[CONTEST] Win A Solid Brass Skull Card Holder

UPDATE: This contest is over and  Sarrah aka Sashi was randomly chosen as the winner. Thanks to everyone who entered for the great submissions. Stay tuned for more contests coming soon.....

Have you ever yearned to let the world know your place in it? Have you ever desired to hold a place for that special someone? Have you ever wanted to do so with your own personal skullified twist? Jewelry sculptor Herbert Hoover is here to bring fruition to your plans with this solid brass, and full of class, skull place card holder. The former president(just kidding) describes it best, "This little brass skull has a small slot in the crown along the suture line for holding a business card or place card. Makes for a macabre table setting, especially for a Halloween themed dinner, or a perfect business card display. Hand carved in wax, then cast in brass using the lost wax process."




In the spirit of the late president, this Herbert Hoover is following in the sharing movement by GIVING ONE OF OUR LUCKY READERS A SKULL PLACE CARD HOLDER OF THEIR OWN. This will be a sure fire way to let anyone know how you roll when it comes to presenting yourself, or someone else. With SKULLITUDE!


To be entered in this contest leave a comment stating what your personal card would say. It can be business related, but it's not necessary. For example, my personal card might read: "Tatman" - Skull Lover, Light Seeker, Champion of Positivity(or something like that).


[NOTE: If you're reading this on Facebook or Google+ then be sure to leave your comment on the original Skull-A-Day.com post if you want to be officially entered in the contest.]

IMPORTANT: Don't forget to include a way of contacting you(either an email in the post OR BE SURE your blogger profile has a working email link for you). Entries are only valid with this information.

You have until Midnight Eastern time Wednesday March 22nd to enter so don't wait... do it now.

Note: Due to international shipping costs this contest is limited to winners in the US and Canada only. Apologies go out to everyone else.

Of course you don't have to wait until the contest ends, or if you want to be sure you're a winner, then visit Herbert's site at POTUS31.com.  There's more bony stuff, jewelry, and even some snacks to enjoy.  Thanks for sharing, Herb!

Couchgirl13 said...

I'm just a stay at home mom. So no business cards here. My husband just found my I <3 Skulladay.com stickers, woohoo. So that is what my "card" would say. "I love Skulladay!"

P.S.

I would also use it for a recipe card holder in the kitchen, and a photo holder on the date of the passing of my best friend.

I had an internship at the Detroit Institute of Arts in the Education department, and I brought some of my skulls into work for my desk. At the time we were planning an exhibition on personal collections, and I was asked to contribute a photo of my skulls and skeletons.
