Meet Debbie

Debbie, from BumperStickersnmore is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. A frequent host - Debbie loves to look for creative and cute shops to surprise.

It's always fun to find out what interests our hosts. Debbie recently told me: I bought some air dry clay. I have a friend who has a kiln and we have had clay play days. 

Sometimes just going off in another creative direction can spark ideas for our crafts!

As you know I love to check out the shops of our hosts. And Debbie's shop always has something new. Recently I found some fun items to share with you.

Are you into classic t-shirts? Debbie has added some that might interest you!







Debbie's shop has many vintage items that you will enjoy browsing.

Meet Kaye

Kaye from sayitwithblooms is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. Kaye hosted back in July and loves it so much, she's doing it again!

About being retired : I've been retired for the last five years. I started out my working life as a registered nurse and ended as a high school teacher. Lots of good experiences as both but it is nice now to enjoy being out of the rat race. So she has lots of time to create!

53 Days until Christmas


With that in mind, I thought I'd show you some Ornaments that Kaye has created.




There are so many other ornaments and Christmas items - be sure to visit Kaye's shop and pick your favorites!

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

Meet Debbie

Debbie from SweetgrassValley is hosting our Sneak Attack today at 2pm. Debbie hosts as often as she can - she is one of our members who works outside the home.

Whenever one of our members hosts a Sneak Attack - I try to find out where their creativity comes from. Says Debbie:

I come from a family of talented artists through my father, an uncle and an aunt, their father and his father before that, I am blessed to have inherited some of their talent and was privileged to be able to watch and learn from my father who did pencil and ink drawings and later made many musical instruments and my favorite aunt who painted beautiful art using the mediums of pencil, ink, watercolor, oils and pastels, she taught me many things about the mechanics of creating a painting and bringing life to a portrait. My father and aunt both had a love and respect for nature and all life and this was instilled in me as well.

I love to browse Debbie's shop - take a look at my favorites.




Be sure to check out Debbie's shop - so much love and creativity.
And come join us in our sneak attack thread for lots of fun, meet our members and see who our 'victims' will be at 2pm.

Meet Genevieve

Genevieve from CrownlandCottage is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. A wonderful host and team mate!

I used to do a lot of sewing and I'm delighted with the quality of Genevieve's work. The range of fabrics, designs, and creative ideas makes her shop an excellent place to view and buy a items that will delight everyone.

I asked Genevieve if there was  some new direction that she may be thinking about:

For next year, I am currently working on a new design for the travel pouch/crossbody bag collection incorporating two different styles of material.

I am looking forward to the new collection and material!


I love this little owl - perfect for business cards and gift cards


You can never have too many tote bags


and my favorite - cross body bags so convenient


From small to large - you will enjoy browsing Genevieve's shop. (Don't forget - Christmas is not that far away)

And come join us in our sneak attack thread for lots of fun and 'victims' who will be introduced at 2pm.

Meet Debbie

Debbie from BumperStickersnmore is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. Debbie hosts as often as she can, and always finds 'victims' who have wonderful creations for us to see.

I mentioned a while ago that Debbie found a lot of her items in the upstairs attic of an old barn/workshop on a property she purchased a few years ago. I asked Debbie to go into a little more detail - as her finds are wonderful.

An interesting thing about the things I sell in this shop is that most were found in the attic. The man who owned the property before me (Mr. Powell) was a teacher and he kept all sorts of things from school lessons and tests and books, very interesting things that I haven't listed yet too. Although, we have the last name we weren't related. I heard he was a very beloved teacher and quite a character, he used to sell the items at flea markets and such, I often wonder what he would think about them being in an online flea market today. I think he would be happy people still enjoy them. 

Some of the interesting and USA items -




Be sure to check out Debbie's shop for a variety of items she found in the attic!

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