Meet Theresa

Theresa from KraftyGrannysHome is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. Theresa is a long time member and a frequent host. She loves surprising new Etsy shops!

Ever wonder how a shop got it's name? Here's Theresa's answer...

The name was tough I knew I like being crafty, so I went with a "K" instead of the "C" - Granny just because that is want I am, and Home because that is where the Heart is.

And she is indeed Krafty!! Theresa loves to try new patterns -





Lots of wonderful creations in Theresa's shop - feel free to browse.

Come join us in our sneak attack thread - there's fun for all!

Meet Sandi

Sandi from HandmadeBySandi is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. A long time member, Sandi loves to find great new Etsy shops to surprise.

While Sandi has been hosting for a long time, she wants you to know how easy it is to find new shops that can use a little boost, host a sneak attack, and have lots of fun at the same time.

We have a lot of members in our Handmade Movement team, many of whom have hosted sneak attacks in the past. Others help finding shops, co-host, and help the team as well. Not everyone can host - but for those who can, it's very rewarding.

Want to know more about how you can host a sneak attack? Check out this link. Of course if you have questions we are always here to help.

Come join us in our Sneak Attack thread today - to meet many of our members, and have fun greeting our 'victims' at 2pm today.

Meet Andrea and Leslie

Andrea from cunninglycrafted and Leslie from themudplace are co-hosting our Sneak Attack today at 2pm Etsy time.

Andrea has been a member for quite awhile and Leslie is a brand new member - always love when a new member pairs up with a 'veteran' to help new Etsy shops.

A bit about Andrea:

I have been sewing since I was 16. I started out wanting to be able to make clothes for myself, then discovered it is more fun to make clothes for other people! I make jean skirts and swim "board" skirts out of pre-loved jeans and swim trunks.

And Leslie:

I discovered an interest in clay with a pottery class I took in Jr. High School. It was just basic hand building techniques, like slab and coil work, but it was enough to plant a seed. The first time I had access to a pottery wheel, I was in High School. After my very first session on the potter's wheel, I was hooked!


I love all the 'remakes' from Andrea's shop!



And I love the pottery from Leslie's shop



Which will you choose as you browse these wonderful shops?

Join us in our sneak attack thread for lots of fun!

Meet Charlie

Charlie, from TearfulTenshi, is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. From England, Charlie loves to host the sneak attacks, though she doesn't get the chance very often. We always love the shops that she finds to surprise!!

Charlie's shop is designed to support a charity - all profits go to the Marie Curie Cancer Care.

When Charlie first started hosting our sneak attacks, back in 2013, I asked her where she got her inspiration. A delightful answer:

General inspiration for my artwork 
can come from the smallest things, since I was a little girl the simplest things made me happy like the wind in fall whipping up the leafs in circles, I used to say was fairies riding on them and having races, as you do at 7 years old!

I love these darling little hair clips - my granddaughters wore them forever.


And what a cute birthday card!!


A delightful quilt.

I recently ordered some bracelets from her, for my granddaughters - haven't sent them yet - waiting for just the right time.




And someone from my team sent me this adorable greeting card for me to use next year for my sweet hubby. Awww
