Treasury Round Up - 9/30/12

It's been another good treasury week! Please help me thank the curators who featured my work this past week by visiting their shops and checking out their treasuries.

Judy (JNOriginals) included my Beaded Bracelet - The Leaf Series - Winter in her A Zen Moment treasury. This definitely is a calming collection. Check out Judy's Crochet headwarmer with flower, denim blue, adjustable width.

Deb (storybeader) included my Beaded Cuff Bracelet - Multicolored - Inspired by Picasso in her Unforgettable treasury. Deb came across this word in a blog post and decided to see what she could do with it for a treasury. I love that! Check out her Multi-color handmade paper beads.

Jamie (PoppyHillCreations) included my Beaded Bracelet - The Leaf Series - Fall Autumn II in her Finally Fall treasury. I never get tired of this color palette. There is a great mix of items here. Check out Jamie's Printable Fall Foliage Digital Clip Art.

Linda (PruittCreations) included my Button Charm Bracelet - Maroon / Dark Red, Gray / Silver, Black, White in her Personal Favorites from BBArtisans treasury. There are so many talented ladies in the BBArtisans. I could easily put together a favorites treasury, too. Check out Linda's Vine Redwork Embroidery Hoop Art.

Heather (iHartFelt) included my Beaded Bracelet - Skinny Square Stitch - Pastels in her Fall into Pastel treasury. I'm not a huge fan of pastels, but this is a beautiful collection. Check out Heather's Eco Felt Owl White Pink.

Sarah (MagnoliaSurprise) included my Beaded Bracelet - The Leaf Series - Autumn in her Falling Leaves treasury. Of course I love this collection! Check out Sarah's Candy Corn, Set of 3, Fall and Halloween Decor, Ornament, Bowl Filler.

Sharla (BeadedTail) included my Beaded Dangle Earrings - Fall Autumn Leaves in her Pumpkins, a Kitty, and a Dog named Leela! treasury. Sharla comes up with some of the most creative treasury titles. Check out her Custom Caterpillar Beadwoven Bracelet - Orange and Black.

I also curated my own treasury this week: Red + Orange = Fall

Thanks to those who linked up with me last week!  Here are a few of the items that they featured last week.  Click on the photos to check out the product listings.

I am really touched by all the people whom I have inspired to start their own treasury round ups with awesome shop features and write ups!  Please link up with me and grab a button for your own post.  I know that not everyone posts these rounds ups on Sundays, which is fine.  I will leave this link up open all week.

If you link up, take the time to visit and comment on at least one other post.  No one benefits from linking up if we don't all support each other.  Thanks!

Saturday Link List: the Halloween costume edition

Welcome to another special edition of my Saturday Link List!
