So…lately the posts have been a bit heavy.
Today I’m starting an “I Love You Jason” project.
My husband is Mennonite.
In fact, I’m the first non-Mennonite that I know of to marry into his family.
He’s a man of simplification.
Keep it simple.
Keep it organized.
Keep it clean.
Don’t keep more than you actually need and use.
And he is so gracious about my collecting issues.
I’ve narrowed my potential hoarding scenarios down to a few specific categories:
Clearly–all of those are “essentials” and I’m not ready to pare down much in those areas.
They make me smile.
They add a bright spot to my day.
Let me give you just a small sampling:
My friend Jenn says I’m nearing “it’s-a-small-world” status…
So in an effort to honor Jason’s desire to clean-out-clear-out-not-accumulate….
For the next few weeks, on every Friday I am going to offer several free items to those who are interested.
Mind you–these items may not be BRAND new (but I promise they will be in good condition).
The winners will be picked at random.
In fact–I plan to let our kiddos pick the winners so that they can be involved.
If it is a big item, you need to be local (Oregon) and able to pick it up.
If it’s a smaller item, like a book, I’ll be happy to ship it to you.
To enter…subscribe by email so that I have your email address (see the side panel for the subscription box. You’ll need to confirm when Feedburner sends you an email).
Then leave me a comment with which item or items you’re interested in.
On Sunday, I’ll let the kiddos pick a name at random and if your name is picked…
You are the winner !!!
This Friday’s options:
2 New boardbook copies of Liz Curtis Higgs’ The Parable of The Easter Lily:
The Lamb by John Cross (and excellent pre-Easter read)
