Treasuries are member-selected collections of neat items that fit either a general or specific theme. They're meant to be generous, not self-promotional, and treasury makers are asked not to list more than one of their own items. There are only so many treasuries allotted at a time, and one has to be quick to nab one. Today at 4:30 pm, I finally got my shot. I grabbed a treasury slot, named it "A Story, A Story" (after the book by Gail E. Haley) and selected 12 favorite listings plus 4 alternates. You can view the treasury here until Saturday morning at 9:49 am (either Etsy's Eastern Standard Time or my Pacific Standard Time). I also have a screen shot:

I met my personal goal of 2 sales a week with three sales so far: Hellebore, Galadriel Fuchsia and Crocus. Believe it or not, Galadriel Fuchsia is an actual name of a Fuchsia, and not my coy attempt to cash in on the Lord of the Rings. I wanted to contribute a prize to MotherReader's 48 Hour Book Challenge that was somehow book-related, and so I sent MR a similiar-but-different Galadriel Fuchsia sister.
My latest listing is a Buttercup Root Child from a friend who sent me a "wishlist" note (by which people can recommend dolls without committing to custom orders). I don't often make blonde-haired dolls, but yellow hair was fitting for this one. I completed my Strawberry Child and am currently at work on the companion Blueberry Child. These dolls are a little bit bigger, more intricately embroidered, and will end up costing just a tiny bit more. However, they come with baskets filled with fruit. It's pretend fruit, but I trust you to use your imaginations effectively. I know. For those prices you expect real fruit. Here is your exclusive sneak peak, as Strawberry Child has not yet been listed:
Thank you for your continued encouragement and support.
