EKTT Weekly Treasury Challenge: Etsy's Euro Week & Spring Holidays

The winner of our latest weekly treasury challenge, felted kitten on Etsy, wants to honor Etsy's Euro Week 2011 and Spring Holidays!  I am positive you creative EKTT curators will come up with inventive ways to combine April Fools' Day or Easter or Mother's Day with Etsy's Euro Week celebration

Etsy's Euro Week 2011
March 21 through March 27 Etsy celebrates European art and artists of Etsy with
home pages full of products from Europe!  Read all about it HERE!
Focus Items:  Check out featured shops HERE and from the blog post highlighted above or use geographic search to find your own European shops to feature.  Tag treasuries "EtsyEuro."  Think stripey French shirts, European maps and objects made of them, London, Scotland, Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland...focus on one particular region or combine all of Europe!  (Note:  EtsyKids Team items do not have to originate in Europe but may honor European flavor in either style or perhaps a European flag.)


April Fools' Day, Easter, or Mother's Day
Focus Items:  April Fools treasuries will focus on practical jokes, gag gifts, and silly handmade and vintage items...tickle our funny bones!  Easter and Mother's Day treasuries will be tagged with these dates:  Mothering Sunday, April 3; Easter, April 24; and Mother's Day, May 8.  Think spring gardening, flowers, and spring fashion basics in lighter materials, open-toe shoes, sunglasses, hair accessories and jewelry, and home decor.  Natural history and bright pops of spring color are very appropriate for these treasuries.

1.  Submit as many treasuries fitting these themes in as many variations as you wish through Saturday, March 26, 7:00 p.m. EST.  

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.

7.  Please do not include any treasury team tags other than the EtsyKids Treasury Team tag and related challenge tags on EKTT challenge treasuries.  Any challenge submission containing treasury team tags other than "etsykids tteam" will automatically be disqualified from winning.  Thank you, EKTT Curators!


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.
