I had so much fun with the Small Things last month, and I hope you did too! As the emails came in with point totals and random drawing entries, I had a chance to enjoy the comments and "thank you's" that came with them. Many, MANY of you said you didn't keep up as well as you'd hoped, but still loved the encouragement each day....and THAT, my friends, is what it's all about.
My goal here at Home Sanctuary is that you find encouragement, hope and a little bit of direction in your homes. Points and prizes are completely unnecessary, but they are being thrown in for fun - and for a little incentive if you want it.
The Most Points Winner for January is: Jean Michelin! Jean managed to do every single Small Thing last month, and hit paydirt with the Scatter Rug task, which put her over the top. Congrats to you, Jean! Here's an excerpt from her email:
First, I want to thank you for hosting this month of small things. It was so much fun and I found the suggestions each day to be so helpful and encouraging. Looked at as a whole, our home-keeping can seem overwhelming. Taken apart in little pieces like this makes it easier and - dare I say it? - fun! It was so helpful to know that others out there were doing the same tasks and that kept me on track. I faithfully did every chore every day and couldn't wait to see what the day's assignment was!
Jean will receive the Kindle eReader!! Woohoo!
The Random Drawing Winner is: Jeanne Williams! Jeanne will get a canvas print of her choice from my store.
Now, let's talk about February's Prizes.
Would you like to play along? Here is a Tally Sheet Download TallyFebruary to get you started. Simply print it off and fill it in as we go along this month. As you complete a Small Thing task, add your points. At the end of the month, everyone who is playing will send me their point totals for a chance to win a sweet prize.
February's Most Points winner will receive a $50.00 gift certificate to Premier Designs Jewelry, offered by one of our own Company Girls, Cathy Helms.
Here are a couple of gorgeous pieces:
Cathy is a Jeweler with Premier, an amazing company which provides opportunities for women to have their own successful businesses. I absolutely love their vision for helping women stay at home with their children while providing income for their families, and for supporting ministries around the world.
And....they have BEAUTIFUL products. Cathy can help you select the perfect pieces, or you can simply drool through the catalog until you find what you're looking for. Never underestimate the power of jewelry to make you feel pretty, pulled together, and confident.
By the way, if you would like to earn great income by becoming part of Premier, contact Cathy directly at cathyhelms41 (@) gmail.com. As a mom of 6, she loves sharing this opportunity with other women, and can give you all the info you need. In just a couple of evenings a week, you can have a significant income - and she can help you get started! This just might be the answer to your prayers.
Just one more photo to feast your eyes on, yum:
Now, everyone who participates at least once this month will be eligible for a Random Drawing prize....no point tallies needed.
The February Random Drawing winner will receive a bracelet from me - via Premier Designs jewelry! I'll ante up and order one as a gift for you - a personal "thank you" for participating. So, not only will you be creating sanctuary, you'll look fabulous doing it. ;)
