The Winner Is....

We're almost ready for our first Challenge!

There were 89 comments left on this page to enter the contest for the first Inspiration Item. was used to choose a number randomly from 1 to 89.
The number chosen was 24.

The 24th comment was posted by AwakenJournaling!
She may choose any item to be used as our first Inspiration Item in our first Challenge! She will also be judging the Challenge on whatever criteria she chooses.

Check back tomorrow to see just what the item is and to start creating your treasury(ies)! If you win the Challenge, the next Inspiration Item will be yours!

Congrats to AwakenJournaling!

The plan is to have a new Challenge begin every Thursday. We'll have Thursday through Monday to create our treasuries. The judge will have until Wednesday to judge and report the winning treasury to Dotty. The new winner will be notified and choose the new Inspiration Item. Then on Thursday we'll begin again. You'll find out the winner and new Inspiration. The next Challenge begins.

Well, that's the plan for now. Let's see how this first Challenge goes and take it from there.

Can't wait to see all of the treasuries inspired by AwakenJournaling!

I wonder how many there will be! Care to take a guess? Leave it in the comments below. Just for fun, we'll see who's the closest!

OK, so I get the whole 'non' team idea you're going for and that's great, but that name is just ridiculous.

First of all because you are still a team.

Secondly, that name is just disrespect to other teams. It's uncalled for, and comes across as kinda mean.

Anyway, good luck with your 'non team' team.

Dotty said...

I'm really sorry you feel that way. I mean absolutely no disrespect to other teams. I'm on two other real teams.

The point of it being a non team is so there's no commitment. No applying. No having to join. Different people will be featured in the treasuries all the time. I think off of that is great! Sorry you disagree.

And yes, the name is ridiculous. It's all in fun.

Dotty said...

I meant that "I think all of that is great!"

Meh. Never take criticism from anonymous seriously. Not worth responding to.

I think this is a great idea and I'm delighted AwakenJournaling won, her handmade books are wonderful.

I'm gonna guess there'll be 125 treasuries made. =D

I've put the button on my Tumblr blog and made a post about it, which was tweeted.

I'll be more involved after the family goes home from their visit to me. I'll support the effort as time permits, til then.

I'm really excited about all of this! Congrats to Awakenjournaling. I think this project is a great idea! Its really working, this week there have been almost a dozen new treasuries featuring my work because of our nonteam treasuries!

I did the random number thing and got 18, but that's way too low, I'm sure there will be way more treasuries made than that!

Dotty said...

Thanks Debba! You think there will be that many??

Thanks Lazy! was used just to get the winner of the Inspiration Item.

I'm going to guess 50 treasuries for this challenge.

By the way, when I came up with this whole idea, it was to spread the treasury love without the negativity. Not only is this nonteam not meant as any disrespect to any real team, it's not meant as any disrespect to any real treasury team. They've got something good going on. They're featured a lot. You've never seen me in one of those forum threads complaining about them.

Alright. That's all I'll say on it.

This NonTeam is Perfect for me and seems to be for others. Thank you Dotty for starting all of this-I am THRILLED to be apart of it!

The NonTeam name and description got my attention and is why I'm a nonmember!
