Gosh, you are all making such wonderful art.
Here's what I've been working on, and am still finishing, dang it. Got sidetracked with family and still need to get these done for next Friday's sale.

I really want to get my beeswax and napkins out... I think I'm going into withdrawal. ;)

12-07-2013, 09:25 PM
I finally uploaded all the cards that I made before and during the athon while I was at my moms... remember I had NOTHING else to do. no computer, no friends, no TV (her cable is ugh!) and it was snowy and miserable. plus I can't sleep at night and that was the night. As soon as you guys started so did I, but it was early for me.... I did a total of 71 cards for the athon at mom's and traveling back thru the airports and layovers, and I don't know how many before (those I didn't post on the athon pages, they are in my available atcs.

I went into my moms basement and found all kinds of junk. I had to go to the goodwill and buy a $2.99 suitcase (a nice clean big one) to bring home the junk. Got all her flocking for ceramics from the 1960's, I used it on a santa suit that Mcgillisj snatched up! I found old christmas paper, wrapping paper, labels stickers glitter and a bunch of wonderful stuff. Mom thinks I am out of my mind. But I was in Heaven!

I want to trade but right now I am thinking about going to sleep...Check out my stuff and ask for anything! I love trading!

12-08-2013, 02:20 AM
And the rest: (the first 4 are chunkies, the set of 4 are Twinchies) I am happy to trade Twinchie for Twinchie OR 2 Twinchies for 1 ATC.
The Chunkies are 3D tole, so the backgrounds look fuzzy - they are not really.

Lovely cards by you all! I was glad to have some art time yesterday, too, with my 5- year old and my cousin. We made some Christmas cards and I worked on my Winter Gothic Arches for the first swap I'm hosting. I hope to finish and upload them tonight or in the morning. There're still many open spots in my swap so please check it out, all of you who like winter themes and want to try the beautiful Gothic Arch format! You can make them into a book like chunkies..

Until then, have a lovely crafty Sunday!

12-08-2013, 09:02 AM

12-08-2013, 11:09 AM
Wow, youve all been busy! I guess I have to get my butt in gear. I still owe people a few cards :)

12-08-2013, 11:28 AM
Okay, for all you folks on the other side of the world.... everyone thanks to the Christmas fairy can continue doing art until the very last minute in the very last time zone.... honest!!!! She came to me in a dream and told me so! It is only 10:27am on Sunday the 8th for me right now.... and I am to quote jose or josie as she is known to everyone else mcgillisj "get my butt in gear"

Keep Arting!!!!

12-08-2013, 11:31 AM
PS. I have found a bunch of rolodexes at the thrift shops in Michigan. more than I can use. If anyone is interested postage is the biggest problem.... PM me and we can talk. I did make holiday rolos!!!! did you see them?

12-08-2013, 11:40 AM
So much awesomeness! Love all the cards - I wish I could trade with everyone! :wubclub:

Here's what I've been making until now:

Another Santa, this one is 3D! :D I haven't used these dimensional glue pads in ages, but I have several sheets of really cute Christmas 3D images, so yeah. ;) Silver outline stickers and glitter on background paper and more glitter on the image means that the photo looks not as nice as the real thing. ;)

The tree is another silver outline sticker that I put on white paper, coloured the inside with Copics and cut it out again (that was horrible with all the curves!).
Again, those silver outline stickers and the glitter make the photo not so good. ;)
For example, the "Merry Christmas" is silver, too, not black!

And the angel is one of these Vintage German die-cut images I love so much - the background was pretty vibrant turquoise before I put Distress ink on it. ;) And you can only see the silver stencilled stars in the bottom right corner in the photo, but there are more areas that have this! It's just hard to capture with the camera. :)

I'll update my gallery now, too.

The angel and Santa are traded, thanks! <3
The tree is still available. :)

12-08-2013, 12:11 PM
Well said, velcrodog! Its still morning on the 8th for some of us, so arting here we come! I have just finished a set of 6, but they are drying so Ill have to post later.

12-08-2013, 03:06 PM
wow, you all have done a tremendous job! Such beautiful art going on in here....I wish I could have every one of them! But, alas, I have been art-ing it up on the many swaps I have already joined so I can do the "want-tos" due later! So even though I've not been able to post here, I've been with you all every step of the way! I've enjoyed just looking and the drooling! :)

12-08-2013, 03:16 PM

I will seal all my envelopes tomorrow evening (after 18 hours, I guess) because I have to mail them on Tuesday morning before going to work abroad.

12-08-2013, 04:28 PM
And these are probably my last ones for the day!

