Without our Hosts/Hostesses we wouldn't be able to carry out our team's mission of helping new or recently opened shops with few or no sales get a significant boost in views, faves and maybe their first sale! It's very rewarding and lots of fun and
you'll have plenty of support from the rest of the team!
So sign up, get a warm fuzzy feeling
and be a hero to the shops you Sneak Attack!

If you are a member of the Handmade Movement Team on Etsy and would like to help continue our mission by hosting a Sneak Attack,

Meet Sandi and EliSe

Sandi from HandmadeBySandi and EliSe from xEsFunThings are teaming up again to host our Sneak Attack today at 3pm.

Since we are so close to Halloween, we're hoping that we will see some wonderful 'costumes' today.

I love it when we have co-hosts - especially when one is from the US and the other is from the other side of the pond - makes it easier to host, and have all our members pop in at different times of the day.

In keeping with our Halloween theme...

Love these earrings from Sandi's shop

And these earrings from EliSe's shop

Be sure to check out all the Halloween goodies in these shops as well as items for everyday!

And come join us in our SPOOKTACULAR Sneak Attack thread for lots of fun and excitement!

Meet Theresa

Theresa from KraftyGrannysHome is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. A frequent sponsor - Theresa has a knack for finding very creative, very new Etsy shops that we want to introduce to you.

Do you know how Theresa came up with the name of her shop? 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 crafty is what Theresa is. She has so many lovely items in her shop - this is one of my favorites. It will probably be yours too! I just know you have tons of t-shirts that you would love to see in your very own quilt.

Be sure to browse through Theresa's shop. With so much to choose from, it will be difficult to select just one.

And come join us in our Sneak Attack thread - see if you can guess who Theresa's victims will be from her clues.

Meet Kelly

Kelly from juBEADlation is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. A long time member and frequent sponsor, Kelly can always be counted on to find the cutest new Etsy shops to surprise!

I always wonder how our members come up with the name for their shops. Kelly says it perfectly:

juBEADlation comes from jubilation (the feeling I get while making jewelry) and bead (my primary medium).

And you can tell that Kelly loves what she creates! In browsing her shop this morning, I discovered a brand new item! Wine charms - and who can't use a set of two of these.

From wine charms, to jewelry, to ornaments - you will definitely find just the right gift for someone on your list. (as of today, there are only 62 days left until Christmas).

Come join us in our sneak attack thread - friends, clues, shops - you will have lots of fun.

I took a peek at Corrie's shop this morning - she has wonderful items for the girls in your life - but what about your guy? Let's not forget about him... creative bow ties!

I love this one with it's Christmas look:

Meet Virginia

Virginia from MadeByHand is hosting our sneak attack today at 3pm. I was supposed to host, but had a little health issue, and Virginia jumped right in to take over for me. Our whole team is like that - and it's such a warm and wonderful feeling to have lots of friends like Virginia.

I decided to take a quick peek at Virginia's shop and fell in love with this scarf! So classy looking, will go with almost anything.

Check with Virginia - she would love to make a custom scarf for you!!

And come join us in our sneak attack thread - can you figure out who the 'victims' will be?

Susanne makes the most wonderful hand painted and hand spun yarn. But did you know she also makes the cutest hair accessories? I for one love to get things like this - I have two granddaughters who just love to dress up!

And not only does Susanne make this for your little one - there is also a story behind it. Be sure to check out this and other items from Susanne's store - something for everyone!!

Meet Lynn

Lynn from LynnHanousekDesigns, is hosting our sneak attack today at 3pm.  A cat lover from way back, Lynn is always there to help, offer advice and join in the fun at past attacks. Today, Lynn will be creating her own fun by supplying clues to help our members figure out who her 'victims' will be.

When Lynn first hosted an attack, I asked her why she joined our team.

This past May (2012) I was featured in a Sneak Attack treasury. I checked out "The Handmade Movement" website, liked what I found and decided to join. Helping and encouraging others fits into my basic life style values and I have found this team to be genuinely warm and supportive, not only to new shop owners, but to one another. 

And now, Lynn is helping again, by having a fundraiser in her Etsy shop for Courageous Cats - an animal rescue program on Long Island, NY.

Here is one of Lynn's paintings for her fundraiser and I was lucky enough to get it and help support her cause.

Keep checking Lynn's shop - her fundraiser goes on all month - and you might be able to help too.

Be sure to join us in our sneak attack thread today - check out the clues and have lots of fun!
