Treasury Appreciation Issues(?)/Tutorial

I'm not sure what's up with either etsy or craftcult-where I usually upload my treasuries from -but it hasn't been working for a few days-so let's see if I can come up with a way to share those that I was featured in over the past week....using my naturally untech-savvy skills ;)

I love the colors here-green and dusty rose




Thanks so much everyone!

O.k so, I figured out an (untech-savvy) way to upload these ~though loaded with steps and a bit time consuming, this is the way I did it in case you'd like to do the same...

#1. Go to the treasury page on etsy
#2. Click f11, then ctrl + print screen -usually up on the top row of keys-I know this is a different key for a mac, sorry I'm not sure which one it is for you guys, I'm lucky to have figured out this much ;), then f11 again to go back to the regular screen.
#3.Go to 'Paint'-you could use another program I'm sure, just so long as you can 'paste'. Hit ctrl + v (paste)
#4.Save, then go to picnic-again you could probably use your favorite program to crop. You may even have been able to crop in paint and just skip this step. For some reason, I'm on a different computer, and I couldn't figure out the crop tool on this one, so before I got completely frustrated, I went to picnic.
#5 Crop, resize to the size you usually use for the photos on your blog, then save.
#6.Upload to your blog & add all of the links.

Maybe you have a better way-and I know that there are other sites that allow you to upload treasuries... but for me it was easier to do it this way than trying to find them-at least 'til they fix whatever the problem is ;)

~Off to a new fabric store I have never been to~
Have a super Monday!!

Hi,
You could also use this treasury generator for your blog. I use it to post treasuries on my blog. Each item is clickable from your blog page. Here's the link:
