Etsy Front Page!

Today one of my Etsy Treasuries made the Front Page!

The Treasury was inspired by having seen Tim Burton's new "Alice In Wonderland" movie last weekend. I am not much of a fantasy movie kind of gal, but went for the sole purpose of watching Johnny Depp for 2 hours. I could not have been more delighted and charmed with all of the characters! With silly orange hair and wicked, weird green eyes Johnny Depp is awesome. He never fails to deliver in my book.

Colleen Atwood did an amazing job of making each character come to life with unique make-up and costuming. I discovered that Hatters were often "mad" as they used toxic mercury to cure the felt for their hats. Notice how the Mad Hatter's clothes colors, hair and accent change along with his mood. The enormous digitally enhanced head on the Red Queen was brilliant as were all of the special effects.

Bravo Tim Burton!


  1. I haven't seen the movie yet - I figure I'll get around to it when I can get it on Netflix. I love the crativity this movie has inspired!
    (psst, there's something for you on my blog!)

  2. Congratulations on making it to the front page of etsy. Your photographs are so beautiful they should always be there. Do you think it helped your sales? My Watercolor site had a painting on the front for Cinco de Mayo I received a lotttt of visits but no sales. it is good exposure.
