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.

(Mine probably wouldn't even power a small lamp 😉
I would like to measure the number of diapers I've changed, between my own 3 children and 11 years of teaching preschool. It might give me a sense of accomplishment about a chore I usually resent!

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 =).

OK, I could write something like "I would like to measure the weight of how many times I said 'Go to bed!' in the last hour". But really I just want to say, "Oh. My. Heck. Those are the cutest things I've ever seen!" And say that I hope to win because I have got to send these to my dad. He studied Russian and was a translator for the Air Force during the Cold War. I think he'd get a kick out of these!(fingers crossed!)

I posted this on FB.
I wish I had measured my children's heights and marked them on the wall.

These are terrific – a Matryoshka doll was what saved us on our first east-west coast flight with our 2 year old. I would like to measure (or just know the measure!) of the amount of thread I've run through learning to sew in the past year and a half. Hello, seam ripper…

If I could measure anything, I would want to measure all the clipped threads from all the quilting projects I have done and will do. I save them anyhow and use them to stuff the dolls I make seasonally. Of course there is never enough because it is so small, so I also have to use the scraps of fabric left over as well as batting, (LOVE to recycle) but it would be really cool to know just how much thread gets "wasted" in a project
I would be curious to know how many minutes/hours/seconds my husband and I spent on the phone when we dated long distance. I'd measure that:)
These are too cute!
So cute…there is this thing about these dolls, in fabric, as toys, wherever you use these, they turn out very cute.
I have so many things I would like to measure
..the number of times my daughter goes bananas making faces…she loves it..

I would like to measure the size of the smile on my little girls face when she is playing.

I would love to know how much time I spend reading craft blogs instead of working on my plethora of projects I have started…
Those cups are so cute!

I LOVE these measuring cups by the way!! I have recently developed an obsession with nesting dolls. I actually gave handpainted sets of them to three friends/family members for Christmas!!! They're so cute!!
I so want these!!!
I would like to measure the amount of hair I've lost since having a baby 4 months ago. In fact, I was scared to cook anything over the holidays b/c I was horrified at the thought of someone finding a hair in their food. Yuck! But I'm sure this phase will pass and I'd be super excited to retunr to baking with some cute new measuring cups!
I'm sure this has been mentioned already, but I'd like to lay out all the cloth diapers my daughter has used in these first 6 months of her life and see how far I could go if I started from Texas to take a roadtrip… Would they get me to the West Coast, East Coast or just to El Paso? (I'm horrible at sizing things up to measure them, did I mention THAT already?)
Also I'd like to know the amount of blood I've lost these 34 years of life on this planet. Grotesque, but I'd really like to know…

Oh how I would love these – what a way to start the new year if I am the lucky winner!!
I wish I could measure the weight of the amount paper, glass, plastic, etc. that I'm saving from going into the dumpster by recycling. I would love to be able to tell people how much trash I save from the landfill when they look at me crazy when I don't throw things away.
As a Ukrainian, I have found myself oogling over these since I saw them a few months ago. I would love to measure the hopes and dreams of the children of the world. They have so much positive energy that I think just the knowledge of how much would bring a smile to everyones' faces.
I really, really, really want these – I wish I could measure how cool I think they are 🙂
So cute! I would measure the hugs and kisses I get from my granddaughter!

Those are adorable! I'd love to measure the amount of days I should have called in sick but didn't cuz I'm a goody two shoes… 😉
The weight of the tears cried during those first few stressful weeks of being a new mom (which was just this past July for me).
I would like to measure CORRECT ingredients the right way so that I can make some dinner for my husband one day. I always mix mexican spices with italian dishes, etc, and at a crazy big amount. 🙁 I'm barred from the kitchen, and I would like to contribute!

I would measure out all the gallons of uneaten bean soup. I know that beans are good for me, and I know that soup is awesome as a one-pot-and-you've-got-enough-to-last-for-several-days dish, but for some reason whenever I actually make bean soup I never want to eat it.
Love them! Want them!