And this is for Mouseit so she stops complaining that I don't make enough mouse cards! LOL

OH OH YOU KNOW I WANT IT!!!! heehee I thought we already discussed this....LOL

12-08-2013, 04:31 PM
I have two more to upload today but can't do it this morning in a rush to go to work... *sigh*

Have a nice day everyone.... and its the 9th here, so I can't create any more...LOL

12-08-2013, 05:18 PM
hey, i've got stuff!




12-08-2013, 05:57 PM
i haven't posted a one of my cards to this thread, cuz I have been too busy trying to make and post them. So far 80 ATCs and 6 rolos. I want to get to 100 before midnight...
I will post some that I just did. These are made with wood blocks from an Israeli childrens game and they made me think of the 12 days of Christmas... I just changed it around a little.

Here are just 5...

Mouseit, Ducky, and Jonquil let me know if you still want those on hold...

12-08-2013, 06:31 PM
Here is another one (although I will never make it to 100!! WOW velcrodog!!).

I still owe lilbad a card, so I will give her first priority for my little sheep.

#26 - The Shepherd

12-08-2013, 06:38 PM
You guys are rocking out the art! Wonderful marathon! We have been getting some snow today - bribed the neighbor kids to dig us out tomorrow. ;)

12-08-2013, 06:45 PM
Okay ... for those whom I promised more ... I just uploaded another dozen to my gallery.

12-08-2013, 08:33 PM

12-08-2013, 10:35 PM
Okay, I am officially DONE. No more tonight!

If anyone wants to trade let me know!!!!!! I love all your cards but always feel greedy asking for them.

I did 92 ATCs, 6 rolos, and 4 Chunkys! (I also didn't have anything to do at my moms house)

Tomorrow, if anyone has any leftovers that you want to trade and see something of mine. Just let me know. I love looking thru my book.

Playing with a favorite stamp and some techniques... and I'm frustrated. I can't get a good scan or photo of the cards I've made. :wacko:
So here are the crappy photos, which are at least better than the scans.

Green Snowman - Available

12-09-2013, 08:55 AM
Moving my cards out of the athon gallery now and to either available or rolos or other art! I had fun but it was so hard starting this out at my mom's with no computer access! But I got a lot done when I wasn't chatting with y'all. Anyone else wants to trade.... look me up!

PS. NO mariap, I am NOT making 1,000 for the next athon!!!!!!!

12-09-2013, 09:01 AM
You did well Velcrodoggie.. Heehee thats what you get for no TV or computer... LOL YOU get ART

12-09-2013, 10:31 AM
Just wanted to put these up while everyone is still checking the thread - will post a description in the gallery later, but I need to go to work now.
Made these last night (finished a little after midnight, but my day ends when I go to bed. ;) ) while watching Twilight. *lol* Yes, I do torture myself with bad movies. ;)

These are both available!

12-09-2013, 01:53 PM
Great marathon. Thanks everyone for the fun weekend.

I'm moving my cards to the available gallery. I still have a few left.

12-09-2013, 02:22 PM
What a fun weekend of eye candy! I'm so glad I got something done to trade at the end.

Thanks for hosting, Sanna!

12-09-2013, 02:40 PM
Hat's off for our hostess ... this is such fun for us.

12-09-2013, 04:06 PM
Great A-thon! Thanks so much, Sanna!!

12-09-2013, 09:07 PM
Thanks for hosting, Sanna! It was a blast :)

12-09-2013, 10:36 PM
Ok, so...I ended up sleeping most of the time at the farm (Thanks to my blessed/delicate condition). I just had no energy to get anything accomplished. So much for my good intentions...Thankfully my mom understood.

I think I'm mostly caught up on trade requests for the time being and I'll work on getting those packed up tomorrow. I still have a card and some owls left if anyone is interested...! ^^

Thanks for hosting Sanna! Was wonderful to actually play again in one of these! ^^

12-09-2013, 11:53 PM
This was a wonderful warm up to Christmas - thanks for Hosting Sanna.
Thanks also to all those wonderful people who traded with me.

I will be putting the official thread for the POST-Christmas ATART up soon so that you can start sorting out items for the various themes (if you want to use them for inspiration).

I would like to offer more of my string pictures (I didn't use even HALF of my Christmas patterns) As they are so time-consuming do people mind if I 'cheat' a little and start before the ATART starts?

Just Ducky
12-10-2013, 12:14 AM
Donna, for a chance at one of your so time-consuming thread cards... you can start today as far as I am concerned... limber up them fingers.. wish I was closer I would come and thread your needles for you...

Sanna..... a great Pre-Christmas marathon... got me in the mood, and finally got my tree up..

so much great Christmas theme cards... makes me want to go build a snowman

12-10-2013, 01:21 AM
Thanks for hosting, Sanna. Did me good to get some cards done and in the mood for Christmas!

