I WON!!!!!!

There has recently been an an amazing contest on Living Montessori Now to win one of three absolutely beautiful materials from Alison’s Montessori:

Land and Water Form Cabinet

Premium Leaf Cabinet

Geometric Cabinet

I have been working a step at a time to make my own Geometric Cabinet.  The way I’ve been making them has been working well, but the space issue has been a problem.  And I wasn’t really looking forward to Drawer 4, which would include making regular polygons from a pentagon (5 equal sides) to a decagon (10 equal sides).

I also did a DIY version of the Land and Water Forms – forming them in the backyard using sand and water.  Again, that has worked well, but it would be nice to have them available year round, and on a regular basis for the children to repeat the work whenever they desired.

The Botany Cabinet (called Leaf Cabinet in this case) is one I had decided to skip with my children, but would love to do it if I was given the cabinet.

So I worked persistently in trying to win one of these!  This was one of those contests where you could earn extra entries by tweeting (I started a Twitter account just for this purpose), voting for Living Montessori Now on Picket Fence, naming an Alison’s product you would like, etc.  I daily took advantage of as many of those options as I could.  I felt kind of silly doing it EVERY day.  I mean, I NEVER win these things, so I should be doing more productive things!

But I won!!!  The first thing I saw when I pulled up e-mail this morning was a CONGRATULATIONS e-mail from Deb Chitwood, the face behind Living Montessori Now.  I will soon be the proud owner of that gorgeous Geometric Cabinet!!!  WOO-HOOO!!!!!!!!!  🙂

I’ll post pics of Drama Queen working with it after it arrives!  I told her about it over breakfast this morning, and she’s almost as excited as me!

I’m rather giddy this morning.  Can you tell?  😉
