Today's a really wonderful day in a lot of ways. First it is Valentine's day: the day to show love. And secondly, I woke up this morning to discover 2 of my paintings are featured in 2 Etsy treasury lists. Being new to Etsy, there's so much that I do not know and "Treasuries" are some of them. But I've heard a lot about them and I know that a lot of people struggle to get one and better still many are happy when their item is featured in a treasury.
I came across this article that explained to a good extent what treasuries are all about and how one can go about getting it. At the end of the day it turned out that it actually does merit all the hype that has been placed on it. According to the article,
"A Treasury is a member-curated gallery of short-lived lists of 12 hand-picked items each (plus four alternates). It functions as a high-demand (and pretty!) promotional tool that many devoted Etsians fight to get. Members can feature their favorite items, items selected on a theme, or just however they like. The Treasury is not intended for self-promotion, but instead to acknowledge and share the many cool things for sale on Etsy."
"The Etsy Home Page rotates many times daily and is selected from a Treasury List or curated by Admin. The Admins choose their favorite lists to feature on the front page"
It sure does feel good knowing that someone liked my work enough to put it in a treasury. And the best part of the treasury is that it is visible to the public.
Please do make out time to visit the treasuries and click on my paintings to view them. Comments about the treasury are also allowed (and would be appreciated!!). They are here
