SNEAK ATTACK SHOPS 4/29/2013

Sandi of HandmadeBySandi has made this lovely treasury of today's "Victims" and Sponsor"

Meet Barbara

Barbara, from byvala, is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 3pm. One of our newer members, and an international one, Barbara is very excited about sponsoring today.

One of Barbara's latest creations are these adorable headbands, featuring crocheted flowers! And purple is my favorite color!

I recently asked Barbara where she gets her inspiration for her creations.

I get my inspiration from the material. I do not work from design, I work from material. When I have a nice yarn, I feel it and I see what it can become. I love making things that are useful, I don't believe in l'art pour l'art. That's not me, I'm a very practical person.


You will find lots of different colored flowers for your headbands - check them all out!

And be sure to join us in our sneak attack thread today, as Barbara gives us interesting clues as to who she will introduce later as her 'victims'.

Meet Susanne

Susanne from SussesSpindehjrne is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 3pm Etsy time.

Susanne is one of our international members, and also spins and hand dyes fiber of all kinds.

I asked Susanne how she got started with spinning her gorgeous fiber.

When I went to college back in the early eighties, I was infected by a spinning and fiber addicted teacher who taught me EVERYTHING about wool, spinning and natural dyeing, an occupation that has lasted since, with a break of approx. 25 years when life demanded other priorities, if my kids should have clothes to wear.

Take a look at some of the yarn that is the result of this infection :D And I always have a hard time picking my favorite!


Check out all the yarn and fiber that Susanne has in her shop - you too could become infected with the fiber bug!

And come on over to our sneak attack thread as we get ready to meet the 'victims' that Susanne has chosen for us today.

Meet Susanne

Susanne from SussesSpindehjrne, is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 4pm Etsy time.

One of our international members, Susanne loves to sponsor and find exciting new 'victims' for us to meet.

Being such an active member, I asked Susanne why she joined the team.

I am fascinated by the idea of ​​helping each other and the ability to help others get their shop to grow.

 In addition to gorgeous yarn and fiber, Susanne also offers yarn spinning tools. This drop spindle, in cherry wood, is beautiful and well made.

 If you want to spin your own yarn, or create your own projects with hand-painted and hand spun yarn, Susanne's shop is the place to go!

And be sure to join us in ourSneak Attack thread to find out more about the 'victims' we will meet at 4pm today!

Meet Sandi

Sandi from HandmadeBySandi, is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 3pm.

Today, I want to tell you a little bit about Sandi's stash shop. Many of our members have a second shop and Sandi does too. A desire to help other Etsy shops led to the creation of Sandi's Stash shop - as a way to provide supplies of all kinds at almost cost for the Etsy community.

One of Sandi's popular items is cotton yarn from Peaches and Creme. It is so hard to find this yarn - and Sandi scours the stores nearby to offer a variety of colors for her customers. And since I'm kind of partial to purple - I decided to show this one! It's called Pansy.


You can find a variety of stocked items in Sandi's Stash shop - be sure to check them out!

And come join us in our Sneak Attack thread - have fun with the clues that Sandi will be giving out and see if you can guess any of the upcoming 'victims'!

Meet Wendy

Wendy from UUendysCraftyCorner, one of our California gals, is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 4pm!

I once asked Wendy if she had any pets - at that time she told me 2 cats and 3 fish. I'm not sure if she still has the fish, but you will find mention of her two cats - Msytique & Nyx, in her thank you note on each of her listings! I love that...

And speaking of cats - I love these earrings.


You will find lots of adorable earrings in Wendy's shop, for you, your friends and family members. And did  you know she also has a stash shop?

Wendy loves to give fun clues - be sure to join us in our sneak attack thread and see if you can guess who her 'victims' are!

Meet Charlie

Today's Sneak Attack is being sponsored by Charlie from YukikoDesignsStore.

Charlie was a co-sponsor before a couple of times, kind of getting her feet wet. Today, she is sponsoring solo and we know she will do a great job!

I asked Charlie what made her decide on her Etsy name?

My Etsy name was easy for me as it’s my company name Yukiko 幸子 Designs. Yukiko is a Japanese girls name, which translates to ‘child of snow’, 幸子 is pronounced sachiko, which means happiness. The name Yukiko Sachiko Designs, was chosen to represent my business simply because of the meaning of the words and the way they sound in harmony together. 

One of my friends collects frogs - I know these little hair clips will be a big hit with her!




The owner of one of our international shops - Charlie is excited about revealing the names of the new Etsy Shops at 3pm today.

Be sure to take a look at all the cute hair clips that Charlie makes!

And come join us at our Sneak Attack thread - as we see what clues Charlie is giving us to help us discover new Etsy talent!
