The Handmade Movement Team on Etsy has accomplished several milestones since
October 1, 2011 when we began our new blog and new Team format! Our latest being that we have SNEAK ATTACKED more than 1500 ETSY SHOPS since the inception of Sneak Attacks on September 24, 2008! We set this goal this summer and the Team worked diligently to reach that goal. Thank you all and all of our SPONSORS for making this possible! This is truly the

Here are other milestones that have been accomplished by our Team.

• On June 20, 2013 we reach 8,000 SALES now we are at 8463 SALES!

• In May, 2013, Kelly of juBEADlations and Amanda of CuteNCurlyBowtique, started an article in   the blog called Blast From The Sneak Attack Past! They revisit shops that have been attacked in the past to see how they are doing since then and how the Sneak Attack affected their shops. It is a very popular article and they do a fantastic job!

• On Cyber Monday, November 26, 2012, the TEAM made RECORD BREAKING 

I am extremely proud to be the Captain of this wonderful Team of caring and giving people! I know that we will accomplish more great Milestones in the coming New Year!

Meet Lynn

Lynn from LynnHanousekDesigns is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 2pm.

Lynn has been on hiatus for awhile and has come back to sponsor one of our last sneak attacks for 2013!

Recently reopening her shop - I went to browse to see all the goodies I could find.

I love the little ACEO cards that Lynn has made in the past. And because I love all the cats that Lynn creates - here are a few of the ACEO cards that I have. Perhaps Lynn will start creating them again.

While Lynn doesn't have any of these ACEO cards available - take a look at the gorgeous creations she does have! 

Be sure to join us in our sneak attack thread, as we get ready find out who our 'victims' will be!

Meet Annette

Annette from Stockannette is sponsoring our Sneak Attack today at 2pm.

A long time member, it has been quite awhile since Annette sponsored. And we are so glad she's taking the reins again today - as we get closer and closer to the holidays!

Awhile back, Annette decided to try her hand at spinning yarn. I thought it would be a neat idea as well. Mine didn't work out, but Annette has developed the knack for it! And I have a number of pieces of handspun yarn from her shop. It's to die for!

Like these:

Take a peak at Annette's shop - she is always spinning her way through the day! And sometimes the night too - if I know her :D

And come join us in our sneak attack thread to find out who our latest 'victims' will be!

Meet Amanda

Amanda from CuteNCurlyBowtique is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 2pm.

A frequent sponsor - Amanda always finds the most creative new Etsy shops for us to surprise.

The holidays are quickly approaching,  but Amanda still finds time to create new hair bows. Each one cuter that the one before. While I was browsing through Amanda's shop - I found that I couldn't come up with just one to show you. So here is a few of my favorites.

OK - you get the idea - and there are so many more to choose from - be sure to browse for as long as you would like. Oh and btw - Amanda is having a super sale today.

Be sure to check in with us in our Sneak Attack thread to find out who might be Amanda's victims.
