Closeup Contest – Win a Shopping Spree! {ended}

It’s time for a contest!  Everyone likes to win, right?  Well, what we’re giving away is a $75.00 shopping spree in our Etsy shop!!!  November 1st – November 8, 2013.

Here’s how it works – we will post a picture here on our blog on the morning of November 1st of simple every day items you should be familiar with.   The catch – the images are SUPER close up & black & white (color would just give them away!) – so you have to figure out what the image is!  Fun right?   The first person to get all the correct answers will win the shopping spree!  There are also second and third place prizes!

Once you have a chance to look at the images, you will go over to our contest entry form and submit your information and answers for a chance to win!

Ok, let’s try this out….here’s an example!

Sample Closeup

Easy peasy, right?  You’ve seen it before whether you realize it or not!  Figure it out yet?  I’ll give you a hint….Apple sends them out with almost every one of their items.  You guessed it, a wall power adapter for your devices!

So, be ready to play starting November 1st, 2013 – watch our Facebook page for the announcement!
