Prize: One ounce of the following liquid colors; Violet, Brown, Toxic Waste, Pink, White, Blue, Non-Bleeding Red, Yellow Jelly, Black, Green, Orange, Red Oxide, Red Jelly and Liquid Yellow. PLUS two plastic (slightly less than perfect) loaf molds and three surprise (also slightly less than perfect) ELF molds!
Contest: There are three ways you can enter the contest. Do all three and get three entries into the drawing!
ONE: Tweet a link to my blog post on the Safe Cosmetics Act: “Safe Cosmetic Act” Not So Safe For Small Biz.Make sure to @brambleberry me at the end of the tweet so I see it. =)
TWO: Post a lnk to the Safe Cosmetic Act blog post on your Facebook page. Be sure to tag the post with @brambleberry so we can count your entry.
THREE: CC or send me a copy of the letter you write (or have already written) to your representative stating your opposition to the act. Email letters to info(at)brambleberry(dot)com. Or just post the letter to your blog like Marmalade Hills did and comment to let me know the link.
Deadline: You have until Friday, August 6th to spread the word and write your representative. I’ll draw a name out of the proverbial hat Friday morning. Good luck!
PS – If you’ve been following Elin Criswell’s Kickstarter project – Soapmaking and Beyond – she has 6 hours left to raise $335 and meet her goal to publish a soapmaking book. You can click here to learn more.
I think I missed the deadline but the more tweeting the better.
Tweeted and facebooked..off to write my letter.- sunbasilgarden
I’ve tweeted your link;D
I wrote my congressman with a revised copy of your letter but they have weird email system. Not sure how to share it that way. Will post it on my blog.
I tweeted with your link.
I would like to enter the contest (I think it’s not a good act if it does more harm than good, especially to small businisses). But that is not what I wanted to say/ask.
I would like to know if I could enter the contest, because even though I do agree with you and would like to help, I live in Holland so I don’t think there’s much I can do. I could post it to my facebook and (maybe?) sign the petition, but still.
Lots of succes,
I “signed” the petition. 🙂 Then I posted my letter to my Rep. on my blog Soapaliciouse.blogspot.com.
I tweeted and added it to my FB page.
Tweet and FB!
I Tweeted and posted on my Facebook. While I understand the perceived benefit of this Act, it’s just not a good idea at all. I hope it helps!
I have Tweeted and Posted a link on my facebook page! I hope people read it, its a great informative article! Great Contest!
Ok, I tried it, I have no idea if it worked, I posted on my regular facebook and my buisness page but it won’t let me edit and add to it. But either way a lot of people will see it and hopefully it will help get the word out. Living in California we see a lot of over-regulation. Small buisinesses barely servive even without the “Safe Cosmetics Act”.
I put it on my Twitter!
You just make the post and then do an @brambleberry at the end of your post and just like on Twitter, it shows up on my wall so I can see your comments =)

That’s awesome but I did it so long ago there is no way to retrieve my letter. Thanks for the offer though.
How do I tag my post with @brambleberry after I put it on my facebook? I’m sorta new to facebook, so I’m sure this is a “duh” question, lol.
I just posted it on my facebook and emailed you a copy of what I wrote to my state representative. :]
Here is the letter I plan on sending: http://opicana.wordpress.com/2…
I also tweeted (Opicana), and posted on FB (Kara Lindelof).
Awesome idea for a contest, and a great prize! I love liquid colors! And who doesn’t want more molds!?!
I tweeted! 🙂
