Monday Pick-Me-Up: Creative Window Shopping
Etsy, the e-destination for all things handmade and vintage, allows both shoppers and sellers to create Treasuries, curated lists of some of their favorite finds. As a seller it is a big thrill to find you've been included in one, but I just discovered that making them can be fun too.

You can build a treasury around whatever your imagination can dream up. I created "Olive and Wine PCAGOE Wishlist" to promote members of the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy. I searched our members stores for items in the wine and olive color scheme. Then I arranged the pieces to try to bring some balance to the design.
Friends or Strangers
Sometimes you're lucky enough to be featured in a "stranger's treasury." You get in a stranger's treasury when your item tags match the theme someone is creating. "For the Love of Handbags" is a treasury I created by searching for images of woman and purses.

Mosey on over to Esty
If your Monday is off to a dreary start, may I suggest a visit to Esty treasury land. You can spend some time pursuing some inspiring collections, or if you are feeling ambitious, you can create your own.
