What is a Sneak Attack? Here is what the Handmademovement.com website has to say:
What's a Sneak Attack? Every weekday at an appointed time, an Etsy shop with few or no sales is announce on this site. As many people as possible then buy items from that shop, resulting in a frenzy of surprise business to the unsuspecting shop! Want to join in? I bet you do! Read on...
Below is the current Sneak Attack schedule. To participate, show up on this site at or soon after the time of the next attack and you'll see the chosen shop name. Then go to that shop and purchase an item, making sure to include the words "Sneak Attack" in the "message to seller". The shop owner will also be informed of what is happening so they know just what is going on. Think you're too late for today's attack? Wrong! If the shop name is still up below, please go and make a purchase!
There is always a corresponding thread in the Etc. section of the Etsy forums to go along with the current Sneak Attack, click HERE to go visit the current one, for today, Monday. Please go take a few moments to go check it out or bookmark it for later.....it's a fun, positive, and SNEAKY thing to do! :)

I recently read about shophandmade.com, and I was pretty impressed with what I saw. I really like that the sponsors are paper crafting or rubber stamping online websites. Paper is what I love. It's what I DIG. So LRC built another cute little red cottage on the next block over. The website is still in beta mode.....I am hoping there will be forums? a way for customers to contact me? a way for other sellers to contact me?
It's good to have your eggs in more than one basket. Or...maybe have TWO baskets.... ;)
I've added a clickable blinkie down on the right-hand side there, it will take you to my newly acquired little piece of real estate over on shophandmade.com ....feel free to click on it and look around...whew....another something to keep track of. :)

Just listed this SPOOKY HALLOWEEN MINI ALBUM at Little Red Cottage this afternoon......what a wonderful way to keep all those Halloween photos together....this is a not-so-mini album, it's a 8" x 8"...and full of plenty of room for those snapshots of pirates, monsters, gory guys, and fairy-tale princesses!

.........did you do anything fun? creative? did you get to sleep in?
I did all three!
My weekend started with scrapping and creating with my good friends at Pink Pineapple Scrapbooks, my favorite scrapbook store ever.....here is a layout that Terri created to display in the store....she asked me to create some Garden Goodies , or paper posies for her layout....so I obliged her! You can see them in action in her layout, "Cute Friends".
Saturday.....we headed down to MCAS Miramar to watch the Air Show ....we met my sister and her family down there, and had a great time watching all the awesome airplanes and jets........the Blue Angels and Fat Albert were mind blowing! We plowed through bags of kettle corn, and walked it all off by walking instead of taking the shuttle bus back to the parking lot! Go us!
I slept in this morning. Way in. Caught up on some badly needed REM sleep with some really crazy dreams. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.....
