New Year's Day Blog Candy

Ok, here it is. What you have been waiting weeks for!!! You can see what all is in the box by clicking here. I did not pack the box well yet. I wanted some things showing for the photo but if I can not manage to get all these in the box I will be heading to the post office on Monday to pick up the next size larger box!! But I'm pretty good when it comes to getting a lot of "things" in a small space!!

So now what you need to do to enter is to leave your comment to this post only. I will draw a name on Sunday January 3rd using the random number generator. You do need to check back to see if you are the winner. Please don't include your email address in your comments. My blog has been receiving spam lately and who knows who may get your email address. Thanks!

The question comes from the Disney movie "A Goofy Movie". While talking in his sleep Goofy asks a question. I wondered if there really is an answer to it? Here is the question he asked:
"How many cups of sugar does it take to get to the moon?"

Of course you don't need the correct number/answer to enter. Just have fun with the question!

Good luck to you all and have fun,
Wanda

Oh my gosh, I'm first! Funny question. I think I know the answer. It taks 6,053,590,551.18112 cups of sugar to get to the moon. Based on the fact that it is 15,133,976,377.9528 inches to the moon and my measuring cup is 2.5" tall!! How's that for "Goofy" math?

Val said...

Well, everyone says my head is in the clouds most of the time so I'm almost to the moon so I think i would take about 500 cups of sugar to get me to the moon. lol
That question is too funny.

Elaine said...

lol I'm not even going to guess...just here to wish you a Happy New Year, Wanda! Thanks for a fun way to start off the year! :)

hugs,
Elaine

mgcreative said...

wow, difficult question.
but i think we don't any cup of sugar, just a spoonful to enjoy an feel like on the moon :)

SNOOPY said...

That depends on who's driving the space shuttle ... lol. The blog candy looks wonderful! I hope the number generator likes small numbers. :D

Hugs,
Snoopy :D

about a million...

Phyllis said...

I would love to win, thanks for the chance! As for the sugar...my 'guess' is it takes too much suger to get to the moon!

jimlynn said...

I don't think you need any sugar to get to the moon.......maybe just a little Sweet and Low! Happy New Year and thanks for the chance for some Blog Candy.

jmniffer said...

I don't think you can stack up enough sugar to get to the moon..instead it blows away and becomes angels kisses and pixie dust! Thanks for the chance to win some great candy.

Cristybug said...

Since it only takes my kids eating one candy bar with sugar to make me crazy enough to want to send them to the moon for awhile, I will guess one Hershey bar worth of sugar.

Happy New Year!

Hi Wanda and Happy New Year! How many cups of sugar to get to the moon? Enough to fill the big dipper!
Thanks for a chance to win your awesome prize.

DeeDee said...

Thanks for the chance but not sure that is all gonna fit..lol.Happy New Year

Aubri said...

I'd guess the sugar would be for whoever is flying there-like the astronauts since they're going to need sugar to make it though all the traveling but I'm not sure how much.

Maybe the mad-hatter had it right 10/6.

Peggy S from Ohio said...

Good question . . . no answer, but a good question! What a wonderful box of goodies! Happy New Year to you, Wanda! Hope it's one of your best!

Karla said...

Although Goofy is my favorite Disney character, I don't know how many cups of sugar it takes to get to the moon. Have a great new year.

WandaG_CT said...

And Max said "3 1/2 cups". You have been such an inspiration the past year. Happy New Year!

Anonymous said...

Hi Wanda, first of all, Happy New Year!!! And thanx for all the inspiration. I check your blog daily, I love it. As for the sugar... hmmm... My grandkids just have a small bit of candy or ice-cream and they are bouncing around like they are on the moon, so I suppose it wouldn't take much!! Thanx for the chance to win some sweet candy. Have a sparkling evening!!

Oh my gosh!!!! Our family has watched the Goofy movie so many times. We love it!!!! My boys always say Hi Dad soup when their dad comes home from work. Our guess on how many cups of sugar it takes to get to the moon is......33,251.
Thanks for the chance to win your blog candy.

If the sugar were used as fuel it certainly wouldn't take much. A candy bar gets me flying so I'd say about 10 cups! :o) Fun and silly question and great blog candy!

Amy's Stocking Stuffers said...

Yay for blog candy!

I would say it takes as many cups of sugar to get TO the moon as there are ounces of cheese IN the moon. Isn't it obvious? :-)

Paula said...

Only one. It is so sweet that it will lift you to the moon. LOL!
Happy New Year Wanda and everyone else.

Debby said...

What a good question! I have watched that movie so many times and don't even remember that part of it. LOL, I am a choc-a-holic so it would take a ton of sugar to get me there. So my guess would be a ton!
Happy New Year.
Angel hugs
Debby

jeannen2 said...

I know that my kids love sugar and it isn't too soon after that they're flying high!! Maybe one bowl of sugared cereal or one candy bar would do it! Definitely one Halloween outing!! My son eats the whole batch the same night! He doesn't sleep after that!! Happy New Year!

Daisydaze said...

It would not even take one cup for me....it would put me out like a light to dream about the moon, lol! Love the question and all the possibilities it brings up :-)

Happy New Year!

GLENDA BROOKS said...

How many cups of sugar to get to the moon? I have no idea! Maybe a bzillion? Thanks for letting me enter for your candy!

Nettie said...

