Meet Sandi

Sandi from HandmadeBySandi, is sponsoring our sneak attack today - starting at 4pm. A frequent sponsor and long time member, Sandi always makes the waiting time fun, as she gives out lots of clues to who the latest 'victims' might be.

Sandi and her family always had lots of fun during Halloween, dressing up in scary costumes, playing loud and eerie music, and making sure the kiddies enjoyed themselves as they came to the door for Halloween treats.

Now Sandi creates adorable items for others to use to enjoy Halloween. I just love this black choker complete with a skull button! Won't you just look ghastly...

Check out all the Halloween goodies in Sandi's Shop and then come join the fun in our Sneak Attack thread as we get ready to meet and greet the latest 'victims'!

Sneak Attack Shops 9/24/2012

Lynn of LolaLynn is back in town and has presented us with another wonderful Victim and Sponsor treasury!

Meet Susanne

Susanne from sussesspindehjrne is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 3pm. An international Etsy shop, Susanne is known for her spectacular yarns - if  you haven't seen them or used them, you are really in for a treat!

Many of our team members work outside the home. When I asked Susanne about that she said:

In my daily work, I teach children and young people, who have had a difficult start and difficult to engage in the ordinary schools. As the job every day requires 100% attention, I love my creative moments, when I can gather new strength and get complete relaxation when I immerse myself in the solution of a craft challenge.

Did I mention Susanne's fabulous yarn??? I really had a hard time deciding on just one. But I love the color combination in this one.

Susanne has sponsored a number of times, and she always finds the neatest shops for us to surprise! And I'm sure today will be no exception - at 3pm, you will find out the names of those shops  - and  you can purchase, feature and share the love for all the great creations that you see.

Come join us in our Sneak Attack thread as we get ready for lots of fun, clues and treasuries!

Oh and we are celebrating 4 years of sneak attacks! You will see many of us in our party clothes :D

Sneak Attack Shops 9/22/2012

Our Saturday Sneak Attack "Victims" and Sponsor are featured in this fantastic treasury by 
Theresa of KraftyGrannysHome!

Meet Maria

Maria from MsBittyKnacks is sponsoring our Saturday sneak attack which starts at 11am Etsy time and goes for at least 24 hours!

Maria works during the week, like so many other Etsy shop owners, - and finds the weekend a great time to introduce new Etsy shops to the team and the entire Etsy community as well.

What a wonderful way to start the weekend, by providing much love, purchases and hearts to unsuspecting 'victims'.

Because Maria works outside the home, you are sure to see her using one of her latest creations - a little zippered pouch that is perfect to carry around in a handbag to hold make-up, coins or pens and small notebooks.

There are several of these little zippered pouches available in Maria's shop - or some of her Halloween items might just catch your eye.

Be sure to come on down and join us in our Sneak Attack thread, as we get ready to surprise those 'victims'.

Meet Theresa

Theresa from kraftygrannyshome is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 3pm Etsy time.

One of our frequent sponsors, Theresa always finds the neatest new shops to introduce us to. And I'm sure today will be no different.

When I first interviewed Theresa back in January, I asked if she worked outside the home.

She said:

I am retired now and spend most days working in my sewing room creating. 

And if you visit Theresa's shop often,  you will ALWAYS find something added! Like these new X Marks the Block quilted pillows...

I already have several of Theresa's creations - I know I will add some of these to my wish list. Will you?

Come join in the fun at our Sneak Attack thread - as we get ready to meet Theresa's victims'.

Meet Wendy

Wendy, from UUendysCraftyCorner, is the sponsor today of the sneak attack that starts at 5pm Etsy time.

A west coast member, Wendy is usually still at work, when she joins us at the start our sneak attacks. (we won't tell).

I know it's a little early, but I love fall, as the weather starts turning cooler and that leads into Halloween - one of my favorites! So in browsing through Wendy's shop this morning, I found these adorable skull earrings - do you see the little hairbows? Well Wendy's earrings are made for children and teens. But if you ask her - she might be able to make a pair of earrings just for you with these skulls! I know I'd love them.

Wendy has other Halloween items, as well as many other earrings in a variety of themes. You will love them and your kids will love them too!

And be sure to come join us in our Sneak Attack thread as we get ready to meet the new Etsy shops that Wendy has chosen for our 'victims'!

Two Awesome Sneak Attack "Victim" Treasuries
From Theresa of KraftyGrannysHome

From Lynn of LolaLynn

Meet Sandi and Kelly

One of our veteran members, Sandi from SandisStashShop has teamed up with Kelly, a relatively new member from jubeadlation, to sponsor our sneak attack today at 4pm.

We love when our members work together to promote new Etsy shops!

I decided on an early cancer survival promotion - even though October is traditionally the month of awareness.

Sandi is a 6-year cancer survivor. Often, Sandi has items in her shop that promote cancer survival, like fabric and stitchery kits. When she saw this kit - she knew she wanted to make it available to other survivors.

Kelly joined our team a little while ago and when I asked her why she did - she said:

I stumbled across the team and loved the concept of helping other shops out.

I browsed Kelly's shop this morning - and found something in pink that would be perfect for a cancer survivor.

If you know someone who is a cancer survivor, I know you will find a variety of items in these shops that would show how much you care about that person.

And come join us in our sneak attack thread as we get ready to meet some terrific new Etsy shops!

Meet Virginia

Virginia, from MadeByHand, is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 3pm. A frequent sponsor and avid treasury maker, Virginia always picks some wonderful shops and provides fun clues so many of our members can create treasuries too!

Since pets are an important part of our family, I always like to ask our sponsors about theirs.

Says Virginia:

DH has a tank of tropical fish. And...

we had a desert tortoise that we rescued after we found him walking in the street near a canyon. He was so interesting and loved to eat lettuce and watermelon. Did you know that they hibernate in the winter?

We thought "Mr. T" escaped from the back yard because we couldn't find him. Then in the spring, we started hearing this scratching sound in the storage shed and it was Mr. T waking up from his long slumber! We were better prepared the next winter and made him a nest


Having absolutely nothing to do with pets - but lovin' the colors is this gorgeous crocheted hot pad (I have some that I've gotten from Virginia). Purple is one of the favorite colors of many of our members - is it yours too?

Pick your favorite colors in Virginia's shop - there are so many to choose from! And then come chat with us in our sneak attack thread - while we try to guess who our 'victims' will be!

Be sure to sign up for the latest giveaway - the drawing will be in one week!
