C is for Cookie’s Gemstone Name

The past 2 weeks, we have been running a contest to find the gemstone name for Cookie’s hoof clipping jewelry. If you look at the Results! post, you’ll see, we had a tie in voting…between Cookillium and Midnight Meteorite.

We turned to the Camouflage hat to determine the winning name…

I printed the 2 names 10 times each.

I figured 10 of each name would give a fair shot to both names in the drawing.

The Kid is always the one who does the draw...

We’ll be in touch with Paul shortly to get his prize to him.

In the meantime, the Board at Midnight Calico Farm has discussed the contest, and have decided that everyone who’s suggestion made it to the final 6 will receive a pendant of our choosing.
So, watch your emails folks, we’ll be in touch in the next couple of days to get your info and send out your prize. 🙂

C is for Cookie’s gemstone name, contest, and congratulations!

Results!

We had so many awesome suggestions for Cookie’s gemstone name! It was tough to narrow things down, but, after much discussion, a lot of goofing off, and some poop shoveling (4 horses live here…there’s always poop to shovel. 😉 ), we’re down to 6.

This is where you good folks come in again…in order to determine a winner, you get to vote. The gemstone name with the most votes will be the new name used on the jewelry made from Cookie’s hoof clippings. The person who suggested the winning name will be the one who wins the pendant.

Voting starts right now, and will go until June 4th at Midnight CST. Winner will be announced on Friday.
Good luck!

Cookie thanks you all for not suggesting names that call her a Dork...like her Mama does. ;)

We’re Having A Contest!

You all know I make jewelry from the Girls’ hoof clippings.
Or, if you didn’t know, I make jewelry from the Girls’ hoof clippings.
I clean them up, cut, polish, and set into pendants, pins, and the odd pair of earrings.

One of the things I do, is give every horse’s clippings a gemstone name.

6. If the winning gemstone name is suggested by more than one person, all the people’s names who suggested it will go into a draw, and the name pulled will win.

Whew. I think I covered it all. If not, feel free to ask!

Oh! But wait…what do you win, if you happen to choose Cookie’s gemstone name? Well, you will win this:
