The Sunday Snapshot - March 13, 2016

Posted by Katy Weade

Hello my crafty friends! I am SO EXCITED for this week, but more on that in a minute so I can spend more time on why I'm excited. I also wanted to let you all know that for the first time I am also sort of dreading this week...Not because of anything Blitsy related, but because I will be showing up for work and Live with Blitsy with a huge black eye! I am hoping it won't be too bad tomorrow and you won't be able to tell on camera, but the whole left side of my face is pretty messed up right now. You're probably wondering what happened and I wish I had a really cool story to share, but the truth is I am apparently just a bona fide klutz!

Here's the story: I was sound asleep in the middle of the night when Miles (my 2.5 year old) started crying for me. I sprung out of bed and somehow slammed right into the side of my bedroom door. I hit it really, really hard. In my defense, the door is normally closed, but I am still trying to figure out how I hit it so hard! I definitely got some stares when I went to Target today and spent the rest of the day laying low and icing it at home. So, if you're joining us for Live with Blitsy at 10am CT tomorrow, you will know what happened if you notice my face!

Enough about that, let's get to the GOOD STUFF!

This Week (what I'm so excited for!)

This week, Blitsy Creative Team Member, Carisa, from the blog inky fairy designs will be at Blitsy filming and collaborating with us on Monday and Tuesday! She'll be bringing her Mixed Media expertise to Live with Blitsy and shooting some videos for our website and Youtube channel. We can't wait to have her in the studio and know you guys will love what she has to share. If you have any questions or requests for Carisa please put them in a comment here or join our Monday morning broadcast to interact with us live! At the very least stop by at 10am CT and say hello.


Live with Blitsy Schedule this Week

Just a quick reminder/heads up that Live with Blitsy will be Monday & Wednesday this week instead of Tuesday & Thursday. We had some schedule conflicts that we had to work around. We hope you'll be able to make it tomorrow and Wednesday! Maybe we will pick up a few newbies as well!

Last Week's Top 3 Blog Posts

There was a ton of great stuff shared on the Blitsy Blog last week! Here's a quick recap of some of the top posts. First up, Creative Team Member Adrianne of the Blog Happy Hour Projects shared How to use a 3D Bracelet Jig to make a DIY Wrapped Wire Bangle. I love the bracelet she made. Are you familiar with the 3D Bracelet Jig? It helps you design and shape your own wire bangles!


We were lucky enough to have her in the studio last week! She showed metal stamping on Live with Blitsy (catch the replay here) and filmed some awesome videos we can't wait to share with you. I think you'll see those come out this week. I can't wait!

Next up I wanted to share these Tim Holtz Crazy Birds Cupcake Toppers by Lori Williams of Pinkcloud Scrappers. Are you on the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds bandwagon yet? Or are you more of a Crazy Cats fan?

And the last Blog post I'll share from last week is this super cute project from Meghan showing you how to use the Clover Pom Pom maker to make these adorable Pom Pom Bunnies Easter Craft!


Last Week's Top 3 Videos

Here are 3 of the top videos from last week. You can catch all of our videos on YouTube, so please make sure you subscribe. Last week we hit over a million views on our channel!

So there you have it, my week in review! I hope you saw something that inspired you or that perhaps you missed throughout the week. See you guys tomorrow for Live with Blitsy at 10am CT (Black eye and all!)

Happy Crafting!
