I'm excited to announce the winners of Challenge week! It was a difficult decision for all of our guest judges, but alas the results are in.
Tuesday, October 18th was our non-prize day. Seventeen gorgeous collections were curated. From there, we decided who won based on several criteria. First, we looked at how many people, who do not belong to our team, added these treasuries to their favorites. We also checked to see how many trending tags, chosen by Etsy, were put into use on the treasury list. Finally, we were interested to find out if the rules were completely followed. The following 2 treasuries were chosen based on these criteria.
The first place winner for Tuesday is Jennifer of The Bracelet Tree! Take a look at this gorgeous treasury she created. Congratulations, Jennifer!
The second place treasury was created by Nancy of NH Quilt Arts Congratulations to you as well, Nancy! Here's a look at Nancy's treasury.
Wednesday brought the first set of treasuries slated to be judged for a possible prize. Participants could use any theme they wanted. We also brought in another team to help us with the voting. The Positivity Team of Etsy was gracious enough to view all 13 treasuries and provide us with 2 winners. Again, we have a Grand Prize and a Second Place prize for these lucky winners.
The Grand Prize winner, with this stunning collection is Keri of Too Cute Custom Crafts! Here's a look at her winning collection. Congratulations, Keri!
And the runner up is, Robin of Jarmfarm! Congratulations, Robin! The judges acknowledged the serious difficulty they had choosing a winner and this one was so close it needed a tie breaking vote! Here's Robin's creation.
Thursday marked the culmination of the week's events. I'm proud to say the Sweet n' Stuff Team was our panel of judges for this final Challenge day! Again, there were so many gorgeous treasuries, that one of the judges remarked that it took her 4 hours to decide on the winner! That's some stiff competition! Not only that, but I had to bring in another outside voter to break a 4-way tie! Many thanks to Catherine of Gallery Zoo Art and Gallery Zoo Art Designs for her help!
Without further adieu, the Grand Prize winner of the day is Sarah of Airy Obsessions! Congratulations, Sarah! Here's a look at her beautiful winning treasury.
The second place prize goes to Kellie of Kell Belle Studio! This is Kellie's gorgeous collection!
Congratulations to all of the winners! Fabulous work on the treasuries for Challenge week, everyone! I can't wait until November's challenge week.
