etsy shop owners get to know a little bit about each other through a weekly non-team treasury challenge based on the names folks give their shops.

The winner of game 2 and this week’s featured shop is  .  .  .  JDWolfePottery

selections from JDWolfePottery

I got a little background on this shop owner. Hopefully her family still doesn’t have email!

“Little miss JD married a wolf and followed her lifelong dream of throwing pots of all things!

Needless to say her family was stunned.
How did she fall in love with a wolf?

What can they possibly have in common?

And even worse, why didn’t she follow the family tradition of making fine china for royalty?

Pots for the masses—oh the shame.”

Game 3 is on!  Use this tag “nonteamalterego3.” Deadline is next Tuesday February 1st at midnight standard Eastern time.

Each week the winner will be the featured shop in the next challenge.

Come have some fun and market your fellow etsians!

Anybody can play and there are no rules other than including the featured shop and basing the T on the featured shop name (game 3 JDWolfePottery). If you want folks to know your are playing and find your own shop easily, simply tag at least one of your items with “AlterEgoNonTeam.” You can check out the other treasuries being made by doing a search in etsy treasuries using the tag name “nonteamalterego3″.

Incredibly beautiful collections and of creations I had never seen before and it was a difficult choice to narrow down just one winner. Thanks to everyone who participated. I can’t wait to participate on the other side of the coin!   Waterrose

Each week the winner will be the featured shop in the next challenge.

Here’s how we’ll start:
Create a treasury using any item from Waterrose and base your treasury on the shop name. Add a tag in your treasury using the exact phrase “nonteamalterego1” and state plainly in the curator’s comments that this is a non-team challenge posting this blog 88editions.wordpress.com/2011/01/11/alter-egos-on-etsy for more info. We’ll close off the contest at midnight US standard eastern time on Tuesday 1/18.

WaterRose will pick the winner and we’ll start the process all over again on Friday 1/21.
