Ribbon Candy

With the start of a new year, I have been spending lots of time reorganizing my workspace. With that comes some purging, so I have a bit of ribbon to give away. How much ribbon? Well, it's your job to guess.

How many yards of ribbon do you think are pictured in this overflowing jar? Leave a comment on this post with your guess. Whoever guesses the closest wins all the ribbon in the photo. (If more than one person guesses the correct number, I will use random.org to determine a winner.) Only one guess per person, please.

This contest will remain open until Friday, January 9, 2009 at midnight CST. I will announce the blog candy winner on Saturday, January 10.

Good luck and start guessing!
