Meet Kinslea

Kinslea from TheHeritageCardBox, is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. Kinslea is a new member, and has already hosted a sneak attack - it was so much fun, she's back doing it again.

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.


And do you know someone who has recently had a baby? Adorable boy and girl cards are perfect to include with a gift.


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

And come join us in our sneak attack thread today - check out the clues and meet the members.

Meet Theresa

Theresa from KraftyGrannysHome is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm.

I love to find out how our hosts got started with their crafts. Theresa's talent started at a young age.

I learned to sew at the age of 12, the projects were not fun nor were they anything I wanted to wear, we didn't get choices. That summer I took a sewing class at the local high school and everything changed for me I had a great teacher and got to make things I wanted to wear. I will always be grateful to that teacher for teaching me something I would continue to do all of my life.

I remember those home ec days - didn't get to make anything that I liked either.

Theresa has taken her love of sewing in a variety of crafts - from quilts to wall hangings and so much more.




Oh, I could go on adding pictures - but I know you will love browsing in Theresa's shop - for all kinds of Krafty things!!

And come join us in our sneak attack thread today - to get ready to greet some new Etsy shops...

Meet Kinslea and Andrea

Kinslea from TheHeritageCardBox and Andrea from CunninglyCrafted are co-hosting our Sneak Attack today at 2pm.

Kinslea is a brand new member - a victim of a recent sneak attack and now a brand new host! Andrea has been a member for quite awhile and has hosted several times. What a wonderful team! And I know that the shops they have chosen will be wonderful too!

Kinslea comes from a small town in North Carolina. Her grandmother loves making cards of all kinds and shared that love with her daughter and granddaughter. 3 generations creating cards that will warm the hearts of those who purchase and those who receive them.

Chose from birthday, to sympathy to get well. Each card is unique!


As I said, Andrea has been a member for quite awhile and her creations have evolved over time. In addition to creating bulletin board cut out letters which teaches rely on for their classes, Andrea makes the cutest recycled clothing from jeans and other clothing. From skirts to pants to dresses - you will find items such as this adorable one.


So much to choose from in both shops - you will have fun browsing!

And join us in our sneak attack thread today for lots of fun, clues, and 'victims'.

Meet Theresa

Theresa from KraftyGrannysHome is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. A frequent hostess and definitely a Krafty gal - Theresa loves to find new Etsy shops to surprise.

I once asked Theresa where she got her inspiration. She said:

I really don't know where my inspiration comes from, sometimes things just show up in my brain and I go with it. Sometimes I see something and start figuring how I can change it and make it better.

Wherever Theresa gets her inspiration, she knows how to make it come alive.

I don't want to rush my granddaughters - but once they are married and have their own little ones - I'll need to order some of the delightful creations from Theresa's shop. Like these...



Be sure to visit Theresa's shop frequently, as she always has new and exciting items to choose from.

Meet Virginia

Virginia from MadeByHand is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. A frequent hostess and a very active member, Virginia loves to find new Etsy shops to surprise!

Virginia hosted her first sneak attack back in 2012. At that time, I asked a number of questions to find out a little bit about her. One of my questions was... What got you started with your Etsy shop?

And her answer:

Being unemployed, I found that opening an Etsy shop gave me a positive focus and helped me feel productive!

I know that many of us have felt the same way - wanting to be productive in a fun and creative way!

I always love browsing thru the items that Virginia has made over the years. I have many of them, and have loved giving them as gifts. Have you seen the scarves that Virginia has made? Such a great way to accessorize.



While Virginia is working on a project for charity - you can still check out the items she has made in the past - hope you enjoy them.

And come join us in our sneak attack thread today, see the clues, meet the members and have lots of fun.
