Let's give a big round of applause to Chelsea of SevenWhiteRabbits for her winning treasury collection Even Nice Girls need a Little Black Dress!  Our theme for last week's challenge was "Forget the Naughty, Who's Been Nice" and it centered around holiday gift guides.  Flow in a treasury collection is key and Chelsea has just got this one to sing!  A great balance between dark and light, but wait...did you catch her play on words?  We just love how she incorporated the theme of the challenge so creatively into her own title and then curated a stunning collection around it.  A real crowd pleaser Chelsea - Congratulations!

Our Etsy Style Guide Challenges have really grown into a fun team event - a place where Etsy shop owners can share their favorite items together in a curated group.  Nichole of littlebrownpen was the winner from our November challenge - which means one of her items got included in the top row of this challenge.  Did you see the variety of items people used from her shop?  As the winner of our December challenge, an item from Chelsea's Etsy shop SevenWhiteRabbits will be featured in the top row during our next challenge come January 2012.   But more than a challenge, these events are a great opportunity for people who love Etsy to come and get a quick glance at what's new + fresh.  We have the inside edge on Etsy, so you can come here knowing you'll find a creative selection to choose from.   

***

Now - talk about creative!  We had a total of 73 submissions with so many wonderful collections to choose from.  It's never an easy job to choose just one, so we always like to highlight our favorite picks.  First, let's begin with this collection by Kelly of 88editions titled For moi, I've been good, I swear ;)  Her title certainly put a smile on our face, but we also really enjoyed her use of the warm earth tones to pull her collection together.  We know you've been good Kelly and we'll be sure to pass the word on to Santa!

One of the most enjoyable parts of this challenge is to see how different people interpret the challenge theme.  We both participate in the challenge as well and so we're going through the process of thinking on different ways to put together a treasury.  The variety of choices and arrangements is really inspiring!  Kathy of lovintagefinds put together a clean + modern collection with a soothing palette in greens and blues.  And the title is perfection!  Forgive the Naughty and Surprise the Nice - beautifully done Kathy!

And our final top pick is from Jenn of Palimpsestic who submitted a collection with a most clever title,  Nice Legs!  Jenn clearly has a great sense of humor and often entertains us with her treasury themes.  Creative?  Oh, absolutely.   And it's not just any ol' grouping of legs, but 'nice' legs - a wonderful remix of our challenge theme!  You're smiling - if not laughing, right?  Because legs are not limited to only us human beings, but animals and wait a minute...legs on a chair as well!  We just could not resist this one Jenn!!
