Why we joined the NonTeam...

When I decided to start our blog, I spent a lot of time browsing the blogs of other Etsians, to see what everyone had to say. In my search I found a post by one of our fellow members of the EtsyRAIN Team for artists in the Seattle area, Jenna of Jenna's Red Rhino, where she sells awesome lingerie and other accessories. In her post she discussed the valuable experience she had with joining a treasury team. While we have done treasuries before it was usually either at a whim, or to promote another team such at EtsyRAIN or the Retro Handmade Team we are part of. The idea of joining a team for the sole purpose of making treasuries had never occurred to me.

So I went about looking for a team that fit our interests and time availability and finally decided upon the Treasury Challenge NonTeam. This "team" which actually isn't, was perfect for us. Every week there is a new inspiration item, upon which you build your treasury, if the seller of the featured item chooses you as the winner the next weeks item will be from your shop and you become the judge. However, as opposed to many other teams, there is no requirement to participate. You simple follow their blog and watch for the weekly item, and then you choose whether to participate or not. That way if you don't have time, you won't be shunned for not filling your treasury quota that week.

This weeks inspiration item was a very cute felted great horned owl kit, you can find it at the weekly challenge post here. And here is our treasury to be judged for this weeks challenge, what do you think?
