{Update} 3M…

Happy Monday everyone! 🙂  How was your weekend?  Hopefully wonderful!  I spent the weekend organizing a closet.  Round 1 complete. Round 2: customize shelving.  So exciting.  So much so that I wore myself out and decided to take today off.  Yea right, I spent hours combing stores for organizing ideas. 🙂

Well some have asked, so I thought it was time to give an update on the 3M commercial.

*Drum roll……*

Ha. 🙂  I came in 2nd place.  *Tambourine shing* As much as I should have been elated over the idea that I was picked as runner up in a national commercial spot where I competed with hundreds of other women and men — I wasnt.  I spent the evening crying.  And yall know how I like to cry. 😉  Now I know how the runner up in Miss America feels.

Thank you all so much for the nicest and kindest of words and support throughout the whole thing!  Your encouragement and comments made the whole experience …. how do I put this …. simply amazing.  THANK YOU! 🙂

I got even more hooks today in the mail from 3M.  Guess they want me to use their stuff. 😉

Until next time…

Pure & Simple Organizing Commercial…

In case you missed it.  Not sure how you could as I have been talking about this for weeks, but okay. 😉

I have been participating in a contest sponsored by 3M Command Hooks.  The contest ended yesterday with my video/commercial submittal.  The winners are chosen by March 6th — until then — enjoy the video! 🙂

Luck or Fate…

February 8th will go down as “one for the books”.  To say that I am over the moon about that day is an understatement.  No I didnt get engaged, married, or have my first child.  😉 However, just as equally amazing things happened on that day.

1) I was informed that I made it to the final round for a commercial.  Product: 3M Command Hooks.  I have one last test to pass and plan to blow it out of the water — I really REALLY want to appear in the commercial.

2) My guest post “aired” on the Money Saving Mom‘s website.  Crystal is a well respected and well known blogger, and the fact that I landed the guest post opportunity was huge!  The site has received 1,500 2,500+ views since the article was posted! {To give you an idea of how awesome this is — my previous record for daily views sat at 65} 🙂 The feedback from the post has been amazing — it keeps me motivated and driven.  Organizing is where I belong.

….before I go to #3….

I want to add that my luck is not that good.  I have never won large sums of prizes or contests or … anything really.  The fact that these two {huge} things happened in my life…on the same day….that aint luck…that’s fate! 😉

3) Carolina played Duke….at Carolina.  🙂 Two great universities and two great basketball teams!  Raymond and I dress out in all Carolina gear and throw down like 20 year old college kids again.  Gooooo Carolina! 🙂

Thank you so much for your support and kind words!

Welcome to all my “newbies”. 🙂

Who Me? Film a Commercial? Get Outta Here…

Indeed, I thought I was on an episode of Punk’d when I got the phone call last week.  {Is that show still around?} I entered a contest awhile back {unsure of exactly how far back} through 3M Command Hook’s Facebook Page.  Im pretty sure the parameters were something like this: “Tell us why you love Command Hooks”.  Simple enough — about 15 minutes later my story was submitted and I went on about my business.  *WHAM* A few months later I get a phone call.  I could barely contain my excitement!  I didnt get much done the rest of the day as I felt like I could knock out Rocky…I was walking on Cloud 9…well you see where I am going with this.

I still need to “pass” a few more tests, but I did make it through the preliminary rounds! 🙂 The next step is to film a home video of me using and implementing 3M Command Hooks and why I think they are so great.  This would be an exceptionally easy task except my home is fairly organized.  {Who are we kidding, it is very organized} So….I am on the lookout for a project!

Come one, come all!  If you would like to be a part of the video, then please send me an email!  Im thinking a contest here — submit picture(s) and ideas of how 3M Command Hooks would be perfect for <insert project here>.  The most creative and possibly the most unorganized room with the greatest potential will be chosen!  Email me:  jennifer{at}pureandsimpleorganizing{dot}com.

I cannot wait to see what we can create together {video & organizing mastermind project}! Bahahaha — not sure where the Dr. Evil laugh came from…. oh well back to my website project! 🙂

Until next time….
