Three Hundred, Yo!

This week, a fun little coincidence came to my attention. I made it to 300 posts here at the sulu-design blog, and I made it to 300 sales at the sulu-design etsy shop. I love coincidences. Too much. So I thought it was time to celebrate with a sulu-design giveaway. Here's the deal:
I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 300. I got it from a random number generator on the web... I generated three numbers and took the third, just in case you're curious. I can't get enough of that number three. Anyway, if you want to play along, post a comment below that includes a number from 1-300. Make sure that you leave your comment on this post, and please comment only once. Do it before Sunday evening, 10 p.m. NYC time. Monday morning, I'll post my secret number and the name of the reader who guessed closest to it. That reader will receive one pair of earrings from the sulu-design etsy shop - the choice is hers.
Thanks to all of you lovely readers for sticking with me through 300 posts (especially the long-winded ones, of which there were many), and for all of your support and encouragement along the way. It continues to be a such fun ride...

LeeAnn said...

300 is such a big number. And so many 300's too. Congrats on all the sales! I would have celebrated with an ice cream cake. Maybe 3 ice cream cakes. Or three ice cream cones in three days. OK. My number- 166. It's my final offer.

kat said...

The Lenart's said...

I love your site and all your designs. Speachless. Just looking at your earings gives me ideas how to dress, what to do with my hair to make jewelry pop. Amazing. Congratulations.

My pick is 56.

P.S. I am posting my 300th post today and celebrating 5th wedding anniversary. I love happy coincidences.

Sonya said...

Congratulations Susan! I'm not going to compete, since I've had a weird run of luck with these sorts of things. Got to let the others have their shot at some fab sulu designs.

Henna said...

I am guessing 113.

sarai said...

Congrats on your big 300s!

Erin said...

Wow - 300 post! Congrats. Okay I am going to guess my age, 36. So far 36 has been a good year for me! Have an excellent weekend Susan. BTW...I know I am one of those long-winded or as I prefer to call it "Verbose" commenters you are referring to!

Lynn said...

You are too funny. In spirit of random picking numbers, I got mine from the random number generator from excel. 105.

picperfic said...

ok...I pick 32 and I have a good reason. It is 32 days to the day that my ex has to pay me my divorce settlement, it's been a hard struggle fro the last three years but it will soon be over...then I can breathe again and maybe even order some of those square earings I covet!

Village Vegan said...

I'll go with 8 - the number of days left in our nyc teaching careers!

Maryam in Marrakesh said...
