Limited Contest – Giveaway

Not long ago, I asked for input on what to do with some lovely recyclable plastic rings that came off my coconut milk creamer containers.  I had three comments on the post and for those brave three, I offer this contest.  I would like to reward at least one of them for  commenting on the post.

I ended up using the plastic ring-thingies to make the eyes when I created this little guy.  Other than the rings, he is made of acrylic worsted weight yarn, polyester fiberfill, and felt.  The felt is glued on to the eyes so I would not recommend this for a child of the age of three or under.  I know how determined those little fingers can be and would not want them to be able to get the eyes off and choke on a piece of felt.  Now with that disclaimer out of the way, I would like to invite MacBros, Peter Parkour, and Melanie to come again and comment.  I will turn comment moderation on and the second person of these three to comment shall win the frog!  Please remember that when comment moderation is on, that the number of comments does not show for the post – it simply reads as zero until the comments are released from moderation.  Oh, anyone else may comment too, but will not be eligible for this particular contest.  Sorry, but there will be more contests so keep stopping by!

Remember, it pays to comment at the Tea Room.  Maybe it doesn’t pay a LOT, but hey, something for nothing is still something!  😉

Update:  We have a winner!  See comments. Thanks to all for comments and for playing!

Craft Challenge

Do you know what this is?  Scroll down for answer.





It’s a plastic ring that comes off the coconut milk creamer I use in my coffee.  I think other cartons of milks and juices may also have them.  What I want to know is if anyone can come up with a good crafty use for them?  They are very interesting little things and I kind of hate throwing them out.  I’ve thought maybe I could use them in my crocheting as eyes or something like maybe on a little amigurumi monster or even a frog.  I haven’t tried it yet.  But before I do, I thought I would just put the question out there and see what we could come up with.  Please put your ideas in a comment, even if you’ve never visited or commented here before.  I’m sure there are some creative thinkers out there.  And if you want to get your hands on one to play with it for yourself, let me know and I’ll be happy to send you some!
