I kind of discovered Pear Tree Greetings by accident. I am
I saw the Pearista button on Mommy & Molly. I clicked. I liked the modern look of their site. I answered those two simple questions with a "yes" and a nod of my head. I wrote to them. I asked to become a Pearista. I bragged that I had a whopping 41 fans on Facebook and 26 followers on Twitter. I thought it was a shot in the dark. Imagine my surprise when I recieved a quick reply saying they thought I was a great match and they would be happy to call me a Pearista! (Side note: DH keeps asking me when I'm going to make him a cappuccino. Sorry honey, that's a barista).
I contacted Pear Tree Greetings toward the end of May. I was encouraged to post about their promotion that was coming to a close. I suddenly felt pressured and thought maybe I was trying to take on more than I could handle. I emailed my Pearista contact to discuss my concerns. I thought it would be in my best interest to wait until I got to know the company a bit better before I suddenly started posting about them all over my blog. She agreed and was quick to ease my worries. One thumb up. I soon received a set of personalized note cards, which arrived very carefully packaged and included a handwritten note from my Pearista contact thanking me for being honest about wanting to wait until I'd seen their products firsthand before sharing with Mungee and Me readers. The note cards featured a modern design in pink and brown. I wondered when I had told the company about my favorite color combination. Then I realized that the note cards were inspired by the background of my blog. Two thumbs up! (Side note numba two: I showed DH the note cards and he said "Those are cute ... but where's the coffee?")
Okay, so what exactly is Pear Tree Greetings? They are a fun, fresh and affordable personalized stationery company that offers birth announcements, invitations, note cards and more!

Disclosure: As a Pearista, I have become a partner of Pear Tree Greetings, with the purpose of trying out their products, passing along their offers and providing you with a chance to win some pretty nifty stuff! They don't pay me with cold hard cash, but they will on occasion send me free products to try out as a testament to their company/commitment to service. They wouldn't expect me to promote something I'd never tried, right?
