I cannot take the lead on hosting this holiday weekend but I could help for part of the weekend. I'll mention it in the other thread and see if there is interest.

I will play. I can really host as I am waiting for our daughter to have her baby and it could be this week-end.

No Labor Day for us here in Germany;) But nevertheless - I would definetely host an A-Thon if no one else wants to...

You can play away I.R.Stamper - I have lots of digital halloween collage sheets that I use - and some of the templates I have for cats, mice, ducks etc can be redone in halloween themed paper - what the heck - even if it isn't halloween themed you can play anyway!!!

From what it appears, I may be able to play in a Halloween ATART. Because of a few friend's schedules, my Halloween Writer's summit is the weekend before rather than around, so I'm hoping I can play! :)

I was planning to have my craft room opening day during that weekend so it will be halloween themed :).

dsign49
10-13-2013, 10:38 PM
Will sure try and play.

I.R.Stamper, I was actually thinking the same.

KESagers
10-14-2013, 12:59 PM
Good question - I thought in the past "anything goes" it just happens to be over Halloween so there is a lot of Halloween themed art?

sniisk
10-14-2013, 01:02 PM
Earlier it has been an anything goes marathon but it's always depending on the host. Good to check the rules before starting :).

Nancy

Hopefully it will be both so we will have more players...but, I personally want to trade for Halloween goodies!

if we do not make Halloween cards.....be aware of the ghosts, they come and get you.
Halloween it is!

Curiosity here, but for a Halloween ATART does it mean that we're simply having the ATART over the Halloween weekend, OR that everything must be Halloween themed?

Ack! I still have some Halloween stamps sitting here I need to send you!! :confused:

Theresagram
10-15-2013, 08:07 PM
I'll be making Halloween stuff!!! I needs me some Halloween art! :confused: Last night I was digging thru all my atcs to display some Halloween ones and realized I'm woefully lacking in Halloween atcs. :(

I'll be in away in Sydney for a conference for most of these dates but may get a chance to play on the Sunday! Mmmmmmm, I am thinking I could probably take some items with me to craft while away.......as I'd love to play as I haven't done an ATART in ages. :)

Halloween stamps are great to use partially in ATC's and Chunky's and then colour them. This was one of my ideas. I do have some stamps but it is expensive as I have to buy them in the UK (close country, cheap in delivery :>) Found some wooden halloween shapes that I have to die. Start with that today!

Jewels
10-16-2013, 11:29 PM
Can't wait. I'll have to dig out my own Halloween stuff.

I am happy for anything and everything!!! There will be some Halloween themed challenges and certainly I am sure lots of peeps will relish the chance to play with their Halloween goodies (I know I will!!!!) but feel free to make non Halloween themed art as well

I hope atcs are ok as I just finished six!

jonquil

jjhere - an ATART is where we simply create all types of art from ATCs to inchies, post cards, ornaments, whatever takes you fancy. You post pictures in the A-thon gallery and in the thread and you trade your lovlies for others that take your fancy. This one is being held over Halloween so there will be a certain flavour to the Athon - but you don't have to stick to that theme for the whole time. I will post the Official thread soon and then the fun can begin.

jonquil
10-21-2013, 02:50 AM
to get you all inspired!!!! I made this 4x6 post card and I will randomly pick one artiste from all those who participate in the Halloween A-thon to be the lucky recipient - getting into the swing of things!!!!

Okay, so it doesn't have to be Halloween only? And it is any art form? I may have to look more into this....

jonquil

some newb questions....
I just figured out what these mysterious athons are :idea:, so once the official thread is posted, anyone can join in? Do I need to sign up? So basically for 5 days we're just making art and posting/trading (as per rules of course) over thread?

Should I lock myself into my art room and hold all my calls?? :laugh:

lilbad

I am just getting the challenges sorted out and will post the OFFICIAL thread most likely tomorrow my time (Sunday) which will then give you the chance to get your creative hats on and final organising done - plus stocking up on the yummy treats. I am preparing some apple cider, hot chocolate and baileys to place on the drinks table - plus a few savoury snacks to nibble on as well as a bowl of lollies (candy to the rest of you!!!!) feel free to add some treats as the athon progresses.

Will post a link to the official thread here as well
