Giveaway: Pick Your Plum

They’re baaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

You know ‘em.

You love ‘em.

You give ‘em your money a couple of times a week because the deals are so fabulous.  (Is that just me?)

It’s Pick Your Plum!

Before we get to the free crap (and my bad jokes), I want to show you what their deal of the day is today:

Stamps that are perfect for holiday neighbor gift tags and for the rest of the year, too.

Oh, hey…check out that one on the bottom left.


Click on over and buy yours before they’re gone, and then come back for the rest of the post.  I’ll wait.

If you’re not already familiar with Pick Your Plum, let me give you the low down.  Every morning at 7 am MST, they post a new deal.  It’s some sort of crafty fabulousness and it’s always a great price.  Sometimes it’s vinyl…

sometimes it’s a set of owl charms…

sometimes it’s earrings…

and sometimes it’s nut cups.

Speaking of nut cups…have we discussed the fact that I had to take one of my children to buy a, uh, you know…athletic supporter because BC was out of town?  And that I was reading packages whilst the poor kid was hiding on another aisle?  And then I may have had to Google to see which direction things went?  There’s an eHow article, in case you ever need to know.  Just sayin’…  And yes we are saving for therapy.  Thanks for asking!

Where was I?  Oh yeah.  The free stuff.

Pick Your is giving a 3 winners each a set of nut cups (valued at $40, 200 cups of goodness, 50 of each color)!

Did you know you can bake cupcakes or muffins in them?  Fun, right?

  5. Therapy…. where do we start? “They’ve got to have something to tell their therapist…” is frequently heard between my husband & I. When my daughters play with dress up clothes, I allow my son to put on a dress too. He’s 3, but I’m sure his sisters will remind him when he’s older. And my FAVORITE picture of him is him sitting in a laundry basked, with a pair of clean undies on his head.

  6. My favorite ‘nut’ is my husband! Oh, you meant edible? Almonds.

  7. Cashews.

  52. o.. well it wasn’t something to my children.. but my nephew when he was maybe 6/7… (now 17).. I was in the shower and my boyfriend was home, My sister came over with her kids to drop something off but he didn’t let me know they were there.. I had a tendency to walk out of the bathroom.. un-toweled.. a nice way to put it.. and well.. my poor little nephew got a quick show before i slammed the door .. no one else saw anything thank goodness.. but its still something that i think OMG.. i am glad he never brings that up.. HAHA… needless to say.. now i ALWAYS have a towel wrapped around me even when i am home alone!

  53. I sometimes think that my girls would need therapy for somethings but I need therapy more!

  54. my favorite nut.. o gosh so tuff between a pecan and walnut!!!

  55. I tell my baby all the time how fat and chubby she is. Probably ought to stop before she’s big enough to understand me…

  58. Brazil nuts are my favorite. No chocolate coating or anything. Just plain Brazil nuts!

  59. I like them on FB!

  87. So to explain myself my 2 year old is extremely naughty lately. It’s to the point that I’ve said to my husband that maybe we could sell her off since she’s so cute but make sure to run fast before they realize how naughty she is! Granted I’d never really do it but there are moments it’s tempting!

  88. Well, it’s not what I say, it’s what I do. I make them clothes and they wear them. Now they like it, but later they will kill me for that!
    Thanks for the opportunity

  89. I’m already on their mailing list!

  90. I love the stamp, I am on their email list! In fact, I think I am buying 2! :)

  91. I like PYP on Facebook!

  92. As for therapy, my husband had our oldest daughter convinced, for almost a week, that she was actually a boy. She had no idea what a main distinguishing factor she was missing, but daddy said she was a boy. Poor girl.

  93. Right now, I”m really digging the salt and pepper pistachios!

  94. I’ve signed up for the pick your plum email

  95. my favorite nut is one covered in chocolate. (altho I’d pick chocolate covered almonds over chocolate covered peanuts)

  96. my girl is still young (14months)… but I have had to tell her that she needs to be nice to babies and can’t bite them… we’ll see if this means therapy for her as she grows. Although I think my husband will cause her more needs for therapy. He likes to joke already that the monsters that hide under beds only eat whiny kids…

  97. These nut cups are super cool.

  98. My fav nuts are pistachios closely followed by cashews.

  120. Regarding therapy: Just this morning I had a conversation with my 4 year old about why he needs to wear underwear under his pants. One of my points was concerning his zipper. I think you know what I meant.

