Handmade by Sandi

Firstly, you may wish to know that May 3rd is Sandi's birthday, AND that she is having a birthday bash in one of her etsy shops!  More of that later!  
Sandi works with fabrics and yarns.  "I love the feel of soft yarn, when I am working with it, as well as wearing a finished item - makes me feel hugged, and you will too - when you try one of my scarves or hats."  
She learned to crochet from her mom many years ago ("too many to count").  Sandi loves making crocheted items for her family and friends.  "In 2006, after starting chemo treatment for breast cancer, I crocheted myself little hats and skull caps to keep my head warm - even in bed!  With the completion of my treatment, and my energy level coming back - I decided to pay it forward, by crocheting hats for other cancer patients. What a wonderful feeling to give back for all the help I received!"  

Sandi has 2 etsy shops:
Handmade By Sandi  yes, this is the one in which she is having the birthday bash!
Sandi's Stash, a shop for fabrics and blank T shirts 
Be sure to check out Sandi's BLOG as well.  See her enormous garden HERE 
Find out that Sandi belongs to etsy's Sneak Attack Team which sounds like lots of fun!  See their blog and find out more HERE.  Yes, you, too, can participate in the fun without even joining the team!
Sandi is the etsy bloggers' blogger for the month of May.
