New Year's Streamathon Project

I have completed my Desk Calendar which was my Project during my time slot on New Year's Eve.  I did not have a pattern for this project it was created in my head and I didn't even make one before the stream to figure out any kinks.  Therefore,  In this post I will post an updated supply list with a couple additions and more measurements for you.  I am posting my photos of my completed project as well as a link to my 2 Ustream videos.

                         1 piece @ 4" x 3.25"     (this piece makes a frame by trimming

Happy New Year


Here we are 2 days into the new year and I still haven't quite recovered from the FABULOUS Streamathon on New Year's Eve.  Thanks to all of you that participated whether it was as a streamer or as a viewer.  The idea came out of conversation between myself and Jen (Ozegran) and Lily (Art Journey) joined in as well.  Jen and Lily both have YT channels and did an amazing job advertizing the event.  

The names of each participant and viewer at each stream have been collated and the wonderful anonymous donor and Jen (Ozegran) will draw for the winner and it will be announced on Jen and Lily's blog,  and YT as well as here on my blog as soon as the 2 names are drawn.  Here are the links . . .

For those of you who attended any of the streams and are new to Ustream there is a group of us who have become an "internet family" thanks to Ustream and sharing of talents and laughter and at times some silliness.  The group is wonderful and we represent Australia, UK, Czech Republic, US and Canada.  Anyone is welcome to join us. Within this particular group we do not have anyone who does their "art" as their sole financial income, although several within the group are on design teams and have Etsy shops.  

Any of you who are interested in seeing more of the streamers and sharing with us your love of "art" you are more than welcome to join us any time.  Many of those who streamed on NYE have a regularly scheduled stream time each week.  For example I stream on Monday at 4 p.m. est.

Lily created a great video wall of streamers for the NYE streamathon and if you click on the word ustream it will take you to the channel.  Then if you click follow they will come up on your Ustream dashboard when they are live.  Click here for the video wall link   Most streamers will also have in their channel info the time of their regular stream.   Remember though at times life gets in the way and streamers sometime have to cancel their "show"  

Also there are times when streamers will do an impromptu stream to share something they are working on and no one else is streaming.  This often happens when someone "BEGS" (aka "trickerheading") for someone to stream.  Many of us are on twitter and we always tweet when someone is coming online.  

So if you had fun New Years Eve come join us every week!!!!
