PIF (Play It Forward) Treasuries on Etsy

I like making treasuries on etsy. It gives me a chance to discover new shops and sellers. I have had three treasuries make it to the front page resulting in lots of views and "favorites" to MY shop. Making treasuries feels like arranging the items in a store window (if I had a brick and mortar store...with windows!) I have been unexpectedly rewarded by the sellers I feature with discounts towards purchases in their shops, being included in treasuries they create and even being sent a set of lovely photo notecards once as a thank you gift.
So when I found out about PIF treasuries, my participation was all but guaranteed. My "Cloudy with a Chance of Rain Necklace" (pictured above) was featured in a treasury called Aquatic Flame by Katie Neall of Furious DesignsWhen I went to leave a comment, I saw this posted by the treasury's creator:


PCF Team Play It Forward Treasury Challenge

So I found a lovely upcycled sweater in Katie's shop, and made it the first item in a treasury called:
