Motivation TEMPTation Treasuries March 13,2016 - March 19,2016

I have mentioned before, that I am a leader for TEMPT Team on Etsy.  This is a great group of people who work hard to promote each other.  One of my favorite games, is Motivation TEMPTation.  Each week, the winning shop from the previous week chooses an item from their shop to be the "Motivation" item for the next week.  Team members then create collections, or treasuries featuring that item.  At the end of the week, the previous week's winner has to choose the winning treasury.

Last week, the featured item was a really neat vintage pipe from More The Buckles.  They chose my treasury, "Rustic / Wood Finds" as the winner.  So since St. Patrick's Day is Thursday, I chose this pair of wooden earrings.  They are made from recycled wood, and I love the glittery emerald paint.

Lime and Emerald Earrings from Feath and Kee

There were so many beautiful treasuries to choose from!  Scroll down to check them out and to see the winning treasury!

"Green With Envy" By Pat from Quail Hollow Creations.

"Going Green!" by Liz from The Little Empty Nest.

"Being Green" by Francie from Insideredo.

And the winner is.....

"Going Green" by Anna from Made In The City.

It was a really tough choice!  Thank you to everyone who made a motivation treasury for us!!

See you tomorrow for How to Wear it Wednesday!

How to Wear it Wednesday 3.16.2016
