Site Notice: Reconstruction

Well darlings, it’s been quite a while.

We will certainly update you about all that & the reasons why soon.

First though, we’ve got more pressing matters at hand. Our business & website are going through yet another complete overhaul. While all things are being shuffled around & new security measures begin to take hold, I will be redesigning the place from top to bottom & fixing some of the formatting issues with text that occur when switching views from desktop to mobile devices.

We are going for a cleaner look with less of a cluttery mess in our sidebar area.

Some important points to mention

  • We will be updating our Terms due to incidents that occurred over the break
  • There will be cross-platform changes & updates (Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube)
  • Art Services are temporarily suspended until April. (We are booked solid & consulting new clients.)
  • Sleepy Sundays has come to an end. (For now, until further notice. We are planning something new.)
  • We are currently searching for a social media manager. Contact us for more info.
  • Snapping Turtle is interested in branching out even further. (More details on this coming up.)

We’ve missed you tremendously. Thank you for being patient & supporting us while we had a lot going on.

We ask for a little more of that patience while we get things back in order here & sweep out all the dust creatures that creeped up inside our little castle in the clouds while we were away.

Love Always,

The Snapping Turtle Family

After talking it over with a few of those nearest & dearest to me, I plan on using this concept as a base-work for future endeavors. The neat detail about it is, the original is a transparent mask, so I can place that little branch with our feathered friends on it just about anywhere.

What do you think we should use it for? The possibilities are endless.

Have a peaceful Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Heart Stream

Way back when artwork was sold here as home decor & greetings, Valentine’s Day cards and greeting card designs became sort of a tradition here every year. This one was designed with watercolor effects in mind. I decided to make it into a simple patterned greeting. Sometimes less is more. I love these colors so I just might keep this one and add it to the growing new gallery.

Have a light-hearted Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Nature Lamps

Night scenes have often ended up in my wall art or any number of designs. This one is no different. Though it has the surreal twist of glowing flowers. They were inspired by a fantastic, wacky, and wonderful dream had during this strange week of spring-like weather. I plan on using other visuals from that one in future designs. Some of these may even make appearances in upcoming trailers for Alicia in the Woods. I look forward to the coming months with you.

What fantastic places have you visited in your dreams lately?

Have a surreal Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Water Peony

Water Peony

This weekend as I sent out my folders to my list of clients we did a little dance between stress and happiness. Friday night I went out like a light after a week’s worth of the nuttiness that can be a work week. Saturday morning awakening to some of the sweetest words ever made my day over and then some. Into the night my hands worked away at florals and the closing of some other projects. There is so much in store for this February. Even though there is still quite a bit of negative going on in the world, your love shines through it all.

This design was inspired by paintings done with loved ones throughout childhood. It will act as sort of a logo mascot as well as a template for my February into spring custom design collections.

What driving force gets you moving? Has someone made your Sunday yet today? Better yet, have you made someone’s Sunday today? 🙂

Have a peaceful Sunday!
