SNEAK ATTACK NOW GOING ON!
DATE: Tues, Apr. 24-Mon, Apr 30, 2018
SHOP NAMES: AsAPreciousJewels
What's all this? Read our About Us page to find out!
We are changing 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!
Week of Apr. 24- Apr 30 Time: ALL WEEK
Week of May 1- May 7 Time: ALL WEEK
Week of May 8- May 14 Time: ALL WEEK
Week of May 15- May 21 Time: ALL WEEK
Week of May 22- May 28 Time: ALL WEEK

I asked Maria what her favorite creation is and she said:
My favorite creation (so far) has been the Whimsy Stroll piece. It was made for a kawaii group art show, first gallery exhibit. I love it because all the details of the piece (the little back story, the sprinkled frosting base, the characters expressions) its absolutely fun, happy, cheerful, plain whimsical. and everyone, including me would smile when they saw it.
You can see more information about this delightful creation on Maria's blog. And be sure to visit Maria's shop. There are so many adorable creations there!
Come join us in our sneak attack thread - see if you can figure out what shops Maria has picked for her 'victims'.

I asked her what her favorite creation is and why. Sandi says:
I love to make the little soap saver bags. I can make several in a sitting, and in a variety of colors. They are so useful, great way to use all those soap slivers that you would normally throw out. I haven't used all the different colors of yarn that I have yet - more on the way.

I recently asked Summer to tell us a little about her favorite creation. She said:
This wreath amuses me. I love how fun it is to look at. I had it hanging in my room for the longest time after I made it. The colors are so playful.
Summer has a knack from creating wonderful items that you will be able to picture in your home! Check out her shop - it's lovely!!

I asked Mark what his favorite creation is and why:
That would be a custom order for a boho style bracelet set. It was something completely different than the style I usually do. Therefore a challenge which I like. I felt honored she picked me, as there are so many shops on Etsy that do the style she wanted.
This is the bracelet and I can see why Mark loves it - and the customer did too!
There are so many gorgeous items in Mark's shop - you will love them all. Let us know what your favorite it too!
And come join us in our sneak attack thread - can you guess who Mark's victims will be?

And speaking of creations - I recently asked Theresa what she would say was her favorite creation and why. She says:
I think my t-shirt/memory quilts are my favorites because I am taking someone's memories and making a new memory for them. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Do you have a lot of t-shirts you'd like made into a quilt? Like this one?
Theresa does a lot of quilting and crocheting and sewing... you are sure to find something just right for you, in her shop.
And come join us in our sneak attack thread - meet the members, greet the new 'victim's at 2pm - you will have a lot of fun!

Talking about creativity. I recently asked Virginia what was her favorite creation and why.
Blankets are my favorite thing to crochet, and I've been trying to whittle down my yarn stash. I recently finished a 12-point star blanket using stash yarn. It measures 66-inches across. I'll probably give it as a holiday gift, it looks like Christmas to me
And here is a picture - it does look like Christmas.
Much of what Virginia does now is make wonderful treasuries and crochet for Charity. Do stop by her shop and say hello.
And come join us in our sneak attack thread - for lots of fun, meet the members and try to guess who the 'victims' will be.
