    Sorry about that, Donna! I’m subscribed to the calendar and got excited when I saw not 1 but 2 new athons from you

    I’ve never done a challenge before but it looks fun! Either time frame works for me.

    I would vote for Feb 24-27 as it is then 2 weeks away from each of my 2 Athons and won't be too close to CynthiaSillitoe's 'No fooling' Athon at the start of April.

    I LOVE your Challenge Athons and admire the way you can keep on top of all of us AND still have time to create - AMAZING!!
    Will your work have quieted down by then?

    somnia - no problems with telling people before me, keep up the enthusiasm

    Donna, that timing is exactly what I was thinking too.

    That week is an official "winter break" in Finland. It means that all schools (not universities) are on vacation. And that means I kind of have to be on vacation too because Hilla is not at school. We'll pack our craft supplies then and spend that week out of the city, again .

    My trades went out today.

    Last night I took my husband to the hospital because he had disturbing neurological symptoms. Today they are transferring him to a larger hospital to do a cerebral angiography to look for signs of an aneurysm or any other explanation for his symptoms. I can't be with him due to Covid.

    Oh no! She was so sweet. She will be missed. I'm so sorry for her family as well... I'm so sad to hear this even though I know it was coming.

    Donnacr, since you asked, about themes. Let me pipe up,

    I dont collect Holiday atc cards but I will gladly make them.

    I like hearts. I like green.

    Maybe "it isnt easy being green", "Have a heart", and of course postage stamps with hearts or love, sound good.
    A very proud theme is "things we love". So of course I would make coffee, cats, sunflowers, zebra etc. So maybe that is too broad.

    Places we love to visit or would love to visit.

    Of course flowers.

    Does that help?

    Any opinions?

    I will brain storm some ideas.

    KESagers - my prayers are heading your way for Judd. I hope that the doctors find out what caused the problem and can fix it.

    CastleQueen5 - thanks for all your suggestions, some of them have sparked other ideas for me as well

    Judd is coming home today. We should be able to manage his condition with medication going forward.
