Appleberry's Attic Giveaway!

While I've always had a love/hate/fascination with the whole facebook thing, I will say that one good use is the way you are able to reconnect with old friends.

One of those friends is Jen, who I really met through other friends in high school. We kept in touch for a while but had lost touch until a couple years back we found each other on facebook.

She and her husband recently started a business called Appleberry's Attic. They create beautiful signs, refinish and paint tables and furniture and even do some mason jar crafting. The biggest, busiest part of their business seems to be the signs though. Who doesn't love a sign with some good words on it for their home, right?

As soon as Jen officially launched her business outside of selling at occasional sales I was in line for some signs and three of her lovelies sit in my kitchen.

Business continues to get better and sooner than later they plan on launching an etsy shop in additon to the occasional sales and facebook page they are already using for business.

I'm excited to have the opportunity to help her just a tad with promoting her business by doing a little giveaway. Jen would like to give away a Valentine's sign to two lucky readers this week in celebration of her birthday!

There are three ways to enter and one must leave a comment for each entry!

#1 Like Appleberry's Attic on Facebook.
#2 Like Simplicity In The Suburbs on Facebook.
#3 Take a look at some of Jen's other signs on her facebook page and tell me which one you love the most.

That's it! And you're in! I'll choose a winner on Sunday Feb. 5 and winner's signs will go in Monday's mail.

If you're interested in other Appleberry's Attic signs, contact Jen on her facebook page about ordering them and tell her I sent you for a 10% discount.

Finally, don't miss my other Valentine's giveaway for the Tiny Prints valentines cards. Ends Tuesday night so there's still time to go enter to win some cards for your kids or your classroom.

Now I'm off to keep working on laundry and emails and paperwork and all that goes along with being away for the weekend. Trying to pretend the lack of groceries thing will solve all on it's own.

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post or giveaway, Jen is a friend of mine and that's it!

My Favorite would be...

Friendship isnt about whom you've known the longest...
Its about who came and never left your side.

I like Appleberry's Attic on FB and I also already like your page. My favorite sign of hers would be the scripture sign. "I loved you at your darkest."- Romans 5:8 How beautiful!! What a wonderful reminder of how much God loves us, even at our worst. :)

Alicia's Design: I liked both on FB and I LOVE all Jen's signs! I really love the one that says "Read me a story, tuck me in tight, say a sweet prayer and kiss me goodnight!"

I liked Appleberry's Attic on facebook and I already like Simplicity. I have been looking for signs like this just recently. I like so many of her signs but my favorite is P.S. I love you.

Wish they had a "love" button for both these pages!

My favorite sign is; "You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it"

I need to remind myself of that regularly!

I like the Family signs -- and I want one. Or I'm going to do one of those vinyl wall stickers.
Anyway, ours would say: The Brutger's -- Est. 2004. What a cool thing to put in our living room or entryway.
Would love to WIN one!! :)

I "liked" them on facebook and I already "like" you on facebook (not sure if that counts!) I looked at their facebook page and I like the "P.S. I love you" sign! I also think the chalkboard squares are pretty cool.

I adore the Winnie the Pooh sign (" are braver than you believe...") and have wanted to paint that on my littlest little's wall since day one. What beautiful art she does!
