What are we playing for???

I had no idea how imaginative and FUNNY my readers are!

I'm going to set up a poll on Wednesday morning  and let you vote for your favorite words/definitions out of the list that I narrow it down to.  Please continue to share the letters that you see when posting a comment and the definition that you make up to go with the imaginary word that you make out of those letters,  until midnight onTuesday, 2/8.

The winner will be announced at 9pm on Wednesday evening and will get to pick out TWO bars of my homemade goat milk soap as their prize.

Choose from "plain" bars ~ like the "honey-almond" bar above.

Or fancy bars like this 'cinnamon' quilted sheep:

Or this lovely "spice" fragranced bar dedicated to the love of knitting with wool:

Our winner might prefer a heart-shaped soap for Valentine's Day:

Who could resist an "orange/clove scented, curly sheep?

You can see some of the other frangrances and options that are available in my
"Sheep Hugs & Soap Suds"  online store.

If you haven't played the GAME yet, or are unsure of the rules, check out the original post where I explained it.   You can also get a good idea of how the game is played by reading through the comments on the last three posts.  It's been a blast!

DREAM says...
"Dazzle asked me to remind you that you can enter as many times as you want but to please use a different comment for each entry.  And to be sure and keep the letters in the order that they appear in the little box.  Mom says you don't need any instructions on making up definitions because she's been cracking up in there, reading the ones that you've already been posting"

Good Luck!
