About UninventedColors

I finally got around to filling in Etsy's new (or maybe not so new anymore) "About" page for my shop. Check it out!

I think it's a pretty good start, but I'd like to add some more info and photos of how I create. Any ideas? What do YOU want to know about UninventedColors?

Treasury Team Time

I love selling on Etsy, but I must admit it's hard work. There are hundreds of thousands of shops (and more opening every day), so it's pretty hard to be seen. I recently took a step toward getting seen more often: I joined some treasury teams! I've been putting it off for a long time, but I'm glad I did it. In case you're not in the know, a treasury team is just a group of Etsy sellers who include each other in treasuries, which are collections of items that can be viewed by buyers and sometimes make it to the front page of the site. There's time and effort involved, but I think it's going to be worth it. I haven't made it to the front page (or, you know, sold anything) since I started this, but my work has been included in some beautiful collections made by my fabulous team members. Let me share some of my favorites with you:
