Team Newsletter #1

This is our first "Team Newsletter". Team members, Please email me to give me your email address to receive our newsletter. It will be a weekly newsletter (sometimes less often). Your email will be safe. I won’t use it for SPAM or give out our email address to others and you may cancel your subscription at any time.

Besides organizing treasury giveaways, we’re also dedicated to promoting our products within the team and as a team. We started a team blog: The team blog is to announce treasury giveaways and to introduce our shop owners to the public.  To be featured in our team blog, email me an introduction of you/your shop. Include links to a few items you like in your shop. Pictures are better than words! Here are some ideas to write about:
 - How did you get started on Etsy?
 - What kind of products do you sell?
 - What are your favorites in your store?

Also, Nicole Phillips from SayitWithPaper ( volunteered to review team member’s shop and pin some of our items to our Pin board ( Since not everyone likes to be featured on pinterest, Nicole will only pin your items if you give her permission to do so in our thread (

Every business owner should have his/her business cards with them at all times. You will never know when the opportunity comes up to give a potential customer your card! and Etsy are offering 50 FREE business cards ( Just pay shipping. I just ordered mines last week, shipping was $5.50 by USPS. I didn’t get my order yet but I read from a lot of other team discussions that is very good quality.

Jacque, our team leader and I put together a starter kit for Etsy Sellers. It includes great files to organize your business and a Swarovski Sandisk USB drive to save your files and pictures on.

We would like to invite more members to join our team!  That way we'll expand our knowledge base and exposure.  Invite your friends to join us!

Jacque - Tidymight/Facebodyfeet

Today we are introducing a leader of our treasury giveaway team!  She's the creative mind behind her 2 Etsy shops - tidymighty and facebodyfeet .  Read her story below...

"Hi everyone! I'm Jacque, a leader of the Treasury Giveaway Team with Regina! I'm so excited to be a part of this team and help Etsy artists promote and expose their products to the Etsy community and beyond!

My shop is tidymighty. I make organizational printables. I started making them for myself to use for my personal life and to stay organized with my bath & body business. I realized that I had so many of them and couldn't be the only person who would find them useful. So I opened a 2nd shop on Etsy, apart from my bath & body shop (! Since starting last month, my printables have been received well and I'm happy that they are helping others get organized as well!

Can't wait to see this team grow!"

Jacque and Regina teamed up to provide a "starter kit" for every Etsy business!  Must haves, packaged in a discounted bundle.

Sarah Allyce - Tied In a Knot Bowtique

Sarah is the proud owner of Tied In a Know Bowtique on Etsy.  She creates hair accessories for girls of all ages.  Read her story below...

"Hello everyone Im Sarah and 23 years old :) I have a beautiful soon to be 3 year old daughter named Emily who actually is the main reason i started my little ol' shop.

I've always loved bows and I've bought them at Hottopic and the internet more times than i can count. But it was always so hard for me to find ones that i really liked and was looking for.  Same for Emily. I'm not a super glittery nor girly person so i wanted bows that were cute but still had a little edge and quirk to them ;) bows that could be for toddlers, teens, and women and still look great!

I slowly began to promote my items and everyone seemed to love them! Which brings us to today :) I started my shop in October so I'm still rather new to Etsy but i absolutely love this site and am hoping that my dream of more than one sale ( possibly more ? haha) a week comes true soon!

I'm adding new items every week and have lots of sales going on, so be sure to stop by! I'm sure I'll have something for you :D

Here are my favorite and newest items :) Check my shop for more! Custom orders are always
welcome :3"

Welcome to The Treasury Giveaway Team blog!  I'm Regina, owner of LuckyStarsHawaii.  Please visit my Etsy store:

I'm from the Aloha State, Hawaii.  Where the weather is great, ocean is blue and people are nice.  For those of you who visited Hawaii, you probably noticed that we like to dress casually and wear our slippers (flip-flops) all day.  I like to use Swarovski crystals in my jewelry.  A little shine, nothing over the top that's perfect for everyday use - even in the casual State of Hawaii!

I'm the captain of an Etsy team - The Treasury Giveaway Team.  The team is dedicated to organizing FREE treasury giveaways!  To enter our St. Patrick's Day Treasury Giveaway, just post a comment in the treasury page:
