Treasury Spotlight

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Ingenuity team blog.  Did you know that the Ingenuity team has a bunch of fun treasury challenges running on our Etsy discussion forum right now?  Let's take a look and maybe you'll even decide you want to join in the fun.

One of our popular on-going treasury challenges is the Inspiration treasury challenge run by team leader Diane of muddywaterscc.  In this challenge the winner of the challenge from the week before gets to pick an item from their shop that is then featured in the new week's treasuries.  The person that is featured then gets to pick their favorite treasury from the week and the creator becomes the next featured shop!  It's a great way to get your shop featured in new treasuries.  Here's a beautiful example of a treasury created for this challenge- here is
"Electric Blue and Sterling Silver" by CartoCreative featuring MoltenColor's snakeskin pattern blown glass art vase:

One of our brand new treasury challenges is also run by Diane.  This is the Scavenger Hunt treasury challenge.  In this treasury challenge we are given an Ingenuity team shop to feature along with a list of words that you must represent by items from Etsy shops.  For instance, here is this week's list:
1. www.etsy.com/shop/ThreeLittleCatsShop
2. Home
3. Serenity
4. Warmness
5. Joy
6. Secret
7. Gift
8. Wish
9. Beauty
10. Mystery
11. Silence
12. Magic
13. Abstract
14. Unknown
15. Emotion
16. Infinity

Each space in the treasury must represent one of the items on this list. Each item must be represented to win the game. Include the featured shop in the top row. The remaining items can be placed in any order you wish.  The featured shop picks the winner of the challenge and that winner becomes the next featured shop.  Sharon of Artcapades created this cool "Scavenger Hunt mystery and fun" for this week's challenge featuring a black cat figurine from ThreeLittleCatsShop:

Team leader Jessica of FeathandKee has been running the on-going Help Jane and Kate! Treasury challenge.  Each week continues the story of Jane and Kate, two college grads that have just started their first jobs and live together to share expenses.  They need help with various tasks for instance this week they are getting ready for St. Patrick's day.  Here's Diane of muddywaterscc's "St. Patrick's Day" created for this challenge:

Jessica is also running a new challenge for the team!  In the Treasury Color Game each week we are given a new color that will be featured in the treasuries.  At least eight of the items used have to be from an Ingenuity team shop.  This week the color selected was the bright orange of the dahlia hair flower from HairFair's shop.  Here's a selection from this week's submitted treasuries, SassySenoritaVintage's "Orangen't you glad it's a treasury????":

That's so bright and fun!

I hope you'll decide to check out the various treasury challenges and give one of them a try.  While you are at it, why not say thanks to the busy people creating all these treasuries by giving them some clicks, comments and favoriting their treasuries?  And don't forget to stop by their shops and give them a few favorites too!  That's a great thing about belonging to a team on Etsy- we can all help promote each other and help our shops to become more successful.  

Until next time,

Jennifer
