Craft Britannia Treasure-thon

Last night the Craft Britannia Etsy team had a treasure-thon.  For those of you who don't use Etsy or treasuries, you may be wondering what on earth that is!  Well, in a nuthsell treasuries are a place on Etsy where members curate galleries of items they've found on Etsy.  If Etsy likes them, they may be selected for the front page meaning extra visitors for the people featured and the person creating the treasury.

MissBelle UK had the idea for us to have a treasure-thon where we spent 3 hours making as many treasuries as we could, featuring at least 6 team members in each one.  Between us we created over 120 treasuries in 3 hours and we got the tag for the treasure-thon trending.  We were only expecting to do around 50 so it went pretty well!  Hopefully at least one will make the front page for Etsy Europe.  It was great fun anyway and we're talking about making it a regular thing.  Perhaps I'll let you know in advance of the next one.  You can view all the treasuries we made here if you'd like to see them.
