I can finally stop saying I never win anything

I've spent the majority of my life never winning contests.

Until now.

Because I won Courtney Chesley's TwIsTeD Twitterers contest!

Day 031 Year 2: TwIsTeD Bracelets!!!

The contest was easy; I simply had to tweet a statement to Courtney that began with, "I'm twisted because..." and then I was randomly selected as the winner. Go here to see how twisted the contestants are.

My goodies arrived in the mail the day I left for Colorado. Receiving the bracelets was an exciting event, not only because I love getting mail, but also because Courtney packaged her handmade bracelets in Popcorn and Peanuts bags. How fun!

She also included a couple of surprises: a TwIsTeD pin and a fortune-teller fish that you "...place in the palm of your hand and watch it begin to move, wiggle, curl up or flip off your hand all by itself!" Though really the thing more-or-less tells you your mood (jealous, passionate, etc).

(SIDE NOTE: Since the instructions do not specify "remove fish from bag" an airhead friend of mine tried it with the fish in the bag, which meant it did nothing, which gave him a reading of Dead Fish. Doh!)

You can buy Courtney's bracelets by visiting her page on etsy.

  2. Thanks, Ms. Spaghettipants! I love those silly fish toys and collect the vintage popcorn bags. Seriously- it looks like a carnival in my office (;

    SO happy you dig 'em!

  3. Those bracelets rock. Would you know if Courtney sells them? They would make great party favors for my pre-teen's birthday.

  7. Just wondering ~ since the bracelets are made from phone wires are your more - or - less prone to get hit by lightning?
