Drum roll please! And now it is official: The inaugural contest of my #BROKEtheINTERNET polyvore group -- 2016 #Valentine'sDay giftguide-- is over and the winners are in. (applause!!! big ones are in order) No, I don't have a presenter and and envelope but I have one better ...I am posting the amazing creations of all 12 Winners and the 3 runners-up in their full glory plus bonus selections.
So without much ado the WINNERS of the 2016 Valentine Day's Gift-Guide contest are:
Yes, I did expect that it would be a lot of fun to have a contest on this subject and also fully expected that I would be blown away by the creativity and keen sense of style of my poly-friends (after all this is polyvore, babeee!!!). All of my expectations, however, fell short on two things. First, the sets, I mean all the sets-- were JUST SPECTACULAR (as you can see). I don't say that lightly. If you have ever spent more than 10 minutes on polyvore you know that along with the stop-you-in-your-tracks sets there are a lot of sets that are just average. Well, in this contest every single set (EACH OF THE 172 submitted) was a standout. Thank you guys for being so creative and inspirational!!!
So continuing with the winners:
And back to the Winners:
Presenting BROKEtheINTERNET bonus: three runners-up and one additional selection in each of the following categories: (1) artistic merits, (2) technical difficulty, and (3) off-topic favorite. An explanation is in order: Polyvore does not allow for runners-up or for winners in special categories, so I am anointing those here. (Wooohh the power of moderating .....)
Runners up in the 2016 V-day gifts guide contests are:@ bonadea007, @fullerflowers, @luxxdesign
For technical difficulty I am voting for:
and for in the slightly off-topic favorite category our winner is:
