Give-Away!


Have you ever tried to guess how many jelly beans were in a jar? Well now is your chance to win a fabulous prize from Summers Studio by guessing how many pieces of little bisque buttons, connectors and pendants came out of the kiln this morning!

Clues? You want clues? OK then, the size of the pieces in this bowl range from 1" (2.5 cm) to 2" (5 cm) in diameter. 10% of the pieces are 2" (5 cm) in diameter. All of them are about 1/8" (3 mm) thick. The size of the container is 8.5" (21.5 cm) by 3" (7.5 cm) tall. That is about 0.10 cubic feet or 0.0028 cubic meters. Alright then, it's a wee bit bigger container then those short bread cookie tins at Christmas time.

Would any of this information actually help me to narrow down how many things are in this bowl? Of course not. My brain is just not configured that way. But this might help. There are between 150 and 250 pieces in there. The number of pieces in there is an even number.

Rules of the game:

You have until midnight (CST) on Monday to submit your number.
You may enlist any of your math geeky friends to help you out.
Enter your guess as a comment.
You may not choose a number that has been previously submitted.

And just what is that fabulous prize? It is a mystery! It is a mystery even to me. But I can tell you that it will be the final glazed version of a set of things in this bowl. And that there are several brand spanking new designs in there and that you will have a choice of jewelry components or buttons or both!

Just why am I doing this now. Well I just made 151 sales in my Etsy shop. And at least 1 number in 151 is common to both my age, birth month, and birth year. No, you do not get bonus points for guessing my age. In fact I'm thinking you will get penalty points for that.

Let the contest begin......

Just by looking I was going to guess over 400 but since you say it is between x and y I'll have to change my guess! How about 180. I just love to see a big o'l pile of work like that! Gaea
