I Only Have Eyes For Etsy Contest

I recently received a package full of eyeballs from a unknown Etsian. The mystery continued as my EMA friends wouldn't reveal the prankster. Why you're asking did someone send me eyes? Why is the answer...my "Why" mosaic affectionatley named Iris gave this certain someone the idea. I found out the following day that it was Jen from RockCandyMosaics that sent them to me.
Thanks Jen Jen!

Now, everyone is waiting to see what I'll create with these. While I'm brainstorming some ideas I decided to have a contest for my fellow Etsy sellers .Take a guess of how many eyeballs there are...it's a regular size pasta sauce jar filled with big and small eyes. Whoever comes closest to the correct number will win a feature on my blog!
Leave your guess and shop name in my comments below. The winner will be revealed on August 11th! Good luck and LOOK closely!

132 eyeballs! is my guess

I am hoping for an odd number so something will end up with either 1 or 3 eyeballs (waste not want not)


Donna said...

oh boy... I was just about to guess 107 but I see someone beat me too it. Argh. lol. Then 111 is still pretty close. I'm going to just up it to a random nubmer to be different and say 123.
