Winning Treasury Challenge #109

Some words from ModGenesDesigns....

Okay, so I have to admit that when Sarah messaged me that I won the challenge last week I squealed so loud that my husband thought that I had seen a mouse! I love this challenge and was honored to have been chosen as the winner by Sinead from IrishViking designs. Thank you again so much, Sinead!! It has been an awesome experience.
What keeps me coming back to the Nonteam Challenge is that I get to be a part of an unbelievably talented group of people. I love that these challenges are designed to inspire us and motivate us to create diverse concepts and that was exactly what I got to really see this week.
Even knowing how creative group this group is I was still blown away by what I saw. I picked this piece because one, I thought it would be an entertaining inspiration piece plus, who doesn’t need to sometimes let go of inhibitions and have a little fun, especially around the holidays. And two, I hoped that it would inspire people on many levels which is what really seemed to happen. I loved seeing all the different translations and takes and looked forward to opening each treasury. Some of the treasuries made me laugh and had a wonderful simplicity to them while others were provocative and really pushed the boundaries to make you think. Some of you used bold dashes of color to tell your story while others went with soft tones that had an almost magical feel to them. It also seemed to be a week of personal accomplishments within this team and I got to celebrate new babies, a daughter’s new journey, and an elephant filled collaboration from a mother and her daughter.
When I first started looking at all these treasuries I had about 60 favorites and after narrowing it down to about 30 there was one that kept me coming back. It was both dark and seductive and had such a mysterious quality to it that it continuously drew me in and made wonder what exactly happened ‘Round midnight.
The winner of this challenge is Mindy Grusin from 626 designs with her treasury ‘Round midnight:
Thank you so much to everyone for letting me celebrate, drink champagne, and dance on (quite a few!) tables with you! It has been an honor.
