Greetings November

Now that BLOGTOBERFEST is behind us and we're all left wondering what to do with all the spare time not spent in front of the computer it's time for a fresh giveaway. You'll have to do some work for this one though.

I need your help with names. You know I'm working on some super serious secret squirrel business which I'm hoping to launch very soon. I need a group of names to categorise sizes of things from mini through to extra large (including small, medium and large). It has to be a group of words that most people can relate to and understand. I'm looking for something that has international appeal too.

Some words that you might like to keep in mind are tins, fabric, vintage, collage, paper, books, buttons and notions.

What's in it for you? Well, you get to be the first to learn about my secret squirrel business. Before anyone else has the chance to know about what I've been up to you'll have your very own crafty surprise in your possession.

I'm giving away two prizes. One for the person that comes up with the names and I'll also do a random prize draw for everyone who enters their ideas. You have till this Sunday to try your luck.

I'll offer up these sizes:
* the babe

* daddy
* and the granddaddy (which is, of course, the granddaddy monster of them all!)

oh!!! do I spy some buttons? in your squirrely business? I'm curious now...

Lisa said...

OK, here's what I thought up with (keep in mind its verry late)

mini = teeny-tiny
small = itty bitty
medium = not so big
large = biggish
extra large = humungous

Bec said...

How exciting, I can't wait to hear more about your secret squirrel business (sounds even bigger than my secret santa elf business :P).

Sorry I haven't had breakfast yet, so my suggestions are all food related....

mini: titbits
small: tea and biscuits
medium: picnic
large: dinner party
x-large: family get-together

Cheers, Bec
