New Adventure Team Treasury Challenge

Oh Canada!

The Oh Canada Team is trying out a fun new team challenge idea using Treasury East! This fun activity is designed to bring new exposure to our team and individual shops, as well as bring us all together in the spirit of beautiful treasuries!

The contest is open to anyone, and we invite all Etsy members to participate, even if you’re not an Oh Canada Team member.

The winner will receive the opportunity to select the theme for our next challenge. It could be an idea, a color, or even an item from their shop, or a favorite shop, to be featured in our next Treasury Challenge.

The Rules

1. Make a beautiful treasury in Treasury East.

2. Your treasury must incorporate the challenge’s theme, and include at least 8 Oh Canada Team members. Check out our team roster for members, or search for the tag OhCanadaTeam on Etsy.

3. You must include the words “OCT Challenge” somewhere in your treasury’s title.

4. You must tag your treasury with “ohcanadateam” and “OCT challenge

5. In your treasury’s description, let viewers know that it is an entry in an Oh Canada Team challenge, invite them to join, and provide a link to our blog.

6. If any item in your treasury sells or is removed, please replace it with another item from the same shop.

7. Please do not use your own shop(s) in your entry.

How to Enter

To enter your treasury, share a link to it in the comments section of this post.

The deadline for the “New Adventure” challenge is Tuesday, August 10th. Our judges will select 6 finalists, and voting will begin on Thursday, August 12th.

Voting for this challenge will close the following Tuesday, and the winner will be announced along with our new challenge theme on Thursday, August 19th.

All entries will be archived in our Oh Canada Team Treasury Gallery.

For the Guys

The Theme

In the spirit of our first trying-it-on-for-size treasury challenge, the theme for this challenge will be about new adventures, fresh starts, and exciting beginnings. You can interpret the theme any way that you are inspired, and get curating!

Challenge Helpers

Not ready to make a treasury yet? We will also be looking for guest judges to help narrow down the finalists. If you would like to participate, let us know in the comments section of this post, along with a link to your shop. The first two volunteers will be contacted by our Treasury Challenge admins.

Following the contest, we’ll open a discussion on our Facebook page about how it went. That way if we need to tweak anything, or if any concerns come up, we can get them ironed out before we begin the next Oh Canada Team Treasury Challenge.

If you have any questions, contact our Team Oh Canada admins.

Good luck!

Hi Everyone

Here is my treasury "Pure Morning"

Each item I found would be the beginning of something. The items which you start from. So unique that you'd have to start with them...Pick one of the pillows...then dress a room around it. Adorn yourself with one of the jewellery items...and you'll have to dress yourself around it.

Thanks for taking a look
