Why not make a fun contest out of the guessing game right?? Here's the deal, the person that comes closest to guessing our "secret" will get a $20 credit to the Knit Witch store! That way you can use the money towards a yarn bowl or a spindle bowl or a linen bowl or some buttons or whatever you want. Sound good?!?! I think I will also extend a $10 credit for the most outragous story. That gives you TWO chances to win. If more than one person guesses both parts of the secret correctly then the first person to get the correct answer in wins. This way, even the folks that don't know that much about me can happily participate
You can use your credit whenever you like so if you don't see something on the site right now that floats your boat you can wait until we put on more stuff.
Before I go any further, I do have to exclude a couple of people, unfortunately. Turtlegirl, you are excluded and you need to keep your mouth shut even though you only know a part of the secret! And Melissa is excluded even though she does not remember that I have already told her the secret (gosh darn menopause!). Finally, Hockeymom, you are also excluded because you know too much! None of you know the whole story but it's not fair to include you so - no sharing information! All of you have already gotten previous prizes from me anyway in one form or another.
So, post or email me your best guess and/or most outragous guess. You can enter as many of each type of guess as you like and then we will choose the one that meets the secret the closest as the main winner. The bold words in red are some clues. Look for these clues in future posts. The contest will run until April 30, 2008 at which time I will be able to reveal the secret and the winner! All that anxiety about the contest will then just become water under the bridge. Here are a couple of other clues:
1. This is a TWO part secret.
2. Neither portion has ANYTHING to do with me being pregnant - EVER. Seriously.
Mr. Man will make a contest button so look for that in the days to come so that you can pass along the info in your own blog.
