    Challenge Hunt ATART on December 5-8

    Here we go again! This will be the official thread for the Challenge Hunt (ATART) on Dcember 5-8 .

    A list of special supplies you will need if you want to complete all the tasks:
    pile of scrap papers
    a map (or a part of it)
    pens/markers
    paints
    playing cards
    a small box (a match box or something similar)
    small amount of thread, string or fabric
    a tea bag (or its cover)
    a Christmas/winter postage stamp
    one stamped image
    glitter
    a stapler & staples


    I don't list any obvious items as normal papers, pens, scissors etc. You can use mostly whatever you have but some tasks are more limited.

    Sniisk is hosting and counting points. If you have questions, please put them in the thread. Answering PMs may take longer. Other members may answers to your question faster than me (because of the timezones).

    Start and end times: When ever it is starting to be Thursday in NZ. It is Wednesday afternoon in Europe and Wednesday morning in the US. You can start when you see the tasks. This a-thon will end when it will look like Monday on the last timezone = when it is midnight in GMT -10. I will inform about the time in the thread. How ever, you cannot start officially before you see the tasks so no need to stress about it.

    Here are some tips and "vocabulary" when checking the tasks: A creation means anything that you make. It does not need to be an ATC if not specified in the task. Anything handmade goes well and it doesn't need to be available for trade. Also, the media is free as long as not mentioned in the task. A card means an ATC, a chunky book page, an inchie or anything that can be called as a card.

    Because we are creating different sizes and forms of art here, it may be useful to inform others if it is an ATC, inchie, chunky etc. so we know the size.

    Very important: Mention the task (both the number and description so I won't miss it) you have completed when posting a picture. You can put max three tasks in one creation but remember to mention them all.

    I will make marks in the thread to show you when I have counted points so far. When you see the mark, you know that I'm not going to look back anymore. If you change anything in your earlier posts, remember to send a message after that.

    1 point per task if nothing else mentioned. Total 100 points. You can get points from one task once only.


    If you do not understand a task, please ask. We all are happy to help. Don't take tasks too seriously. Everything goes as long as you can keep some kind of connection to the original task.

    TASKS ARE IN THE NEXT POST

    And remember, of course you can join this a-thon even if you don't join the hunt!

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

    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 or just simply click Like button.

    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 copy the image location
    2) Go to your post and paste the copied text
    3) and then you're done.

    Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. Find the word in the address and change it to the size you want.

    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.

    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.

    Don't know what a Challenge Hunt is so I will watch for details
    "Imagination is more important than knowledge" Albert Einstein
    "Making ATCs is more important than making dinner" Laffqueen
    If I comment on your work it means I'd love to trade.

    If anyone has any ideas for tasks, you are very welcome to send a pm to me . I may not use them now but I always list them and use later when you have already forgotten what you have suggested.

    I LOVE your Challenge Hunts - they are so much fun and I always have at least 1 challenge which takes me out of my comfort zone.
    Unfortunately I will be in New Zealand when this one is running so unable to play. I will have my iPad with me so will try to drop in and chat.
    For those who have never played before - try it! Once played you will never look back.

    I won't be home. I will be babysitting that week and I have my last craft show for this year. I have been busy with those this fall. I will try and check in and see what I will be missing. and just see what people have to chat about.

    Thank you for the invite. Unfortunately, I won't be able to play because it is report card time again and also I am taking a professional development course.

    I want to play so badly!!!!! We are still cleaning out Dad's apartment so I won't be able to play this time. We are getting very very close to being done and ready to surrender the keys. The contract deadline is Christmas and I think we are going to be done ahead of time. Then I get to sort the boxes and boxes of stuff we brought home. It was the only way to meet the deadline - postpone some of the sorting and send stuff to local charities here in NJ at a more reasonable pace. If anyone wants some old book pages or map snippets just PM me with your address. I need to get your request through a PM since I can't keep up with the thread. I'll make a list and some time after the new year I'll get some packets together. Have a great time everyone and Happy Thanksgiving and giving thanks for all of you!
    My APC add
    I am interested in trading for cancelled US international stamps - specifically the succulent and globe stamp - please pm me.

    I have never done a challenge hunt but it sounds mysterious and fun. I am still recovering from my stem cell transplant so my hands are still pretty shaky But will play as I am able. I canít wait to be able to be on the chat and catch up with old friends as well. Thank you so much for including me.
