We Have a WINNER! - Just a Little Obsessive Maybe?

Congratulations to Miz Smoochie Lips from Unabashed Repetition - the winner by a landslide!

This is what Miz Smoochie Lips had to say . . . Is a Gajillion a viable number? Heh heh. Hmm... 794? Am I warm? Cold? Getting warmer?

Please e-mail me (look in the right-hand column of my blog) your snail mail address, and your punched circles and flowers will be on their way.

By the way, the total number of punchouts in the jar is 1,000. That's right, 1,000!

A couple of years ago, I taught a lot of classes that involved paper and cardstock. When I would return home from a class, I would punch circles and flowers out of the leftover papers. I would then put the punch outs into baggies and store them away.

While going through drawers and boxes of paper today, I found the baggies. When I saw how many I had, it was a little disturbing to me. What was I thinking? Why did I have to try to salvage every piece of scrap? What did I think I would make out of these circles and flowers?

Since I can't remember, it's time to de-stash these little boogers! So what better way to do that than to have another CONTEST and GIVE-AWAY?!

Guess how many pieces are in the glass jar, and the blogger than comes the closest wins the lot!

Only one entry per blogger

If there's a tie, the lot will be divided in half

This contest will end when someone guesses the exact number of pieces or on Tuesday morning at 4:00 the blogger that comes closest. Whichever comes first!

Good luck and feel free to invite your other blogger friends to participate!

PS Now I'm disturbed that I sat here and COUNTED each piece!
PSS And before you ask, YES, I did keep a baggie full . . . "just in case"

I'm not going to guess because I have 5 times that much in punched butterflys! I too went crazy one day with the scraps. I now use them as "filler" with some of my etsy sales!
