I love the smell of Sneaking in the morning!

Hey, the Sneak Attack "hiatus" is over - we can be found here, and the Thursday April 29 Sneak Attack begins at 4 p.m. EDT. Be there or be square!

"What's that red?!" Treasury

My latest Treasury! It's a long story, involving a Canada goose (there may have been more than one) and my friends Kevin and Laurel.

The earrings by ShadesOfVictoria got me started... and you MUST click on the third photo of Joy's Textual Oddities cards to know what made me laugh out loud when the concept fully came together.

Woo hoo the BNR is going strong, and I'm having a sale!

I'm over in the Sneaky BNR today, and I just got the coolest necklace for my mom for Mother's Day. And some cards - the goodies are a-flowin'! Come on over!

Here are my sale terms for today: for each of the following "tasks" you choose to complete, you'll get 50 cents off your order in my shop:

1. Follow this blog (leave a comment here so I know you did). Existing followers, leave a comment and you get 50 cents off, too.

2. Heart the SNEAKteam shop.

3. Follow me on Twitter and tweet about your favorite item from my shop, including "@stockannette". (Existing followers - tweet about your favorite item from my shop, including "@stockannette".)

4. Follow the Sneak Attacks on Twitter and tweet about your favorite item in the shop, including "@Sneak_Attacks". (Existing followers - tweet about your favorite item in the shop, including "@Sneak_Attacks".)

5. Become my Facebook fan (or like, or fave or whatever) and leave a comment there so I know you did. (Existing fans, leave a comment!) You can even leave links to your Etsy shop in my 'Link Love' discussion!

6. Become a Facebook fan of the Handmade Movement and leave a comment there so I know you did. (Existing fans, leave a comment!)

So, each task above “earns” you 50 cents, which means if you do them all, you'll receive $3 off your next order in my shop. Do two things, and you get a dollar off, three and you get $1.50 off, etc.

Are you all into BNRs? I just recently discovered that "BNR" means "Buy and Replace" - which means that if you buy from someone on The List, your name replaces theirs on the list, thus hopefully prompting people to buy something from you, so their name replaces yours... and so on, and so on!

Anyway, our newest Sneaker, JavaJessPublishing, has coordinated the first-ever (as far as I know) Sneaky Cheap BNR... come by and check it out! Many of the people on The List are having sales and specials and stuff; it seems like it's going to be a lot of fun!

Hats off!

Well, I didn't win the Meerkat Giveaway, but I was chosen for a Treasury by glorioushats! After you visit my green baby hat with the big white flower in the Treasury, make sure to drop by and check out Jane's pink pillbox hat - talk about glorious!

If you're in the mood to show your clicky love, don't forget that you can vote for my Marigold Mini Book in the Etsy Gardening Voter!

'The Pacific'-inspired Treasury West

Here's my latest Treasury:

the HBO miniseries inspired it. It's given me some insight into the war my dad fought in - because, as I hear is typical of many Veterans, my dad did not talk to me about his time in the Pacific theater at all.

I just almost had a heart attack!

One of my mini-books is in the Etsy Voter! It's because of my fellow Sneaker, LaBeq. You remember, the one who made the kaleidoscope that we gave my brother-in-law for his birthday?

I would love to have you cast a vote for my li'l book, if you like it... and then stop by the Handmade Movement and find out how to enter to win a similar one!

Darling readers, I want you to win something I've made! There's a hitch - you've only got a chance to win if you ENTER! So, click here for instructions on how to enter the next Handmade Movement giveaway! The prize is a mini journal, and that's an antique seed packet label I've applied to the front! I think the flowers might be asters, but I don't really know, as the words are in French.Do you love it? I hope so!

In case you can't wait, I've made a similar one and
listed it in my shop:
I believe the flowers are marigolds. Again with the French. So who knows? They are yellow, which makes them fabulous, in any case!

Tune in tomorrow, too; you will not believe the cuteness I'm giving away in HappyHoundCreative's bloggy birthday bash!

Jiffy Hop says...

Happy Easter - buy chocolate, not bunnies. Please visit the other Annette's blog, too, if you have a moment.

Jiffy Hop is a wild rabbit that was born in our back yard in 2008. Thank goodness we have a big tall wooden fence - not just to protect Jiffy Hop and his brothers and sisters, but also to keep people seeing that we may or may not let the grass back there grow way too long (because I don't want a mower to hurt or disturb the bunnies).
