Do you know what today (Saturday) is? Surely you remember! You don't? Well, no matter; I'll tell you:
Today is our three-week anniversary!
Yes, up until twenty-one days ago, my life had been little more than an endless stream of meaningless vintage sewing machine purchases and promiscuous fabric shopping that left me feeling empty inside.
But then I met all of you, here, at Male Pattern Boldness.
I am ready to take it to the next level. I have decided to offer my very first giveaway.
The prize is a book of vintage Glamour Girl Paper Dolls, my gift to the lucky winner. Postage is on me.
If you don't know these dolls, they are splendid. The book, a reproduction of the original, is full of pages upon pages of beautiful Forties outfits, complete with wigs, hats, and other accessories. All ready to cut out and play with!
Here's just a taste:
Now I'm not the type of person who makes his readers jump through hoops just to win a contest.
To enter, here's all you have to do:
Leave a comment below answering ONE of the following questions:
1) What was your favorite doll as a child and what did you like about it?
2) If YOU were a doll, what doll would you be and why?
3) If I were a doll, how would you market me, and to whom?
Length is up to you but, to quote the Bard, "Brevity is the soul of wit." Spelling counts, but creativity is more important.
I'll be busy sewing today but don't think I won't be checking in, And no copying from each others work; you're all adults (I think).
The cut-off time is this Sunday, Feb. 14, at 10 pm EST. The winner will be chosen by me, Michael, and Cathy, and announced on Monday.
While my heart knows no national boundaries, I am limiting the prize to residents of the United States.
