Oh, hi! I made a mystery jewel. Here it is:
Actually I made several versions.
Can you guess what it's made of?
I hereby announce a new, fun GIVEAWAY feature just for you! It's called Guess the Mystery Thing and Win One and Be the Envy of All Your Friends but Only if You Actually Like It and Want One Although Maybe Even if You Don't Like It All That Much You Could Win It and Give It as a Gift to Someone Who Likes This Kind of Stuff.
Guess the Mystery Thing for short.
Please guess! I will feel sad if nobody wants to try. There will be three winners! The reader with the first correct guess wins her choice. There will be a second winner for the most creative guess. But wait! Even if you think someone else has already guessed correctly, you can still score: a third winner will be chosen by my high-tech cutting-edge randomizing program. (My mom will pick a number.)
It's something from the dollar store.
Additional fine print!
1. Guessing is open to anyone, anywhere.
2. Be sure there's an email address available somewhere (in the comment, or in your profile), so I can contact you if you win.
3. If I manage to stump everyone, you will each owe me a Hershey's Kiss or a haiku about how clever I was to pull the wool over your eyes. (Also, I will choose the top two creative guesses and send each of them The Mystery Thing.)
By the way, this contest was suggested by the brilliant Jessica of Zakka Life. Thank you, Jessica, I LOVE this idea, so happy you thought of it!
So what are you waiting for? Time to Guess the Mystery Thing!
Update: thanks, everybody! This challenge is now closed.
