It was a lot of fun yesterday - counting up things as we put them away! I was surprised - no, SHOCKED - at how easily and quickly I was able to deal with that many items that were out of place....and how good it felt to get it done so fast!
We had a bunch of Company Girls who participated and reached 100 things (and beyond!) so I had to draw a name for the winner of the "Nest" print. I wish I could send one to each of you! I'll have to do this again so that everyone will have more chances. In fact, read down to the bottom for a another chance today, why not!
The winner of the canvas print is Deborah, who submitted her count along with a poem! She wrote:
I love it! And the fact that no dogs were harmed is icing on the cake. :) Thanks for the smile Deborah! Send me your address and I'll get your print to you.
I'm not posting a NEW Small Thing today, except to challenge you to continue yesterday's motivation to go for picking up as many items as possible. For our winner, I've got a SAMPLE sized print of this:
It is 7" square, rather than the usual 14", and it is a great reminder that all the little things (like picking up 100 items) really do matter when they come from the heart. (The full sized print is available here for purchase.)
I will enter yesterday's participants into this drawing AND any new participants who can pick up at least 100 things around the house today. Just leave me a comment with your tally number and I'll announce the winner on Monday! You may enlist help from family members because cleaning is a team sport.
