Are you making plans for New Year's Eve but don't want to leave the warmth of your home?  Well you are in luck.  

I am organizing a Streamathon on USTREAM.TV to help celebrate the New Year in MOST of the time zones around the world.  I belong to a wonderful community of streamers from all over the world who will VOLUNTEER to stream in 1, 2, or more, hour sessions.  So far there are only a few time slots filled, however, do not fear; one way or another (may include some major trickerheading!) all the time slots will be filled.  

So..... If you are a member of our online community and wish to stream in one of the time slots please contact me on Twitter or Facebook (if you follow me in either of these social media) or leave a comment here.  I will update the schedule here as times fill in.

As you can see there is time at the end of the schedule that is empty as I am waiting to hear back from one of 2 people to take this slot as Meko moved into another cancellation.  Well It is going to be a great number of hours of fun streams.... PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS A FUN TIME AND WE ARE DEPENDENT UPON THE INTERNET AND USTREAM CONNECTIONS THAT ARE BEYOND THE CONTROL OF THE STREAMERS!!!!! 

Click HERE for a PDF of the streamers list you can print it and follow along that way if you wish...IMPORTANT NOTE - the links on the pdf will not link you directly to the streamer just to the ustream homepage for a live direct link see the list above.

Here is an interesting link showing all the time zone for the new year....
Our group has done this a few times before and it is a lot of fun.  Some streamers may work on a specific project that you can follow along with.  In this case I will post info here on an update.   Some will simply work on whatever is on their desk.  It is up to the individual streamer.

Also we are not organizing any major prizes or giveaways so please don't come thinking you can win a huge prize like some other streamers give away on NYE.  This is simply for fun and a chance to spend time with our wonderful art community.  That being said; some individual streamers MAY choose to have a giveaway but that is not expected and totally up to them and it will also be up to that streamer and their mods to decide how the giveaway will work.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Neither myself nor any of the streamers will give credence to complaints regarding the process of the giveaways.  There is lag with Ustream chat and therefore the streamer and/or their mod(s) will make final decisions on giveaway winners based on the results in their chat.

I hope to see you all Dec., 31st, 2016

Please remember this evening will be for FUN and FUN ONLY.....

Watch for future updates as we get closer to the New Year! 


  1. Looking forward to this! I'll have to plan an easy dinner so I don't have to miss too much! Thanks for planning and organizing this, Jean- it sounds like it's going to be a really great way to end the old year and start a new one!

    1. Thanks for all of the hard work to set this up, Jean. I have enjoyed watching some. Just wish I was feeling better. Had to skip a lot as I am not able to sit too long. Swelling. Hope we do it again sometime though. It was fun.

  2. Is there still going to be a PDF?? Just checking that Oct 27 update is the Final Schedule? thanks

    1. Hi there Cynthea i will be doing a final update once i get home with live links etc. I am still at my family's in Nova Scotia but heading home tonight!

    2. Hi there Cynthea sorry about the delay but I did get the PDF added to the blog... just in time lol

  3. This sounds like fun! I would definitely love to participate next year! :)

    1. Hey there well definitely come as a watcher - most everyone who is streaming has streamed on a regular basis or at least watched and followed our streamers on a regular basis. It is not a closed club or anything everyone is welcome; the more the merrier....

    2. Last year I held a a NYE craft stream all night long on ustream. It was a lot of fun, we had over 200 people watching....if my laptop wouldnt have broke a few months ago, I would be streaming tonight too :) This year I am just a watcher :)

  4. Thank you Jean, you honeymunnysmoochiepie :)

  5. So excited for this. Thank you so very much for planning this fun New Year's for all of us. Hugs and blessings