Looking forward to the POST-Christmas ATART, Donna! LOL! you are an honest cheat?!

12-10-2013, 07:23 AM
All my trades are packed up and will be in the mail today. Fun a thon.

12-10-2013, 10:12 AM
I am now starting to get my trades packed up .... sorry girls... needed to regroup yesterday. and get ready for my monthly ATC group swap. I took my binder of ATC there and showed the girls... we will be getting a lot more folks on here to participate I think.

They loved the art and the fact that you don't have to make twenty of the exact same card....

Off to pack envelopes...

This was a wonderful swap and a wonderful hostess... thank you so much!

12-10-2013, 10:24 AM
You just keep "talking us up" Cathy. I don't know what I would do with the rest of my life if it wasn't for these little cards. LOL

Miss M
12-10-2013, 11:21 AM
Unless you've gotten a PM from me indicating otherwise, post-athon bundles got mailed this morning! So the US folks just may get'em for Christmas!:D

12-10-2013, 03:38 PM
Mailing my trades tomorrow. :)

12-10-2013, 10:22 PM
I'm waiting for just a couple of addresses. All other cards going out tomorrow. Thanks everyone!!

Just Ducky
12-10-2013, 11:31 PM
got Ducks to lick envelopes and so they all bagged and tagged and ready to go...
oh except for that mousie person... can you believe ??? she wants a Hedge HOg card.. NON-mouse... tee-hee

fun fun fun... I pooped.. but happy ducky

12-11-2013, 07:48 AM
Blinkin cards that look like mousies! ppfftthhh LOL Ducks I would take a ducky made card any day!

12-11-2013, 08:48 AM
My cards are ready. Now I have to decide to go out in the freezing weather. I'm not a cold weather gal.

12-11-2013, 06:16 PM
Well, my trades will be mailed tomorrow. I headed to the post office this morning with packages, and left them on the table. Sheesh!

12-11-2013, 06:24 PM
Well, my trades will be mailed tomorrow. I headed to the post office this morning with packages, and left them on the table. Sheesh!

So annoying!:wacko:
I remembered to grab mine, though, so they made it into the mail just as the PO closed today.

12-12-2013, 12:27 AM
Mine are mailed.

12-12-2013, 11:03 AM
How can all you do that so fast!!!! I am mailing a few a day. I only have 18 folks ATCs mailed out so far.... lets not talk about how many to go! But I have been busy. Teaching classes in crafts twice this week and other garbage you will find out about! deep sigh.... I posted some cards that I had made at mom's prior to the athon and packed "safely" in my luggage. duh! And two that I had to make last night while discussing infidelity in marriage with my husband...... check them out!

lol! Have a lovely day... I am mailing out cards... getting my hair colored or coloured... teaching a class... and spending hubbys money!

12-12-2013, 01:51 PM
It sounds like you have a lot on your plate. I get flustered when I have too much to do. You have a lot of trades, plus other things, somehow you will get it all done. I certainly can wait as most others can. The marathon is for fun not for stress.

Spending hubby's money would de-stress me. Spending my money would de-stress me.

12-12-2013, 02:51 PM
All my cards have gone out. Merry Christmas, you all!

12-13-2013, 02:17 AM
my time since the athon ended has been ridiculously hectic with school prize giving etc - my job this evening is getting mine into envelopes so they can go to the post office tomorrow

12-14-2013, 04:34 PM
Mine have FINALLY gone postal this afternoon. Sorry for the delay everyone!

Merry Christmas!!!

12-15-2013, 02:28 PM
Started to receive returns yesterday. Thanks!

12-15-2013, 04:38 PM
Wow! Too bad that I missed this one! You all made such fabulous cards!!

12-16-2013, 06:16 AM
I mailed all my envelopes on Tuesday. Except of course the trades which were decided after that. I will mail my last envelopes when I'm back home before this Christmas.

12-16-2013, 12:07 PM
I mailed my letters today! Hope they will reach their goals safely... I'm afraid of the Christmas mail monster. :err:

12-17-2013, 10:28 AM
half of mine went yesterday and the other half will go today. Received many yesterday as well. This was such fun!

12-18-2013, 12:57 AM
Received so many lovely returns today! I had a HAPPY mailbox!!

12-20-2013, 05:44 AM
Have 3 returns today!! whoohooo do you girls know how to make gorgeous cards or what!!!

off to leave itraders!!!

12-20-2013, 10:02 AM
It was a huge surprise how many of the envelopes actually arrived before the Christmas. I have received over half of my trades and have been giving iTraders this day.

I started my vacation today and will have free days till 4th of January when I'm travelling back to Estonia.
