My First Etsy Treasury

Today I put together my first Etsy treasury. I've been lucky enough to have been featured in many treasuries since starting my new account: I've even been on the Etsy frontpage several times in one day. I figured it's time for me to come up with my own treasury to show the Etsy community that I'm on the lookout too. Below is a screenshot of what I came up with:

I never realized how much time and effort it takes to assemble twelve items into one group. I focused on photographs that I liked. That was it. I didn't have any special requirements. If I like your pic you're in. It took me about an hour and 35 pages of scrolling. Maybe I'm just really picky and don't know it.
One thing I did keep in mind is that Etsy seems to favor gray and white items for treasuries, so I used a lot of color. But I just like colorful things so it worked out perfect.

I have a new respect for the people who put these things together on a regular basis and for fun. I'm sure there's a more efficient way to do it than just choosing a single broad category and randomly scrolling, but the hunt is part of the fun.
