I'm not sure if you all enter a lot of giveaways on blogs, but I do. Well, I did. I never won anything so I just gave up.
Leave it up to my husband to win the first giveaway he's ever entered. Our newspaper was having a giveaway for the month of June and lo and behold he won. Do you want to know what that lucky duck won? A freakin' iPad. The really cool thing is that he was actually the runner up. The first winner never claimed the prize. I know, go figure.
When Chef went to the newspaper offices to pick up the prize he spotted a cart with newsprint rolls. Upon closer examination he saw they were for sale! They call these end rolls, but wow there must be 100's of feet left on those rolls. He said they had two different widths. He bought the narrower (42") for just $5.00
I was almost more excited about the paper than the iPad. Almost ;)
Did you all know you can go to your local newspaper and buy this stuff? I had no idea. I wonder if it's common. I'm going to test it out and see if it's good for tracing patterns. Probably not transparent enough.
The kids were so excited about the giveaway. They want us to enter more. They clearly think iPad is a huge roll of crafting paper. I plan on winning an iPad for myself so I'm back on the giveaway hunt!
