who thought up the idea of "inchies"... it has been a nitemare for this ol' gal... but yes, I did finally made a inch or two... but I did do better with twice the inch size... so here are my offerings so far... and these are traded as a set...

a twinchie and a inch ..... I calling them.... "twin-inch"

sheep..... chicken....... hedgie....... bunny.....

Oh my gosh, Ducky--that is too funny. Because, I too, just made a inchie and inchamundo that are a set! They actually are one stamp that was too long, and it worked out just right to split between two.

How did we both do the same thing at the same time?? LOL

Mine actually is downstairs while I finish cutting some tiny things for inchies. I will post my set later in the evening.

Didn't get to play yesterday due to family obligations. But now the work week is over and I should be able to grab bits of art time. Yay!! Gotta go back and catch up on the lovely things everyone posted. So much creativity!

I made a few moo houses today, and still have these twinchies and twinchie house available. (And a handful of ATCs in my regular gallery if anyone is interested. :))

I had this Athon all planned out and it was going to be GREAT! Then Life happened. . .

I have been volunteering at one of the local schools as a 'Native English speaker' but they discovered that I have a teaching background and asked me to actually TAKE a class of Grade 4 students.
I haven't been in a classroom, as a teacher, for over 10 years and to try to plan an hour long lesson that would be fun and understandable in a language that is NOT their own - let me just say, that I stressed about it!!!!!!! (translates to PANIC!) I taught the lesson using 4 simple Zentangles so that they had to understand simple directions but they could SEE what my words meant as well. The children enjoyed it so much that they continued halfway through their lunch break :jiggy::jiggy:

AND NOW. . .my husband has just come home and told me that we are going to a wedding tomorrow. Weddings here are a whole day affair so there goes ANOTHER days crafting. :shocked::swoon:

I have spent most of today catching up with the thread ( and asking for trades). Such beautiful work by so many people - lovely to see some new/old faces here and welcome to the very new faces who have been taking part.

I will be adding to my Gallery shortly (and reworking some of the pieces already in there - not happy with them). See you soon

Donnacr....

Teach them the "hokey pokey" song/dance~ seriously.... they will stand up move learn left right arm foot body head etc!!! and the words, singing, movement etc are all teaching different parts of the brain so it will stick a lot better than anything else. If y'all don't do the hokey pokey over there google it..... great for kids!

I promised myself I WOULD NOT get on here this morning and look .... and I did ... and I sent pm's cuz I's just got's to have's some ART!!!!

Off to the "garage sale" of crafts and to teach my egg class!!!!!!! See y'all tonight!


PS. sorry for my short, cryptic, pm's -- but there was soooo much great art!!!!! I will leave You Rocks later this evening!!!!

FABULOUS Work!

Gonna Promise to lurk (for now....) as I'm working on swap stuff that has to be out either in today or Monday's mail, but I may find some time to do some inchies. So, here's your cheerleader rooting you on from the sidelines!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!

I have spent a fair amount of time tonight cutting tiny images and creating some inchie sets....yep, I know...I said "No more inchies."

Well...I lied! LOL

04-05-2014, 07:54 AM
I am not set on trading amount for amount. If you see a set of 3 inchies, don't be afraid to ask for a trade if you only have one or two to trade. I don't mind at all! I just enjoy making and trading. And inchie and a scrap of a fun interesting piece of paper would be a great offer....or whatever. I am open to any and all variations of trades!

Just before I logged in and read about making inchies and twinchies being made and traded as a pair, I had just finished making an inchie ON a twinchie! lol Was struggling to think of a name for it. Twinchie and Twin Inchie? Will upload later. Trudy

It is after 5 AM, and I have been working on these ALL night! LOL

Gotta go to bed before the kids get up and I don't get to sleep at all!

I know I owe some "my side" of trades. I will make that a priority tomorrow (later today.)

