Treasures, Treasuries, and Thoughts

I swore I would never do a blog! So much for swearing. I didn't think that I would have much to say or share. I was wrong! I have been so blessed with a wonderful family, loyal friends, sharing colleagues, and the support from so many that I will never run out of topics to write about.

I have opened an on-line store at a place called Etsy (rhymes with Betsy). The items on the left are available for purchase there. These will change from week to week to show you my latest creations. The link to the store is in the upper left corner of this page.

I also have items for sale listed on Art Fire. The link to my Art Fire Studio is http://www.jstinson.artfire.com/

I hope you will visit this blog, my Flickr page (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jstinson/2500402289/) and my Etsy and/or Art Fire stores often. (http://www.jstinson.etsy.com/ http://www.jstinson.artfire.com


So come along on my Trail of Treasures! It will be a Spirit Journey for me and I invite you to join me on the trip.

National Native American Month Treasury

In honor of National Native American Month, I prepared the Treasury above for Etsy. It was a daunting task to make the decisions on what and who to feature. There were over 4,000 items either tagged or titled Native American. One is allowed only 12 selections and 4 alternates for a Treasury.

I want to thank all of my Bbest team mates and others who viewed, clicked, and commented on the Treasury. The comment section filled and the Treasury advanced to page 1 of the "hot" treasuries before expiring in the middle of last night. If you failed to see the Treasury and would like a closer look at the work of these marvelous artists, I am listing the name of their Etsy shops and you can click on each. I will begin at the top left:

Featured Artists:


When looking for wonderful Native American themed items, don't miss any of these wonderful stores. Mvto and Wa-do to all who promoted this treasury and to all of the featured artists for helping to preserve, protect and perpetuate Native American Arts and Crafts!

Wow -- your talents seem to have no end! I've loved your shop since first I saw it, your talent for curating treasuries is widely known, and now I see that you are awesome at blogging!
Thank you for including me in your gorgeous Treasury among such talented artists, and for keeping the Spirit alive!