That or, I'd love to measure all the wet and sloppy kisses my little girls give me and dole them out when there not so little anymore!
I would like to measure all the oatmeal that has gone uneaten by my kids so far this winter!
Oh, I know I won't win, but those are so cute. I would like to measure the amount of patience it takes to potty train. I think I'm a few pounds short and will still be lifting dirty diapers for a while. 🙂 such is life.
Wow. These are so utterly and completely adorable that my heart actually skipped a beat back there. I'll post on FB too, but I'm kind of tempted not to…. With such cuteness, who really wants to share?
I would like to measure the amount of time I've spent working on my house. Since the house is old and always needs new work, and we've just had to paint new trim, it feels like ages.

How about diapers I've changed? That could be an impressive total.
I would like to know the weight of ruined pizza dough (and bread dough) I have thrown away. Ah… someday…I'll get them both right.
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 "liked" you on FB and shared a link also ;o)

Like on FB!
What beautiful little measuring cups!
I would love to measure the distance my two year old covers each day. 🙂
I would measure/weigh all the kisses I have received from my two (almost three) year old. Actually he LOVES these fit into type of things and he is my kitchen helper.

I love these, I love these, I LOVE these!!!!!
I would like to measure the amount of chocolate I've eaten so far in my life…. just to see:)
ADORABLE little cups!
I would like to measure how many chocolate chips I have eaten each day @ my daughters' nap times. I usually sit on my computer & read blogs while sneaking just a 'few' chocolate chips. My mind says I have about 10 a day but my hips…girl, they tell a different story! 😉
I'd love to know how much breast milk I have produced for my daughter since she was born. Just thinking about it makes me think that my body is totally awesome.
I would love to measure how far my 2 1/2 yr old runs in a single day (around a chair, back and forth from living room to kitchen, in circles, up stairs and back down….). Seriously, if I ran that much I would be ready for a marathon!

Oh, how many cribs, strollers, car seats, high chairs, etc… have been broken and then scrapped because of us trying to be cheap?

I would like to measure the love my 7 yr old grandson has for helping in the kitchen. These would be perfect for him to learn about measurements. We would have a ball.

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.
Oh and I adore these, not sure if my husband would use them for his weekend pancake recipe but just seeing them on my counter might just inspire me a little more!
I would like to measure how many miles I have gone on trips. These are wayyy cute!

WANT! Don't know why, tho. My kitchen is 3×3 feet, and cook I like 5 meals a day, and still, started collecting (and displaying!!!) stuff like that some months ago… Definitelly adding that the cart at Amazon (as they have a crazy discount going on – 26cents off the normal price!).
I'd like to measure all the ingredients for cookies properly (so as not to waste any) while in college.
I'd like to measure the amount of laundry detergent I've used since my children were born. I feel like I am always washing something.

Wow! These are awesome!I love them but I have a suspicion that my kids would love them even more. Like baking time isn't fun enough all ready!
I would like to know the yardage of all the scraps in my knitting stash.
Too adorable for words
I want to know exactly how many second I have wasted and how many moments I remember and how many steps I've even taken and how many thoughts I've ever had. I'm a curious little booger, aren't I?
If I could I would like to measure the (immeasurable) patience my family has had with me as I've tried to (re)develop allergy friendly recipes for my son… some have been real flops, but we're committed keeping him safe from the things that make him dangerously ill, while trying to give him all the sweet treats and delicious memories every kid should have. I think my son and I would really enjoy measuring out ingredients together (he's now reading and doing simple math) with these cups. These would be a sweet, iconic way to remember cooking with Mom – the very design of these cups says "Mama"!
I've seen these several times on the web! Sooo cute! If I could measure anything… Well, perhaps the miles I've spent up in the air, flying oh so many times across the ocean, between my country and the USA…
Sorry, I don't do Twitter, Facebook or any of those… So, I don't have a right for an extra entry?? 🙁
Those cups are awesome!!
I love to measure the amount of hair I have shaved off my legs since I started shaving!!

