Summer is ALMOST here – I can’t wait. Flip-flops, grilling, and sidewalk chalk are back in rotation as we celebrate the warmer weather. School’s almost out, simpler schedules are ahead, let’s make it a great summer!

In honor of the almost arrival of summer, I am hosting a Pinterest party here on the blog and on Pinterest – actually it’s two contests. For the next two weeks on the blog I’ll be featuring some favorite pins, some ideas for a great summer and some ideas for making things a little easier. My goal is to encourage you to collect all the random ideas floating around in your brain and on the internet on to one Pinterest board so that you can easily access all of the fun projects and ideas that revolve around spring and summer. I hope the pinboard(s) will be a great resource to you this summer – you could even delete the pins as you implement or do them, like a digital summer bucket list.

There will be two contests running simultaneously and you are welcome to enter one or both. The first contest is “Summer Fun-O-Rama” and can focus on activities you want to do with your children, family or just you! I will be pinning right alongside you, so feel free to check out my “Summer Fun-O-Rama” and “Easy Breezy Summer” boards.

The second contest is “Easy Breezy Summer” and revolves around whatever spring and summer projects, activities, organization or shortcuts that pique your interest – it could be grilling, garage organization, vacation planning or anything that sounds easy, breezy and summer-y to you.

Because a contest is always more fun with prizes, there will be two winners randomly chosen, one for each board. Each winner will receive a few of my favorite things – a Mrs. Meyers Kitchen Kitchen Basics Set  (your choice of scent), a $25 Target gift card and a Clean Mama Printables 2013 Clean + Organized Lifestyle Kit, valued at $65 (total value of each prize pack is $99.95). This contest is sponsored by me – Target and Mrs. Meyer’s have no idea who I am. Clean Mama Printables? Yeah, that’s me.

Be sure to check out the details below to ensure you get the specifics. You are welcome to enter one or both contests to up your odds. Winners will be chosen randomly, but will be double checked to make sure that the rules were followed.

Good luck- I hope you win!
