Here is a lovely treasury, titled "Aqua and Cream." I'm seeing a lot of these two colors. I think we'll see this combination continuing into Spring. This treasury was curated by casebycase. She makes beautiful handbags. I like the Ranger Tote. Cool and functional!
This treasury included my Harlequin Lantern.

Botanical Porcupine is a treasury curated by terraworks. The tagline is "lighten up your spirit." I was trying to nail down the feeling that this collection evokes. The tagline gets it pretty well. I had this feeling while watching my son play while the sun streamed in on a Sunday morning. I felt serene and happy, but utterly relaxed. It's like that...
My Faux Bois Fused Light Catcher was included.

This snow makes me want to photograph everything. I, of course, took many pictures of my son. I don't put those on the internet for obvious reasons. This struck me today, though, and I just had to photograph it. This is a ceramic face done by Mao Creations. I've had it for many years. It just looked so wonderful with snow on it. Please visit his MySpace page. I hope he revisits his Etsy shop!

I took my last packages of the Holiday Season to the Post Office at noon today. Boy, am I glad I went when I did. We're supposed to get a foot of snow. I don't know how much we have now, but I know I won't be driving anywhere tomorrow. My son is so excited. He's been playing on his sled (in the house) all night. Tomorrow we'll play in the snow as much as we can! I remember snowy days as almost magical as a child. I'm so happy for him when I see him enjoy it.
My first Holiday on Etsy was more successful than I ever could have imagined. I did more than 200 sales in 2 months. Many of the sales were for multiple items. I started selling in January of this year. When I add up the individual items, I'm right on for my goal of averaging an item sold each day. Now I need to crunch numbers to come up with 2010's goal...

I had a feeling about this treasury! Strawberries and Ice, which I blogged about yesterday, made Etsy's Front Page! It was at 3 am, so of course I slept through it. Congratulations to outofthepinksky, who curated this collection and to all of the other artists who were featured! The picture is of my Harlequin Lantern, which was featured.

Strawberries and Ice is IMO one of the best Treasuries I've been in. It is definitely worthy of the Front Page and very timely. I'll keep my fingers crossed! Red and aqua are the colors that I chose to "decorate" my shop with the Holidays, so of course I love it! It includes my Harlequin Lantern. Please enjoy the collection and check out outofthepinksky's (curator) fabulous jewelry, especially the clever Nesting Earrings!
