Treasury Thanks

It's been a hectic week (in a good way)!  I spent all day Saturday, December 8, at the Crestwood Craft Fair, which was well-attended.  I set a new craft fair sales record.  My neighbor was a fellow Etsian, Sibyl from Gypsy Dove.  Her crocheted items are incredible!  Every time I made a sale, she would slide her chair over and say, "So, how's it going, Moneybags?"  And when I came home and checked my Etsy shop, I had four new orders.

I do believe my increase in sales is due to more than uncommonly good luck.  The exposure I gain when items from my shop are featured in treasuries helps my shop from being lost in the crowd, and gets my products "out there" for prospective Etsy shoppers to see.  So I am VERY grateful to the Etsy curators who have featured my items.  So to this week's curators, THANK YOU!!

Judy of JNOriginals featured my music and roses table runner in her treasury, Fibers and fabric and felt, oh my!   JNOriginals specializes in crocheted and felted personal accessories, like these wonderful fingerless texting gloves: 

Judy also featured my bright flatware on white oven mitts in her tresaury, Home for the Holidays.  Wouldn't these pretty spa cloths be a wonderful gift?

Artful Rising featured my red and white chevron oven mitts in her holiday-themed treasury, Candy Cane Spirit.  The Artful Rising shop features wonderful handmade journals.  During this hectic season, this journal provides a daily reminder:

Bonnie Sernesky of BonniesSewCrazy featured my yellow chevron bib in her treasury, I Miss the Sun!  Bonnie's shop has wonderful sewn items, like this pretty and practical paisley shoulder bag.

Bestknitting from Ankara, Turkey, featured my red and white chevron oven mitts in her treasury, Red and White Gifts.  This beautiful ivory shawl (over five feet wide), would be a warm and snuggly wrap on a cold winter night:

Mandy of BeadsMe featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in her treausry, Last Minute Gifts Under 50.  Emerald green is the new Pantone Color of the Year for 2013 (and my birth stone).  So this beautiful emerald necklace will be right on trend:

Jocelyn Cube of Jocelyn Cube Designs featured my orange chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Orange Gifts Under 50.  This Augustine orange tangerine flower purse from Jocelyn's shop would also make a pretty orange gift:

Felicia P. Dadak from catwalk featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Now We're Cooking.  Felicia makes unique collages, art prints, and other magnificent paper creations.  I love this Marilyn in Washington Collage Print.

And there you have it!  Thank you, curators!  And thank you, readers, for stopping by.
