On Winners & Comments

Hello Everyone!

Another weekend is here!

This weekend we are starting with something new on our blog!

Before we get to that, I want to share a few thoughts.

If anyone of you ever wondered why you don't get a comment from each of the DT members, I want to dare you to go and have a look at about 20 projects of any challenge posted. It takes a little bit of time, yes, but we love using the time to view all your wonderful projects and comment on your projects. The problem is that after we have viewed all those fabulous creations, we are so inspired that we get totally side tracked and just want to play with our stuff! And that really chews up our time. Not mentioning then wanting to go out and get more stuff to play with...LOL.

What we have done is allocated one or 2 numbers to each DT member to visit & comment on, i.e. 3, 13, 23 or similar. In this way your entry gets visited by at least 1 DT member. Of course, if we have the time, we visit more than the ones assigned to us. So rest assured, we do visit your entries.

When it comes to picking a winner, we sit with the same dilemma! You guys rock with each challenge, and it is totally impossible to pick a winner. Also, tastes differ and styles differ. I just love CAS cards, ATC's and recycling, so projects in those styles will definitely draw my attention first. And that will be unfair to all you talented people who create those wonderful shabby chic, vintage or ultra feminine cards. Then I'm not even touching on those of you that have a knack to work with a variety of patterned papers and fabulous constructions, or any other styles that are in vogue.

So you can see, using a randomizer or pick-out-of-the-hat is really the fairest way to pick a winner for the prize. 

Sitting with this dilemma, we thought of a way to give credit to all of you who really put in an effort to enter our challenges. Really, you are all so special to us and we appreciate it, you are keeping us going and growing!

From this week onwards, I will be hosting:

Saturday Spotlight

I am so excited because we are starting with the challenge that I hosted last week :

The Design Team will pick their favourite(s) from all the entries of the previous week's challenge.  We will then make a decision who to put in the spotlight on Saturday!
All you have to do is make sure you are a Follower of the blog,
Pinterest, Flickr or like us on Facebook.
We will do the hard work of visiting your blogs and get totally inspired!

I almost forgot, our Spotlight(s) will get a lovely badge to display on their blog. 
The super talented Chrissie designed all the fabulous badges.
Keep those entries coming, you never know when you might show up in our spotlight!

The first Saturday Spotlight is HERE!
