The Sunday Snapshot - Feb 28, 2016

Posted by Katy Weade

Happy Sunday, Everybody! It's a beautiful day here in Chicago, Miles is taking his nap, and I get to spend some time sharing the top videos and Blog posts of the week from Blitsy! I always love to do this because I know with so much going on it's easy to miss some stuff throughout the week.

Today I am actually going to start with the week ahead. Then after that I'll post links to what we were up to last week. I want to start with what's happening tomorrow because I am so excited! It's Leap Day, which means an extra day in the year for crafting :) With that being said, take a look at what we've got in store..

Leap Day at Blitsy

Here's what you don't want to miss out on tomorrow:
-29 cent items hidden throughout Seriously! They will go fast, so make sure you're shopping early! Starts at 10am CST on Monday the 29th
-Top 29 items in each category: We've listed the top 29 recent top sellers by category. There is sure to be a bunch of stuff you'll need :)
-Creative Team Blog Leap & $100 giveaway launching tomorrow at 9am CST

See? Make sure you make time to stop by tomorrow morning!

National Craft Month at Blitsy

Tuesday, March 1st marks the start of National Craft Month. You KNOW we wouldn't let that slide by without making a big deal about it! So, in true Blitsy fashion, we're throwing a Live Event :) We'll have a special day filled with 4 Live with Blitsy broadcasts! You can catch us live at 8am/10am/12pm/2pm CST. These broadcasts will have special challenges to get you crafting, product demos, project ideas, and giveaways! You can RSVP on Facebook for all of the details.

We'll also be hosting a fun Instagram Challenge all month long! There will be a prompt each day for you to take a crafty picture. We'll be handing out prizes to participants each day! Make sure you follow us in Instagram for all of the details.

Last Week on the Blog

Natalie kicked off the week with a modern St. Patrick's Day Banner. I love how she choose to do this in Black instead of Green. You could use this all year round to wish your loved ones luck!

Chrissie shared a back to basics masking technique for stamping - using sticky notes!

And for Mixed Media we had this gorgeous Mixed Media Wall Art by Kim

As well as Carisa who shared Simple Shapes in your Art Journal inspired by Dina Wakley.

Last Week's Videos

Per usual we had a lot of fun videos, too! Here were some of my favorites.

Live With Blitsy (Tuesdays & Thursdays at 10am CST) was in full effect! On Tuesday I loved the Color Crush Planners! Check out the replay.

On Thursday we had our friend Ken Oliver in the studio to show us his new Color Burst Colors and Liquid Metals. The Caribbean Brights are my absolute favorite colors in the Colorburst family. Check out the replay, plus a couple more videos we did with his products.

Need something quick and easy to craft up? Then you'll love these next videos!

And of course Heidi had some more knitting 101 videos for all of you!

Whew! That was a lot! It is now almost 7pm, which means this didn't end up getting published during nap time ;) I can't wait for the week ahead and hope to see you all around! Join us at 9:30am CST on Periscope for 3 Things to Make this Week and another run-down of the events going on this week.

Happy Crafting!
