|Two Etsy treasuries, curated by JN Originals|
Since the treasuries I'm in are both curated by Judy (JN Originals), I thought I'd put together a featured post about her. Above are the two treasuries that I'm in this week: Passion's Pleasures, where she featured my Striped Petunia mixed media flat art, and Butterscotch Bounty with a Touch of Sunshine, where you can see my Handwrapped Paper Pumpkin Beads.

In Judy's JN Originals shop, there are crocheted and felted accessories, including some of my favorite multi-purpose items. Like I've said before, when pairing art with a purpose, the product becomes doubly valuable. Her other TWO shops have the same feel; Mister PenQuin (with unique papercrafted gifts) and 2nd Chance Treasures (full of recycled supplies for crafts and stitching).

I feel a special fondness for Judy. We're both boomers (though I'm not a BBEST team member), we are both born at the end of January (she's an Aquarius - I've always wanted to be one!), and we both joined Etsy in 2008. I've come to know her through other Etsy teams and recognize we have something else in common: a love for journals and written art. I've learned about her volunteerism and work with Destination Imagination (DI), which just blows me away. You can read all about DI here. Judy has also been involved in the 52 Week Challenge and the Sketchbook Challenge, two groups I follow and wish I had more time for! She's a real inspiration, and someone I admire. Thank you, Judy, for including me in your treasuries.
