After helping others host the challenge last year, this is the first challenge I have been able to judge. The monthly judge selects the medium and the winners. I had several other judges tell me how hard it was to pick two winners and I always thought to myself, oh it can't be that hard. Ha! When you pick your favorite medium CORK and see so many great ideas entered, it does become difficult to select two winners. We had wine cork jewelry, cork hair bows, wine cork boats, and toy cork snakes to name a few of the cool entries!!!
As hard as it was...
Upcycled Wine Cork Necklace by JaneKoopman
JaneKoopman creates earth inspired jewelry and cards on Etsy. I love her entry into this month's challenge. Beautiful and realistic for every day wear. I really loved this piece.
Cork Tree Recycled Journal by PrairiePeasant
Prairie Peasant sells ecofriendly journals, cards, and envelopes on Etsy. I love how cleverly Laura used thrifted cork placemats to create the cover! And the tree is just the perfect touch!
See, I told you it was hard to pick! ;)
And she didn't win anything, but I have to give a shout out to Sweet Someday!
I like how Sarah shared her success and failure in her cork blog post. Her idea to adjust the color of her wine corks was really cool!
You can see ALL the amazing cork entries on our challenge's Pinterest board!
March's challenge is starting soon! Team members can look for Endure Designs medium selection on our discussion board.