I say zip all the sugar in the world isn't going to get you to the moon but I definatly would be on cloud 9 headed to the moon if I won that sweet sugary box of goodies:)

Love your blog!

Nettie

Linda Peterson said...

Answer is 3 and 1/2. Happy New Year and thank you for the chance to win a prize.

ttlterror said...

Oh wow, I haven't seen that movie in ages...let's see there's a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, little girls are made of sugar and spice, it takes only 3 licks to reach the center of a tootise pop. I'm going to say gorsh, how 'bout 100 cups of sugar and some crackers since the moon is made of cheese!!! lol. That was fun. Thanks for your blog and the laughs. Happy New Year to you!!!

StampinCathy said...

This is some sweet candy and love the question. I think it would depend on how much engery you have first and how I you can jump. Then you would have to add the amount of sugar to that! LOL Thanks for a fabulous year of inspiration and can't wait for all the inspiration you have for us in 2010! Thanks for a chance.

Susan said...

GAWRSH! That is a hard question! LOL I have no idea, but I love your blog -- thanks for sharing your great creations!

Anonymous said...

Depending on how many sugar you need to dream!! (or to get hiper!!! :)) Hopefully for me, less than a cup!
Happy New year!

n2kids said...

Happy New Year Wanda! After conferring with my research department I have found that it takes only one cup of finely granulated sugar to get to the moon. My research department is never wrong so I'm certainly this information is factual! LOL!

Traci Davis said...

What a Goofy question...haha. I think it takes a bunch of cups of sugar to get to the moon. Hope you have a great New Year!

Trina said...

Since sugar and me don't get along it would take me a half cup.
What a great way to start the New Year.
Thanks Wanda for your great blog!

ginger42376 said...

For some reason, 3 1/2 comes to mind. My question.....How did you come up with that question! lol I Love Goofy.

lisa808 said...

Happy New Year!

I'm sorry to say I don't have an answer to your question. I even looked on the Disney site! I'll take a guess and say eight.

Thanks for the chance to win that very generous box of goodies.

Vicky said...

wow! I love some of the great answers! I'm not so creative I guess! Have a wonderful New year and thanks for all you share! 7 cups of sugar will get you anywhere I would say! lol

The blog csndy looks great. I enjoy reading your blog and seeing your creations. No guesses for me as that is all it would be.

Gail said...

Thanks for the chance to won some great stuff!! Now for the answer to your question....I just asked my son and he said he thinks 100 or 200 would do it. Love Goofy too...and will never mix him up with Pluto again after I did that with Pluto when we were in Disney 2 years ago. Lets just say Pluto was not happy that I called him Goofy....LOL!!!!

Gramma Pam said...

I have NO IDEA about how much sugar it takes to get to the moon, but you've sure put together some sa-weet blog candy....anyway, I'm not much of a guesser, but just a little sugar puts me to sleep...moon, bedtime, sleep...oh, let's say 2 tablespoons. Thanks for all your tips and ideas. Love your blog.

KayC said...

lol its off of the goofie movie... how many cups of sugar does it take to get to the moon?? Goofy asks max replies nervouslly as he is changing the map without his old man knowing and replies err 3 and a half.
Have a happy new year. Fun to read your blog!

Jan said...

Happy New Years, Wanda!! This is my very first time to ever leave a comment!!! I receive your daily card ideas and love them. It would take a stocking full of sugar cubes to get to the moon.

Laura said...

My son, who is gonna be 17 on Monday wore that movie out - the answer is 3 1/2 cups.

Seriously, I can't wait to see what you are going to post next. I love all the things you make and your willingness to share. You are so talented.

May God bless you and your family this year.

Love your blogspot and the inspiration it gives me. Have a wonderful new year!!

Terry said...

If you used packed brown sugar instead of white sugar, it would stack easier... So only 9.84776 zillion!

NancyS (momsnack) said...

Sugar?? Maybe gallons of coffee!
Happy New Year!

Lucinda said...

Fun answers ladies...I honestly do not know, but I do know that I eat alot of it, and it barely gets me moving, so I think it would take a whole lot!! Happy New Year.

M M said...

If you are like mu grandson, it probably only takes 1. After a bowl of sugar cereal he jumps like he might reach the moon. Happy New Year!!!

Anonymous said...

Well, if you gave the sugar to a hpyeractive kid, it wouldn't take much at all to shoot the kid to the moon! :0)

3 1/2 cups! That was such a cute movie. Have a great 2010 and keep up the fantastic work =)

Anonymous said...

What a fun question! I would say that you can't get to the moon with sugar; even if the movie says something about 3 1/2 cups.......

I hope I'm not too late! I thought I better ask my boys about this one. My youngest said "eight billion thousand". Then he thought about it for a minute and said "I don't really know". My baby is 9 years old today so maybe he will be my good luck charm.

You have a wonderful blog and I really do enjoy stopping by each and every day.

Marg said...

Hope I'm not too late to enter!
If I have enough sugar I get hyper so perhaps 1 'Mars' bar would get me to the moon.

Sara said...

From the movie it is 3 1/2 cups of sugar;)
Great blog candy Wanda.

Betty Rubble said...

Happy New Year Wanda. Cute question. I've never seen the movie but am pretty sure the answer would be zero, since I kind of figure, whoever is asking the question must already be there!!Everyone have a safe and healthy New Year.
