Meet Virginia

Virginia from MadeByHand is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. One of our treasury gurus, very creative in both crocheting and knitting, Virginia loves to shower love on new Etsy shops.

When Virginia was getting ready to host her first sneak attack, I asked her what prompted her to join our team - she said:

My shop was Sneak Attacked last October (2011) and I'll never forget the feeling -- it was a mix of gratitude and disbelief! I decided to pay it forward and immediately joined the team! It's the best team on Etsy!

Like many of our teammates - it's all about paying it forward!

While Virginia concentrates on crocheting for charity, I went back to her sold items and found a couple of creations that she loves making.

I adore these little bags - I gave some of them to my granddaughters for little trinkets!

Lots of talent!!

And come join us in our sneak attack thread for lots of fun, clues and 'victims' too!

Meet Theresa

It's fun to see our hostess working on a project. Here is Theresa sewing some quilted pot holders. I have several of them, and they are extremely well made!

Charlie is a wonderfully talented young lady and generous with her charitable works. Tearful 天使 Tenshi is an expression of Charlie’s unique perception of the world and why she chooses to donate 50% of her profits to Mencap UK, a leading UK charity for people with learning difficulties.

Meet Kathleen

Kathleen from ArdentlyCrafted is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm Etsy Time.

If you haven't been to Kathleen's shop lately, she has added quite a number of new creations to her list of articulated paper dolls - nothing like the paper dolls of my childhood.

Today, I decided to show a picture of Kathleen hard at work - there is a lot that goes into creating these dolls - and Kathleen has a knack for it!

And of course I couldn't resist showing one of her latest creations. Gorgeous!

Browse often in Kathleen's shop!

And come join us in our sneak attack thread - lots of fun, lots of clues, and meet the members!
