Etsy Project Embrace IMAGINE treasury challenge

I am grateful to be part of Etsy Project Embrace. I was shocked and excited to have recently won the EPE treasury challenge. I mean, I am a total noob (as my teenager would say) ha ha! No, but seriously, I am a big time newbie with this team! But having been voted as the winner has given me an even greater glimpse of how amazing this team is. I have organized a treasury challenge on a small scale for my local team, so I know that organizing a treasury challenge with the amount of entries EPE receives is a pretty big project. But EPE is a true team! Everyone volunteers to help out to make things happen. It is pretty awesome! I like to see people working together for a common goal. The EPE goal is to increase awareness and support for those who have been diagnosed with cancer. Through our treasuries, blog posts, Etsy shops, social media postings, etc our team gains exposure so we can further spread this message. It is great to see people work together and so many Etsy shop owners donating to American Cancer Society and other cancer awareness and support related organizations.

I have been appointed one of three judges for the current treasury challenge round, along with the other winners of the JOY treasury challenge. For this round, I selected the theme Imagine. I have been looking through all the Imagine treasuries and am awed by the wonderful eye some of our team members have, however most of them ARE artists. And very talented ones at that. So why should I be surprised? Maybe, more like, overwhelmed with thinking I have to pick three favorites and an alternate (sigh). That is going to be tough.

These next two treasuries feature items created by Tricky Fox Designs. I am very honored to be part of such wonderful collections. Thank you, Suz, of simplysuzula, for including my shell and stone bracelet.


And thank you, Mollie, of RoughMagicCreations, for including one of my dichroic fused glass pendants in her gorgeous collection. Can you find IMAGINE in this trej?
