The Contest for my 25th Pinniversary

Sorry I am a bit late in posting this but I was trying to get a logo made for my blog (it's not great but I needed something until I could create something more professional). So I had the idea about a week ago to have a giveaway to celebrate making it to 25 unique pin creation attempts. I honestly didn't know if I would stick to it this long but I have had such good feedback from friends and my posts have been seen by people all over the world (Yeah Blogger Audience tracker) I knew I had to stick with it. I also have been following other bloggers and wondered how they got so many followers, and I know a few of them do giveaways from time to time to drive up viewership and comment posting so I thought I could jump on the band wagon.

So my give away is a $25 iTunes gift card, guaranteed to be active and shipped to the winner within 2 business days so here is how you win:
1. Join my website as a follower. There is a link on the right hand side to become a member, it's super easy to do and you'll get updates when I add new content.
2. I'm going to post 5 different options below for what I should do for my 25th pin recreation, you have to leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your vote for which project you think I should do.
3. I will put the number of comments in a random number generator and the person whose comment number was chosenwill win the card. (i.e. Your comment was #38 out of 75 and the #38 comes out of the number generator you would be the winner). You have to be a follower so I can contact you if you win. If this goes well I'm sure I will do more.
4. When you receive your gift card if you could take a picture of yourself holding it, I will absolutely put it up on the blog!

So here are the five finalists for my 25th Pinniversary:

Neiman Marcus Brownies

Sugar Glazed Pecans in the Crockpot

Tomato Basil Soup in the Crockpot

DIY Nail Polish

Cutting glass bottles with string (and fire)

Now all you have to do is follow my blog and comment on which pin you want to see me try and recreate. Voting starts now 7/16/12 at 11:00am CST and goes through 7/18/12 at 11:00am CST. I will post the winner of the gift card and the winning pin then and have the final pin results up later that evening. Good luck and thanks for playing along!


  1. i vote for cutting a bottle with string, it just sounds cool. :)

  2. Sugar glazed pecans in the crockpot.

  3. Sugar glazed pecans...I can't wait to try them.

  4. I'm going with the sugar glazed pecans or the NM Brownies.

  5. Definitely the bottle. The soup looks good too, but doesn't quite have the danger factor you hope for when someone else is doing the work. ;-)

  6. If you could make the nail polish in the crock pot, I'd be all about it. So, I'm voting for pecans in da crockpot. :)

  7. In case you are a stickler for your rules and official voting times, I vote the bottle. Yes, I love me some iTunes! I look forward to all these posts though.