I am in the middle of making a series of Moo houses with WW II pin up girls in residence but I thought that I had better put my Host hat on - for the benefit of first timers and to remind everyone else.:policeman::wubclub::policeman:

When you make a trade please take that item OUT of the Athon Gallery and put it in the appropriate Traded Gallery (most of these items belong in 'Mail Art')

After the Athon is finished - move any remaining items out of the Athon Gallery and into the appropriate Available Gallery.

Good Golly you all are fantastic! So much great art in this thread! And lots of laughter as well! That's always a good thing!

I said in my last post I would be back in a bit to post some more inchies. That was over 24 hours ago. Life had to be dealt with yesterday...had errands to run in town, the laundry needed attended to ....just life happening! That and I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer! I was awake for about 26 hours straight. I had myself a 12 hour nap and then did my running around town. I did get some more inchies drawn and some of them colored in. And then I had me another 12 hour nap and now I'm up and raring to go!
At the moment there are 8 sets of inchies waiting to be scanned, a boatload of them ready to be put into sets and scanned and another boatload of them waiting for some color! So, I WILL be back in a bit with something to share! I promise it won't be very long.

Trudy
04-05-2014, 11:21 AM
I'm back again. Just uploaded latest stuff on athon gallery. Not sure if some look properly finished. I normally like to varnish, or something similar, but it makes them so difficult to photo, and I think the twinchies may need a border:err::err: Let me know what you think. Trudy

dmnh
04-05-2014, 11:56 AM
I'm still coloring inchies that I drew yesterday, but here are some that are ready to go! Please take them!!!!

As soon as I get the rest of these inchies on my desk colored, I'll be back with a boatload to trade!

critters inchies traded
landscape inchies traded
flowers inchies traded
cats set 1 inchies
cats set 2 inchies

Getting senile in my old age....I already offered that set of flower inchies and the set of landscapesand they are already traded! As have the critters too! I apparently have not got my '*&#@ together yet today!

dmnh
04-05-2014, 12:00 PM

Okay folks... I can't go thru and trade for all the wonderful art I want to trade for. I am teaching a pysanky class tomorrow and I am not ready for it as I am a procrastinator. So I am going to bed now, Zane just brought me the computer, so i can say good night to all of you ... Tamratula... I want a snarky the one with something about making bad decisions, cuz there are so many choices... can pm anyone as I must sleep. I have to be up at 5am as Scraps of Art (where I am teaching the pysanky class at 1pm is having a "garage sale" I score big there and sell off some of my extras so it is a win win situation.... I did good at the last one.... So I will say goodnight and go to sleep and rush like heck to get it together in the morning!!

PS. YOU should see the ATCs I made tonight!!!!! I will show them tomorrow ...but they are for the graphic 45 swap!!!!! I used the birdsong (oriental) line and they came out lovely! I should have been getting ready for this darn garagesale thing and pysanky and I am making ATCs ... I love this site....



I was wondering was Pysanky could be....and googled it....and all I can say is WOW! And, you teach that? Amazing!

I like the way you think! :yes:

Kimmie
04-05-2014, 06:54 PM
Before I label/photo my inchies, how are you all trading? Singles? Sets of 3 or 6? I'm trying to figure out how to list mine. Seems to me it would be easier to trade in sets, but if listed as a "pick and choose", you could send/receive a broader range of art??

What do you all think? How would you like to trade them?? :) Thanks in advance!

Trudy
04-05-2014, 06:58 PM
OK that's made up my mind. I was dithering about what to make tomorrow, but looking at the recent uploads has convinced me to bite the bullet and make some inchie houses ..... unless they end up as twinchie houses that is .... or moos ..... or .....

dmnh
04-05-2014, 07:03 PM
Decals, I find it easier to put them in sets of six. That's just me though. I know trading them on a pick and choose system would pitch me over the edge! I'd loose track of who wanted what. But that's just me. Guess it's up to you how you feel they will work together. Some folks are trading one for one, three for three and six for six. I know that was no help whatsoever but that's my two cents! :)

I'll be back shortly with a couple more sets of inchies. I had company and had to set arting aside for a little while. When mama comes to visit, you DO NOT ignore her no matter how deep you're into the art groove! :)

I see you all still have your art on! I really need to shoot off some PMs and ask for more of this greatness!

I'm done with inchies for today after I color the last four and then I'm going to make some twinchies with chickens on them.

04-05-2014, 07:33 PM
Decals_gal I do what ever feels right for me at the time. Usually singles or sets of three. But I also did a set of two earlier and have done 4 or 6 in sets of the past.

But personally on the other side of the trade. I like a set of six to all be related but kind of Unique, Totally random sets, and six almost identical inchies although Lovely just do not attract me.

so funny Tam... I tried Zetti when I first joined ... was even so proud I posted it... was even asked for a trade.... haven't seen that trader since...:cry: poor girl... I decided it was cruel and unusual punishment .... moved on ,which I know made everyone happy...

Ducky and Tam, you all are braver than I am! I haven't even tried zetti. I do not make good collages~! I admire those who can do collage well.

Tam I got a couple of spider twinchies drying for you. Will post in a bit.
I've only made 4 twinchies since the last time I was here. Painting takes longer than marker work. I'm done with inchies. I have four more to color but that will be the end of them.

I think that is a good go at zetti style, Tam! I've dabbled, but I'm far from fabulous at it.

Decided to play with a bit larger size ... here's a 4x6 postcard made using a section of a gelli print and rubber stamps. I tried a photo and a scan, but without natural light the colors don't come out true. They are "electric" colors.

Thanks for the input on the inchie question.... I've decided I'll be listing them in sets of 3! I did themes in sets of 6 per theme, but they are ALL different in each theme.
Since I can get the best photos in the daylight, I'll wait until in the morning to share here.
(don't know what is wrong with me - I dread taking the darn pictures!) Have a good night everyone!

....and I hope to goodness there is some of all this wonderful art left for me to trade for!! :yes:

I stopped for some leftovers while these four measly twinchies were drying. My belly is full and I'm content. I'm going to see how many more twinchies I can get done before the sleep monster gets here.

I'm just going to mark those spiders traded as I'm sure Tam wants them. Pay no attention to those spots all over these. Someone is going to go clean the scanner glass!

Before I label/photo my inchies, how are you all trading? Singles? Sets of 3 or 6? I'm trying to figure out how to list mine. Seems to me it would be easier to trade in sets, but if listed as a "pick and choose", you could send/receive a broader range of art??

What do you all think? How would you like to trade them?? :) Thanks in advance!

I tend to put my inchies in sets of two but I'll start doing sets of 3 since many are doing sets of 6. I find it hard to do six and not have them look pretty much alike, like my daisies, which is why I put 'em in pairs (a group and a solo daisy).

I do most of my inchie trading the same way I do ATCs - 1 for 1, but I'm open to new ways! I'm pretty flexible.

And did I make any art? Since I posted, a friend called with a major problem, there went an hour, and three of my sisters went to begin clearing Mama's house. OY! So there went three plus hours, as they needed to talk it out. *sigh* Then dss is in loooooooooooooover (after 1 month of acquaintance) and missing his sweetie who lives three hours away, oyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

*shaking fist at skies* As God is my witness, I'll never go art-less again!!!!
sigh.

Jewels I want 90% of your kitty cards, but I try not to ask for too many cause I don't want to force my stuff on you continuously.

Tam I think she is pretty cool! It is the background that may need a little something. How about turning that red border into a zetti type stripe border with red and black stripes. I think a good marker or sharpie should do it right on top of the other.:)

Nancy I am sorry that inchies give you so much trouble. Usually I enjoy them. Tonight though I found I struggled some to. Before the Portland AFA I made over 50 bottlecap charms each with my username and a mermaid, I thought I could whip up a bunch of mermaid inchies easy peasy. LOL

I think the heavier stuff my inchies are cut from causes the ink to spread out. I gave up and started doing silhouettes the black liner pen doesn't bleed.

