♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ Always Something There to Remind Me ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬

♥links to items are at bottom of today's post ♥

Funny how inspiration hits you... I'm rockin' it out to Naked Eye "Always Something There to Remind Me" and my first thought is... how can I make a treasury out of this?   This treasury actually took a completely different turn from what I expected.  I started out searching clocks, calendars... the timepieces that remind you of where you have to be when.  I'm much happier with this treasury.  It reminds me I need to be here now, don't forget to breathe, because one of these days I'll be dead.

Something about this... just keeps coming back to me.  "Always something there to remind me..." I started this collection as an etsy treasury on July 25.  As all treasuries do, it took time to curate.  This one, especially.  As soon as I heard the song, I  ◠knew◡  that was going to be the focus of my next treasury, and I started on it as soon as the dishes were washed and the kitchen was clean.  As I say above, I started out searching "time" items, but I kept being drawn to the phrases that remind me of life.  Be here now, relax, breathe, give love, smile, call your parents, laugh.  

Anyway, I completed the treasury, clicked save, and got a "save error".  Huh?  Tried it again, same thing.  Shoot.  I cleared the treasury and tried again.  And again.  Same, same.  What is it about this treasury that needs to be shared?  I'm not sure, but it meant enough to me that I contacted etsy support.  They suggested clearing my cookies, updating my browser, and using a different browser.  Same, same, same. I have curated two different treasuries since then with no problem.

What is it about this treasury that needs to be shared?  Today, I'm still thinking about that treasury, and the message it has, and tried yet again to curate it.  Still the same error.  Etsy support thinks it may be one of the picked items that's causing the error.  But it keeps coming back to me, and I have to share it. (Okay, you can call me a little crazy if you want.)

So here it is.  I am treasurizing♥ it here.  (I think I just invented a word... treasurizing?!)  I hope these gentle reminders are just what you needed today... and that you are now filled with Soul Energy.

It's about the journey.
