    Nice idea Sara!

    Seriously, don't forget Saint Paddy's Day, and Easter too. And maybe even... April Fool's Day! [​IMG]

    Container art contests for the big holidays... could be a new event series. [​IMG]

    What wonderful ideas, Nok! The April Fool's really makes me curious .. how many trapped boxes would we have to judge? [​IMG]

    The response to these contests has been outstanding! And, we do plan to continue with them as long as there is interest.

    Just a bit ago, we received another contribution to our Valentine contest [​IMG] ... Lil Debi tossed a million gold into the pot. Thanks, Debi!

    Wait a minute, I did drop it off. Did the items shift or something?

    Not only did they shift, it would seem the items completely transformed into something else. You must have used a bugged container. [​IMG]

    Ok folks ...there are only 4 days left to submit your entries. Get the mouse pointers moving if I can come up with and entry I know you can too .You do not have to be a romantic for ideas because you never know what will please the judges on judgment day. [​IMG]

    I have been trying for a week to get together with a player from Japan to accept an entry. Once I have that one, all entries will be set public for viewing. Sorry about the delay ... they contacted me in plenty of time for the deadline, it's just been difficult to work out time zone differences.

    ah...understandable...perhaps maybe letting us peek into the containers? [​IMG] I just love looking at other people's deco

    All entries are in, and the containers are set for public viewing. Still waiting on 2 judges to cast their ballots before we can post winners.

    I think you are refering to my entry...."Gems are a girl's best friend". If so, Thank you!
