This Week’s Giveaway: AppleCheeks covers in Sailor Blue & Eucalyptus

AppleCheeks diaper
So yesterday was an exciting day in the Mothering Grace family, as we found out we’ll be adding a little boy to the mix in September! To celebrate, we’re giving away two covers in AppleCheeks fabulous Sailor Blue & Eucalyptus… but don’t worry, mamas of girls, we’ve found both colors look fabulous on our little Grace. The navy is often the perfect diaper under a dress (it doesn’t even need a cover over it!), and the eucalyptus pairs great with pink! Good luck!

This week’s prize: one AppleCheeks cover in Sailor Blue & one AppleCheeks cover in Eucalyptus, in the size of your choice

Why you want this prize: AppleCheeks envelope covers are the best, and these two shades have been discontinued so they won’t be around for long! This is your last chance to snag these two great colors.

Details: winner will be chosen using a random number generator. Deadline for last “comment” is Friday, April 23, at 9 p.m. PST. Winner to be posted Saturday, April 24, before noon and has 72 hours to claim prize. If no response, a new winner will be selected and announced the next day.

Spotlight: what we’ve been up to!

So several of you noticed our absence from blogging.  But not to fear, we weren’t just loafing around.  I’ve been busy trying to add products to Mothering Grace, do some restocking, and make updates and do some much-needed maintenance on the website.  We’ve also completed our move *back* into the house/showroom, which was quite a task.  Remodeling is great, but running a business out of a Pod in the driveway is not 🙂

My to-do list still isn’t done, but here’s what we’ve tackled so far!  We hope you approve!

new items in the store:
Rockin’ Green detergent: classic & hard rock
SwaddleDesigns burp cloths and swaddle blankets
a gently used/clearance section
AppleCheeks waist extenders
Tiny Tush Chinese prefolds

recently restocked:
AppleCheeks covers & inserts
Thirsties duo wraps (prints & solids)
Planet Wise products
SoftBums, including Later Gator print

coming soon…

AppleCheeks swim diapers (available now for preorder)
Modest Milk restocking
Kissaluvs Marvels AIO diapers

new SoftBums prints

Cal Baby restocking, plus new products: bug repellant, sunscreen, and more

and a few changes we’ve made to the site…
modified packages: we changed a few of our packages to hopefully make them more appealing.  Our Old-Fashioned Bargain prefold package now comes with Thirsties duo wraps instead of the older sized Thirsties covers, as we’ve seen the duo wraps are much more popular.  We also modified our All the Accessories package to reduce the cost.

easier to view inventory: we realized some people were getting confused about our available stock, so we made changes on each product page to hopefully make our inventory more apparent

color charts: while you can view a detailed picture of each color by selecting it from the dropdown, a lot of people didn’t realize this, so we’ve added color charts to each product page to make selecting your colors easier!
