Treasury Thanks: Look to the Skies... TEAM EFA AUG CHALLENGE

August seems miles away already... and yet it's not long past. Time flies when having fun & I have been busy... like a bee buzzing in a hurry from one plant to the next!

I've been on the computer a lot lately (you know how that goes): blogging, listing products, chatting & promoting in ArtFire's forums, promoting Team EFA's Charity of the Month, writing emails; making animal theme Silk Tapestry Boxes; and I have ALSO been processing fruit for dehydration or sauce making- nothing fancy just plain and simple for future embellishing. Next year... I will need to be more ready for harvest as I am starting to see an increase in fruit production here at Twilight !

During the month of August, Team EFA's Monthly Challenge theme was Look to the Skies. The Treasury below was created with the first 16 entries...

Entering the Etsy for Animals Monthly Challenge is a fun way to participate in the EFA street team. Every month there is an opportunity for EFA members to submit one of their listings to be featured on the EFA Challenge blog. Each month has a specific theme which the listing must reflect in some way. The Challenge blog provides a lovely display of products presented by our artists & suppliers... not only is it a wonderful marketing prospect for our EFA sellers but we get to find out how those members help our animal friends.

Thanks to the EFA Challenge team

for all their dedicated hard work !

This is what I choose to enter for the LOOK TO THE SKiES Challenge:

"Golden Dragonfly, a small unique handmade decorative Silk Tapestry Box, made of banana silk yarn, perfect for storing a memory keepsake ! Golden Dragonfly is a sweet gentle fiber arts container, with a lid of its own, featuring variegated vegan banana silk yarn in lilac, blue and mint green pastel colors. It is embellished with a gold metal dragonfly button."

August is usually a busy time in the Twilight skies as the Dragonflies that come here to mate are hovering and doing their yearly dances. They like being above the orchards and seem to congregate over the Winter Spiral, the Enchanted Forest and the Spiral Garden. For whatever reason, not as many came this year... perhaps it was because of the wildfire burnt mountain side ?

The skies are still a beautiful summer blue and the temperatures are averaging around 100F at the moment... its a delicious dry heat which feels quite manageable so long as I dont have to stand in the full sun for too long :) Evidently, this is the coolest summer we've had since 1967 !

  1. Great article and treasury!
    Sorry to hear about the dragonflies, maybe they will come back in full force next year!

  2. Viewing this in the condensed version allows me to see how similar so many of the colors are and how nicely they all fit together!

  3. I would love to be a dragonfly hovering over Twilight's wonderful gardens and spirals! (Hmmm... gives me an idea for a painting.) Of course I'd just love to come to Twilight and spend some time with you processing fruit and making sauces. As long as there is limited humidity, I think I could stand the heat. :)

    Anyhow, that EFA treasury is just lovely with its mix of colors and finds.


Please leave a positive comment :)