My 2 cents in the number of inchies for trade....um....well....

WHATEVER WORKS! LOL

I rarely can come up with 6 that go together enough that I would call them a set...so, my sets are usually mandated by how many of similar type images I can find!
But, I also am open to splitting sets depending on which inchies the asker wants!

Tamrantula

Ok....whew!!!!.... just put all my offered inchies in the ATHON gallery, if anyone wants to take a peek. Pics are ok, but just do NOT pop the colors as they actually are!

I don't think I'll post them to the thread as it would probably take me half the morning...unless that's the way you prefer me list them??? :)

IF ANYONE WANTS TO TRADE WITH ME, let me know what set you would like to trade for - I listed them in sets of 3 each, 2 sets per pic. One set is on a black background and one white - same pic. They are listed as "SET A" "SET B", etc. Just let me know which set letters you'd like! Thanks, everyone! :)

V-:dog: , I miss your chatter! Hope your class went well yesterday and you are surviving your "weekend" ok? For your inspiration to me, I made you an ATC I hope you'll enjoy - and it's a RAK, so NO TRADIN', OK?? :wubclub:

Here questions were....

Also, I am confused what the A-Thon is? Do you post pictures in advance, because there are ones currently under the forum topic. How do you know they are traded if they all say A-Thon? Do you delete them after trading? Can you still trade ones that are available after the a-Thon? Can you only make them during the designated days? Obviously, I'm confused, lol

AND A LITTLE FLORIDA joke fer our Little Vdoggie....

While sports fishing off the Florida coast, a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but..
his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. Spotting an old beach-comber
standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, "Are there any gators around here?", "NAW",
the man hollered back, "they aint' been around for years!"

Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward shore. About halfway there
he asked the guy, "How'd you get rid of the gators?"
"We didn't do nothin', the beachcomber said, "The sharks got 'em"

ATCs are easy, they fit in hockey card binders, but inchies have stumped me. BTW, there are a couple of black splotches in the picture (eg. on the blue and yellow JOY inchie), but they are from my scanner and NOT on the card itself.

Most of my inchies are afixed to an ATC blank ....some permanently, some not...and kept in the same notebooks as I keep my ATCs in. Six of them will fit perfectly on an ATC blank.

I have a few of them in little plastic tag holders that were originally made to cover up Ty Beanie Baby tags. Those are on my fridge with a magnet adhered to the back of the tag cover. The tag covers are a bit bigger than an inch but it works out alright. Makes it easier to change out the inchies if I feel like it.

V-:dog: , been there/done that with the hives issues....had them so badly once, I had to rush emergency to a doctor...they were full body, even on my scalp and INSIDE my mouth. The nurse pulled up my shirt and said "OH MY GOD.."; needless to say, I was pumped full of hydro shots and given prednisone. Never figured out what caused it....only happened for a while and only if I ran any temp/fever. ??

Please keep check on yourself (I know you are a nurse, lol) ....extreme hives can be dangerous/scary! We love ya, girl!

In the lower right hand corner of the post there are 5 buttons....one is the "You rock"

The third one says "Quote" and the 4th says "Quote +"

If you click Quote, it adds that post to your response.

LOL Ducky! My sister has a birthday on the 16th. She's gonna need a pretty big cake too if we're to put candles on it! Happy early Birthday!

My drawing muse abandoned me. All I have to show for the evening is a successful meatloaf out of the oven and the little book I'm fixing to show you all. That successful meatloaf is a gigantic achievement! It's a long story, but I have NEVER made a successful meatloaf without help from someone else. That meatloaf I made much earlier today turned out perfect! I was quite surprised! I have no idea what made me think, after not having attempted to make meatloaf in 23 years that I could actually accomplish it today...but there you go! I'm sure it's just a fluke! My sons will not believe me when I tell them. And I'm sure I still won't be able to convince them to eat meatloaf I have made.

