A Giveaway!

In conjunction with The Great Closet Clean Up (and my renewed commitment to blogging), I am having a GIVEAWAY!

Basic premise: You guess how many skirts I own. Because I am starting a closet purge, that number will constantly be changing, but the only number that counts is the one at the end of the project.


Timeline: No idea. It might take me a week to finish this project, or it might take me a month. You can enter at any time up until I edit this post and declare the project DONE.


Random Rules: You may enter once. This contest is open to US residents only. (Sorry, other countries!)



Hints: It's going to be a pretty big number. I wear skirts often. Even if I purge many of them, I will have quite a few left.


I couldn't even guess how many I have.

In the Event of a Tie: If multiple people guess the same number or if two people are equidistant from the actual number, I will choose the winner by flipping a coin or drawing names.


Prizes: The winner will choose from one of four prizes. There will be a sewing prize, a kitchen prize, an around-the-world prize, or a vintage children's prize. Details on these will follow once we get a sunny day and I can take photos!

What You Need to Do: Leave your guess in the comments of this post. I need a way to get in touch with you as well. Make sure I have an email address or link to your blog or something, anything, so I don't have to hire a detective to track you down!


Did I forget anything?

Since you've already gotten rid of quite a few, I'm going to guess....23.
Is this like The Price is Right where you have to be closest without going over, or just closest?

Darling Petunia said...

STL Mom, it's not the Price is Right, lol. You can be closest and go over.

I guess 59 skirts. I watched you sewing a bunch of them when I was lurking on the blog wardrobe refashion. Are you still over there?

I think you will end up with 21 skirts! Good luck with your purge! It's quite a good feeling when you're done with it!

I'll guess 57 skirts. Good luck on the cleaning the closet. Something I need to do badly! Time to get the summer clothes out and the winter ones in ( well, not winter, late summer, early fall)>

Stephanie Fitzgerald said...

37:)

Erin said...

I will guess the end result will be 27 skirts.

Tami Madsen said...

Good luck cleaning your closet!! I would guess you have 62...cause then you would have two months worth and never wear the same one twice!

Becky said...

I have been gradually culling from my closet too. I need to do a lot more though! I'm going to guess 53 skirts.

Lise said...

Hm. I came over to say 29 (I "need" that sap's running tea towel!), but I see I'm way below most of the guesses here. Maybe I don't have quite as too-many skirts in my own closet as I thought (18, maybe? Haven't counted.) Well, I'm going to stick with my guess, random and low as it is. Good luck with your purge; it's been inspiring me!

Katy said...

I say 31 skirts.

Anita said...

42?

Anonymous said...

Hmmm.. You said you have A LOT of them.. So I'm going to say final count will be 75

Angela Pea said...

Hmm...since I'm not a skirtaholic and I own 17 skirts, I'm going to quadruple and guess that you own 68 skirts.
