One of My Treasuries on Etsy

Okay for those of you who don't know what a treasury is I am going to show you one of mine. I love making these, they are highly addictive and there is a great deal of competition among fellow etsians to secure a spot when they become available. This is how it works. When the list drops below 333 (don't know why they picked that particular number but that is what it is.) So if you are lucky enough to get the little title box and get your title name in it before they are all grabbed you then get to make a treasury.
TIP - copy your title from Word so all you have to do is paste. This increases your chances exponentially. You then get to design a theme and go thru all of the lovely shops on etsy to choose your photos for your treasury. It is considered bad form by many to put your own item(s) in a treasury. It is meant to showcase other artists. As you can see from this screen shot I have chosen a theme of Black and Sunset. Of course your theme can be anything you want and does not have to be based on color. To see more treasuries go to and click on the treasury link on the left side of the page. Have fun! But be careful they are highly addictive.
