Another treasury today

I'm enjoying this curating gig. Today's treasury is called California Craftin' and features members of CCCOE -- California Crafters Club of Etsy (I can never get that exactly right)

I ran across this great saying on the Etsy Greetings blog this morning that I thought I'd share:

"Spread Love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier" ~ Mother Teresa.

It was from the artist who runs this shop: Remember Me.

My treasury

Last night, just as I was about to sign off for the day, I became the curator of my Etsy treasury. For the uninitiated, a treasury is a collection of images collected from other shops, usually following a theme of the curator's choice. My theme is Rainbows and peace. Here's a link if you'd like to see:
I also started making little origami boxes and ended up with eight of them. I thought about selling them, but the other sellers on Etsy sell them at such a low price that I'm not sure it would be reasonable. On the other hand, I will probably make dozens, and there are only so many you can give to friends. I'm trying out different types of coatings to render them more permanent; so far I've only tried Golden's Heavy Gel medium. It's not at all tacky (as in sticky) but neither does it give a kind the kind of rigidity I'm seeking. More later, I guess.

Yesterday I started making Halloween cards. I love this little dog. It's a rubber stamp made by Paper Source.

First day of my blog!!

I've been a member of Etsy for over a year now, selling handmade paper art. I'm also a member of the Etsy Loco for Gocco Street Team, Etsy Greetings, and CCCOE (creative california crafters of Etsy, I think). Everyone is very excited about their blogs and says this is a good way to let people know about your work. So here I am.
