He's not just "John Q. Owl off the internet." He's my own little owl and I forgot to reveal his purpose! I created this little hooter to put on the promo item I now include in every shipment!
(Maybe I shouldn't tell you - just require you order from the shop to find out...hmmmm...sneaky. Nah - that's not what HHS is about)
Ok, so here it is. Now, sweetly nestled in every package from Happily Home Sewn is a teeny tape measure featuring Owl-Not-So-John. I really gotta figure out a name for this little guy.
I could not be happier. I am my mother's daughter. My mother taught me never to leave home without a tape measure. She was a crafty type, prone to fits of sewing and makeshiftery. But she also dabbled in carpentry and side-of-the-road furniture procurement (click back to that post - it's a good one).
She was well served by always having something handy with which to measure to see if that crab trap will fit in the staircase to make a chandelier or how tall the sides of the South African Spur Thighed Tortoise enclosure need to be to prevent escape (true and true).
I've had many a clever little tape measure swimming around in the depths of my purse. One was a cow whose tail you pulled to get the tape out. Another was Pinocchio. But I think this one is oh so sweet, and a fitting representative of Happily Home Sewn.
Dizzle thinks they are for him. All 250 of them.
Here's a thought. Let's name this smart brown owl. Give me name suggestions. If I choose your name I'll send a tape measure your way, enclosed with a Happily Home Sewn treat of your very own (something owl-y - if you're the winner, we'll talk).
There will be two prizes. One will be picked randomly and one will go to the wordsmith who comes up with the cleverest name for Owl-not-so-John. Get creative...and good luck!
To Enter (clarified since first posting this - sorry for the confusion - chalk it up to excitement!):
- 1 entry: Comment with your name suggestions (you can offer lots of suggestions (please do), but suggesting names only gets you one entry).
