Treasury, The Beatles and a little history

I don't know how many of you are familiar with making treasuries on Etsy, but I know when I first started on Etsy I kept seeing all these treasuries and my question was: How do you make a treasury?
I went through and taught myself, but boy it's harder than it looks to make a really good, Front page worthy treasury.

I remember my first one I made back in November--it took me probably 2 hours (this was before I thought OH hello-'right click' 'copy link source') Anyways I was pretty proud of myself, but it didn't get a lot of attention right away because I didn't have many followers/wasn't part of any teams etc--then suddenly I started getting all these views and comments and people were saying things like "great fp" and I was like 'What is a FP??'
I don't remember how I figured it out, but I went to the home page and WAHLAH- There was my name! So exciting!!I definitely wanted to make more, but the time was not working for me. And I didn't make any for a while until---Teams.

OK-so I mentioned earlier my love for the teams I joined and how it's really helped me get moving on Etsy, in a small amount of time. This week a participated in a song treasury for my Vintage Explosion team: My song- Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (click to view treasury and check out some other great Vintage shops!) I chose an array of paisley, flowers, geometric patterns, diamonds and bright patterns for an overall psychedelic look.

Some fun facts I learned about the song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds":
-The Beatles claim that the initials of the title 'LSD' are merely a coincidence, that the song is actually named after a drawing Johns son, Julian drew of a girl in his class.(source)
-Lucy passed away in 2009 due to Lupus (Source)
-The skeleton of the earliest specimen of human life was named after the song, Lucy. (source)
