Dear Self: We missed You!

Guten Tag, Friends! I am returning...once again. After surviving the hurricane that is the start of the school year, I am finally starting to wind down and resume normal activity. I am happy to report that; although, I may have been forgetful of my blogger duties, I did not neglect my craft room. And for your abandonment issues, I've decided to treat you all with a plethora of inspiration. Do Enjoy!

WOYWW: Seeing Double

Things are a bit different this week. Not only am I going to show you one work space, I've got TWO! Intrigue is the key...And of course, I've prolonged the wait by holding out for spot 130. Okay, I don't know if I will actually be #130, but figured I could perhaps start a new trend. Who needs to be #1 anyway?

WOYWW: Reminiscing

I did mean to post earlier this week, but at least I've gotten here to join in on WOYWW! This is a fun little time where we all gather and snoop at each other work spaces. Check out the source of all this madness by visiting Julia at Stamping Ground. She is pretty great and you can meet all of her loyal friends, too!

But enough chatter, I know you didn't come here to hear me ramble...

WOYWW: Hit & Run

Well, it’s official! I might actually be back in the swing of things. Not only is this my third week in a row. I’ve made 4 cards since my last post. Woot! Prepared to be dazzled...

WOYWW: The Ghost of Crafting Yet to Come

Surprise! I've returned for the second week in a row! Unfortunately, I haven't done much crafting this past week. But stick around for a minute and I shall reveal the future...

WOYWW: Don't Hold Your Breath

Surprise! Okay, I know I'm kind of lame...3 months, really? Sad, but true. I can't even keep a blog going and all I have to do is craft and write. And now I've missed the 4th Anniversary of WOYWW! Happy 4th, Julia! Check out Julia and all of the other wonderful work spaces over at Stamping Ground.

Well, I won't bore you with what is currently on my desk (a recent Hobby Lobby purchase), but instead share with you what has been in the works since my last post. 

Rufus has been a real motivator...

WOYWW: Just Chillin

Greetings, Friends! Thanks for stopping by for another rendition of WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday for the noobies). I've been absent these past few weeks. Don't really have a reason for it. *shrugs* These things just happen. But I have missed you all! After you check out my awesomeness, be sure to continue your trip around the world for a peak at the other work spaces found at Stamping Ground with Julia.

Liebster Award

I wanted to give a shout-out to Riya at Yori2Yayie. I was pleasantly surprised last weekend to see that they had "nominated" me for a Liebster Award. From what I can tell, the Liebster Award is a cyber ribbon to be granted new blogs for their contributions to the blogosphere. :D

This award was designed to be a blog award in the pay it forward fashion. Once you've been nominated, you award it to five blogs that you like that have fewer than 200 followers, to encourage new visitors to visit these blogs.

Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog. Post the award onto your blog. Give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate that have fewer than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!

Here are five awesome blogs that I think you should check out:
I hope you can take a moment to visit all these lovely blogs!
In case you were curious, I couldn't find the Liebster Awards origins. What I was able to find: it has different rules depending on the chain; it dates back to 2010. 

Breaking the Silence

I feel that after this long break I should have a really legit reason for not blogging. Sadly, I don't have anything really exiting to report. Between the daily activities, our weekend out of town, and my almost pneumonia, I have not spent a lot of time in my craft room. Okay... that isn't completely true. I lied. I did manage to squeeze out a couple of Valentine's Cards. And I have been spending some time sorting out my recent purchases.

WOYWW: Monkeys!

Welcome to this week's rendition of WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday). I have arrived fashionably late, as usual. You'd think that I didn't actually realize what day of week it was...But here you are, making a lovely little visit to my page!

The Reveal!

Thank you to everyone who made it here from WOYWW. [WOYWW should be two blogs down ;] I am working to stop by every one's page before the weekend is through. I just kind of procrastinated when I should have started early on Wednesday.

Okay, I know you have all been just waiting on pins and needles to see the inside of this book. Lucky for you, the recipient was in office today. As I have previously mentioned, I do not care to give away too much of a project here if the new owner hasn't seen it first. But alas, the time has come!

Mixing It Up

If you are over for WOYWW then you want to (also) check out my previous post. This one I wanted to share a few of my current projects/pieces.

WOYWW: Snow Day

We had a snow day today! It's just one of those perks to working at a school :D And you'd think with the whole day to work with I'd have posted earlier...but alas, I fall into old habits. Despite the late start, I do have a few things to share today; so, I think I might actually put a couple of posts up. I like to keep each of my posts relatively simple, not requiring a lot of scrolling. 

Let's get down to business! Welcome to this week's WOYWW rendition by Snapping Turtle:

WOYWW--The Aftermath

I will eventually get into a regular routine of crafting and posting...but until that day comes you can expect sporadic reveals after very spontaneous creativity. I know we had spoken last week about me joining in on WOYWW (What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday) for the 16th [or at least that is the conversation I had in my head]. As you can see that did not happen...BUT in my defense I caught some nasty intestinal virus that put me out of commission for two whole days last week. Not cool.

Birthday Card

I know you missed me. But never fear, I have returned! I told you that I'd show you the finished birthday card :)


First of all, I'd like to say thanks to those who have stopped by thus far-and especially the few who were sweet enough to leave me a comment and/or follow my blog. Thank you! I have not intentionally ignored your comments, and will make it around to each of your blogs this week to reciprocate the attention.

What is This About?? WOYWW meets Snapping Turtle!

Happy New Year and welcome to my first ever WOYWW [What is on your Workdesk Wednesday]. Okay, it is a bit late on a Wednesday, but I still have 2hours left in the day, and I will make them count! I didn't want to be inappropriate and post it last night. And I don't yet know how to create time delayed know, you write it and it gets posted later :)
