed you guys this weekend..... I am a late starter and just posted four St. Pat cards to the regular gallery since the athon is almost over. Check to see if you want to trade............

03-17-2013, 04:26 PM
I haver to agree with Nancy - amazing art in here!

I am getting a late start with cards -
but here are a couple that are on theme for the day:


Erin Gbo Braugh

Hi Mouseit! Show us your goodies! A few weeks ago I bought the swallowtail stamp from Stampin Up. I love that stamp!!!

LOL Will have to scan the catalogue, will do it after work tonight for you so you can see what I am getting!!

03-17-2013, 05:22 PM
We're playing on Monday, too, right?

03-17-2013, 05:37 PM
We certainly are playing. Anything goes, but for many of us, spring is hopefully near, we could celebrate spring in addition to the St. Paddy theme. Of course, follow your muse.

We've had a great marathon so far, so it continues on.

See you later, I need to help my hubby with dinner. He does a lot of the cooking since his retirement. He's a good cook and he sometimes choose a fine bottle of wine. Since it's pasta tonight, I think we'll have some wine.

03-17-2013, 05:42 PM
We had pasta and wine, too, today! :D Delicious combination!
To be honest, I have ignored the theme of St. Patrick's Day a bit - I just went with what my muse wanted to do. ;)

03-17-2013, 05:45 PM
That's good. That's what I'll do tomorrow. I have a few ideas I'm working on.

03-17-2013, 05:57 PM
I had an oriental WOK with a white burgundy wine, as there was chicken and gamba's
Just checking in before bedtime. Night girls, see you tomorrow!

03-17-2013, 07:20 PM
Sounds delicious Marilou. Good night.

03-17-2013, 08:56 PM
ok...sadly i havent been able to get anything done for the ATART. so many pretty cards i would have loved to trade for. i did, however, finish a moley spread for the group i am hosting. loving the way it turned out!

03-17-2013, 09:28 PM
I will be out for an appointment till late evening. So may not have any new art to show. So, Thank you to Donna and Sharlene for hosting this atart.

03-18-2013, 04:31 AM
I don't think that I can make any card today because I'm working all the day. But I'll be watching your creations :).

03-18-2013, 06:43 AM
I draw the duck when Nancy told us she had a cold, and finally colourd her


03-18-2013, 07:51 AM
mariloupatch - that duck is so cute!

sharlene - you have been doing a wonderful job as Host - THANK YOU!

I have just caught up with all the MAGNIFICENT creations that have been shown in the thread (and asked for a number of trades). The passed couple of days have been not good but I should be able to catch up with PMs, etc tomorrow.

I have managed to make a few more cards (my Muse just fled yesterday - did any of you see her?)

Another cute card Marilou.
Great card smallgirl

03-18-2013, 09:08 AM
Good Morning (or whatever) Athoners.

03-18-2013, 10:33 AM
Good evening to all! Had a long day so will not be creating any cards to end the athon. It's now 10.30pm here. Might as well prep my trades to mail them as soon as.... and since you artist 'across the pond', as Ducky coined it, still has tomorrow to go, I'll be checking in to see the art and perhaps ask for a trade or two?

03-18-2013, 11:18 AM
Hi to all. It has been a great and wonderful marathon. Thanks to all who have created art. Some to us are almost to 12:00am Mon and of course some of us more than 12 hours to go. I'm not sure if I'll get to post any today, but I will check in thru the day.

03-18-2013, 12:56 PM
Just woke up ( it's my day off) so good morning! I'll probably make a few more before the day is done.

Just Ducky
03-18-2013, 02:14 PM
what fun... did a head count yesterday and dang, we have 30 ? players jumping in... lots of fun cards up for trade and just plain fun joining in on the chatter...

Donna and Sharlene great hostess, both ya gals... just feeling dumped for not getting my muse to show up more... maybe my scattered brain is saving it's self for the next time.

I haven't given up yet, I still got 10 hours to do SOMethinG....

03-18-2013, 02:17 PM
Three last ones for me. I'll package trades up on Tuesday.




03-18-2013, 05:10 PM
Thanks Ducky for the head count. We certainly were a great bunch.

