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

See our host:
Here I am, beading at my Mac desk. I bead everywhere in the house . . . one of the things I enjoy about beading is that it is very mobile, like poetry, unlike quilting and mixed media art
Be sure to visit Christine's shop - you will find beaded jewelry, and creations that use canvas, paper, plastic, glitter, charms and so much more.
Come join us in our sneak attack thread and see if you can guess who Christine's victims will be.

Theresa has been sewing since the age of 12. And she just keeps getting better. Here she is creating something at one of her sewing machines. I think she's worn out a few with all the sewing that she does!
Be sure to check Theresa's shop frequently - she is always adding something new.
And come join us in our sneak attack thread for lots of fun!

Back in 2012 I decided to put a face to all of our hosts. Since we have a lot of new members now - perhaps you would like to see Virginia in action!! What a lovely blanket she is making. It might be one of her charity blankets or for a friend or family member. Whichever, she always does beautiful work.
While Virginia has her shop on vacation - don't hesitate to browse her sold items to see all of her creations!
And come join us in the sneak attack thread - see if you can figure out who Virginia's 'victims' will be.

When Charlie got ready to host her first time a couple of years ago, I asked her why she joined our team. She said:
I joined the Handmade Movement, just after being a victim to the infamous Sneak Attack, was the first time being out since my operation, I was out at the Korean Cultural Centre and really not feeling up to it and I got several e-mails with sales, which made me extremely excited and happy had no clue what the sneak attack in the message meant though!
When I eventually found out I instantly joined the movement as I truly believe its an amazing thing we all participate in and I want to help in every possible way.
Charlie is always coming up with the cutest cards - here's one of her latest, what a great way to say congratulations to friend or family member!
TearfulTenshi is a charity shop - find out what charities she supports and remember your purchase goes towards donations.

Since many of her designs are influenced by a rustic European lifestyle, Genevieve says:
The rustic lifestyle reminds me to enjoy the simple moments and the serenity of my surroundings. It is a lifestyle that I sometimes yearn for in my hectic daily life. The joy of arranging a colorful bouquet, sipping my favorite tea, reading a book, taking a stroll in the countryside, or getting together with family and friends.
Whatever her inspiration, Genevieve loves working with fabric and you can tell by the gorgeous things in her shop.
Of course I love this.. can never have enough tote bags.
Be sure to visit Genevieve's shop often. There's always something 'new'.
And come join us in our sneak attack thread. Read Genevieve's story.

Each time we have a Sneak Attack, we challenge our members to see if they can figure out who the 'victims' will be, based on the clues provided by the host.
We have some very fine treasury creators, some new hands at it, some old, and each treasury is filled with the most wonderful new Etsy shops our creators have found. They may not have been the 'chosen' victims of the day, but each shop gets lots of exposure being in a treasury by having that treasury tweeted and posted on Facebook!
Now back to those images - notice anything interesting? The same images seem to be repeated a number of times for the month of March. Those are our Treasury Gurus. They tend to find at least one if not more of the 'victims' and as the creator of a 'winning' treasury, get to advertise their shop on the blog.
Our gurus from March 2015 are:
Theresa from KraftyGrannysHome
Virginia from madebyhand
Monika from TobisiasLilThing
Want to join these gals and learn how to do what they do? Just ask them - they will be delighted to 'share their secrets'!
