NonTeam Treasury Challenge #12

Challenge 12 is now closed. Please check back on Tuesday for the winner and on Thursday for the start of the next challenge.

****We're now using a nonteam tag on our items to make including members easier! Please read the details here.****

A creative challenge open to all members of Etsy!
Create a treasury around the Inspiration Item. Win the Challenge and the Inspiration Item for the next Challenge will be something of yours! Who knows how many treasuries will be created with your item!

Everyone is welcome to take part in this Challenge. There's no team to join.
ImpossiblyAlice will be judging the Challenge this week. It's totally up to her as to what she's looking for. Make the best treasury you can and just maybe one of your items will be featured in our next Challenge!

Please read the guidelines carefully before creating your treasury.

Our Inspiration Item is.....
Watercolor Cowl Knit With a Wool Blend from ImpossiblyAlice

Create one treasury using the Inspiration Item above as one item in your treasury. Fill the rest of the treasury with any other items on etsy. Follow etsy's treasury guidelines. Do not include any of your own items. Make your treasury awesome. Add descriptive tags and give it a creative title.

Use etsy's Merchandising Desk ideas when possible. Some possible themes/tags from January's Merchandising Desk -winter fashion, cozy style, outerwear, rich cozy fabrics, cowls, knit accessories, Valentine gifts for her.

You have three days - until Sunday, January 2nd, (noon - eastern) to create your treasury.

Requirements for Participation in this Challenge...
1. Read the guidelines. (Remember - only one entry per person)

2. Include the Inspiration Item in any of the first 12 spots (not as an alternate).

3. Tag your treasury with nonteamchallenge 12. (separated by a space) Be sure that it shows up in this search by the deadline for judging. (If your treasury doesn't show up there, it won't be judged.)

4. Be sure to include a link to the blog or this post in your treasury description. If it doesn't fit into the description, you may leave it in the first comment.

5. Make sure that if you win, you'll be available to judge the next week's Challenge - and report the winning treasury by the next Monday.

6. Support other participants - View/Comment/Click on other treasuries in the Challenge.

* Leave a link to your treasury in our new weekly promo thread by the deadline. Please don't leave a link in our ETC thread.

Based on the treasuries I've already looked over, I just have to say that I'm really glad I'm not choosing the winner! ImpossiblyAlice, your inspiration item is obviously so inspirational you've got a TOUGH weekend ahead!!!
