Contest Winners and Big Changes are Coming!

Contest Winners and Big Changes are Coming!


Posted by Alicia Sell

I am a little late getting this post together because we have been making some behind-the-scenes changes here at Button Jar.  The first big change is that we migrated to a new hosting platform that will allow us to do some more exciting things with the blog.  The migration happened last night which slowed me down a bit. We are still working some of the kinks out so we appreciate your patience!  We have grown quite a bit over the past few months (thank you, faithful readers!) and we have lots of exciting things that will be happening with Button Jar over the next few months!  Keep an eye out for breaking news announcements – subscribers will get first dibs!  We CAN’T WAIT to share what is coming with you, but for now it will just have to be a cliffhanger.  Stay tuned!

Coloring contest winners

It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of July (was it really that long ago that I was on vacation?!) but we have had a great time reviewing your coloring contest entries.  We had entries from young and old alike and your creativity was astounding!   Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who participated!  We hope you had as much fun coloring as we did. Isn’t it therapeutic?

A little disclaimer about choosing the winners – Katie and Abby were the official judges on this competition because my kiddos wanted to enter the competition too.  I gathered all of our entries and removed the names so Katie and Abby could be objective. So without further ado, here are our coloring contest winners!

1st Place- $25 Amazon Gift Card & Coloring book w/ pencils

First place goes to Trent Gallimore!  Trent’s incorporation of Edvard Munch’s The Scream was very clever. He also went above and beyond and pasted a black border around the coloring sheet to give it a polished look.  Well done, Trent!

2nd  Place – $10 Amazon Gift Card

Congratulations to Mechelle Purdue on getting 2nd place in the contest!  We really loved that you used paint instead of crayons to color in your sheet.  The colors remind us of the best days on the beach. We loved it!

3rd Place – $5 Starbucks Gift Card

So the final winner of the contest is none other than Hunter Sell!  (Cheers, applause, high fives from his momma).  Hunter’s coloring sheet is an interpretation of a beautiful sunset in the evening.  Some of my happiest memories are watching sunsets with the kids on the beach so I really love this one.
