As winter begins to loosen its grip, we find the familiar smell of flowers blooming and birds singing in time. Sigh.. What a wonderful reminder of the warm summer months to come—aaaand—spring cleaning.
This annual tradition of kicking out the winter blues summons morose memories of cleaning for weeks, only to find ourselves settling for stuffing everything in the closet and locking it up tight like Fort Knox. Not this spring!
We know that you all love contests, so this year we are having a messy closet contest in honor of the celebrated spring cleaning season. Whoever has the closet in need of the most help will win a $200 shopping spree at waybasics.com with free shipping. Spring cleaning doesn’t sound so bad now does it?
How do I participate? All you have to do is take a picture of your messy closet and email the pic to firstname.lastname@example.org. From there, we will choose the top pictures and post them on our facebook wall where Way Basics fans will vote on the winner.
When is the deadline? We are accepting entries for one week, ending on March 10th. At this point, we will select the finalists and let the fans on facebook vote for the winner. Good luck everyone!
Happy Lunar New Year everyone!! This year, the Lunar Calendar Year begins February 14, 2010 and goes through February 2, 2011. The New Year celebrations last 15 days and ends with the Lantern Festival which just so happens to be the first full moon.
This year is the year of the tiger, which is 3rd of 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac. The Tiger is the sign of bravery. They are courageous and the ancient Chinese believe that they keep away fire, thieves, and ghosts which they consider the 3 main tragedies of a household. They are powerful, gracious, independent, brave, and bold. Others tigers were born in 1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, and 1998.
With the Lunar New Year falling on Valentine’s Day this year, we hope that love and happiness find you and your family!
At Way Basics, we're all about sharing the love and creative solutions for everyday living. This Valentine’s Day we're sharing a story of love that looks to the creative side of life to express those three little words. Our founder is a busy, busy guy. Many times he wakes up in the morning earlier than his wife. And rather than wake her from her peaceful state to express his love, he uses Q tips to create shapes (hearts, cupid's arrow) and messages to leave by her toothbrush so she will be sure to see it when she wakes up. The possibilities to express your love are endless, because there is more than one way to say "I love you".
Share the love this Valentine's day! Visit our Facebook page , then click "share" to post this little story on your profile. Whoever can get the most "likes" on this story will win a 3 Spinning Cube in Pink. Email us a screen print of your profile page showing the number of "likes" by noon Pacific Standard Time this Friday. We'll announce the winner by 2 PM on our page!
Think you can share the love better than we can? On our page, post your own unique way of sharing the love and whoever has the best/unique story (judged by likes) will win another 3 Spinning Cubes in Pink!