  121. My favorite nut is pecans, toasted please!

  122. I am on the email list!

  123. I love salted cashews!

  137. I like PYP on FB.

  138. My favorite nuts are cashews.

  139. I don’t have children, but one day early into my teenage years, I was riding home with my dad and I noticed a car full of cute boys pull up next to him. Apparently I wasn’t as sly at noticing as I thought because my dad looked at me and asked, “Do you think they are cute?” I answered, as cool as I could, “They are okay.” Just then the light turned green and my dad proceeded to roll down his window and shout, “Hey! My daughter thinks you are hot! Do you want to take her to prom?” as we drove down the street. He found it hilarious, I tried to become one with the floor boards.

  140. My favorite nut would have to be pecan. Especially in pie form!

  141. I’ve been on the PYP email list for about a month now. Love it!

  142. I just liked PYP on FB!

  149. Sadly, I have no favorite nut. They all send me to the hospital. :(

  150. Hmmm possibly the time I let her throw a tantrum in public, when she stopped she realized how embarrassing it was…I told her well yeah

  151. I like Pick Your Plum on facebook.

  152. I’m sure the homemade Halloween costumes and embellished t-shirts I make for my 4-year-old son will land him in therapy someday. I think homemade is way better than store bought but he doesn’t always agree.

  153. Pecans!

  154. So to keep this rated PG13- I won’t name my favorite nut but I will name my second favorite nut which is macadamia
    mychancetowin at gmail dot com

  155. My daughter likes to orchestrate plays and imaginative play with her twin little brothers. A couple years ago when the boys were about 3, they did a “show” for me all dressed up in her pink princess outfits and tutus. I couldn’t let that go by without some pictures, could I? Their dad was not amused!

  156. It’s a tough choice, but I think I like cashews the best.

  157. I get their e-mails every day!

  158. I like Pick Your Plum on FB. ;-)

  159. Oh, what HAVEN’T I don’t that will require therapy??! Here’s the latest – my two year old boy is potty training, and…I can’t help it. It he’s running around bare-bummed, and starts to wiggle and shake and dance…I laugh and laugh. And he does it again. Pretty sure that one’s going to come back to bite me. ;-)

  170. Send my kids to therapy or me to the brink of embarrassment: taught my 2 YO to say “Daddy!” whenever he farts. Daddy is getting sweet revenge now.

  171. my favorite nut is macadamia covered in chocolate, of course!

  172. Favorite nut is spanish peanuts cleverly hidden in the DQ peanut buster parfaits.

  173. Ashley Reece says:

    I like them on Facebook.

  174. My children will be in therapy because I am the crappiest housekeeper who ever lived! They will either grow up to be hoarders because of the piles of stuff I have everywhere, or have nothing to avoid having a mess all over the place!

  175. I get Pick Your Plum emails daily!

  176. My favorite kind of nut is anything dipped in chocolate!

  188. My middle daughter is a drama queen. She was complaining about the fact that she is a middle child. I was so sick of it that I finally said, “Ok, who do we get rid of?” Look of non-understanding comes over her. I continue, “Well, since YOU hate being a middle child, should we get rid of your older sister or younger brother?” She was horrified but I’ve never heard that complaint since. Yes, I also set aside $$ for therapy.

  189. Ashley S. says:

    My kids will probably need therapy from my obsessive holiday decorations.

  190. And, I adore pistachios.

  194. 4 – My boys are my favorite nuts. But if you actually mean to eat, then I’d probably say cashews which are not technically nuts – or almonds, which are. But they’re all my favorite, if they’re covered in chocolate.

  195. Almonds! Tell my kids if they miss their ride to school with thier Dad, they have to stay home with me…bwahahhaa!

  196. Oh yeah, been there with my boys. Luckily son was old enough (16) to know how things settled. My therapy-requiring moment was asking him after he took a kick to the, ahem, groin (a “nut shot” as the kids say) if he needed a new cup and then researching them online. DH informed me that they were not like carseats that you had to replace after a crash. If you are in the mood for a good chuckle, go to youtube and watch the nutty buddy commercial.

