Pinterest Contest: Happy Mother’s Day

April 16, 2012

Win up to a $250 shopping spree for you and your mom.* Just repin this image below to a Mother’s Day board, follow the instructions, and leave a link to your finished board in the comments below, or the pin on our Pinterest board.

Let your Mom know why she’s the best with this board filled with images that remind you of her. Don’t have an exact photo? No worries– be creative with these prompts and have fun!

We’ll announce the winner on May 4, so you and your mom will have plenty of time to shop together, before or after Mother’s Day. For every 50 entries we see, we’ll add $50 to the grand prize, up to a total of $250. So after you share your board with us, be sure to tell your friends and family to enter too!

*Or mother figure, or moms. Whoever you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day!

    Oops, I realized it said to leave it as a comment on the pin, not here on the blog. I just put my link as a comment on the pin instead, but I can’t delete the one here (above). Sorry about that. (I’m not trying to enter twice…)

    I left my comment on the pin board but am leaving it here too to be safe because Pinterest has been acting flaky today and not saving all my comments.
