Treasury Challenge with a twist...

Penny for your Thoughts by 9design

Time flies! It is nearly six months ago since the existing Etsy Ireland Team committee started their jobs, and soon, we'll be looking for volunteers for the new committee. I shall post the job descriptions and call for volunteers this weekend.

To combine the playful with the necessary, I've decided to kick start the change-over process with a Treasury Challenge. What better way to think about our team and volunteering for a team position than looking at the lovely goodies our team members produce. And we all might get new ideas for the team and what we are going to do next. AM actually gave me the inspiration for this - she should really get a job as a muse!

The topic of the Treasury Challenge is


(and yes, it is a challenge, but you can be as creative as you want to!)

Here come the rules:

The treasury must be curated between today and Friday 24 June (midnight GMT) - this is an extension because it looks like people need more time to join the challenge. Voting will then go on until Monday, 27 June, 23:59, and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, 28 June.
  • A link to your treasury must be posted here in the comments of this post to enter.
  • Your treasury must contain two tags:craftyirelandteam and citchallenge8 (note the 8).
  • You must include 8-10 Crafty Ireland Team members in your treasury.
  • Your treasury must not include one of your own items.
For those who are new to the team and haven't made a treasury yet, here's a link to a handy 'how to make treasuries' written by Anne-Marie from by Amo'r.

The happy winner will receive a a little feature post here on the blog AND their Etsy Mini listed in the sidebar for one whole week!

Happy creating! Looking forward to your inspiring treasuries! If you have any questions about treasuries and the treasury challenge, do not hesitate to post in the comment section, or convo me.

  1. I have made one:

    does this open to international volunteer?


  2. Hi Dita,

    usually, the treasury challenge is only for team members, but when do we ever get somebody from Indonesia wanting to feature our team in a treasury???

    So I think it's ok to make an exception this time - you're very welcome to join! Your treasury is very cute!!!

  3. Hi!

  6. Hi,
    I didnt realize there was a competition until just now. I hope i am not too late.

    I made this treasury because i wanted to show a different side of ireland other than green/white/gold

    I hope you like it

  7. Hi Apple, no, you're not too late - in fact, I am extending the deadline once more, because I am hoping we get some more entries. The new deadline is this Friday, 23:59 GMT!

  8. OK, here's my late but not too late entry:

    Anybody later than I???

  9. The competition is now closed. Vote now in the poll at the sidebar!
