  13. Congrats to all - they're all beautiful :-)

  14. Congrats everyone! It was really hard to narrow this down to 10, they were all so great, so don't think yours wasn't good enough if it wasn't included in the 10.

  15. Don't they all look so fantastic sitting up there? I am glad we have the video with all the banners displayed because the effort and creativity presented by everyone who entered, is out standing.
    Congratulations to those nominated in the top ten. Well done.

  16. Congratulations to all the top 10.
    You did an awesome job.
    Everyone who entered did a great job.
    Doing video's is a great idea.
    That might be good for another time like
    a contest or something.?

  17. Congrats to all 10, It is very hard to choose only one, all are wonderful

  18. I don't understand why you are "randomly changing the banners every two weeks after that." Aren't we voting on a new, permanent banner? If you're just going to rotate the top 10, why are we voting, at all?

    ReplyDelete
  19. thanks , Virginia for asking this!! I wondered the same. Is the vote to pick the best out of the top 10? And if so, why? ** I'm confused....LOL**

    ReplyDelete
  20. We will be rotating them and then going back to the first one..That is if it is okay with you. Why sweat the small things !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Joel....it was only a question. Wasn't a case of "sweating anything"

    I can't speak for Virginia...but I was confused over the poll. If the banners were going to be rotated anyway.then why do a vote? Why not just ROTATE all entries? Do you see where one MIGHT like to ask to get a clearer picture? sorry!!

  22. I started this group for a fun thing for people to do. I plan on keeping it that way. This is not a soapbox had I known two weeks ago and several hours of my time later it would have ended up that way. I would not have had a banner contest or video. Please remember we have an open door policy.

    ReplyDelete
  23. And it is.... as a matter of fact, of all the groups I'm in, this is my absolute favorite. You did a great job with the banner contest....

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm sure it's been a lot of hard work. Seriously, it was a question arising out of curiosity, perhaps a little ambiguity. Nothing serious. You picked out 10 great ones, and my favorites are among them. I can't ask for anything more.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think it's a great idea to rotate them. So many people put so much time and effort into these. I know I, for one am excited that no matter what the outcome, i'll have my time up there. I think it's great encouragement and I certainly had fun doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Joel, thank you for all your hard work.. Now about that finger, wha'cha expecting to find up there?

    ReplyDelete
  27. They all look great and the video is awesome! Great job, Joel :-)

    I think there's been a bit of a learning curve here. First we agreed that it would be a great idea to have contest for a new permanent banner, but then when ALL of the entries were awesome there was a bit of, "Aw, heck, let's just use them all and rotate them."

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ah, it's tight between Vic and Lanie, will we see these two friends battle it out to the finish line?
    A nail biter for sure lol...
