Duct Tape Contest

TerpCreek is having a contest. 

Two easy steps to enter the contest:
1. Become a follower of this blog
2. Click comments and answer this question. What do you use duct tape for?

This will be a lot of fun because there are so many uses for duct tape!

To get the ball rolling here is 1 way I use duct tape. I use it to remove lint or pet hair. Just rip it off 8 to 10 inches and roll it inside out and press on your sweater to remove link or pet hair. Works great!

Once you are a follower you can enter as may times as you want but each time has to be a new idea or use of duct tape.

Each entry will be numbered then a number will be picked randomly. There will be 1 winner for every 100 ideas in the comments. Remember only one idea per comment.

The prize will be one free 5" x 7" pencil sketched portrait of one pet or one child. This may turn into a surprise box as I am going to try to get other sponsors to also contribute a prize. If you would like to contribute a prize just email me for details at

Good Luck
