Treasury Team Presents: Getting to Know You!

I was so inspired by the SF Etsy Team Gallery Show at Studio today!  Of course our team wowed with art, craft, and baked treats of all kinds, and was what newly enjoyable for me was hearing more about the daily lives of our team members.  The stories of how we manage life in the Bay Area, balance day jobs and families, and keep our own creative sparks burning was truly awesome.

In this spirit, I'd love to launch our next Treasury Team Challenge with a Getting to Know You theme.  Please create a treasury with a few SF Etsy team members (search for the tag "sfetsy") and curate your own visual art show sharing an element of your own life balance.  It can be the celebration of a hobby, a place you love to go for inspiration, honoring family support, a timeline of how you got here... imagine it's a virtual cocktail party and we all have a chance for a lively chat.  Please tag your treasury with "SFEtsy Treasury Team" so others can find you, give a link back to the blog, and describe your treasury a bit (you can do this in the comments if there is not room in the description area).  You can share your treasury everywhere you like, including the comments section of this post!

I'd also like to honor the lovely Sarah Friedman of Birdbags as she is a second time winner of our Treasury Team Challenge~ having gained the most views, comments, and favorites in our last set of treasuries.  Check out her adorable iphone cases (also at Studio Gallery)!

Here's an example from my getting to know treasury, it's about a summer project dream that I finally got to complete with some help from my grandparents and a long lasting summer in Montana...

Last summer I built a mahogany boat, a wineglass wherry. As part of our San Francisco Etsy Treasury Team Getting to Know You series, I give you this illustrated snippet of my creative life!














Looking forward to getting to know more of our team! Let's have two weeks of entries, a 'winner' with the most views, favorites, and comments will have their shop and treasury featured in the next blog post.  Questions?  Email me @
