contest. did you say CONTEST???

Who wants to have some fun? I certainly do.

Thanks to the lovely and luminous Swistle for the ingenius Pay It Forward Contest, Group Effort Edition - I'm hosting a contest for all you beauties (and here's a chance for you shy non-commenters to comment).


Who: You and you and you and, yes, YOU.

What: Pay it Forward Contest

Where: Here, silly.

When: Contest is open until Friday the 4th at 6pm PST. Leave a comment on this post and I'll use a random number generator to pick the winner (read: tiny numbered pieces of paper in a bowl - I'm not very fancy). I will post the winning announcement on Saturday the 5th before 10am PST.

How: If you win my contest you host a contest of your own and require your winner to also host a contest etc. etc. forever and ever thus furthering love and sweetness and all things fantastic on the internet.

Why: Because it's fun. And if your number is picked, you WIN a PRIZE from ME. I do great packages. Really.


THE PRIZE:
Will include (winner can specify which package sounds better):
either---
- A BABY themed package including a handmade taggie blanket made by yours truly. I made one for Alice recently and she LOVES it. And I have to say, I think it looks smashing.
or---
- A NON-BABY themed package including a pack of handmade cards created by yours truly. Also smashing, I promise.

Each package will include some other FUN items, but you'll have to win to find out. Now, leave a comment letting me know which chocolate bar in the bag of Hershey's tiny chocolate bar assortment you eat first. Mine is most definitely KRACKLE. MMMMMM.

I can testify that anything/everything that comes from the Hands of Whimsy is indeed smashing! You will be pleased, trust me.

P.S. I will fight you for that KRACKLE, lady!

Alice said...

i just googled all the candy bars in a package of minis just to make sure i had an accurate answer :-) and the winner is: special dark! mmmmm...

moo said...

At first I was like, TAGGIE BLANKET YES!

Then I remembered I no longer have an infant. So, non infant prize for me, please.

*sigh*

MzEll said...

Always a dark chocolate first, then everything else.

Bikini said...

Used to be milk chocolate, but now is dark chocolate. Yum...

Eleanor Q. said...

Oooh! I'm in need of a crib skirt! Pick me! Pick me!

Stacy said...

The Mr. Goodbar always vanishes to my tummy immediately!!

Ecchs said...

Special Dark, or the peanut one if someone (glaring at my husband) has eaten them all first.

I always EAT the dark chocolate.

YUMM!

Daycare Girl said...

Plain basic Hershey. I usually eat them all out of the bag before I try anything else, actually.

I have a new nephew, and mail to write, so I'd love either package, whatever you feel like doing!

Sara said...

awesome milk chocolate

Fiona Picklebottom said...

KRACKLE!!! Then I pass the bag on to the rest of the family.

Mimi said...

I like the kind with the yellow wrapper and the peanuts!

Smiling Mama said...

Oh the cards the cards the cards, they sound so wonderful and lovely!!!

Emily said...

Mr. Goodbar. Every time.

Brooke said...

Well, I just found I am pregnant with the first so I am torn between which package I want!

Michelle said...

I'm going with the non-baby one as I'm most definitely and certainly DONE with procreating. (Watch karma laugh at me, go ahead.)

My first one to eat is the 500 Grand. Krackle is the next though!

Barb @ getupandplay said...

I like the Dark Chocolate ones!

Paige said...

First would be the Mr. Goodbar. Really. Then the regular Hershey's. I would love a NON baby package, if I were to win, thanks.

andrea said...

I live in Australia and have never seen the Hershey's tiny chocolate bar assortment. So wouldn't I be a fantastic winner? Because you could add the Hershey's assortment and introduce me to a whole new chocolate experience. And that would make me very happy.

Erica said...

Mr. Goodbar. Always.

Misty said...

I am a Mr. Goodbar kind of girl :)

Maggie said...

I don't really eat chocolate. I will now go and hang my head in shame. But if I had to eat something, I would probably pick a Krackle.

NotAMeanGirl said...

Special Dark Bar....

NotAMeanGirl said...

Special Dark Bar....

Janice said...

Krackle...is there anything else in that bag?

Missy said...

Not a Hershey's fan, from my limited experience (we don't really get them in Australia - clearly I've been deprived). But I'll go anything dark chocolate.

Pickles & Dimes said...

Mmmmmm...Krackle...

emily said...

mmmm i'm a milk chocolate fan ... then mr. goodbar - i have to admit that i leave a big bag of special dark behind ... it may be better for you ... but my mouth doesn't agree!

SP said...

Definitely the Dark Chocolate

Laura said...

Also a Krackle lover here! Yum! Oh, and have you tried Hershey's "Bliss" -- it's a beautiful thing!!

Tessie said...

TOTALLY KRACKLE. Duh.

EMama said...

It depends - if I'm sharing, I eat the Krackle first to make sure I get it. If I'm eating alone I save Krackle for last, and eat the plain boring Hershey chocolate first.

And I'd like the baby themed one. I'm ridiculously pregnant for only being 6 months along.

Miss Grace said...

Is Reese's a part of Hershey? Because if so then peanutbutter cups.

Playful Professional said...

It goes in a color order for me every time. Yellow goes first, then red, then all of the others eventually.

jenny said...

milk chocolate. every last one of them goes first. :)

Heather said...

I'd go for the baby themed package since I just had #3 a few weeks ago.

I totally eat the Krackle first, but only because I save my favorite for last...so that taste is in my mouth at the end. So if you want to know what my favorite is, that would be the Special Dark!

Leash said...

My absolute favorite is the Special Dark. Most definitely.

pinkelefant said...

special dark

Jennifer said...

I have not eaten chocolate since 9th grade (16 years ago).

Dr. Blondie said...

milk chocolate

Catherine said...

Milk chocolate by the handful.

Christina, Steve, Clara and Elena said...

Always, always the special dark!

caley said...

Dude, the Krackles! Yum!

Jenny H. said...

Special Dark, Baby, all the way!

hangel said...

Is the hershey with almonds a choice? Because if that is, that is for me. Followed by the Krackle!

Joanne said...

Mr. Goodbar!

Kelsey said...

Ah, we can no longer buy these because of my daughter's peanut allergy. But back in the day, Krackle were my favorite.

Tiffany said...

Hershey's WITH ALMONDS. Oh man, I'm hungry.

Kristi said...

Mr Goodbar...and i avoid the specialty dark (unless there is pb nearby for dipping)

Courtney said...

definitely special dark....

oh this is fun!

ya ya's mom said...

Ginny said...

Mr Goodbar

Chraycee said...
