This Is What An Oil-Soaked Ocean Wave Looks Like...

Click here.

That is why we are raising money by shopping for handmade and vintage items at HelpTheGulfCoast

The link you've been waiting for!

Here is the link to today's Sneak Attack discussion thread. Please come by, say hi, and help us keep it up at the top of the Etsy forums, in the hope of attracting even more new people to participate!

It's gonna be a good one - I really mean it!

Monday Monday Monday!

... we'll sell you the whole seat, but you'll only need the eddddge!

Sorry, a monster truck rally commercial just overtook me!

Hey, I am sponsoring Monday's Sneak Attack on Etsy (read more about what that means here) and I would love love love for you to participate (which means check The Handmade Movement at or after 7 p.m. Eastern time for the name of the lucky "victim" shop, then heart and cart at will). You really really reallllly don't want to miss this one. I swear.

About the start time: we operate on "Etsy time" - which means it starts at 7 p.m. East Coast time, since Etsy is based in New York. For you international shoppers (and yes, the victim ships worldwide, so you can play, too!), we are GMT-5:00... I hope that makes sense.

Even if you cannot participate, you can help this whole wingding be a smashing success by spreading the word via your own blog, twitter, facebook, etc. The Handmade Movement and I can both be found on those special social networking venues:

Stockannette on twitter and facebook
The HM on twitter and facebook

Want an email reminder, written by yours truly, on Sneak Attack days? Send me an email and I will be happy to comply!

Thanks - I am thankful to be a part of such a community effort, and
I appreciate your help!

Overheard in the Forums

That's the title of the new feature I'm doing on the Handmade Movement blog. Basically, I'm compiling quotes that happen during one of my favorite parts of the Sneak Attacks: when the lucky "victims" stop by our discussion thread all freaked out with excitement! Almost as exciting as that first sale (remember it? or are you still waiting for it? come hang out with us and let good karma take effect) is the super-cool custom logo that fellow Sneaker, Joy designed for me to use along with my Overheard in the Forums posts. Cool, huh? Yes, that's me there on the left - how did Joy know I have a yellow bracelet just like that?!
