Not only are the weeks flying by, but the MONTHS are flying by as well. With school getting underway, and all that entails, September has been a blur. Whoosh!
Here are the prizes we've been playing for as we've collected points for doing the daily Small Things:
The wonderful people over at simplify101 are sponsoring this month's prize for us:
The September Most Points Winner will receive FREE PARTICIPATION in an incredible workshop titled, Quick + Simple Clutter Control. Here is the course description:
Quick + Simple Clutter Control This simplify 101 online workshop teaches you how to clear surface clutter and gives you do-able strategies to keep clutter at bay! Get inspired. Stay motivated. Make clutter a thing of your past! Throughout this 2 lesson / 3 week workshop you’ll have direct access to your instructor, professional organizer Aby Garvey, via the workshop’s private forum. With the private online community and photo gallery, you’ll get the ideas and support you need to start—and finish—your clutter control projects. The workshop begins October 19, 2010. Click here to view the workshop syllabus.
I think this will be a great way to head into the holidays - I mean, direct access to Aby Garvey???? Come on! This is a prize DEFINITELY worth competing for. Thank you, simplify101 for such a generous prize.
Now, our Random Prize winner will receive a special gift...but for reasons that I will explain on Monday, I cannot reveal it. Let's just say it would spill some beans for other people involved. But it's a good prize...so don't hesitate to enter for the drawing!
If you have never participated in the points and drawings, it is very simple and unscientific...just like me. It's Today's Small Thing.
1. Email your point total number to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just sharpen your pencil and add up what you've done this month! There's a tally sheet to help...the old fashioned kind. Download Tally1009 Please be sure that you only give yourself points for the tasks you completed on the days they were assigned. No cheating and "catching up" all at once on the last day! That would defeat the whole purpose of daily Small Things, right??
If you simply want to be entered into the Random Drawing, let me know in an email as well.
2. Leave a comment, letting us know which Small Thing you enjoyed/needed the most this month. This is a fun way to nudge the fence-sitters to go ahead and jump in next month. See? It's fun!!
You even get points for doing today's Small Thing.
POINTS: 40 for the two steps: sending your email, and leaving a comment...good toward September's total. If you've already won previously, you won't be eligible to win again, sorry.
Good luck, girls!