Then I would like to measure how many homemade wipes I used after my "Wipes Stash" from the Diaper and Wipes shower my friends gave me, ran out. You know, link them end to end and watch them drape across the earth like garland on a christmas tree, around and around and around. . . Then again, maybe not
I would love to know how many pounds of sugar I used for just this holiday season. I cannot even begin to tell you how much a I baked this holiday. (including thanksgiving)
I would love to win them. I think it would be so cute sitting out on my counter.
imisstx at comcast dot net
LOVE these measuring cups. I would use them while trying to find the perfect bread recipe that I can make over and over for daily use! FUN!
These are adorable. I love quirky little things like that. For Christmas, my husband bought me salt and pepper shakers that he had made to look like our kids. lol Very cheesy, but they're great. Plus, my 3 year old son gets a kick out of shaking pepper out of his head.
If I could measure anything it would be the amount of coffee I've wasted over the years. I always feel like I want a cup, but never finish it.

I'd measure the weight of all the clothing that has been ruined since having kids 15 years ago.
Between projectile baby barf, coffee spills at 5 am after a night of zero sleep, marker mishaps & pretty much every craft project, it's got to be a lot. Totally worth it, mind you…I'd just like to know.
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.
Last but not least, I'd like to know the exact amount of guilt each child feels when they're in trouble. It would make parenting so much easier. I have a sneaking suspicion it is always zero…my middle might one might score 20% on a good day. Otherwise, zero all around but I can't prove it.
tweeted it. =)
@retrogirl02 cutest measuring cups…ever

I want to win those little cuties!!! I promise to measure everything possible with them if I win. mfsbailey at gmail
Hmmmm, I think what I would measure is how many times in a day I actually sing and act goofy and for my kids. I do NOT want to measure how many times I sing and dance in the bathroom while getting ready though, that would be scary!!! 🙂
I would be curious to know the amount of burnt food, tasteless food or just inedible food I have thrown away in my attempts to learn to cook. I can bake but cooking…not my strong suit.

Also, I think these measuring cups are FABULOUS!

If I could stack up a pile of all the papers my 6 year old has deemed "treasures" and measure it – that would be an interesting project. I'm pretty sure it would be taller than my house!
we love matryoshkas (matryoshki is a proper plural in Russian) around here. And these are cutest and oh so practical.
I'd measure the number of kisses I give my kids each day and wrap up that many kisses for any day I have to be away from them. With a few extras thrown in of course!
Posted on FB again today!
Mmmm…I would want to measure impact I am having on my children't lives..I am always feeling like I don't do enough, ah the plight of the mother…but if I could measure the weight of my life in theirs, I'm sure it would warm my heart over and over and over…alas, I guess I'll have to settle for that day far in the future when they get to tell me themselves what I meant to them

I LOVE these! If I don't win, I am going to have to buy some. I would love to measure how much fabric I have used since starting sewing a few years ago. Maybe I should measure how much fabric is in my stash and then use it up!
I'd just like to measure some plain old flour, sugar, spices, etc. with these adorable measuring cups! 🙂 Thanks for the great giveaway!
Would love to know amount of breast milk my baby has had during her 11 days of life. What a little feeder! Want those cute cups!

Love these! I think I'd like to measure/count the number of equations I have solved in my life. Being a math teacher, maybe I should work on figuring out that number 🙂
Okay so I usually comment thinking that I have said something inspiring or insightful or witty but it turns out NOT SO MUCH!
NOW I WILL JUST PLEAD!!! I have a nine year old daughter who wakes up and begs to cook us all breakfast. So pancakes a few weeks ago consisted of an entire-entire box of Bisquick (no I am not kidding, they were stick to your ribs thick). She has been perfecting her craft. So my plead is for the learning and enjoyment that this would give my little chef. Anything that helps her follow directions is AMAZING! I would love to inspire her to follow the directions more on the recipes she chooses with these beauties. Plus, they would be so cute on display in my turn of the century kitchen (it is actually a huge kitchen) which is great to cook in. THANK YOU FOR SHARING A GREAT PRIZE.

Sigh. I forgot to include what I'd measure in my original post. SORR.
I would measure the increase in happiness between the first 30 years of my life and when I met and married my husband at 32, because I bet the difference is astronomical.
i so hoped someone would get these for Liv & I for the holidays, alas not, so this is our chance! Liv loves Russian dolls and loves to help me measure when we bake so these are a joyful indulgence.
If I could I would measure the amount a momma's heart breaks when her baby has her first hacky cough and fever, the sound of every cough weighs so heavy. I guess the opposite would be the bursting joy when that same child giggles with delight – pure glee. Do you have a spoon in your magic kitchen to measure those?
What a fun, thought-provoking question! (And such cute measuring cups, obvi.)
I'd like to measure:1) How many words I know; 2) How many pounds of garlic I've eaten in my lifetime (yum! however many it is, it's not nearly enough!); and 3) How many books I've read.

