How To Take A Screenshot Of An Etsy Treasury To Be Shared on Social Media Sites



I have been asked by some readers how I create the screenshot of the Etsy treasuries I curate. For example, I curated this "Handmade in Purple" treasury last night. Here is a screenshot that I created and shared on Facebook and some other social media sites.



Now, there are many ways in which you can do this. I will explain them all. However, the way that I find to be the most easiest is to simply press Ctrl + P on your keyboard. A screen to print the entire page should come up. It should look similar to this picture.



Next I use Lightshot screenshot tool to highlight and save the area of the page I want, which is the treasury itself. Lightshot also give you the option to upload the area you highlighted as well instead of saving it as a picture. If you choose this option, you will receive a link for your uploaded picture. Simply share the link with what ever social media site you are using. However, be careful not to forget to add the link to the treasury page itself. The link from Lightshot is only to the picture of the treasury.

Instead of using the link, I find it easier to manually upload the picture from my computer (others may find the link easier). For example, I manually upload the picture to my Facebook page and then provide the link to the treasury page in the description area. This is just my preference though.

Another way to take a screenshot is to create the treasury using the Brittany's Best app. This app will save 16 items by providing a box or chest (see below) next to the "favorite heart" on Etsy. Once you have 16 items simply press create, and your treasury is created automatically without having to flip through pages. Once the treasury is created, look under "curator tools" on the bottom right column of the page. You have the option to save the screen using the app. Plus you can send notifications to the featured shops in one message.



Do you know of another way to create a screenshot? I would love to hear your comments.

Life Lessons





Hey Everyone,

I know it's been a while since I have written a post. Therefore, I thought I would update you on what is going on in my life. The past two months of my life have been very complex and demanding. It has been a time of uncertainty, defeat, desperation, enlightenment and of self actualization. It has truly has been one of the most difficult times in my life, and the end is no where in sight at this time. One thing after another, with no time to rest.

I won't get into detail of what happened however I would like to ask you all a favor, and pray for my father. He is currently sitting in a hospital bed after a major heart attack last week. The prognosis is not looking good, and I am not ready for my father to be taken from me. If you could do that I would really appreciate it so much.

I will keep you updated, but for now every second is a gift and I must use it wisely.

Check Out the Sale in My Shop & Enter to Win a $25 Etsy Gift Card from Bracelets By Jen


Hello Everyone,
I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather we have been having the past few days. I know I have. I'm so glad spring is here. For me it is such a wonderful, cheerful time of year. Which brings me to another joyful thing happening in my life right now. As you all know in December of 2012, I opened a shop on Etsy called Bracelets By Jen. The first years was not the best, however we all need to start somewhere. This year has been better, especially over the last month or so. I finally am starting to feel as though all my hard work is paying off. Instead of one customer a month, I am having on average 1-3 sales a week. Also, on my mother's birthday I had six sales. I could not believe it. I can't even begin to tell you the joy I felt. I am sharing my Etsy story with you because there was a time I was going to close shop because I was having no sales. Plus when I read the forums on Etsy, I am always seeing a new seller ready to give up. Well my advice to all you new sellers is DON'T GIVE UP! Hang in there, and you will see progress.

I am not where I would like to be yet, however I have made great progress with my shop. Therefore, as my way of saying thank you to all my wonderful customers & fans now through May 31, 2014 I am having a sale in my shop, Bracelets By Jen. Everything in my shop is 10% off the regular price including custom orders. There is no coupon needed, as all my items have already been marked down.

Another milestone that I will soon be hitting is 200 "likes" on my Facebook page. I had planned on doing the giveaway after I hit the 200 mark, but I decided to just have the sale and giveaway together. To enter the giveaway either visit my Facebook page, or enter using the widget below.

Good Luck!!!!

However, in just a little over four months I have surpassed last years sales!! =) It really make me feel like my shop is starting to take off.

Well it has payed off!! I really want to thank all my wonderful fans, my friends and family who have helped and supported me to this point. I would also like to give a special that you to the members of The All Handmade By Me Team on Etsy. I can't say enough about how helpful everyone on this team is. I am honored to be a leader of this fantastic team.
