Today it was 72 degrees in central Iowa, warmer than in southern California where John and I spent the first 12-1/2 years of our marriage. I am certain this spring-like weather will not last, but it sure is making everyone feel like spring is around the corner. That fact is reflected in this week’s group of Treasuries. Thanks to all of the curators for featuring one (or more) items from JN Originals and Mister PenQuin on Etsy.
Sharla of Beaded Tail included my Felted Wool Aqua Bowl in her Treasury titled “It’s Almost Easter So Don’t Forget the BUNNY!” She makes elegant beaded jewelry such as this pair of earrings.
Linda of Pruitt Creations included my Lavender Cat Felted Wool Needle Book in her Treasury named “Animal Inspiration.” Linda is giving away the Crayon Roll shown below, as well as a coaster set of your choice from her shop, for this month’s Blogging Business Artisans March Giveaway.

Kaili of KAW! Studios included my earth-toned felted coffee cup cozy in her Treasury called “BBArtisans: Lovely Earthy Tones.” Her shop includes original ACEO (miniature art cards) illustrations, handmade bookmarks, fine art and nature photography prints, hang tags, personalized sketch books, keepsake boxes, and more collectible items. If you are a book lover like me, you cannot have enough bookmarks, and Kaili has plenty of them!
Kym of Fabric Fascination featured my Lavender Cat Felted Wool Needle Book in her Treasury titled “Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button?” I never get tired of looking at her beautiful designer fabrics, but I keep coming back to the hand-dyed batiks.
Jamie of For Love of Cupcakes included my Chicken Little Mini Brag Book, as well as my Aqua Felted Wool Bowl and Purple Paisley Floral Mini Clipboard, in her Treasury named “The Most Wonderful Springtime Items on Etsy.” She makes sweet hair bows and hair clips for little girls, such as the ones shown below.
Pam of Bags and More by Pam featured my Golden Meadow Crochet Thread Flower Brooch in her Treasury called “Flowers, flowers … everywhere.” In her product description for the crocheted items shown below, Pam writes, “Kitchen or bath? You decide.” Either way, these useful items are also pretty!
Raynee of Raynee’s Tarot Temple included my Envelope Pocket Album for Photos in her Treasury titled “Soft Earth.” At the time this post was written, her shop was “on vacation.” However, Raynee sells customized tarot readings, so if this is your thing, you can visit her shop when she returns.
Laura of Regency Austentation Accessories included my Chicken Little Mini Fold Book in her Treasury called “Me and My Peeps.” Her shop features Jane Austen and Edwardian-inspired items such as this hat that looks like it came straight out of the popular BBC Downton Abbey series.
Susan of Three Sisters Candles included my Chicken Little Mini Fold Book in her Treasury titled “Spring bunnies and babies.” She specializes in handmade candles and shea butter soap, but also makes stained glass vases and candle holders such as the one shown below. Stunning!
Blanca Perse is a writer and single mother from Madrid, Spain who dreams of publishing her first book. She included one of my mini clipboards for Post it® Notes in her Treasury called “:: Writing Vintage::.” Although Blanca does not currently have an Etsy shop, she is planning on opening one soon. Be on the lookout for BLANCA PERSE’S EXTRAVAGANZA!
Aline, an Etsy buyer, included my Envelope Pocket Album for Photos in her eco-themed Treasury named “Tree of Earth.”
Julia of Fibernique also included my Envelope Pocket Album for Photos in her Treasury called “Earthy Inspirations.” Julia specializes in fiber and textile jewelry and accessories such as this gorgeous scarf.