Great cards, Cynthia. I like your found poetry.

03-18-2013, 05:14 PM
Thank you all for another great athon! I will post my trades tomorrow (together with the Postage Stamp athon trades). And special thanks to our hosts!

03-18-2013, 05:51 PM
Thanks to our hosts for a fine a-thon. Thanks to all for sharing such nice cards. Was fun checking the thread and seeing what had been posted. Until next time......

03-18-2013, 06:58 PM
Yes, thanks for hosting! <3 Can't wait for the next a-thon... :jiggy: Easter, right?

I didn't do a lot today, but I finished a card I had started some time ago for the Torn Paper Book Pages swap... since I only ever half-finished anything, I'm obviously not participating, but I pulled out this start today and finished it. I'm not quite sure whether she's cute or scary. :biglaugh: Either way, she's available, if anyone's interested. ;)

03-18-2013, 07:56 PM
It has been a great deal of fun - bring on Easter is all I can say - no wait there's more!!

I have posted out all of my envies (except Donna's & Rita's as we are still finalising those)

Bought some beautiful napkins a couple of weeks ago that are different coloured easter eggs - have made a few backgrounds ready to go. Must dig out some paper piecing patterns for bunnies and chickens as well. Just about caught up with my swaps too so it has been very productive.

03-18-2013, 09:32 PM
well...i didnt get anything made for the ATART but it was a very productive weekend. moley spread, monthly envie trade, and 2 swaps finished...hopefully a third by tomorrow. sorry i missed out on all the pretties!! hit me up if you have any left overs youd like to trade.

03-18-2013, 10:20 PM
I address all my envelopes today from the last a-thon..I didn't get to play in this one, but enjoyed looking at all the great cards and wishing I would have had time, I did include a surprise in each ones envelope so you will think I did play. Looking forward for the next a-thon and hope I will be able to play.

03-18-2013, 11:27 PM
Just two more for me...I really marvel at how all of you can make so many cards in one weekend...I feel like I struggle to do just two a day...haha I guess I'm just slow :)

1. Lucky Ladybug-acrylics traded
2. Lucky Hedgehog-pencil crayonstraded

Just Ducky
03-18-2013, 11:47 PM

HI Jill, sure did miss ya this weekend and you to Amy... but ya know this ol' duck is always ready for a fun trade... knock on my door anytime....

03-19-2013, 05:56 AM
Thank you to all the people who took part in this Athon - both the participants and those 'just looking' (everyone needs an appreciative audience :yes:)
A BIG thank you to sharlene54 who offered to co-host and ended up doing most of the work - :notworthy:

Don't forget that the Easter ATART starts at 12.01am on Thursday March 28 (finishing 11.59pm Tuesday April 2). I look forward to seeing you all there and trading with even more of you.

Any suggestions for challenges for the 6 days of the Athon are very welcome.

03-19-2013, 06:03 AM
I can not join the party! Wednesday 27th I am off to Northern Ireland to have an Eastern party with the family. Enjoy the Atart everyone!

03-19-2013, 07:11 AM
smallgirl, very cute cards. I can only get 2 or3 done a day. I can't do more like so many others.

Hey duck, love those spring cards. We had about 4" of snow last night. I need spring.

Thanks to all for a great ATART. See you all at the next marathon.

03-19-2013, 07:33 AM
I couldn't sleep, so I'm working on getting these packed up....though I'm not actually going to seal the envelopes until I do get more sleep and make sure I've put the right cards in the right envelopes, addressed them correctly, etc. To let you know how tired I am, I first wrote "to make sure I've putten the right cards..." and then I thought...."I don't think that's the word I want...." :err:

03-19-2013, 07:38 AM

No more snow! Ours has melted except for the mountains. We had a couple of lovely spring days, now it's been cooler, but fingers crossed, we're in spring...which, in Utah, always means a couple of snow showers well into April, but the kind that melt right away. The last few mornings, I've woken up to birds chirping. It's much nicer than the sound of snowblowers....

03-19-2013, 07:39 AM
Oh, and I will be at the Easter-athon. (Did I mention not sleeping? Well, at least I'm entertaining...I hope....)
