Great News and Contest!!

I received notification today that the brads have cleared customs. I will be able to pick them up on Monday from the warehouse. I expect it to take a week to count enough to send out the preorders and get them all shipped. I will post a photo tomorrow (providing I can find the camera, card reader, and computer all at the same time) of the samples I received from the manufacturer.

I'm so excited to see these brads I can't put it into words!

So, here's another contest: Send me an e-mail, PM on SCS, or comment on this post your guess of the weight of the brads. I ordered 33,000 brads of each color and 66,000 black ones. I just did the math, and that means I ordered 1,980,000 brads!!! Yikes!

Anyway, whoever guesses the closest to the weight of the brads and packaging will receive a free gift from me. You have until September 15th to send me your guess. Here's a little hint: The brads are coming to me in 7 different cartons....have fun guessing! LOL

Oops - had to delete the last one because I added an extra digit. That made it about as big as the number of brads you're getting. My real guess is 91 lbs. Probably low, but I'm unable to think in numbers as big as what you're receiving.

projectr said...
