Winner of the First Monthly Challenge


The winner of our first ever monthly challenge is La Paperie with her Autumn Handbound Leather Journal. She received 104 votes out of 237 total votes! Congratulations! It is a beautiful book, and well deserving of the number of votes that it received.


The runner up was My Handbound Books with her entry: The Celebrating Autumn Journal . She received 74 votes. Congratulations to you as well!
.

It looks like the book binding members of the team took the lion's share of the votes! Be warned though, that the other members of the team are taking this as a personal challenge to make sure that another landslide victory doesn't go to the book binders next time! Watch for the details of the next monthly challenge coming soon, and expect some absolutely stunning entries.

Thank you to all the voters and to those who left comments. Your encouragement and kind words about our work means a lot to us.

And now, on to the draw for that yummy lip balm, and the cool etsy badges. Everyone who left a comment had their name thrown into a hat (ok, it was actually an empty yogurt container). The winner of the lip balm is:

Nancy!

We'll be contacting you to find out where we can mail your prize.
