EKTT Weekly Treasury Challenge: Let's Hear it for the Boys (and Etsy Studs)!

The winner of our latest weekly treasury challenge, SquishyBee on Etsy, has decided we need to put the spotlight on dudes--little and big, we love 'em!   I dare ya' to find some Etsy Studs to feature in these fun themes!

Bearded Boys & Their Toys
Focus items:  beards, bearded ladies, beards for your pet pal; vintage designer pieces and collectibles (namely in fashion and bikes/auto).  Etsy says, "The beard and its many variations have transcended the mustache in popularity!" 


Sporty Studs
Focus items:  "The World in Sports" March Madness (college basketball) and spring training (baseball).  Think in terms of teams, colors, brackets, predictions and wagers.  (Note:  Remember not to use any "handmade" category item that features a team logo or fabric or trademarked/copyrighted material.  You may use vintage logo listings.)

1.  Submit as many treasuries fitting these themes in as many variations as you wish through Friday, March 4, 8:00 a.m. CST 

2.  Required Challenge Tags

(Copy and paste the challenge tags to ensure your treasury will be included in judging!)   Please also use applicable key words to tag--listed under Focus Items (above) and taken from Etsy's March Merchandising Report.  

3.  Treasuries must include 4 active and verified EtsyKids Team members. Please take this opportunity to feature either your partner or our March Featured EKTT Member, felted kitten on Etsy, or both in a challenge submission.  

Please see the updated EKTT Check List with new rules in effect March 1 to curate according to guidelines.  Only one feature of your partner is required this month.   New guidelines for 2 of your treasuries:  Feature any 2 EKTT Curators (see blog sidebar for active curator links) plus any 2 (non-EKTT) EtsyKids Team members. 

4.  The winning treasury will be chosen based on MOST VIEWS on Etsy.

5.  EKTT rules and guidelines (including where to post completed treasuries) along with illustrations to help you curate to March 1st guidelines can be found in the EKTT Check List, Curators!

6.  All EKTT Curators are eligible to enter and win, including current and past weekly challenge winners.


Your winning treasury, links to your Etsy shop, and a shop listing you choose will be featured in an EKTT blog post announcing you as our Weekly Treasury Challenge winner.  Your Etsy shop and winning blog entry will be permanently displayed on the EKTT Winners page.  Your Etsy shop will be featured in a Crafcult Slideshow Mini on the top of our blog sidebar.  You will have the honor of choosing the next Weekly Treasury Challenge theme based on a focused idea from our current Etsy Merchandising Report.
