felt or enjoyed through imagined participation in the experience of others: a vicarious thrill.

There was an etsy front page treasury all about ME last night. No, really!

What a strange feeling. I wasn’t in it, I didn’t make it, but it was made in my honour by virtuebathandbeauty from etsy. Jessica from virtuebathandbeauty has a real eye for curating treasuries, and has set herself a massive challenge of making treasuries for different members of the Curation Nation team. It’s not easy, I can tell you, because I volunteered to make one for Jessica. Very hard to capture a person you have never met based on the answers to a few questions! No pressure…

Which is why I am stunned at how good Jessica’s one of me actually was! She’s even got a printer’s drawer – my most prized possession (apart from the things in it) that I blogged about here (but she didn’t know that). But as I said in the comments: it’s far more beautiful, sophisticated and cool than me, but hey, it might rub off…

Here’s what I made for Jessica. I like the treasury, but have no idea if it’s really to her taste or captures ‘her’, it was a fun challenge to do, though!

You really should check out Jessica’s other treasuries here

The treasuries I’ve made can all be found here, if you’l like to take a look.

    I know, I was thrilled to be asked! It's a really hard challenge to do, but I enjoyed making one, too.
