pin it to win it at the pleated poppy

haaaaappy mondaaaaaay!

my kids go back to school today, which for some people is a relief.  but for me, it means more work (since we homeschool part-time).  i love love love vacations so we can stay at home and just be.  no pressures, no deadlines.  looks like i need to hold out until spring break to get my next time off with the kiddos…  all that “happy monday” stuff was more of a pep talk to myself than anything ;)

but in the mean time, i have something fun for you!  since last week’s little giveaway was so much fun, why not have another?!

on sunday night i’ll pick a winner from all the pins.  the winner will get $50 credit to my shop!  woohooo!

    I did it! But, it automatically came up with your name instead of pleated poppy. I put both in and your name is the only thing that has a link.

      shoot! thanks for letting me know. i just fixed it so instead of writing “@thepleatedpoppy”, write “i love #thepleatedpoppy!”. sorry about that!

    Same here – I put both Pleated Poppy and your name.

    From the business side, I wanted to compliment you on this idea. What a smart way to host a giveaway!

      thanks for your encouragement! i fixed it now – just type substitute “#thepleatedpoppy” for @thepleatedpoppy”. thanks!

    I just did this! But I had the same problem – so I tagged your Pinterest name as well as your shop. :) {I am Jessica-thisblessedlife.}

    Lindsey,
    Thank you for hosting a giveaway that involves pinterest. I tried to enter all of the holiday gift basket giveaways but had difficulty because I don’t do facebook, or instagram, and I don’t have a blog or website (except for my teacher site, which I can’t link to). I do however do pinterest because it is GREAT for teachers. So this is one I can participate in!
    I have to go back and change my pin to the hashtag instead of the @ sign….so glad I read the comments!!

    Girl, I pinned that messenger bag as soon as it went up the first time ;) I’ll pin some more! thanks!

    When you tag #thepleatedpoppy
    do you add a exclamation point to the end? I noticed you did on some and not on others.

    I think I did this right…?

    I feel so ridiculous asking this question- I swear I’m not totally social media challenged.
    When I get to your store and click on a fav item, I don’t know where to go from there. There is no Pin It button, so I don’t know what to do next to create a pin. Can you or someone a little more ‘in the know’ help me out?? Thanks!

      I just got a phone upgrade, so I had to figure out this one too, since my old phone did not have this capability. I am on an Android, so I’m not sure about iPhones, or a PC.
      Get to the page of the item you want to pin. Then, on the top right of my browser, there is a menu with a “share” option. Once you tap “share”, there are a few options (FB, Twitter, etc) and “more”. I tap on “more” and a longer list comes up. One of those options is “create a pin”. Tap on that, and a few icon choices appear. Chose your icon, then it creates the Pin page where you can edit the description. Hope this helps!

    Hi Lindsey,

    I am technologically challenged, sooo, when I went to your shop to pin an item I liked, I couldn’t figure out how to, I thought there would be a button somewhere?? Anyway, instead, I went to my pinterest page and looked you up that way and then pinned an item with the hashtag to one of my boards. Does that count? I’m so sorry! I feel silly for asking, just want to make sure I”m doing it right! Have a great day & thank you!

    You can’t actually search for a specific tag on Pinterest like you can on Twitter or Instagram. (everything with those words will show up – not just those with the specific hashtag you’ve chosen).

    How will you know which are actual contest entries?
    I’m seeing this method used frequently for contests and am slightly confused.

      i can do a search under the source that the pins are coming from (my shop) and see all the contest pins as well as those just pinning for fun.if you search under pinterest.com/source/(your web page.com) you can see all the pins from your site!

    Can I pin “sold” items? I mean I realize they’re sold, but will there be more like items stocked?

    All of your items are so darling, it was hard to choose just one, but I really love this beautiful, bright bag! Thank you for the chance! http://pinterest.com/pin/374009944024181120/

    Just pinned! I too went to your Pinterest account and pinned from there….because I couldn’t find a pin it button in your shop. Hope the counts! Enjoy your CW weekend!
