Congratulations to Brooke of Etsy shop Mmim for her winning treasury collection This Is Where You Will Find Me!  Every month, we hold a challenge here on the blog where we take you Inside Etsy through our curated collections.  Using the 16 tile layout, we combine our favorite items in a mini gallery like setting where we can create a visual experience.  Our theme this month was Spring Break: Escape and we had 59 gorgeous submissions to review + choose just one winner.  You can imagine it was no easy task!  However, we narrowed it down to Brooke's baking themed entry as we loved the idea of baking as an escape!  Her title leads you to explore her collection more closely while her modern + simply stated styling really speaks to the simple pleasures of baking.  For those who love to bake, spending time in the kitchen with apron on, stove preheating, + measuring cups out is certainly a meditative escape!  Congratulations Brooke!

***

Oh, but wait!  There's more.

We want to highlight some other collections which really make shopping on Etsy such a joy!  If you're looking for a gift, would you rather page through 22,456 returns on your search inquiry or spend some time browsing beautifully curated Etsy treasury collections?  By building a treasury off a theme, we provide the basic structure + love seeing how our members take flight with this small piece of information.  

For some, a spring break escape was about traveling.  But where would you go?  How about if you just Put a pin in the map and went along for the ride!  We really loved the idea behind this treasury collection by Helen of Etsy shop Cloth and Ink where the destination is a beach somewhere that requires some traveling.  The journey + the destination are both explored, leaving one feeling inspired to pack ones bags, put a pin the map and GO!  Love this energizing collection Helen!

Traveling is certainly exciting for spring break, but sometimes you just need a little R & R.  Shall we call it a Sleepy Break?  How cute is that!  For those of you feeling like you need some time to rest, or rather sleep, over spring break - you'll connect with this collection by Francesca of Francesca Lancisi.  Francesca takes us on a serene journey by using a limited color palette and showing us the many pillow options for our grand break of sleep!  Who's feeling sleepy now?  We love this invitation to slow down, breathe in the fresh air, + reconnect with oneself through the simple act of rest.  Wonderful theme + styling Francesca!

Ok, so you're not going away + maybe you'd feel too guilty to sleep away your spring break, even though you know you could use the sleep!  It's really the perfect time for getting your gardening tools out + doing some digging in the dirt.  If you've ever gardened, you know from experience that there is something so satisfying about working in the garden + it's the best feeling ever to be out working in the spring.  That's why we love this collection by Jillian of Etsy shop Jillian Rene Decor as she reminds us of how refreshing working in the garden can be!  Bright greens + citrus yellows create a mood that invites us to step out + put our Green thumb in the garden to work!  Feeling ready to garden Jillian!

So, we got wondering about how Jenn of Etsy shop Palimpsestic was going to make us smile this challenge - how would she interpret the theme Spring Break: Escape?  Jenn consistently produces some of the most engaging collections + we love seeing the challenge theme through her eyes.  We think you'll love how her sense of humor comes through with her curating skills.  This first collection is again, so clever!  As a play on words, she put together this collection titled Spring Break(ables).  Are you laughing, giggling, or at least smiling because this is so entertaining!  Bravo Jenn!  But keep scrolling...  We end this post with one more collection by Jenn where she asks us all a question!

Our goal for these challenges is to share with a larger audience our knowledge of what's fresh Inside Etsy.  As Etsy shop owners ourselves, we know how to navigate the sometimes crowded waters of Etsy.  Our members are skilled at the art of Etsy treasury curating and we love putting together shopping guides to make shopping on Etsy easy!  But listen, we also like to have FUN!  That's why the winner from each challenge gets included in the top row during the next challenge - a prize for being the winner.  FUN is also why we look forward to Jenn's submissions + why we're going to end with this collection here.   We'll see you next month!  But first...Jenn - are you really going to Disney???  Sounds amazing - have an awesome trip!
