Treasuries really work!

Very reasonably prices, free shipping and so many beautiful and fun fabrics it was hard to choose!

Today I was in a treasury that included this adorable little item from Bitsnpiecesetc. I hardly ever buy anything for myself, but I fell in love with it and ordered two - one for me and one for Connor's teacher. I thought it would make a perfect little end-of-the-year gift for her, with a gift card tucked in the pocket. (although, seriously, what better gift could she possibly get than the fact that it is the end of the year?)

I love Etsy treasuries. I used to make them all the time. I loved the challenge of coming up with a theme and a fabulous name to match, of finding just those few perfect items among thousands, the fun of sending out sweet little notes to all the sellers included. It was quite a creative outlet.

Yes, I do realize that my entire life is a creative outlet, but this was an outlet from my outlet.

Anyway, I don't have the time to spend on treasuries anymore, but I still love being included in them. Not for marketing purposes or to try and make sales, but because it gives me an opportunity to be exposed to different artists and crafts people's creations. Creations that I probably wouldn't otherwise find on my own as I stumble around, clueless about searching tags, what's hot, what's trending, etc....

That's why I love treasuries - it's not about the clicks, it's about meeting fellow artists. I often find new favorite shops or artists to write about this way. Congratulations on your find!

Isn't it? I thought I'd replace the lined paper with blank and use it as a mini-sketchbook.
