I was bummed! Sally was snowed in and couldn’t get out of her driveway. Thankfully, the electricity hadn’t gone off when the big snow hit, and there was still Instant Messaging. I was sitting there virtually chatting with Sally, when I said to myself, “Hmmm. Think I’ll check out the Etsy treasury and see how close it is to opening up.” Wrote to Sally, “Be back in a few!”

The list totaled 344 with about an hour to go. “Should be able to create a treasury in that time,” I thought. So, off I went to look for a theme……… sounded nice! (And it is never a problem to find marvelous, gorgeous, beautiful, fabulous creations when one looks for items created by members of the Boomers and Beyond Team.) Thank goodness for the Poster Sketch Tool that lets one move photos around to arrange them just so!

Back to the IM. I wrote, “Oh, Sally, just wait till you see this treasury of Bbest creations! Now, the only trick is being there when the window opens. Be right back.” “No problem,” Sally replied.

Down to 15 minutes, 8 minutes, 3 minutes. Decided I’d better just wait right there. Wallah! The box opened, and off I went entering the listing numbers in the small boxes and watching the photos magically appear. About half way through, the numbers weren’t going into the boxes! Seemed frozen. My guess was the Etsy servers were simply overloaded with treasury makers! After a few minutes, I was able to finish it.

Back to the IM. “Sally, it’s finished. Here is the listing number so you can go check it out! Let me know what you like the best,” I wrote. “I will move the alternates into the treasury before it expires so all have a chance to be seen.”

It wasn’t long before I saw the IM flashing. Sally was back. “I’m in awe,” she wrote. “I can’t choose a favorite….I like them all!”

“Me, too,” I replied. “So much that I’m going to put the the active photos and the alternates here as well…..never know how many folks might see them here on the blog! Also, the treasury will expire on Wednesday, and so the photos will be here well after that!”
