Since it is the 4th of July week and because the following week (July 9-16 or so) Andrea has a big work project that she has to concentrate on, Andrea and I thought it would be fun to post the list of all the shops that have been Sneaked upon this year so far and let you all promote them as you have time.

Here's the list:

Mar 1, 2018 – July 2, 2018

Meet Andrea

Andrea from CunninglyCrafted is hosting our weekend sneak attack starting today at 11am. She has hosted before and I always like to find out more about our members.

I asked Andrea what prompted her to create an Etsy shop and her answer was:

I like making cards, and I needed a little extra income. I had heard of Etsy, so I checked it out! My first shop was actually focused on little girl's clothes...but I decided I would rather have a card shop!

And now I see that Andrea has gotten back into making little girl's clothes - so cute. I love the way she recycles things - such as this comes from swim trunks!

Be sure to check out all the creations in Andrea's shop!

And come join us in our Sneak Attack thread to see what's going on....

Meet Charlie

Charlie from TearfulTenshi is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm Etsy time. One of our international members, Charlie has a knack for finding very creative and cute new Etsy shops to introduce to the team.

Did you know that Charlie's shop was sneak attacked? I love it when a 'victim' decides to join our team, and help other shops! Here's what Charlie said about her being attacked:

I joined the Handmade Movement, just after being a victim to the infamous Sneak Attack. I was out at the Korean Cultural Centre 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. 

I was browsing in Charlie's shop this morning and found this cute birthday card!! I know just who to send it to...

Lots of cards and other creations for you in Charlie's shop! Have fun browsing.

And come join us in our sneak attack thread today - can you guess who the 'victims' will be?

Meet Stefano

A very new member of The Handmade Movement Team, Stefano Meo of MeoLeathercraft is our 3 pm Sneak Attack host today. Stefano is in Italy and creates artfully crafted leather accessories, bags, LARP props and other wonderful items from genuine Tuscan leather.

When asked how he came to join the Handmade Movement team Stefano said:
“I started to be an active member of Etsy only in November 2015 and so I started to browse all around forums and teams. One day I found Sneak Attacks Team and I read some discussions. Then I found a lot of good people that were not talking like someone that wanted to sell, but only like friends and good people that want to help. It is like be in someone's house, having dinner and chatting with the family. I'm happy to be part of this team now and I really like the work that is done here to help people from all over the world!”

Here is one example of the finely detailed, imaginative things Stefano makes.


Stefano also does custom work and says “If you have a wish, an idea, please write to me because I can create something unique for you!” Stop by his shop and have a look around and don’t forget to join us today at 3 pm as he hosts our fun filled Sneak Attack on some unsuspecting new etsy shops!
