A reminiscence and exchange between Doodlebeacards, and laruefasions–once a victim herself, and now a dedicated member of TeamSNEAK:
Doodle: Seeing that this is an anniversary celebration, thought I would share about my first “official” sneak attack on a certain victim that is now one of the “sneaky sneakers”
I found the sneak attack threads for the first time 3-11-09 but didn’t stay long. Found the next one and joined in a little more. I found myself coming every time, found a great group of folks that were so warm and welcoming that I told myself I would come every chance I got.
On 4-10-09, I made my first sneak attack purchase. It was so exciting. My first experience at “cart wars” but I think we didn’t “war” as much back then.
This group has brought me out of my shell and now I think I’ve only missed one sneak attack. and I love hanging out in the off days because there is so much support.
Oh, by the way, my first sneak purchase was from:
larue – YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! and now she is a sneaky sneaker!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY SNEAK ATTACKS!!!!!
Larue: That night was a very surreal night. I came home from shopping, and turned on the net, and all these emails kept coming in and all these PayPal notices were coming in also. I thought, wow, Doug must have sold something… not ever thinking about me.
Then I started opening them, one after another, I sold an item! OMG!!! It is like hitting a brick wall, only emotionally!
Was someone pulling a joke, I had been on here quite some time, and nothing and now… I kept counting, how could this be? Finally, I read the First letter from PhippsArt. “You are being sneak attacked, and no, this is not a joke!” I just sat and shook my head.
So, after looking at the HandmadeMovement site, and then following the link, I found the thread where people were actually talking about my items. It wasn’t a joke! People were saying such nice things, and the emotions got even more messed up. Humility, gratitude, and not knowing how I picked to receive this blessing!
Wow! I think that is one of the most emotionally messed up moments of my life!
But that wasn’t the full blessing that God gave me. He gave me a wonderful bunch of people that are caring, loving, honest, and sincerely interested in helping each other. I have a second family on here.
And on top of all that, I get to participate in Sneak Attacking someone else two to three times a week! How great is that. Someone else gets to feel the way I did. Who can ask for more?
Don’t forget to come celebrate the Sneakerversary with us! There will be giveaway drawings at 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, and 6:00 PM EDT. Go to The Handmade Movement to enter. The party culminates at 7:00 with a Sneak Attack!