  197. Already on the email list! :)

  198. Of course, I like them on FB as well!

  199. Therapy – yep, we all could use some. I’m guessing the most recent source of trauma is my love of singing in the car with the windows down (since the weather is so nice). I’m not sure the neighbors and other vehicles truly appreciate B-I-N-G-O and Farmer and the Dell and On Top of Old Smokey…

  200. Favorite nut — a tie. Cashews and Pistachios.

  201. I didn’t think about baking cupcakes in the cute nut cups! Thanks for the idea.

  202. I like them on FB!

  203. I’m on the e-mail list!

  204. I am a big fan of almonds! : )

  205. I’m on their email list!

  206. I have been a subscriber to Pick Your Plum emails for a while now, I love them! They are so funny with their descriptions, and the pictures are great. Hope I’m a lucky winner!

  207. This is actually REALLY cringe worthy (not just funny cringe worthy!). I have a 2 year old and a 3 year old. My 2 year old was REALLY bugging me the other day so I said, “You are driving me crazy! Just stop talking to me for a minute!” Now every time my 2 year old talks to his 3 year old sister, she says, “You are driving me crazy! Just stop talking to me for a minute!” Poor little guy is going to get a complex and never speak again!

  208. Once, in a not great parenting moment, I told my oldest that I would throw away all his toys. He had bolted in a busy parking lot as a 2 year old, and while I was chastising him for doing that and explaining how he could have been hit by a car and mommy wants him to be safe and fastening him in his car seat, he head butted our newborn baby who was in a sling on my chest. Ugh. Hormones won, I shrieked the whole way home. Really hope he forgets that moment in time!

  209. I like pistachios the best. Natural coloured, not the dyed pink ones!

  210. My favorite nut….I really love them all!

  230. My favorite nut is cashews

  231. Hubby tells me that I am scarring son #3 because he is refusing all efforts at Potty Training, continues to hide when he poops/pees in underwear, thus I have taken all his toys away, and am talking [to son] about him not getting to celebrate his next birthday; I reckon that may require him to have therapy someday. Hopefully by then he’ll be potty trained though. :)

  232. Nuts, do I have to choose??? I love Cashews, Almonds, Pecans, Brazil Nuts, Pistachios, Hazelnuts… really anything peanuts. Just no chocolate, I’m allergic to that… yes it really sucks, but I’d rather avoid the stuff than be sick all the time. ;)

  236. I’m not really a big nut fan, but my favorite kind is Peanuts.

  237. I’m a Planter’s salty cocktail peanut kinda gal– nothing fancy for me. :)

  238. Hopefully I haven’t done or said anything TOO embarrassing to my 4 year old yet, but I’m thinking some of his past Halloween costumes may come back to haunt him someday.– most notably the disco dancer with afro wig from when he was 2 :) It was HILARIOUS!!

  239. I’m on the pIck your plum e-mail list.

  240. My daughter is to young to remember anything right now.. But i’m SURE that I will do something later on that will require her to do therapy.. :\

  241. Peanuts are my favorite (salted in the shell)

  250. Favorite nut…a cashew, hands down!

  251. Donna Bowes says:

    Oh, mine are going to need therapy! Between my singing in the car and sweatpants in carpool I have probably scarred them for life!

    Don’t have kids, but as a child my dad did something that I should be in therapy for. I had a problem with wetting the bed so my dad made up a song about it… ‘Jenna Leigh Jenna Leigh I sure hope you didn’t pee’ and it went on from there. They still sing it just to embarrass me.

  256. I am on the Pick your Plum email list – it is so hard not to buy every day!

  257. I too took my teenage son shopping for an athletic support – apparently in our small town, they are rare in the summer and it was quite an ordeal – When I complained about the price, ($47! for the magic jock with attached shorts) my son smiled and advised me that he knew I didn’t really mind because I would definitely want grandchildren later on…sigh.

  258. Cashews. And almonds.

  259. I get their email alerts.

  260. I think the fact that we don’t have TV will probably send our son to therapy. “I was never able to talk with my friends about their favorite show…” Oh well…

  261. Brazil nuts.

My son is a 6th grader who tends to be somewhat messy and sloppy…..he isn’t too keen on me making sure he isn’t wearing any lunch on his face anytime I see him in the hallways….poor kid. I know I shouldn’t bother him but I really don’t understand why he can’t see or feel the fact that he has half of his hamburger on the side of his face. lol

  358. I have a 2 year old daughter and a 3 month old daughter, and I have told my oldest *multiple* times that she’s my favorite. It’s a bad habit; I used to say it all the time when she was a baby, and now it just keeps coming out of my mouth before I can stop it.

