GIVEAWAY: Matryoshka Measuring Cups!


The people in my life know me so well – I got THREE sets of these for Christmas and Hanukkah! I love them so much, I thought I’d share the bounty by hosting a little giveaway.

These Matryoshka Measuring Cups by Fred M include a 3-layer matryoshka, with each side of each doll a different perfect measure to create 6 measuring cups between 1/4 cup and 1 full cup.

They’re so cute, you know you want them. As you know, I like to complain about my dislike of baking, but I have seriously been coming up with random things to bake just as an excuse to use them. And of course, Scarlet loves playing with them.

So for this giveaway, tell us what you would like to measure if only you could. I would like to know, if you laid it all out, the yardage of fabric scraps I have tossed. I would also like to know the weight of ruined cookie dough I have thrown away. However, I do not want to know the weight of cookies I have eaten since Thanksgiving.

Leave your comment anytime between now and midnight next Wednesday January 12th. We will randomly select a winner (with a US address) and announce next week. Tweet, stumble, and/or share the giveaway on facebook and leave another comment each time letting us know for an additional entry. Come back every day for new entries. Happy measuring!

I would like to know the length of hair I have cut from my head in my whole lifetime. And the total length of fabric I have cut.

But not the amount of cookie dough I have eaten, because that would just be disgusting.

I would like to measure the total weight of all the tiny strings I've thrown on the floor to be cleaned up later after sewing something! I bet it would be a gigantic uncontrollable ball of string!

I like yours about fabric scraps too. I bet that would just make me depressed though if you count failed projects!

I would like to measure the total weight of toys I pick up each day. It would definitely be more than the total weight of all the toys we own, since I pick up most of them several about a dozen times a day. Sometimes I think I'm like an ant – I can carry my weight in toys.

I would like to measure (and harness) the amount of energy my 4 kids have and then compare it to that of mine. I'm pretty sure each of theirs could surpass an alaskan sled dog and probably solve the nation's energy crisis if we just put them on a wheel and harnessed their power.

As for the giveaway, I would love to measure how much ink I've used in my printer at school (I teach 6th grade special education…LOTS of printed paperwork!).

And, a side note, I almost passed out when I saw these awesome measuring cups! Who knew they made a kitchen tool that I can actually enjoy!?! Ha! You see, I do 0-5% of the cooking in our family (a little spoiled, I know…hubby is a great cook, he enjoys it, I don't…and he grocery shops too – gasp!!), so I don't really get to enjoy any fun kitchen stuff since I don't use it. However, these little beauties would be so CUTE on sitting on our countertop…and cuteness is definitely something I can, and do, enjoy. And a bonus is that they're also super functional (for hubby, ya know). I'd love to look at these little guys each day, and it'd be awesome to have something in the kitchen that I can finally enjoy…haha. Thanks for such a fun giveaway and for sharing the love!

I received a set of these about a year ago from my sister-in-law and my 3 year old swiped them right away. I have yet to actually use them for baking. So what would I measure???? Hmmmmm….probably the gallons of tears spilled from the eyes of my 16 month old while I am making dinner and then I would measure the amount of food she throws on the floor during dinner and then after dinner I would measure the hugs, kisses and cuddles that come right before bed. See…I could definitely use a second set =).

GASP! These are adorable!!! What I would like to measure if I could, are the measuring devices I have broken, burned, or melted in my 11 1/2 years of marriage, because frankly I have lost count! This was the first Christmas I DID not ask for a measuring device of ANY KIND! BUT I LOVE to bake and am rather good at it (toot toot). Thank you for this giveaway, because I ADORE these.

I would like to measure the amount of sleep lost in raising two little ones back to back and how that contributed to my brain turning into mush. I can't even believe I took AP calculus in high school and now it takes me 10 minutes to figure out a simple algebra problem…like calculating fabric yardage for a project!! They're older now and sleep regularly so maybe my brain is recuperating.

I'd also like to know the amount of time I spend repeating myself. I think that would be an astronomical figure. I swear they just hear the Peanut's teacher when I open my mouth: Wha Wha Wha wawa Wha.

I'd like to know how many miles of writing I've done by hand if you stretched it all out into one long line.

I would LOVE to measure all the sewing thread my son has tangled up so bad with his adventures into my sewing basket that I've had to toss over the last 2 years!

I love these! I think it would be hard to keep them away from my four-year-old daughter though. She already loves the real nesting dolls I got as a gift from a friend who went to visit Russia many years ago.
I would love to measure all the hair I've cut off in my life. Would be interesting to me anyway!
