Meet Barbara

Barbara, from byvala , is one of our international members. A new member, and relatively new sponsor (having co-sponsored once before), Barbara has picked 3 shops that she knows we will love! Already offering neat clues, Barbara is challenging us to create treasuries during the day to see if we can guess who her 'victims' are!

I asked Barbara what prompted her to join the Handmade Movement/Sneak Team. She said:

I got sneaked and that was so amazing! I think it's nice to pay it forward and to sneak other shops. I love to give other such a good feeling!

Barbara was sneak attacked in January and is already a very active member - you go Barbara!!

I wanted to show you some of Barbara's wonderful work. My hands are always cold, when I'm working on the computer and I just LOVE her fingerless gloves.

I love all the colors, and now that she has added her spring time mittens, I can't decide which I like better. Which would you choose??


Come join us during our Sneak Attack thread as we get ready for the names of the shops to be revealed to us at 3pm Etsy time.

SNEAK ATTACK SHOPS 3/25/2013

Today's "Victims" and Sponsor, Theresa of KraftyGrannysHome are shown in this gorgeous treasury made by Sandi of HandmadeBySandi


Meet Theresa

Theresa from KraftyGrannysHome is sponsoring our sneak attack today that starts at 3pm Etsy time.

I went back to my notes and found that Theresa was a 'victim' of a sneak attack in November of 2011. She sponsored for the first time in January 2012 and has been an active sponsor ever since! I'm sure being a victim encouraged her to join our team and pay it forward!

I am always browsing our sponsor's shops, to see what wonderful new goodies have been created. I was not disappointed! I found this adorable new quilted wall hanging in Theresa's shop - I have one of her wall hangings and I can tell you that Theresa's attention to detail creates a beautiful addition to your home.



The above wall hanging is a custom order. Check with Theresa - I know she will love to work with you on YOUR custom order.

And join us in our Sneak Attack thread as find out what clues Theresa gives us to help us guess who her victims are!

Meet Sandi

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

 Sandi loves to crochet and it shows - from felted bowls, to baskets and so much more - she likes to make a variety of items and is always looking for patterns that her customers will like.

Here is her latest creation! A crocheted basket that can be used for almost anything!





If you have noticed, most of our Sneak Attacks start at 3pm. We have lots of international members, and want to make sure they can participate and still get a good night's sleep. For many that time is early evening, and they can pop in and chat with us before the reveal and feel like they are an important part of our team - which they are!

Come join us in our Sneak Attack thread today, meet many of our members and have lots of fun!

Meet Kelly

Kelly from juBEADlation, is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 3pm. All day, Kelly will be supplying us with fun clues - to get us thinking about possible 'victims'!

Checking out Kelly's shop to see what new, I learned about her ornaments.

I have recently been expanding my products. I have found a passion for making ornaments and you will be seeing more of them appear in my shop. I plan to make ornaments for all occasions and ones that can be enjoyed all year long. 

I love the butterflies and lace on this one - wouldn't it look great hanging from a mirror - to enjoy every time you walk by?




Where will you hang YOUR ornaments to enjoy all year?

Meet Summer

Summer from SummerWilson8 is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 3pm. She has been a member of the team for quite a while.

I checked back through my notes, and Summer was attacked in July of 2010. Since then, Summer has been very active in our team, and loves to make treasuries! As a matter of fact, being attacked was what decided her to join our team!

The first time that Summer sponsored a sneak attack was about two years ago. And she has sponsored several times since then.

I went browsing through her shop this morning - I love all the earrings that Summer makes, as I've an obsession about earrings - but I guess you know that :D

And boy, did I find a wondrous pair!

  

Not only do I love these earrings, but I love the way Summer has created the image for her listing.

Be sure to see all of Summer's earrings as well as other creations! And then come join us in our Sneak Attack thread for lots of fun, clues and treasuries, as we get ready to surprise 3 new shops!

Meet Sandi

Sandi, from HandmadeBySandi, is sponsoring the sneak attack today at 3pm. A frequent sponsor and long time member, Sandi is known to pick some exciting new Etsy shops as 'victims'.

One of Sandi's passions is to make felted bowls. Almost 4 years ago, she got hooked on the idea of creating a different look for her crocheted bowls. Using a variety of yarns and crochet hooks, Sandi makes something unique. And many of her felted bowls are already in good homes :D

Sandi gets most of her yarns from other Etsy shops! We love that she enjoys supporting the Etsy community.
