[CONTEST] Win a Chalkboard Skull Sculpture!

THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING!


Need something a little quirky for your message writing needs? The team at iamhome has the perfect thing for you, a Chalkboard Skull. "Our chalkboard skulls are life sized (a 20 something year old female) and are made one at a time in our studio. We hand rotocast a silicone mold with urethane plastic, sand and sandblast the skull and spray it with chalkboard paint." To share the love of skulls, they would like to give away a Chalkboard Skull to one lucky Skull-A-Day fan!



"iamhome is a collaborative effort run by Sarah Belknap and Joseph Belknap out of a studio workshop in Cicero, Illinois. Our mission is to produce quality handmade products with a strong design influence and an emphasis on color." The lucky winner will be receiving one of the Chalkboard Skulls in their choice of black, grey, or mint.

Leaving a message on a skull is a great way to get your thoughts known. To enter this contest leave a comment telling us what message you would leave on a skull. It could be a grocery list, a reminder, a poetic musing, or something else. Whatever ever your choice is, please leave the comment below, as your entry.

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

Don't forget to include a way to contact you (either an e-mail in the post OR make sure your Blogger profile has a working e-mail link for you on it). Entries are only valid with this information.

You have until just Midnight Eastern Time Wednesday, July 4th to enter so don't delay!

NOTE: iamhome will pay for the shipping to the winner. They will ship First Class for International, and Priority Mail for USA.

Of course you don't need to wait till the end of the contest to get your own iamhome creation. Visit their shop to purchase one or more of their Chalkboard Skulls, in a large variety of colors and two styles.

Gee what would I write?
Well on creative days I would probably enscribe this quote from E.A.Poe:

"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before."

on normal days, I'd write this quote from M.E. Fullerton:

"Thou cage and shell of ancient busy Thought,
Nurse-house of Soul, the domicile of him
Long fled thy osseous walls that Nature wrought
To please proud Time’s caprice and passing whim;
’Twixt two eternities a moment caught,
He rose from thee to join the seraphim."

and when I need to remind myself, I'd just write my lil reminders on it.

A vegan grocery list, more than likely. Then when I go to the grocery store and erasing things off the list, I can do an impromptu soliloquy from Hamlet.

There really isn't just one statement I would write on this skull. More like an array of obnoxiousness for the student's that come to the computer lab I work at.

But I think "Closed" might be frequently written on it.

Nevermore.

Top 5 things I would do with a chalkboard skull:
1) Re-enact scenes from Hamlet
2) Write morbid haiku on it
3) Write inappropriately cheerful haiku
4) I'm an artist, so Sugar Skull designs would be pretty much mandatory (also, this would look great by my drawing table)
5) Write top five lists on it

"Never say Diet"

Not my usual best, since I just found out and am under duress! Last few sound like Garfield's cat skull, ugh! Rolling my eyes. Cheers S-A-D!

I'd write reminders for the kids on it, I'm sure they'd pay more attention if the skull told them to do it ......... or should I leave messages for myself & if I get in trouble I could just say "The skull told me to do it!"

Richard Smith said...

I'd take it on road trips and set it up for photo ops with the name of the location on them, then create a "50 places to visit before you die" blog post that would blow people's minds. Er, skulls.
