Crafty Giveaway! Now with tampons!

I'm reading: Crafty Giveaway! Now with tampons!Tweet this!

I've lost a bit of my blogging mojo in recent weeks, so forgive me if I'm a bit behind on this, but I'm (finally) starting a group called the Sisterhood of the Traveling Tampon Ornament.

The delightful piece of craft pictured here came to me from Sanctimommy, who in turn received it from White Trash Mom, Michelle Lamar, who lovingly created this piece from, well, her trash. Or so it seems.

As you can see, this delightful, silvery and white snowflake made a beautiful addition to my Hanukkah sign, where it hung in December. Since then it's been sitting on my desk in our living room, which can only lead me to ask,

What the hell is wrong with my family that not ONE person has commented on it or asked me what it is?

They, I should say WE, are beyond help. What kind of mom leaves a tampon craft hanging around the house? Oh, sorry Michelle, no offense intended.

Now you can win the chance to hang this lucky snowflake in your car, office, bedroom or bathroom. It really is lucky. I've got two new consulting clients since the tampon star/snowflake settled on my desk late last year. Hooray!

What unexpected joy might this bring to you?

To enter to win, you have to first promise me to pass this along to another blogger after the tampon fairies have worked their magic on you. Second, yes, sorry it's a bit of work, you have to click over to Anna's PMS meme on her funny, funny blog Life Just Keeps Getting Weirder. No need to comment there, she gets more comments per post than I get per year. (Granted, she is a lot funnier. Sure leave her a comment anyway.) Pick one of the items in her meme to complete in the comments here.

Feel free to add any other pleas that might tug at my heart. I'm not sure how I will choose a winner, so go ahead and offer a bribe if you really want this.

Entries will be accepted through 11:59 PM CST on February 8, 2009.

Edited to add h/t to Florinda, from 3rs, for telling me about Anna's meme.

There is nothing that I can do to improve on Anna's list. Attempting it would show just how unfunny I am. But I will say that every time I see a picture of that tampon decoration, I get a vision in my head of a Fox show about six women who have to spend one week a month together, doing everything together...kind of like "Chains of Love" but with tampons instead of chains. Yes, I don't know why I don't have a job in network TV yet either.

The last time I saw something like that it was on the episode of "McGyver" where he was marooned on an island populated by rabid air hostesses and was trying to escape by making a new propeller for a damaged motorboat. (Guest star: Ms. Barbie Benton)

Did I win? Did I win?

Thanks for the shout-out, BTW! High praise, indeed, coming from you...

See you in Chicago in July, Hot Stuff!

OK, wait - the word verification is "indboodi." Does that mean what I think it does? Yow!

I am completely offended and grossed out by the tampon craft! HA! Gotcha! Only a twisted person would have a tampon craft on her blog, which is why I do it every year. I will post links to this excellent contest! woot!

Love it it's perfect. great tampon crafting, lol!

It's always safe to: feed me some chocolate, except when I am feeling fat, which usually happens when I have PMS, so you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.

And I want the tampon star because if it brings good luck I'm thinking maybe it can bring me some sponsorship dollars to send me to the webby conferences this year. I'll do anything, including pimping out this tampon craft.

D'ya think that maybe the prize Tampon Ornament might have kept all but the brave and the twisted from commenting on your post? I came over from Anna's site, so you know I appreciate ANY prize!!! And is it possible that your family members have lived with you long enough to know that a tampon ornament is not out of the ordinary in your home?

Just sayin'....

BTW, the word verification for my comment... tabolib. Seems to fit for the post.
