Terrorific Tuesday: Week 4

terrorific-tuesday-week-4

This month has flown by as fast as a witch on her broom! Can you believe we've completed 4 Terrorific Tuesdays?? Well, unfortunately this is the last Terrorific Tuesday of the year and I'd like to thank everyone who participated and shared their project or idea! Hopefully everyone had some fun and got some good traffic to their site...oh, and I also hope everyone came away from this with some positive inspiration and ideas up their sleeve for the few final days of the holiday and next year too! I wish that all my ideas could come to be by October 31st. I really do try my darndest, but I can't do it all! I know you guys probably feel that way too! Doing a project a week is a LOT of work. All the designers and artists who participated know this...so for you non-artist or crafter types, this stuff doesn't magically brew itself up! It's the result of a dash of time and patience, a pinch of technical know-how, and a handful of creativity! Mix all that in with a whole lot of passion and you've got a wonderful brew!

So without further fanfare (and melted cheese), I present to you the fourth and final Terrorific Thursday!

Fall Wall Hanging
Kim of Sew Sugary Sweet

Honestly, this was a lot of work for me to do. I'm not sure at this point if I will do this again next year. I don't want to say for sure yes, but it's a possibility. I may try to do a big post around early December as well packed with great Christmas projects, but I'm afraid a project a week for December is just too much for me to coordinate. I'm sure you guys understand! If anyone has suggestions or would like to do the links and I do the graphic, I might be up for that. I just don't think I can do it all. I'd be open to your suggestions...so e-mail me at swelldesigner@yahoo.com

And in closing, I say farewell to Terrorific Tuesdays and so does my precious little black cat Pixie!

Pixie is STUNNING!
While I'm going to miss Terrorific Tuesdays, I also can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Amy from Texas said...

Great list as usual! Will you be depressed next week???

Darcy said...

Alexa, I just found your blog (I actually found your list on another blog, gave them cudos of credit for all their efforts and then found out you are the original list maker!). I just wanted to say how much I loved your Terrorific Tuesday lists and wish that I had found you earlier. I do see how much work this could be, but want you to know that we absolutely love it! I really do hope you'll do another next year. Anyway, just wanted you to know that we appreciate all the hard work! - Darcy

What a wonderful blog. Can I follow you? I'm going to look for a blogger follower thingie here.

Also, I'm going to put your kitty picture on my desktop. No! Don't try to stop me!

Rachel:

Thank you! you have been so good to me this season

Amy:

No, kinda relieved.

Darcy:

That's so sweet of you. I may do one. I'm always inspired by Halloween crafts. I think I was just tired when I wrote the e-mail. I will def. consider for next year.

Chris:
Aw thanks. You are more than welcome to use my kitty picture :) She's my baby (a scaredy baby, but that's ok)