I found a little box with twinchies in it I made a few years ago when I was hunting for other things. I decided to bind them all into a little book to sit on the table in the livingroom. I didn't make the binding strings long enough to put them all in it but I came close! There are 42 twinchies plus a front cover in the book. I glued two inchies back to back so each page would have a picture on it.

I could have offered them up for trade, I suppose, but trust me when I tell you that none of them were exceptional. If you want to know how I bound the twinchies together, this is the tutorial for binding I used. scroll to the end of the post to see the diagram for binding:

OK, here are some polyclay inchies I just made. The Pearl Ex pigments are "baked" right into them. The colors are all very rich and pearly/metallic.

I'm putting these up seperately, not in sets so they're mix and match.

They number #35 to #52

#40, 42AVAILABLE

Cut, Cut, Cu...oh, shoot....typo!

Type out phrase. Send to printer...

Walk upstairs (sigh)....retrieve paper.

Walk downstairs (better, but still sigh!)

Cut out words...lay them on card....add edging to words...

Glue down words....get a tickle on hands...rub hands together vigorously forgetting about the little bits of paper with the words on them!

Discover the LAST word missing. UGH...

Wait!...I have copies from when I printed originally....all different sizes--and it doesn't matter if there was a typo--I don't need THAT word!

Dig through copies...discover that I used a different font, so none of the sizes match! Sigh, again!

Retype phrase AGAIN--cause, yes, I closed Microsoft word without saving....

Send to printer...

Go BACK upstairs (much bigger SIGH)

Retrieve copy from printer AGAIN...

Go BACK downstairs (Deep Sigh!)

Cut and edge and glue that darn last word, with more enthusiasm than needed!

My favourite character was offed in the first season, so I've got nothing super invested in it, other than wanting to shoot Joffrey through the screen every time I see him. And wanting to see the show progress, of course. I've already spent a few months' worth of book fund last month although I'm determined that I will read the books.

I just did something I never thought i would ever do! LOL

I spent all night (it is after 5 AM right now) searching for images, printing, and prepping images for cards.

I cut out images for a dozen and a half or two dozen card....and realized, as I was close to finishing...
I dulled my scissors! I have never done that before! I was using a tiny pair of scissors, perfect for cutting tiny images...and actually dulled the scissors!

Guess that is a sign I need to quit cutting!

Boatbird that is so cool. I resized a self portrait in pencil my son did in Jr High and added it to my ATC collection with my Self Portraits. And I have boxes of his art and school stuff including several clay and ceramic things he did. The ceramics Snowman and woman that he painted when he was 4 and he did another of the same set when he was 6 or 7. His Granny and I both did a lot of that back then.

Linda4atc
04-07-2014, 08:27 AM
LOL Tam if they are good scissors you can get them sharpened. I think that has happened to me before but not where I noticed the difference in one cutting session.

It is not fair that you will be making so much more a-thon art. You already have so many cards I would enjoy having but I am afraid to keep asking everyone for things and then have to make a ton of stuff for IOU's. LOL

I really have to get two 8x8's done for my PAT and soon!

And I think 4am is my latest a-thon night so far, but like right now, I find myself getting up in the middle of the night or to early for me. Just to check in and see what I missed. But my sweetie is still in bed and I keep yawning so I think I'll go join him. See you all later.

Good morning Ladies! (and I use that word loosely)

I am NOT hive free yet.... so feel free to make fun (and art) of the poor Velcro"dawy" with hives. Last night, my fingers must have swollen as I woke up and took them off in my sleep and couldn't get my mom's wedding ring off (she gave it to me after Dad died as she wanted to be POSITIVE that I got it and not my sister!) so I had to lick my finger to pull it off.... I remember that, and this morning I found MY wedding ring on the floor and NO sign of my mom's ring.... I am sleeping in my "workplace" and there are all kinds of bins and baskets that i might have dropped into ....panic!!!! I hope i find it!

