Esty Treasury Team's Featured Artist of the Week

This week I am featuring a very talented photographer from the Etsy Treasury Team, her shop name is Leapinggazelle.  Lauren's nature inspired photographs all have a soft, romantic, dreamy quality to them.  I have been a fan of Lauren's even before joining the Etsy Treasury Team. Her floral pictures have a rather unique quality, almost reminiscent of antique botanical illustrations.  I also really enjoy her sea shell series.  Please take some time to browse through Lauren's lovely shop!

Back to Blogging and a Feature

Happy New Year to everyone!  I know I'm a little bit late with this but I have been on a blogging hiatus.  I had an amazing Christmas season and I hope everyone else did too.  But it left little time for blogging.  The beginning of the New Year is always a time to regroup, rethink, and reorganize for the coming year and that is just what I have been doing for the last couple of weeks.

Last September I joined a wonderful Etsy Team called the Etsy Treasury Team.  The main focus of the team is to create beautiful treasuries and help promote your fellow teammates.  I am really happy that I joined this team because all the team members are so supportive of one another plus I have learned quite a bit about promoting, making treasuries, and SEO. 

Since joining the team I wanted to start a weekly feature on my blog spotlighting a different member each week.  I thought the best person to start with would be Lynn of Midnight Coiler our team founder and leader.  Lynn's Etsy shop is filled with hand-carved gourds, coiled baskets, and an array of other amazing items all crafted from natural elements. She is not only a talented artist, she is also a fantastic team leader.
