Hey, Company Girls!
I'm so excited about starting our "Sanctuary is in the Small Things" posts tomorrow! Your emails and comments have been great...keep them coming! Just as I expected, you girls have some smart ideas and it's going to be fun sharing them with each other. Aren't our little sanctuaries going to be wonderful this year?
It will happen, one small thing at a time.
So how am I spending the last day of 2007? Why, polishing up my Small Things list, of course!
And rounding up some sweet rewards for you! I will unveil January's prizes tomorrow, and I know you'll want to join in doing the Small Things as often as possible, especially when you see what's in it for you (besides that warm feeling of sanctuary greatness.)
Just a couple of last-minute notes:
1. Get your basic supplies together.
Remember, the list is short but important. You want to be able to whip out a Small Thing without breaking a sweat. Think like June Cleaver.
2. Know how to add by tens.
Points will be given each day for accomplishing a Small Thing. I can't add very well, so I'm making it easy by making them nice, round numbers: 10, 20, 30 points each. You can get a school-age child to help you keep track if you run into problems.
3. Subscribe in an email or feed.
I'd hate to have you miss out on an easy Small Thing that would help you rack up points AND make your home fabulous. Click on one of the icons in the sidebar and follow the steps. That way we can TRULY be Company Girls every.single.day. But still come by and visit so you can hear my really cool music.
4. Bring your friends.
The more, the merrier. I love seeing the Company Girl button around the blogosphere! It makes me realize that I'm not alone in my hopes and dreams for what I want my life to be. We share a vision for our homes and a passion for the people we love. It is heart-warming to know we have kindred spirits all around the world. Why not share it even more?
5. Know that I am praying for you.
I woke up last night with my Company Girl names on my heart. I was thinking of each blog I've visited and the dear women behind them. You have families and stories and dreams, just like me. And I pray that this year will be a year of small steps toward big things for all of us. I believe it will be.
Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve!