  359. Cashews are my favorite nut!

  360. I am on the mailing list! Had to get me one of those stamps- OK three!

  361. My favorite nut is the pecan. But I also love me some cashews.

  362. That is so funny! We had to do the same thing this year for football. My DH was no where to be found, so I had to go buy the athletic supporter. I am sure that my daughter thinks she is going to need therapy after watching her old parents being so flirtatious around her!

  363. I liked PYP on FB :)

  377. AmericanBrandy says:

    I had never heard of PYP until your post and I was SO bummed I missed those stamps BUT I DID order the fall color ribbons they are selling today! Beautiful and the price is amazing!! I also liked their Facebook page and signed up for their emails..which I totally would have done anyway without the giveaway of these rad little nut cups! =D BUT since you are “nutty” enough to give these away, then I’m “nutty” enough to throw my hat in the ring to win! My favorite nut is the hazelnut! (HELLO?!?! Nutella?? The chocolate nectar of the Gods!!) And it would take me hours to write how many ways I have nearly sent my kids not only to therapy but nearly straight to the looney bin. I have a college sophomore and my favorite thing to do is stalk his FB page…..”Oooo, sweetie, who is that delicious tart in the photo with you??”, “Are you wearing clean underwear today, dearie?”, “Baby, mommy misses you…are you eating your broccoli like you promised you would?” He is mortified, his friends (who know I am only giving him hell) think I’m the bomb and FB friend me…which of course mortifies my son even more! In all seriousness, we have an amazing relationship that we can tease each other so his mortification is mostly a put-on. And for the record – I miss him so much my heart hurts but it’s also swollen with pride. *watery smile* So there’s my hat. In the ring. Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for providing the opportunity to win this giveaway!

  378. Love pick your plum! I’ve ordered a number of things already :)

  383. I have this thing where I like to to embarrass my kids. My newest thing is when I drop them off at school, I make sure to unroll the window and yell, “insert name, I LOVE YOU!!!” It’s fun to watch how fast they can walk into the school. Or if I walk them to the bus stop, I make sure they get a big ol’ kiss.

  384. I am on the PYP email list. I love their stuff

  385. I don’t have any kids my when I was little my mom told the neighbors I slept with the light on and I am still not over it. So embarassing.

  386. My favorite nut is cashews.

  387. I’m signed up for emails

  391. My kids are still young enough to think I am cool, and you better believe I am!. My 8 year old is just starting to ask me “Mom, are wearing that to the school?” … Then I say, “Yes I am, I spent all the money on those cute school clothes you are wearing.”

  392. LOL @ nut cups!
    What a great prize! I had no idea you could bake in them, how fabulous for parties. :)

  396. I already Like the Pick Your Plum FB page

  397. umm I don’t have children, but when I was raised, my mom was german and a little blunt, and she would always make comments about when I worried about being killed, she was like well there is nothing you can do, no control stop worrying, some people might see that as harsh.

  398. I love pistachios and cashews

  399. I signed up for their email list!

  400. “Liked” them on FB.

  401. My daughter is under 1 right now so I still have lots of time to do damage. But for now, it’s the # of times I’ve allowed her to fall and hit her head that could account for lots of therapy sessions!

  402. Absolute favorite nuts are macadamia nuts!

  403. All us southern girls love our pecans! I need those nut cups (the paper kind, thank you) to bake cupcakes in for the craft show I am doing at the end of the month. I really, really do.

  404. My older son who has autism always inserts or re-arranges words, like this: At about the age of 7, he told us at a dinner, and very loudly, that his acorn hurt. “Your acorn, Tommy?” “Yeah, the one down there.” Points to privates. I quickly haul him out of the room. “Tommy, some folks call those your nuts–in plural– and if I ever hear you say that in public again I’ll crack ‘em for you!” Didn’t get the Mommy of the Year Award that year…… But do I get extra credit for a a two nutter story?

  405. i liked them on face book.

  406. how cute are those nut cups. i love polkadots. my favorite nuts are almonds.

  437. Why my kiddos might need therapy? Hmmmm let me count the ways… maybe one way is – how I go off the deep end and yell sometimes and they’re just like “What the heck just happened” – no kiddo needs to see that!

  444. Well I think kids will always be a little embarassed by by their parents. But for sure my chihuahua will need therapy, you see last Halloween I dressed her up as a black cat. You can see her humiliation in the pictures I took.

  445. You know how sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t. Well I always feel like one, and my favorite are pecans, specially if I eat them with golden raisins.
