YAY for winner-Monday!! Y’all absolutely blew me away with your entries for February’s 1 For Me // 1 For You Simplified Planner. Whether you did or didn’t win, let’s all hold each other accountable to stay organized in 2013, yeah?! I have to say, I always get SO excited to see who the random number generator at Random.org will pick as the winner. And this month, I think it picked right! Without further ado, HERE WE GO…
COMMENTER #17, KATIE MEREDITH!!
Kate! I am so, so happy it’s YOU. I hope you’ll find the planner, washi tape, and pencils inspiring as you work to simplify your (new!) house cleaning schedule. Go ahead and shoot an email with your mailing address to email@example.com, and I’ll get the goods to you ASAP. :) Thanks to ALL who entered this month! And remember to come back for next!!
Happy Friday, Internet :) Things are changing around here! In an effort to enforce strict office hours for myself (no more 16 hour days, Alyse!!), I’ll no longer be blogging on the weekends. This means our monthly 1 For Me // 1 For You giveaways are going to look a little different! From here on out, I’ll be blogging giveaways on the first WEEKDAY of every month. If that weekday happens to be a Friday (which it IS!) then the winner will be announced on a Monday. That’s over a WEEK to get your entries in! I’ll still specify contest dates in each post, but wanted to keep y’all in-the-know about how this’ll work! I’ll also be posting the name of the winner at the top of each ORIGINAL 1 For Me // 1 For You blog post. This way we’ll keep everything in one spot! :)
We’re already one month into 2013, but I’m still as excited as ever about this new start!! I’ve spent a LOT of time over the past two months evaluating what worked (and what didn’t) in 2012 so I can transition into 2013 with my best foot forward. Thanks to Making Things Happen, I’ve become a loyal fan of Emily Ley and her fabulous Simplified Planner. It isn’t just a way to organize your to-do’s, your week, your month, your notes, recipes, etc. (Though it does ALL of that well!) It’s a planner based on a revolutionary verb. SIMPLIFY. It’s what I so desperately want in 2013. And my bright pink Simplified Planner is helping me do just that! We’ll get into more details (and pics!) in a second, but here are the new rules of 1 For Me // 1 For You!!
- What is it? Each month, a winner receives a duplicate of something I find fashionable, functional, or fun!
- Who can enter? Friends, clients, random readers, etc.! (Please read the not-so-fine print below.)
- How long do I have to enter? You have until Sunday, 2/10 at midnight CST to enter. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Monday, 2/11 at the top of THIS post.
- How do I enter? You must comment (and answer the question asked at the end of this post) to enter. Comments left via Facebook, Twitter or elsewhere will not be taken into consideration. (Though there may be special brownie points in store for those who spread the word and tell their friends!)
- But why? Because we ALL need to simplify. And who doesn’t like a gorgeous planner?!
Now for the goods! Emily’s Simplified Planners are ALL. SOLD. OUT until next summer. But I just so happen to have my hands on two of them! With all SORTS of goodies on the inside. The winner of February’s 1 For Me // 1 For You will win one signature binder in tan linen, one journal set, one weekly calendar set, one monthly calendar set, one to-do sheet set, and one set of six dividers! Oh yeah, and I’m throwing in three of my favorite washi tapes via Wishy Washi (pastel polka dot, pastel horizontal stripe, and cross patterned) along with a fabulous The New Black pencil pack via See Jane Work. It’s a big one this month, friends! But it’s all so dear to my heart! :)
I love how you can use washi tape on just about ANYTHING. I’ve used it as labels for my dividers, and I’m sure it’ll prove helpful in scheduling out long trips on my monthly calendar set! Plus, it’s pretty!!
I absolutely LOVE the gold foil and corners on this binder. So, soo classy. Also? Boxed wine is the new black…
And now you know :) Pretty please check out Emily Ley’s shop so you can view all the different sets up close!
And remember! You’re entering to win a tan linen binder. But all the insides are the same! Plus the tape/pencils!
Question to enter: What parts of your life would you most hope to simplify with the help of a Simplified Planner?!
