Contests, I’ve never been one for contests. Mostly because I never believed I could win. I remember the first time I went hiking alone. I was scared. I was going to hike Tongue Mountain on Lake George, there were warnings about rattlesnakes and bears. But I wasn’t afraid of either, I grew up with too many horror movies, I was afraid of the escaped psycho who lived in the woods waiting for lone hikers. So I thought, really, what are the chances. I won’t play the lottery because I believe I could never win, so why should my chances be better of meeting the psycho in the woods.
Sure, I thought if it’s something good it can’t happen to me, but if it’s bad……
So why not a contest? Why not spread some of the good stuff around? For all those out there who have, like me, said to themselves “I never win” maybe this is a chance to try again. If I can put it out there, you can try. Why am I so nervous? I guess because I’ve always felt that contests are chintzy, (maybe if I won some I’d feel different) all the more reason to do it. So this is for all those people, like me, who have never won a contest.
I’ll give away some potholders. I’ll make 3 potholders and you just have to choose which one you like and I’ll throw all the names in a bowl and pick the winners. If it works and it’s fun, I’ll keep doing it, if not, well…beware of rattlesnakes.
