Happy Birthday!

Its my blog Birthday today!
Or should that be blog-iversary?

This brings me to an important admission point ... I am somewhat hopeless and totally tardy at sending out creative give away's. I am in Creative 'blog give away' debt to 4 girls three through a PIF from more years ago than I care to admit, one of those three again with some fabric she sent me 18 months ago and I'm pretty sure it was a year ago on my blog birthday that Kate won something I have also not yet created!

 So for my birthday this year I have something already in existence to give away, I pleased to say I am most notably better at passing these items to their new owners in a ( slightly ) more timely fashion. ;) I do wish to let   Deb, Sally, Roz and Kate that I will still get something to them.

In light of my admission of disorganisation and mental clutter this present for one reader is most appropriate.
I have a copy of Simple Mom, Tsh Oxenreider's book, Organised Simplicity to give away. I have this book, it is lovely, I am slowly making my way through reading it. It breaks things down by room in the second part and is a really detailed systematic approach to de cluttering your house, also a lovely read in its earlier chapters with a few points that really resonated within me. 

From the website -

Organized Simplicity’s aim is to convince its readers that simple living is the absolute best way to live. Be it with house cleaning, family schedule management, personal finances, and managing the “stuff” you allow within your four walls, the only way to live well is to do so intentionally and simply. 

Just leave a comment here and I'll randomly choose a winner in a week :)
