I’ve missed you all! I just haven’t been keeping up with my posting on here. I am always faced with that challenge to keep up with my networking, my sales, my new creations, my stitching and my showcasing work here. And then there’s real life…oh yeah, that. At any rate…I did go on another retreat with my lady friends recently and then was out in the woods for our last camping trip of the season during which I caught a cold. I got laid up by the cold for a week and have spent the last week catching up. So here I am again. Hi!
I have decided to continue to send out an e-newsletter to the peeps that have signed up for it but I will only be briefly discussing any local events I may be going to and then directing my e-newsletter fans to here. The reason is because I have been doing things the other way around and I have more followers on here that I would like to get the same info. Just trying to streamline the work that is repetitive.
I have been working on framing some of my fiber artwork. I frame my own work. I have the knowledge and supplies and retail framing is extremely expensive. Considering I do not have the money and have my own mat cutter and acid-free supplies, I just order the frame parts and put it together here. I am hoping to have pictures of three works that have been finished and are awaiting framing. I am looking into making prints for two of the pieces as well as they will be expensive and will take time to sell. It would be nice for people who do not want to commit to the original to be able to enjoy the print. And printings will help provide income while I wait for the originals to sell.
I updated my shop banner to the autumn theme:
Up next is the second part of “The Story of Snappy Tatter” that I started a few months ago when my business turned 5. Here is the first installment: The Story of Snappy Tatter Part I
Also-galleries of my fiber art are coming and three additions to my Tatted Couture watch gallery.
In the meantime…continue to enjoy Free Shipping in my online shop, Snappy Tatter using coupon code “SNAPPYSHIPPING” at checkout.
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!
Everyone have safe and wonderful holidays with all of your families and friends. The next newsletter will be out in the New Year. Until then…
