Filed under My Prize Hobby, Prize wins from the Past

For inspiration, I will try and post at least one of my past wins per week. I’ll tell you what I won, how I won it and any other hints and tips that I can think of at the time

For Today’s blast from the past I’m stepping WWAAAAAYYYYYY back… I may have mentioned this win before, I’m not too sure……

This was one of my first ever wins.

What I won: - A pink Motorola Razr Mobile phone.

How I won it: - From a Radio Contest via sms text message.

What I did: - I had to write something about what pink could do for me to make my day or something along those lines (P!NK was touring at the time) - My winning answer was to “make my husband remember it was mother’s day and buy me something from the kids” it may not be word for word but it was along those lines.

Tips & Hints - I really wanted this prize. I actually entered possibly about 10 different “words or less” answers. A couple were poems and weird things. This is the one that took their fancy. Being creative isn’t just about being “out there” You can definately stand out by using every day events that people would connect with (like a dad forgetting it’s mother’s day)!!

Note: In hubby’s defence he didn’t really forget mother’s day, but I thought it sounded like a pretty funny answer (it was mother’s day that day duh!!) and it worked. If you’re going to bend the truth it’s ok as long as it’s not illegal, immoral or in bad taste (in my opinion anyway). For the sake of fun and creativity, I say go for it.
