Thank you judges. I think my scoring is very fair.

It's a Laburnum tree and the 'yellow hangy things' are flowers. I have one in my back yard.

Although reading that I see it is poisonous... just as well my kids didn't eat it.

Really?! Sucks that greenhouse walls would have been okay yet they would not have looked nearly as nice. Was going with the "no additional space" was added. Oh, well. Serves me right trying to be in a contest during the holiday season (I work retail).

And believe me, I wasn't trying to let anyone else win. I wanted that fucking little blue ribbon.

Poor HL *offers drink*

I'm going to miss this contest.

Will we be getting an Accomplishment for taking part? I notice down the bottom of my page there is a ‘participated in a contest’ one.

Yes, you should get that badge - I noticed I'd got it after the Scrapbooking Contest, but whether it was awarded prior to that (i.e. after the Foundations for Families Contest) I wouldn't like to say...

No need to use my full name, "Selly" will do just fine.

I would like to thank you all for making my little contest a success I have enjoyed getting to know all of you and seeing everyone's different styles. My downloads folder, however, does NOT thank you all I hope to see you all back for the next 'hood in the new year!

I intend to compete next time - I'm hoping it's Strangetown rather than Veronaville as I utterly detest the latter...though, that does mean I've looked at those houses least and had no experience of them so could be interesting...hmmm.

Oh, I'll post the pics of what I did to the last 2 houses in the appropriate thread in the pics forum, as I've not had chance to go into my game for days and I expect this'll be locked by the time I have taken the pics to show lol - so keep an eye out in there if you're interested

Judge 2: 8/10 The coffee table is extremely close to the couch. And I don't see the need for the second TV on the wall by the stove.

So wait a second...

When do we hoist Liv up on all of our shoulders and carry her around MTS2 in her victory lap?

*readies self for celebratory hoisting*

I WON I WON I WON I WON <screams with excitement>
Oh my, it was so sudden and I'm so happy! But, believe me, it was hard to get on the top xD

Gloriana - I'm affraid I'm too heavy to be carried xD But any other way of celebrating (for example jo's confetti and crackers ^^) would be cool
And it's nice to see that not the only one who's happy about my final score

I think in at least 90% of my homes I use the Annie

I'm not suprised, because for some time I've been doing the same This contest made me realise how many beautiful things I have in my Downloads folder and that I don't appreciate them at all!
Annie's design suits perfectly for any interior, becoause of recolors and "shaping" options.

My one "complaint" is I think the curtains in Elise's room don't quite go and are a bit busy with the rest of the room.

I wanted something colourful here, but I totally agree with you that plain ones (I'm not sure about the stripes tbh) would be way better. I just did't consider that option

I love that I'm pretty sure there's a radio in the kitchen. I have one there myself

I don't, but I know many people have it it their kitches so I thought it would be a nice addition

The various items of footwear all lined up made me laugh.

Really? I thought it would be a nice accent!
Quote:
However, there is one major problem; the back door is blocked by the easel and canvas deco item.

No, it's not. I clearly stated that everything in this house is accesible for sim.

Nvm Julian being sick ;]
Quote:
In addition, the tiny patio is very full and will probably cause major traffic issues for sims trying to sit at the table or use the barbeque.

I don't have the original house in my game, but I think the objects are in the same places as in the contest version. And they ARE to be reached.


Btw, no photo edits on these screens. Resized only.

Thanks for fair scoring I'm absolutely happy with it
And most of all, thanks for such nice contest! I considered myself as quite experienced builder, but the judges proved me I'm not and that I had to change some things in "my" style. The lessons I've learned would be very helpful while (re)building sims' houes But not only judges gave me a lot of hepful pieces of advice!
Each contestant has his or her own style as well and I've seen there many great ideas! Looking at your pics even now I feel very inspired And grateful, becuase your works were so well-done that I had to think up something original, and in my normal gameplay it doesn't happen very often Competing with you was great fun!

So thanks again

I'm really happy with the final scores! Boy, that was a close race, in my head I believe everyone was at first, because the scores were so close. But since this is the real world, and not inside of my head, congratulations Liv, Phaenoh and HigeLunatic for making the top 3, you guys rocked!

Anyway, I'd like to thank jones for your efforts in creating and managing this contest, and all the judges for your support and always-helpful feedback! It was a fun journey, and I can't wait for the Veronaville and Strangetown ones. We all deserve a very merry christmas and a wonderful new year :D
