Treasury Fun

Have you ever created a mood board?


A collection of images, textures, swatches, words and anything else that helps to create a 'mood' based on a theme, or for inspiration, when you are designing.  I enjoy creating mood boards when ideas pop into my head for a new creation, or a new collection.  They help keep me on track, because I have been known to lose my way and start travelling along a different path... ;-)


I have recently discovered how much fun it can be to create an Etsy treasury...it's just like creating a mood board, and just as much fun.

On The Spice Trail

**Update - 'On The Spice Trail' made the front page of Etsy....wooooo!**


Every now and then, it is nice to take a step back from working on my own creations, and appreciate what other talented artisans are creating.  There is a wealth of beautiful, handcrafted goodies on Etsy, and in the not-too-distant future, my own creations will be available there too.


If there is one thing that I have learnt from compiling these treasuries, it is that quality photographs are essential!


Thanks for looking, and be well!

  3. Rachel, you are SO welcome! I am almost beside myself with excitement that my little treasury made the FP of Etsy :-)) I hope that the exposure brings lots of clicks (and sales!) your way, love your work! ;-)

    Thanks so much, Debbie! It is so much fun to create these treasuries, and I have a new appreciation for the many talented artisans out there :-) And it makes me very excited to get my own creations up for sale there, because it is such a dynamic, supportive community!
