Having Fun Creating!

Wow, can you believe this crazy weather we are having..??  Well, here anyway it is November and we can still open our windows and enjoy the outdoors...we have had some snow already, but long gone now.  I have been loving it.  
I have been finding  a lot of new ways to do some advertising.  Just getting my name out there.  I have joined that new community.  I also have been doing a bunch of treasuries on Etsy.  Those are actually fun to do.  I never really did very many, but have done 3 or 4 in the last week or so.  Go for it if you are on Etsy because usually the people you are promoting, have never seen your shop and then they make a treasury with one of your items and there you have just hit several new potential customers.  Yay!  Anything for free!  Well, that is what I say! 

If you aren't sure how to do is a good way, or at least my way!  :)  

First I go through and find something that strikes me...I favorite it.
Pick a theme.
Then find 11- 15 more things that go along with my theme.  Heart them...
Open another window.  
Now go to  your favorites window. Keep it open...
In the other window  go to the treasury home page~create a list button is on the right side of the page. 
All you have to do now is go back to your favorites, 
right click the item's link name, hit copy and then go back to the treasury page and click paste into the box. 
You just continue to do this with each item until all the boxes are done...Hit save! 

Have fun!

I have also been having fun trying out some new things in my shop lately...a new keychain and a coffee cozy.  I also have several new appliques that I have been making. Check it out soon if you haven't seen them! 

Happy Crafting!!
