Meet Ros

Today's Sneak Attack is being sponsored by Ros of Painted Memories by Ros, at 5pm, Etsy time!

Ros always selects some wonderful new Etsy shops for us to see and purchase from. And I'm sure you will find that true today.

I was just browsing through Ros's shop for something to show you, as Ros is an extremely talented painter, and she makes prints of those paintings for you to frame, or use as cards for those special occasions like birthdays, I love you, as well as others.

Know someone who is into vintage firetrucks? I just found a selection of cards in Ros's shop, that they will be delighted with. All made from original drawings.



Be sure to see the other fine art work that Ros has done, and then come chat with us in our Sneak Attack thread!

Meet Castle

Are you ready for a Sneak Attack? I know I am! And our sponsor today, Castle, of Castle Co always comes up with the nicest new Etsy shops to introduce us to!

Castle's passion is handmade soaps and the love that she adds when she makes her natural goats milk soap can be seen in the way she talks about them. Calming Lavender, Energizing Lemon Grass, Bold and Spicy Cinnamon - you get the picture...

according to her customers: They love the way they look, but are quick to tell me how mild and gentle they are and how great they smell. And that it makes their skin feel soft!

My favorite is this vegan cucumber watermelon - love the scent!



What kind of soap do you like? Check out all the different ones that Castle creates, and then come chat with us at our Sneak Attack thread, as we get ready for our next 'attack' at 7pm tonite!

Meet Handmade

Are you ready for a new Sneak Attack?

It's so exciting to be back picking new Etsy shops to introduce to everyone, helping them get a great start in their business.

All of us 'Sneakers' have been there! With so many new Etsy shops starting, and with so many wonderful creations to check out - it's sometimes difficult to get going and be seen.

Today's sponsor is Handmade from Handmade By Sandi and handmade says it all - supporting the Handmade Movement that is the image of the Etsy community!

Handmade has several obsessions - yarn being one of them. Because of that she decided to create stitch markers for other yarn uses - knitters in particular. While she doesn't knit, she knows how important it is that knitters have a tool to help keep track of their stitches. So she created several sets. And because Handmade is a breast cancer survivor, she combined that with the stitch markers she creates.


Check out the other stitch markers that Handmade creates.

And come chat with us today in our Sneak Attack thread. See you there!

Known as Shell, because she has collected shells of all kinds for years, she takes her passion and creates the most delightful items for your pleasure!

Like so many of our sneaker friends, Shell enjoys making items in a variety of categories. She has started creating items for weddings, and I love this one that keeps the shell theme for your wedding day!

As we get back into the swing of things for the new year, one of our sneaker friends, WMS, is sponsoring the Sneak Attack tonight! WMS is Winemakers Sister

WMS has a passion for anything to do with knitting as you can see when you visit her Etsy shop, and she brings that passion to the new shops she introduces us to by selecting at least one shop that has yarn and roving and all of her sneaker buddies love it - cause there are so many of us here who are just passionate about yarn!

A cute item in WMS's shop is this cell phone charm for knitters...


Come spend time with WMS and the rest of us sneakers as we get ready to attack some brand new Etsy shops and their owners. We will be chatting all day, at our Sneak Attack thread. See you there!
