It seems almost too SOON for a contest, doesn't it? We JUST HAD contests. We are still a little WRUNG OUT from contests. Nevertheless, we are having another contest! Because I won Jess Loolu's pay-it-forward contest, and now it is my turn to send a package!
First, let's take a look at the awesome package Jess Loolu sent me:
That is a polka-dotted terry sundress for Elizabeth and a set of extremely cool gift-tags (I'll use one on the package!). Both items from, as Jess puts it in the pretty card, "your boyfriend Target."
It will not be easy to measure up to the glory that was that package; I love BOTH items SO MUCH. But I will try! And as I mentioned in the post about my date with Paul, I have one item, an item PAUL-APPROVED for cuteness. It is this tube-shaped pencil tin:
I think you can see it larger if you click on it. Inside the tin are a dozen colored pencils with those same little pictures on the sides---and the pencils are rounded-triangular, so they don't roll away. ALSO, the cap has a lion's face on it! Oh, it is so cute! Do you see in the photo how my hand is sort of CLUTCHING the tube, like I am unwilling to let it go? THAT IS NO ILLUSION.
And that is just the START of the package I am assembling! Who knows what else I will put in there? WHO KNOWS?
So now let's talk about the rules, and how this thing goes. If you want to win the contest, you will leave a comment in this post's comment section before Tuesday, May 20th, noon, United States Pacific Time. You don't have to say anything in particular. You can say "hi!" You can say, "I like squirrels." You can say, "Roses are red / Violets are blue / I want to win this contest / So let me." It does not matter what you say---and there is no sense either kissing up or working the pity angle, because I'll use a random number generator to pick someone, and the random number generator's mathematical heart is unswayed by kissing-up and pity. UNSWAYED!
And! If you win! You must pay it forward! In this context, that means you must assemble a package and mail it to someone else.
Now go comment if you want to be entered. If you need help deciding what to say, why don't you tell me if your face is dry, oily, or combination?
