Some words from karinagracejewelry......
Oh my gosh this has got to be the BEST experience I've ever had on Etsy (besides getting sales of course)! For a few days I literally felt like an Etsy celebrity! Waking up to countless convo's and seeing my earrings treasured in SO many magnificent curations was an absolutely wonderful feeling. I must say I'm real proud to be a part of the nonteam. You guys did a tremendous job with your treasuries as well as staying on top of commenting and supporting your fellow nonteamies.
Like past nonteamchallenge winners, I had a ridiculously difficult time judging and narrowing down all 220+ treasuries. I started off with 65 favorites and then narrowed those down to 25. I couldn't possibly edit these 25! It was insane and truly a tough task!
I had a feeling that choosing a simple pair of neutral colored earrings would spark some major creativity and that there would be endless possibilities with themes. Boy was I right! The diversity was awesome! Some collections made me "Oooh and Ahhh" while others had me giggling. Some were filled with romance while others were able to re-tell an entire Shakespearean story! There were lots of weddings and treasures from the sea, but in the end the one that caught my eye and had me coming back for more was, "She Loves to Read Books" by ripecardsandjewelry! This was her very first entry for the nonteamchallenge and she totally nailed it! To me, this collection was perfection! It had a beautiful, soft and dreamy feel! The items were all gorgeous and composed beautifully. Oh! and I loved, loved, loved the theme!
Thank you ALL for your hard work and participation and for making my earrings shine in all your gorgeous collections! I had a blast!
Love and Hugs,
