A House of Cards

Friday, July 20, 2007

Since the Summer CHA show has begun...

and I am not there :( , I decided to hold a fun little contest.

My Foof-a-la button collection was getting seriously out of control. Those little bags were just taking up so much room, and I really needed the extra space. So I went out and bought a big glass jar from World Market to hold them all in. I LOVE the way it looks. Just like a candy jar!

I did a crazy thing and counted all of my Foof-a-la buttons. So here is my little contest for you~
Guess how many buttons are in the jar. The jar is about 7" in diameter and about 10" tall with the lid on and 7 1/2" tall without the lid. I am going to give you until Monday morning at 9am CST The person with the closest guess will get a fun little RAK from me. Let the guessing begin!

Hi there. lol I have just finished sorting my buttons, but having a life I did not count them, lol I am joking here. I will post a pic of my button stash on my blog, I sorted them into colour groups, then large buttons, fancy cute ones, and gold and silver. I have put them into jars on a large spice rack. Deb. Oh if you havn't said the answer I will go with 1,467
