Winners of the Hearts Only Challenge

There is so much talent out there and  I   am  so honored you came here to show off!!!

 Be sure to go through the links and  find  some  inspiration for yourself.

 Our guest judge, Barbara from The Everyday Home, had  the  most  difficult job  picking the winners. I think she did a  great  job!

This is what Barbara had to say about  her  CSI judging experience:


Dee graciously invited me to be a Guest Judge at her Linky Party.  When she asked,

my first thought was “how hard can it be?”  Yea.  Famous last words.  I have decided

that I don’t think I would like being a judge at the Olympics.  I think it would be

very hard to be critical of participants day in and day out and finally having to pick a

winner. Judging for the Hearts Only Challenge was very hard. But, I loved the theme

of this challenge.  Lots of different projects and inspiration – and even some I have

never seen and now can’t wait to try.

Thanks Dee for allowing me to play judge for this event.

Let’s see how she did.

 And the winners  are…….Drum   roll  Please!

 Judge’s comments in BOLD!

#11  Heart Quilt by Dejong Dream House Blog.
I don’t quilt, but I have a tremendous appreciation for anyone who does.

This quilt is an act of love, and the heart design makes it even more special.

I love the reversible pattern design.

# 1, Burlap Pillow from My Paper Craze Blog.  
I just love burlap. I love pillows.

Putting the two together makes my heart sing.  I love all the varied sizes of hearts

on this pillow.

#3, Mini Heart Banner from The Ever Budding Bear Blog.

Mini Heart Banner

I have seen and also made my fair share of banners, but I have to say this is one

of the most original takes I have seen in a while. I love the various layers and

the vintage feel.

#9, Heart Soaps from Hoopla Palooza Blog.

I too just discovered the fun art of making handmade soaps, and I love

her whimsical take of adding small trinkets and sprinkles (fun!) to the


#10, Heart Art by The Ever Budding Bear.

Love this unique idea of embroidering on the burlap and framing it makes it

even sweeter.

#14, Valentine Cookies by Priscillas Blog

All I can say is wow!  These are more than cookies they are little works of art.

And I am not talking about just a few, I am talking about a LOT of cookies.  I

was totally impressed and can only imagine how time consuming this must

have been.  This is another beautiful act of love.

From our Judge:
So those are my honorable mentions.  (Dee said I could only have about 5

or everyone would have been “rewarded.”)  🙂 Great job everyone!
