Fun Contest from Personal Creations: Fall is in the Air!

As summer comes to an end, I am loving these first signs of fall: the scents of apples, spices, and pumpkins along with the beautiful leaves and fun family activities. It also means that Halloween is right around the corner, bringing with it its own assortment of fun treats and decorations for the kiddos.

To help capture and share this spirit, Personal Creations is hosting their first ever Pinterest “Falloween” contest with a $500 Personal Creations gift card to their first-place winner, as well as $100 gift cards for five runners-up. While I have never promoted a contest that someone else runs before, Personal Creations has some super cute items for my favorite season that is upon us, which they sent me a sample to show you all:

I personalized my #PCFalloween decorations this year thanks to @pcgifts. Adorable! #ad https://www.pinterest.com/hardlyagoddess/pcfalloween/ (tweet this)

I just love it! Last year, I received a cute holiday canvas as a gift from a friend. It was so unique, and was personalized with our family name on it which made it so special and well…personalized!  And of course, upon checking out where I could make one of these great signs to GIVE someone else, I found that it was made from the Personal Creations site! So since then I have just loved this company for cute gifts. And now you have a chance to WIN gift cards with them! Here are the details:
