I may do a Wizard of Oz scene down the road, Nikki...

I had an idea in mind (wicked forest on the left, a field with a yellow brick road traveling off through the middle, partial Emerald City on the right distance, with a hot air balloon in the middle right distance (I found some really cool, full-size ones)... and, one day, I think I'd like to build it <3

...however, for now, I've just been recuperating from DOTY, heheheheh.

I've been resting, catching up on some other real life things, planning my move, and working on my combo build for the ICreate mini challenges.

In the meantime, I truly am very, very proud of both you and Marie - going through all 8 rounds of DOTY as participants, and you, Nikki, for making it to the Final round.

No matter the outcome, it is a real, true, and amazing accomplishment <3 <3 <3



Thank you, Crissi, for my beautiful signature <3

As soon as I saw Minena's photo, I understood that she would win.
She wrote that it took 10 years before she won so she spent a while.

I've been doing it since it first started too but always got eliminated quite early on. The first few times I was out in round 2, in 2015 I got to round 5 so last year wanted to make it to round 6 and got to round 8. I was however still amazed to get to the final this year.
As soon as I saw minena's entry I knew it would win as it had that WOW factor. I had wanted to do the same thing myself but it looked wrong because I couldn't get the grey sky. I didn't think of using a mural and don't know if I would have found the right thing anyway. So I changed the house to the Tin mans cottage and went for that instead, but it didn't have that 'WOW' factor it needed to win.

Not sure about next year though will just have to wait and see.

I agree with the WOW factor at Minena because that was what I said when I saw the picture.
I went out after 5 round last year and this I came to round 8 but I will be with next year because it's exciting when you can build things that you do not build in the usual cases. My favorite this year was Titanic.

Nikki your persistence is to be applauded, a lot would have given up a long time ago. I think when it comes around next year you will be hard pressed not to enter, especially as you came so close this year. I have to say your Beach picture was a stand out, it had that wow factor that Minena's had in the final. Makes you think if the categories where switched around, the outcome could have been totally different.

Glad to know you will be an entrant next year Marie!

Ohhh Sam.....no no no I couldn't handle the pressure computersmi I think TJ would be a great entrant for DOTY!

I was thinking back to the first DOTY, and I think Hunii was the first winner, at least she won one. She was an amazing decorator

Lorry I am like you. Once you turn on the pressure to create something specific, my creativity flies out the window. I would not be able to handle the pressure that goes with it. And that is why I have so much appreciation for those who did enter and who endured all that went with it..... they are to be applauded.

I will sit in my own little corner and just enjoy whatever comes my way.

I agree that TJ has the talent for sure. So next year, God willing, we might have four cherries entering the DOTY.

Awww, thanks girls for the vote of confidence! But No! I don't like pressure and actually I can't really decorate very well, literally my houses, always end up looking the same, my daughters call them boring, because there's no colors, it's all whites, beiges, tans. And, I don't do well with small spaces that have walls (my playable houses usually are open floor plan with only 4 walls in the bedroom and bathroom, I don't like to decorate with the walls down, and walls get in my way and irritate me) so when I stage a room for my sets there's only 3 walls and the angle I want to take a pic for has no wall so I get a clear shot LOL

I will enter next year... Marie and Nikki, please both of you enter...

I understand why TJ, Lorry, and Anita don't want to...

...however, we could run a similar thing while DOTY is going on... JFF's :D

If anyone wants to do JFF's with the same requirements for DOTY participants (no pressure to do each round, just the ones people feel like doing), that might be fun for all of our cherries and bring additional support for those of us willing to go through the DOTY pressure cooked LOL

What do you think?

Suzanne - I think that would be a wonderful idea! And, maybe without a deadline too, so there's not pressure, just use the guidelines from the DOTY as the rules for the challenge
