Gone Overboard contest...?

Hey swappers! I just realized that not all of you are on Ravelry and therefore you can't comment on my posts there. Doh!

I'm thinking of holding a contest on my blog for the Spoiler who went over the most. To be fair, I'll ask for entries to tell me what your spending limit was and what you spent. I'll subtract the limit from your overboard total and the one who went overboard the most, will win. To enter, you'll have to post a comment to my blog with the information. The final key is this: Entries would open on the deadline for mailing our swap packages (12 April 2008) and close on 1 May 2008---that will give you two weeks to enter.

Does this sound like fun for all you who spent too much? Can you drop a comment on this post to say you'll likely enter (or not), so I can see if there's enough interest? If there is, I'll announce the contest on my blog on the 12th.

What kind of a prize should I assemble? Suggestions? Hints? Ideas? Not everyone in this swap is a knitter (my main craft), so I'd like some ideas that will cross all craft boundaries, if possible. Maybe I can tailor the winner's package a little too, depending.



P.S. No, I won't be allowed to enter my own contest. *sigh*

Count me in, too! I'll likely go way over since I haven't been very good about tracking how much I've spent. As for ideas, maybe a little bit of craftiness that crosses all the craft genres - yarn (even non-knitters, like scrapbookers, can use yarn, ribbon, buttons, a pair of cute scissors, pretty paper or note cards...I have tons of ideas!

or what about a GC to a local yarn or craft shop?
