Catching Up On Some Treasury Features

I try to blog the Etsy treasuries I am lucky enough to be featured in, and link back to the curator's shop to thank them for including me.

It is difficult to get noticed at Etsy, and the Treasuries are a very important way to do that; and I am always amazed that people find me and want to include me, when there are literally tens of thousands of folks trying to get noticed as well. Most of the time, they are people I don't even know, and I am honored they choose me.

I am ashamed to say that I have been so busy with the day job the past two weeks that I have not done a very good job thanking these nice people who included me in their treasuries, and I would like to remedy that today. So bear with me, please, while I give some much overdue thanks! Your eyes will feast on all the beautiful items included. You could definitely fill a wish list, or your holiday gift list, just by visiting these shops, so have a great time looking!

Lori of FabricatedFamily included my Turquoise and Copper Cylinder Focal Beads in her Etsy treasury Titled "A Little Dog Told Me", which has nothing to do with dogs and everything to do with gorgeous coppery, coral and turquoise vertigris lusciousness!

Linda of clickdecourcyNI included my Cayenne Red Double-Sided Pebble Textured Beads in her Etsy treasury, titled "Pebble...". I fell in love with several of the items she included in this treasury. It's such a soothing treasury.

My cayenne beads are really popular! They were also featured, along with my Cranberry Carte Postale Pendant, in an All-PCAGOE member treasury created by new member Penny of PennysLane, titled "Seeing Red." I love this treasury, but then, everyone knows Red is my favorite color.

PCAGOE member Deb of RenGalSA created an all-PCAGOE member treasury to promote our July challenge and titled it "Faux". She included my Faux Turquoise Topped Antique Copper Textured Orphan Focal Bead (what a mouthful!). I am honored to be included with all the awesomely talented people in our guild!

This treasury created by Sweet2BLiving, which she titled "Orient to the Keepsakes", is one of the prettiest treasuries I have seen at Etsy in a long time. Of course, I'm a huge fan of the Asian theme, and use it as much as possible in my own work, so that may be one reason it appeals to me so much. I'm so happy my Black Capped Antique Gold Koi Fish Focal Beads are included.

Now for a fun, happy, and irresistible treasury created by Nancy of BytheBead, which she titled "Spots and Squiggles and Dots, Oh My!". Nancy included my Chartreuse Textured Focal Beads.

Sadly, this glorious "Summer Morning" Treasury created by Gloria of GloriaKirk has already expired, but I wanted to include it here anyway. Gloria included my Gold Mica Shift Double-Stamped Pebbled Swirls on Black Pendant. It was such a beautiful treasury, and many of the items are still available.

Betsy of BetsyBenson included my Majestic Butterfly pendant in her "Beautiful Vision" Treasury Thursday. That little butterfly pendant has been featured in more Etsy treasuries than any of my other work. It's very popular!

Whew! All caught up and I just received an email from Robin J. of DevineDepth that she featured my Faux Jade Gingko Leaf Cylinder Focal Beads in her new Etsy treasury today, "What Exactly is Polymer Clay?" And what a special treasury it is!

I love it when artists who do not normally use polymer clay to create showcase it in a serious and positive manner. Polymer gets such a bad rap sometimes. It suffers from a stereotype that it is something kids play with, which infuriates me. So, I was thrilled when I went to see Robin's treasury and found that it included some of the best polymer clay artists around, some of my pc heroes and even a few friends among them! Thank you so much, Robin. You have truly made my day!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who featured me in the past two weeks. I cannot really express how much it means to me. Many happy blessings on you all!
