If you’re not familiar with the new social media site, it is described on their site as:
“A virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.”
What we love is that you can pin just about anything you find from all over the web, and you can do it from your computer or smart phone, too!
It’s a great place to share and store party tips, gift ideas and anything else you can find and want to hold on to!
We’re excited to announce that PersonalizationMall.com has started its own Pinterest Boards and we would love for you to follow us! We’ll be pinning gift ideas, along with fun things we find from the people we follow, as well so come check us out and see what we’re “pinning!”
Here at PersonalizationMall.com, we were excited to see that March 10th, 2012 is National Genealogy Day!
Researching your genealogy can be a rewarding and interesting experience – you may even discover something surprising about your relatives! We believe it’s important to research your family tree and preserve your history by sharing what you’ve learned about your relatives with your family and the entire world!
With the “Tales from My Family Tree” Contest, you’ll be able to do just that!
We want to hear what interesting fact you learned about your ancestors when you were researching your family tree. The A Personal Touch Staff will pick one random winner from all the entries and that person will be awarded their very own Our Family Tree© Personalized Canvas Art that they can display in their home to celebrate their family history!
To enter the contest, please send an email with the subject line “Family Tree” to firstname.lastname@example.org before the contest ends at midnight on March 19th, 2012 with the following information:
- The interesting fact you learned about your ancestors when you researched your genealogy.
- Your full name and email address for where you’d like to be contacted at if you win.
We will announce the winner and share their winning entry here on March 20th, 2012.
You could tell us about how you discovered that your great, great grandpa fought in the Civil War as a General, or how a great uncle invented an important product that we still use today, or maybe you were shocked to discover your family’s last name was changed at Ellis Island … every story is interesting and we want to hear them all!
Be sure to get your email entries in before the cutoff date for your chance to win – Good luck!
PMall.com would like to congratulate Gary Lackey on winning the “My Chili is the Best Because …” Recipe Contest!
Gary submitted the following entry:
“My Chili is the best because … it was the recipe my dad always used. I have memories of making chili with my dad. We would join him in putting in more chili powder when our mom wasn’t looking. It is still something we treasure and laugh about to this day.”
It’s beautiful memorable moments like this that we strive to create with our unique personalized gifts – we always feel honored when our customers share their stories with us!
For winning the contest, Gary has won his very own personalized You Name It© Bamboo Cutting Board!
Thank you to Gary and to all the A Personal Touch readers who sent in their answers – we had a blast reading all your touching and funny entries!
With National Chili Day being celebrated Thursday, February 23rd and with the winter’s “chili” weather hitting us hard, it seems like now is the perfect time for A Personal Touch to host a chili recipe contest!
People can be very particular and territorial about their chili. Depending on where you live, some people say that real chili isn’t made with beans, while in other parts of town they’ll say it’s not chili unless it has beans. And then there are the people who like to have fun with traditional recipes and add a new twist ingredient to them like cinnamon or even chocolate!
But no chili is complete without the main staples like meat, onions and tomatoes – all of which are ingredients that require a whole lot of prep work. That’s why the winner of the contest will be awarded their very own personalized You Name It© Bamboo Cutting Board so that they have a beautiful place that they can use to create their masterpiece!
Since all “chili purists” seem to claim that their masterpiece recipe is the best in the world … we want to hear why your recipe really is the best for the PersonalizationMall.com “My Chili is the Best Because …” Recipe Contest!
To enter, all you have to do is send an email with the subject line, “Chili Contest” to email@example.com with the following information:
- In a few sentences, tell us what it is about your chili recipe that sets it apart from all the rest.
- Please include your full name and email address so we know how to contact you if you’re the winner.
Just make sure to have your emails sent to us before the deadline at midnight on Thursday, February 23rd. We will announce the winner of the contest, who will be judged by creativity and uniqueness and selected by the A Personal Touch Staff, here at the blog on February 24th.
We look forward to hearing all your special recipes … our mouths are already drooling!
