Sponsor Giveaways | Simplify 101, Amy Tangerine & Two Peas In A Bucket

GIVEAWAY | One person will receive a spot in Simplify 101′s upcoming workshop Organize Your Paper with creative organizing expert Aby Garvey.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP | Is your paper clutter zapping your creativity? If paper like bills, school papers, ideas for creative projects, memorabilia to scrapbook, recipes to try, to-do lists, magazines, and catalogs (to name a few) are piling up around you, it’s hard to relax let alone be creative. There is a better way! With the right paper organizing systems in place, you can free yourself from paper clutter and the stress that comes with it.

In Aby Garvey’s online workshop Organize Your Paper Clutter, you’ll learn a simple, step-by-step process to organize your paper. You’ll find out how to decide if you need a piece of paper (and for how long) and how to organize it so you’ll find it again when you need it. With easy to follow action steps, your paper clutter and your stress will be replaced by organizing systems you love and feelings of confidence, relief and peace of mind. (Which means you’ll feel more creative, too!)

SAVE ON ENROLLMENT | simplify 101 is offering you 15% off enrollment in their upcoming workshops. Along with Organize Your Paper Clutter, which begins February 16, 2012, they are also offering a workshop this month on how to Simplify Your Life with Habits + Routines beginning February 21, 2012. To take advantage of this offer, enter coupon code AE15 during checkout. It’s good now through February 21, 2012 and cannot be combined with any other offers. (If you sign up and win the spot in the workshop, simplify 101 will refund your money.)

Get a taste of simplify 101—and the organized life—with their FREE, simple-to-follow guide How to Create a Command Central Binder.

Born and raised in Chicago, Amy spent much of her childhood wallpapering her bedroom walls with the colorful and glamorous pages of fashion magazines. She learned how to sew her senior year of high school and what developed was her first passion: designing. Within five years, she had become an award-winning designer and founder of the popular handcrafted t-shirt line Amy Tangerine. Her collections were featured in hundreds of retail outlets, including Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and Barneys New York, and yielded impressive worldwide sales.

In 2007, her business expanded to include scrapbooking, with her fashion design work now being produced on a custom basis. Her love for sharing her clothing and now also paper crafts has taken her all over the globe and given her the opportunity to teach creative classes from Hawaii to Tennessee.

She loves traveling, leisurely bike rides and relaxing in her little Venice Beach apartment, which she shares with her boyfriend, JC, and her two Jack Russell Terriers, Buster and Bamboo. Over the past two years, she’s been working on perfecting what she likes to think of as the “art of truly living,” which includes enjoying the everyday; working smarter instead of harder; globetrotting; achieving balance in daily life; and collaborating with other creative people.
