What's all this? Read our About Us page to find out!


We have changed the Sneak Attack format to hopefully get more members to participate and make it more fun for everyone.

Andrea of https://www.etsy.com/shop/CunninglyCrafted has graciously volunteered to be the new hostess and Leader of all of the Sneak Attacks and has come up with a new format that we are going to try out. Other ideas or improvements are welcome.

We will only be doing one shop a week!

So it should be easier to give the one shop more love and attention! The SNEAK thread will be left up all week. :)

Andrea and Ros will keep a running list of shops in this thread https://www.etsy.com/teams/7565/handmademovement/discuss/18663140, so if you miss a week, or just get bored, you can go back and see former shops and leave some extra love. :) We know not everyone gets on every day, and some only a few times a month. So that thread will be an easy way for the people who aren't on as often to still see all the fun shops!

Blast from the Sneak Attack Past November 5, 2014

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Dottie, one half of DarlinBabe. Dottie and Abby are a mother daughter team that create unique one of a kind handmade jewelry. I personally love the rings, this one is my favorite.

When I asked how the Sneak Attack affected their shop, here's what Dottie shared;

How did the sneak attack affect your shop?
There was a marked increase in sales! I was a brand-new shop at the time, and was delighted to finally see the sales roll in. And grateful. 

What was your reaction to the sneak attack?
Ha! Surprise. Like now.

Are you selling on other venues?
No. I don't. I do, however, for my other shop: Threadmill. Threadmill sells crochet patterns only on Craftsy.

Comments you would like us to pass on to the team?
Thanks so much everyone. I appreciate your kindness and keeping me in mind. I really appreciate the extremely welcome "bump" the first sneak attack gave my shop. 

This is wonderful, I'm happy to see your shops succeeding. DarlinBabe received 5 sale from the Sneak Attack, today they have over 100 sales. I wish you continued success. 

This will be our last Blast from the Sneak Attack Past post until after the New Year. The date is to be announced. Hope everyone enjoys the Holidays with their families, see you next year!!!

Hi from Susanne and the Handmade Movement Team. This is the last post from me this year and I want to thank you all, who have read and visited the shops and wish you all a wonderful holidays and a great new year.

"Buy Cranky Crow greeting cards here through our Etsy Store and help raise much-needed funds for animal welfare and habitat protection.We partner with groups that rescue animals of all types or help protect wild places. For every card purchased here, we will donate one dollar. Thanks for helping us support some fantastic causes!"

This is what CrankyCrowStudios is about. The Handmade Movement was sneak attacking the shop with the great cause 11/21/2011 and I had the pleasure to go back and chat with Adrian, and hear how their shop is doing now.

Here are what Adrian told me:

It was really great to have the attack. We haven't had much business since though. One reason is that cards are a strange product to sell online. We are working on a new line of kids art though, and are aiming for a May 1st launch. Busy times! We don't sell on any other sites, other than the occasional print through Fine Art America. Thanks very much for everything and I think what you do is awesome!



I hope you´ll go back and visit  CrankyCrowStudios and show them some more love, unfortunately animal still needs protection.