Made few thread art last night.... doing the pysanky thang all evening. I just divided about 2 dozen eggs, instead of doing one egg at a time as I haven't cleared my table for the pysanky dyes.


IF you haven't traded with me and would like to please pm me with a request. I like to trade with everyone... Sometimes, I am just not organized.... and this is one of those times....

Got to run to the Doctors office now... be back later....

Oh my days... i NEED the perfume one please?! I guess that means a 3fer trade lol :biglaugh: seriously loling at that one, so true of some of the pub customers (especially now I work bar and kitchen!)

Whew! I missed a lot of great inchies this weekend, being away. :( I did get a few more scanned in a few minutes ago, they're in my gallery, if anyone wants to peek and trade! Great athon everyone!!!! :D

Sure, there's probably a place on the forum to share, I'll look into it after the Athon.

But here's the skinny:

I use a dark clay (black or dark blends) as the Pearl Ex looks best against a dark background. Use a soft brush to lightly brush just a bit of the pigment on the unbaked clay and play with blending a few colors on each piece. I made mine 1/8" and baked for 20 minutes at 275 degrees.

I stamped some and made molds from other stamps in polyclay so I could get the raised images (like the small roses I applied to #35-38, #51 and 52)




OK, Miss lindalee.... you KNOW what this means?...it means that sometime down the line you MUST, ABSOLUTELY, GOTTA share the steps for making inchies out of clay as you did!!

Seriously, those are the prettiest inchies ever.... and the colors! Wow! :jiggy:

That is SO awesome! I still have 2 cards I made for my parents when I was 6...so sweet! Can't wait to see the art!




oh! I gave my toddler some punched out inchies- and he drew two inchies for me! totally precious, I shall share a photo with you later :wubclub: hes only 3 so drawing in such a small space was a challenge for him and obviously I'm not entirely sure what he drew- but he did it! I am going to mount them on black card and put them in a frame with his ATC from last year!

ERMAGERD!! I thought the athon was OVER last night!! Linda4atc just straightened me out!!!! Now I need to go back through all the posts to see what I missed while away!!! I'm having a spaz attack atm. hahaha And, I need to clear my schedule to make more inchies!!!!

v:dog: I hope you find that ring soon. I know that panic feeling when I've lost something really important or special.

For other stuff, and more often I just drive myself crazy because I misplace something and spend hours or days trying to find it. Or in the case of the pink slips for all the vehicles my husband wants to sell, 3 cars and 3 motorcycles I never find them. I know exactly where the pink slips are for the vehicles we are keeping. :err: Only thing I can figure is we pulled them out either to do insurance (which is separate from the other everyday cars/trucks) or because he wants to sell them and they never got put back.

OK, here are some polyclay inchies I just made. The Pearl Ex pigments are "baked" right into them. The colors are all very rich and pearly/metallic.

I'm putting these up seperately, not in sets so they're mix and match.

They number #35 to #52

#40, 42AVAILABLE

#35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 41, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51 TRADED

WOW, so beautiful!!! I'm going to have to get the instructions so I can make some. I have pearl ex, but never tried polyclay. Thanks found the post, it takes some time to catch up, we are a chatty bunch!

My youngest son found my moms ring... he went threw a bunch of baskets, trays and boxes as I had put the rings on my laptop (closed) and when I opened it the catapulted across the room...So I am happy now.

Still itchy as heck.

Good morning Ladies! (and I use that word loosely)

I am NOT hive free yet.... so feel free to make fun (and art) of the poor Velcro"dawy" with hives. Last night, my fingers must have swollen as I woke up and took them off in my sleep and couldn't get my mom's wedding ring off (she gave it to me after Dad died as she wanted to be POSITIVE that I got it and not my sister!) so I had to lick my finger to pull it off.... I remember that, and this morning I found MY wedding ring on the floor and NO sign of my mom's ring.... I am sleeping in my "workplace" and there are all kinds of bins and baskets that i might have dropped into ....panic!!!! I hope i find it!

