Thank You to Our Sponsors + A Freebie!

Congratulations, once again, on accomplishing a huge task! You created 30 lists in 30 days. You will be able to look back on the last few weeks and see what was going on in your world :)

We want to take the time to thank our wonderful sponsors. They helped us do several things before the project even began, and they stuck with us throughout this journey. We hope that you visit each of the challenge sponsors to say hello, thank them for sharing information about 30 Days of Lists with you, or even to lurk around for a while. You can get to their blogs by clicking on the images below.

In addition, we would like to thank each of you who shared information on your blogs/facebook/twitter/around the kitchen table. Without you, this project wouldn't be what it is right now. Be sure to keep the blog button up so others can find you :)

We would also like to thank Boygirlparty, Wild Olive, and Batzy for supporting 30 Days of Lists through interviews, giveaways, discounts, and A FREEBIE! Yes, you heard right, Batzy was lovely enough to donate some beautiful printable to-do list sheets for all of you to use!

Victoria of Bazty makes amazing vector images, she does portraits, calendars, invitations, anything! She will also design you blog buttons, if you're in the market!

She decided to help celebrate the end of this challenge by giving you FIVE printable to do lists. Yes, FIVE. She hopes to encourage you to continue making lists, even if you don't have a daily prompt. How sweet is that??

Grab your FREE PRINTABLE LISTS and cross it off your to do list for the day!

P.S. Please take a few moments to fill out the feedback form. We really need your feedback to hold another quality challenge/event like this in the future. Thanks!

Wild Olive Giveaway Winner / Slideshow

Here, it is! The moment you've been waiting for! 

But first! A gentle reminder that these printable lists, along with A TON of others and even more embroidery patterns, are available in the Wild Olive shop. Mollie would love to hear from you, so if you do order, be sure to let her know you found her work through 30 Days of Lists ;)

Kim Hutton aka Little Red Emo Hood 
(Please e-mail Kam in order to claim your lists!)

Before you go, you may spy some of your handiwork in this (super long--there are darn near 2,000 photos in the Flickr group pool!) beautiful slideshow of all the lists in the Flickr group. Wouldn't it make a great screensaver?

Another gentle reminder to please fill out the
feedback form for 30 Days of Lists.

The Final Prompt: Today's To Do List

Anticlimatic? I don't think so!

What brought us to this challenge? Our love of lists. The most common list mentioned in the comments this month was the ever-powerful 'to-do' list. We love making them, crossing things off, adding things we didn't originally have on the list just so we can promptly cross it off, and abandoning them when the day gets away from us.

Let's celebrate the to-do list with writing down what we ought to do today :) 
Remember, this is day thirty of the 30 Days of Lists made it!

List 30: Today's To-Do List
It reads:
Upload my 365 photos, write back to my pen pals, watch Modern Family, not get sad that it's the 'last day' of #30Lists, eat something yummy for lunch (because yesterday's lunch was terrible), clean off my desk, snuggle, tweet/chat/email, order some Warby Parker glasses, have fun, do something adventurous, smile. 

Thank you, again, for your participation! We read each of your comments (they come directly to our email!), love browsing the flickr group, and lurk on your blog pages when you post links :)

List 29: Favorite Foods

You may have noticed .... We didn't do a lot of (any?) 'Favorite' list prompts.

But, for food we will make an exception.

You did read about Kam and her love of tacos, right?

So, for today, indulge your love of all things edible.

What are your favorite foods?

30lists  010

I could eat salad every day if someone else made it. No question ..... and then wash it down with some ice cream .... Ha!

As I mentioned when showing y'all my book of lists, I'm using a 7x9" 3 ring binder, with the half-page minimal theme from the 30 Days of Lists pdf downloads.

Please head on over to the 30 Days of Lists Flickr group to see what other participants have come up with and add your own list!

Interview and Giveaway with Mollie of Wild Olive!

I don't know if you noticed the really cute sheets of paper I've (Kam) been using...the ones with office supplies with little faces? Yeah, those! They're adorable, right? Well, Mollie of Wild Olive knew I was using them for this project, and she offered up a giveaway for those of you participating in the 30 Days of Lists Challenge!

But first, I want you to get to know fall madly in love with Wild Olive and Mollie! I asked her a few questions, interview-style, and this is what she has to say:

Tell us a little about Wild Olive:

Wild Olive is where I share all of the crafty things that I'm working
on. My true craft love is embroidery, but I also really like hand
sewing things from felt, and any time that I can help others find this
love, I'm thrilled!

Where do you get your inspiration for your printable lists?
Well, if I'm going to have a piece of paper telling me what to do, it
had better be cute! So I look for things that are sweet, as well as
the opportunity to include silly puns. Oh, and sometimes people send
me ideas for things they'd like to see. I love that!
Are you a lister? Or are you more of a remember-as-I-go type of person?
I am definitely a lister. I make lists for everything! But...I don't
live and die by these lists. Writing them out is therapeutic, and
although I refer to them, I can move on without checking things off.
Do you do other daily journaling?
My blog is the only real journal that I've ever had success with, and
it took years before I got into the groove. If you go through my room,
however, you'll find lots of half-filled journals!

 Time for another giveaway!