I would measure the amount of food thrown away that my kids won't try. SO PICKY! Someday they will eat more than white bread… right?

I would like to measure out the amount of chicken broth we drink in a year (from all the soups we eat). I am sure it would be a surprising amount.
Ooh I'd love those, I hope I win!
I'd like to measure how much wine I drank over the holidays, lol!
Honestly, I'd love to find a measuring tape that would shrink my waist while measuring, and although I don't think having these cups would allow that to happen they are too dang cute not to enter.
Super cute! I want them!
I would love to measure how much tea my husband has left unfinished in his glass..I swear that man NEVER finishes a glass of tea!

I love these! Something I would like to measure (and I can but I can't bring myself to do it out of fear) is the amount of money I have spent on fabric this past year (2010). Could be scary.
How about measuring the amount of time I spend looking at these types of blogs all over the internet, but I do love finding a good giveway! 🙂
I'd like to know exactly how much peanut butter cream cheese frosting I made last year, since I made the cake it goes with a whopping FIVE times by request!
I would LOVE to measure the sleep lost for each child. Oh sure it would be a running tally, but I would keep on measuring and measuring!
lol I've wanted those ever since I spied them at Pier 1… Unfortunately I was doing Christmas shopping and never had enough in my budget to get them before they were gone… They are the cutest things ever!
I would like to measure all the fabric in my sewing room.lol also all the paper in my craft room.. I would love to measure all the love I have for my little grandson who turns 1 on Friday. email@example.com
Really would love to measure how many times my blood pressure fluctuated during the time I wrote this little comment while my computer decided to "Cut-out" on me so many times that I had to take a break and make myself a cup of tea before Starting Over AGAIN for the UMTEENTH time! :o) But I FINALLY DID IT! :o)
Ahh These are so totally cute. I have been thinking of them all weekend!!!
I would like to measure how many threads I have thrown away while sewing. 🙂
And I would love to have these measuring cups!!
Love these! Gee… I guess I'd measure flour, sugar, dried cranberries, rice, oatmeal… just the ordinary things.
Oh, so cute! I would like to measure how many times I've laughed in the last year.
I would like to know the number of hairs I've shedded since the birth of my baby. It's been 6 months and I'm still shedding like a fiend!
Yeay – need these!
those are the cutest ever and would look so good on my kitchen counter!
Ok, this I need :D. Really! They would make me keep my kitchen cleaner [yeah, I'm blushing now] 'cause it would be a shame not to see them, right? Plus, the kid would be delighted to make cookies with them and hopefully, because we don't use american cups, the cookies will stink and I won't eat them and I won't get even fatter (is that reallt a word? it's how I feel :))) ) So, you see, you don't need random to pick on this, I neeeeed them :))))
I would like to know the amount of garlic I have cooked with (I use it alot and often double the amount required). I would also like to know the amount of dust I clean up from my house each year. We live in a very sandy area, so twice daily sweeping is normal.
I would love to measure how many miles of painting strokes I've made.
These are so cute! I would measure the amount of time I have wasted trying to save time…
These are adorable! I LOVE matryoshka dolls!! I'd love to have these in my kitchen! Too cute!
I would like to know the amount of time I've spent dealing with inane requests from clients.
Love those measuring cups!
i would like to know the number of steps i take each day while carrying a baby, so that i can tell that to my husband next time he says i should go to the gym more.
I would NOT like to measure the amount of dog poo I throw over our back fence (it's a good thing we live at the back of the neighborhood and have a pasture behind us). We have a Great Dane and a Boston Terrier and I know they produce a lot of poo.
I would love to know the amount of pancake and waffle batter that I made while I was pregnant this last time. . .or maybe I don't want to know!!
I just stumbled upon your blog this past weekend, and I love it! Thanks for all the cute ideas and tutorials!
These are adorable and I've been eyeing them for some time. If I could I would like to measure the amount of pizza my husband has eaten – just to make a point about his bad eating habits!
One thing I would like to measure? The distance I walked/ran around the house during the time all 4 girls and hubby had the stomach flu. Running for buckets, carrying kids to the bathroom, running to the kitchen…my legs were just as sore as if I had ran a couple miles the day before. Honestly, I would've much rather ran the miles than dealt with stomach flu mess..ew.
Win or lose, these meauring cups, the measuring spoons and the key covers are going to be mine. Can we say Happy Valentine's Day to me? Love, love, LOVE!!!!
unbelievably adorable, i could totally use those!
I would like to measure the amount of food that our 16 month old daughter "donates" to our pup each meal.
I would like to know the measurment of how much packing tape I have used to pack my damn house while getting ready to move.
and how much blood i have lost in the process.
If I could, I would love to measure all of the good from good deeds, notions, and really good people in the world and bake it into a lovely pie for the rest of humanity to eat and take in. :]
I would like to know the length of all of the ribbon, string, yarn and tulle that I have handed over to my 4 year old daughter while crafting. "Mommy, can I have some so I can make someting too? Just a little bit so I can make – enter fanciful creation here – ?"
geez, I love her.
These measuring cups are too cute! I think I'm going to have to buy them for myself. Mainly because I never win these things. But thank you for sharing and giving me a great idea! I love your craft items, too. I can't wait to try the Basic Bias Tape bag!
I'd like to measure how much laughter we've shared as a family since my daughter was born!
This is so neat, I just saw these measuring cups on Amazon.com recently. I'd love to have a set. We are about to buy our first house, and the kitchen is a decent size but not huge.. With severe allergies and dietary restrictions in the family, we spend a great deal of time in the ktichen. So I was looking for ways to cut down on space and items. The nesting measuring cups is a really cute way to do that!

