giveaway with pinhole press! (closed)

since easter has ended, i suppose we should prep for mother’s and father’s day coming up soon, right? ;) i think mother’s and father’s day is a great time of year to celebrate all the amazing women and men in our lives, whether they are mamas and papas, grandmas and granddads, aunties or uncles or just a really rockin’ friend who doesn’t have any kiddos of their own right now.
to get us all into the spirit, we’ve partnered with our sponsor, pinhole press, to give away a $200 credit to use towards anything in the shop to one lucky ready!
josh and i recently made these photo recipe magnets and it’s been so helpful to have some of our biggest go-to recipes right where we can see them while we’re cooking in the kitchen.  in the past, i’ve had our recipes written on scrap pieces of paper and stuffed into the back of one of our kitchen cabinets. it usually takes a good few minutes to find the recipe i’m looking for (it’s always the last one in the pile i’m sorting through, i swear!) and we’ve been discussing a way to update our system for years. so, finally! i’m hoping by seeing my mama’s pierogi recipe every time i come to the fridge, i’ll be less intimidated to whip them up more often! i think personalized gifts are kind of the way to go around these sorts of holidays, and i really like the creative options pinhole press offers on their mother’s day gift guide like the framed photo collage and filmstrip listpads.
to enter to win your $200 credit, please check out pinhole press, and come back here to comment with which item you’d love to get your own mama, or grandmother or friend, for mother’s day.  the winner will be drawn at random and emailed directly next week.  (open to US and Canada readers only for delivery purposes.)
also, get 15% off all products with the code TAZA15 through mother’s day! and, if you’re placing any orders for mother’s day, do so by april 30th to meet UPS ground delivery deadlines!
good luck!

    I would love love love to get my parents a nice family photobook. We have been on so many special trips and iphones and memory sticks are just not the same as seeing a beautiful printed book :)

  2. Jamee

    Lovin those recipe magnets!
    Crossing my fingers xoxo

  3. Aryn

    I’d love to gift my mom a brag book or the photo magnet s…we live 1600 miles apart so anyway I can get her pics of my little man is good!

  4. Theresa

    I usually do photo books but a brag book might be a fun change. Much more portable!

  5. Stephanie

    I’ve been coveting their picture books for ages! Would love to make one for Mother’s Day. :)

  6. Deborah Waldvogel

    I would buy my mom the sunny citrus gift box:) citrus smelling things are her favorite and it’s just adorable!

  7. Alysia

    The recipe magnets are an amazing idea! Every week when we go to our parents for dinner, talk always turns to food and Mom eventually ends up standing in front of a cupboard “trying” to find that recipe. This would solve everything!

  8. Kristen

    Love the notepad and the photo magnet set!! Would be such a great gift for my mom :)

  9. Jane

    I’m getting married in 30 days and those recipe magnets would be a great hit for my first mother’s day with a mother-in-law I need to impress!!!

    my mamacita is relocating from her DC home, and when preparing the house for sale the greatest loss was the photographs on her fridge. i would LOVE to share with her the photo magnet set. they would be enjoyed for years.

  16. Cheryl

    probably the brag book or one of the notepads/list pads! ;) My mom would LOVE this.

  17. Melissa J.

    All of it is so much fun! I made the photo flash cards for godchild gifts for Christmas, and they were a huge hit! I’m moving across multiple state lines this summer, so I think having the photo collages would be an excellent way to keep everyone close and be able to see them a lot when I miss them terribly.

  18. I would love to get a brag book for my mom!

  19. Erica M
