A couple years back I got coal in my stocking. Yes, I said coal. From my mother-in-law. I’ll let that digest for a minute… Those of you that know me know there is no way I could have done ANYTHING at all to deserve that kind of treatment. 365 days a year I’m a textbook angel. (and a great fibber) I still have that lump of coal stashed away though, she’ll get it back someday one way or another!
You know what I really wanted in my stocking? Chocolate snacks or video games! Who doesn’t?! It should be so easy – they even make this new pre-bagged candy-coated version that doesn’t melt in your hand (or stocking)! What is this marvelous invention called? Duh. M&M’s
As I’ve hinted here, the xBox One is on my Christmas wish list AND the family all knows we love the Forza line of games. This should be a no-brainer, right? Like the old saying, if you want something done right, just do it yourself.
First I have to figure out how to get myself the xBox One. That’s where this great Pixel Art Contest comes into play (pun intended). All you have to do is use M&M’s to create your own ‘pixel art’ of something video game related and you have a random chance of winning an xBox One of your own along with some more M&M’s!
In case you haven’t seen them before, you can see how I created a number of entries by scratch (no cheating with online beading patterns!).
You can also see what other people are making with their M&M’s. To be honest I had so much fun with them, I even created a stop-motion video of one of the company logos!
Next is to pick up a copy of the new Forza 5 since I’m positive I have the contest all wrapped up. Nothing wrong with this plan, eh? Even better, right now you can get a $10 eGift card via text when you buy Forza 5 and $8 worth of M&M products.
