    An Impromptu ATART from now to June 16!

    This is the Impromptu ATART from now to June 16th. It has already started .

    Sniisk is hosting. If you have questions, please put them in the thread. Answering PMs may take longer.

    Start times, NOW! This a-thon will end when Saturday is turning to be Sunday in the last timezone. However, don't take the given timelines too literally.

    Because we are creating different sizes and forms of art here, it may be useful to inform others if your art piece differs from an ATC and is an inchie, a chunky or something else so we know the size.

    No official optional challenges this time because no one did plan this to happen . Feel free to give challenges to other people during the ATART anyway .

    ************************************************** *********

    General a-thon info (for all ATARTs)

    What IS an ATART?
    It’s an All Types of ART marathon where you can create art, made over the same time in each time zone. This thread is going to be our crafting room.

    HOW IT WORKS
    Start creating art when it's time to start, then upload your lovely creations to your Athon gallery and post to the thread. Trading and chatting are going on all the time.
    After all the trading is done move your creations OUT of the Athon Gallery and into their correct Galleries - 'Available ATCs' or 'Mail Art'

    HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE
    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!

    WANT TO COMPLIMENT AN ARTIST
    And you will… remember you can click the You Rock button and leave it there. And we have "Like" and "Thank" buttons too.

    HOW TO POST YOUR ART TO THE THREAD
    From your atcsforall.com gallery:
    It’s easiest to have two windows open.
    1) Go to your gallery and open the image you want to insert.
    2) Copy the row with [IMG] codes. (copy is ctrl+c and paste is ctrl+v in Windows)
    3) Go to your post and paste the copies [IMG] code.
    5) and then you're done.

    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'.

    NEW TO A-THONS? If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me 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.

    I have had a pain in my knee for some months. It wasn't too bad but I noticed it once in a while. About a week ago I couldn't sleep, sit or walk normally and the pain was also in my ankle and hip. I got a diagnosis of an infection that maybe came after my pneumonia in February-March. I have a good medication now but no hope to go to work this week. And because my father took Hilla to stay with him and his dog to the countryside for the rest of this week, I have now plenty of time. The only problem is that I cannot sit but I can walk slowly (and it is recommended) and stand. I will be working part of days when I get something I can do at home.

    Ouch! Poor you! Hopefully, the antibiotics will kick in soon and you'll start to feel better. I'll send you healing thoughts. (If that helps!)

    Ouch! Poor sniisk! Hope things are improving soon.

    Guess IŽll squeeze in some play time - might be the last AThon for me for a little while.

    Oh no! I remember that you told quite a lot about it when we were in London but I didn't understand it is so bad. So sad. Are you able to craft there? Or is it mostly just talking and having meetings?

    ThereŽs usually a strict schedule of activities like individual and group therapy, sports/gymnastics, relaxation excercises, concentration excercises, crafting and group activities. For me this is really exhausting and I am not able to do much more than resting and sleeping afterwards. But I usually helps, at least for a while, together with the meds IŽm taking. ItŽs always an Up and Down.

    Thank you for the invite, Sniisk. I will see what comes out of my fingertips! Hopefully something beautiful

    I am sorry to hear that several of you are struggling with hard times ahead for awhile!!!! I wish I could erase them for all of you. Maybe it will help to remember that they will pass eventually and better days are also ahead afterwards. Hugs to you all. Stay strong. Stay focused on your purpose and your goals. And know that you are not alone!

    Oh sniisk...I wanted another ATART but not at the expense of your pain. I hope you have a quick recovery.

    Well, here's to show that I can be a complete idiot at times. Here is my first card, but it is NOT AVAILABLE FOR TRADE. Imagine my surprise when I turned it over to sign it and discovered that I had drawn this image on the back side of my first card for dithespy's swap. Now neither card is good for trading. But I wanted to show you. It is Portland Head Lighthouse in Maine.

    Oh no, I'm so sorry so many of you are having difficult medical issues. I'm just glad you're able to get the help you need. And I'll of course join in with keeping everyone company! I was just feeling an artistic lull coming on due to lack of inspiration and wondering why my work always seems a little better when done during an ATART.
