You could win prizes! (or not)

Ok, so I said I was going to start posting more videos and then I never did. I really am going to be doing a lot more soon, as a featured vlogger at SheKnows.com's Mommalogues starting next month. Thankfully I have all this time to practice (and I'll need it) and can you please ignore all my "but, ums" okay?

Anyway! I get to sneak away this weekend to Chicago for the Kenmore Blogger Summit, and they have a bit of a challenge going on for the attendees and our readers. Watch the video below and see how you can possibly win Sears gift cards! I get to pick 5 of your videos that I will then submit to Kenmore by Wednesday January 18. Yeah, not much time, but you don't even have to post them on your blog or anything (and as you can see from mine, I didn't even bother editing it, keep it real!) just email me your short video demonstrating an unusual way you use an everyday household appliance. Easy and fun.



More details:
  • Open to US entries only
  • Prizes will be $100, $50, and $25 Sears gift cards (Kenmore will choose the winners)
  • Important: you don't have to have a Kenmore appliance to participate but you must cover up other branding so that it doesn't show in the video (I did that for my fridge... ahhh... see?)  
  • Email your video to me no later than 5PM CST Wednesday January 18 via stephanie.precourt@gmail.com



And of course, if you don't have a video camera and still want to share your kitchen secrets, feel free to do so in the comments below. They won't be eligible to win prizes, but I still might have a chance to share them with Kenmore this weekend. And it's fun and stuff.

ED: I am so tempted to delete this post but I'm leaving it up because I love the kids in it. But, I was very disappointed that after doing the video and taking the time to upload entries to Kenmore at their request, they didn't even acknowledge my video or even say thank you. Or even act like they even watched it. And I have a feeling no one even did. I'm just bummed about it and well, that's all. After the summit, I don't plan to work with Kenmore again and wanted to keep it real here. Thanks for understanding.

Disclosure: I'll be staying at a hotel courtesy of Kenmore on Friday night and provided with meals and other goodies at the summit.

  5. That's EXACTLY how it sounds around here most of the time :) Such a fun video! OK - I can't think of anything unusual I use my appliances for but this does sound like a fun project too.

  10. I love this. Mostly because you look so real. Before you even started with the appliances, I could hear the kids off in the background. Your house doesn't look like you spent 2 hours staging it for your video. It looked like, well, my house. In short, you rock!

    1. Oh thank you! I was tempted to scan to the left of me and the sight of my dining room! Oh dear.

  13. I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU IN MOTION! Can you believe we've never met in real life? This just made me happy, happy, happy.

    If I had an idea for this, I would so submit. Maybe something will come to me in the next few minutes.

  15. I'd like to start doing more video too, but it's time-consuming (and I'm very pregnant!)...so I end up writing instead. :)

  16. Now if you could only get that noise into a pair of headphones. Kid cancelling headphones would be a big seller, I assure you. It was awesome seeing you again this weekend!

    1. Thanks! I got it at Marshall's, actually! (It's like a TJ Maxx or Ross if you don't have one near you!)
