Treasury Challenge #3 Such A Great Turn Out

The theme: Woodland, Forest, Nature

The ending of October found the California Crafters Club of Etsy Team closing up Treasury Challenge #3 with the theme: Woodland, Forest, Nature with such a great turnout. There was such a wide arrange of gorgeous Treasuries submitted for the running, making it very difficult to decide on just one however Curator Lisa Carpenter, owner of NouveauTique should be proud to take the title as winner for this challenge with her Treasury entry called “They Got Lost Along the Way”.

Lisa comes to CCCOE as an artisan of Modern Vintage Jewelry, Art and Gifts creating unique, one of a kind pieces by deconstructing vintage jewelry and using parts to reconstruct her new creative pieces. Here are a few gorgeous tid bits of what she has to offer

An elegant Vintage Rose Locket Necklace

Classy vintage inspired Pearl and Crystal Bracelet

Runners up also entered some very nice Earthy and Bold Treasuries also. PuppyLovePrincess’s ”I Believe In Forest Fairies” features beautiful hues of blues and browns in a swirl of wonderful earthyness. Is that a word? Hahaha and OldeTymeNotions’ bold “Peacock jewel tones in my garden” features blasts of indigo, fushia and teals dancing and enticing you like natures peacock tail. What a great job everyone!

Now that October has come and gone “Let’s Welcome November” which by the way, is the theme for our newest challenge…Treasury Challenge #4! Check out the official entry thread to get all the juicy details and submit your creative fresh new treasuries to be in the running by noon Thursday November 10th and don’t forget to include your current Challenge #3 Winner NouveauTique along with 4 other CCCOE members, at least 1 new member and finally and most importantly entries must use the TAG “3coe4” so that we can all find your treasury when voting for the next winner.

Good luck to everyone and have a wonderfully creative week!
