Did someone say giveaway? I did!

It's my first giveaway and I've come up with a little gothy gift from me to you. If you guess correctly, that is. I was talking about my giveaway with my blog buddy, Eve, tonight and we were talking about what "game" I could play with you rather than just pulling a name out of a hat. When she does giveaways, she typically shows a pic of a bunch of items and you have to guess how much is in the container. So here's my guessing game for you:

It's my sock drawer! ha ha It normally doesn't look like this but I've mussed it up for the game. So what are the rules for this giveaway, you ask?

1. You have to guess how many individual socks are in the drawer (not pairs of socks).
2. You must be a follower of this blog.
3. You need to put your answer in this post...not any other.
4. Sorry folks but I'm only going to be shipping the giveaway package within the United States.

The person that follows the rules above and is the closest one to the answer without going over, wins! So what could you win? A drink shaker with a skull on it, Halloween cookie cutters, an Emily the Strange wallet, and I'll be throwing in a surprise gift too!

Winner will be chosen on June 4.

Good luck to all!

Diane said...

hhmmm......... i'm going to guess... 29!

Eve Noir said...

Yup, I see atleast one pair I own-the orange ones w/white skellys on 'em. :)

My guess...28!!!

Dracenea said...

Thanks for all the guesses!

Eve - I knew we would have at least one that was similar let alone the exact same! ha ha

Eve Noir said...

BTW: Dracenea, do you use your phone camera or a different one?...

Just paid attention that Diane is right, you gotta win some kind of digital camera giveaway! ;}

Dracenea said...

Eve - I can't use my phone camera cuz' I don't have a way to get the pics of my phone, remember? :)

The Frog Queen said...

Hummmm...the Frog Queen got out her new glasses and she only counted about 18 (possibly 16) socks and whole lota black something......I am not good at counting "something". (Or "anything" for that matter.)

Actually, there is a reason I changed my major in college from Accounting to Marketing....that whole "counting" thing, which I should have seen know, with the title "Accounting" and all. But obviously can't read either.

Frog Queen will never win a counting game. And she is okay with that. Good luck everyone!!!


Dracenea said...

Frog Queen - Ah yes, my last job title was Allocation Accountant. I hate math. :)

Thanks for stopping by and offering a guess!

Eve Noir said...

YES, I remember now. BUY a memory card, girl! Mine was SO cheap, your pics will look so much better. I got mine off Amazon for DIRT CHEAP.

BTW: I like the plaid skull & crossbones socks. Are they knee highs? I have this thing for knee high socks (in fall/winter)-I got a bunch of HALLOWEEN kinds too. My fave is a simple orange & black stripped pair.

OK, I'll stop hogging your comment wall...since I've already guessed! ;}

Dracenea said...

Eve - Yep, they are knee-highs. Very good to have in the colder months.

DeadmansLog said...

Wow! I love that your sock-drawer looks like my sock-and-underwear drawer ... nothing but Halloween. Makes me so happy. :)

Still -- I can justify guessing more than 16, just based on what I can count in the picture. (then again, counting was never my strong suit... you've no idea).

Dracenea said...

DeadmansLog - Is there anything other than Halloween? Really? I have no idea cuz' all I see are bats, skeletons, witches, spiders, etc. :)

Thanks for offering a guess!

Is it too late to guess???? I say 33 socks!

Dracenea said...

Riverwolf - Yep, it's too late to guess but you overshot anyway. :)
