Weekend links

Phew… I admit that I’m a little relieved Project Simplify is done (only because I’m ready to write about something else for a bit). But I loved seeing your progress, and I hope it made your home a happier place to be. I’m so grateful for each of my readers! Thank you for being here.

The winners of a signed copy of my book are: Shari, Nony, Matt, ClutteredMama, Maria, Beth, Erika, Amy, RHome410, and another Beth. Congrats! I’ll be in touch soon.

And thank you to the other sponsors of Project Simplify 2012: Lay-n-Go, the Joy the Baker Cookbook, and NeatDesk. You’re all amazing!

  1. ClutteredMama says:

    WHAT?!?! Yesssss! This is so exciting!! Thank you so much!

  2. Tsh, Thank you so much for doing Project Simplify this year! It helped us clear out and keep sane during this crazy time in the semester.

  3. Thank you for these thought-provoking links — I claim all the truths there! I am a communicator, story-spinner, narrator…”blogger” just doesn’t cut it.

  4. I love your weekend links. Thanks for sharing. And can I just say, I love “One Bite at a Time”? You inspire and make it so easy to start implementing changes right away. I forgot about going paperless. And we have recently trashed the paper towels and we are back to cloth napkins and dish cloths.

  5. YAY!!!!!!!!!!… And I just yelled that out loud, too, and my kids thought I went crazy. 😉

    I’d forgotten winning a book was a possibility, and I’m SO thrilled. I was about to order one, after having one from the library and loving it, but knowing I could never get all I wanted out of it in a short-term possession. Yay, yay, YAY… Thanks! Also, thanks especially, again, for my newly organized sewing room and understair closet… And the resulting motivation to keep going and do more.

  6. Love that quote! such a cool picture too.

  7. Thank you for having Project Simplify. I was able to organize spaces that I would have never gotten to otherwise! 🙂

  8. Oh, LOVE the control link! And Emily writes so well. You pick good stuff 🙂

  9. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome site!
