Meet Monika

Monika from TobisiasLilThing, is hosting our sneak attack today at 1pm Etsy time. Monika always finds the cutest shops to surprise and I'm sure today is no exception!!

Monika's shop was sneak attacked 2 years ago, and she been the host several times. According to Monika...

Few years ago - about 2-3 years after my coming to England - I decided to make my first card - Namesday card for my Dad, this first one was silly looking one but my Dad loved it and that's how I started with my new hobby.

And boy have Monika's cards taken off - I have several that I use for Birthday cards - they are too cute and my granddaughters love them.

Here are just two examples:



Be on the lookout for more cards and gorgeous jewelry in Monika's shop.

And join us in our sneak attack thread for lots of fun!!

Meet Debbie

Debbie, from BumperStickersnmore, is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm Etsy time. Exactly 1 year ago - Debbie co-hosted with Sandi. What a great anniversary!!

Browsing through Debbie's shop, I found lots of Highlights magazines. Wonderful books with things to make, things to do, stories that kept children occupied in the dentist office or the doctors office. I can remember my children reading them. Can you?

A little more about the magazine...

Meet Virginia

Virginia from MadeByHand is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. She is a frequent host and loves finding such adorable Etsy shops to surprise.

Virginia and her hubby live in California and can always be found on the road - visiting friends and relatives everywhere! Boy I wish I could travel like they do - our family is scattered all over the US.

And no matter where they are, at home or on the road, Virginia always checks in with the team, to find the latest news, meeting new members and checking out all the new items in the shops. A great team member all the way around.

While Virginia's shop is on vacation - I took a look at some of the items she has sold in the past - and the items are made with lots of love. Some of my favorites for Halloween are:

Meet Monika

Monika from TobisiasLilThing, is hosting our sneak attack today at 1pm Etsy time. One of our international members, this is the third time that Monika has been a host. And almost 2 years since her shop was attacked - with lots of love.

Monika's shop is filled with delightful greeting cards and adorable jewelry of all kinds. While currently there is only one listing for her greeting cards - they don't last long in her shop - always being selected as something just right.

Looks like not only family and friends like my cards - few of them was printed in crafting magazines:)

That is a great feeling to have one's creation placed in a magazine for many to see.




It's always a treat to browse Monika's shop - lots to see and choose.

And come join us in our sneak attack thread - meet our members and have some fun.

Meet Summer

Summer, from SKWOriginalsbySummer is hosting our sneak attack today at 12 noon. A long time member, Summer loves hosting - but hasn't been able to for awhile, since she works full time ( many of our members do too!) So glad that Summer again has the chance to choose some adorable shops to surprise!

I love to read about our host's shops - there is always such interesting stories about their shop and how they got started. Says Summer:

I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. My first beading venture was a bead curtain for my closet when I was in junior high school. It was massive and heavy. It has since been recycled into some of the creations you see in my shop. I have branched out my designs from those days to the one of a kind pieces you will see in my shop.

Here is Summer and her assistant...


and some of her earrings (I LOVE Summer's earrings - have many pair already)


Summer has lots of earrings and other darling creations for you to browse thru.

And come join us on our sneak attack thread - for lots of fun, meet the members, meet the 'victims' when they are revealed at noon!

Meet Debbie

Debbie from SweetgrassValley is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. Debbie just loves to find new Etsy shops that need a boost!!

Do you wonder how our hosts came up with the name for their shop? Debbie says:

I named my shop Sweetgrass Valley because of the sweet grass I have been blessed to be able to tend since 2002 and the Ohio valley where I live.

Browsing through Debbie's shop is always fun - and since I LOVE earrings, couldn't resist showing you two of my favorites!



Be sure to check out the other wonderful creations in Debbie's shop!

I love to hear about our hosts - everyone's background and life style is so different. Kinslea says:

I'm a busy girl from a family of 7. I enjoy reading, writing, sewing, cooking, and playing the piano (I'm also hoping to pick up the violin someday soon) You go girl.

These religious themed cards are wonderful. Imagine the warmth felt when you send them to someone you care about.

So many card choices - you will have fun looking at all of them!
