We like to travel the mountains. It soothes our souls and resets our brains when there has been a lot going on. Here in the high desert of Arco, Idaho, we are already a mile high. And we are surrounded by various mountain ranges, desert, buttes, and a river called the Little Lost River because at some point it disappears into the earth. It adds up to endless opportunities to explore. Here are a few photos from our journey over the pass and back on the highway going home.
Snappy Tatter, my online shop!, is up and running again. My wedding was lovely and I will have photos soon.
Over the next couple of days, I will be changing listings that have free shipping back to their appropriate shipping category so feel free to take advantage of what remains labeled as “free domestic shipping” while I get it changed.
There is FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING on all items that are already made and ready to ship from now until 5/28! Come snag those earrings, that special piece of fiber art or J Kohr Couture without paying a shipping fee if you live in the US. Message me if you are outside the states and I can offer reduced shipping to you, as well! The Shipping is already adjusted on items that are ready to go! With 78 items that have Free shipping, you are sure to find something to love! Here are just a few…
Come stop by between bar-b-ques and camping…I will be here all ready to pack and ship in Snappy Tatter-land!
A couple of weeks ago the Spring 2014 edition of my e-Newsletter came out. I’m sharing the information below. The coupon code at the bottom is for all e-Newsletter subscribers, Blog and Facebook followers. So feel free to use it to purchase items in my Etsy shop, Snappy Tatter. I don’t always share e-Newsletters and the coupon codes here so if you would like to insure that you will get a copy, please send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org with a note that you would like to join. My e-Newsletter comes out every couple of months or whenever I have something special to say but not more than once a month so you will not be bombarded by Snappy Tatter. 🙂 I promise.
~Snappy Tatter Spring 2014 e-Newsletter~

Hi there WordPress peeps! Below is the holiday edition of the Snappy Tatter e-Newsletter including the latest sales and coupon codes. Please forgive any format bloops…I copied and pasted from the actual email and sometimes the formatting does not translate.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Greetings from Snappy Tatter! Before the holiday turkey is mutilated and all you crazy peeps get in line to shop at 3 am, I thought I would send out a quick snappy Tatter-land update.From today until Monday, December 2nd, my Etsy shop, Snappy Tatter, will have FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING on all purchases. Just use coupon code“SNAPPYTHANKSGIVING“* during checkout. You can use the coupon as many times as you like.
And for everyone that just can’t resist the urge for that last minute online shopping and are worried about time, here’s what I can do for you:
~I can ship domestic packages through Priority Mail up to 12/21 and your package should be received by 12/25.
~For International orders I can ship Priority Mail up to 12/14**.
~If you think a package won’t make it to you in time, I can ship direct to the recipient for you. Make sure you notify me by leaving a message during checkout or send me a convo or email. Otherwise I always ship to the Etsy address provided.
~Finally, I have some seriously beautiful black and white floral Snappy Tatter wrapping paper and red ribbon. I am more than happy to gift wrap! I can use small stickers that are removable so you can take a peek before you give it as a gift, as well!
From 12/1 to 12/20 there will be a FREE PRIORITY MAIL UPGRADE*** on your holiday order. Just write “Free Priority, Please” in message to seller and I will upgrade your shipping at no cost. Note: This promotion does not speed up my actual tatting! 😉
One last and important note: Thank you everyone who came to visit at the Adams Ridge Holiday Show. I had a great time and I hope you all enjoyed yourselves. Unfortunately, because of a change in my priorities, I will not be attending the Keystone Summit this year. If you would like to see my work in person…you will just have to travel to Snappy Tatter-land! Thanks so much for all of the encouragement and support you all give me throughout the year. I would just not be as Snappy without all of you!

Greetings everyone! Well, camping season is officially over here in Snappy Tatter-land. Booooo. We eeked out one more trip this past weekend and it was almost too chilly at 50 degrees during the day and 40’s at night. Almost. And yes, we were in a tent! And no, there was no heater! As the year winds down, business winds up in Snappy Tatter-land with the holiday season fast approaching. Enclosed in this e-Newsletter are future ST plans and recent works as well as the much coveted exclusive discounts for my followers. Continue reading →
I am so glad I had this give away contest to name my new flower design. It was nice to hear flower names that I wouldn’t have thought of. Camelia is perfect for this design. Thank you Debbie A.! Your pink and white full size Camelia is done and ready to ship. Heidi, yours is the smaller one in Terra Cotta and a variegated cord called “spice cake”. It is a different version with 12 petals instead of ten. It is denser and a little flatter. I hope you like it. And for Christine, a black and medium charcoal 10 petal small version. It is less cupped than the larger one but I like it just as much as the other ones.
~New Camelia Bobby Pins~
The large black and silver one in my hair is my own. It took me about 20 shots to get a good picture of the back of my head. Yes, the pink is back in my hair! 🙂
The Camelias will be invading my shop by the end of the week. There are over 35 color options not including several variegated colors to choose from. Watch facebook for their listings.
The Bobbies will ship tomorrow! I hope you all like them!
I am loving so many of the flower name entries that I have received and am inspired to use many of your suggestions for future designs.
I found three of the entries very intriguing for the general design. And yes, Christine, I love “Bella Noir” for the specific bobby that was shown. I was looking for a more general name that could be used with any color combination. And I was looking for a feminine name that was visually close to the design. I perused the internet via my own search and your links and I came up with these three finalists…
~The Lenten Rose~
entered by Heidi O.
entered by Debbie A.
entered by Monica B.
This was very hard to choose and I slept on it but the same winner keeps coming to mind…Debbie Arnold who entered the Camelia!
I love the tight, rounded, overlapping features of the Camelia. And visually, when I put the photos side by side, the Camelia jumps out as the closest flower to my design. Congratulations Debbie! And thank you for naming my newest flower design! You can choose up to two colors in the photo below and I will tat this new design for you and create a bobby pin with a pearl center. I can also make a brooch. Contact info is at the bottom of this post.
Because the choice was so difficult, there are runner-ups in this contest. Yay!
Heidi O., thank you for the Lenten Rose. Monica B., thank you for the Gardenia. In the future I will be working to create more accurate representations of both of these flowers. And Christine B., I looooove your enthusiasm 🙂 and must admit that Bella Noir is a beautiful name for the black and silver flower. The three of you will each get their own Bobby in a smaller size (2 layers instead of 4) in up to two colors.
So-Debbie, Heidi, Monica and Christine, please choose a primary color and secondary color by number or letter from the photo above and send the information in a Facebook message or comment below, or to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all the ladies who participated! You can many more hair accessories in this section of my Etsy shop. This was so much fun. Stay tuned for the next Give-away and more Snappy Tatter happenings!
Okay, you have all been very enthusiastic about this give-away. Let me give you the list of flower names I have so far…
day night bloom
If you don’t see your entry send me a message! And remember each name can only be entered once and the first person to enter the name is chosen. I have contacted everyone who has entered a duplicate name. So pick your brain and see what else is in there.
And while I spend some time thinking about these names and looking up photos you can still send me your entry until 11 pm EST tonight! You can find the details and photos for this give-away here.
