Penny’s Tips Volume 37

Hi everyone. Penny has a tip for you today, but first I want to apologize to all who tried to visit on Monday and couldn’t get to the post. I updated some plug-ins and something went wrong. GoDaddy was able to restore and get the blog back , but so far Monday’s post is missing. If it doesn’t return, I will redo it because I want all the letters for the A-Z challenge.

Now on to Penny. 

Hi everyone! I have a great tip for you today. You can use pennies to have a contest. You can fill a jar and have people guess how many are in the jar. I am having a contest today, Emmy said I can give away a copy of her book, I Am Not A Skunk. Whoever guesses how many pennies are in this sugar bowl is the winner. Sorry, my cheap mom said we can only mail in the USA. If more than one of you guesses correctly, I will draw names. You have until Friday at 9 PM ( EST) to put your guess on this post. I will announce the winner on Saturday’s post. Good luck!

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

And today is T day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge. T is for toys and to save money you can make your own.  As you know, I crochet toys and sew catnip mats, but you don’t even have to crochet or sew to make toys. You can take a sock, fill it with nip and tie the end. Check Pinterest for more ideas too.



  1. I was wondering what happened to your blog today! I won’t guess because I already have a copy of Emmy’s book, but that is a great idea for a contest.

  2. Counting the pennies is a great idea for a contest, Penny! I have a book ordered so I won’t guess on this one. Sorry you had technical problems. A few weeks back I was locked out of my blog because I tried to change my name! I’m still working on it but afraid to push the button!

    1. Thank you for buying a book, I appreciate your support. I am afraid to update plug-ins now. XO

  3. I’m glad you’re back! 🙂 WordPress gremlins at work! They visit my site now and then, as well. Happy Tuesday and thank you, Penny for the tips. 🙂

  4. I think there are 274 pennies in the bowl.

    I love the tip.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. My best to your mom. ♥

  5. What a great tip! Good luck to everyone who enters. Since we already have a copy, we won’t enter. (P.s. the review will go up next week!)

  6. Technology can be so strange and pesky sometimes. Today is the first day since Sunday that I’ve been able to see your newest posts. It’s so strange! Penny, your tip is so fun and purrfect. I’ve always enjoyed the kinds of contests that require guesses like this, even though I’m often not very good at them. I would guess there are 339 pennies in the bowl. And your A to Z tip is wonderful and so true. Some of our kitties’ favorite toys are the ones you have made, Ellen, and ones my mom has sewn. Homemade is the way to go!

    1. Thank you for your guess. Good luck! 🙂 And thanks for letting me know your kitties are still enjoying their toys. XO

  7. Aaaaaaaaaaaw Penny, you’re too cute. Your mommy’s not cheap, the world is spensive. MOL Good luck to everypawdy, they’re gonna luv Emmy’s book. Big hugs

    Luv ya’
