Sunday, September 10th

Find the Team Game.  The team will move around 10 a.m. Eastern time each day.  Make sure you wait to find us until we’ve moved or your entry won’t count.  Yesterday we were on the Donors Page.  Where are we today??

Find us today and send an email with the location before 2:00 p.m. this afternoon Eastern time, Sunday, September 10th, and be entered in a drawing for a prize.   Please use the subject line:  “Find The Team Sunday.”  The team will move every night, so look for us again tomorrow!  

Vendor Match.  Okay, by now you think you’ve seen it all and shopped ’till you dropped…but you’re going to have to check out those sales tables one more time to play this game!  Print out the .pdf file here.  You’ll see a column of vendors and a column of clues about what’s on their pages.  Match the vendor to the clue (one example is already done for you).  Then take a picture of the completed puzzle or scan the completed puzzle and email it before 2:00 p.m.  Eastern time, Sunday, September 10th, and be entered in a drawing for a prize.  Please use the subject line:  “Vendor Match.”

Whimsical Words.  How many words can you make from the letters in “It’s a Whimsical Life?”    “It’s”, “a”, “Whimsical” and “Life” don’t count.  But see how many OTHER words you can make.  Email your list, including the number of words that you made before midnight tonight Eastern Time, Saturday, September 9th.  Use the subject line “Whimsical Words.”   We will do a random drawing from the 10 entries with the most words.  

Horton Puzzle.  We found this picture and thought it fit with the theme of the weekend and with our miniature hobby!  So we converted it to a jigsaw puzzle.  You can find the jigsaw puzzle here:  https://www.jigsawplanet.com/?rc=play&pid=12327a7e89ef

Work the puzzle…take a picture of your screen showing the completed puzzle (if you don’t know how to do that, you can just send an email saying that you did because who is going to lie about completing a Horton jigsaw puzzle?) before midnight tonight Eastern Time, Saturday, September 9th and be entered in a drawing for a prize.  Use the subject line “Horton”.  

Here’s another great quote for us from Horton Hears a Who!  ”Our buildings to you would seem terribly small, but to us who aren’t big, they are wonderfully tall”.

Find the Team Game.  The Whimsy House made us think of Dr. Suess.   So this is a picture of our Team.
