Back in December, I introduced you to Theresa of KraftyGrannysHome.etsy.com. I had gotten some inkjet printable fabric and asked her to use one of my prints in a quilt and she made these wonderful pieces!

Since that time, Theresa has done a few more pieces using some of my prints and they have all come out gorgeous! She has a tremendous eye for color and fabric coordination! You'll see what I mean when you visit her shop and see all of her other wonderful work.

She used my Ballerina In Red Dress for this Dance Tote!

And my I'm A Little Teapot for this Pillow Cover!

I recently asked Theresa to use one of my winter scenes, Looking Down Harlingen Road, to make a pillow cover for my sister's birthday. I sent her the print, she chose what fabric to go with it and this is the fabulous result!

My sister is going to be thrilled! She loves country scenes!

Today the Etsy HandmadeMovement Team: Home of the SNEAK ATTACK crossed the 6,000 mark in sales for SNEAK ATTACKED shops! 

SNEAK ATTACKS on new Etsy shops or Etsy shops with less than 6 sales have been going on since September 24, 2008. Michael Phipps, of phippsart.etsy.com originated the Sneak Attack idea after he received his first sale in his Etsy shop. He was so excited, that he wanted to share the feeling of that first sale with others, and so the idea for Sneak Attacks was born. We have been SNEAKING up on shops since then! To date there have been 355 SNEAK ATTACKS on 907 shops resulting in a total of 6013 Sales for those shops!

Like all Etsy Teams, there have been ups and downs along the way and although Michael no longer has the time, due to his regular work schedule, the team has stuck together and has a great group of people who are not only willing to help the "victim" shops but each other. This group is also willing to try new ways to get more recognition for their cause of getting as many sales for new or struggling shops as possible. Their main goal is to promote these "victim" shops rather than themselves and by paying it forward in this way, get a great deal of satisfaction from helping others.
You can get that same kind of satisfaction by supporting their efforts by spreading the word about their work, and if possible stopping by to make a purchase during a SNEAK ATTACK.  It's not necessary to join the team to make a purchase, a convo to the sponsor telling them of your purchase would be great.

I am proud to be the Captain of this Team of wonderful, selfless people!


Sneakers Notorious on Etsy for Attacking with Kindness!
By encouraging new and undiscovered Etsy artisans!

What is a Sneak Attack?
It's a way to support independent artisans who are trying to sell their wares online. Two days a week at an appointed time, an Etsy shop with few or no sales is announced. As many people as possible then buy items from that shop, resulting in a frenzy of surprise business to the unsuspecting shop!
Even if you can't make a purchase, you can still help by marking their shops or items as favorites, adding them to your circle and spreading the word. If you see something a friend or family member might like, ask them to view the shop. We welcome anyone to come in and join us with the chatter and fun!

From the Handmademovement Team
(Sneak Attacks)

... we're asking you to help someone... but this time it's not a new Etsy shop owner. Please consider making two quick clicks to help a little member of our extended Sneaker family win a new wheelchair. Click here and then "like" the photo of Jorden, who is actually related to our dear friend LaRue. Here's a picture of Jorden decked out in Fourth of July finery, and some details she gave us are below.

"This is Jorden, my cousin's son. I have asked for prayers for him previously, as he has many health issues. Convaid is giving away a new wheelchair to the child with the most 'likes' [in their Facebook contest]. Jorden is outgrowing his current chair, and the new chair would allow him access to areas that he can not get to conveniently now. Please click on the 'like' button associated with Jorden's photo. A comment would also be helpful."

If for some reason the link above is not working for you, you can also access it through the Handmade Movement's Facebook page - it's our most recent status update. Thank you very kindly; it means a lot to us that our "Etsy Family" is so willing to help people - in so many ways.