Made few thread art last night.... doing the pysanky thang all evening. I just divided about 2 dozen eggs, instead of doing one egg at a time as I haven't cleared my table for the pysanky dyes.


IF you haven't traded with me and would like to please pm me with a request. I like to trade with everyone... Sometimes, I am just not organized.... and this is one of those times....

Got to run to the Doctors office now... be back later....

Aw, Dawgy dear...you got the itchies? Sending you cool relief and lots of hugs!

Here is what the last 15 min at my house looked like:

*cutting and gluing the words on the last card before I scan these*

Cut, Cut, Cu...oh, shoot....typo!

Type out phrase. Send to printer...

Walk upstairs (sigh)....retrieve paper.

Walk downstairs (better, but still sigh!)

Cut out words...lay them on card....add edging to words...

Glue down words....get a tickle on hands...rub hands together vigorously forgetting about the little bits of paper with the words on them!

Discover the LAST word missing. UGH...

Wait!...I have copies from when I printed originally....all different sizes--and it doesn't matter if there was a typo--I don't need THAT word!

Dig through copies...discover that I used a different font, so none of the sizes match! Sigh, again!

Retype phrase AGAIN--cause, yes, I closed Microsoft word without saving....

Send to printer...

Go BACK upstairs (much bigger SIGH)

Retrieve copy from printer AGAIN...

Go BACK downstairs (Deep Sigh!)

Cut and edge and glue that darn last word, with more enthusiasm than needed!

LOL,

You made my day with that story - I do the same thing (except that my craft room is upstairs and the printer is downstairs). So glad that last word had so much enthusiasm!!:biglaugh::biglaugh:

Well, my plans for the big art evening have gone up in smoke. Had a setback for one of the kids today (thought he was registered for college classes, somehow he is not on the roster...blah, blah, blah). Having a big DISCUSSION (dh, myself, and ds)...trying to get plans in place to go forward from here. DS feels really badly, and hubby none to happy. Anyway, will be at this a while, I think....solving some issues.

I literally have over a dozen things on my art desk in various stages of completeness...calling my name! Hoping to get something more done after life gets sorted out.

I know I owe a few PM's....I will answer them...prob in the AM, tonight gotta rest the brain! LOL

So...if the athon was originally supposed to end Monday at midnight, and we are adding a day....that would mean Tuesday at midnight...right?

So...I am assuming that is midnight wherever you are, like most athons.

And....lucky for once...I am on the West Coast....almost the end of the line when it comes to time zones...so, I will be posting to the LAST possible moment...Tuesday at 11:59....that means, you all need to come back on WEDNESDAY to check out my wares and see if there are any you can't live without!

Don't leave me hanging! LOL

Nope, we decided that these athons should start for everyone when the first person's (Donnacr) day starts and ends when the last person (In Hawaii) day ends. So we all won't let you be lonely....

Now, I have a SERIOUS statement to make....


I DO NOT EVER WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN AN
"ITCHY"
ATHON AGAIN!

04-08-2014, 10:21 AM
You are perfectly correct v:dog: - we finish at 11.59pm Tuesday Hawaii time.
That means that we all have another 19.5 hours to play (unless we extend another day. . .:D)

Thank you to those people who have traded with me without me posting in the thread but I find that I can create OR chat and load in the thread.

It is raining here too. Nasty, wet and miserable. I just want to stay in bed and cover my head. But it was time to take the wax off my classes eggs and varnish them...and believe it or not! I did it......

I thought I would post the before and after pictures to show you what they look like. Remember there is a learning curve with pysanky and the first ones you do are always "different" - but after you make them once and see the completed piece then you "get" it.

this is the egg, covered in black nasty beeswax, it sits for 3 days to let the dye set.142347


then you put them in the oven at about 200 degrees F and watch them until the wax is shiny and starting to melt142348

You wipe off the wax142349

and put a coat of polyurethane on them (oil based varnish)142350
