Meet Charlie

Charlie from TearfulTenshi is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. One of our members from across the pond - Charlie doesn't get the chance to host often, so when she does we are very excited - as she always finds the cutest new Etsy shops for us to surprise!

I've been asking our hosts what their favorite creation is and why. Charlie's is a work in progress.

It would be my first charm bracelet in the start to my new jewelry collection which isn't online yet.


I've been making jewelry as long as I can remember, from the age of 6 I would sit outside my house selling homemade jewelry. 

It's been great using beads, some of which I have had for 17 years now.

The birdy charm bracelet is my first time making charms and i simply love it, Its very simple yet affective and I am rather proud that I can finally create such beautiful things.

Be sure to check out all the wonderful creations at Charlie's shop. And watch for her new jewelry line.

Come join us in our Sneak Attack thread - you will get to meet the 'victims' at 2pm.

Audrey of Audreysdecoupagedesi has given us this lovely treasury of today's "Victims" and our Hostess Maria of MsBittyKnacks


Meet Maria

Maria from MsBittyKnacks is hosting our sneak attack today at 3pm. A very busy lady, Maria doesn't often have the chance to host, but when she does she always finds the 'cutest' Etsy shops to introduce to us.

I asked Maria what her favorite creation is and she said:

My favorite creation (so far) has been the Whimsy Stroll piece. It was made for a kawaii group art show, first gallery exhibit. I love it because all the details of the piece (the little back story, the sprinkled frosting base, the characters expressions) its absolutely fun, happy, cheerful, plain whimsical. and everyone, including me would smile when they saw it.

You can see more information about this delightful creation on Maria's blog. And be sure to visit Maria's shop. There are so many adorable creations there!

Come join us in our sneak attack thread - see if you can figure out what shops Maria has picked for her 'victims'.

Meet Sandi

Sandi from HandmadeBySandi is hosting our sneak attack today at 3pm. Sandi loves to find new Etsy shops to surprise and hosts whenever she can.

I asked her what her favorite creation is and why. Sandi says:

I love to make the little soap saver bags. I can make several in a sitting, and in a variety of colors. They are so useful, great way to use all those soap slivers that you would normally throw out. I haven't used all the different colors of yarn that I have yet - more on the way.

Which color would you like? And be sure to browse Sandi's shop for more lovely and useful items. Something for everyone.

Come join us in our sneak attack thread today - see if you can guess who the 'victims' will be.

Meet Mark

Mark from xEsFunThings is hosting our sneak attack today at 3pm. One of our international members, Mark loves to find new Etsy shops to surprise!

I asked Mark what his favorite creation is and why:

That would be a custom order for a boho style bracelet set. It was something completely different than the style I usually do. Therefore a challenge which I like. I felt honored she picked me, as there are so many shops on Etsy that do the style she wanted.

This is the bracelet and I can see why Mark loves it - and the customer did too!

There are so many gorgeous items in Mark's shop - you will love them all. Let us know what your favorite it too!

And come join us in our sneak attack thread - can you guess who Mark's victims will be?