I would measure all of the time I have wasted feeling guilty about silly things so that I could measure out twice as much grace to myself- and to all the mamas around me!
My daughter would LOVE those! She is 2 years old but my little cooking buddy. She has taught me that pink cooking tools are always better, cute makes the job ten times more fun and those dolls would bring a squeal of delight to our cooking!
I would like to measure all of the "I love you's" I have thought, felt, and said. http://www.oliviaseden.com
Oh, these are wonderful! I'd be interested in measuring how much hair i've cut in my lifetime or how much energy is created with a smile. Thanks!
Yay, I need these! I have much to measure.
My 18 month-olds favorite Christmas ornaments to remove from the tree and lose were the nesting nutcrackers. I'm sure as a fervent and devoted kitchen drawer raider she would love to get her hands on these. Maybe we could have joint custody over them, I'd get them on weekends for baking, and she'd get them for playdough during the week.
I would like to measure the amount of spit up my son has puked all over me since he's been born!
I would measure my happy tears since the birth of our baby girl.
How cute it makes you want to cook!
I would love to measure how much expired food I throw away after finding it in my father in law's freezer, fridge and pantry each time I check. I am sure, that if it were still 2003, we could effectively feed all of France. 🙂 It's ok though, he says it's still good.
OMG those are amazing!
I posted on FB as well. 🙂
I would like to measure the love I have for my daughters and granddaughter. Shared on Facebook.
I would like to know how many loads of laundry I have done in my life.
I would measure everything. From flour for cookies to dog food for my doggies!
So cute! I would love to measure the number of stitches I've sewn on my sewing machine!
Perfect! I would measure the amount of dog + cat fur "lovingly" stuck to me each day. Actually, probably don't want to know…
These are adorable. I don't really want to know the answer, but I am curious about the weight of all the food we waste (sincerely working on this!).
I tweeted a link to the giveaway for an extra entry 🙂
I would like to measure the quantity of love, cute giggles and smiles my babies have freely given me in the past 3 years.
Oooh, so cute!
Thanks for sharing your bounty with us!
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've been coveting these!!! And I melted a hole in my 1/4 cup over xmas (it touched a baking sheet for too long)!
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!
I would measure LOVE!!
Aww this is cute and useful cannot beat that!
I would SO LOVE to have these beautiful cups! It would make baking even more fun!
