EKTT Final Frontier Challenge: You Color My World with Love or Etsy's Taste Test

EtsyKids Treasury Team Curators, welcome to our final team challenge!  You have promoted the EtsyKids Team with stunning curations for nearly a year.  Your growth as curators and your enduring loyalty and friendship have touched my heart and life.  I could not be prouder to have been your "treasury mama" and to eternally remain your friend.

You have honored my shop with many gorgeous treasuries over this year, and I appreciate each and every one of those tributes.  I would like to request that you take the opportunity of this final challenge to highlight your EtsyKids teammates and fellow cup overflows with blessings from all of you.   

Please enjoy this final challenge in representing our EtsyKids Team as the EKTT! I'm looking forward to seeing your creativity flow!  

Don't forget the lessons of children:  Never be afraid to look stupid, act silly, let your imagination run wild, or share your own quirky sense of humor--if you spread smiles and laughter your days on this planet are worthwhile.  Give of yourself.  It's the best present you can give and more valuable than any material gift anyone could ever receive.  I wish you all health, happiness, and continued success.  

With a Heart Full of Gratitude,
Loren a.k.a. "Treasury Mama"
