    They are all great, buy WOW @ #3.

    I don't see how that doesn't win everything.

    I don't think #3 is fair entry. All of the pictures are in 2d with #3 in EC plus #3 is using people as props and taking a picture at the right time. This is a house decorating contest not a who can take a picture at the right time contest.

    I think they (number 3) should get bonus points for thinking outside the box and making extra effort in that case.

    Here is where my house is located. House is in Felucca to the SW of Ice Dungeon. House is set to public, as are the doors.

    It is decorated. I think it is the most clever one entered. I have no idea who designed it. If I had not voted for my own, I would have voted for it.

    #3 is the most clever design and the most cleverly decorated. Yet now it loses. :(

    I'm the culprit of #3 ... didn't mean to ruffle feathers... I was just goofing off with the pond theme, I never thought it would be controversial that I snapped the photo in EC or had my friends participate in the photo (there was nothing in the rules against it and it gave us an awesomely fun project for the night :)) On a side note I appreciate all the positive feedback, means a lot :)

    I think Santa's Sweet Shoppe is false advertisement and as such is not a fair entry. There are no sweets visible in the entire picture, and any other pictures posted should not be considered since you were only allowed to submit a SINGLE picture, which was actually the only rule in the whole contest.

    You are correct Paragon, only one picture was allowed to be entered for the standard judging by EM Taweret, along with a rune (which was all I submitted for the ACTUAL contest) so she could also see the inside. As stated by EM Bennu above, this is the "People's Choice", which is separate from the standard judging.

    Cupcake you don't have to justify your behavior to me. If your boyfriend is allowed to post messages disparaging other entries, I want to be able to correct his inaccuracies.

    Behavior?? I was simply pointing out your inaccuracies. Seems like there might be bad blood here... and I'm not sure what that has to do with me. So go ahead and keep that between you 2. I never asked him to post anything, and I wish he hadn't, and this is exactly why. I have nothing against house #3, in fact I think it looks amazing. I don't need to justify anything, especially posting a picture of a house that I spent many hours designing and wanted everyone to be able to see the inside of. Excuse me for being proud of my work and it ruining your day. I'll make sure it never happens again.

    MOAH I think number three was the most well thought out design. Its not just a buncha rares scattered around (do these red squiggley lines go away)(there it is again!). I think it is the best looking most original thing that somebody could have done.

    The subtle changes in the colors of the gozas in #3 to look like ice in the EC show real talent.
    Well done to everyone! I tried to get the energy to enter and failed at my festivus deco (i couldn't find an aluminum pole)
    Kudos!

    House number 5 has my vote, I think the little toy figures on the wood working bench is great, and I especially love the sleigh and deer on the roof.

    o_O Yep, had a friend on the receiving end of said ICQ petitioning... Pretty disappointing... Not a "hey go and vote on stratics" but "hey go and vote for #-" Thank you EM's for the event! Had a lot of fun reconnecting with my inner deco-ness lol. Congratulations to the winner of Peoples Choice!
    * Had to edit that, was feeling a bit un-Christmas-y this morning, my apologies.

    #3 won, "Pond Skaters Welcome".

    It has giant dragons outside the house declaring it the winner, like in Arya's picture.
