Pedal to the Metal

I built my first ever Treasury on Etsy!

Before Ride the Rockies, I didn't know what a Treasury was. Then just a few days before I left to pedal across the state on my bicycle, one of my scarves was featured in a Treasury. I was on top of the clouds! Someone liked something I made enough to feature it in a Treasury!

I didn't have time to play around and experiment then, but I've wanted to pass on that magical feeling ever since. I've been in catch-up mode now for a few days, so this is as good a time as any. A bit of hit and miss was involved; I had to make a few edits because I made a few mistakes building this. But I finally got it right, and here it is!

For those who don't know what a Treasury is, it's a giant-sized warm fuzzy crafters give each other by picking items in a theme, which Etsy then features, sometimes even on Etsy's front page.

I, of course, picked bicycles for my theme, and was quite surprised by the variety of handmade crafts I found that would make the perfect gift for any cyclist.

So now, loyal readers, you can pass on that warm fuzzy feeling that enveloped me back in June by clicking on the picture above or here and leaving a comment on the Treasury or by clicking onto any of the 16 shops in the Treasury and "hearting" something you like. I promise, just a minute or two of your time will absolutely make someone's whole weekend!


  1. I think these are all lovely :)

  2. There's a lot of bicycle items. I often have looked for a nice charm. :)

  3. Nice choices. I'd never heard of a Treasury but you did a great job putting yours together. My two favs are the bicycle chain bracelet and the embroidered hand towels. So cute!!!
