Laurel did it. You should too.

My sassy girl Laurel took the first stab at the blog candy and guessed I used 14 matchsticks, with the figure "behind curtain number one." Boy, I shoulda taken a picture of the pile to give you guys a hint! Well, what's done is done. You'll have to live with a written clue.

HINT #1: I used more than 20. And I stored the figure in a container about ten times taller than the figure.

Y'all got until 11:59pm (Pacific Standard Time) next Thursday night to guess the answers... So far Laurel is in the de facto lead!
