Treasuries!

I have a treasury ready to go, but I can't seem to catch one! What's a treasury? A treasury is a way of showcasing other artisans whose work you appreciate. It provides a way for Etsy community members to support each other. However, the trick is that you have to "snag" an empty treasury when the treasuries reach a certain low threshhold... and I haven't been able to do that for a while!

Nevertheless, some wonderful friends have featured my work on their treasuries. Please take a look at these! I think they'll give you great gift ideas:

Purple and Orange by Glassnwood from the Coastal Bend of Texas

I Love Flowers by JillsTreasureChest from Mississippi

Strawberry Honey by LittleBayClay from Texas

Pottery, Wood and Lace by RSSDesignsinFiber from Southern California

Hurry up and check these out before they expire! And also look at the beautiful work of these curators. See Glassnwood's handmade stained glass and woodcarvings, like this Ferruginous Pygmy Owl carving. And check out this Farmer Santa from JillsTreasureChest.

LittleBayClay is on vacation so her shop is currently closed (and, sadly, I can't pick an item to show you), but make sure to check out her pottery made with heart and imagination when her shop reopens on January 5. Last, but certainly not least, RSSDesignsinFiber has beautiful home decor and gift items, including this gorgeous and ecofriendly gift bag that's absolutely perfect for the holidays.

That's great. Some nice treasuries with your work. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment about Cheyenne. She's a good friend.

I wish I knew more about treasuries. You'll have to teach me. How do you know if your work appears in one? And I really don't get the snagging thing!

What a wonderful article. You're right about it being hard to catch a treasury!!
Thank you so much for showing my treasury and my Farmer Santa!!

Thanks for showing my little Poinsettia bag!! Yes, it takes a bit of perserverance and patience and preparedness to get a Treasury - you have to figure out when it will open and then be ready with a Title at the minute it opens on your computer because others are waiting to grab a Treasury, too!! But they are fun to do and very satisfying to get on ETSY!!
