It's always fun to find out what interests our hosts. Debbie recently told me: I bought some air dry clay. I have a friend who has a kiln and we have had clay play days.
Sometimes just going off in another creative direction can spark ideas for our crafts!
As you know I love to check out the shops of our hosts. And Debbie's shop always has something new. Recently I found some fun items to share with you.
Come join us in our Sneak Attack thread to meet our members and try to guess who the 'victims' will be.

About being retired : I've been retired for the last five years. I started out my working life as a registered nurse and ended as a high school teacher. Lots of good experiences as both but it is nice now to enjoy being out of the rat race. So she has lots of time to create!

Whenever one of our members hosts a Sneak Attack - I try to find out where their creativity comes from. Says Debbie:
I come from a family of talented artists through my father, an uncle and an aunt, their father and his father before that, I am blessed to have inherited some of their talent and was privileged to be able to watch and learn from my father who did pencil and ink drawings and later made many musical instruments and my favorite aunt who painted beautiful art using the mediums of pencil, ink, watercolor, oils and pastels, she taught me many things about the mechanics of creating a painting and bringing life to a portrait. My father and aunt both had a love and respect for nature and all life and this was instilled in me as well.
I love to browse Debbie's shop - take a look at my favorites.

I used to do a lot of sewing and I'm delighted with the quality of Genevieve's work. The range of fabrics, designs, and creative ideas makes her shop an excellent place to view and buy a items that will delight everyone.
I asked Genevieve if there was some new direction that she may be thinking about:
For next year, I am currently working on a new design for the travel pouch/crossbody bag collection incorporating two different styles of material.
I am looking forward to the new collection and material!

I mentioned a while ago that Debbie found a lot of her items in the upstairs attic of an old barn/workshop on a property she purchased a few years ago. I asked Debbie to go into a little more detail - as her finds are wonderful.
An interesting thing about the things I sell in this shop is that most were found in the attic. The man who owned the property before me (Mr. Powell) was a teacher and he kept all sorts of things from school lessons and tests and books, very interesting things that I haven't listed yet too. Although, we have the last name we weren't related. I heard he was a very beloved teacher and quite a character, he used to sell the items at flea markets and such, I often wonder what he would think about them being in an online flea market today. I think he would be happy people still enjoy them.
Some of the interesting and USA items -
Be sure to check out Debbie's shop for a variety of items she found in the attic!
And come join us in our sneak attack thread - for lots of fun!

I recently asked Debbie to tell us a little about what is going on in her life. I was delighted to hear that she loves to garden - we do too.
My creativity lately has been in the kitchen and finding ways to use up all my garden yummies. I enjoy cooking and baking and get lots of compliments on the things I make, a recent favorite is a zucchini and heirloom tomato galette.
Galette is a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat round or freeform crusty cakes, or, in the case of a Breton galette, a pancake made with buckwheat flour usually with a savory filling.
This is an example of a galette - you will have to ask Debbie for her recipe - so yummy looking
And come join us in our Sneak Attack thread for lots of fun.

As one of our newest hosts, I asked Kaye what prompted her to join our team. She said:
I was the 'victim' of a Sneak Attack a few years ago and it gave my little shop the kick start that it needed. Since then, I've enjoyed participating in the SAs and seeing all the wonderful things that the team members make. (Kaye's shop was attacked in August of 2014.)
I love browsing the shops of our hosts - and our other members as well. One of the things I love about Kaye's creations is that she makes quilled cards and gift tags.

Summer hosted her 1st attack in 2011. Just prior to that, I asked her what prompted her to join our team.
I was sneak attacked back in July (2010) (on my birthday!) by Yarn2Yarn. That's how I found you guys.
It's always fun to see the creations in Summer's shop. I have many of her earrings, and other items - like these...

Ever wonder how a shop got it's name? Here's Theresa's answer...
The name was tough I knew I like being crafty, so I went with a "K" instead of the "C" - Granny just because that is want I am, and Home because that is where the Heart is.
And she is indeed Krafty!! Theresa loves to try new patterns -
Lots of wonderful creations in Theresa's shop - feel free to browse.
Come join us in our sneak attack thread - there's fun for all!

While Sandi has been hosting for a long time, she wants you to know how easy it is to find new shops that can use a little boost, host a sneak attack, and have lots of fun at the same time.
We have a lot of members in our Handmade Movement team, many of whom have hosted sneak attacks in the past. Others help finding shops, co-host, and help the team as well. Not everyone can host - but for those who can, it's very rewarding.
Want to know more about how you can host a sneak attack? Check out this link. Of course if you have questions we are always here to help.
Come join us in our Sneak Attack thread today - to meet many of our members, and have fun greeting our 'victims' at 2pm today.

Andrea has been a member for quite awhile and Leslie is a brand new member - always love when a new member pairs up with a 'veteran' to help new Etsy shops.
A bit about Andrea:
I have been sewing since I was 16. I started out wanting to be able to make clothes for myself, then discovered it is more fun to make clothes for other people! I make jean skirts and swim "board" skirts out of pre-loved jeans and swim trunks.
I discovered an interest in clay with a pottery class I took in Jr. High School. It was just basic hand building techniques, like slab and coil work, but it was enough to plant a seed. The first time I had access to a pottery wheel, I was in High School. After my very first session on the potter's wheel, I was hooked!
