Hi guys! Gosh have I missed you all! Things have been crazy busy around here, but it’s pretty much all good stuff, so I’m definitely not going to complain. With such a juggling act going on, regular blog posts got dropped. But don’t think I wasn’t working hard on all kinds of good stuff for this little space. In fact, I’ve got a giveaway today!
After my little sister’s baby shower, the good folks at Minted contacted me about doing a product review and giveaway. After five minutes browsing their website and blog, Julep (Mint & Julep–how cute is that?), I knew you guys would love their merchandise as much me. I totally fell for their business concept. Instead of relying on a team of in-house designers, they seek out and accept submissions from talented independent artists, even hosting design challenges, resulting in an awesome range of product and style options. Accepting Minted’s generous offer was a no brainer!
The (much more) difficult part was choosing what I wanted. With so many choices, it took me forever to decide! Should I order some of Minted’s adorable graduation announcements for a friend? Should I find an art print for my wall, invitations for a party, or some snappy stationary just for fun? Seriously. The decision. was. tough. But I made my choice and placed my order.
When it arrived and I opened the box, I knew I was working with a great company. I mean, just look at the box! Don’t you just love the interior printing with declaration of pride and artists’ signatures?
I was thoroughly impressed by the way my merchandise was so carefully packaged and expertly branded. Paper items can be quite delicate and it was obvious that the people at Minted wanted my items to arrive safe and sound. Not only did my items arrive in pristine condition, but as a cute bonus, they sent a stick-on gift tag for me to use!
In the end, I decided on the me defined art print as a Mother’s Day gift for my sweet mom and a wishing. hoping. dreaming journal for a friend. Both items are gorgeous; the paper is top quality, the colors are vibrant, and the printing is crisp. I couldn’t be happier.
After much debate over such a big decision, I also included an order for the Colorful Playtime Business Cards. A little bit ago, I told my facebook fans that I’ve been doing some spring cleaning for the blog. Well, it’s a bit more than that. Some big changes are in store and these fun and colorful business cards are your first sneak peek. I hope you like them as much as I do!
And now for the really fun part for you–the giveaway! Minted has graciously offered a $50 credit, good toward any of their merchandise, to one of my readers. I’ll choose the winner by a random number generator this Sunday, May 19th. Be sure to leave your e-mail address in each comment below so I can get ahold of you if you win. All you lucky ducks have to do is complete any or all of the entry steps below in separate comments. Good luck!
1. Leave a comment telling me one of the Minted products you’ll order if you win.
2. Like Apple a Day on facebook then come back here to tell me you did. If you’re already a fan, just tell me!
3. Follow Apple a Day on twitter and leave a comment letting me know. If you’re already a follower (That always sounds a little wrong, doesn’t it?) let me know in a comment.

I'm being boring but I'd hold on to it for Christmas cards! I always forget to get nice, pretty, custom ones until the last minute but if I had a gift card to use I'd be more likely to get them done on time instead of too late!
Love the business cards!
