Rob Ryan Helps Me Count the Days

Ever since I saw the pretty cut paper images by Amy of Angry Chicken and by Alicia of Posie Gets Cozy a while back, I've been thinking of trying my hand at a paper cutting project myself. In my internet perusal of the craft, I came upon the blog of Rob Ryan, whose work knocks my socks off.

Rob made the generous offer on his blog to send out free copies of his lovely remaining 2008 desk calendars, and I was lucky enough to receive one before he ran out of them. Actually, I was lucky enough to receive two. I smell a giveaway. And I smell a random guessing game to go along with it. If you're interested in receiving Rob's calendar, leave a comment here guessing the date of the last time I got my haircut (cut paper... hair cut... humor me, I know it's a stretch). It was within the last year (so guesses going back to April 2, 2007 are appropriate), and bang trims don't count. Leave your guess by midnight tomorrow, April 3rd, Portland/Pacific time, and I'll send the calendar to the closest guesser before the weekend. Oh, and if you have any great paper cutting references, I'd love to hear about those, too. The blove marches on...

Thanks for the great link! I used to do traditional German paper cutting quite a few years ago and just last week I was thinking about starting it again. I love his modern take on the craft!

And let's see, just for fun - I think you got your hair cut last on Feb. 4th.

Cool stuff! Just to humor you further, I'm picking 2/8/08 because C-U-T spells 2-8-8 on my work phone!

Erin said...

if someone guess correctly does that mean you are going to show us a picture of your hair? :o) You don't need to include me in the draw I do love the calendar but I have already won a give away on your blog before and don't want to be greedy!

I will guess that your last haircut was Jan. 12, 2008. Thanks for doing fun giveaways, they are like the adult equivalent of opening a box of cereal with a toy when I was a kid.

maura said...

I am guessing Jan. 18th.
I hope I win!

maura said...
