Here's the deal. The next few days are going to be busy for us. Allison, who was supposed to be the judge, doesn't get back until tomorrow afternoon but we have some out of town friends coming here the same time. It's a surprise for the kids, so don't tell.LOL So I've decided to take things into my own hands and judge for myself. After looking at everyone's work, I have to say that I'm proud of all participants. You all did what I asked, did GREAT jobs, and you were brave enough to post before photos.LOL Because you all did such a great job, it was very hard to decide who to give the gift certificate to. I could just keep typing all night long but I'm just going to tell you who won.LOL
Debbie is this month's winner. Congratulations! Not only did she clean, she decluttered, rearranged, and really, went above and beyond the call of duty. She really impressed me by her willingness to keep going when the going got tough and by making that room homey and inviting. This has also inspired her dh to work on his own areas, making this achievement far reaching. Any cleaning that inspires others, should be commended. I'm really proud of you!
Because everyone had fun with my cleaning challenge, I've decided to create a second challenge starting August 1st. I'll post the rules and graphic later today or tomorrow, first chance I get.
I am blessed by you all and so thankful that I have so many friends willing to do even the yucky stuff, like cleaning, with me. Keep up the good work and I'll set up the next challenge soon.
