My name is Wendy Limauge. I own the public sweepstakes directory Sweeties Sweeps and the member-only sweepstakes directory, Sweeties Secret Sweeps. Sweeties Swag is my personal website where I sell some of the crafts I make and I sell some of my “favorites things”. Yes, you could say I’m Oprah’s twin lol
My Crafty Story
Before I was “Sweetie” I got married and raised 3 sons. I sewed, quilted, taught quilting classes (for 7 years), painted, crocheted and dabbled in just about any other craft imaginable. That was all before the Internet was even around so all I had for inspiration were books in the library. Once my boys grew up I put my crafting on the shelf and everything lay dormant for probably 8 years while I grew my sweepstakes websites. Now I have 3 grand daughters who have given me inspiration to bring back my love of crafting. I sew, crochet, make fun things out of wood with my husband Greg, garden, use my Cricut Explore, paint and anything else that sparks my interest.
I have always enjoyed teaching whatever I know about anything whether it be how to “win what you can’t afford” by entering sweepstakes, how to troubleshoot a computer (yes, I was even The Computer Lady a million years ago), and now I even write DIY instructions on my craft website, Coastal Creators, for the fun projects my husband and I create together.

Some Things I Sell
Face Masks: When the Coronavirus pandemic took hold, I joined the Mask Makers of Connecticut Facebook Group and became a “Maskateer”. I started sewing masks and donating them to healthcare workers like my daughter-in-law who is an ER nurse for our local hospital. I made masks for her entire department. I am still sewing and donating to those in need. I also sell them to earn a little money so I can keep replenishing my fabric stock and pay for my crafting hobbies. Each of the face masks I sell are made out of 100% cotton fabric and feature adjustable ear loops with bead adjusters.
BUY A MASK, GIVE A MASK! For every mask purchased, I will donate a mask to a healthcare, frontline, or essential worker in need. Do you work for an organization in need of masks? Check out the Donations page for details.
Check back as I will be adding more things in the near future.
