Treasured Thursday - Thirtieth Edition

Hello Thursday!

This week is not only brings us the Thirtieth Treasured Thursday, the last Treasured Thursday until Christmas, but Feath & Kee were chosen for the inspiration treasury challenge for the Ingenuity Team.

A little background here....for those of you who do not know, a treasury is a collection created by an Etsy member of items from different shops on Etsy.  So when you see those great items on the front page of Etsy, this is were they come from.  For every treasury that you see on the front page of Etsy, there are 17 people out there who are over the moon because they have made the front page of Etsy.  This explained, I am a member of a promotions team on Etsy, The Ingenuity Team.  One of the on going games that we have right now, is the Inspiration Challenge.  Every week, the person who created the winning treasury the week before, gets to either pick an item from their shop, or an item from another team member's shop to be that week's inspiration item.  Then, everyone creates treasuries with this item as the inspiration.  This is a lot of fun by the way!  You can check out my winning treasury from last week here.

The item that I chose from the shop, is a pair of earrings made from wood scraps in the shop.

So far, these earrings have been featured in two Inspiration Challenge treasuries.  Christmas by Diane from Muddy Waters Ceramic Creations, and Christmas by Jane from Ok Bridal.

Featured Fridays?!?!

I believe that I have made it clear that one of the things that I love about being a seller on Etsy, is the interaction and support network.  I have found a great group of friends that no matter our age or background, we are all in the same boat.  Today, I am going to introduce you to one of these people. 

Kitty Stoykovich is a fellow Ingenuity Team member.  Based out of Concord New Hampshire, Kitty Stoykovich Design as been open on Etsy since 2009.  Kitty's work displays an elegant simplicity that caught my eye right off the bat when I first began making Etsy treasuries.

I would love to make this regular thing "Featured Friday"  we will see... Now, head over to the Ingenuity Team blog and check out my Friday Finds!
